We have Azure AD connect to sync objects from On-premises Active Directory to Azure AD & want to sync the Windows Account Name (Domain\samaccountname) to azure AD.

Is it possible to sync Windows Account Name (Domain\samaccountname) to azure AD?

Can anyone please advice how we can do that?

Thanks much.

    Azure AD Connect synchronizes the on-premises SamAccountName to Azure AD as OnPremisesSamaccountName, and it's mapped to "accountName" in the metaverse.

    For the newer versions of Graph API, it's exposed using either of these calls in Graph Explorer:

    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/synceduser@example.com?$select=onPremisesSamAccountName  
    
    https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/users/synceduser@example.com

    Let me know if this helps.
