Create team from group

Important

APIs under the /beta version in Microsoft Graph are subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported.

Create a new team from a group.

In order to create a team, the group must have a least one owner.

If the group was created less than 15 minutes ago, it's possible for the Create team call to fail with a 404 error code due to replication delays. The recommended pattern is to retry the Create team call three times, with a 10 second delay between calls.

Permissions

One of the following permissions is required to call this API. To learn more, including how to choose permissions, see Permissions.

Permission type Permissions (from least to most privileged)
Delegated (work or school account) Group.ReadWrite.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application Group.ReadWrite.All

Note: This API supports admin permissions. Global admins and Microsoft Teams service admins can access groups that they are not a member of.
