    User writeback is not currently supported. The product group is working on adding this capability in the future. Right now it is possible to write back passwords and groups, but not users.

    However you build around it with a topology like this if you need to provision user in azure for hybrid env

    Azure AD -> Azure AD Domain Services -> forest trust -> On prem ADDS -> Azure AD connect -> Azure AD

    That would solve your problem if I understand you correct
