Access Reviews - Select Line Manager As Reviewer
Access for some applications/groups should be approved by the users manager. As the functionality is not available we cannot utilise the promising Access Review tool.
Thanks for taking the time to give feedback! We have the work to add managers as reviewers in our backlog, will update here once we have a preview to share!
Currently, we do support group owners as the reviewers, would that help with your scenario?
Would this functionality be your only blocker to use access reviews? I would love to know how you review access right now, any timelines you have. Thanks!

The access needs to be approved by line managers, and we wouldn't want group owners approving other peoples access. Whilst we could use the group owner functionality, there would be a lot of admin work reviewing the responses to ensure the right managers approved their own direct reports access.
We currently review 3rd party/internal AD accounts & group access on a monthly basis via a scheduled powershell AD extract, Excel/power query is used to format the data and VBA to generate the emails. The responses are then actioned manually.
If group access could be approved by the line manager we could migrate to Access Reviews as the feature looks very promising with a little further development & functionality.
