Synchronize the "employeeType" attribute from Active Directory to Azure AD and make it visible in the Azure Portal

Jason Crawford 0 Reputation points


I want to make the AD "employeeType" attribute visible in the Azure Portal UI. I have already selected the "employeeType" attribute for synchronization within Azure AD Connect under "Customize synchronization options".

I can see the attribute is synced within metaverse but there is no value in the Azure Portal UI.

I have tried creating an inbound rule, with no success

Can someone point me in the right direction please or is this attribute only visible using PowerShell and Graph?

Thanks in advance!

    @Jason Crawford Thank you for reaching out to us, if you have successfully added the attribute via custom extensions option in Azure AD Connect and performed a sync, then the same attribute can be seen via Graph Explorer or PowerShell, below is the screenshot which I captured from Graph Explorer for reference

    Via PowerShell below is the approach you can follow
