Remove a member from Azure AD Group

You can use the Active Roles Management Shell to remove a member from the Azure AD group. To remove a member from an Azure AD group, on the Management Shell interface, run the Remove-QADGroupMember cmdlet.

For more information on removing a member from an Azure AD group using the Management Shell interface, see the Active Roles Management Shell Help.

Managing Office 365 Groups

Active Roles supports CRUD (create, read, update and delete) operations for Office 365 (O365) groups and also lets you specify owners and add/remove members to or from existing O365 groups in your organization.

O365 groups facilitate teamwork within an organization by providing the same set of permissions to (guest) users, allowing you to provide access efficiently to various shared resources (such as a common Microsoft Outlook inbox and calendar, a shared OneNote notebook, or other Microsoft 365 resources). For more information on O365 groups, see Overview of Microsoft 365 Groups for administrators in the Microsoft 365 documentation.

You can administer O365 groups either via the Active Roles Web Interface or through the Active Roles Management Shell.

Configuring O365 Groups with the Web Interface

You can use the Active Roles Web Interface to:

  • Create, view, modify or delete O365 groups in your organization.

  • Assign or remove owners and members to or from existing O365 groups.

  • View the change history of existing O365 groups.

NOTE: You cannot use the Active Roles Web Interface to synchronize existing O365 groups. To synchronize O365 groups, configure an O365 synchronization schedule task with the Active Roles Console (also known as the MMC Interface). For more information, see Scheduling an O365 group synchronization task.

Creating an O365 Group with the Web Interface

You can use the Active Roles Web Interface to create and enable new Office 365 (O365) groups.

For more information on O365 groups, see Overview of Microsoft 365 Groups for administrators in the Microsoft 365 documentation.

To create a new O365 group

  1. Navigate to Directory Management > Tree > Azure > <azure-tenant-name> > Office 365 Groups.

    The list of existing O365 groups in the selected Azure tenant appears.

    NOTE: When opening the list of Office 365 Groups the first time, Active Roles checks and fetches all existing O365 groups that may exist in the Azure cloud. This action is performed automatically and may take a few minutes to complete.

  2. In the right-side pane, click New Group.

    The New Group in Office 365 Groups window appears.

  3. Specify the Group Azure Display Name of the configured group.

    TIP: You can configure multiple groups with the same Group Azure Display Name in the same Azure tenant.

  4. Specify the Exchange Online Alias of the O365 group. This value is used for naming the SharePoint site URL of the O365 group, and will also name the primary email address of the shared mailbox associated with the O365 group.

    TIP: The Alias of the O365 group must be unique within the Azure tenant.

  5. Provide a short Description for the group.

  6. Configure the Membership type of the group:

    • Assigned: When selected, you can add or remove members to or from the group manually later. For more information, see Adding or removing members from an O365 Group with the Web Interface.

    • Dynamic Members: When selected, Active Roles sets up the group as a dynamic membership group, and will automatically update group membership based on the configured Dynamic membership rule syntax.

    TIP: Consider the following when configuring the Membership type:

    • Select Dynamic Members to quickly configure a group based on a certain membership logic. For example, if you need to set up a group for employees from the same geographical location, business unit, or functional area, One Identity recommends configuring the group with Dynamic Members.

    • If you select Dynamic Members, you will not be able to manually add or remove members to or from the O365 group, unless you change its Membership type to Assigned later. However, you can still manually configure the owner(s) for a dynamic O365 group, as described in Adding or removing owners from an O365 Group with the Web Interface.

    • You can always change the Membership type later by navigating to the following option of the Active Roles Web Interface:

      Directory Management > Tree > Azure > <azure-tenant-name> > Office 365 Groups > <o365-group-name> > Azure Properties > General.

    • Changing the Membership type from Dynamic Members to Assigned later will keep the last set of members that were dynamically assigned to the group.

  7. If you set the Membership type to Dynamic Members, specify the Dynamic membership rule syntax. Active Roles will send the logic configured in this field to Azure to automatically assign or remove members to or from the group later.

    NOTE: Consider the following when using the Dynamic membership rule syntax setting:

    • This setting is enabled only if Membership type is set to Dynamic Members. However, in that case, it is mandatory and cannot be empty.

    • The specified dynamic membership rule must meet all rule syntax requirements, otherwise the window will return an error. For more information on the available membership rule properties, operators and values, see Dynamic membership rules for groups in Azure Active Directory in the Microsoft 365 documentation.

    • Whenever you modify the dynamic membership rule of a dynamic O365 group, it can take several minutes for Azure to update the list of group members in the Directory Management > Tree > Azure > <azure-tenant-name> > Office 365 Groups > <o365-group-name> > Dynamic Members window.

  8. To complete the configuration of the new O365 group, click Finish.

    The new O365 group will appear under the Directory Management > Tree > Azure > <azure-tenant-name> > Office 365 Groups node.
