    Hi @Kumkuse ,

    You say, "I have assigned the user to that custom role where when he opens his azure portal he is able to view the provisioning logs, but when I tried testing it is showing below error." To clarify, do you mean that you are logging in with an account with the same permissions and receiving that error, or with different permissions than the ones you described? Are you accessing with both a global admin role and a custom role or just one or the other?

    I am not sure which permissions you have applied in your custom role, but if you only have "" applied, the issue might be that there is more data showing in the portal provisioning logs and you need to apply additional permissions as documented here and here.

    The documentation details that these are the roles that provide access to the provisioning logs:

    • Application owners (logs for their own applications)
    • Users in the Security Administrator, Security Reader, Report Reader, Security Operator, Application Administrator, and Cloud Application Administrator roles
    • Users in a custom role with the provisioningLogs permission
    • Global administrators

    Please also confirm whether you are using a Guest or Member account to access this page, and whether you are accessing or If possible, you can create cloud-only account and add the permissions to that account to see if you get different results.

    I have asked the product team to see if there is anything that could cause that error while you have those correct permissions applied, but let me know if I should supply additional details for them.
