  1. Add more scope options for user/group syncing

    Enterprise Applications currently offer two scoping options with SCIM to sync users/groups in AAD with third party SaaS solution.
    This poses some issues for companies with large number of users and groups in Azure AD.

    In some cases, when selecting the provisioning scope, we would like to synchronize all users, and selected groups. But that is not available, the only options are :
    1. Sync all users and groups
    2. Sync only assigned users and groups

    If we want to sync all users and select groups, we have to choose the first option and set up scope filters for group…

    The best way to accomplish this is to

    1. Create a dynamic group that contains all users in the tenant and assign it to the app.
    2. Assign any groups you would like to the app.
    3. Set scope to sync assigned users and groups.

    This will result in all users being provisioning and only the groups you choose being provisioned.

  2. Allow blocked users to be provisioned to SaaS apps

    we have group/ user provisioning turned on to ServiceNow. Everything is working great, except the users with "block sign in" checked. I reviewed the provisioning logs and show these users aren't sent over to SN. We are doing license management and need to see when inactive users are still assigned a license.

  3. Sub attributes in mappings

    Sub attributes arent supported in custom sso apps.

    I'm unable to match a user if their email is a sub attribute

    e.g. emails.value

  4. Configure sync Scope per mapping

    There is a global provisioning setting to Sync only assigned users and groups, or Sync all users and groups. I would like to set this per user mappings or per group mappings. The reason for this is because we have applications that we don't have licenses for all our users. So I would like to provision the users by group membership (assigned), but sync groups globally based on a naming standard (scoping filter).

    The issue with scoping filters is you can't scope based on group membership, which would be another feature request I suppose.

  6. AzureAD Box User Deprovisioning Transfer Files to Another Account

    Box supports the ability to specify an account to which user files are transferred. We rely on this functionality to ensure that user's files are transferred to a backup service account when a user leaves the organization. It would be very nice to have this capability too.

  7. Salesforce Connector Terminology

    This may be "cosmetic" but in the Salesforce - Users and groups
    Assignment page, 1 Azure AD Security Group is mapped to something called a Role. It's actually a Profile in Salesforce. Aligning the terminology could be good as Salesforce Role are different.

  8. Remove possibility for mapping to readonly ID attribute

    According to RFC 7643 section 3.1 “The value of the "id" attribute is always issued by the service provider and MUST NOT be specified by the client.” But in fact azure portal allows mapping to “id” attribute which is violation of RFC.
    RFC https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7644#section-3.12 specifies that service provider should respond with “Bad Request” to these invalid requests. There is even example of such response in the end of section 3.12.

  9. Azure AD User provisioning service : Support Contains Function in Attribut Flow Expression

    Adding a new Expression for https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/manage-apps/functions-for-customizing-application-data called Contains(source[Multivalue], ValueRule).

    This allowes multiple AppRoleAssignments and to set the correct Roles in the SaaS application.

    As a reference SAP Concur with Roles like:
    - Travel user
    - Expense user

    instead of
    - Travel user
    - Expense user
    - Travel and Expense user

  10. Azure connector sync issues

    We are trying to auto provision Salesforce users using Azure AD connector. We want certain attributes like ManagerId and Department to be in sync with AD always. So we had set that to "Always" in the set up. But our observation says that, when these values are changed in AD, it is updating to the new values in Salesforce. But if these values are changed in Salesforce, they are not getting overwritten with the values from AD in Salesforce. Which means, now they are out of sync.
    Since we have set that to "Always", we expect these attributes to be…

    Thanks for the input. The way the service works today we leverage the delta query API provided by AD graph to constantly check for changes and apply them to the target application. We are aware of changes in Azure AD and have a way of reflecting them in the target application. We don’t have a way today of getting changes directly from Salesforce but are looking at how we can make this possible.
