GPO management can't add group to Security Filtering

I created a GPO to  test Account Lockout policy. It's linked to domain, then when I tried to add a security group, 'testGPO' by clicking 'Add' and typed the group name, then select OK to add, it doesn't add.

Am I doing something wrong?

I am assuming you are selecting the "Add" option in the Security Filtering Pane.

Click Advanced, select Find Now.

This will return all available entries you can add to the GPO.

Please confirm your Security group is listed.

Nevermind, I had to give delegation with read and apply first to add to scope
