How to add Entra Custom security attributes to user's profile

Larry Scola 40 Reputation points

Hi, I am trying to add Custom security attributes from Entra to a user's profile. I am trying to make it so users can see it when they look up the user on Outlook or Teams. For example, one user may have "Team: abc" and another may have "Team: efg". All accounts could see that both users are members of the teams. Do I have to use an API for this or is there another way? If there API is the only solution what would that look like?

    Hi @Larry Scola ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    Please kindly understand the Outlook tag here we mainly focus on general issues about Outlook desktop client. Based on my research, i found that it's useful to assign custom attributes by updating the user (PATCH /users/id). More information: Manage custom security attribute assignments.

    Hope to help you! If the above doesn't help, i'm afraid that you need to post your case with Graph tag for more professional suggestions. Thanks for your understanding and support!
