    Thank you for your post and I apologize for the delayed response!

    When it comes to checking for the most up to date version of MS Entra (Azure AD) Connect ( released 10/11/2023), you can reference the Microsoft Entra Connect: Version release history documentation to get the most up to date information. Additionally, adding onto what was mentioned by Simon, you can leverage the Get synchronizationSchema REST API to view your synchronization schema version.

    View the synchronization schema:

    1. Go to Graph Explorer.
    2. Sign in with your global administrator account.
    3. On the left, select modify permissions and ensure that Directory.ReadWrite.All is Consented.
    4. Run the query$filter=startswith(DisplayName, ‘{sync config name}’). This query returns a filtered list of service principals. This can also be acquired via the App Registration node under Microsoft Entra ID.
    5. Locate "appDisplayName": "Active Directory to Azure Active Directory Provisioning" and note the value for "id".
    6. Replace {Service Principal id} with your value, and run the query{Service Principal id}/synchronization/jobs/.
    7. Locate "id": "AD2AADProvisioning.fd1c9b9e8077402c8bc03a7186c8f976" and note the value for "id".
    8. Now run the query{Service Principal Id}/synchronization/jobs/{AD2AAD Provisioning id}/schema.

    Replace {Service Principal Id} and {AD2ADD Provisioning Id} with your values.

    1. This query returns the synchronization schema.
