During deployment of your SharePoint 2010 feature you might get the following error:
Error occurred in deployment step ‘Activate Features’: The current user has insufficient permissions to perform this operation
During the activation of the feature the current user seems to have insufficient permissions to perform the operatio. I encountered this problem while deploying a solution from Visual Studio 2010 on my development machine.
The error is caused by an incorrect “TermsStore administrator account”.
- Go the Central Administration
- Go to : “Manage service applications” ( _admin/serviceapplications.aspx).
- Select “Managed Metadata Service” to get the Terms Store admin interface.
- In the section : “Term Store Administrators”. Add the user that you use to run Visual Studio.
- Save the changes.
Hope it helps
