  1. group naming policy using extension attributes

    Please implement additional functionality to allow the use of Extension Attributes as part of a Group Naming Policy. This is required as the Department name is too large and many organisations have a shortened department code which they apply via an Extension Attribute. Using a long department name in a Group Naming POlicy creates names that are too long to be useful, but using a shortened department code plus group name means that the group can be easily identified and attributed to a department without cluttering the name space.

    e.g. Information and Communication Technology has a short code of ICT…

  2. Azure AD proxy Connector gateway Timeout

    As per Azure AD guideline, Only "Default" and "Long" Application time out value can be assigned to Azure application. Default = 85 seconds and Long = 180 Minutes. But i have few application which takes more than 3 minutes to respond on few UI actions. I am wondering, if we can have a way to override the proxy connector application time out settings. We may consider providing a way in Proxy Connector window service installed on server to increase Backend application timeout.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback.

    The timeout limit was defined due to two main motivations 1. Security and service SLA 2. The nature of network products and user productivity.

    In terms of security, App Proxy is a multi-tenant service and in today’s time and the high load we’re experiencing on our system, we have a limited ability to allow connections to be open for such a long time. Allowing such timeouts will widen our attack surface significantly and reliability of our service.

    In terms of productivity, we are dealing with a multi- hop network bound service (traffic from the user browser, to our service, to a connector and to the app). In such an environment there may be impact to parts of the system by adding in this longer timeout. When there is no activity on the wire of a network service it is questionable if the connection is…

  4. 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.

  5. 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!)

  6. Custom error messages per SaaS App and tenant-wide also

    It would be really awesome, if Microsoft would provide developers with an option to provide custom error messages per Azure AD SaaS Apps and Global Admin to define some tenant-wide custom error messages as well. The error messages provided from Microsoft is not especially user-friendly or customer specific yet. This creates some confusions among internal and B2B users.

    I hope this would be taken into considerations like the Azure Conditional Access custom error messages.

    We don’t plan to provide the capability to customize the error message for now. But, we have been working on making the error messages more actionable.

    If you have any suggestions for improving an specific error message. Please create another post and the team will improve it.

  7. Add Japan region to data residency location of Azure AD B2C

  9. Enable support for dynamic mail-enabled security groups

    Dynamic security groups are great, mail-enabled groups are great too wouldn't it be great to have both. We have a requirement to create security groups (or distribution groups) based on employee attributes (i.e. Active Full-time, Active Parttime, etc...). These attributes live in Azure AD but aren't accessible in Exchange Online so I cannot create a dynamic distribution group. I am able to create a mail-enabled security group but the membership cannot be dynamic. And any dynamic group I create can't be mail-enabled unless it's a unified group but for the purposes we need the groups for Unified groups aren't appropriate.…

  11. IDP-Initiated SAML flow option for all gallery applications

    Gallery integration for some SaaS applications (such as ServiceNow) use SP-Initiated sign-in flows. This makes ADFS -> Azure AD "migrations" for customers difficult as there is no way to validate the user experience without making Azure AD the default SSO provider. Additionally, some customers rely on just-in-time SAML provisioning, which is seamless with IDP-Initiated flow.

  12. Support logout and single logout with SAML 2.0 claims provider

    Support for logout and single logout with SAML 2.0 IdP configured as claims provider on B2C.

    The logout and single logout os both requested in some customer cases and in relation to the Danish governments IdP called "NemLog-in". In relation to the Danish governments IdP it is a requirement to support logout and single logout to connect to the central federation.

  15. All Powershell/BASH/script Azure AD join

    For converting BOYD to Azure AD in the field w/o user intervention, we need a way for elevated accounts to be able to perform an Azure AD join of devices via script.... come on, this is the basics...

    Think of it as MDM self-enrollment... if not that, then give us a one-click way for users to self-enroll the device.

    Thanks for the feedback on this. There are several ways to do Azure AD join (OOBE, bulk enrollment and Autopilot) which provide a richer experience to join devices to Azure AD. We’re continuously working to enhance those, so currently this is unplanned for the near future. Please continue to vote to help us prioritize

  16. B2C Support for client credential flow.

    To enable APIs to use authentication from another application with separate security credentials (clientId+secret). Needed for APIs to make graph calls.

    (This is not the same as on-behalf-of flow, which represents the ability to exchange an access token intended for one audience for an access token intended for a different audience)

    Hi all, unfortunately we don’t have plans to share out a public roadmap. This is constantly changing as we’re listening to customer requests. We will continue to update feedback.azure items as they come up so feel free to suggest anything you are curious about.

  18. Conditional SAML Token Attributes

    We need the ability to optional pass SAML token attributes based on a predefined condition. In our scenario we'd like to pass a join attribute only if both strings aren't empty.

  19. Avoid verification code emails when the user is not registered

    Azure B2C is gives a false impression that the user is in the directory when they try to reset their password.

    Following is steps in reset password:
    1) User clicks the Reset Password link
    2) B2C presents a page with “Email Address” field and says “Verification is necessary. Please click Send button.”
    3) User enters his email address and clicks “Send Verification Code”
    4) B2C sends the verification code this that email address (Even if no user is associated with that email address. This is where the user thinks he is registered with the system)
    5) Now the user enters…

  20. 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.
