Manage to which groups a group belongs in your Azure Active Directory tenant

Groups can contain other groups in Azure Active Directory. Here's how to manage those memberships.

How do I find the groups of which my group is a member?

  1. Sign in to the Azure AD admin center with an account that's a global admin for the directory.
  2. Select Users and groups.

  6. To add your group as a member of another group, on the Group - Group memberships blade, select the Add command.
  7. Select a group from the Select Group blade, and then select the Select button at the bottom of the blade. You can add your group to only one group at a time. The User box filters the display based on matching your entry to any part of a user or device name. No wildcard characters are accepted in that box.
