Configure mappings
  • It is important to only include attributes configured in both Privacera and Azure AD. Below is a list of default attributes supported by Privacera Usersync, any additional attributes should be removed from the Azure AD mapping unless added to the Privacera Usersync configuration as well.


    displayName	:	displayName		
    members		:	members


    userPrincipalName	  :	userName		
    Switch([IsSoftDeleted]...):	active		
    mail			  :	emails[type eq “work”].value		
    givenName		  :	name.givenName		
    surname			  :	name.familyName


Microsoft Azure AD does not support syncing service principals or nested groups, thus Privacera also cannot support these specific capabilities.

Configure scope
  • Select Sync all users and groups or Sync only assigned users and groups.
