  1. More logging, text files, historical data on AZ AD Sync

    Based on a recent problem we had, regarding AD Synch, we´ve noticed that there are no log files being generated locally and it´s very hard to find and keep track on what has happened during the syncs.

    We need more historical information, texte based, searchable, etc

  2. Windows Server AD couldn't match Azure AD user

    Yesterday I tried to have on-premises AD take over my Azure AD user, by create a same user on local AD, use the same UserPrincipalName and ProxyAddress, and it worked.
    Today, I tried this on a brand new Windows Server, it failed several times. I got the email saying: The object has been updated in your Azure Active Directory, but with some modified properties, because the following attributes are associated with another object..
    I want to know why is that happened, and I want it's working.. Thanks in advance.

  3. Users flagged for risk azure - it would be great to know how the ordering is done

    Currently its unclear why certain users are at top with 1 or 2 risk alerts but someone is 9th or 20th with many alerts

  4. Make error messages more meaningful. A guest AD user was preventing domain deletion, however Azure portal listed enterprise app as the prblm

    Also the Tier2 tech was making suggestions that suggested he simply may be reading from a list of solutions rather than reading error messages and analyzing the issue at hand.

  6. Membership Request notification and response from MyApps portal

    There are a lot of great features for the MyApps portal for Group management detailed here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/user-help/my-apps-portal-end-user-groups

    There is one glaring thing missing though, no way to be notified/respond to a group membership request. Almost the entire workflow is there for Group self-service and self-management, but when a user requests access to a group all the Owner gets is an email. It doesn't have a link to approve or even see more details. It would be great if the portal had notifications for them to respond, a single place to manage all requests.

  8. Show at the portal the quota that is being used by the tenant

    Please add at the portal the quota that is being used by the tenant to be able to request to Microsoft to increase the limit prior to have affectation and impact on the sync, b2b invites, app creations etc.

    Current limit is 1 million, and when reach we will need to create a ticket with MS to increase the limit.

    There's no way to know the value of the total currently in use.

    The advice from MS was to run a:

    Azure PS
    (Get-AzureADUser -All $true).Count
    (Get-AzureADGroup -All $true).Count
    (Get-AzureADContact -All $true).Count
    (Get-AzureADDevice -All $true).Count
    MSOL PS
    (Get-MsolUser -All -ReturnDeletedUsers).Count

  9. Consider providing Group settings to be accessed when creating a group in Active Directory

    When creating a group in AD the settings to deliver messages to a users inbox are turned off. When a group is created in the Office 365 Admin portal these setting seem to default to On. It would be helpful to have access to these settings in AD. This would facilitate creating a group with the proper settings while allowing users to recognize that there are setting that need to be considered for a new group.

  10. Add authentication logging for Azure Active Directory Domain Service

    Currently if I want to gain additional insight on why a user may be unable to login to our AADDS we have to file a support ticket.

    We are able to manage our AADDS with the classic AD management tools - a similar experience would be ideal for log review. Although we would still be happy to have access through the Azure portal as well.

  11. Get rid of all the security that will ultimately keep the computer owners out.

    Give the user the option to select security, not force it on them with complexity that will ultimately lock them out.

  12. Provide the ability to remove disabled subscriptions.

    If you have a subscription that entered disabled state, Let's say it was a sponsorship provided by Microsoft itself for training purposes, once it is disabled at the current moment you have to live with it forever. There is no way of removing it from your AAD directory. You have to filter it out so that you do not see it when browsing resources. That is dumb. We should be able to say we do not need this anymore, so remove it delete it whatever. "Hiding it" is not the right answer.

  14. Allow Custom Domains to have service principals in Azure AD

    Currently, if I want to use my own certificate for a custom domain in Azure CDN, I have to grant Azure CDN access to my KeyVault. That means anyone in the organization can potentially set up a custom domain using my KeyVault certificate. Instead, move the level of access policy down to the custom domain so that I can grant a specific custom domain access to the KeyVault and limit access that way.

  15. Synchronizing Managed Service Accounts from OnPremise to Azure ActiveDirectory

    I wish there is a way to synchronize managed service accounts(MSA) from onpremise to Azure Active Directory, There are many third party applications where we are using the MSA's auth for the apps on-premise . Now we have needs to connect to Azure SQL Database and they can't connect it using the existing auth. I think currently there is no way to sync the MSA's from onpremise to Azure Active Directory.

  16. Please expose non interactive logins logs to customers

    We look to setup alerts for security events. AAD Risk event "Impossible Login" though consumes non interactive login events that are not visible to customers so its not possible to create an event.

    If there are two interactive login's and the second deemed a risk event because of impossible travel we can create an event looking for the risk field in the sign-in logs but if the second event is a none interactive login you can't create an alert, we can't see this event.

  17. exo_evo_migration@support.microsoft.com showing up in audit logs creating cloud accounts

    exo_evo_migration@support.microsoft.com showing up in audit logs creating cloud accounts

    This is a known background service syncing the O365 and Azure AD but does not show the initial actor in the Azure Logs only the exo_evo_migration@support.microsoft.com which requires searching the EXO logs to find the actor who initiated the action.

    Can the actor be added to the Azure event log details without having to search the O365 logs.

  18. Provide ability to unlink Azure from Office 365

    My company has an Office365 subscription and we use the AD to manage internal staff roles, system access, etc. We also have entirely separate external data centres running systems and services for external customers and financial partners. We are now engaging in a migration exercise to move our data centres to the cloud. I created an Azure account using my company email address (naturally), and it automatically pulled in all settings and staff and who knows what else from our Office365 AD. This has already caused many issues in just a few days. Through multiple calls and emails with MS…
