We'd like to use Scoped directory search in Teams and all the documentation seems to suggest that we can't use just Address Book polices to accomplish this. 
 
Some confusion is caused because the documentation states that we'll also need to setup "Information Barriers Policies" to segment the users first.  (which also require A5s)
 
Has anyone used scoped directory search? How did you do it?

When I last played with it, it worked just fine with Address Book Policies. I suppose Microsoft will replace those with Information Barriers at some point, but afaik they still dont support Exchange.

@Vasil Michev   Thank you for the reply.  That's how I've always known them to work.  

 

Microsoft's current documentation states that only information barrier policies are used and seems to suggest that information barrier segments are required.  It's odd.
