(updated) group description via directory to AD sync doen't work

We push groups wth directory integration to our Microsoft AD.

This works fine, but if i change (or add) the group description within OKTA the description isn't updated in AD (also not after manually pushing the group)

Hi Arjan,
Thanks for posting your question here.
This usually happens when the service account doesn't have enough permissions to make changes on your server. Please check the service account that you are using for Okta-AD integrations and make sure it has rights to update your groups, users etc. then try again.

Thank You,

The OKTA service account is member of domainadmins so that shoud'nt be 'the' problem i guess?
