Creation of new admin role in Exchange Online Protecion RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    I am brand new with the Exchange Online Protection solution.

    I want to create a new admin role since the default one do not offer teh specific rights that we need for a group.

    I went in Exchange admin Center > Permissions > Admin role and we can only edit the actual default groups.

    I need to be able to create new one.

    I did read somewere some powershell command but, since this is cloud base solution, i have hard time to believe that there is no option to create a custom role on the actual web interface of EOP.

    Anybody have a solution for that ?

  • Hi,

    as far as I can see you can't create roles in EOP because there is access necessary to Exchange Online. EOP has only limited access to Exchange Online or no access. It seems to me that managing roles is not part of EOP.

    To be sure you should open a support case in the admin center.
