I'm new with SPO365, but from what I read, to deploy and test apps I need a developer site (site collection), but I don't have access to create it, neither access to Central Admin.

Does my developer user needs to be a Farm Admin?

What if SP Administrator creates that site and just add my user to its site collection administrator group, Does this would work?

  • you want for SPO or on prem sharepoint?

ON SPO, Tenant Administrator can create a developer site collection from Office 365 admin center if you have Plan E1 or E3.

You need the Site collection admin rights on developer site collection.

  • From what I read on this link: office.microsoft.com/en-001/… The SharePoint Online Admin would be the same as the Tenant Administrator that you mention? with that role should be enough right? Thanks in advance
