Instructions to create configurations of Azure AD attributes displayed in Jira
With Azure AD Attributes Sync for Jira, you can create configurations of Azure AD attributes displayed in your Jira project. You can display them either in the Issue View, or in the Request Details View, for users from the following fields:

You need to create a separate attribute configuration for each user field in a view.

The Licenses and Devices attributes
Licenses and Devices attributes allow users to show their company’s equipment and software license details. This, for example, enables the management to determine which devices and software belong to each user.
Licenses and devices can be displayed in the issue view application panel or copied to a custom field (see the Synchronization chapter).
User A has requested a new work computer. The ticket goes to User B for approval. User B checks the Devices attribute in the Azure panel to decide. They notice that User A already has four laptops assigned to them. User B knows that User A doesn’t need another computer, so they can immediately reject the request.
The attributes you select will be displayed in a panel in the selected view. If a selected attribute is empty, it won’t be displayed.
