  1. Update UserType from portal

    Be able to see and change the userType from the portal.
    (This is only available in Powershell : example: change from Guest -> member, in order to see the directory as an external user.)

    Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName xxxhotmail.com#EXT#@xxxhotmail.onmicrosoft.com -UserType Member

    Updating the status to indicate that this is a valid suggestion and in our backlog for the future. Please keep the comments/votes coming, knowing more about how you intend to use this helps us prioritize and design better features.

  2. B2B Guest User Expiration

    Looking for the functionality where you can schedule Azure B2B users to exist in your tenant for a predetermined period of time. This would operate similarly to the O365 Groups expiration functionality that exist today. Additionally, managers would be allowed to extend these periods of time and automated reminders would be sent to the manager of these users.

    We do have some capabilities in this space by using either Access Reviews (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/governance/manage-guest-access-with-access-reviews) or the newly-released-to-preview Entitlement Management feature (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/governance/entitlement-management-overview).

    If neither of those fulfill your requirements, please add a comment with your scenario for the feature to help us prioritize and design it better.

  3. remove b2b user when host account is removed

    We use Azure B2B extensively. However where B2B users have been into our directory and the user has left the third party organisation and thus had their account removed does not clean up the guest account records in our directory.

    Over time this leaves thousands of 'orphaned' guest accounts in our directory, with no ability for our administrators to identify which accounts are orphaned. and thus numbers of guest users in our our directory expands over time infinity

    Azure AD should automatically in the in the event of a user object being removed from the third party directory remove the…

    This is in our backlog, but votes and comments about how you would expect this to work are very helpful to our planning/designing the feature so please keep them coming.

    Also, for some scenarios in this space Access Reviews (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/governance/manage-guest-access-with-access-reviews) can be a good way of removing users who no longer need access, including those who don’t have accounts anymore. (Thanks Shawn for pointing that out for everyone!)

  4. Allow Azure AD to Azure AD Trust

    Add the ability to trust another 365 tenant like exists with on prem active directory. The scenario is a company that has an establish 365 acquires another company that has a 365 environment. In a on prem scenario a domain trust would be put in place, however federation and external user access is the only options. This capability needs to be in place for Azure AD to trust another Azure AD.

    We’re working on a few features in this space that will likely help address this scenario but don’t have an ETA yet to share. Thanks to the folks who have added additional details of what they’re looking for, and if you have more scenarios for how this capability could help you please do add them as comments.

    Thanks,

  5. Need some way to deal with: "AADB2B_0001 : We cannot create a self-service Azure AD account for you because the directory is federated"

    Not all B2B invites can be redeemed successfully. Failures happen for reasons that are out of the inviters control (leading to an inability to fix the problem) and are not predictable (leading to poor user experience).

    I suspect this problem happens most frequently when a partner organization bungles taking ownership of their tenant. MSFT needs to make it much harder for people to render their production tenant in such a disfunctional state.

  6. Who created guest user

    Hi,

    Currently i have no possibility to see who created a guest-user, except going through the audit-logs.
    Maybe the User inviting the guest could be automatically set to the "Manager" attribute(which is currently not available for guest users).

    Then the monthly review of created guest-accounts would be much easier to handle, as you could ask the inviter/manager if still needed.

    This is good feedback and is in our backlog but not currently under development. While we work on prioritizing/designing the feature, it’s helpful to hear from you how you would use this information in your scenarios. Please let us know by adding comments here.

    Thanks,

  7. Bring through external user profile fields when using B2B

    Currently, when you invite someone from another AzureAD, using the B2B process, only their DisplayName and EmailAddress comes through (both of which are actually provided in the B2B CSV file).

    It would be very useful if more profile information could be retrieved, possibly with the user's authorisation.

    In particular, details like Firstname, Lastname and Country, would be a useful start, but potentially more profile fields (address, phone numbers, title, etc) would be ideal.

  8. Can i use Azure AD B2B collaboration together with Azure AD B2C within one tenant?

    For external customers we will use Azure AD B2B to login in and for external users (from custom domains i.e. Hotmail.com, Outlook.com) we would like to use Azure AD B2C to log on.

    So, one tenant with Azure AD B2B extension and Azure B2C extension coexisting.

  9. Allow B2B Guest users to authenticate on Windows 10 Azure AD joined Devices

    Allow B2B collaboration users (Guest users who signs in with an account that's managed by another Azure AD directory) login into Azure AD Windows 10 joined devices.

