SharePoint Online can’t access the Content Type Hub

A while ago I wrote a blog about finding the Content Type Hub in SharePoint Online. This site collection should be accessible for all Office 365 Global Administrators. Today I actually encountered an issue where I couldn’t access the Content Type Hub while I had the Global Administrator permissions.

Thanks to the great support of Microsoft we found a workaround to provide access:

Just replace tenantname with your tenant name (DUH ;)) and you are able to assign yourself as site collection administrator to the Content Type Hub.

    Thanks for that – now have access to the site!
    Only one problem remaining – the Content Type Gallery throws “An unexpected error has occurred. Please try again later.” and trying to create a Content Type results in the never-ending spinning circle. Seems like I need to hit it with a bigger hammer :-/
