We have 1500 entries for users in AD on-premise which were synced to Office 365. 800 of those are employees and the rest are service accounts, or vendors which do not need access to Sharepoint cloud. We created a security group SharePoint 365 Access, and Lync 365 Access in AD on-premises. We want to add Department OUs to those groups so that certain departments get SharePoint/Lync, just Sharepoint, just Lync, etc. When I try to highlight anyone in the Security Groups link on the Admin page it will not select them and then will not allow me to add a license. Is there a way to add Licenses based off Security Groups, and when new employees are added via the Department OU.
Thanks for the feedback.
Hi Chris Bigg,
Currently, we cannot assign licenses based on Security Groups. A workaround for this issue is creating different views according to the departments information. I have provided the detailed steps as below:
1. Log in Office 365, click Admin.
2. Click Users on the left side, click All users behind View:. Click New View.
3. In the New View window, type in a name such as Sales Department, in the Department box, type in a department name. Click Save.
For more information about user view, you can refer to the article: http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/office365-enterprises/ff637583.aspx.
Is there any update about this issue? Do you need any further assistance on this issue?
Yes, thank you for the help.
