  1. Get user membership groups in the claims with AD B2C

    As it's possible in the standard AD by changing the API application manifest option "groupMembershipClaims" to "SecurityGroup", is it possible to return user membership group in the claims with AD B2C?

    Now, we can have only the default and custom attributes by adding a signin policy, but it's impossible to get user membership groups.

      We definitely recognize the popularity of this feature, and we discuss it constantly during the planning phases. However there are certain technical limitations in the system that add a large amount of development cost. Because of the cost and the fact that there is a workaround available, other features get prioritized over this one.

      That being said, please keep voting for it. The popularity of the feature does help bring it up and makes us reconsider every time.

      Apologies for the delay.

      Old message:
      We’re doing some research both on the specifics of this ask as well as what it would take to support this.
      Is the ask here to do the same thing that regular Azure AD does (see: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2014/12/18/azure-active-directory-now-with-group-claims-and-application-roles/) or is are there different requirements around this for Azure AD B2C?

    • 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.

        Hi all, a quick update here. We are looking at different options in allowing this customization. We understand that this is very important when you want to keep the look of the emails consistent with your brand to avoid confusing your users. We should have another update in the coming months as we figure out how to accomplish this.

      • Customer-owned domains

        Run Azure AD B2C's sign-up & sign-in pages under a custom domain, for e.g., login.contoso.com, instead of login.microsoftonline.com.

          Due to various technical limitations, the first iteration of the customer-owned domains functionality will not be available for a few more months. We will provide an update as soon as we can get a more specific ETA.

          If you are looking to use custom domains to use javascript, we are now looking to enable that experience by providing a new (non-customizable) domain. Please look for updates here: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/169401-azure-active-directory/suggestions/15493536-add-support-for-javascript-inside-the-custom-ui-br

        • B2C Fully Customizable Sign-In Page

          Create a Sign In Policy by which we can provide our own template for the sign in page. It could work the same way as the Sign Up policy does.

          • Add support for Resource Owner Password Credentials flow in Azure AD B2C and headless authentication in Microsoft Authentication Library

            Add support for Resource Owner Password Credentials flow in Azure AD B2C and headless authentication in Microsoft Authentication Library, just like Azure AD and Active Directory Authentication Library has.

            The Azure AD B2C page has been saying 'Get tokens using a username & password with the OAuth 2.0 Resource Owner Password Credentials Flow (coming soon)' since September 2015.

              Just to provide an update, we are close to launching a private preview. We are in the final testing stages for this feature. We will have another update in the next few weeks with instructions on how to join the private preview.

            • AADB2C: Send email invitation for new user to sign up

              I would like the ability to trigger an email invitation be sent to new users for our web application that I want to authenticate with AADB2C. In our multi-tenant design, each tenant will be responsible for adding their own users to their tenant. I would like the admin of the tenant to be able to send an email invitation to the new user and then that user can complete the sign-up process.

                • Add an Azure AD Identity Provider

                  AADB2C is great, but why not adding an Azure AD provider? We're developing an application where we can have customers with social identities as well as Azure AD identities, it would be great in the AADB2C login page to have an option like "Organization Account". In this way we can code against one single API and not be forced to use two different entry points.

                          Currently, you can use “App Registration” blade in the Azure Portal (outside of the Azure AD B2C blades) to register an apps that define application permission and the register apps that use client credentials to request these. The caveat is that this is done using the same mechanism that you’d use in regular Azure AD.

                          Ideally we’d have a first class experience for this in the Azure AD B2C blades or at least have an Azure doc that walks you through the experience I just summarized, so I’m leaving this feature ask open.

                          It would be great if you guys can add comments with your feedback. What scenarios areyou trying to achieve? Does the approach above help you achieve what you want to achieve? Does the experience to do so work for you guys and if not, what would you like to see?

                          Hi, Assume, I sign up with Google 'siva@gmail.com', it creates a user in the tenant. I sign up with Facebook 'siva@gmail.com', it creates another user in the tenant. Also I went and Sign up using email account, for 'siva@gmail.com', now am finding 3 users with same email id. I see this is a duplicate accounts are getting created. Is there any way this can be validated & inform user in Azure AD B2C ?

                            Thank you. We will examine the experience of duplicate sign ups across Identity providers. Would performing this check by using the email address be sufficient?

                            BTW, Linking multiple provider accounts to one user is in our roadmap and we’ve already achieved it in preview…

                              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?

                                • Reduce pricing for Azure AD B2C

                                  Azure AD B2C seems to be an interesting and very important service, however in my opinion it is >dramatically< overpriced. Having to pay thousands of dollars >per month< just for a few million users is in no relation to other Azure Services.

                                  E.g. Storing 10 million users would cost 950k * €0.00093 + 9mil * €0.00076 = 7723,5€ per month. And this doesn't even include authentications.
                                  This makes me wondering if your case study Real Madrid really would like all of their 450 million fans use this service. I think they would have to sell a player in that case!…

                                    Restating what Alex Simons said in the comments below:

                                    The vast majority of our B2C customers see monthly active user rates in the 10 – 15% at the very high end. In addition, most set their token lifetimes to be relatively long (you don’t want users on a mobile device to have to authenticate more than is absolutely necessary) so even though a user might be actively using your app each month, they might only be requesting a token every other month – or maybe even less.

                                    So if you compare this to either AWS or running your own authentication server (make sure you included the full cost to maintain/run/upgrade/etc.) I think you will find it’s very price competitive.

                                    That said, we are looking at some additional pricing options that would give apps that have a very high usage rate (50% or more of users active each month) some options…

                                    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 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?

                                          As service provider using Azure as the underlying platform, I want to create an application that allows companies to create and manage their tenants and users within my service in order to provide a public service area as well as a privately owned area for the company.

                                          I've read about B2C supporting multi-tenant, but I couldn't find hints within the documentation...
