Content Type Hub Syndication with office365 Groups


Hey all,

I'm trying to see if anyone is able to get content type hub syndication working with the new O365 Group sites. I have it working for our normal sites, but none of the custom content types are coming into the group sites. Any ideas on this? 
When I look under 'Content Type Publishing' in the site settings of the group site, I can confirm that it is subscribed, it just doesn't seem to be doing anything. Thanks!

that would be great!

thanks, I've added my 3 votes.

Im just checking this. This would be the first place to look for viable consistency. Im going to try a test publish to CTH and then swing back tot he Office365 groups

Appreciate this is an old thread but I wondered what sort've turn around time you guys see from creating a new group to when content types are actually synched into the group site? Last week I was seeing this occur quite quickly after a site was programmatically created via MSGraph but this week after several hours my site policies in the content type hub still haven't come down. From a bit of reading of unofficial blog posts it seems it may take between 24-48 hours sometimes in the SPO world, is this what others are seeing?


For classic sites its obviously instant (i.e. as soon as a sites created my site policies from CT Hub are visible), I'm just talking about modern sites.

I haven't been using groups, so I'm not sure. I haven't tested it since I posted. Still waiting to hear that it works, lol :D

This is working for me today. Old group sites automatically inherit the CTH CTs, and new group sites eventually get the CTs ( I had to wait sometime, after checking back within an hour the CTH CTs were there)



This is working in modern team sites as deployed in the sp-starter-kit demo it did take a while on my dev tenant.   However, I don't want visit each of my Hub/communication & Modern team sites and manually request a refresh. SO is there any PowerShell commands that will let me do this automatically ?
