  3. Registering to Azure (free) services without Credit/Debit card check

    Currently Azure provides a good amount of services for free which will benefits a lot of developers all around the world specially countries like Iran.

    Being a developer in Iran which I believe is one of the biggest consumer of Microsoft products like Windows and Windows Phone and also one of the cheapest out sourcing centers for other countries like Australia and European countries it would be great to be able to register with Azure and use its services like Web Apps, Application Insights, Mobile Services,... for personal use or for out sourced projects.

    My suggestion is to offer a…

  4. Expose Partner of Record information in PowerShell for Azure subscriptions and Office 365

    Currently we need to use the web interface to see and update the PoR information for Azure subscriptions and for Office 365 license subscriptions.

    At a minimum, it would be handy to see that information in the details of Get-AzureSubscription and Get-MsolSubscription
    That way, we can easily see if any of them need to be fixed without needing to go into each one individually.

    Obviously the follow-up on that would be to add the ability to set the information.

    Thanks.

  5. Change subscription from CSP to pay-as-you-go

    Once you setup your Azure infrastructure using a CSP subscription, you are unable to move the billing to a credit card pay-as-you go subscription. This definitively needs to be fixed!

  6. Option to consolidate invoices of multiple subscriptions

    As a company with multiple business streams, each responsible for their costing, we need to use separate "Subscription" in order to see their Azure costs clearly. For Finance department to process payment, however, it'll save admin work if can consolidate all subscription charge in ONE invoice.

  7. Allow Alerting on All Limits / Quotas

    Every limit or quota in azure should be listed on the usage + quotas page (or possibly a new page since this is more comprehensive). Users should be able to easily set alert notifications on any of this limits/quotas. Consider something like a checkbox to enable each limit/quota with a an option to override the percentage the alert fires at. Possibly default to 75%. Customers are frequently caught off guard by some limit they didn't even know existed (e.g. Max number of Role Assignments or API calls per hour). When users first log onto azure we should guide them through…

  9. To re-generate Previous invoice with updated details

    Can you please have some solution to re-generate previous Invoice with updated details.

    For example: When we update the Company Name after the last Invoice generated, we have to wait till next Invoice to get that New company name reflected which does not make sense.

    This usually affects the Business since we cannot make payment with Incorrect Company name which will ultimately Suspend our services.

    Please TREAT this Feedback as URGENT and have some solution on this ASAP.

    Thanks

  10. Resources names into invoice description

    There isn’t any way to match the Azure Platform resources names with the row-items into the invoice. In my view that is a basic invoice functionality because for us and many other companies have the needed of sharing and apply cloud costs by departments and for that the related identiffications is a must. Also if we work as a MSSP (in fact we do) using Azure Platform to identify each client cost by resources group.

  11. Improvement of EA portal

    Currently once the administrator sets "AO view charges" Enabled, every Account Owner come to be able to view the all charges of every subsections.

  12. Make it possible to transfer an MSDN (BizSpark) benefits subscription from one account to another

    When I first created my Azure account and attached the MSDN benefit to it, I used my Windows LiveID. Subsequently, I created a second Azure account using my Organizational login from Office 365 so that we could take advantage of the 365 Azure AD integration. I called support, but they said the benefit cannot be transferred until the new account has been empty for 90 days. Since we're using the new account for production, this is not possible for us. Please address the technical limitation which is causing this situation.

  13. History of billing and consumptions is lost when you transfer your Azure Plan from one CSP Indirect provider to another

    History of billing and consumptions is lost when you transfer your Azure Plan from one CSP Indirect provider to another
    After analyzing several cases, we have suffered many complaints from end-customers and CSP reseller of losing the data prior to the transfer. It is a huge mistake to lose information due to an administrative handover that causes great problems for users who use Azure Cost Management intensively.

    It should be considered that these data are available once the azure PLan subscription is transferred.

  14. Azure Pass - Sponsorship Time Limit Extension

    As someone who has received sponsorship credit, it would be nice if the time limit was a minimum of 3 months (or even the default of 12 that other services get). A month to try out things for someone who does not use Azure day in/day out is not long to fully use the subscription credits.

  15. Better signup error messages

    I've heard from many of my peers that Azure signup often results in frustrating generic error messages. I myself have seen the same, strings like: "I'm sorry we could not complete this operation." I've also heard of the screen just hanging.

    I understand that unexpected errors do happen, but please invest in more actionable error messages and reduced error frequency. I doubt I'm alone in receiving a poor first impression of Azure.

    Apologize for the unexpected charge. We are working on making it very clear when you will be charged for a service. (especially for non-Microsoft offerings such as MySQL DB, that are allowed to be created through Azure Marketplace) Please open a support ticket to resolve the unexpected charge.

  18. Ability to change or add a new onmicrosoft.com domain or rename your existing one

    It would be nice to rename the assigned onmicrosoft.com account that I was assigned as it seems to be based on my username/email. I don't have an actual domain name that I plan to use, so it would be nice if I could have something meaningful.

  19. Harmonize the offer types (CSP/Open/EA/PAYG)

    CSP is a great purchasing model for small and medium businesses, but has some serious problems.

    1) Migrating between CSP and any other offer is a very laboursome and expensive project (not to mention that many resources cannot be migrated). This can cause Vendor lock-in and some other major risks for customers using CSP. Currently even PAYG to CSP is not easy.

    2) CSP customers are unequal to other Azure users despite the fact that they pay the same or sometimes even more, because they do not have the same services available to them.

    3) CSP resellers have to put…
