A new version (1.1.819.0) of Azure AD Connect (the directory synchronization tool for Office 365 / Azure AD) has been released.

You can get it from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=615771

This new version includes new capabilities like:

  • Integration with PingFederate (in preview), allowing you to use Azure AD Connect to configure PingFederate for federation with Office 365/Azure AD


  • An updated troubleshooting utility to assist in troubleshooting in Linked Mailboxes or AD Dynamic Group sync issues; or SQL connectivity with a dedicated module (ADSyncTools.psm1)
  • Device write-back (if not yet configured) is now performed only through the Azure AD Connect wizard; no need anymore to run all the PowerShell commands


This version also includes lot of fixes.
