Edit the Configuration of a Microsoft Entra ID Context Table

To edit the configuration of a Microsoft Entra ID context table:

  1. On the Overview tab, click the Options icon (icon-options.png) to the right of a specific Microsoft Entra ID context table and select Edit. The Configuration panel opens on the right.

  2. On the Definition tab, you can modify the following information:

    • Context Table Name – Enter a new name for the context table.


      Changing context table names is currently prohibited in order to avoid breaking functionality in downstream applications.

    • Microsoft Entra ID Collector – Select a different Microsoft Entra ID cloud collector as the source of data in the context table.

  3. Click on the Review Attributes tab to modify the attribute mapping for the context table.

    The attribute mapping table has the following columns (as shown in the image below):

    • icon-visible.png – Shows whether a specific attribute is visible as a column in the context table. Use the icon next to each attribute to toggle the display on or off.

    • Source Attribute – Shows a default set of attributes available from your Microsoft Entra ID. Some source attributes are listed simply as Calculated attribute. These are attributes that are calculated, either in format or in value. Hover over the Calculated attribute tag in the Source Attribute column to view a description of the attribute and its calculation.

    • Target Attribute – The Target Attributes column shows the Exabeam common user information model attributes that are mapped to the Microsoft Entra ID attributes in your context table. For an easy-to-read table of the default attribute mapping, see Default Microsoft Entra ID Attribute Mapping.

    • icon-key.png – Indicates that an attribute is designated as the key attribute for the context table. The designated key and its mapping cannot be changed.

    • icon-lock.png – Indicates that an attribute and its mapping cannot be changed.


    You can modify the mapping of Microsoft Entra ID attributes, that are not key or locked attributes, in the following ways:

    • Hover over an attribute row where you want to change the mapping.

    • Click the delete icon (icon-delete.png) to remove the currently mapped target attribute.

    • Then click Add Target Attributes and do one of the following:

      • Search for and select an existing target attribute to map it as the target.

      • Click Add Custom Attribute, enter a new attribute name, and click the plus icon (icon-add-attribute.png) to add it to the list of available target attributes. It will be added with a custom icon (icon-custom-attribute.png) to the left of the attribute name. Then select the newly created target attribute to map it.

  4. When you are satisfied with the configuration edits, click Update to save the changes.
