Do you know if there's a way to create several groups in sharepoint online by using powershell for instance?

Thank you.

$grpname = "Music","Movies","Famous_Singers","HollyWood"  

Connect-SPOService -Url https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com -credential admin@contoso.com

foreach ($group in $grpname) { 
    New-SPOSiteGroup -Site https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/siteA -Group $group -PermissionLevels "Full Control"

The above code is not tested, but logic should be correct

  • Thank you. The idea is to create several groups at the same time. Do you know how can I do it?
