Support for LDAP as source for sync to AAD via AAD Connect
We are gradually and intentionally diminishing the role that our on premises AD DS plays. To support this and allow for additional hybrid identity capabilities without having to rely on MIM/FIM, we would like to leverage our on premises LDAP user profile store as the source for user profile info in AAD via AAD Connect.
We have migrated 'cloud' authN to AAD via Azure PTA/sSSO and decommissioned ADFS and would like to continue to leverage AAD as the authoritative user profile store for all 'cloud' integrations in line with the on premises LDAP user profile store being authoritative for all user profile data for on premises integrations until such time as they migrate to 'cloud'.
Any news on this? This feature is really critical to keep an on-premise LDAP as Master for Master Data. Thank you.
Are there any news on this?
We are planning to support this in a future release of Azure AD Connect provisioning service.
+1 for this. The lack of support for LDAP in AADConnect or for Azure auth is very annoying. Time and again, Microsoft seem to omit support for open protocols, or for integrating with the customer's system.
I suppose there is an opportunity for some open-source developer to produce a synch tool for LDAP-AAD but it would be better if MS had addressed this requirement form the beginning

We are currently studying this feature and will respond back here when we can tell you more about it.
