New Communication Site > Exception Access Denied [SOLVED]

Occasional Contributor

Hi!

I'm trying to create a new Communication Site in my tenant.

I see option for create this site, I compiled fields and it says is ok to proceed.

 

But, when I click on finish, browser sent message to exit or remain in page and in every case, it broke page with "Unable to reach https://_layouts page"

 

I searched for call in F12 and found this:

POST to https://[tenant].sharepoint.com/_api/sitepages/publishingsite/create

ERROR :

code > -2147024891, System.UnauthorizedAccessException
message >Access Denied, etc etc

 

My account is tenant administrator.

I've checked licence and it's all ok.

 

Tryed with all browser (edge, ie11, chrome).

 

Any Ideas?

 

Thankyouguys!

 

EDIT: Solution

The problem was access denied on root site collection of tenant..

Mysteriously, even if I navigate without problems to https://[tenant].sharepoint.com/_layouts/sharepoint.aspx, call to https://[tenant].sharepoint.com/_api/sitepages/etc.. was forbidden.

If I navigate to https://[tenant].sharepoint.com/ my account receives access denied.

So, I give Site Collection Administrator rights to my user (with SharePoint Administration) and my new Communication Site is here!
