Access denied to SharePoint site

  • Hi,


    I am a global administrator on my Office 365 account and would like to know about how the access to the SharePoint online works.


    Currently, what i see is that whenever i create a new user account and assign all the licenses (including SharePoint online), the users are still not able to access the Team Site, by default.


    Adding the users to appropriate SharePoint groups is the only solution or is there any configuration which an administrator can do to let all the users access the Team Site by default.


    Also, if i need to add all the users to a SharePoint group, are there any powershell cmdlets which i can leverage, just the way i do for Exchange Online. Please guide me on this.




  • Hello Sandeep,

    Thanks for coming to the communities with your concerns about users receiving an access denied error when attempting to gain access to the Team Site.

    If you have an Enterprise account, you will have to manually add the users to the Team Site. You may add them to a default group, grant the user permissions directly, or add the users to a security group. You would need to add the security group to the Team Site manually.

    I will continue to monitor this thread if you have any additional questions.
