How do I get Actions such as disabling an account to sync back to on-prem AD from Azure AD

I have a newly created tenant which as was synd using express settings for ADDConnect. If we disable an account in Azure AD it doesn't get synced back to on-prem?

Do we need to change something in ADDConnect to achieve this for actions like this taken in Azure AD?

    If you have E5, and you want to achieve this due to a security risk, you can make use of Defender for Identity to disable on-prem accounts.

    AADConnect is a one-way sync with some attributes written back to on-prem.

    The account must be disabled on-prem and that is synced to Azure, not the other way around. If you disable only in Azure, it will be re-enabled after the next sync if the on-prem account is still enabled.
