Attribute Mappings from SiQ to an Azure User Profile

As shown in the Azure Mapping Editor, the base profile that Azure imports from SiQ consist of 20+ attributes. Some of these attributes are mapped to the Azure user profile by default.

Custom Attributes

Azure's SiQ application has been enhanced to support user-defined custom attributes, which enables Azure to import more than 20 attributes to SiQ. These attributes will be created and mapped manually.

Troubleshooting Tips

  • Users without First Name and/or Last Name in their SiQ profiles cannot be imported to Azure as new users
  • Azure users without Departments cannot be imported to SiQ as new users
  • In the event that a department also has teams (sub-departments), SiQ expects Organizations/Divisions that contain top level organization and department to also contain a Team name

Example: Organization: Engineering with Department : QA
