Universal Print - Can't admin if global admin doesn't have a license

Copper Contributor



I've run into an issue with Universal Print administration. We have a M365 Premium membership which includes UP, however the account that I admin Azure/Entra with is a global admin and has no licenses assigned to it because, well it's a global admin! The problem is that a user has to have a UP license or they can't admin the service. To initially set it up I went in a ordered a license to see if that was actually the problem and sure enough it worked. But this is kind of ridiculous that we should have to pay for a license to configure a service. My global admin doesn't have an office license, but I can still get in and administer my 365 tenant, so why should I have to purchase a license to configure printing?
