    Are we talking here about SharePoint Online or SharePoint Server? If it's online than the answer is no. – grisha Feb 5 '15 at 10:45

  • So you are using on-premises SharePoint, not SharePoint online, right? – Robert Kaucher Feb 18 '15 at 21:25

Why not using AD groups directly in SharePoint? They are a lot easier to manage, and you can assign permissions to them, the same way as you were using SharePoint groups.

  • But how could I add user to AD Group by Javascript ? – Grzegorz Z Feb 5 '15 at 11:01

    They aren't all quite the same. SharePoint can take hours to recognize changes to a user's AD group change. Also, workflows can't expand tasks inside an AD Group. That said, there is no native way to replicate Group Membership changes to the AD, needs to be implemented. – Choggo Feb 5 '15 at 11:30
