Hiding An Azure AD Sync’d Group or User from Global Address

I have a Azure AD Synced group that I don’t want people to see from the address book. Since it’s a synced account I can’t do much in Office 365 console once it’s synced.

So how can I do that? Turns out, it’s pretty easy and straightforward.

Open Active Directory Users and Computers on your computer, make sure Advanced Features is checked under View tab.

Find the account, double-click it, and go to the Attribute Editor tab. Scroll down until you find one attribute called msExchHideFromAddressLists. Double-click it and set the value as True.

And then wait until the next sync cycle finishes before seeing the group or user disappearing from the list.
