Azure Active Directory groups

Azure Active Directory recognizes several group types into which you can organize users and groups to regulate access to resources or email distribution, for example.

Azure Active Directory groups are loaded into One Identity Manager by synchronization. You can edit individual main data of the group and you can create new security groups in One Identity Manager. However, you cannot create more group types in One Identity Manager.

To add users to groups, you assign the groups directly to users. This can be assignments of groups to departments, cost centers, locations, business roles, or the IT Shop.

NOTE: Assignments to Azure Active Directory groups that are synchronized with the local Active Directory are not allowed in One Identity Manager. These groups cannot be requested through the web portal. You can only manage these groups in your locally. For more information, see the Azure Active Directory documentation from Microsoft.

The group types supported in One Identity Manager are listed below.
