One of my user admin is trying to upload the profile photo of another non admin user and he is getting the error mentioned below.

Set-MgUserPhotoContent -UserId

Set-MgUserPhotoContent : invalid_role

Status: 403 (Forbidden)

ErrorCode: ForbiddenByPolicy

Date: 2023-11-13T08:49:50

As per the user does have user admin role and necessary delegated permissions.

Does it not work with user admin role?

    Based on the error you’ve encountered, it appears that the upload of your profile picture is being blocked by a policy defined in the Security section of the Azure portal. Please check if there is an active policy that restricts the upload of profile images.
