Error when create Portfolio (for Admin role): "Not authorized to create Object"

Hello Experts,

we are facing the following error: in a new PPM system, just recently configured for Porfolio Management, when trying to create the first Portfolio (Portfolio and Project Administration -> Portfolio -> Create), the following message appears (see atachment)

"Not authorized to create objects;'Create' or 'Admin' needed on parent"

The user has Admin Role and authorizations (SAP_XRPM_ADMINISTRATOR, SAP_BPR_PPM, etc.), Portfolio types have been configured properly, and there is no "parent" as mentioned in the error message since Portfolio is the root level

I can imagine there may be some setting missing, or maybe there is any SAP note regarding the issue, but until now my search has been no productive. 

Have any of you faced the same issue before? any clue or guidance on a solution for this?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Roberto,

    it is worth to have a look the SU53 (authority trace) in the backend, if anything suspicious.

    KInd regards,
