Allow update mail attribute for Azure AD User object throught REST API
Currently we are creating users in Azure AD through Azure AD Graph API (from our Identity Manager Application). Also we assign licenses using the same Rest API. Our users, among other thinks, uses Sharepoint Online and Skype for Bussiness Online. All of our users have his mailbox in an Exchange 2010 (on-premise), so they don't have the Exchange Online Plan. For Skype for Bussiness integration with Outlook, it's needed that the mail attribute on the Azure AD object be the same as the mail address in Outlook. The problem is that this attribute is read only throug rest API. Also, in Sharepoint Online, we can't send notifications to these users because they sharepoint profile doesn't have an email address.
So should be possible create Azure AD users with mail. Using Azure AD Connect the mail attribute is syncronized with Active Directory mail, why this is not possible using Azure Rest API?
We are investigating the technical requirements here to see whether we can move this to the backlog. -EY
