Hey Team,

Our active directory has been decommissioned, there is no AD connect, no sync but some users have AD info (SAM Account name, on-premises domain name, and On-premises distinguished name...) on their profile in Azure Active Directory.

How can we delete those information, is there any impact if we delete them?

Thank you for your help.

    Hello @jennifer

    Thank you for your reaching. Unfortunately, this information cannot be cleared using PowerShell or Graph. You can create an Azure AD Support ticket requesting to clear all On-Premises Attributes from previously synchronized users on your tenant. Support Team should be able to contact product group with your tenant information and help you achieve this.

    I hope this answer helps to resolve your issue. Please "Accept the answer" if the information helped you. This will help us and others in the community as well
