    Be able to see and change the userType from the portal.

      Thank you for the feedback on this issue. We’re still considering it but don’t have a specific ETA so updating the status. It’s helpful to understand your scenarios around this and other features so please feel to keep commenting with how you would use this.

    • B2B Guest User Expiration

      Looking for the functionality where you can schedule Azure B2B users to exist in your tenant for a predetermined period of time. This would operate similarly to the O365 Groups expiration functionality that exist today. Additionally, managers would be allowed to extend these periods of time and automated reminders would be sent to the manager of these users.

      • Add support for webhooks when users are invited, added, removed from Azure AD + Azure AD B2B Collaboration

        Currently it is not possible to receive a notification from Azure AD when a user has been invited (through B2B Collaboration) or added directly through Graph API or the portal.

        • Can i use Azure AD B2B collaboration together with Azure AD B2C within one tenant?

          For external customers we will use Azure AD B2B to login in and for external users (from custom domains i.e. Hotmail.com, Outlook.com) we would like to use Azure AD B2C to log on.

          So, one tenant with Azure AD B2B extension and Azure B2C extension coexisting.

            We’re looking into this and would like more information about the scenarios for this combination. Are you using B2B and B2C for the same end-user scenario, or are users coming in through B2B interacting with your system differently than users from B2C? If we supported authorizing a superset of account types via one or the other, would you still need both for your scenario?

          • Bring through external user profile fields when using B2B

            Currently, when you invite someone from another AzureAD, using the B2B process, only their DisplayName and EmailAddress comes through (both of which are actually provided in the B2B CSV file).

            It would be very useful if more profile information could be retrieved, possibly with the user's authorisation.

            In particular, details like Firstname, Lastname and Country, would be a useful start, but potentially more profile fields (address, phone numbers, title, etc) would be ideal.

              We’re looking into this feature and would appreciate more information about how you would use it. What attributes would you expect to be part of the sync? Would you expect different attributes for AAD vs. MSA vs. Gmail vs. other accounts? Would you expect the attributes to be updated after account creation, and if so on what schedule/triggers? Please leave comments with your particular scenarios so we can take them into consideration!

              Thanks!

              • remove b2b user when host account is removed

                We use Azure B2B extensively. However where B2B users have been into our directory and the user has left the third party organisation and thus had their account removed does not clean up the guest account records in our directory.

                Over time this leaves thousands of 'orphaned' guest accounts in our directory, with no ability for our administrators to identify which accounts are orphaned. and thus numbers of guest users in our our directory expands over time infinity

                Azure AD should automatically in the in the event of a user object being removed from the third party directory remove the…

                • Azure AD B2B better support for users who don't know their organisation has O365

                  We invite quite a lot of external guests into our SPOnline tenant. Originally via the (old Azure portal) bulk add (CSV) B2B process, but more recently via the (new Azure portal) invite guest user B2B/B2C process.

                  We're getting more and more B2B users that fit into one or more of the following:

                  1. Don't know their organisation has O365
                  2. Don't know their O365 login (it's not always their email address)
                  3. Their organisation/domain is registered for O365, but they don't have a license.
                  4. Have O365, but aren't syncing their AD with AzureAD.

                          Allow all and future users from guest tenant to automatically be added as guest users without invitation email. This would mimic the classic AD trust.

                            Azure Active Directory, Guest User invite. Allow Group/Distribution lists.

                            You can not add a guest user email address if its a distribution list. You have to use a "user" email address, ticket REG:117081816209241. This is would be useful to invite clients to manage certain objects (our example is keyvaults). People come and go and change positions. So using a distro list makes sense here. Using a "shared" mailbox is possible but why extra overhead of an additional mailbox and license.

                                  When a user is invited as a guest, an invite email is sent to them. In this mail, there is a link which they have to click. Their invitation is redeemed and the user becomes "active".

                                  Instead, it would be a lot better if the user automatically went through the activation process the first time they tried to log in from an app in the directory were they recently was invited into as guest.

                                  We could still send an email, but there would then be no scary looking links that they have to click. Clicking scary stuff in emails is…

                                  • Enable full Language customization for Azure B2B

                                    Azure AD B2B sends verification code emails to external guests only in english. There is no possibility to change language & design? Besides, if the external user has to set the new passwort for his MSA/AAD, the page is in english and cannot be customized as well. Any plans on this? Or any other idea to get this working in local language? Any plans when there will be a possibility to customize the design? Thanks a lot!

                                    • Set Additional User Properties in New-​Azure​AD​MS​Invitation -Title -Mobile -GivenName -Surname, etc.

                                      PowerShell and portal.azure.com should enable more attributes to be set when inviting external users, such as their Mobile number, GivenName, Surname, Title, etc. rather than waiting until the invited user is added and then having to lookup their object ID and setting the attributes with Set-ADUser

                                      • Enable the option for adding # in the reply url for Angular applications

                                        When developing angular applications etc, often the reply url would be something like https://myurl/#/callback. This is not possible today.

                                        • Resolve issue with Mail enabled contacts and Guest users being able to co-exist in Azure AD

                                          Currently mail enabled contact objects in Azure AD and Guest users are unable to co-exist.

                                          This blocks being able to use guest accounts for access to Office 365 workloads for any of those contacts.
