Azure AD - Identifying Users

Hello,

We currently have Azure AD Connect 1.4.38.0 configured and syncing to our O365 Tenant. We are bringing on another Forest that I've added into AAD. I don't see the "Identifying Users" option located under the 'Sync' option that we require to make sure users are identified only once in the environment. Wondering how to enable this feature?

Did you rerun the AAD Connect setup wizard?

Yes, but when you launch only gives repair/un-install. If you select un-install doesn't give any options to re-install custom items.

Not the install, the config wizard. You should have an icon on the desktop, if not look for it in the install directory. In a nutshell, launch the config wizard, select Customize Synchronization Options, Connect directories.

@ZoeTaite-4639 Please refer to below sections in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/hybrid/plan-connect-topologies.

Multiple forests, single sync server, users are represented in only one directory

Multiple forests: match users

  • Multiple forests: full mesh with optional GALSync

  • Multiple forests: account-resource forest

This is what we are after, but you need the missing identifying users function to define this behavior.
