Sync mail attribute from Entra ID to local Active Direcotry

Copper Contributor


First question here and can't seem to find the answer anywhere.

I have an existing sync with Entra Connect/Azure AD connect, however for local LDAP purposes I need to have the "mail" attribute in local Active Directory populated with the value of the user emailaddress in Entra ID. Is there any way that I can modify the connector so Entra ID syncs this value to local Active Directory?

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,
Maik Brugman

Synchronization is always one way, from AD to Entra. The only exception is when you have the "Hybrid" setting enabled, which allows a limited set of attributes to be synced back, as detailed here:
"Mail" is not ones of those attributes, but proxyAddresses is, so perhaps you can leverage that.
