Add security groups to Office 365 groups
I need a way of making security groups part of an Office 365 group. I want to be able to add users to a security group and then they are automatically a member of a Office 365 group.
Dynamic group membership only appears to work for user attribute values and not their group membership.
Hi, As announced at Ignite Sep 2020, we will be making this functionality available as an open source tool by the end of the year. It can be used to pull in 1 or more security groups (nested or not) to drive the membership of a M365 Group. The membership will be pulled in as a flat list and kept in sync with the security group membership. However, if you have a pressing need for it before then, please reach out to GMMSupport@service.microsoft.com for a download of the tool. There is no support provided for the tool from Microsoft, other than answering any question around how we use it here. Link to the tool demo at Ignite: Making IT more efficient with improvements to Microsoft 365 Groups – https://aka.ms/Admin1011
Our team is very much looking forward to this feature!
It would be really great if you got around to this :)
If this would include a method to add owners as a group also, that would be the cherry on top.
Are we there yet?
We urgently need this :-)

ETA on this?
Great to hear! Where does this sit on the Roadmap? Any expected release date? Looking forward to updates.
Please Confirm? Really need this for a Teams Rollout.

Could I confirm that the Ignite announcement means that dynamic security groups created in AD and synced to 365 could be used to drive Office365 Group membership? This would be a very much needed feature. Any update on timescales?

We would really appreciate this functionality as we start to move some of our workload to the cloud services in O365 while maintaining on-premises Active Directory. Hard to believe this doesn't already exist!
Mike Donnellan commented
We need this functionality immediately to support our Power BI rollout. Any updates on progress? Thanks!
Alex Janes commented
Glad to see this is planned. Is there any time frame for when this will be ready?
Could we get some Updates please? What is the expected Release Date?
Please update when you can, thx.
Any news on this update?
Husain Merchant commented
Highly appreciate, if there is any update for the ask.
Obviously this is needed. If you announced this at Ignite, where is it on the schedule for rollout? If I have missed reading a bulletin from O365, I apologize.
Yes we definitely need this as soon as possible

DO you couldn't be more wrong. I work for Microsoft as a consultant and are at customers every day. Believe me when I say I know the need for this in the enterprise. It's close to impossible to administer the platform without.
