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.
We plan to start work on this in the next 6 months. Please note we don’t have timing on when it would be available for customers.

This was an unexpected & unpleasant surprise I found when setting up a B2C Tenant. Pretty poor in my opinion.
Ben Harnett commented
Due to privacy concerns we need this in Australia. It looks like we'll be hosting this ourselves until then.

Can someone from the Microsoft team please provide some useful time frames?
"we plan to start work.." is not helpful at all. We need at least an expected availability for customers, so that we can plan current and future developments accordingly.
Jake Edwards commented
"I have got an update from our B2C product team that the expectation ETA is in the end of this year if everything goes well. "
Hey Microsoft, is there any update on when Australia will be added so data can reside in a Tenant within Australian shores? Promise was 6 months in July 2019. It's now a year later and there is no update or change. Surely this is worth addressing as your losing business to other options.
Why is this available in Yemen, Zimbabwe, Somalia etc. and not Australia?
Gavin Haak commented
When will we get an update? How is this not a priority given the MS footprint in Oz?
Dave Cawthorn commented
Can we please have an update on this? Given the importance of data residency for health systems and the urgency of response due to COVID19 our large potentential sales are impacted.
Any updates on this?
Market for Identity Service in Australia is very competitive. Providing Australia based data residency will be very useful and help utilize and migrate people to using b2c service.
As an identity service would hold PII information this concern becomes paramount for most companies.

Whats wrong with MSFT ? Australia is a big market
Can we get an update? as per last comment from Admin, work should have commenced already.
Aengus Moran commented
@Azure AD Team ....can we get an update and eta on this please.
John Del Forno commented
Went to sign up for this today, there's availability for Christmas Island but not Australia.
That's a bit ridiculous.
George Whitesend commented
3 years - 2.5 years before commenting that they plan to start work on it in the next 6 months (which reads, we may get to it but we may not). Joy.
Have you any further updates on availability of Azure AD B2C data residency in Australia

I'm gonna add with Sean as well,
If I create in Singapore and any other what's the migration path?
Certainly, our users won't like it if the user data is outside Australia.
Sean Hansford commented
Is there a migration path once AU gets added?
Robert Foster commented
We need this as we're implementing a data-sensitive system that needs to be hosted in Australia for compliance reasons.
Jacob Hodges commented
And what exactly do we do in the meantime? Will there be a migration process to move to the Australian region?
Australia is missing!!. Need to get this fixed guys ASAP. You can list Somalia but miss out on Australia!! And to make it work worse, if I choose a region I can't change it later.
