    Hello @Francesco Zoino ,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    I think this feature has been deprecated due to security purposes, you need to use alternative approach like use PowerShell script to create users remotely or use SCCM.

    However, I have added right tag "windows-active-directory" to get expertise on this thread. Hope this helps.
