Hi
Our azure ad connect synchronizes accounts from 2 active directories. However, one attribute may not be synchronized from one AD. Can I exclude this attribute with a sychronization rule?
Regards

    Hi peter

    Yes, you can exclude a specific attribute from being synchronized using Azure AD Connect synchronization rules. To accomplish this, you can create an inbound synchronization rule and use the Advanced Attribute Filter feature to exclude the desired attribute from synchronization.

    Here's an overview of the steps involved:

    1. Open the Azure AD Connect Configuration Wizard on the server where it is installed.
    2. On the "Configure" page, select the "Customize synchronization options" option and click "Next."
    3. On the "Optional features" page, click "Next" without selecting any additional features.
    4. On the "Configure connectors" page, select the connector associated with the Active Directory you want to exclude the attribute from.
    5. On the "Select the required connector operations" page, select the "Synchronize selected properties" option.
    6. On the "Select the attributes to synchronize" page, select the desired attributes to synchronize, excluding the attribute you want to exclude.
    7. On the "Configure join and projection rules" page, select "Continue without changing the current configuration" and click "Next."
    8. On the "Configure join and projection rules (Optional)" page, select "Continue without changing the current configuration" and click "Next."
    9. On the "Configure filtering" page, select "Continue without changing the current configuration" and click "Next."
    10. On the "Optional features" page, click "Next" without selecting any additional features.
    11. On the "Ready to configure" page, review the summary of changes and click "Configure."

    If this answer helps kindly accept it, thanks much
