I have created a Azure AD cloud only Security group and added few users from onpremise to the group. Now I want to create a group in same name and to match with cloud only group already exist. Is there any way to do it ?

I have alternate option to rename existing group in cloud and create a fresh group in onprem with users added which can be synced back to cloud but i dont want to opt for it.

Please advise

    Group writeback is an option for you, Azure AD Connect provides a feature called "group writeback" that allows you to write changes made to Azure AD groups back to your on-premises AD. By enabling this feature, you can create the group in Azure AD and have it synchronized back to your on-premises AD.

    I hope this helps :)
