In O365-Admin Center I can create security groups, that are available in the cloud (I am not talking about O365 groups)
Its possible to define a list of owners and members.
If I put a user as the owner, that is not allowed to enter the Admin-center, how can those users change the group memberships (ie add other people to the group).
We are managing different apps through security groups and we as IT do not want to give permissions to those apps. So we would like to enable some normal users to do so.
We also want to enable some managers to edit site collection wide permissions - and this cannot be done with O365 groups or SharePoint groups.
How is this possible?

@Dean Grosshope all is well your way. Which way is best if you want a SG member to be able to add other members. If I make the user an owner, then they can add other owners. Even if just for that one SG but still would like to configure the simplest way to allow a SG member to add other member but not other owners. Thanks!

@Dean Gross what do I look for in myapps.microsoft.com to edit a security group if I am the owner? Do I search for the group name?

@Andrew_H205 I found my way to this thread when I had the same question.
Since it was never answered, from within My Apps, you can hit a drop drown next to "My Apps" in the top left and select "My Groups"
From there it's pretty straight forward to find the groups you (as a user) are an owner to then make additions and removals.
There might be a more direct way to reach this page but this is good enough.
And as others have mentioned maybe making a mail enabled or M365 group for the same purpose as the security group might be a better experience for the end user (Owner) as they don't have to leave outlook.

Excellent thank you!
I completely missed that option until I read your post.
You can also just navigate to https://myaccount.microsoft.com/groups
instead of going to the apps page and then navigating to the Groups page.

Thank you @Dean Gross, the Myapps route works very well, except I need the functionality for mail-enabled security groups, and that does not work ! They show up as groups without an owner (even though I and another person are owners), and are generally not possible to change. They are listed as "Exchange managed" or similar ("Exchange-hanterad" in Swedish).
Any other solution for mail-enabled security groups?
