  • Click on the Provision Azure Active Directory Users option and scroll down to attribute mappings
  • Remove unsupported attribute mappings except for "userName", "name.givenName", "name.familyName", and "title"
  • Add a new mapping called "externalId" and click "Save" after updating the mappings
  • Customise other options according to your requirements and click "Save". Ensure that the provisioning status is turned on
  • Here, the option Sync only assigned users and groups will provision only those users and groups that are added to the app, and, Sync all users and groups will create accounts for everyone.

  • Add the desired users to the application and click "Select"
  • Click on Assign. After the standard provisioning Interval for Azure, the user will be provisioned to SpotDraft
  • The users and groups page will be updated
  • Go to "Overview" and use the following options as needed:
    • Click "Start Provisioning" to sync selected or all users based on the settings. Please note that provisioning may take some time, so check the provisioning interval.
    • Click "Stop Provisioning" to halt the process.
    • Click "Restart Provisioning" to restart the process if any issues occur.
You can also use the provisioning on-demand option if we want to create a user right away.

STEP 6 (optional):

  • Click on "Provisioning on demand".
  • Provision the specific user if needed. Note that the user must be added on the users and groups page or the option to sync all users should be selected in the provisioning settings.
