Set-EOPGroup

 

Applies to: Exchange Online Protection

This cmdlet is available only in Exchange Online Protection.

Use the Set-EOPGroup cmdlet to modify general group object attributes in Microsoft Exchange Online Protection (EOP) standalone. This cmdlet isn't available in Exchange Enterprise CAL with Services (EOP Premium). In EOP Premium, use the Set-Group cmdlet.

noteNote:
Typically, EOP standalone customers that also have on-premises Active Directory organizations would use directory synchronization to create users and groups in EOP. However, if you can’t use directory synchronization, then you can use cmdlets to create and manage users and groups in EOP.

This cmdlet uses a batch processing method that results in a propagation delay of a few minutes before the results of the cmdlet are visible.
