I have created about 800 Microsoft Teams in a tenant and have some inconsistent behavior regarding the Team Members/Owners versus Group Members/Owners.
When adding members/owners to a Office 365 Group they appear as Microsoft Team members/owners after some delay (typically about 1 - 2 hours). On some Groups this does not happen.
My question basic question is why are the members/owners in sync for some Teams/Groups and not for others? Are others experiencing the same inconsistency? Are there work-arounds other than managing the members/owners on Teams in order to have consistent members/owners across Teams and Groups?
Here is how we created the Teams:
- Create Office 365 using Graph API (groups endpoint) with app-only permissions with no members and only one owner
- Group owner logs into Teams client and migrates the Group to a Team
- Group members are added using Graph API (groups endpoint) with app-only permissions or via Groups User Interface in Outlook (logged-in as Group owner)
I created a support cases with Office 365 support and learned that Teams and Groups are regarded as separate/disconnected entities and therefore the Group members/owners are not 'replicated' to the corresponding Team. But Team members/owners are always replicated to the corresponding Group.
