In Azure AD Connect, enable Group Writeback for all types of Azure groups (including Security groups, Mail-enabled Security groups, and Exchange distribution groups). This will enable us to utilize the Group Writeback feature to meet our business requirements. It is our opinion that the limitation of Azure AD Connect Group Writeback which restricts to only Microsoft 365 Groups greatly reduces the value of the feature, and we would like to understand why Microsoft decided to limit Group Writeback to only handle Microsoft 365 Groups. We would like to use Group Writeback for all types of Azure groups (including Security groups, Mail-enabled Security groups, Exchange distribution groups, in addition to Microsoft 365 Groups).
Thank you for consideration.

We also have business needs we cannot meet due to the issue of not being able to sync EXO distribution groups back from AAD to AD. This feature would be great! Please enable it!

Security Group writeback (from AAD to AD) would be great!
This would be great!

Great Idea, but think carefully about scenarios where multiple ADs are synched through AAD Connect, Ok to writeback changes to group that was synced up - but be careful with AAD created groups - which AD do I want to sync them to?
Rob Wismans commented
We are developing our own workarounds for this. We would certainly like to have this feature in AD Connect.

We certainly would love Security Group write back. We are implementing work arounds for now. It would be great if this is enabled.

I would love to have Security Group write back. This is something that i feel we could leverage quite well being that we can configure dynamic functionality.
Maxime Gagnon-Smith commented
that would be very helpful. we want to use azure access packages to define job roles & file share access but those are granted with onprem ad security groups. if group writeback worked form them it would solve our issue.
