Provide MIM Portal to authenticate by SAML or any other federation standard.
Add SAML or WS-* support to MIM Portal to authenticate in a federated scenario and remove the account dependency from any local Active Directory.

I'm afraid there is some confusion here. Since I'm also interested in this function I'll try to clear things up.
The requester from https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/6caa7461-7c90-4e3f-b7fc-6fe2db2c9ff3/using-adfs-to-authenticate-on-a-mim-user-portal?forum=ilm2 asked for a way to use ADFS to activate PAM roles through the "MIM User Portal" He / she meant actually using the "Privileged Access Management REST API" based portal. He refers to the SharePoint based "MIM Portal" as well, which is the 'MIM Administration Portal'. There are two very different MIM portals in this story.
In the support request @ https://feedback.azure.com/forums/169401-azure-active-directory/suggestions/18391900-provide-mim-portal-to-authenticate-by-saml-or-any it looks like the aim is to support AFDS in the SharePoint based MIM Administration Portal. That's fine but not the main goal.
I suggest to rephrase the improvement as : Provide 'Privileged Access Management REST API' and 'MIM Portal' to authenticate by SAML or any other federation standard.
It's not an Azure issue so I ask myself if the Azure AD Team it the right address for this improvement.
