In our SharePoint online we have default contact list. In this list can we Sync the data from Office 365 Global Address book?

 

Our Target is we have maintain the customer list in our office 365 Exchange Admin center contact, all of these customer list Sync to our SharePoint address book.

 

If we Sync the global contacts to our SharePoint they can also access the SharePoint site?

No. Adding contacts to a contact list will not grant access to the contacts.
There is no synchronization between the global address list in EXO and a contact list in SPO...if you need that, you will need to build it by using any of the development options you have in Office 365

@Juan Carlos González Martín 

 

Is there any possibility to do this using Microsoft Flow?

Yes, Flow could be definitively an option here....a Flow can be run on a schedule and you could get the Contacts using Graph API and store them in a list

@Juan Carlos González Martín 

 

Can you please explain briefly, we created the Graph API.

How to create flow and to connect SharePoint?

This absolutely can be done. This is the command that syncs GAL to People Picker 

Set-SPOTenant -UseFindPeopleInPeoplePicker $true

@Jeyganesh 

I have SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and no on-prem of either, the command is accepted instantly but no action occurs after, in PowerShell I have all modules installed and signed into them and have many users set to be hidden but after over a week of running that more than once, no change has occurred.
