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

    Lots of Japanese customers would like to use Azure AD B2C. But they can not decide to adopt B2C because we do not have Japan region as data residency location.

  2. Azure AD B2C Data Residency in Australia

    Although Azure AD B2C is available for use in Australia, there is not option to create a directiry for which the user data resides in Australia. We would like to be able to ensure that our Azure AD B2C user data remains in Australia.

  3. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.…

  7. AADB2C: include username in JWT claims

    AADB2C supports either email addresses or usernames for accounts. If a directory uses usernames, you don't get that username as a claim in the JWT. This means an extra trip to Azure must be made to retrieve the username. Please consider including the username in the JWT.

  8. Add hashed password migration to Azure AD B2C

    Currently, I can migrate user accounts from an existing database to Azure AD B2C. However, it only accepts unhashed passwords, which is completely useless for any modern system, which should ONLY be using hashed and salted passwords. What would actually make this feature useful is to include fields for hashed password, hash algorithm (any of several standard ones), salt and salt method (i.e., appended, prepended, etc).

  9. 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.

  11. Spring Security Support

    Storm Path is an example of an API/Service that provides all the same functionality as Azure AD B2C, and actually integrates with Spring Security very easily.

    https://stormpath.com/

    They provide code samples too:

    https://docs.stormpath.com/java/

    It would be fantastic, and ensure a much wider adoption market, if you were to create an open source project that provided the same easy integration and adoption.

  12. 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

  13. AADB2C: Password Expiration

    Unlike Azure AD, B2C does not allow you to set a password expiration policy. Please allow similar capability in B2C to set both a password expiry as well as the length prior to a notice being sent to the user before their password expires.

  14. 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…

  16. Pre-populate username field with value from the query string like old Sign-In Policy

    You provide policies for Sign-In, Sign-Up and Sign-In or Sign-Up. The "Sign-In" policies do not allow page customization because they are using an older (pre B2C) way of doing things. However, one advantage the Sign-In policy has is that I can add &username=myUsername and it pre-populates the Username field with this value.

    In our system, we already know the username before we send them to the "sign-up or sign-in" Policy screen, and we'd like to add the username to the query string so the value is already populated.

  18. Azure AD Applications - Needs

    - Allow applications in Azure AD to be organised into folders so business units who work in this space can 'claim' applications.
    - Provide the ability to rename applications or application instances once created.
    - Provide visbility of what user created an application.
    - Provide the ability to 'lock' applications from being accidently deleted.
    - Deletion of applications requires X global admins to approve, at the moment a rogue admin could destroy an SSO setup for an entire company in minutes...

    Thank you for your feedback, some of the suggestions are already available:

    - Ability to rename applications
    - Provide visibility of what users created an application: You can use audit activity reports: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-reporting-activity-audit-logs

    Regarding the other suggestions, I’ll update this once it’s a planned feature. In the meantime, keep the voting coming so we can prioritize this higher.

  19. Do you know if the connector can update an Employee's Username in Workday?

    Our client is planning on using email address as the Username in Workday which also drives the SSO. The issue is - Let's say John Doe is hired in Workday and gets assigned John.doe@xyz.com. the new hire flows across to Active Directory and AD says that email is already in use and it needs to be updated to John.Doe1@xyz.com . We are using the Azure connector where the Azure app is able to update the worker's work contact information. Not sure if the Azure app has the ability to update the Username attribute in Workday account.

  20. 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.
