Hi All,

While we create a new Teams from the teams client, no groups gets created under the groups section in outlook. Where as if we create a group from outlook web browser, and after going to SharePoint  and link to a new teams group, the groups comes under the group section of Outlook client.

 

For the first case , if we hide it from the address list the group is showing in the outlook client. But this is not a feasible solution . 

 

Is this a MS bug? Is there a permanent fix for it? Why is this happening?

@VishnuBose this is by design since 2018: Teams should not automatically show up in Outlook. If you want to do this, use a process for automation (e. g. Azure Automation) or some other things to automate your Teams creation process. Some reference: Why Microsoft Teams sometimes can't use a team to schedule meetings - Office 365 for IT Pros (office...

Yes, this is by design.
Automatic provisioning as mentioned is a solution or just create as normal in teams and then run this command from powershell with the exchange module will help you:

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity MyGroup -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled:$False
