Add Office 365 Group Into Practice Protect Role

Purpose

This guide covers the process of nesting Office 365 Groups into Practice Protect Roles, this reduces the management overhead between the two systems and allows you to administer most permissions from Office 365 and simplifies the new user creation process. If this is not your Practice Protect deployment type please refer to this guide.

Roles can be used to delegate overall Portal Access or individual access to applications. There is no limit to how many Groups that can be mapped from Office 365 to Practice Protect.
