Hi, is there any not very complicated way to perform a user writeback (with passwords) from AAD to on-premises ADDS?
We have a lot of users in o365 and a goal to sync them to ADDS, not by onetime export-import, but on persistent base.
I met a discussions that user writeback was as a preview feature in ADConnect but was removed quickly.
So is it possible anyway?
Thank You for any proposal

    There is no native support for user writeback anymore, you can either use PowerShell export/import (easy to schedule periodically) or use a third-party tool aka GalSync.

    You can perform this with Azure AD connect. Its pretty straight forward with the right pre-requestees.

    With password writeback enabled in Azure AD Connect, you can also configure Azure AD SSPR for writeback. (self service password resets for users).

    Please have a look for more details. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/tutorial-enable-sspr-writeback
