  1. Integrate Azure AD PIM with on-premises AD

    Azure AD PIM is a cool feature, and easy to use. The on-premises MIMPAM solution is the exact opposite experience. It requires a lot of infrastructure to be in place, and different skillsets are needed to make it secure. It's simply too expensive and complex for a lot of organizations to use.

    Integrating AAD PIM with on-premises AD would solve these issues. A cloud based solution, paid by usage (license per user).

  2. Make a App for AzureAD PIM to activate my roles

    Please Make a App for AzureAD PIM to activate my roles - so that the admin user that's only are using portal.office.com need to go into portal.azure.com to active the PIM roles (like global admin)

  3. Force admins to verify via MFA with every activation request

    If PIM role activation requires MFA verification the MFA back-end will abide by the "Don't prompt me again for X days" option which results in admins not being prompted to verify for a role activation.

    PIM should allow for the ability to ignore this setting and prompt admins every time they activate an admin role even though they may not have been prompted when logging into the Azure portal. Placing the MFA gate in front of admin role activation is the whole point to PIM.

  4. Support PIM for service principals

    We apply and update our Azure infrastructure through a CI workflow with ARM templates. To do this the CI authenticates with a service principal.

    We often deploy resource-group wide or subscription-wide deployments which require Owner or Contributor permissions to apply ARM templates. To up the security we would like support for PIM both through the CLI and for service principals.

    This way we can tell something is wrong if suddenly our CI is assigned the "owner" role and we have not run a CI job for a while.

  5. Expose AzureAD PIM Alerts via an API

    AzureAD (AAD) PIM generates alerts when there is suspicious or unsafe activity in the environment. When an AAD PIM alert is triggered, it shows up on the PIM dashboard. We would like for the PIM alerts to be exposed via an API so that we can integrate these alerts with our SIEM solution.

  6. Support webhooks for Azure PIM Approval Request

    It would be really great, if you would consider adding support for Webhooks as part of the newly introduced Azure PIM Approval workflowfeature. We would be able to do a lot of interesting stuff with this option :). Alternatively we would have to perform a pull for new approval request all the time. #automation #flow #apps

  7. Allow Organisations to force users to complete a new MFA challenge when elevating to a role in Privileged Identity Management

    Currently the behavior is that if a user signed into the Azure Portal and completed an MFA challenge they will not be prompted again when they elevate to a role in PIM even if the role settings are set to "Require MFA on elevation" as PIM will use the existing MFA claim/token that was completed upon sign-in.

    Please allow us to force PIM to acquire a new MFA claim on elevation.

  8. Enable PIM assignment for a guest user in a specific directory

    We use powershell to activate PIM for users, but when we change to a specific directory, the get-privilegedroleassignment cmdlet still lists the roles available in the "home" directory, rather than the directory that you're currently in..

    connect-pimservice -TenantName <XXXX>

    has no effect on the get-privilegedroleassignment command

  9. Ability to search on all Azure resources and resource groups in the "Resource filter" experience

    Azure resources/resource groups search in PIM doesn’t search my entire pool of resources /resource groups. It only searches by page. I have to click "load more" 15+ times to find some of my resource groups which is a horrible UX and seems more like a bug to me.

  10. Push notification when new request is pending of approval on PIM

    Currently, the only option for PIM approvers to receive notification of a new request is email (or my log in at AAD PIM -> Approve Requests).
    By having a push notification, the approval process would be faster when email is not monitored.

  11. Privileged Identity Management Activations duration should have both Maximum and Default activation duration.

    Privileged Identity Management Activations duration should have another configuratuion settings together with Maximum activation duration.


    • Maximum activation duration set to 8 hours

    • Default activation duration set to 4 hours

    This way administrators can extend the time if requered, replaces the need for automaticly have maximum activation time

  12. Notify PIM administrators when available roles are added or removed

    There have been recent changes to the roles that are managed by PIM. As an example, "Email Verified User Creator" has been removed and "Guest Inviter" has been added. It would be useful for existing holders of the role Privileged Role Administrator to be notified so they can impact assess the change.

  13. Allow Azure AD member to request role eligibility in Azure AD PIM

    I heard from customers that they would like the ability to switch on a toggle in Azure AD PIM that would allow normal users to request eligibility for a Azure AD Role.

    Basically:


    1. Toggle On - > Allow members to request Azure AD Role

    2. User/Member request role eligibility / Azure AD role

    3. Azure AD PIM admin approves the request for becoming member of the Azure AD role and with either eligibility/approval depending on the default roles.

    4. The member/user would afterwards be able to request approval / eligibility and get approval by the defined approver.

  14. Privileged Identity Management event into Event Grid for automation

    We would like to use Privileged Identity Management (PIM) to provide access to content within resource for example a database within a database server. To be able to hook into a successful 'just in time' request and it's timeout I would like to use something like Event Grid.

    The current alerting based on email is not good enough to be able to reliably build automation.

  15. A Restricted Role Administrator directory role

    It would be beneficial to have a Restricted Role Administrator (RRA) directory role in Azure AD. It would be similar to the Privileged Role Administrator, but you could select the priveleges you want the RRA to have. For example, an admin with more priveleges (ie Global Admin or Priveleged Role Admin) could decide if they want the RRA to have access to PIM and the admin could restrict the roles that the RRA could assign to other users, so if they don't want the RRA to be able to assign other users to the Global Admin role or specific Limited…

  16. Support somekind of policy based approval / mfa for Azure AD roles

    Our customer REALLY love the new approval workflow for Azure PIM, but they would really prefer an option to define policies for which admins need approval and for does who just need to elevate their own permissions using Azure MFA.

  17. Add support for a member reviewed PIM audit to flow to a reviewer PIM audit workflow.

    When performing an Audit Review using PIM it would be great if we could take the results of a Member reviewed audit and flow that directly into a reviewer controlled audit so that if a user stated Approved but their reason was not sufficient that their access could be revoked through the process. Additionally when adding this it would be great to support a reviewer comments section in addition to a member comments section.

  18. For access denied page, show least privilege role needed to encourage PIM

    When I get an access denied page in Azure AD portal, it would be VERY useful to add the least privileged role [needed to see this resource] as part of the error message page. This will help me know specifically which PIM role to activate (or to add this user to for future access) ...otherwise, it's often just ~easier~ to simply reach too high (e.g. activate GA because it's easier than hunting down or using trial-and-error to know which role I actually need)

    This is a GREAT resource and I use it often, but just surfacing the info immediately would…

  19. Show Info and add it to notifactions when activation expires

    We use PIM and sometimes a PIM activation expires in an opened Azure Portal session.
    Sadly, we often need some time to realize that activation expired, because the functions in Azure Portal are not blocked and therefore clickable and there are many cryptic error messages shown, when we try to use functions for which the activation is expired.

    It would be nice, if a Info is displayed when PIM activation expires.
    This info should be added to the notifactions (bell).

  20. JIT Access Request

    Users have been given JIT Access to a subscription for Contributor and Owner Role. Had given Direct Access as "Reader Role ".

    If a user did not elevate its "Reader Role" to a Contributor or Owner, VM validation fails in the last step.

    Is it possible to bring up the page for elevation during the validation rather than re-doing everything from scratch? (i.e. step #1 elevate your permission first step #2 deploy your VM)

    Thank you,

    Allan
