We have introduced a new Azure Active Directory (AAD) built-in role called "Global Reader." Global Reader is the read-only counterpart to Global admin. Users in this role can read settings and administrative information across Microsoft 365 services, but cannot take management actions. When the Global Reader role initially launched, it did not support the SharePoint admin center. And now, a "Global Reader" will see 'SharePoint' listed in left pane under Admin Centers in the Microsoft 365 admin center. Users who are assigned this role will have read-only access to all info and settings in the new SharePoint admin center. Note: This feature is related to the global admin role introduced in Message Center post: MC191391 (September 2019); roadmap ID: 55096.
