What happens with groups after moving to Directory synced users?

According to the documentation in user provisioning, you can manage groups and provisioning by groups after connecting to an identity provider. However, what happens to existing groups and group membership when converting to an identity provider?

Hi Zane,

It depends on how you set it up. You do not have to have all groups connected to your identity provider. Actually, I would just only one or two, depending on the need. When you connect the group to the provider, though, it will lock it in Jira and can only be updated by the provider. 

Hey John, thanks for responding. I have spent time testing this and I agree with you it is easier to manage syncing just a few groups through the identity provider. I have also confirmed that existing groups and membership is not affected as long as those groups are synced across.
