  1. Allow different login branding customizations per-domain

    We have a number of subdomains in our tenant which are used for various purposes - clients, partners, staff etc.
    It would be great to be able to customise the login branding customisation settings on a per-domain basis rather than globally across the tenant.

  4. No Microsoft account

    Please scrap the whole Microsoft-account mess. I don't now how many services that get associated with the wrong account. I have a business Azure AD account to use for business purposes, and right now I have to dig around to find the services I am looking for as they are apparently under two different accounts, with the same name.

  5. Display name display plus sign and not blank space

    We connect our Windows 10 devices and stations to Azure AD to enable SSO for Office 365. And it work great within Edge browser.

    But sometimes, and we did not find out when, display name of user is broken by put "+" sign to display name for user. In this time, sign in does not work and user must log out itself from browser and log in back to gain access to Office 365.

    Example:
    Login: user@company.cz
    Display name: User, Name (Company CZ)

    And when Windows display it like User, Name+(Company+CZ), then sign in does not work.

    We do not…

  7. Device-level authentication as primary authentication like ADFS 4.0 (Windows 2016) in Azure AD

    It would be AWESOME, if Azure Active Directory would provide device-level authentication as primary authentication like ADFS 4.0 (Windows 2016)

    We need this please!

  8. Support HTML support in Azure AD Branding

    My colleague and I receive several customer requests regarding enabling support HTML support in Azure AD Branding like Samuel D. (Mr.ADFS) provided for ADFS.

    Microsoft currently only support plaintext for the "sign in page text".

    Please support the following bold, italics, colours, etc. text and support href links?

    Top request is for bold text and links. We don't need advanced stuff like JavaScript injection like in ADFS.

    Thanks so much for the feedback! We know how important it is for users to have the ability to customize their app list and make it very easy to find their core applications.
    Customizations of the My Apps portal for both end users and admins are top priority on our roadmap. This includes providing the ability to re-arrange and group apps and provide users sets of categorized apps.

    Please keep sharing your feedback and ideas around this!

  11. Bug - Azure Portal - Active Directory

    There are two "Default Directory" in the Active Directory tab of my account. I think this is a bug because whey would two be created when the system provisiioned the account.

  14. Stop loggin on with Org account by default!!!

    For some reason, MSFT decided that automatically logging onto he O365 org account by default was a good idea? Why? Almost everyone uses their Microsoft Account. In fact, we must use our MS account if we are developers and need to capture benefits from our partner relationships, etc. Yet, everytime I log off Azure and log back in, it automatically logs in to the Org account which has no assets.

    Suggestion: Stop doing that

  15. Fix your login system

    I'm not sure why, but Microsoft requires me to have three different accounts. I'm required to use my 'Personal' business account to login into Azure. I'm actually able to login in about 50% of the time. Same with publishing from VS. Constant login issues. Usually the only way to login is to try doing it 50 times and hoping it just works once.

  16. Why do I have to sign in with a work or school account?

    I am currently a student using Dreamspark and still trying to figure out account access and it is annoying that it keeps demanding that I sign in with a Work or school account, when I need to use my Microsoft account. However my Microsoft account which I use for Dreamspark, keeps telling me that I do not have an account, and it is trying to connect me with AN OLD work account that is now DEAD.
    I wish I could figure out how to remove this old account, but it keeps coming back, I do not want to use a…

  17. Remove confusion with which Microsoft Account and work account has the subscription

    I am having a difficult time figuring out which e-mail address I log in with for the Azure portal and which Microsoft Account is connected to it and my MSDN Subscription benefits. When I log in, it seems like 3 different Azure Active Directory "domains" are connected to my MSDN Subscription, but I don't understand how they all got connected together.

    I thought I had set up 2 different MSDN benefits and 2 separate Azure benefit subscriptions with 2 different e-mail logins, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. I don't know what happened and it is very…

  18. Allow AD users to login using their mail or mailNickname instead of userPrincipalName

    Using the Microsoftonline.com login page when triggering a PromptBehavior of Auto or Always using the AcquireToken method in the ADAL library. It would be useful if users we have registered in our AD could use any email to login with. And not be forced to create a Microsoft or AD account.

  19. Fix Error AADSTS50020 when logged in user doesn't have permissions to selected Application.

    Currently if the logged in users doesnt exist in the Tenant Directory for a given application. The user is shown a very unhelpful page with the following:

    Sorry, but we’re having trouble signing you in.
    We received a bad request.

    The debug error is :
    AADSTS50020: User account 'some email address' from external identity provider 'https://sts.windows.net/someguid/&#39; is not supported for application 'https://someappurl'. The account needs to be added as an external user in the tenant. Please sign out and sign in again with an Azure Active Directory user account.

    Hey folks, thanks for the interest in this, and we have some good news to share. Configurable lockout is in development now (mostly done, actually) and we’re aiming for June or July public preview.

    For configurable password complexity, length, etc, we hear you. Longer passwords are in planning now, and we’re thinking about our approach to how we want to enable the other configurability features. I don’t have any more details to share on this for now, but we do have interest in building features.
