I am excited to announce that group-based licensing is now generally available! As part of our general availability release, we made the service more scalable by adding these capabilities:
– Developer APIs in Microsoft Graph to allow you to programmatically read group-based licensing assignments on groups, as well as programmatically get assignment status and errors.
– Ability to reprocess group-based licensing assignments for a single user.
– Simplified licensing requirements for group-based licensing. Users who are targeted for group-based licensing need Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Basic (and above), or Office 365 E3/A3 (and above).
To start using group-based licensing, look at our Assign licenses to users by group membership in Azure AD documentation.
We always love to hear your feedback and suggestions, and we look forward to hearing from you! Let us know what you think in the comments section.
