Add-AzureADGroupMember not working

Occasional Contributor

Hi there,


I am trying to add a user to Azure AD Security Group. I see the Object ID and Reference ID are correct but still i am getting error. Can anyone please assist.


echo "Adding License ..."
Install-Module AzureAd
Import-Module AzureAd
$RefObj = (Get-AzureADGroup -SearchString 'Office365_EnableMail').ObjectID
$UserObj = (Get-AzureADUser -ObjectID $email).ObjectID
Add-AzureADGroupMember -RefObjectId $RefObj -ObjectId $UserObj



My Output:

PS C:\Windows\system32> $RefObj


PS C:\Windows\system32> $UserObj


PS C:\Windows\system32> Add-AzureADGroupMember -RefObjectId $RefObj -ObjectId $UserObj
Add-AzureADGroupMember : Error occurred while executing AddGroupMember

It's the other way around mate, -ObjectId should be the group one.
