Allow to have more than 6 users and 6 groups per ODM role defined in ODM on Container

USAA has more than 6 groups defined in their current setup.  The current workaround is assemble all the groups with the same ODM role into one group in Azure AD and associate this group with one of the predefined groups. This way the setup is able to work with the 6 predefined groups and users.

    based on some research by the ODM dev team, it seems that there is a solution when using MS Entra ID (the new name for Azure AD), with plan P2:

    • Create a role in Entra ID that is equivalent to an ODM role (rtsAdministrators, resAdministrators...), with a 1 to 1 mapping.

    • In Entra ID, put that role on any group.

    The ODM team cannot do more on the ODM side to address this Idea.

    I hope it answers your request though.
