How can we improve Microsoft Azure Analysis Services?

Support security groups that are in the domain name format, not just the email address format

Please support security groups that are in the domain name format, not just the email address format.

Using the workaround described here can be manual and time-consuming: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/sqlblog/2017/01/24/azure-analysis-services-howto-add-security-group/

    I have found a workaround that allows you to use a security group! Instead of trying to reference the security group by name, use the following format "obj:<security_group_object_id>@<directory_id>". I can confirm this works for a dynamic security group

    This would be a massive feature for us so that we can create a dynamic security group for external users then just have that group assigned to the clients role, so that we do not have to maintain the clients role programmatically
