Decommission Azure AD Connect V1

The one-year advanced notice of Azure AD Connect V1's retirement was announced in August 2021. As of August 31, 2022, all V1 versions went out of support and were subject to stop working unexpectedly at any point.

On October 1, 2023, Microsoft Entra cloud services stopped accepting connections from Azure AD Connect V1 servers, and identities will no longer synchronize.

If you are still using Azure AD Connect V1 you must take action immediately.

Migrate to cloud sync

Before moving to Microsoft Entra Connect Sync, you should see if cloud sync is right for you instead. Cloud sync uses a light-weight provisioning agent and is fully configurable through the portal. To choose the best sync tool for your situation, use the Wizard to evaluate sync options.

Based on your environment and needs, you may qualify for moving to cloud sync. For a comparison of cloud sync and connect sync, see Comparison between cloud sync and connect sync. To learn more, read What is cloud sync? and What is the provisioning agent?
