Adding a user to the sharepoint admin group

Hello,

How do I add a user to the SharePoint admin group in SharePoint online? Is it via the AD group in Azure AD or via SharePoint online?

thanks,

Hi @SherazadAhmed-3939 ,

You can assign a user to a SharePoint admin role in 2 different ways:

  • You can go to the user's details and Manage roles to assign a role to the user.

  • Or you can go to Roles and select the role, and then add multiple users to it.

For details, you can take a reference to below articles.
Assign admin roles
About the SharePoint admin role in Microsoft 365

If you mean that you want to add a user to a SharePoint Online site admin, please refer to this artice: Add or remove site admins in the new SharePoint admin center.
