AD Connect Transform to match on-prem UPN to cloud

How would I create an inbound transformation rule to match on-prem UPN accounts that are <firstinitial><lastname> to Azure AD accounts that are <firstname>.<lastname>. I am assuming it is an inbound expression targeting UPN. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello @Jeremy Cornwell ,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Are you attempting to match/merge individual user accounts in On-premises and Azure AD based on UPN? If this is the case, you do not need to create any inbound transformation rules in the Azure AD connect sync tool; instead, you may utilize the soft match feature to match users accounts when their UPN or SMTP match across objects in the cloud and on-premises.

    To learn more about Hard-match vs Soft-match, refer following links. Please help me in better understanding if I have missed something. Thanks

    Hope this was helpful.
