  1. Get 'low license count' notification

    It would be beneficial to get a notification when license count gets to x number. We are syncing our users with DirSync and apply licenses based on group membership. When users get synced and we have no licenses, I have zero idea until someone comes to me that they cannot get logged in to O365.

  2. Add the ability to set licensing supercedence rules

    In the event that a user exists in multiple groups that have different licenses assigned the user should take the higher license by default (i.e. assigned SPO Plan 2 instead of SPO Plan 1) or give the admin the ability to set the rules. We ran into this issue as we assigned licenses based on airport locations but mangers were already assigned licenses from our corporate roll-out so they ran into errors.

  4. Allow Direct license assignment through powershell on Group Based Licensing scenarios

    Group based licensing supports the coexistence with Direct license assignment to users. This means that from the AAD portal we can directly assign a license to a user that inherits a license through a group. Right now this is not possible through powershell which is a problem when trying to assign licenses on pilot scenarios.

    Set-AzureADUserLicense -ObjectId $msolUserObject.objectid -AssignedLicenses $AssignedLicenses
    Set-AzureADUserLicense : Error occurred while executing SetUserLicenses
    Code: Request_BadRequest
    Message: User inherits a license from a group membership and it cannot be directly modified on the user. License Sku: ENTERPRISEPREMIUM, Account:

    Please add this functionality.

  5. Azure Active Directory License assignment

    Please ad more flexibility to the Azure Active Directory License assignment. I.E. to exclude blocked users from getting a license.

  6. Azure Active Directory License assignment

    It appears to not do a recursive search of the groups you assign AAD Basic and Premium too. Please add the ability to do recursive group license assignments.

  8. Licensing Blade - Add column for ActiveUnits

    Right now, you can't see how many licenses are purchased in the tenant. And no, it is not the same as assigned + available. Assigned can be over subscribed. You are unable to determine this from the Azure AD -> Licenses -> Products blade.

    Be able to show the "ActiveUnits" value for each license in the tenant. Same as the output from Get-MsolAccountSku.

    Better yet, add the standard column picker to the grid view on this blade.

  9. Licensing in o365

    Licensing via PowerShell (group-based licensing is still in public preview and companies like mine with 500k+ user base its difficult to purchasep1 or p2 for everyone.) for an enterprise having 500K+ users is not good enough. especially when a change of role requires license removal or change.

    AssignedLicenses is an available attribute in Azure AD. Not sure if it is possible to make that attribute available under target attributes in AAD. so companies can att license skuid in on prem directory and when synced to cloud user object will have that license assigned. Further, more attributes will be available to…

  11. Show clear and verbose information on licensing conflicts

    Currently a licensing conflict is just labeled as a licensing conflict and there is no information at all as to which other licensing product is causing the conflict.

    It would be VERY helpful if the admin portal would give details as to the EXACT products that are causing the licensing conflict,

  13. Visibility of Hybrid Azure joined devices, their current user and license information

    At present it is only possible to see the assigned user of an AAD registered device, I would like to be able to see the assigned user of a Hybrid joined device, this is because when a WIn 10 Ent license is assigned to a user, it is not possible to see the device against the user. This is also preventing our users from being able to access the Bitlocker recoivery key for their device in their Azure portal if they need to unlock their device.

  14. Microsoft 365 Business and AAD Premium 1

    Not sure if this is correct uservoice for it, I find it really limiting that Microsoft 365 Business does not include AAD Premium 1. I'd very much replace AIP or Autopilot for AAD Premium - to get access to MFA primarily - especially when I'd want to create secure, reliable IT for SMBs, for whom every monetary commitment is a big deal already. For now, it makes far more sense to go Business Premium + EMS E3, which is ~1 euro more expensive. Please rethink it or provide good reasoning - because I might not see few points in here?

  16. Alerts on failed license assignments

    Add email alerts and/or add monitoring capabilities for group based license assignments. If you have an overrun or conflicting service plans, you have to go into each group and look for those errors. Admins should be able to see this in a dashboard and definitely need email alerts of issues.

  17. Allow removal/deletion of Group based License Assignments without a valid Azure AD P1/P2 or EMS License

    While adding Group based License Assignments is only possible with a valid Azure AD P1/P2 License or EMS License the removal of those Group based License Assignments should be possible when the needed Plan is expired or deleted.

    In my case I had a EMS Trial running and configured Group Based Licensing. After the EMS Trial expired I was unable to delete the Group Based Licensing assignment. I had to enable a Azure AD P2 Trial to delete the Assignment.

  19. Assign Office 365 license to B2C account

    For companies using SharePoint online as their extranet, there is no way to license an Office 365 license to an AAD B2C user account. Please add the functionality to allow assigning an Office 365 license to an AAD B2C user account.

  20. License management on-premises

    It would be nice to have the O365 licenses managed on-premises -in that way there won't be need of artificial scripting.
