Filter objects to synchronize by group

Is there any way to change this setting to enabled? Or do you have to completely re-install Azure AD Connect? Will that even work?

We want to change it so we only synchronise objects that belongs to a certain security group, as only a 10th of our users will use Office 365 and D365, and it will cost us a lot in Azure licenses if we synch all AD user accounts. I don't want to have to put them in a specific OU, as it will make administration harder.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

That setting is only configurable during the initial setup wizard. That said, simply synchronizing your user objects to Azure AD does NOT consume any licenses or incur any costs, so if that is your only reason for wanting to filter them out, you can just skip it.

Hello, thanks for the reply..

We need to buy P2 Azure Licenses for all our users, to start using the security features with it (like locking azure access down to one IP address, and access to D365).

If I uninstall Azure AD Connect, and re-install, will that give me the option to set it up then?

Yes, you can do a re-install to use that option.
