    Hi @Lital Raanan ,

    Only global Administrator or subscription administrator can delete a tenant on azure ( additionaly a Security Administrator cannot grant another user the Global Administrator role in Azure. Only Global Administrators and Privileged Role Administrators ( can delegate administrator roles.

    The option that you have if there is nobody with this priovilede is create a support ticket in help & support
