AD Connect convert groups and user to cloud

HI
We have AD connect who sync all users and security groups from local ad to azure.

Now we want to run cloud only but when we remove a security group from sync it delete it from cloud and we cant find it to restore as we do with users.

Question:
1. Can we convert a local security group from local ad to Cloud only with memebers
2. If we diasable ad connect, will it remove our security groups in azure or will it convert them with members ?

We have about 500 groups and all of them are used to give permission on sharepoint librarys.

Thanks.

You will need to disable dirsync to achieve that, and no, it will not delete any objects that have been synced already.

Hello @BB1084-9316,

Turn off directory synchronization on your Azure AD tenant and will convert all synchronized objects (DirSyncEnabled = True) to cloud objects(DirsyncEnabled = False).

You'll need to install the MSOnline (Azure AD v1 PowerShell) module, and then run Set-MsolDirSyncEnabled -EnableDirSync $false. More information, refer the following document: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/enterprise/turn-off-directory-synchronization?view=o365-worldwide .

Hope this helps.
