We have shipped a public preview of integration with AAD DS: https://azure.microsoft.com/blog/azure-active-directory-integration-for-smb-access-now-in-public-preview/
What we have in preview is a first step along a much larger roadmap for integration with AAD/AD for authentication and authorization. As the blog post says, this initial preview is really about Windows cloud VM access to the Azure file share with an AAD identity. Future refreshes to this feature will add non-Windows (Linux, macOS, etc) support, and the ability to mount the Azure file shares on-premises with your AAD identity. You can learn more about this in our Ignite session as well (at around 22:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMzh2M66E9o
We’ll keep you updated on our progress. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to continue posting feedback on this feature below.

Why are there no details on the product roadmap for this thing?
We already have a functional AAD synching with on-prem AD. Why should we have to set up AADDS on top of that? Is there any plan to leverage AAD without the other overhead?

We've also added them as extended attributes, but they're functionally useless from normal Powershell. And I have yet to see a guide on Graph API (beyond super-basic queries) that's pitched to administrators and not devs. How do you select a user and modify a property? How do you filter and run through a list of accounts and update a property? Maybe such guides exist, but I haven't seen one
