Create New MS Team From Group Using PowerShell: Item Not Found Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm in the process of scripting the creation of MS Teams using PowerShell. I want to create the associated Group first and then create the Team using the -Group parameter

    New-Team -Group "GUID"

    but this generates an error

    "Failed to execute MS Graph backend request GetGroupInternalApiRequest. The server failed to respond correctly. Response Code: NotFound, Reason: Reason: Not Found".

    I'm getting the GUID from Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "xxxxxxx". This brings back all the Group properties including GUID

    If I run New-Team -DisplayName "xxxxxx" that works so, as far as I can see, I'm connecting to O35 and running the commands correctly. Has anyone else tried to create Teams from existing Groups using PowerShell and found this problem?

  •  I raised a ticket with Microsoft and it seems that GUID is not the right property to use, it should be  ExternalDirectoryObjectID
