  1. Add integration with "Let's Encrypt"

    Let's Encrypt offers low cost certificate authority services. They would be a great resource to integrate with for use in Azure Web Apps among other Azure services.

        • Emailing service - Not third party

          An emailing service (like Amazon Simple Email Service, https://aws.amazon.com/en/ses/) would be nice.

          The Third-Party options available (like SendGrid) while excellent as services, can be overkill (and pricey) if you just want to send simple HTML mails related to some trigger or user event.

          • Restrict access to list of IP addresses

            It should be possible to restrict access to Azure Key Vaults based on a whitelist of IP addresses to further increase security. We only want to have access to the Key Vaults from within Azure and from our company IP address.

            All other requests should be blocked and logged.

            • FTP as a service

              FTP is used a log for integration. It's often a common need and a common customer request. I would like to have an FTP/FTPS offering that would be HA & Auto scalable (with several pricing tier).
              - A simple one with basic security : should cover most need (TLS / encryption at rest)
              -A more advanced one maybe with Azure AD integration

              Storage should be HA (Using Azure Blob or Azure Files).
              I would like just to have a PaaS service and do not care about the infrastructure.

              Future feature like : Integration to Azure Network, Private endpoint (no public endpoint exposed), can come after.
              With…

              • Payment Gateway as Service in Azure

                If not all applications, most applications need some sort of credit card processing for payments. Since credit card information is sensitive, it will be nice to have a out of the box solution available in Azure (people implicitly trust Microsoft) so that people can use it in their applications (azure websites or otherwise).

                • Integrated Certificate Service

                  Buying, managing and configuring Certificates is a hassle. It would be great if you could cut a Certificate from the Azure Certificate service directly.
                  Optionally have it adjust your configuration to make the proper changes for it's use.

                    • ability to filter our 401 Failed Requests in Application Insights

                      When monitoring an application that uses NT Auth 401 request failures are expected because it is part of the authentication process. But it makes it really hard to find real failed requests because their are so many 401 failures in the failed request section.

                        It should be possible to pin a custom app insights chart to the home page. Or at least customize the app insights blade for a site with a set of custom charts.

                        • Please Consider User Interface for Azure Key Vault

                          Come on, team! What's this PowerShell/CLI nonsense. You know you work for a company that created WINDOWS, right?!?! Using a CLI is difficult, error-prone, and a nasty way of development. It is the very reason why WINDOWS was created!

                          Look, I get the convenience of automation and etc, but let's not forget our roots here, right team?! WINDOWS AND PRETTY INTERFACES FOR EVERY DEVELOPER!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

                              • Persist Time Range Selection

                                Currently my time range selection is not persisted, even within the same resource or resource group. Once clicking back from a detail blade the time range reverts back to 24 hours. This greatly impedes troubleshooting in an alerting scenario. May be a bug but necessary to have for production troubleshooting.

                                • Portal support for CORS configuration

                                  Hi - I need to configure CORS on our storage accounts, but I can't find a way to do that using the Portal. I also downloaded the Python SDK, but it doesn't seem to be supported there yet (where is detailed documentation on this SDK? I can't find the right link to it from http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/python/ and ended up just searching the python code itself).

                                  Also the "related ideas" on the left here don't draw right in Chrome. I can only read the last few words of each.

                                  • Design a restricted runtime model so small short-lived services can be deployed with less latency.

                                    I would like to be able to rely on Azure to run very short but highly parallel jobs that might, say, consume 1000 CPUs for 30 seconds each. Startup costs make this prohibitive.

                                    Consider how useful this would be for the problem of doing a custom semantic web search, or searching through a large configuration space of some simply defined problem for the configuration which yields the highest utility.

                                      I have installed the browser script but I want to block certain items it sends to the app insights like the pagename. Can this be done? (for security reason not everything can be sent)

                                      • Offer RabbitMQ as PaaS

                                        It would be awesome if you supported RabbitMQ similar way you do for ServiceBus.

                                        • DNS Service

                                          Please add a dns service to Microsoft Azure. Because it's a very essential part of any public cloud (in my opinion). And a lack of is it pretty much the only reason to keep me using azure (I'm currently using AWS)!
