I am reading up on Azure Security and I came upon the following words: pass-through authentication.

Below is what I found so far for a meaning: "Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Pass-through Authentication allows your users to sign in to both on-premises and cloud-based applications using the same passwords."


Does "pass-through authentication" have a different meaning than what I found from above?

I am referring to pass-through authentication,
taken from the context of: "

Synchronize directories with Azure AD Connect" From
