Microsoft 365 admin center list all groups with members and owners



Is it possible, with Power Automate, to make list of all defined groups (Distribution list) in Microsoft 365 admin center?

Also I need all members of the groups with owners of that groups.

Hi @DejanLazarevic 


Basically the direct actions, do not provide the data from all groups. It is only O365 groups using the O365 connector and the Security groups using the Azure AD connector. But, you can use the Graph API to get all the groups and their members and the owners and this includes distribution lists as well. You can check out this post here where I Have shown a way to do this by creating a custom connector from Graph API:


Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255 ,

thanks for answer and useful link.


Finally I got list of all groups with Graph API and your solution with Custom Connector in Power Automate.

Now I have only one issue.

How to get Owner of Distribution list?


I regularly entered Distribution list's owner in Microsoft 365 admin center which is also visible from Exchange admin center but not from Azure Active Directory. 

I tried to call this API:{id}/owners$expand=owners

but both of them return empty object for Distribution list's owner.


I can't add Distribution list owner in Azure Active Directory because this functionality is disabled.

If you have any suggestion or recommendation I would be grateful.
