Support for Azure AD extension attributes as part of a Office 365 groups naming policy.
since all standard attributes supported by AzureAD do fit the desired naming convention (use some Shorter ones - than long Department / Company terms) we want to use shortcuts in the name of the Group. With this we can get into compliance to the existing GAL Naming convention and Users can directly identify groups belonging to their business Unit. Therefore we need to use the Azure AD extension attributes. The attributes are already filled in the onPrem AD, just waiting to get replicated and supported. This will also allow a lot more flexibility in creation of naming policies, fitting the customers need.
Please Vote for it! Thank you.

Without the extension attributes this is not usable for us at Dundee University
Also consider allowing for 3 first letters of attribute already supported, %3[Department] - Similar to he old exchange recipient policies.
