We want to add users in bulk in Azure Active directory, but we want disable setting to send notification to users at time of bulk add and also avoid approval process by AD group owner. Because if users are more than it is very difficult to approve each user access request for group Owner.

Please suggest.

    Hi @sushma Kumari , thanks for the question. Please let me know if the following steps work for you:

    To disable the notification setting, you can use the Azure AD PowerShell module. Here are the steps:

    1. Open PowerShell as an administrator.
    2. Install the Azure AD PowerShell module by running the following command: Install-Module AzureAD.
    3. Connect to your Azure AD tenant by running the following command: Connect-AzureAD.
    4. Run the following command to disable the notification setting: Set-AzureADDirectorySetting -Id <ID> -Values @{NotificationsEnabled=$false}.

    To bulk add users you can follow this document. By doing this you shouldn't need to worry about the approval process.

    Please let me know if you have any questions and I can help you further.
