We are migrating all our organization data in Office 365 and sharepoint sites. We plan to use AD groups synchronized with Azure AD. With AD, sometimes we get some issues when a user is member of too much groups (more 100). Is there the same limitation on Azure AD ?

How many groups  max can a user be member of on Azure AD ?

Thank for your answers.

  • A maximum of 10 users can be owners of a single group.
  • Any number of objects can be members of a single group in Azure Active Directory.
  • The number of members in a group you can synchronize from your on-premises Active Directory to Azure Active Directory is limited to 15K members, using Azure Active Directory Directory Synchronization (DirSync).
  • The number of members in a group you can synchronize from your on-premises Active Directory to Azure Active Directory using Azure AD Connect is limited to 50K members.
