  1. 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…

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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…

  8. Increase api subscription creation limit (EA subscription creation API)

    Hi,

    Currently there is a limit of 50 subscriptions / enrollment account regarding subscription creation through the preview version of the EA subscription creation API.

    Is there any possibilty to increase this limit / enrollment account, or perhaps remove the limit?

  9. Show list prices on CSP Azure usage report

  10. Please remove popup message that requires customers from Ukraine to sign and send the Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement.

    Please remove the popup message displayed during Azure free trial registration:

    "Customers in Ukraine are required to print, sign and return to Microsoft the Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement (Agreement) promptly upon purchase of your subscription. If Microsoft has not received your signed, paper Agreement within three weeks after purchase, your subscription to the online service(s) will be terminated..."

  11. add searching on invoice number

    I quite often have to match expenses on our credit card bills with their Azure invoice counterparts.

    It would help immensely when I could just enter the invoice number, and the applicable invoice pops up.

    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.

  13. Billing tags

    Use tags on resource group level for billing in EA portal.
    Currently we have to tag all sources within a resource group for billing information in the EA portal. It would be more efficient if the tags on the resource group level are used in the reports

    This is great feedback and while we don’t have plans to include this on our roadmap in the near future, we will certainly follow up with the other stakeholders to determine the next steps to getting this feature supported.

  14. Remove PAN card requirement for Microsoft Imagine students in India

    Signing up for Azure in India requires a PAN card, which students signing up through Imagine do not have as it is only issued to majors with a source of income.

  17. Allow consumption of 3rd Party services under Enterprise Agreement

    Enterprise customers need a way to consume 3rd Party services like ClearDB's MySQL and Tinfoil Security's App Service Vulnerability Scanning. Ideally consumption of these services would be covered by EA funds as well.

    Hi Ben,

    Under your Enterprise Agreement you can purchase Marketplace (3rd party) products and services. These charges will be billed as an overage on either a monthly or quarterly basis.

    We have planned a feature to enable the use of your commitment dollars for the purchase of Marketplace but the timing is currently TBD.

    We appreciate your feedback.

  18. Change the Azure Sponsorship grants back to $5000 and offer the new $1500 program as an option

    Hi,
    I have been using your sponsorship program for the past 2 years and I have turned dozens of non-profits to it. I love what it has done for small non-profits. Recently I learned that you reduced the max donation annually from $5000 to $3500. This is has really hurt my non-profit plus others. You have added a new program subscription and removed $1500 for something that my non-profit and most small non-profits will never use because we are small. I can see some merits to the new $1500 program for a multi million dollar non-profit but $1500 is a…

  19. Prepaid credit card payment option

    Please enable pre-paid credit card payment option. One of my clients needs to purchase SQL Database from Azure. But I don’t have a credit card. Normally I using pre-paid credit card for online purchase. But Azure does not support prepaid credit card. This will reduce some customers from Azure. I think if this option will enable will get more customers.

    The goal will be to have a detailed view on which person deploy which virtual machine on Azure.
    It will be very helpful to have this to know which people/department deploy for example a SQL Server VM during X days

    This is a great suggestion, especially as we build out our role based access control capabilities. We don’t yet have firm timelines for when we can deliver this but we will add it to our backlog.
