    I was able to get the issue resolved by following what @Vaibhav Chaudhari suggested. That is under Synapse Studio > Access Control, I had to explicitly add Synapse Administrator privilege for my AD account's object id as well as the object id of service principal which was used by Terraform to spin up this infrastructure. When I was creating Synapse Workspace through Powershell or Azure Portal I did not had this problem. The problem was only coming when using Terraform to create azure synapse workspace. Using Terraform somehow was missing to provide Synapse Administrator role in Access Control to my account.

    @Vaibhav Chaudhari was anything further discovered around this issue? I have same issue.

    • guest user in tenancy
    • owner of subscription
    • created synapse analytics workspace
    • get a 403 when try to add another user as admin.