    Use case: Collaboration between an educational institution and a public library. Adding student Azure AD (AAD) accounts from the educational institution as AAD Guest accounts in the public library AAD tenant would allow students to use their educational institution AAD credentials to login into the public library Windows 10 AAD joined devices.

  10. Azure AD B2B better support for users who don't know their organisation has O365

    We invite quite a lot of external guests into our SPOnline tenant. Originally via the (old Azure portal) bulk add (CSV) B2B process, but more recently via the (new Azure portal) invite guest user B2B/B2C process.

    We're getting more and more B2B users that fit into one or more of the following:


    1. Don't know their organisation has O365

    2. Don't know their O365 login (it's not always their email address)

    3. Their organisation/domain is registered for O365, but they don't have a license.

    4. Have O365, but aren't syncing their AD with AzureAD.

    5. Aren't able to get their IT to give them O365…

    We’ve made several improvements in this area to support users who don’t have O365 or who are using email addresses that differ from their O365 login information (such as supporting proxy addresses, direct federation support, and email one-time passcodes), but we know there’s more work to do in this space. Please let us know what other scenarios are causing you and your guests the most pain so we can use that information to triage and prioritize future investments.

  11. customize B2B signup process

    When working with partners it is critical to have customized and company specific branding and experience.

  12. B2B Scenario - the B2B Guest User should use the MFA or their autheticating tenant

    In a B2B scenario, I share information on ODfB or SPO with external users from another tenant and require MFA ot access this information.
    The B2B user would need to enroll into the MFA for my tenant, even though he already is setup to use MFA in his tenant. This would result in multiple Authenticator accounts for the same orignal Azure Account.
    I would expect the Service hosting Azure AD to accept the MFA of the users home tenant.

  13. I want to restrict users of my tenants from being invited from other tenants.

    I want to restrict users of my tenants from being invited from other tenants.

    Now the administrator can not see where users of their tenants are accessing.

    Since there is a security problem, I would like to have the ability to control the tenants that users will be invited as guest users.

  14. Allow all and future users from guest tenant to automatically be added as guest users.

    Allow all and future users from guest tenant to automatically be added as guest users without invitation email. This would mimic the classic AD trust.

  16. Make B2B guest accounts less sensitive to changes in the source AAD/MS account

    I have a customer that uses B2B for any partner collaboration they do within their corporate environment.

    There were partners that went through the following scenario's:
    - They moved their AAD users to another AAD tenant due to a reorganization
    - They changed company name and had a new UPN / SignIn

    In both cases the B2B account broke down. When the user tries to login they get the error: Sorry, but we’re having trouble with signing you in.

    AADSTS50177: User account '' from identity provider 'https://sts.windows.net//' does not exist in tenant '' and cannot access

  17. Mail Enabled External Users - Allow UserType=Member to be Mail Enabled - Allow Inviter to Control Mail Enable/ShowInAddressList on invite

    Consider the following scenario. You have a sister company or other company with their own AzureAD tenant, for which you want your users to be able to collaborate. You invite those users to your AzureAD tenant. Depending on how you do so, those external users may be Users or may be Mail Enabled Users.

    These External Users may now collaborate with your users using SharePoint or other AzureAD connected business apps, but if you're users are regularly collaborating with these external users, wouldn't it be great if you could make it easy for your users to find them in the…

  18. Permit OTP for users who do have a corresponding Azure AD account

    We sometimes encounter situations where a user may actually have an existing Azure AD account (in another tenant) or and MSA - but we want to invite them as an OTP user.

    The reason for this - using the existing AAD account as an example - is that this may be an account that is the product of some abandoned POC that this other org did. And as a result, the user does not know the password and SSPR may not be enabled. The result is that the user is unable to redeem a non-OTP invite.

    For best flexibility, maybe…

  19. Azure Active Directory, Guest User invite. Allow Group/Distribution lists

    Azure Active Directory, Guest User invite. Allow Group/Distribution lists.

    You can not add a guest user email address if its a distribution list. You have to use a "user" email address, ticket REG:117081816209241. This is would be useful to invite clients to manage certain objects (our example is keyvaults). People come and go and change positions. So using a distro list makes sense here. Using a "shared" mailbox is possible but why extra overhead of an additional mailbox and license.

  20. Set a due date for guest users

    Currently there are a lot of unneeded guest users in Azure AD.
    So I want to set a due date for guest users.

    For instance, Guest users don't sign in for 90 days, it is deleted or blocked automatically.
