Hi we have an azure automation account and today we got know our Run as account certificate has expired.


we tried to renew self signed certificate by following this link https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/manage-runas-account

But we are getting the below error

An error occurred while renewing the Azure Run As account certificate for Automation account 'android-automation' and Azure Active Directory(AAD) Application ID 'xxxxxxx'.  
Error details:  
{"odata.error":{"code":"Authorization_RequestDenied","message":{"lang":"en","value":"Insufficient privileges to complete the operation."},"requestId":xxxxxxx"}}.  
 Ask your Azure Active Directory Application owner or Azure Active Directory Global Administrator / Company Administrator to renew the Run As account certificate.  

Please help to resolve this issue
