How can we improve Azure Active Directory?

Update UserType from portal

Be able to see and change the userType from the portal.
(This is only available in Powershell : example: change from Guest -> member, in order to see the directory as an external user.)

Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName xxxhotmail.com#EXT#@xxxhotmail.onmicrosoft.com -UserType Member

        I personally search many online platforms for Microsoft exams preparation, but they were unable to satisfy me. In the end, I found most authentic and valuable Microsoft AZ-101 training material from DumpsForsure with relevant Microsoft AZ-101 exam questions. They satisfied me with their Microsoft AZ-101 dumps and I am 100% they satisfied you too with their most updated Microsoft AZ-101 training material.

        The way we want to use this is that we have Microsoft consulting in doing some work for us. We have provisioned the consultants as guest users but certain Azure DevOps (formerly VSTS) functions don't work as well, so we want to promote certain guests to member status. Currently we have to do this with PowerShell.

        Hi Elisabeth,

        Back in the day's (this is open since Q1 2016 already) it was impossible to grant rights to users not being a member of your directory, therefore you had to change the membership before you would be able to grant them anything.

        Today the Guest-user logics changed in the way that you are not able to add a guest anymore, the guest is supposed to enroll himself. Which makes things more complex if you are enrolling people in multiple directories.

        Use case today would be to be able to add a guest user without the guest needed to get himself enrolled in the application. (CFR: resent invitation)

        The old portal allowed the addition of an account "from another Azure AD tenant which I manage". These accounts are set to "member" but show the "#EXT#" UPN for external user.

        It does not appear possible to add external accounts as "member" in the new portal.

        Looking for a clear definition between Guest and (#EXT#) Member to understand if/when/where this will be an issue.

        so what the heck? I have invited a person. I've made them global admin since they will eventually run this az subscription. But they still display as "guest." Changing the user type is disabled textbox. Ok Azure you win again - I give up .. so how do I change them from "guest" to "member"?

        Don't make the user as Global Admin. Instead assign as Limited Admin with directory role as Guestinviter. This should work

        I don't get this.. currently UserType for a User I want to be an all powerful administrator, is 'Guest'. However, I was able to give the user a directory role of "Global administrator". How can my user be a global administrator but still be a guest?
        Are these 2 separate things? Either way, it's really not clear from the portal. For instance, I can create users, groups, list them, etc. But when trying to list/choose the users in a RBAC pane, users don't show up.
