We definitely recognize the popularity of this feature, and we discuss it constantly during the planning phases. However there are certain technical limitations in the system that add a large amount of development cost. Because of the cost and the fact that there is a workaround available, other features get prioritized over this one.
That being said, please keep voting for it. The popularity of the feature does help bring it up and makes us reconsider every time.
Apologies for the delay.
We’re doing some research both on the specifics of this ask as well as what it would take to support this.
Is the ask here to do the same thing that regular Azure AD does (see: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2014/12/18/azure-active-directory-now-with-group-claims-and-application-roles/) or is are there different requirements around this for Azure AD B2C?

Please reconsider adding this functionality. It's been 4 1/2 years since this request was opened and there is CLEARLY still a demand for this. How many votes do you need to make this a reality? And what workaround? I've been ******* my head against the wall for weeks trying to hack a workaround using Graph, but it's still an unnecessary thing to have to do when regular old AD supports this out of the box.
We have started working on this feature and hope to have another update by Oct 2018.
