Thanks for the feedback! Now that we’ve enabled Group Expiry and Expiry Autorenewal, we are evaluating the work required to implement an exclusion list. Please keep the feedback and votes coming. Thanks!

This is REALLY needed. When 'ManagedGroupTypes' is set to 'All' there is no way to exclude certain groups. We could set this to 'Selected' but then we have to add all self-serve groups to this list. Since users can self-serve them from various services like SharePoint, Teams, Planner and so on, it is hard if not impossible to implement it.
Just like how naming convention can be overridden by global admins and few other people, it would be great if overriding expiration/life cycle policy is extended to groups created by those people as well.
Even better if while ManagedGroupTypes is All, we can exclude any given group at any point of time from expiration policy. Thank you.Rama supported this idea ·
