Custom Field Mapping with Identity Connector for Azure Active Directory

Alicia Allen Updated by Alicia Allen


Brivo's Identity Connector integration with Azure AD allows users to map Azure custom attributes with Brivo Access custom fields.


Before you begin, ensure that you have the following required elements:

  • An active Azure account
  • An active Brivo Access account with an Identity Connector subscription.
  • A configured Azure AD integration in Brivo Access.
  • A custom attribute in the existing Brivo Identity Management application in your Azure tenant.
  • Existing custom fields in Brivo Access. If they do not exist, you must create them directly in Brivo Access before they can be mapped in Azure AD. Your custom fields should not have any spaces in the field name.

Edit the attribute mapping

  1. Navigate to

NOTE: If you skip step 1, you will not be able to move past step 6.

  1. Click on the Microsoft Entra ID link, then on the Enterprise Applications link.
  2. Under All Applications, search for your Brivo application and select it.
  1. Click on Provisioning and then Edit attribute mappings.
  1. Under Mappings, select Provision Azure Active Directory Users.
  1. Check the Show advanced options checkbox, then click the Edit attribute list for Brivo Onair link.

NOTE: If you don't see this link, go to the URL in step 1 and navigate back to the Attribute Mapping page.

  1. In the name column, enter this schema followed by your custom field name from Brivo - urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:customAttributes:2.0:User. In this example, our Brivo custom field is employeeID, so we entered urn:ietf:params:scim:schemas:extension:customAttributes:2.0:User:employeeID

NOTE: Please make sure to copy the schema exactly and that your custom field name uses the same capitalization that you have in Brivo. Your custom field in Brivo should not have any spaces.

  1. Change the Type to the same field type used in Brivo Access.
