I would like to sync multiple (but not all) AD groups from on premise to Azure AD. I would like to also sync the users included in these groups from on premise to Azure AD. I would then use the Azure AD groups to provide access to different applications.

How is it best to do this?

    Syncing by groups alone is not supported in production however - only for a pilot test
    So, sync your on-prem forest and filter out any OUs not needed in the sync and ensure the groups and users in those groups that you DO need are not in any OU you may be filtering out.
