  1. Add support for nested groups in Azure AD (app access and provisioning, group-based licensing)

    A lot of organizations use nested groups in on-premise AD. Syncronizing these groups to Azure AD have no value today. But the group itself have value on-premise
    Creating new group in AD with only users and then synchronize it to Azure AD creates extra administration for administrators and confusion for end-users.

    Dynamic Groups in Azure AD as of today don’t have support for “Member Of” or similar hence don’t solve the problem.

    Adding nested groups to Azure AD would add a lot of value to Azure AD.

    We’re currently evaluating an option that will provide the functionality offered by nested groups, but removes the complexity nested groups adds. We appreciate your patience on this ask and want to ensure we deliver a solution that benefits all of our customers. Below are use cases that we’d like for you to stack rank, with #1 being priority for you. We thank you for the continued comments and feedback.

    Use case A: nested group in a cloud security group inherits apps assignment
    Use case B: nested group in a cloud security group inherits license assignment
    Use case C: nesting groups under Office 365 groups

  2. Get user membership groups in the claims with AD B2C

    As it's possible in the standard AD by changing the API application manifest option "groupMembershipClaims" to "SecurityGroup", is it possible to return user membership group in the claims with AD B2C?

    Now, we can have only the default and custom attributes by adding a signin policy, but it's impossible to get user membership groups.

    We definitely recognize the popularity of this feature, and we discuss it constantly during the planning phases. However there are certain technical limitations in the system that add a large amount of development cost. Because of the cost and the fact that there is a workaround available, other features get prioritized over this one.

    That being said, please keep voting for it. The popularity of the feature does help bring it up and makes us reconsider every time.

    Apologies for the delay.

    Old message:
    We’re doing some research both on the specifics of this ask as well as what it would take to support this.
    Is the ask here to do the same thing that regular Azure AD does (see: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2014/12/18/azure-active-directory-now-with-group-claims-and-application-roles/) or is are there different requirements around this for Azure AD B2C?

  3. Allow the User Admin role to Enable/Disable MFA for users

    Managing MFA settings for users seems to fit the scope of the User Admin role. I don't think this activity should require Global Admin access.

    We have released the Authentication administrator and Privileged authentication administrator roles that can manage the authentication methods of the user. If you are using Azure AD Premium, consider enforcing MFA on the user using Conditional Access. We are continuing to work on other roles that will let you manage other MFA settings.

  4. Merge office365 and live accounts that use the same email address

    I use both Azure/msdn and office 365
    I already had an msdn account mvdl@our-company.com ( Windows Live account) and our company recently migrated to Office 365 which resulted in a mvdl@our-company.com Office365 account.

    Wich is causing a lot of grieve when switching between asure web portal / msdn web portal / office 365 web portal

    Even when I have no portals open, I cant switch accounts. I need to explicity open the portal that I last logged in to. Log out, and then I can switch accounts.

    And having both office 365 portal and Azure portal open at the same…

    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…

  5. Dynamic Groups: Member of group

    Would be good to have the possibility to use membership in other groups as a condition in a dynamic group membership rule.

    Example:
    (user.objectId -memberOf group.objectId)
    (user.objectId -notMemberOf group.ObjectId)

    Use case 1 - Group Based Licensing.
    If the user is member of a group that gives them a E5 license, don't let them be member of a group that gives them E3.

    Use case 2 - Exceptions
    All users should have a MDM policy applied, accept those of a specific group.

  6. Fully customizable verification emails

    Currently, Azure AD B2C sends verification codes via emails to end users during sign-up and password reset flows. These emails have limited customization. Add support for full customization of the email body & content.

  8. Add MFA support to Secure the Windows 10 logon

    Creating a way to secure the Logon to a Windows 10 workstation with MFA would then remove much of the complexity required to secure all the applications installed upon it (such as DA etc).

    This would need to have the ability to store offline logins somehow which is possible with RSA SecurID.

    It would and the final touches to a really great solution.

    We’ve recently picked up this work again and apologize for the lack of updates.

    The approach we previously pursued did not work well and we’re re-pivoting to a different solution that will enable custom domains to be easier to set up and manage.

    We hope to have this ready for a public preview late-2020 or early-2021.

  10. PowerShell and Graph API support for managing Multi-Factor Authentication

    Currently, the only available option to automate Azure MFA administration appears to be the MSOnline PowerShell module, released back in 2015.

    The MSOnline module's Set-MsolUser and Get-MsolUser cmdlets allow administrators to enable and disable MFA on a user object using PowerShell scripts.

