Hi all,

I have several questions regarding mail-enabled security groups.

1.) can I use local AD groups & cloud-only groups for granting access
to SPO or I have to use cloud-only?
2.) are there any reasons not to use local sec groups?

Are local sec groups, not mail-enabled & can or can't you use them as DL's?
3.) if I buy EMS E3 licenses, could I do "dynamic-attribute based sec
group assignment? Would that only work for Azure cloud-only, or could it work
local sec groups synced to azure?

 

Kind regards,

You should be able to use synced ones just fine, but only mail-enabled ones. Dynamic membership is only for cloud-created ones.
