Hi,

Is there official documentation stating that groups in AAD are case insensitive? (I suppose they are case-aware, but not case-sensitive).
Something stating whether I can create "group-a" and "GROUP-A" or not.

    Hi @Giorgio , thanks for the question. The best document to reference is this one. The relevant quote:

    "Resource names are case-insensitive unless noted in the valid characters column."

    And looking at AAD Security Groups they are case-insensitive. I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions.

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

    Thank you,
    James
