Please avail the user/group 'description' attribute in Azure.
We utilise the 'description' attribute extensively for university relationship AuthZ. As we have over 360,000 identities, using groups can't be used with AAD Connect/Azure due to the 50,000 member limit.
We are interested in moving our SAML apps from ADFS to Azure (over 100) as well as connecting some on-premises app to Azure with Application Proxy, however as we use 'description' to apply the necessary AuthZ, we consequently cannot move the apps.
The 'description' attribute is sync'ed from on-premises, so I'm sure it would be a simple thing to enable it for consumption in Azure.
I agree, we also use this user attribute in AD and we want to be able to sync it and use it for exclaimer/Signatures cloud.

I'd like to expand on this idea. I also need to use a description field for "cloud only" users.
