  1. Allow extensibility of portal through the use of custom controls

    There are some business scenarios which currently cannot be built in the FIM portal due to the limited set of Uoc controls available, and their lack of customization. This leads to external tools needing to be made, fracturing the experience for FIM users. Allowing the Uoc base control to be made public and inheritable opens up scenarios for controls with extended validations, external lookups, code behind, and much more.

    • Modern end-user portal

      One of the main blockers to deploy MIM is lack of a modern end-user facing portal. One doesn't need to port all the functionalities to such a portal straight away and MPRs, Workflows etc can stay within an old portal for admins, but users should see responsive and simple interface (not based on SharePoint)

        • Support Group Managed Servcie Accounts (gMSA)

          A big problem for customers once MIM is deployed is changing all the service accounts used by the solution. Supporting group managed service accounts would help lessen this customer pain.

          • 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.

              • Azure AD Connector

                We need a supported connector for MIM to efficiently Read and Write data to Azure AD.

                The use of Azure AD Connect complicates the architecture of solutions requiring on-premises data synchronization through MIM.

                • FIM Portal Create RCDC's flexiblity (Allow Custom Events)

                  Allow Custom Events on Controls in RCDC so that it is possible to set some Checkboxes in the RCDC to true or false.
                  Example:
                  UocRadioControl with Option like SharedMailbox, RoomMailbox, EquipmentMailbox.

                  Based on that it should be possible to define which Attributes or groupings are visible.
                  This give more flexibility on creation RCDC's.

                  • More control over FIMService MA

                    FIMService MA being treated as a special one (no transforms, MRE control etc)

                    In some cases we need more control on FIMService MA where we can do controls like any other MA. We have seen reverse joins also not working very well and in a DR scenario FIMService MA caused issues for us..

                    • Do not require database SysAdmin privilege for installation/upgrade of MIM

                      Requiring the highest level of privilege for installing and updating MIM is not seen as acceptable by Database Administrators as it causes security concerns, especially in an environment where databases use shared hardware. In the UK/EU and probably equivalents elsewhere, this is of particular concern for organisations that need to adhere to PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) or GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

                      The MIM installer should require the least privileges it needs to do it's job so that the database administrator can define a role that meets these requirements. Anything that truly needs to be done…

                          • Hybrid Reporting

                            Extend current Hybrid-Identity functionality to allow for the synchronization to Azure AD Reporting of the details of the operations performed in MIM and not just a subset of the SSPR and group management operations. Ideally we would want to have the option to select what specific information to synchronize to Azure AD.

                            • Migrate MIM Service activities to the latest version of the .NET framework.

                              With the MIM Service stuck at .NET Framework 3.5, this adds an extra pre-requisite to deploying the service on modern OS, and forces development on a old platform. It also reflects poorly with potential purchasers that the product if so far out of date with the Framework versions.

                                We are looking at the upgrading to .net version. At the moment we know we can’t go to .net 4.5 due to the dependant component change.

                                In an hybrid exchange Scenario when you only assign a license for Exchange Online to a synchronized user to Provision his mailbox the corresponding onPRem AD attribues are not set.

                                So These mailboxes cannot be managed from the onPrem Exchange Admin console.

                                So it might be a good idea to have also "Exchange Online Provisioning" wihtin the AD connector and not only onPRem Exchanges.
                                Connector should call the "Enable-RemoteMailbox" cmdlet which sets the appropriate Attribute onPrem and after synch and assign license users can use their mailbox.

                                Btw: Please rename the "Exchange 2010" provisioning option to "Exchange 2010-2016", in every…

                                        • UocListView support for sorting

                                          Extending UocListView with an other Property like Sorting, to define a custom sort. It should support functionality like ascending and descending. This should be possible for String and DateTime attributes
