Problem Statement:

How do I get Teams Owners of any Teams Group


Solution:

One of the important aspects of Teams Administration is to get the owners of any Teams Group.

In this article we will understand how to get the owners of a Teams group using various methods. 


1. Using Teams Admin Center


  • Search for the Team from the list available and click on the name


  • It will show the Teams group along with its members. You can do a sorting on the Roles column to see the owners.



2. Using Azure Portal


  • Go to Azure Portal
  • Select Azure Active Directory and select Groups 
  • Search for the Teams groups you want to get the owners of.


  • Click on the Group Name and click on the owners on left menu.



  • This will show you list of all the owners of the Group.



3. Using PowerShell


Make sure you have Teams PowerShell module installed. Refer Teams PowerShell install for more information.

Once the module is installed run below cmdlets

Connect-MicrosoftTeams  
# Use Teams Admin credential to connect to MS Teams
Get-TeamUser   
-GroupId <String>   
[-Role <String>]  
[<CommonParameters>]


Example: Get-TeamUser -GroupId 2f162b0e-36d2-4e15-8ba3-ba229cecdccf -Role Owner

 

To get the Group ID use cmdlet Get-Team -DisplayName "Teams Display Name"



Below is a snapshot of the PS cmdlet used to get the Teams owner of "cvnew" Teams Group.



4. Using CoreView Portal

The easiest option out of these 4 is to use CoreView.


  •            Then choose Teams Group.

  • Based on your permission this will show all the Teams group.
  • Search for the Teams group you want to know the owner of and click on the display name.

  • Click on the Owners Tab to see al the owners



Please Note that there is also a dedicated report available in CoreView called Teams Members where you can apply filter on Users to find all the Teams Group the user is member/owner of. This is very helpful when you want to add/remove a user's Teams membership based on another user.
