using AD group as members of a sharepoint online team site

Brass Contributor

it doesn't seem like this should be that hard. I feel like I'm missing something really simple.

I create a new team site, no Microsoft team associated with. I'm trying to add a AD group that is a security group synced from onprem. But it doesn't show up as an option to add either to the 0365 group that gets created for a team site, or through advanced permissions within site settings.

Any help would be appreciated.

O365 Groups do not yet support nesting with other group types, so your options are to either use dynamic membership, or "sync" the AD group membership by using a tool such as the GMM:
Thats makes things more difficult. I haven't used dynamic groups yet, for user objects is it just Azure Ad attributes you can create the dynamic groups from?
Thanks the post makes it look like memberof is a property that can be used, but its not in the syntax builder.
