Unable to create DL

Yanez, Alex 21 Reputation points

I'm getting this:

'<Domain>/User Accounts/Distribution Groups/User Created Groups/EA Data Science' isn't within your current write scopes. Can't perform save operation.

is this a permissions issue?

    Hi @Yanez, Alex

    According to the error message, it seems like a permission issue.
    It indicates the current account don't have permission to create DLs in this OU.

    Have you limited the write scope when assigning permission to this account?
    For example, you run this cmdlet New-ManagementRoleAssignment with the parameter RecipientOrganizationalUnitScope to limit the OU:

    New-ManagementRoleAssignment -Role "Distribution Groups" -user "<current account>" -RecipientOrganizationalUnitScope contoso.com/Engineering/Users
