We are currently only syncing Users and groups from on-Prem AD to our Azure Tenant
We see that some of our Windows 10 machines and some users personal devices show as Azure AD registered in Devices section of AAD

Dow e need to sync Our AD joined Windows 10 machines to Azure AD as well.

What are we missing if we dont do that

Microsoft Entra ID

    @Vivak Hangloo , Since the machines and personal devices got Azure AD registered, hence their device object got created in Azure AD with the device assigned to that user under whose context the Azure AD device registration happened.

    In this case no need to need to sync the device objects to cloud. In case in future you plan to get your organization machines to get Hybrid Azure AD joined, at that point of time syncing these device objects would be required.

    Hope this helps.

    You would need this for features such as Intune and Autopilot, or Windows Hello for Business and Conditional Access on the auth side of things. If you are not using such features, you don't need to worry about device sync.
