HTTP request

GET /groups/{id}/memberOf

Optional query parameters

This method supports the OData query parameters to help customize the response, including $search, $count, and $filter. OData cast is also enabled, for example, you can cast to get just the groups the group is a member of. You can use $search on the displayName property. When items are added or updated for this resource, they are specially indexed for use with the $count and $search query parameters. There can be a slight delay between when an item is added or updated and when it is available in the index.

Request headers
