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.
We have announced that Group Owners will be able to leverage existing groups to drive membership in Office 365 Groups.

I have several large customers (5000+ users) in need of this feature to deploy Teams in the entire organization. At the moment this is seen as a blocker.
The ETA can be found here on the Roadmap (Q1 2020):
Any more news apart from the above on the already fantastic news that this is now a planned feature?
Dougla Becker commented
Is there any update on when this will be available?

Shows Q1 2020 on roadmap
Need this, when will it be available?
Same ETA question as everyone else, but in regards to GCC. Any chance this will be rolled out to everyone at once?
Any ETA on this?
Same question here! When will this be available?
Hi, any ideas, when this will be available? Especially large companies manage their active directory groups with identity management systems. S othere is really a need to update memberships for e.g. MS TEAMS based on the active directory groups.
Yves Marty commented
Did Microsoft realized that at least big companys have their own group management system and that it is an absolute need to reuse these groups for application management in O365 ? That's the necessary condition for large deployment of O365 solutions. I hope they understood and that this feature is a priority.

Important option, same Q as others, ETA?
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 :-)

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.
Max Goss commented
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?
Christopher Butler commented
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!
