Using the office 365 admin center and the office 365 admin username i created a new MS Teams as follow, and i name it "TestTeam123":-
now this have created a new Office 365 group + sharepoint modern team site. I also realized the following:-
- adding a member to the MS-Teams or Office 365 group will automatically grant the member user Edit permission on the sharepoint site. now this behavioure is understandable as inside the SharePoint site, we can find that inside the sharepoint member group >> there is an office 365 group's member added by default (which have the same name as the sharepoint members group) as follow:-
and most importantly, if i remove the above office 365 group's member from the sharepoint members group (i did this for testing purposes only, as on reality we should not do so), the Office 365 group's members will not longer have access to sharepoint site.
- But what i did not understand is that if we add an owner to the MS Teams/Office-365-group then the owner will have full control permission on the sharepoint site. so i thought that similar to the members case, i will find that the office 365 group's owner is added inside the sharepoint owner group, but this is not the case. but on the other hand i checked the SharePoint's site collection admins section, and i found this group is added by default:-
now based on the above case, i have the following 3 questions:-
for the above "TestTeam123 Owner" group added inside the site collection admins section, is this the sharepoint owner group? or it is the office 365 group's owners?
Why did Microsoft add the office 365 group's member inside the sharepoint member group, while it did not add the office 365 group's owner inside the sharepoint owner group?
for testing purposes i remove the "TestTeam123 Owner" group from the site collection admins section, but still the office 365 group's owners users have full control on the sharepoint site.. so what is going behind the scenes ? i did the remove around 20 hours ago, so i do not think it is a sync or timing issue...
