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.

This is absolutely basic function that is missing. On premises Identity management system controlling AD and then adds security group to O365 group.

Further proof that nobody who works at Microsoft today has any concept of real-world IT...

Yes please, this is a requirement for provisioning new employees and deprovision leaving employee's automatically in a larger organization.
I also agree with the previous two comments

This would allow us to adopt MS Teams mirrored from AD security project based groups which we already create for access to local resources. It just makes sense not to have to keep manually local and O365 groups in sync. Please add this.
even a way to convert Security Groups via the same method as converting Distribution List works for me. I would even accept a PowerShell script to run and convert the existing Security Groups to Unified O365 groups.
