Cannot add user without admin rights as an owner of Stream

Copper Contributor



I wanted to grant Stream admin permission to my colleague. Her account is a normal account without any admin role. But when I try to add her via Stream admin setting, following error message is displayed.


Could someone help me with this, please?


I cannot imagine that Stream owner must be global (or another service) administrator first.


Many thanks in advance!

Is it possible that the user you are trying to add isn't licensed for Stream? That error message makes it sound like we are doing a license check in that case, and the user isn't licensed for Stream?


Can you ensure your colleague has a Microsoft Stream license assigned to them?

No, it is not possible as the user was testing the Stream service with me (was able to watch and upload videos). I checked her license and it was assigned.


The same error was displayed when I tried to add any of my colleagues as Stream admins. The only colleague I was able to add without problems was the one with the Global Admin permission which is not acceptable for us.


Could you please help me with it?


Many thanks!
