I’m seeing a small but strange issue in an environment that has Okta, on prem AD, Azure AD and O365.  

There are users in Azure/O365 with usernames using the federated, however I do not see them in on prem AD. They are classified as “in-cloud”.
So how come if I try and create another user in Azure or O365, I cannot specify the same in its username since I get an error that the domain is federated?
