become the Azure AD cloud user to the internal AD

Regular Contributor

Hello,

we have cloud only users in Azure AD. Now we like to create an internal AD. Is it possible to become the Azure AD cloud user to the internal AD?

The other way around I can use AD Connect.

 

Regards

Stefan

There is no such way currently available with adconnect!
If it’s lot of users you could export users to a csv and Use PowerShell to add these users to your ad! And make sure you can match these with the cloud accounts when you sync them
Yes. You scan setup the local AD and as long as the account login names match you can sync them using adconnect after the fact.

I was reading it as syncing users to on-premises AD! That’s not possible but as @Chris wrote, creating them I AD - and then merging them with the cloud users is indeed possible! :)

Thanks for all your answer. How I can merge the users (onpremise and azure AD)?

Yes. When you run azure ad connect, you have an option to choose from a bunch of user properties to match on premises user to an existing azure ad user. It's easiest if they have same SMTP account.
