First we will configure the Attributes.

  1. Navigate to Identity & Access Management > Setup > User Attributes
    Notice the attributes that are available and the option available to set these to Required. IMPORTANT NOTE: The attributes set to required cannot be changed after a directory sync has taken place.
    • Set the attribute distinguishedName and userPrincipalName to Required

      • objectGUID
