Bug Fix: Active Directory group name changes should syncronize to SharePoint Online site Collection

Note: This idea reflected in case# 616031193642732.

Scenario: An AD group is assigned permissions to a SharePoint OL site within a SharePoint Security Group.

Problem: Group name changes in active directory are automatically reflected in O365 after DirSync runs but name changes are not automatically updated in existing SharePoint site collection.

Solution: Ensure changes to AD group names in O365 are automatically updated in the SharePoint OL site collection.

    anyupdate oin this I still ahve names incorrectly named. Makes it very difficult auditing access when the names don't match AD

    If not automatically, please allow for a method to do this manually / scripted. I've tried using the web interface, but it doesn't allow for name changes of Azure AD groups. I tried PowerShell for SharePoint Online, but couldn't find any method of updating the display name of a Azure AD group linked to SharePoint Online.
