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,
