  • Hi, 

    Password hash synchronization : This is a feature which synchronize the user hash from the on-premise active directory to the cloud Azure AD instance. You can use this  sign in to a several cloud services like O365 with on-premise AD password.

    Password write-back : If this feature is enabled you can change the user password from the cloud and this will be written back to your on-premises active directory.
