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 we announced during Ignite this year, we are releasing an open source tool by the end of the year that can be used to pull in one or more security groups (nested or not) into the membership of large Microsoft 365 Groups. The membership will be pulled in as a flat list and kept in sync with the security group membership. Having Azure subscriptions is a pre-requisite to using this tool. The successful deployment would require support from personnel that have experience in building, deploying and managing Azure services, so you can get through the installation smoothly. If you have an urgent and immediate need for the tool, please reach out to GMMSupport@service.microsoft.com for a download link. Microsoft is releasing the tool without support, other than answering questions about how we use it internally.
This is a nightmare. We only have 80 users, but I am ONE person over 3 locations and many groups with some turnover in the lower levels. The cost of AAD Premium is freaking outrageous for my company. Only have the users have O365 Prem because of cost.

How does this get escalated to the top of the backlog? This is basic functionality that should be a requirement for the product to be considered viable. Group nesting should work by default even for synchroniced groups from on premise or Azure AD groups.
We have multiple teams and spend time adding users manually one by one.
For example : a team to discuss a product launch involving marketing dpt and r&d dpt... we need to add 500 users one by one when there are AD Security Groups in AD

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.
