Eng Hooi Sun 1 Reputation point

I have invited external users as guest and granted them Global Reader role in Azure AD.
However when they aceepted the invitation and redirected them to, it shows empty.
Is's i missed any steps? or how they can login as Global Reader role on my tenant?

    Hi @Eng Hooi Sun

    From a similar topic

    A person raised a ticket with Microsoft and they stated that you should not be able to do this. Other people tested and received the same error your are receiving.

    To the point, you should not be adding people to Global Admin/Global Reader role that are outside your tenant. If you want to grant someone Global Admin/Global Reader you should create an account for them inside your tenant.
