    Office 365 Dir Sync Groups

    Hi,

    I am looking at Syncing groups from AD to Office 365. This is so we can set permissions in Sharepoint Online. Looking in the admin area i can only see distribution groups for Exchange. Is it possible to sync them for Sharepoint Online please?

    Thanks

    In AD set the groups with the following settings:
    Group name
    Description(If required)
    E-mail
    Group Scope:Globe
    Group Type:Security

    This will make them as both distribution and security groups.

    Do you have to give it an email address? If thought it doesn't need one?

    Thanks

    You only need to provide the e-mail address if you want to use it as a distribution group.
