  1. 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…

  2. Invoicing with UBL/PEPPOL

    Microsoft currently sends their customers invoices in PDF-format. This is not an ideal format for processing by bookkeeping software.

    Please send invoices in the UBL-format (.xml files) as well, which is a format that is optimized for automated processing of invoices. Ideally, you could send these invoices through the secured PEPPOL-network, with which your customers receive the invoices directly in their bookkeeping software, instead of getting them by email.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to up-vote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  3. Virtual and prepaid cards

    The tip is to insert virtual and prepaid cards as a means of payment. This is a new trend here in Brazil

  4. Subscription level resource utilization monitoring and alerts.

    Currently there is no method by which you may easily monitor the utilization or last use of a particular resource within a subscription.
    This is a common ask that I have seen for the platform, especially when it comes to the monitor space.
    I would like to propose either a method by which we may set an alert for resources that have not been accessed within the last 30 days, or to be able to set an alert based on utilization within a given time frame based on percentage.

  5. "We're making changes to the customer experience and Azure subscriptions are not currently available in Russia."

    Guys, you couldn't really make better advertisement to other cloud services (AWS, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud Platform) by saying me that phrase.

    I applaud your "friendly and available to everyone" cloud services.

  6. Transfer subscription ownership while keeping the settings of service admin and co-admins

    When we transfer subscription ownership between Microsoft accounts, the settings of service admin and co-admin(s) in the source subscription are reset. Especially, if the source subscription has multiple co-admins, it takes a lot of effort to recover them. So, we want to perform it while keeping them.

    <Japanese>
    Microsoft アカウント間でサブスクリプションの譲渡を行った場合、移行元のサブスクリプションのサービス管理者と共同管理者の設定がリセットされてしまいます。特に移行元のサブスクリプションに複数の共同管理者が設定されている場合、再設定するのは非常に大変なので、移行元のサービス管理者と共同管理者のアカウント情報を保持したまま、サブスクリプションの譲渡を出来るようにして欲しい。

  7. Specify the time span to other time zones except UTC in Usage API

    When using Usage API now, we can only specify the time span to UTC.
    As a result, in other time zones, when we want to compare the pricing value between the API and Azure portal, we have to check the value at midnight. (A time zone which is + 8 hour or more will not be midnight, but we have to check it eary in the morning)

    Therefore, it will be better if we can specify a time zone except UTC or a time span except 0:00 ~ 0:00. (We can only specify 0:00 ~ 0:00 if we set the…

  9. REST API for accessing Azure Pricing details

    Currently, there is no option to access Azure Pricing information programmatically. Definitely, the Pricing Calculator UI is user friendly and is easy to use. However, if one needs to access the same information for creating custom reports or doing planning, then need to switch to the Pricing Calculator, do the math and update it manually in the in house built tools/reports. A best example is the AWS' Price List API (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/awsaccountbilling/latest/aboutv2/price-changes.html). Could we get a similar API for Azure Pricing?

  10. Allow me to choose Azure Active Directory for new Azure Subscriptions.

    When we create new subscriptions for existing or new customers, there is no prompt to associate them to an existing Azure Active Directory.

    Every one of our new customers comes to us with multiple subscriptions and multiple Azure Active Directories (the record so far was 7 subscriptions across 3 directories). They always have annoying default names such as myemailcom.onmicrosoft.com, because there is no option to specify the name.

    The ridiculously annoying algorithm takes the user's email address, removes the @ and . signs, and concatenates the remaining string. So myname@company.com would result in an Azure Active Directory called mynamecompanycom.onmicrosoft.com.

  11. It would be EXTREMELY helpful if users could make MANUAL payments. More control over billing would be helpful.

    I never know when you will try to charge my card. It always varies, especially when the 1st attempt fails. It would be extremely helpful if there was a way to make a manual payment. This is a feature that many of your competitors offer, do you anticipate improvements? It would really help with our cash flow management.

    Hi there,

    We have started working on a feature to enable the immediate settling of payments, which I believe lines up with what you are asking for. We don’t have an ETA as of yet, but we will update this space as information comes in.

  12. Possibility to get information about 'credits left' with powershell on a subscription

    There is no possibility to get status of the left credits on our Azure in Open subscriptions
    It would be great if it would be possible to get this information because we have many partner subscriptions and need to get information about left credits quite often, now we do it manually without possibility to create a script.

  13. Should NOT have to use a credit card for a FREE account

    We should NOT have to use a credit card for a FREE account. If it's not actually free then why in the world would a credit card be used.

  14. you are not eligible for an azure account

    When I tried to create a pay-as-you-go subscription, it said "you are not eligible for an azure account" and "We couldn't create an Azure account for you."
    Could you tell me why?

  15. Delete Azure Active Directory fails because of active subscriptions

    A lot of users cannot delete their directories because of O365 or Azure Premium trial subscriptions. Most of the time, users are creating test directories with trial subscriptions in order to try Azure before going with a project launch. When trying to delete the directory it will fail because of the trial subscriptions that the user activated and the user cannot delete the subscription on its own. Users should be allowed to delete their subscriptions (at least the trial ones).

  17. Allow multiple users to be able to add credit for Azure in Open subscription

    Only Account Administrator is currently allowed to Add Credit to Azure in Open subscription. It is extremely limiting and risky to have such low bus-factor.
