(CM) Support tip>Term store creation in SharePoint online environments

Microsoft have made a security change to their SharePoint online admin centres,  specifically around the behaviour and governance of access by external users.

The MicroFocus SharePoint integration requires “everyone” to be a contributor on the created term store and without this access users will get the following error when attempting to create termsets via our configuration tool.

Message: Error creating the term sets for Group HPE Content Manager(92) and Term Store Taxonomy_L8mHqmLpLZZPthqeJ6FUiA==. Details: Error creating terms for termset Record Types in group HPE Content Manager(WT) in termstore Taxonomy_ L8mHqmLpLZZPthqeJ6FUiA == for dataset ID 92. Details: Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

They mention a workaround in the below tech article by adding external users to the new “everyone” group. 


Microfocus are working on a fix for this as a matter of priority
