Ibrium is attested campaigning against the city of Abarsal during the time of vizier Arrukum, he took office after Arrukum during the last two years of Irkab-Damu's reign and continued to hold office during the reign of Isar-Damu, he kept his position for about 20 years and was succeeded by his son Ibbi-Sipish thus establishing a parallel dynasty of viziers next to the royal family.
Ibrium waged a war against Armi in his ninth year as vizier, the texts mentions that the battle happened near a town called Batin (it could be located in northeastern Aleppo), and that a messenger arrived in Ebla with news about the defeating of Armi. He also conducted several campaigns against rebellious vassals and concluded a peace and trading treaty with Abarsal.
