Support for multi-valued attributes synchronized from on premises AD
AD Connect supports synchronizing multi-valued attributes to AAD.
However, AAD doesn't support multi-valued attributes synchronized from on premises AD.
Would be great to have this supported so that for example Dynamic Groups can use multi-value attributes for group membership rules.
We are investigating what it would take to add support for multi-value attributes in Dynamic Groups to enable this and related scenarios.

Any update on this ?
It is very important to have a multi-valued attributes synchronized and usable as a filter for dynamic Groups.
I did workaround with a powershell script in AD to fill normal group with my needed criteria. But it is a waste of time and machine ressources.....
Thanks for finding a way to use synchronised multi-value attributes in Dynamic Groups

It is very necessary to use multi-valued attributes, e.g for dynamic AAD groups. We would like to use 'departmentnumber' to evaluate dynamic group membership.
But this attribute is multi-valued. It is synched indeed but I cannot use it for the evaluation of group membership.
So please make it possible to use multi-valued AD attributes.

How is the investigation going?

Needing this to move from federated to managed indentities. Any update / ETA?
Please advise if there is an update to this request. It will be incredibly useful to us.
Please make organisationsgrupper for Teams like they are in enkla samarbetsytor ;)

We want also the same attribute "departmentnumbre" for Dynamic groups.
We want also the same attribute "departmentnumbre" for Dynamic groups. I voted.

We use departmentNumber in our on-site AD as a cost number. Microsoft in default schema decided to make it a multi-valued attribute (although department is a single-valued). We use only the first row of it. I would be happy to be able to sync it to single-valued Azure attribute as a workaround. Possible?

Any update on status of investigation?
I agree, 1year later a update would be helpful.
why this investigating so long?

Yes, this would really be beneficial with Group Based Licensing. Now we have to create more SV custom attributes for assigning licenses......bummer!

Just chiming in here to also state that this would be helpful for Group Based Licensing.

Also at a large school organization we desperately require this.
We need to sync multi-valued attributes for Mimecast signatures. Why isn't this possible yet?
In the meantime, you could update the documentation on Azure extension attributes and Dynamic Groups. I just wasted 3 days of my client's time and money on this until I found this article.
this feature is absolutely critical for several of our customers. Any idea when this will be implemented? I notice there hasn't been any clear answer for 9 months... Is it still in the pipe? Thanks
