Now, to fix this error, I followed the below quick steps.

1. You need to install the AzureAD module. Execute the below command using Windows PowerShell ISE or Windows PowerShell.

Install-Module -Name AzureAD

There might be a chance you will get the error “No match was found for the specified search criteria and module name ‘AzureAD’”. Try Get-PSRepository to see all available registered module repositories. To fix this, follow my article No match was found for the specified search criteria and module name ‘AzureAD’

Once you successfully install the AzureAD module, You can connect to the Azure.

2. You must call the Connect-AzureAD cmdlet before calling get-azureadgroup. Use the below command and then enter your credentials when asked.
