Assigning SharePoint Admin role to an existing Office 365 User

Assigning SharePoint Admin role to an existing Office 365 User will allow this user to install apps in Office 365 tenant and create sites. This access is only required until ORIGAMI sites are created and apps are installed. You can downgrade this access afterwards.

NOTE: You will need to create an AD username for the ORIGAMI user, for example: origami_account@[your tenant URL].onmicrosoft.com

Here are the steps on how to do that:

  1. Log in to the admin center of your Office 365:
    https://admin.microsoft.com/Adminportal/Home

  2. In the admin center, go to Users > Active users page.

  3. On the Active users page, select the existing user you created earlier in your AD. In the flyout pane, next to Roles, select Manage roles.

  1. Click Save changes.
