We're planning to develop a mobile team management app that allows us to manage certain aspects of user and team information. One aspect of this is a room management system, where user can sign in and out of rooms they are currently working in, using the NFC readers on their phone and a tag on each door.

 

With Graph API this would be extremely easy to do. However, we have a hybrid environment with AD Connect and updating the officeLocation attribute through Graph API fails, because there is no attribute write-back.

 

Are there any plans to enhance Azure AD and specifically AD Connect to allow for user attribute write-back to Active Directory?

Hi @Daniel Niccoli 

 

As of this moment, there hasn't been any announcement for these kind of capabilities. Maybe at Ignite this year,  but I wouldn't get your hopes up.
