I use Azure AD Connect version 1.1.750.
I undestand that there are 2 synchronization intervals:
  1. for attribute sync.
  2. for password sync.

The Attribute Sync has an interval of 30 minutes (by default, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/connect/active-directory-aadconnectsync-feature-scheduler). And I can verify that on our environment :

But what is the interval for the Password Sync ? 
I read things like "between seconds and 3 minutes".  Can anyone point me to a (MS) article on that and something I can verify on my environment ?
Thanks.

About 1/3 way down

Quote:
The actual data flow of the password hash synchronization process is similar to the synchronization of user data such as DisplayName or Email Addresses. However, passwords are synchronized more frequently than the standard directory synchronization window for other attributes. The password hash synchronization process runs every 2 minutes. You cannot modify the frequency of this process. When you synchronize a password, it overwrites the existing cloud password.



As far as I know, if you change a password and the DC sees the password change, the watcher service see's the change and pushes the password change, hence the 30 seconds quote.

Willem may chime in with very detailed info.

Thanks Joe, that's what I needed.

Always interested in "very detailed info" from Willem of course.
