Create “Nested” Groups with Azure AD Dynamic Groups (preview)

This feature will help you better manage group memberships by allowing you to build dynamic Azure AD Security Groups and Microsoft 365 groups based on other groups. For example, you can now create Dynamic-Group-A with members of Group-X and Group-Y.

The groups that define the membership of the dynamic group can be any group type represented in Azure Active Directory, such as user or device security groups, Microsoft 365 groups, and groups synced from on-premises. Unlike existing nested security groups today, memberOf dynamic groups return a flat list of members, so they can be used for licensing assignment and application assignment.

Microsoft 365 admin center: Reports in the Admin Center – API available to manage user, group, and site names

Microsoft is releasing an API that helps Global Administrators change how user, group, and site names are displayed in the Microsoft 365 admin center based on their organization’s privacy practices without having to manually change the setting in Org Settings -> Reports. User, group and site names are concealed by default. When this setting is changed, administrative roles and the report reader role will be able to see identifiable user level information. Global reader and Usage Summary Reports Reader roles will not have access to identifiable user information, regardless of the setting chosen. Showing identifiable user information is a logged event in the Microsoft 365 Compliance Center Audit log.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93313
