Office 365 – Office 365 Groups/Teams naming policy is now manageable from Azure AD portal

You may already know that you can define naming policy for your Office 365 Groups, which also applies to Microsoft Teams. Until now, this was done by connection with PowerShell.

Now, you can manage (create/update) your naming policy as well as the blocked words list from your Azure AD portal.


  • From there you can manage your blocked words list (Blocked words tab) and/or update your naming policy (Group naming policy tab)


If you already had a policy and want to delete it, then you can also do it from there by using the Delete policy button.

This is making things easier for you to manage naming policies for Office 365 Groups/Microsoft Teams
