Since User Sync 1.4.1 for Atlassian Data Center and Server, it's possible to select which types of Microsoft Entra ID (formerly Azure AD) groups should be synchronized. This can be changed in the advanced section of your Azure AD connector configuration.


Before enabling additional group type sync, make sure that only authorized users can create such groups in your Microsoft Entra ID Directory. Please understand that we cannot give any configuration recommendations! Please check the Microsoft documentation for further details:

Manage who can create Office 365 Groups

By default, the synchronization of these group types is enabled:

  • Security Groups

  • Office 365 Groups (Security-Enabled)

Additionally, it's possible to synchronize these group types:
