Need help installing IKEA ceiling light


Hello,

I have a ceiling light I'm trying to install. But from the ceilnigs, there are bunch of wires and I'm not quite sure exactly which wires to pair with the wires from the light. I would really appreciate your help. I've attached a pic of the ceiling and the pic of the light I'm trying to install. Thanks.

Agreed. Black and blue are pass through hots. Yellow is your switch leg.
