  1. Please allow the removal of 'Inactive' accounts that had no prior usage in the EA Portal.

    Currently there is no way to remove an 'Inactive' account in the EA Portal, there is only the option to select the 'active' checkbox which hides any inactive accounts from view. It would be nice to have a feature where we can remove any 'Inactive' accounts that had no prior usage in the EA Portal.

  2. Microsoft Azure Sponsorship - add usage tracking

    It would be great to be able to track usage of Microsoft Azure Sponsorship (MAS) subscriptions within Azure Portal, just as I can do it in PayG and EA subscriptions. Also, as of now only the Acoount Admin of the subscription can see the current usage (using a dedicated website, with UX far from being useful), no Billing Admin role or equivalent permission. We would like to have a single group of Azure Admins tracking usage of all our subscriptions, no matter what kind of program they are part of (PayG, CSP, EA, MAS, other). Moreover, I'd like to set…

    We need Azure Playground to learn Azure hands-on for free. Make easy for Professionals to learn Azure and let them be Azure product advocate.

    Making most efficient system won't serve the purpose if there are lack of sophisticated training. We pour years learning Microsoft technologies and be promoter of Microsoft products. We can go to competition, learn their products and promote them but we are staying and writing this feedback just to make sure we are heard.

  4. Don't allow subscriptions to be "orphaned" from Azure billing!

    I'm dealing with a situation where recently I tried to go into billing (after years of normal service and no problems) and your server claimed that there are no subscriptions for my MS account. I filed a support request: Your support engineer said that my Azure subscription has become orphaned! What??!! Yes, he claims that the Outlook-based MS account is no longer associated with the Azure subscription. He asked me if I've made changes to the account. "No ... I haven't made any changes." He claimed the credit card is still attached to the subscription, which explains why I was…

  5. Allow us to alias the subsciption name from within the Azure Portal

    The Azure Portal currently lists the subscription names in their raw, original format. And, while, in terms of the subscription itself, these represent billing boundaries for Azure...they "can" also represent other logical boundary-containers, as well. As such, I would like to be able to alias each subscription in order to make separating object creation into their logical boundaries a "no brainer".

    Example 1:
    I have 2 subscriptions. In one, I put VNets, VM's, Service Buses and other things that I see as common or more "architectural" in nature. In another, I put Web Sites, Cloud Services and databases that I…

    Thanks for the feedback. Yes, you can rename subscriptions from the Account portal today. It sounds like you need a better way to organize your resources, tho. We’ll look into this.

  6. Include the "created timestamp" with a subscription object

    It would be VERY handy to have a timestamp of when the SaaS subscription was first created (especially for subscriptions with "PendingFulfillmentStart" status).

  7. allow other users to download invoices from Government subscriptions

    Currently only the account administrator role can download invoices for a government subscription. It would be useful to allow other Azure AD users to have this ability. We have a fiscal user who would like to get these invoices without me having to manually give them to him.

  8. Azure price calculator should be able to calculate less than 100 users for Windows Virtual Desktop

    Azure price calculator should be able to calculate less than 100 users for Windows Virtual Desktop

    It is currently not possible to charge less than 100 users for the product "Windows Virtual Desktop" in the Azure price calculator. For many Microsoft partners who advise companies that need less than 100 WVD-Seats it is difficult to calculate the price.

  9. Resource group level invoice over email

    It would be great feature to have option to setup email invoice option on resource group level.

    Since big organization provide only resource group level access to projects. It becomes difficult to accumulate resource group wise monthly billing.

    A option of invoice on resource group to recipients would love to have

  10. DOUBLE-BUG: Allow to Retry Failed SMS Number! Cannot enter SMS code.

    SMS messages were backed up on my mobile provider.
    After several tries not receving the SMS, they finally came thru.

    But now you won't let me use the same number.
    So i cannot validate!

    "We’re unable to validate your phone number
    Phone validation is required to confirm your identity and complete signup. Reenter your SMS verification code, or try again with a different phone number."

    If i click "Reenter your SMS verification code" you do NOT allow me to "Reenter my SMS verification code".

    Great feedback. In fact we are working constantly on creating new offers to address concerns like these. We will likely have an offer in the near future which addresses the fact that Azure has a learning curve.

  15. Make it easier to move subscriptions between Admin Accounts in EA portal

    The EA management portal is very archaic and confusing.

    There needs to be a way to move subscriptions between different accounts because what inevitably happens is as users start testing Azure using their LIVE accounts, and then move to an EA, there are subscriptions that IT depts want to move to real Org accounts. We don't like accounts linked to personal LIVE accounts.

    The fact that a user could have a LIVE account and an ORG account with the same login ID is totally confusing.

    Apologies for the delay in response. The Azure billing team was recently reorganized with a renewed focus on building the billing experiences customers expect from us. The new team is excited to re-engage with the community and address gaps such as the one you’ve highlighted. This feature should light up fairly soon.

    Show each virtual machine from a Cloud Service as its own line within the detailed bill.

  17. Allow registering different VAT numbers per subscription

    It's now possible to have different invoice addresses for different subscriptions. I thought this meant I could now set up a separate subscription for each of my customers and set the invoice to be sent directly to them.

    Unfortunately, with the VAT rules in the EU that doesn't work as I would have to set the customer's VAT number for each subscription. The VAT number now is specified globally on the account level.

    I would like VAT number and company name fields to be available as part of the invoice address and if specified, they should override whatever is set…

  18. to accept debit card in India as well for creating Azure account

    I was trying to setup a free trial Azure account in India but Azure won't accept my HDFC platinum debit card which supports recurring payments all too well. As far as I know, both AWS and GCP do accept debit cards. Why not Azure?

  19. Allow me to configure a backup payment method

    Am I the only one nervous about expiring or renewed credit cards? If a credit card expires and for some reason or other our Azure admin fails to head the notices, we're potentially risking huge data loss? I have no idea what grace period Microsoft will supply to rectify billing problems but sure wouldn't want to risk this!

    With Google Adwords and services like PayPal I can specify two payment methods and use one as a backup. It would be great to see something similar in Azure.

  20. Control switching from tenant by subscription owners

    When implementing a subscription model, business units or clients want to be owner of their subscriptions.

    When a subscription owner creates an Azure active directory, they can change their subscription to that tenant. this results in a few things

    • Role assignments are deleted so the subscription becomes invisible to out admins (and automated controls).
    • Inherited policies through management groups do not apply anymore.
    • VNET peering are not destroyed. (so rogue subscriptions without policies are peered to our trusted network)
    • If a subscription owner switches Tenants and then switches back, the subscription re-enters the Azure management groups hierarchy back under tenant…
