  1. RBAC for AAD

    The Azure teams have done an awesome job implementing RBAC. I would love to have this same functionality (granular permissions + custom roles) for AAD itself.
    Currently there's too many activities that only a global admin can do. RBAC would allow us to delegate appropriate activities without increasing our security attack surface.

    We have released a public preview of custom roles with support for a handful of permissions related to managing application registrations. We’re now working on support for enterprise application management permissions, and will continue to release more permissions iteratively over time.

    We very much appreciate all of your feedback here. We’re not done yet, so please keep letting us know what you think and where we can improve.

    CONFIRMED that NPS and Azure AD Domain Service can work with the Azure MFA NPS extension to enable MFA for RDP to virtual machines. That said, Azure Bastion Host (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/bastion/bastion-overview) provides the same value without the additional infrastructure of NPS. We have a doc bug created to add the nuance to our documentation, which is to 1) Skip registering the NPS server and 2) ensure your network policy has “Ignore user account dial-in properties” selected.
    Leaving the topic open as we continue to investigate/validate other NPS use cases (e.g. VPN and 802.x scenarios)

  3. AADB2C: Support OAuth 2.0 client credential flow

    As mentioned in the B2C limitations:

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/active-directory-b2c-limitations/

    Our daemons / server-side applications need this feature as part of our security implementation in order to grant access to our web apis.

    Currently, you can use “App Registration” blade in the Azure Portal (outside of the Azure AD B2C blades) to register an apps that define application permission and the register apps that use client credentials to request these. The caveat is that this is done using the same mechanism that you’d use in regular Azure AD.

    Ideally we’d have a first class experience for this in the Azure AD B2C blades or at least have an Azure doc that walks you through the experience I just summarized, so I’m leaving this feature ask open.

    It would be great if you guys can add comments with your feedback. What scenarios areyou trying to achieve? Does the approach above help you achieve what you want to achieve? Does the experience to do so work for you guys and if not, what would you like to see?

  4. Support Remote Desktop Web Client HTML5 on Azure AD App Proxy

    Microsoft doesn't support the Azure AD Application Proxy on RD WebClient (HTML5). Like this MFA and Condintional Access would be possible.
    Another benefit is that HTML5 works on all Webbrowsers without downloading software.

  5. Update UserType from portal

    Be able to see and change the userType from the portal.
    (This is only available in Powershell : example: change from Guest -> member, in order to see the directory as an external user.)

    Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName xxxhotmail.com#EXT#@xxxhotmail.onmicrosoft.com -UserType Member

  6. Allow Conversion of AD Synced Accounts to "In Cloud Only"

    Up until recently, we were able to convert a user which was AD Synced to a cloud account by moving it to an OU in AD which was not synced.
    After the next sync, Office 365 would move it into the deleted folder. If you recover it, it goes into a cloud account. As of a few weeks ago, Microsoft disabled this.

    Looking at countless threads around the internet, and speaking with representatives from Microsoft Office 365 support, everyone is frustrated with this change, and wants it changed back to the way it was.

    We are aware of the requirement to be able to convert a synced user to cloud only and are designing that feature, but we have no timelines to share right now.
    We reverted the change that would block the “hack” to delete and restore a user to change a user to “Cloud Only”.

  7. AADB2C: Force password reset

    Add the ability to force user's to reset password at next login. It would be ideal if this was available for both individual users as well as in bulk. This is necessary for situations such as credential leaks, etc.

    We have started the planning for this feature and hope to have a preview by the end of the calendar year. In the meantime, could you respond to aadb2cpreview@microsoft.com with the answers to the following questions:
    - In which scenarios do you plan to force the user to change his/her password?
    - What kind of information (if any) would you like to get back if the user goes through the reset flow?
    - Do you currently or plan to track which users have reset their password?

  8. Support Azure AD domain join for Windows Server 2016

    Microsoft should strongly consider implementing support for Azure AD join in future builds of Windows Server 2016. I how a couple of customers that have nearly finished the transition to all cloud and is left with a couple of servers due to legacy software. They are currently left with the option to deploy Azure AD Domain Services for supporting a couple (2-5) servers.

  11. Add Japan region to data residency location of Azure AD B2C

  12. Ability to trigger a dynamic group update

    It would be wonderful if there was a way to trigger a re-sync of dynamic groups after changes are made. Right now some changes take over 24 hours to show and when experimenting with new dynamic rules it makes it difficult to see results. The trigger could be something like the Reset and Resync box in Enterprise Apps provisioning or just a Powershell applet that can be run.

    Our feature team is looking into options for addressing this scenario, but we do not yet have any timelines to share. For now as a workaround, you can manually trigger the reprocessing by updating the membership rule to add a whitespace at the end. We’ve also added the ability to check the membership processing status, to keep track of the status and know if processing is complete.

  13. Azure AD B2C Data Residency in Australia

    Although Azure AD B2C is available for use in Australia, there is not option to create a directiry for which the user data resides in Australia. We would like to be able to ensure that our Azure AD B2C user data remains in Australia.

    We are looking to add additional MFA options for Azure AD B2C in the next few months. As part of the investigation, we want to learn more about your requirements. Email your feedback to aadb2cpreview@microsoft.com.

    When you say “support for Microsoft Authenticator”, which feature are you referring to?
    1. The ability to see the codes in the authenticator app
    2. The ability to receive push notifications for MFA

    If both, which do you prefer more?

    Again, please email your feedback to aadb2cpreview@microsoft.com. Feel free to include more details about your scenarios/requirements!

  15. Azure AD B2C, How to Avoid / Validate, duplicate Sign up with Social Identity Providers

    Hi, Assume, I sign up with Google 'siva@gmail.com', it creates a user in the tenant. I sign up with Facebook 'siva@gmail.com', it creates another user in the tenant. Also I went and Sign up using email account, for 'siva@gmail.com', now am finding 3 users with same email id. I see this is a duplicate accounts are getting created. Is there any way this can be validated & inform user in Azure AD B2C ?

    Thank you. We will examine the experience of duplicate sign ups across Identity providers. Would performing this check by using the email address be sufficient?

    BTW, Linking multiple provider accounts to one user is in our roadmap and we’ve already achieved it in preview…

    We look forward to your feedback

  16. MFA: remember device permanently (& remember per device, not per app)

    Please:
    1. Remove the 60-day (max) limit on remembering Office 365/Azure MFA authorisation for a device/app.
    2. Make it so that MFA is remembered once per *device* (well, per user account per device), not once per app (for all Microsoft apps that authorise across all kinds of devices).

    Rationale: Having to refresh the MFA authorisation periodically does not add to security, because we already know that the app or device is trusted and if that changes (e.g. device is lost or stolen), the correct procedure to follow is for the admin to immediately revoke the authorisation for the device and/or…

  19. B2C Support for client credential flow.

    To enable APIs to use authentication from another application with separate security credentials (clientId+secret). Needed for APIs to make graph calls.

    (This is not the same as on-behalf-of flow, which represents the ability to exchange an access token intended for one audience for an access token intended for a different audience)

  20. Enable support for dynamic mail-enabled security groups

    Dynamic security groups are great, mail-enabled groups are great too wouldn't it be great to have both. We have a requirement to create security groups (or distribution groups) based on employee attributes (i.e. Active Full-time, Active Parttime, etc...). These attributes live in Azure AD but aren't accessible in Exchange Online so I cannot create a dynamic distribution group. I am able to create a mail-enabled security group but the membership cannot be dynamic. And any dynamic group I create can't be mail-enabled unless it's a unified group but for the purposes we need the groups for Unified groups aren't appropriate.…
