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:

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

AzureAD: Identity Governance with Access Requests and Entitlements

At Ignite Mark Wahl and Joseph Dadzie showed a very exciting new feature that will come up in the near future to manage access with entitlements and approvals for B2B user and employees.

It also will be possible to create a life-cycle on B2B accounts by auto-invite them if an employee from business grants those user an access by an entitlement and also removes or disables the user after expiration.

The key-points are:

  • B2B and employee access requests via a new user facing portal.
  • B2B and employee approval workflows for access
  • Access reviews of guests
  • Entitlement management (to hand over access control to business users)

Watch out their great session recording:
