  • The 'sourceFieldOfUniqueId' is the field name which you will get after opening Azure token, mostly it will be "preferred_username" because it holds user email address.
  • Provide the groups name comma separated in the 'groupsColumn' field and provide the 'instance', 'database', 'table' from which that 'groupsColumn' exist.
  • The 'targetFieldForUniqueId' is your database field which contains the exact same value as the 'sourceFieldOfUniqueId' has.
