When I try to access https:// -site- /_layouts/15/AppRegNew.aspx, I get an error telling me that I don't have access to this site.

I work on Sharepoint 2013 and I found that this method works only for Sharepoint Online.

Do you know what can I use to replace it? I need to register an app for an external application

Note: I don't have Azure, and I can't have it.

  • What permissions do you have on your SharePoint 2013 site? Jul 11, 2019 at 7:43
  • I have admin permission on my Sharepoint, full control I guess

  • Please check and confirm...Are you site collection administrator? Check permissions from Site settings-->Site permissions-->Check Permissions. Jul 11, 2019 at 8:03
  • I checked and I have full control

This works for both SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2013/2016 on-premises:

https:// -site- /_layouts/15/AppRegNew.aspx

In order to access this page you must be Site Collection Administrator. Only Full Control access will not work for this.

Check if you are Site Collection Administrator or not from Site settings--> Site permissions--> Site Collection Administrators.


Granting access using SharePoint App-Only.

  • Hi Ganesh, is it possible to do it on Sharepoint Foundation or is it only for Sharepoint Server/Online ?

    Thanks Ganesh for your post, it saved my life. I wasn't aware that we had to be Site Collection Administrators to access this page, even if the site owner granted us full control...

I think you might be using wrong path. Below will take you to root site collection.

https:// -site- /_layouts/15/AppRegNew.aspx

Can you try to access(if not already doing)


If you are site collection administrator of site collection you should be able to access.
