Using ADFS connection Does all On Prem user Profile will import into Azure AD automatically

    Question

  • Hi Team,

    We are in process to migrate SharePoint 2010 to 0365. We have Set up “ADFS” connection to connect On Prem AD with O365 environment.

    Problem: We are not able to see any User profile in SharePoint online UPS.

    Here I just want to check whether it is possible that Using ADFS connection Does all On Prem user Profile will import into Azure AD automatically?? or Do we need to do some additional configuration?

    Appreciate your response on the same.

    Regards,

    Deepak Singh

  • You need to do the DirSync (AADSync) between your on-premises AD and the Azure AD to import the users. Once the users are successfully imported then wait for sometime (might take a while) for user profile service to get synced with Azure AD.

  • Hi Rajesh,

    Thanks for Reply.

    I just want to check is this "DirSync" is a must condition to import  On-Prem AD to Azure AD. Can't we achieve this Using ADFS only?

    Please share any link/URL.

  • Hi Lakshmanan,

    Thanks for Update.

    Form above links it is clear that The “DirSync tool” is common to both of these scenarios -

    1.        DirSync with password sync
    2.        DirSync with Active Directory Federation Services
