The authenticated user is not authorized to access this resource - Stream/SharePoint/Teams/OneNote

Scenario - You share a Microsoft Stream video (could also be a meeting recording from Microsoft Teams) via direct link, SharePoint, Teams Channel, OneNote, Yammer. But the user receives message "Microsoft Stream - The authenticated user is not authorized to access this resource." even though they can access the SharePoint site or Teams Channel successfully.

Microsoft Stream - authorization error

The error indicates that the user is authenticated but not authorized to access the resource. This means,

The user has a valid Office/Microsoft 365 account and has necessary license to access Microsoft Stream, but does not have required permissions to access the Stream video/channel.

⛏️ How to troubleshoot and fix

The problem is with MS Stream video permissions. The video may be embedded into SharePoint Online page, Teams Channel, Yammer, OneNote. Do not get confused, the problem is with access to the video and not where it is embedded.
  • Verify the user have required MS Stream license.
  • The video may be private, make sure the user is given access. Request the video owner or Admin to help you.
  • If not confidential, make the video open to everyone by checking 'Allow everyone in your company to view this video' from the update video details section.
  • Sometimes the video is part of private channel, grant permissions to the channel itself, or to individual video.
  • Ensure the user is using correct O365 organizational account to access.
Note that Microsoft Stream videos cannot be extended to external users at this point. Microsoft has a plan to add this feature late 2020.

⚡️ Update

You can now use OneDrive for Business and SharePoint for storing meeting recordings. Work with your Microsoft 365 Tenant Admin to configure this. By Q1 2021, all Teams meeting recordings will be stored to SharePoint/OneDrive. This will make it possible to share recordings with external participants.

  • You need a Microsoft Stream license for accessing the recording. Usually that is part of Office 365 plan subscription, but still ask the Tenant Admin to allocate license.
