Hello,

We are currently using Exclaimer to create all of our signature blocks within out tenant. Prior to moving to Azure AD we were using "Info" and "Comment" fields in Active Directory. Now that we have transitioned to AAD the users that had information listied in those fields retianed them but we are not able to see where we can access, change, and or modify them now with Azure. Any assistnace would be greatly appreciated...just hoping to be able to modify the fields in use so I do not have to recreate all new fields and redo our signature templates.

    Hi @Allan Eisenhauer

    Thank you for posting this in Microsoft Q&A.

    I understand that you are trying to find and edit fields "Info" and "Comment" that you were using when your AD was on-prem now that you have moved to Azure AD.

    In some cases, there are some attributes that your organization does not want synchronized to the cloud since these attributes contain sensitive personal data, like info attribute. If you would like to sync any attribute which does not supports direct sync, you would need to use Directory Extension Attribute Sync.

    For your reference: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/entra/identity/hybrid/connect/reference-connect-sync-attributes-synchronized

    Attributes that have been synchronized through the Directory extension are only accessible through Graph Explorer.

    Sample Query to get "Info" and "Comment" from Graph explorer.

    For your reference: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/entra/identity/hybrid/connect/how-to-connect-sync-feature-directory-extensions

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you any further queries.

    Thanks,

    Navya.
