Any information on interface used by Azure AD connect

We are planning to migrate our data from on premise active directory (https://directory.apache.org/apacheds/) to Azure AD.

We got to know about two approaches, one is Azure AD connect and Graph APIs. I am trying to understand more on Azure AD connect, on the interface it uses to connect to Azure AD and if that is publicly available so that we can connect using our own custom way?

Azure AD Connect by default only allows you to use Windows Server Active Directory as your on-premises directory. Azure AD Connect does have support for a Generic LDAP connector, which is what you would likely need to use here. This Generic LDAP connector is included with Azure AD Connect, and usage of it is supported - ie: if it doesn't work right, support will help investigate and escalate to engineering if needed. However, setup and configuration of this Generic LDAP connector is something that takes a pretty strong understanding of either Azure AD Connect or FIM/MIM (Forefront Identity Manager/Microsoft Identity Manager), two other synchronization/provisioning products that Microsoft produces. If your company does not have the required knowledge on how to configure Azure AD Connect to correctly pull data from your non-Windows Server Active Directory LDAP directory, you'll need to engage a consultant of some kind to handle the implementation.
