Questions on Azure Active Directory Groups in LMS365

In LMS365 it is possible to use Azure Active Directory Groups. Find the most common situations referring to Azure AD groups in the article. 

Most common situations

If you enroll an AD group in a course, then all users from this AD group will be automatically added to the Learner list.

If you add new users to your AD group, these users will be automatically added to the courses, where this AD group was added.

When you remove users from the AD group, these users will be removed from the courses too.
The course progress of this learner will not be shown. The user will be removed from the Learner list if this user was not be enrolled in other courses.

If you enroll an AD group in the "Manage learners" option - in the "Register attendance" list these users will be displayed individually, and not as a whole group.

To remove the AD group from all systems (to free up the license), navigate to Azure Active Directory admin center> Groups> Delete group. The group will be removed after a little while.

If you remove a user from a Course Catalog that was added as a part of AD group you will see a failure in notifications with detailed description of the reason:

NOTE: All learners that were enrolled via this group will be unenrolled from courses and Training Plans. The Learners that were exclusively enrolled or added via this group will be removed from the Learner list. The Learners that were enrolled or added as individuals or via any other group will not be removed from the Learner List or unenrolled from Courses or Training Plans.

    How long should it take for the course to update after adding someone to an AD group that is enrolled already in a course?

    Synchronization between Azure and LMS365 usually starts in the first 15 minutes of every hour.
