Hi everyone,

If we sync ADDS users to existing Entra ID tenant, the only different is I need to cater matching the on-Prem objects to Entra ID objects?

And I can sync on-Prem objects with OU based or Attribute-based filter to Entra ID

    Hi @Leo Lee

    The only way to sync on-promise user account to a Existant Entra ID tenant is through Entra ID Connect.

    You have many way to match user account in Entra ID and your active directory by using soft match (mail , proxy ...ect ) or hard match by using msds-ConsystencyGUID in active directory and ImmutableID in EntraID.
