When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply.
When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply. If a user leaves the company or if we have new users, it is a manual process to add or remove them from a Team. Since we can select a Security group or Distribution list, changes to either should be reflected on the Team members.
This feature request is still working its way through the backlog queue.

When will this feature be released? It is vital to managing our Teams.

We are a hybrid exchange/ad environment and would like to be able to control the memberships of a local Security group that when synced to the cloud can become an Office 365 Group or Team. This would allow our on premises provisioning and user management system to automatically manage these services.
Repeated below for emphasis. This is really essential to basic administration. Manage by groups, NOT by users. This has been basic functionality since NT 3.1 and having to manually keep them in sync is a recipe for disaster.
"How does this get escalated to the top of the backlog? This is basic functionality that should be a requirement for the product to be considered viable. Group nesting should work by default even for synchroniced groups from on premise or Azure AD groups."

Update on this? How far in the backlog is this?

You can now make the teams membership dynamic.
Create the Team.
Set the membership type to dynamic in Azure AD and create an dynamic membership rule.
Kevin H. commented
this is a must have
This is basic to be able to meet compliance requirements, what is the ETA for implementation
Great this would save so much time, please implement!

I'm definitely interested in keeping my Teams permissions synced with my Security Group members! Is there a work-around that can be used (Flow or Powershell)? It's a hassle having to manage my permissions in 2 separate lists!
is there a way we can follow this so that when you update the backlog status we get alerted?

We use dynamic office 365 groups for RBAC. But we are unable to create a new Microsoft Team from those groups. We currently have to convert it to "assigned" create the Microsoft Team then switch it back to dynamic. This has slowed our roll out of Microsoft Teams, as well as our SharePoint Online migration and conversion to Modern sites within SharePoint Online.
Jake Platt commented
This is core to Microsoft philosophy. RBAC structure is central to a clean Active Directory. We have groups that target things logically and would love to just target those same groups for most of our teams. That way there is no overhead beyond what is already done to our existing AD structure. We have a few departments with significant turn over that will struggle to keep membership of teams accurate.

From what I understand (I haven't learned how to create one yet), dynamic group and team membership is already available, but once a team is configured to use dynamic membership, it will not let you add static members; e.g. you have a group ofr an org, but want to manually add a manager not in that org. This suggestion would make the use of dynamic membership trivial for users (no special configuration required) and it would allow dynamic and static membership to coexist within a group/team.
This just slightly alters the membership implementation in that having one or more dynamic groups as a member makes team membership dynamic (which is already supported) and the dynamic member list is the superset of the dynamic member groups and static members.
Very much needed, since DL constantly changes within our firm

Do you have an ETA for this feature being delivered?
as soon as possible

Excellent news! Can't wait to reduce our administrative overhead!
