The user configuring ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint is not a term store admin for the organization's Microsoft SharePoint site.
To successfully configure and deploy ArcGIS Maps for SharePoint, a user must be assigned a term store admin role for the Microsoft SharePoint site. To assign this role, follow the steps listed below.
Note: The following steps can only be performed by the organization's Microsoft 365 global admin, or a Microsoft SharePoint admin. For more information on these roles, refer to Microsoft: About the SharePoint admin role in Microsoft 365 .
