Your tenant administrator has to approve this app – recently I was working with the SharePoint modernization scanner tool, where one of the authentication methods was “Azure ACS App Only”. I am very hands-on to generate the client id and client secret because previously many times I did that, so with confidence, I started generating the client ID and client secret ID, unfortunately, ended up with the error “Your tenant administrator has to approve this app”, so, in this troubleshooting, I will share how to fix this issue.
I went to the “https://globalsharepoint2020.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx” page to generate the client ID, and was successfully able to generate the below client id and client secret:
The app identifier has been successfully created.
SharePoint Scanner Tool
Then I went to the https://globalsharepoint2020.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appinv.aspx page to register the app permission XML, there I stuck up, once I entered the below permission XML:
<AppPermissionRequests AllowAppOnlyPolicy="true"> <AppPermissionRequest Scope="http://sharepoint/content/tenant" Right="FullControl" /> </AppPermissionRequests>
After adding the above app permission XML, click on the “Create” button.
We will get the below error message:
Do you trust SharePoint Scanner Tool?
Your tenant administrator has to approve this app.
Let it have full control of all site collections.
Let it share its permissions with other users.
Let it access basic information about the users of this site.
Note – here “Trust it” button is disabled.
