Using AD Groups in CDS

Hello,

 

I am trying to have an option where I can assign Tasks to Groups of people rather than just one user. I want these groups to be the groups within my Azure AD.

 

Part 1 of my question: Is it possible have automation so when new groups are creating in Azure, they are also created in CDS?

 

Part 2: Is it possible once these are created, that I can send an email to all of the users within the team?

 

Thanks

Re: Using AD Groups in CDS

Hi @sammybridge ,

 

Quick answer to both your questions is yes 🙂

 

  1. See Microsoft documentation on how to configure CDS teams sync/managed through Azure AD groups: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform/admin/manage-teams#about-group-teams
    Another Microsoft article about this: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/dynamics365/it/2019/05/01/using-azure-active-directory-groups-to-ma...
  2. If the group has an email associated to it and is email enabled, then yes. You can have a Power Automate flow that triggers and sends the email.

Hope this helps!
