Is it possible to restrict use of an Azure AD group within SharePoint

Terry Hagan 1 Reputation point

We have a number of AAD Security groups that use a membership type of Dynamic User. These groups can be used in SharePoint Online to open access to sites etc.

Is there anyway to restrict access to these groups withing SharePoint Online so that only a specific set of users can use them?

    Hi @Terry Hagan
    In sharepoint, a group is a unit. If you want to grant permission for partial users of the groups, this is not allowed. We could only grant permissions for the whole group, and the users in the group will all be granted the same permission at the same time.
