AAD Sync user requiries MFA?

Kent Söderlund 21 Reputation points


Im struggling with Azure AD sync. I get in the log that the user that AD sync creates cant login, and when I inspect the login log for that user the system requires MFA :(

I have not enabled MFA for all users and the user has MFA deactivated. But if I understand correctly the "Require MFA for all users - Basic" is default. Where do I disable that for this user?

    Go to AAD > Security > Conditional Access > Policy Snapshot > View all policies

    Switch off "Require MFA for all users - Basic"

    Install AD sync

    Switch On Require "MFA for all users - Basic" again
