Hello,

I see that person/group field is only accepting email enabled object - is there any way to add "Azure AD Security Group" ( Not Email enabled ) into SharePoint list column person/group field?

Thanks,

    I tested with a simple Azure AD Security Group and SharePoint Online is accepting the group like any other group.

    Hi anonymous userD-1603,

    As AnupamShri said, Azure AD Security group without email can be retrieved by SharePoint person/group field.

    Please check whether the person or group column has restricted Choose from option:

    We could also create a new person/group column then add the Azure AD security group, compare the result and post it back.
