Requested multiple times Microsoft has now released the usage of Javascript in Azure AD B2C custom policies.

Public preview: JavaScript and page contracts in Azure Active Directory B2C policies

This currently only works with custom policies from the Identity Experience Framework.

You need to select a different DataUri in your ContentDefinition by selecting an immutable package that won’t change during it’s lifetime.

See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-b2c/page-contract

After that you can add Javascript to your content, see the following page for details and some samples:

MIM 2016: New hotfix rollup build 4.5.286.0 available

MIM

Yesterday Microsoft released an important Hotfix rollup package for MIM 2016 SP1, the build number is 4.5.286.0.

InfoHotfix rollup package (build 4.5.286.0) is available for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 Service Pack 1

DownloadUpdate for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016 SP1 (KB4469694)

The main issue fixed is the following:

After installing MIM build 4.5.26.0 or 4.5.202.0, the ma-data objects are deleted and not recreated in the FIMService, causing all synchronization rules to fail.  After installing this update, this problem no longer happens.

Both builds causing the issue are still listed but not available for download any more. But if you installed one of the above hotfixes I highly recommend to update to the lastest hotfix.

The issue was also discussed here: MIM Portal Sync Rules have become orphaned

Azure PIM: Internal Server Error (500) using PIM Graph API

Azure Active Directory_COLOR

I have some implementation where I created a MIM PowerShell Connector for Azure PIM (Privileged Identity Management. This Connector imports on-Premises AD groups and transfers the members to Azure PIM role assignments.

A couple of days ago the scripts of that connector throw errors in my implementation as well as at a customer.

I tried to reach the following endpoints in Graph Explorer and even there I get an error:

Graph Explorer states the following error:

{
  "error": {
    "code": "UnknownError",
    "message": "{"message":"An error has occurred."}",
  "innerError": {
    "request-id": "16e184f8-86cb-4424-abff-4fd3ac4a010e",
    "date": "2018-11-12T12:40:15"
    }
  }
}

Azure AD group-based license management is now generally available

Azure Active Directory_COLOR

A long journey’s end: Azure AD group-based licensing is now GA!

Yeahhh !!!

See: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Azure-Active-Directory-Identity/Azure-AD-group-based-license-management-is-now-generally/ba-p/281355

  • Developer APIs in Microsoft Graph to allow you to programmatically read group-based licensing assignments on groups, as well as programmatically get assignment status and errors.
  • Ability to reprocess group-based licensing assignments for a single user.
  • Simplified licensing requirements for group-based licensing. Users who are targeted for group-based licensing need Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) Basic (and above), or Office 365 E3/A3 (and above).

So you need at least any paid Azure AD license to use GBL.

To start using group-based licensing, look at our Assign licenses to users by group membership in Azure AD documentation
