  1. serviceNow

    I think there is significant area for improvement of the Auto Provisioning functionality when dealing with referenced fields.

    For example, the user table within ServiceNow looks similar to the sample snippet below:

    TABLE - User [sys_user]

    FIELD - Username [username] - string
    FIELD - Name [name] - string
    FIELD - Email [email] - string
    FIELD - Department [department] - references Department [cmn
    department] table
    FIELD - Location [location] - references Location [cmn_location] table
    FIELD - etc. etc.

    Provisioning from Azure - in the cloud - is an awesome alternative to the previous configuration of having ServiceNow communicate with on-prem…

  2. Integrate site mapping for Samanage App

    I am provisioning users from AAD to Samanage and I am trying to map the AD attribute "physicalDeliveryOfficeName" to the Samanage "site" attribute. This mapping is currently not supported and I would find it useful.

  3. Attribute SAMAccountName for the ServiceNow User provisioning

    Would be great to to have in the supported list of attributes in the ServiceNow user provisioning app the attribute SamAccountName. This is important for example for the intgegration of legacy applications like SCCM in ServiceNow asset management. Thanks for your support

  4. Allow dynamic permission set assignment in Salesforce provisioning

    Right now AAD supports a "Permission Sets"attribute, however this is not usable. Salesforce users have multiple Permission Sets, which are dependent on their O365 groups. For example, members of the O365 group "IT Services Team" would get the permission set "IT Services" in Salesforce. Until AAD's Salesforce connector supports mapping Permission Sets based on group membership in AAD, most organizations will not be able to use AAD for Salesforce provisioning.

  5. Make Azure Groups PATCH remove operation SCIM v2 compliant

    The request body for Update Group [Remove Members] is not compliant with the SCIM v2 specification.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/manage-apps/use-scim-to-provision-users-and-groups#update-group-remove-members

    Azure is specifying the member value they want deleted in the "value" property. SCIM specification states that the member value that would be removed in the PATCH operation needs to be set in the "path" property, not "value". The "value" property should actually never be sent in a PATCH remove operation per specification.
    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7644#section-3.5.2.2

    If a Service Provider that implemented SCIM per specification were to receive PATCH remove request from Azure as is documented above, that request would result in ALL users being…

  6. Allow user folder provisioning for Box upon user assignment in Azure ADP

    We made the choice to use Azure AD Premium as the main IdP platform for our organization despite being a newer product in the IdP market space. Unfortunately due to the newness we understand it hasn't quite caught up with others like Okta, etc. as far as being able to extend certain items to the Box cloud space.

    One feature we observed when aligning Okta & Box is that when a user gets assigned or provisioned to the Box Application, they also have the ability to provision a user folder at the time the account is provisioned.

    We would like…

  7. Azure AD User provisioning service : Adding a Staging/Preview mode

    Please add a Staging/Preview mode for the Azure AD User Provisioning Service.
    It should be possible in an initial setup to test a new provisioning interface and receive a report on what will be changed in an end application. This gives the possibility and security that a new interface can be set up productively.
    There is currently a risk that unwanted changes will be made.
    As a suggestion; extension of the Scope field by
    - Sync all users and groups (Preview only)
    - Sync only assigned users and groups (Preview only)

  10. Get group membership as an attribute of the user when provisioning with SCIM

    When mapping Azure AD attributes to application attributes, I would to know the group membership in order to set properly the values of the target attributes.

    Imagine the licence is an attribute of the user object. It can be "premium"/"silver"/etc.
    On-premises, in AD, I manage my group membership by adding the user to groups like "MyApplicationPremium", "MyApplicationSilver", etc.
    By leveveraging the group membership in the mapping, I can set the proper licence.
    There is no other way to manage this as I will not have an attribute for each application to hold the licence for instance.

  11. (Provision null attributes) Add option to have properties be emptied after clearing them in Azure AD

    Right now, I can set a phone number and clear it again in Azure. Azure will update the phonenumber in the application but will never clear it. This is by design I understand that, but our customers would like the option to also clear this information as they consider AAD the source/leading system and it's primary task is to make sure all other applications have the same data, which currently is not the case as the data is never removed from applications after it is removed from AAD

  12. Please support Join in provisioning with user groups in Azure AD.

    Please support Join function in provisioning with user groups in Azure AD.

    Excerpt:
    Matching based on a combination of attributes is not supported: Most applications do not support querying based on two properties. Therefore, it is not possible to match based on a combination of attributes. It is possible to evaluate single properties on after another.

  13. Support filtering = false | ServiceProviderConfig

    Azure AD SCIM client is not compatible with applications, which do not support "filtering".

    If “filtering” is not supported by 3rd party app, do not ignore that.
    Use the “matching” attribute defined in mappings during the initial cycle to check, if the resource exists.
    If resource exists (HTTP-200), save “ID” persistently.
    Use “ID” in every subsequent request

    cf. RFC7644 section 4: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7644#section-4

  14. AAD provisioning does not show Audit logs for group membership

    AAD and G suite provisioning does not show Audit logs for group membership update which is I believe quite important to know. As per MS agent :

    If the user is not provisioned already on G suite, when we try to update group membership, this would obviously fail since we don't have a reference attribute to resolve on the target. Currently, by design, Azure AD doesn't retry the previously failed group membership update after the user is provisioned. Workarounds to fix this problem is to remove and re-add the user as a member of the group or trigger a clear…

  15. IDCS Provisioning doesn't work

    The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Gallery app uses OracleIDCS object. But it doesn't support the attribute primary email = boolean. You cannot create a user in IDCS unless you set the email and put it as primary. so essentially, the email.primary has to be set to a boolean(true). Please include it in the OracleIDCS objectclass

  16. Application Provisioning Attribute Mapping Configuration Backup for last 5 changes

    During recent incident I came to know the Provisioning Configuration changes details does not get backed up. i.e. attribute changes which we make on attribute mapping. Only a text message get recorded the when changes are performed. It never record what changes were made. If Microsoft provide anyone functionality it will be helpful for all Azure customer.

    Option 1) Provide backup for provisioning application schema for the last 5 configuration changes which can be access by Admin. It will help Admin to restore from the backup if incase of any failure while updating the Schema

    Option 2) Currently Microsoft records…

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
