Hello,

I would like to change the way I assign E3 licenses from individual to a group. This way I will be abale to control the apps that is assign.

 

So I created a security group in my Azure active directory group and assign an E3 licenses. I than select the apps that I would like to make available. Now that my group is create, what will be the correct course of action? Remove all the licenses I have assign individually to all my users and then add all those user in this new security group?

 

I am concerned about what might happen when I remove the license, especially for the Office license record on their desktop

 

Your help will be very appreciate

I tested your ask on my tenant the user did not loose any access.
