Bulk Update with Company Name in Azure AD

Copper Contributor

Hello Community,

 

I'm trying to update users in bulk for the attribute of Azure AD which is called "Company Name" but when I tried to export all of the users in CSV, unfortunately, there was no such a column like that in the file. Is there anyway to workaround or there is a way to actually complete this without any hassle?

 

Thank you all for your supports!

 

P/S: I'm following this topic for the configuration: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-powershell/bulk-update-azure-ad-with-user-attributes-...

 

Also, what does "physicalDeliveryOfficeName" attribute mean since I saw a column in the exported CSV?

You should share the code, unless you want us to guess :) If you are using the New-AzureADUser cmdlet to set the attribute, there's a known issue with that. Use the Set-AzureADUser cmdlet post creation.

@VasilMichev I don't even know if it's new or old? I just want to get the job done and I said I followed the following PS script in this topic: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-powershell/bulk-update-azure-ad-with-user-attributes-...

 

Something like this by the replying of @Manfred101:

# Connect to AzureAD
Connect-AzureAD

# Get CSV content
$CSVrecords = Import-Csv C:\Temp\Test.csv -Delimiter ";"

# Create arrays for skipped and failed users
$SkippedUsers = @()
$FailedUsers = @()

# Loop trough CSV records
foreach ($CSVrecord in $CSVrecords) {
    $upn = $CSVrecord.UserPrincipalName
    $user = Get-AzureADUser -Filter "userPrincipalName eq '$upn'"  
    if ($user) {
        try{
        $user | Set-AzureADUser -Department $CSVrecord.Department -TelephoneNumber $CSVrecord.TelephoneNumber
        } catch {
        $FailedUsers += $upn
        Write-Warning "$upn user found, but FAILED to update."
        }
    }
    else {
        Write-Warning "$upn not found, skipped"
        $SkippedUsers += $upn
    }
}

# Array skipped users
# $SkippedUsers

# Array failed users
# $FailedUsers

 And when you tried to export the users in Azure AD to CSV, note that there is no "Company Name" column in the file, I also want to ask how to add it into the CSV file so that I can do the bulk update of Company Name for all of the Users since we actually have 3 entities in real life but managed by only 1 entities in IT section. Because of that, I have to create a Dynamic Group so that it can do the queries to sort which ones of which company and add to the correct Groups.

Well how are you exporting it, the code above has nothing that relates to exporting to CSV file. I can see the CompanyName attribute just fine via the Get-AzureADUser cmdlet...

@VasilMichev What am I doing wrong here?

I need to update office and company...

 

# Connect to AzureAD
Connect-AzureAD

# Get CSV content
$CSVrecords = Import-Csv C:\PSscripts\office.csv -Delimiter ","

# Create arrays for skipped and failed users
$SkippedUsers = @()
$FailedUsers = @()

# Loop trough CSV records
foreach ($CSVrecord in $CSVrecords) {
$upn = $CSVrecord.UserPrincipalName
$user = Get-AzureADUser -Filter "userPrincipalName eq '$upn'"
if ($user) {
try{
Set-AzureADUser -ObjectId $($_.ObjectId) -PhysicalDeliveryOfficeName $CSVrecord.PhysicalDeliveryOfficeName -CompanyName $CSVrecord.CompanyName
} catch {
$FailedUsers += $upn
Write-Warning "$upn user found, but FAILED to update."
}
}
else {
Write-Warning "$upn not found, skipped"
$SkippedUsers += $upn
}
}

# Array skipped users
# $SkippedUsers

# Array failed users
# $FailedUsers

CVS looks like this.

But i'm getting the error...

Warning: xxxx user found but failed to update.

 

If i do not use OBjectID, it throws an error...

cmdlet Set-AzureADUser at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:
ObjectId:

 

Appreciate your help.

 

Thanks

 

Have you found a solution to this? I need to assign different company names based on user's email domain
