Fixed – Exception calling “CreateSPNavigationNode” with “4” argument(s): Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)) in SharePoint 2013


Got this error while running a PowerShell script that creates Navigation in the portal.

Adding the logged in user as to Site Collection Administrator group fixed the issue.
