One of the pieces of feedback we received from a previous ENow post (integrating your temporary COVID tenant with your on-premises environment), was the fear of introducing errors and interrupting processes that now rely on the Azure AD tenant. This, indeed, may be the case when you rely solely on Azure AD Connect’s soft matching capabilities and wield a narrow scope for synchronization of objects.

Powershell functions can be created as advanced functions. These functions behave very similarly to built-in Powershell cmdlets. Because I can't do without the ability to add a -Verbose or -Debug parameter to my functions now nowadays, these are the only kind of functions I build. Advanced functions, just like "dumb" functions, have parameters. The parameters are the values that are passed into the function from your script.
Once a business begins to use Active Directory more and more, depending on how large the organization is, objects have the tendency to become "stale." Every employee typically has an Active Directory user account. They are assigned one the day they are hired. At the same time, if they received a computer, that computer was probably joined to the Active Directory domain. Now, let's say they were assigned to a personal printer and they need to share that printer with “Bob” down the hall. “Susie's” printer could now go into Active Directory. What about Susie's computer's DNS record? Many companies choose to integrate DNS with Active Directory as well which is yet another object in Active Directory! You get the point.
