  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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/' 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.

  7. Merge office365 and live accounts that use the same email address

    I use both Azure/msdn and office 365
    I already had an msdn account mvdl@our-company.com ( Windows Live account) and our company recently migrated to Office 365 which resulted in a mvdl@our-company.com Office365 account.

    Wich is causing a lot of grieve when switching between asure web portal / msdn web portal / office 365 web portal

    Even when I have no portals open, I cant switch accounts. I need to explicity open the portal that I last logged in to. Log out, and then I can switch accounts.

    And having both office 365 portal and Azure portal open at the same…

    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…
