Azure Active Directory Group Import

This section explains how to search for and import groups from Azure Active Directory into Bold BI.

NOTE: A connection to Azure Active Directory must be configured in the Azure Active Directory Settings on the General page in order to import groups.

Only users belonging to the System Administrator group can import Azure Active Directory groups into Bold BI.
