How to match AD group to AAD group?

Paul Ostaszewski 1 Reputation point

We're in a hybrid environment. My boss created a Azure group for inclusion to our 3rd party O365 backup solution. Their instructions were written in a way that it didn't explain that if you're in a hybrid environment, you should create the group in AD and use ADConnect to sync the group up to O365 or Azure AD. The issue I have is that I would like the group to be included in the standard issued groups for when a user is created in AD but there is no group in AD that matches the AAD inclusion group.

Is there a way to create the group in AD and match/sync it to the AAD group?
