Is it possible to create an azure group and place a limit on the number of member .

Hello ,

I have a interesting issue

I wish to limit the number of member of azure 0365 group . As this group will provide service for a set number of user. I Wish group owner to manage group . Thus manage the service that can not exceed x mount of user. I also feel this would increases user management. As user of service could be temporarily in nature .

I could write a ps script that run on schedule that manages this or possibly a power platform solution .

Any thought on these approaches and possibly reading would be appreciated.

Are there any other solution to achieve this with azure ?

    Hi, Dean

    I am not sure about the limit of the groups; you could potentially run some automation (Azure Automation Runbook) to remove a user if the group goes over an x limit.

    But I would take a look at: Access reviews.

    "Access reviews in Microsoft Entra ID, part of Microsoft Entra, enable organizations to efficiently manage group memberships, access to enterprise applications, and role assignments. User's access can be reviewed regularly to make sure only the right people have continued access."

    Refer: Microsoft Entra service limits and restrictions
