Need a quick answer so any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone have a powershell script to add ALL USERS and INDIVIDUAL USERS to AAD groups. We have a group in AZURE AD that I need to populate with several hundred users.

This is an Pure Cloud based solution of Office 365

Hi Gaurav, this has no on prem, it is purely cloud am trying to add users to an AZURE AD group, cant use the Import-Module ActiveDirectory

Import-Module : The specified module 'activedirectory' was not loaded because no valid module file was found in any module directory.

You can use the WAAD PowerShell module and the Add-MsolGroupMember cmdlet. For example, to add all users to a specific group:

$group = Get-MsolGroup | ? {$_.DisplayName -eq "test"} | select -ExpandProperty ObjectId

Get-MsolUser -All | % { Add-MsolGroupMember -GroupObjectId $group.Guid -GroupMemberObjectId $_.ObjectId.Guid }

Open in new window


Or, if you are using Exchange Online as well, take advantage of the Add-DistributionGroupMember cmdlet, which is far more convenient:

Get-User | % { Add-DistributionGroupMember DG -Member $_.UserPrincipalName -WhatIf }

Open in new window


Here are links to the modules:
