Azure Access Groups descriptions

Lem Hatcher 1 Reputation point

We are creating an Access Review for over 150+ groups for managers and group owners to approve or deny. There could be a case that new managers/owners over more than one group might not know the description of the group that we are asking for the decision of the users to have access to. If we have each description filled in at the Active Directory level, will the description show automatically when I create the access review in bulk for the managers/Owners?

Or do we have to break up the access group individually and manually add a description of each group?

    Hi @Lem Hatcher , thanks for the question. Going off of this document you can add a description to each Access Review. That description would apply to the access review. If you wanted multiple descriptions you would have to split the Access Review up or rely on descriptions from the groups themselves. Please let me know if I misunderstood your question or if you have any and I can help you further.

    If this answer helped you please mark it as "Verified" so other users can reference it.

    Thank you,
