Hello All, Currently we use Microsoft AD Connect to sync our users to Azure Entra ID. The limitation is this is a one way sync, from on prem to Azure, so all changes to AD accounts need to take place on prem. Is there a way to set it to bi directional so user accounts can changed/updated from either on prem or from Azure Entra ID? Thank You Craig

    Bi-directional sync with Entra ID is not possible. There are some things that can be written back to on-prem, such as passwords, if you have Self Service Password Reset Writeback enabled, but it is not possible to have everything bi-directional.
