O365 Add-In(App) Error: “Sorry, only tenant administrators can add or give access to this app.”

On the web there are many answers to this problem mine was simply related to the permission requests in the APP and the user account privileges in O365.

In my case I accidentally requested permission on tenant level while I needed only Site Collection level permission for my app. This lead to situations where my app was visible to be added by someone whom can manage apps in a site BUT did not have permissions to approve permission requests at Tenant level.

So lesson learned: Check your app and user permissions/privileges.
