In this multi-part series we show you how to handle the Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams governance toolkit. The next article cover the governance part of our Groups Governance Toolkit.Imagine your company policy requires at least 2 owners per Office 365 Group or per Microsoft Team. In this part, we want to monitor all groups that are ownerless (orphaned), or do not comply with our organization's policies. The IT department shall get the information of all groups and teams where there are no owners or not enough owners and the possibility to fix that. Read below how this can be accomplished.
Delegate365 is a user-friendly tool to enable delegated management of users, licenses, and groups. This means that only objects assigned to a scope administrator are displayed in Delegate365.

After the introduction of the Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams Governance Toolkit and with the necessary requirements we are now looking into Azure Functions. In our group and team provisioning scenario, we need a little code for provisioning of an Office 365 group and a Microsoft team.

In part 1 of this series we described the scenario for our Office 365 groups governance toolkit. In this part we will setup a workflow for the Office 365 and Microsoft Teams provisioning. Workflows help to follow specific processes for a successful collaboration.

A frequently asked request is how to provision a new Microsoft Team in Office 365 in a secure and monitored way. See how this can be implemented here.
To allow an app to create a Microsoft group or team programmatically in a workflow, we will use the Microsoft Graph API, Azure Functions and Flow or Logic Apps. With these technologies, we can create powerful workflows to offer a self-service for users to create a team when needed, approved by the manager and being provisioned with all the necessary properties and permissions.
