How to Add a User to a Security Group in Office 365
To add a user to a security group in Office 365, use the Get-MsolGroupMember cmdlet with the
-GroupObjectId parameter. The
-GroupObjectId parameter specifies the unique ID of the group to which we want to add a new member.
-GroupMemberType parameter specifies the member type, in this case, “user“. The
-GroupMemberObjectId parameter specifies the unique ID of the member in the group.
# Get the User $User = Get-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName "[email protected]" # Get the Group object in Office 365 $Group = Get-MsolGroup -ObjectId "008f363f-5b3a-4899-8004-a2d140426802" # Add a new user to the security group Add-MsolGroupMember -GroupObjectId $Group.ObjectId -GroupMemberObjectId $User.ObjectId -GroupMemberType User
This command adds a user to a security group.
