  1. Bring the web-sign-in feature to GA, it works for us

    We’re successfully testing Intune device enrollment for Windows 10 with our Shibboleth IdP federated tenant. We’re using cloud only enrollment manager accounts and applying a web-sign-in policy when enrolling the machines. The end user does the web-sign-in but then has the option to enroll in Windows Hello and use a PIN going forward so it can be a sort of bootstrap procedure for them.

  2. Add Device owner to Hybrid AAD joined Machines

    Joining machines to Hybrid AAD helps with Conditional Access polices etc. When a machine is Hybrid Joined it loses the owner of the machine. This is by designee .

    But for an administrator it is a pain to go through AD logs and identify who is using the machine or who is logged in.

    This is why i am requesting to add the feature to have machine owners added to Hybrid AAD devices on azure console.

  4. Pre-provision Autopilot devices

    Allow administrators to pre-provision Autopilot devices in AAD so that they do not have to allow users to join devices to AAD (aka personal devices).

  5. Azure AD Domain Join for AWS Windows 2016/2019 EC2 instances

    Would like to use "Azure AD Join" for AWS Windows 2016/2019 EC2 instances to allow RDP access with Authentication via Azure AD credentials. Security is in favor of approving the following if available in AWS.

    Similar, but different situations are described here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/howto-vm-sign-in-azure-ad-windows
    and
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/concept-azure-ad-join

    Note that "Hybrid Azure AD Joined" does not meet corporate security requirements.

  6. Problem with Azure AD Join USERPROFILE. Should be set to ASCII characters only

    This is such a triavial issue I'm amazed how it hasn't been addressed for years now.
    Here's the problem in more details:
    When a Windows 10 device is joined to Azure Active Directory, the logon process creates the user's folder in this location: c:\users (as might be expected, this becomes the %USERPROFILE% path). The folder name appears to be constructed based on the user's First name and Last name, as entered in the Azure Active Directory.
    However, when the user's first name or last name in the Azure Active Directory includes non-ASCII international characters (for ex. šđčćžáāķļ), these will be…

  7. Expand sign-in with AAD preview

    Please expand the sign-in with AAD preview to support more Windows OS's and other clouds. We want to leverage AAD sign-in to support Azure and AWS instances. We have mix of Windows server (2012R2 min) and Linux (CentOS/RHEL 6/7).

  8. Remote connection to VMs joined to Azure AD

    At a moment you can only establish remote connection to VMs joined to Azure AD from Windows 10 PCs that are Azure AD joined or hybrid Azure AD joined to the same directory as the VM. It would be great if we could connect from our PCs that are not Azure AD joined to the same directory as VM. For example PCs that are in a Workgroup or PCs that are joined to some other AD.

  10. Display a 2nd, customizable warning message when registering private device in AAD

    The current wording ("Make sure this is your organization") of the warning message when registering a private (non-company) device to AAD needs to be modified, or the ability to display an additional (tenant customizable) warning message needs to be introduced. We are having occasions where users are joining personal devices to the company AAD tenant without fully realizing the consequence of doing so. When clicking Join, they see the "Make sure this is your organization" message and feel confident that it is, and so continue. They fail to read the smaller text (or fail to understand the significance of the…

  11. Migrate User and Computer to Azure AD

    Microsoft needs to provide a command-line option or built-in feature that allows the ability to migrate existing AD user and computer objects to Azure AD.


    • Hybrid join does not stay AAD joined if you remove from AD.

    • Bulk enrollment only works for OOBE (new device0 and not existing devices.

    • USMT does not support AAD accounts, requires profile to be manually logged on first to create Windows Profile. There is no way to get the AAD user SID to try and pre-create profile for USMT.

    There either needs to be a tool or built-in mechanism to "switch" from AD to AAD…

  13. Re-enable bulk invite from Azure Portal (B2B guests

    The bulk invite (preview) functionality to invite multiple B2B guests was available on Azure Portal and was working fine. It has been disabled since 22nd Dec with no current deadline/timeline to re-enable it.

    When I checked with Microsoft Product team they asked me to raise this as an idea here and that they will re-enable if there was enough community support.

    Refer this for the functionality that I am referring to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/b2b/tutorial-bulk-invite

  14. Members of the "Guest inviter" role can invite guests, but unable to add First Name/Last Name

    Members of the "Guest inviter" role can invite guests, but unable to add First Name/Last Name.

    Logged with MS O365 Support 120012725000253, response: Wed 19/02/2020 14:43

    "The update from the product team is that the Guest inviter role will not be able to invite guest users successfully filling out the other details. He would need either ‘Global administrator’ or ‘User administrator’ role in order to do that."

  16. Allow vms with a long name to use Login with AAD credentials

    If you create a Windows VM with a name that is longer than 15 characters the Azure AD Join fails.

    The local name gets cut down to 15 characters but then it somehow cannot make a connection to the Azure AD.

    It should not matter how long the vm name in Azure is, the join should always work or there should be some kind of check which tells one to not use names longer than 15 characters when activating Login with AAD credentials.

  17. AAD Login to Windows automatically joining Intune

    After automatically joining AAD, need a way for those systems to also automatically join Intune. Maybe even by granting a specific Intune App access to the VM as admin or something like that.
    Don't want to auto enroll all, as this should only work for these Azure VMs.

  18. Do not remove the successfully HAAD Joined computer from Azure AD if the userCertificate attribute was deleted on prem (mode)

    when the userCertificate attribute is changed/Corrupt on prem (source of change unknown yet), the computer objects gets deleted from Azure AD due to current sync rules and logic. there should be no reason to depend on this attribute after the station was successfully registered. And since the computer is not aware of this sync change between AD and AAD its local state still tells the station its registered and no re-registration attempt is made. we can allways block registration by deleting the device from AAD or block the user. and WAM is Disabled to bypass. case 120021424002034 The point is…

  19. make the fallback to software key faster in case hardware TPM fails.

    during hardware/software updates sometimes the TPM got corrupted and the users are not able to access resources that depend on Azure AD PRT until Windows is able to perform automatic fallback to software key. Due nature of the fall back process (station reboot has to happen to reregister, and after that the user has to sign in again to get AAD PRT) there is a latency with getting AAD PRT and Cx helpdesk has to work with end users to address the issue faster than to wait for 1-2 days to self recover. and WAM is Disabled to bypass. case…

  20. Allow RDP access from a computer in a different AAD (Multi/Cross-Tenant Support)

    Currently the AAD access to an Azure VM only works if your client is connect via AAD to the same Azure directory/tenant.
    We support a multi-tenant environment which means my desktop/laptop is unlikely to be on the same directory that I am trying to authenticate against.

    There needs to be some added granularity to allow for this situation otherwise this facility is useless to us under a "service provider" role.
