Does Active Directory Sync support Collections? Collections are Locked as "OFF"

Contributor

So Does Active Directory Sync support Collections?

 

I have it working fine for Settings and Favorites. I have blocked passwords, extensions and Addresses. History and Open Tabs are TBD but Collections is LOCKED off and I am not locking it?

 

Settings to enable the Roaming

User Configuration - Administrative Templates
Microsoft Edge
Browser sign-in settings = Enabled - Browser sign-in settings = Enable browser sign-in
Configure automatic sign in with an Active Directory domain account when there is no Azure AD domain account = Enabled - Configure automatic sign in with an Active Directory domain account when there is no Azure AD domain account Sign in and make domain account non-removable

Enable using roaming copies for Microsoft Edge profile data = Enabled
Set the roaming profile directory = Enabled
Set the roaming profile directory = ${documents}\Edge

Configure the list of types that are excluded from synchronization = Enabled
Configure the list of types that are excluded from synchronization
passwords
extensions
addressesAndMore

Enable the Collections feature = Enabled (Although this doesn't roam which I am not sure why)

I have the same problem with the following setting

 

BrowserSignin 2
ConfigureOnPremisesAccountAutoSignIn 1
ForceSync 1
RoamingProfileSupportEnabled 1
SyncDisabled 1

 

Setting someting in

"Configure the list of types that are excluded from synchronization" does not change anything

I have the same problem, did you find a solution?

No and in
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/microsoft-edge-policies#roamingprofilesupportenabled
Microsoft states the following:
"The settings stored in Microsoft Edge profiles (favorites and preferences) are also saved to a file stored in the Roaming user profile folder"

In
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/enterprise/roamingprofilesupportenabled-referred-to-in-other-...
there was also no solution found.

In
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/microsoft-edge-on-premises-sync
there is the same statement:
"In With on-premises sync, Microsoft Edge saves an Active Directory user's favorites and settings to a file that can be moved between different computers."

So it seems Microsoft either can not or does not really want to? At least at the moment. It would be great if that would change in the future, to be on par with the functionality of the old Internet Explorer.
