prevent members and owners to invite guests



We are starting with teams and have also our AD linked to Azure. A few people have Office 365 but the most people have now free teams for the time being. We let people who are member of a security group in AD make Teams in Microsoft Teams but we would like to prevent that owners can invite guests.


When a owner invite guests they are added to Azure but when a owner removes the guest from a Team the guest stays in Azure. This is for us not duable. However when we prevent people from making Teams that is also not desirable so the question i have is:


Is it possible to prevent owners from inviting guests and let all go thru our ICT department which controles Azure?

There is an option for example in Azure:

members and owners in the role of guestinvitations can...


members can send invitations

The role mentioned is one of the options to govern how Guests can be added to a Team

It's a role in Azure but we do not use roles at the moment. We have admins in Azure and members. Isn't there a setting where we can prevent owners and members of teams to invite guests to teams?


Hi @Surfer10 


Yes you have an option wherein you can disable the Guest Invitation from the Office 365 Admin Portal > Teams Admin Center and Guest Access. This is only possible in case you are using the Paid Version of Microsoft Teams not the Free version of Microsoft Teams

We use the free version for 1 year but i see the option though. It looks like this option is to prevent users from adding geusts to Office 365 groups?
