Restoring groups

In Azure AD, there are two types of groups; Security and Microsoft 365. When a Microsoft 365 group is deleted in Azure AD, it is soft deleted. That is, the Microsoft 365 group is moved to the Deleted groups page where it can be restored or permanently deleted. When a Security group is deleted in Azure AD, it is hard deleted. That is, the security group is permanently deleted and not moved to the Deleted groups page. The Differences report in On Demand Recovery identifies groups as being either hard deleted or soft deleted in Azure AD. Both types of groups can be restored from the Differences report.

Supported scenarios

The following scenarios are supported in On Demand Recovery:

  • Restoring group owners associated with a Security Group.