    Alas, the MSOnline module itself does not support MFA when connecting to Azure AD. Administrators hoping to make use of the MSOnline module cannot have MFA enabled on their accounts. In short, for an admin to manage MFA with PowerShell, the admin's account can't be protected by MFA.

    The new AzureAD and AzureADPreview PowerShell modules support connecting to…

    We’re really pleased to let you know that we’ve released the first authentication method APIs to public preview:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/graph/api/resources/authenticationmethods-overview

    So far there are APIs for managing phone numbers and password resets. When phone numbers are set with the API, the user can use that number for MFA and SSPR (as allowed by your tenant’s policy).

    The team is hard at work at building out APIs for all of the other authentication methods, and we’ll update the response here as they’re released.

  11. Set an AzureAD account to expire on a specified date

    Just like in active directory allow accounts to be set to expire on a specified date. Our company policy is to set network accounts for non-employees (consultants, contractors, temporary employees, interns) to expire at a certain interval after they are created. We want the same functionality within Office 365.

  12. Automate Seamless SSO Kerberos decryption key rollover AZUREADSSOACC

    Currently to automate the Kerberos SSO decryption key rollover for AZUREADSSOACC , we would need to store domain admin and tenant global admin credentials in a script or scheduled task.

    This is obviously not ideal. We currently having to perform the rollover task manually each month.

    Please look at how this process could be improved for automation.

    Hi everyone,
    Thanks for your interest on this feature. This capability is still in the pipeline. The initial estimate was obviously off and we are looking at a new timeline. We are aware of the benefit of having this rollover made automatic and the interest you have on the feature, and that’s how we are looking at it while prioritizing it against other capabilities requests.
    Thanks for your patience!

  13. Remove requirement for onprem Exchange when using DirSync

    as per : http://tinyurl.com/kqgjvqx

    Currently for a small business who want password sync, but make the move to 365. they have to keep Exchange running on premise simply to be able to edit user attributes related to Exchange. - an active directory DLL, standalone app or simply support in the 365 portal would solve this for so many customers.

  14. AzureAD Role Delegation to Groups

    Currently in AzureAD msolroles can only be assigned to users and servicePrincipals using the add-msolRoleMember cmdlet. Groups cannot be a msol-roleMember - although the add-msolroleMember cmdlets' RoleMemberType Parameter can be set to Group. But we always get an exception which says that this value is invalid....
    Usually we delegate access to resources using ActiveDirectory Groups instead of users, which makes the Management much easier. To achieve a Role Delegation to Groups we have to deploy a Powershell that synchronizes Group-Members with Role-Members of a specific role. This is a valid Workaround but a nasty one compared to a direct delegation…

  15. Allow Conversion of AD Synced Accounts to "In Cloud Only"

    Up until recently, we were able to convert a user which was AD Synced to a cloud account by moving it to an OU in AD which was not synced.
    After the next sync, Office 365 would move it into the deleted folder. If you recover it, it goes into a cloud account. As of a few weeks ago, Microsoft disabled this.

    Looking at countless threads around the internet, and speaking with representatives from Microsoft Office 365 support, everyone is frustrated with this change, and wants it changed back to the way it was.

    We are aware of the requirement to be able to convert a synced user to cloud only and are designing that feature, but we have no timelines to share right now.
    We reverted the change that would block the “hack” to delete and restore a user to change a user to “Cloud Only”.

  16. Ability to trigger a dynamic group update

    It would be wonderful if there was a way to trigger a re-sync of dynamic groups after changes are made. Right now some changes take over 24 hours to show and when experimenting with new dynamic rules it makes it difficult to see results. The trigger could be something like the Reset and Resync box in Enterprise Apps provisioning or just a Powershell applet that can be run.

    Our feature team is looking into options for addressing this scenario, but we do not yet have any timelines to share. For now as a workaround, you can manually trigger the reprocessing by updating the membership rule to add a whitespace at the end. We’ve also added the ability to check the membership processing status, to keep track of the status and know if processing is complete.

  17. Allow for customized error messages in Azure AD Conditional Access policies

    Allow for an administrator to create customized error messages to replace the generic AAD conditional access "you do not meet the criteria." For example, if I have a conditional access policy that blocks access for Windows devices based on a specific criteria, I could display a custom error message that would offer links to support sites, or IT support #. In addition, allow for multiple custom error messages to be defined, and linked to specific policies that block access. For example, we could display a different error message on PC, iOS, or Android devices that are blocked via a conditional…
