Recursively search Azure Ad group members

When working with on-premise Active Directory an administrator often has to recursively search AD groups, this is easy using the ActiveDirectory module with cmdlet ”Get-AdGroupMember <Group> -Recusive”.
For the AzureAD equivalent this is no longer an option, the cmdlet Get-AzureADGroupMember has three parameters.

-All <Boolean>
If true, return all group members. If false, return the number of objects specified by the Top parameter
-ObjectId <String>
Specifies the ID of a group in Azure AD.
-Top <Int32>
Specifies the maximum number of records to return.

As we can see there is no -recursive, in order to search recursively I’ve written the function below.

The function accepts groups by parameter or by pipeline and returns only the object type ‘User’

To run a recursive AzureAD Group member search simply pipe a normal ADgroup search as below
