  1. Remove the SharePoint prerequisite for MIM portal.

    The fact that MIM Portal runs on top of SharePoint just adds a lot of extra complexity and moving parts. If MIM Portal instead was just a simple IIS application it would become a lot easier to set up and maintain.

    • Date picker in MIM Portal

      A lot of customers are asking why there is no such thing like proper date picker in MIM Portal - in search, in user's form and so on. And even we can write the date in search, there is no way to include hours.

      • Allow extensibility of portal through the use of custom controls

        There are some business scenarios which currently cannot be built in the FIM portal due to the limited set of Uoc controls available, and their lack of customization. This leads to external tools needing to be made, fracturing the experience for FIM users. Allowing the Uoc base control to be made public and inheritable opens up scenarios for controls with extended validations, external lookups, code behind, and much more.

          • Modern end-user portal

            One of the main blockers to deploy MIM is lack of a modern end-user facing portal. One doesn't need to port all the functionalities to such a portal straight away and MPRs, Workflows etc can stay within an old portal for admins, but users should see responsive and simple interface (not based on SharePoint)

            • "Backport" the new sync engine features from AAD Connect to MIM

              There are several new and handy scope operations, functions & operators available in AAD Connect that are not available in MIM Sync. Would be very useful to have in MIM aswell, for example NOW, SWITCH, ISMEMBEROF etc.

              • Provide MIM Portal to authenticate by SAML or any other federation standard.

                Add SAML or WS-* support to MIM Portal to authenticate in a federated scenario and remove the account dependency from any local Active Directory.

                  • Support Group Managed Servcie Accounts (gMSA)

                    A big problem for customers once MIM is deployed is changing all the service accounts used by the solution. Supporting group managed service accounts would help lessen this customer pain.

                    • More control over FIMService MA

                      FIMService MA being treated as a special one (no transforms, MRE control etc)

                      In some cases we need more control on FIMService MA where we can do controls like any other MA. We have seen reverse joins also not working very well and in a DR scenario FIMService MA caused issues for us..

                      • FIM Portal Create RCDC's flexiblity (Allow Custom Events)

                        Allow Custom Events on Controls in RCDC so that it is possible to set some Checkboxes in the RCDC to true or false.
                        Example:
                        UocRadioControl with Option like SharedMailbox, RoomMailbox, EquipmentMailbox.

                        Based on that it should be possible to define which Attributes or groupings are visible.
                        This give more flexibility on creation RCDC's.

                        • Azure AD Connector

                          We need a supported connector for MIM to efficiently Read and Write data to Azure AD.

                          The use of Azure AD Connect complicates the architecture of solutions requiring on-premises data synchronization through MIM.

                          • Do not require database SysAdmin privilege for installation/upgrade of MIM

                            Requiring the highest level of privilege for installing and updating MIM is not seen as acceptable by Database Administrators as it causes security concerns, especially in an environment where databases use shared hardware. In the UK/EU and probably equivalents elsewhere, this is of particular concern for organisations that need to adhere to PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) or GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

                            The MIM installer should require the least privileges it needs to do it's job so that the database administrator can define a role that meets these requirements. Anything that truly needs to be done…

                                Extend current Hybrid-Identity functionality to allow for the synchronization to Azure AD Reporting of the details of the operations performed in MIM and not just a subset of the SSPR and group management operations. Ideally we would want to have the option to select what specific information to synchronize to Azure AD.

                                    The open-sourced MIMWAL activity library should simply be incorporated into the MIM Service to provide much needed functionality.

                                    • Allow MIM SP1 forms to be resized and provide larger inputs for text fields and boxes.

                                      With MIM SP1 and the support for modern browsers, the form UI is now a static size and controls are of a very small size compared to the previous version. Please allow for the form to be resized so that information can be displayed properly in the form or fields. We shouldn't need to be writing custom expressions in a small textbox field.

                                      • UocListView support for sorting

                                        Extending UocListView with an other Property like Sorting, to define a custom sort. It should support functionality like ascending and descending. This should be possible for String and DateTime attributes
