Azure Active Directory

Welcome to the Azure Active Directory suggestions and feedback site! We love hearing from you. If you have suggestions, please submit an idea or vote up an idea. We are monitoring the site actively.

Thank you for joining our community and helping improve Azure AD!

We have a new log in experience integrated with Azure AD, and we strongly recommend you log in with your Azure AD (Office 365) account. If your UserVoice account is the same email address as your Azure AD account, your previous activities will be automatically mapped to your Azure AD account.  You can read more here for details: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Azure-Active-Directory-Identity/Putting-customers-first-for-f...

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

    Hi,

    I wanted to give a quick update on this. We agree this makes a lot of sense and is useful in many different cases, so have added it to our backlog. I don’t have a date to share yet, but will post updates here. Thanks for the interest.

  4. RBAC for AAD

    The Azure teams have done an awesome job implementing RBAC. I would love to have this same functionality (granular permissions + custom roles) for AAD itself.
    Currently there's too many activities that only a global admin can do. RBAC would allow us to delegate appropriate activities without increasing our security attack surface.

  5. AADB2C: Force password reset

    Add the ability to force user's to reset password at next login. It would be ideal if this was available for both individual users as well as in bulk. This is necessary for situations such as credential leaks, etc.

    We have started the planning for this feature and hope to have a preview by the end of the calendar year. In the meantime, could you respond to aadb2cpreview@microsoft.com with the answers to the following questions:
    - In which scenarios do you plan to force the user to change his/her password?
    - What kind of information (if any) would you like to get back if the user goes through the reset flow?
    - Do you currently or plan to track which users have reset their password?

  6. Support Remote Desktop Web Client HTML5 on Azure AD App Proxy

    Microsoft doesn't support the Azure AD Application Proxy on RD WebClient (HTML5). Like this MFA and Condintional Access would be possible.
    Another benefit is that HTML5 works on all Webbrowsers without downloading software.

  7. 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…

  8. Phone number sign-up

    We are interested in enabling this scenario and are looking for more data.
    - Would you want to be able to use this in conjunction with email or would you only be interested in one way to sign up accounts at a time?
    - Would you like to be able to create the account without needing an email at all?

  9. Allow different login branding customizations per-domain

    We have a number of subdomains in our tenant which are used for various purposes - clients, partners, staff etc.
    It would be great to be able to customise the login branding customisation settings on a per-domain basis rather than globally across the tenant.

  10. Fix Error AADSTS50020 when logged in user doesn't have permissions to selected Application.

    Currently if the logged in users doesnt exist in the Tenant Directory for a given application. The user is shown a very unhelpful page with the following:

    Sorry, but we’re having trouble signing you in.
    We received a bad request.

    The debug error is :
    AADSTS50020: User account 'some email address' from external identity provider 'https://sts.windows.net/someguid/'; is not supported for application 'https://someappurl'. The account needs to be added as an external user in the tenant. Please sign out and sign in again with an Azure Active Directory user account.

  11. Make https://passwordreset.microsoftonline.com responsive design or app for password reset

    It would be nice, if the passwordreset.microsoftonline.com looked great on a mobile device as well as on a PC. It isn't responsive and looks weird on a phone. You have to pinch to see the text and textboxes on the page.

    Alternative Microsoft should consider integrating "Password Reset" / "Lockout" functionality in a new app or the existing Azure Authenticator app. This will notify the user about account lockout and also provide a way for the user to do a quick password reset a device. Of cause the user will need to answer a couple of questions, enter a pin…

  12. "Change password" policy

    Add a new Azure AD B2C policy that allows a signed-in user to change his or her password. Not the same as password reset.

    We are in the process of planning this feature and hope to have a preview available by the end of november. In the meantime, could you please respond to aadb2cpreview@microsoft.com with your responses to the following questions:

    - If you had a “password change” policy, what kind of information would you like to get back once the policy has been executed?
    - Would you prefer to have a policy that forces you to sign in first, and then asks you to change the password, or one that let’s you do it all on the same page?
    - Would you want an email to get sent out to the user whenever the password is changed?

  13. phone factor

  14. Allow more customization of the myapps.microsoft.com portal.

    Would be great if I could forward a subdomain to our myapps.microsoft.com portal. Instead of giving users a the microsoft.com URL, I want to give them one.theblaze.com.

    Second, would be great if there was a newsfeed widget at the top of the portal that could show an RSS feed of company news.

    Thanks so much for the feedback! Customizations of the My Apps portal for both end users and admins are on our roadmap. This includes providing the ability to re-arrange and group apps and as well as using a customizable domain.

    We are also looking to see if we can enable embedding other components like widgets. We’re still in process of validating options for this.
    Please keep sharing your feedback and ideas around this!

  15. Add IPv6 addresses/ranges in named locations

    Hi,

    we set up Named Locations in Azure ID to "avoid" risky Azure AD logins.

    I added all our IPv4 public IPs/ranges but could not enter the IPv6 IPs/ranges. I got in touch with the Azure support and they said it is not possible yet.

    As we also use IPv6 surf IPs, could you enable the feature to add IPv6 IPs/ranges as well?

    Kind regards
    André

  16. Allow User Account Administrator to enable MFA for users, not require global admin

    A best practice is to limit the number of global admins, yet a global admin is required to enable MFA for users. This should be allowed in the User Account Administrator role to enable MFA for users.

    We aren’t planning to add the ability to enable MFA per-user to the Account Administrator, but we do have planned a limited admin role that will be able to perform that function, along with other MFA related settings. If you’ve implemented MFA through Conditional Access policy instead of the per-user enablement, you can use the Conditional Access Policy admin to control who has to do MFA.

  17. Ability to update Named Locations using PowerShell

    We have around 200 locations that use dynamic IP addresses that change frequently. We have the ability to pull the public IP addresses via REST API/PowerShell, but there is currently no way to update the Named Locations list programmatically. Without PowerShell, we are forced to manually dump the list to a CSV and upload the new file.

    We would like to have the ability to add, remove, update Named Locations and entries in the IP Ranges of a Named Location.

    We recently added deny capability to Azure’s RBAC system, in the form of deny assignments that can be set by the system only. The first Azure feature to use deny is BluePrint. We intend to add a configurable deny capability in the future, but have not yet announced any details.

    Cheers,

  19. MFA Remembering Device

    Have the configuration option to remember a device for MFA, like with non-B2C tenants, instead of requiring MFA each time a user logs in.

  20. Add AAD B2C to CSP

    B2C is currently available on the CSP pricing calculator, it can be found in the CSP portal, but it is not actually activated for CSP. Why isn't it available yet, and how do I get on the list to be an early user?
