I have a several distribution/security groups in our on-premise AD that have been in use for years. We recently implemented a BI tool and have several automated emails being sent throughout the day to these groups. We are getting a lot of bounce backs for users that no longer have mail boxes or have been terminated. My first thought is to create new dynamic groups and change the mail-to addresses in the BI tool. The thought was to make a rule that if the user is enabled and is a member of GroupX, then it would be added as a member of this new dynamic group (GroupY). We would then send the reports to send to GroupB@domain.com and it would always be up to date with our AD changes leaving GroupA intact.

 

What I'm unable to find is the option to add members to a group based on another group membership. I took a Teams administration class about a month ago and I brought this topic up for another issue and the instructor said I would be able to do exactly what I'm wanting to do now, just never had a use for it over the last few weeks.

 

Is this possible, and if so, how can I accomplish it?

There's no support for nested groups for either dynamic membership rules or directly adding a group.
