Details:

The Azure Active Directory settings that control how users can create security and Microsoft 365 groups have been updated.
In the Azure portal, if you set either Security Groups or Microsoft 365 Groups to No, your settings may have been updated to Yes. Please validate these settings are correct for your tenant.
Here are the previous settings:

Here are the new settings:

The previous settings, when set to No, would still allow users to create groups in PowerShell and APIs and other portals, but not in Azure portals. To ensure this setting is honored consistently across the Azure portals, PowerShell, and API, we introduced an updated setting.
The new settings, when set to No, will not allow users to create groups in Azure portals, PowerShell, or via the API.
The new settings, when set to Yes, will allow users to create groups in Azure portals, PowerShell, and via the API.
Starting in May 2021, there was a transition period of a few weeks where you could select your preferred default values before the new settings took effect. If you did not specify your preferred default values during this transition period the new settings were set to the previous API settings. If you had previously set these values to No in the Azure portal, these values may have been reset during the implementation if the API settings still allowed users to create groups.
