Create push group to Office 365 that is mail-enabled?

Hi. We have a series of Okta-mastered users that we would like to group by facility into distribution and security groups. We have successfully created rules in Okta for that purpose. However, the problem is that they are created in Office 365/Azure AD as security groups, and we need them to be email-enabled distribution groups. How can we accomplish this?

Hello,

Currently Okta only imports security groups and does not import distribution groups.

Nick, is this possible now? It's been a long time since your response to Joseph.

Is there any update on this?

Our solution to this was to implement Azure Active Directory Connect (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=47594) in parallel with Okta. The impetus for this was primarily to pass extended attributes which were required for some Office 365 services (Skype for Business/Teams, Exchange 365, etc.) but it also rectified this issue at the same time.
