  1. Import VM List (CSV/Excel) into Pricing Calculator

    Estimating the appropriate Azure VM T-Shirt sizes for migration or ASR planning would be easier if we could import a CSV or Excel file that contained the minimum required info to determine the initial VM sizes and prices. Without using Azure Migrate, or another data collection tool, I understand the performance factor based on workload could not be accurately identified, but it would provide a good starting point for organizations that need this info quickly, or are unable to run additional tools on-premises. Also including a filter to prioritize the workload generically (Compute-Intensive, Memory-Intensive, Disk-Intensive, etc.) could help to further…

  2. Detailed billing

    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.

    Thanks,

  3. credit card

    is it really necessary to ask for a credit card to try a product ? I don't like it the idea of worrying for another place I've given my financial information to, maybe this is a poor choice from the team that is responsible for putting this product on the market ! whatever it is, I hope this will get fixed and more possible future clients will have the possibility to try this without worrying about credit cards and such.

  4. Azure Price calculator to show EA agreement prices

    We find the Azure price calculator very usefull (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/), however it provide the "list" prices and not our own EA discounts. One option is to build our own calculator but I assume that will be a costly development project so the question is: Is there any plan to make the price calculator "tuned" with our coroprate prices. E.g that we can logon with our AzureAD credentials and then get the correct prices?

    Or alternative solution, that the export from the price calculator to Excel inlcude the part-number (and service name) so we can do some macro in Excel…

  5. Recognize valid zip codes

    Your signup page does not recognize valid zip codes and will does not an account to be created with what it incorrectly describes as an invalid zip code.

    Also, if my zip code is the invalid piece of data on the form, why do the credit card number and CVV fields get blanked out while the "invalid" zip code is left in place? Only the information deemed invalid should be removed from the form.

  6. Allow users to remove themselves from subscriptions

    I would like the ability to remove my account from an Azure subscription. As a consultant, I use my Microsoft account to gain access to client Azure subscriptions. At the end of the engagement, it can sometimes prove difficult to have them remove my account. I would like the ability to remove my account from a subscription without having to get someone else to do it. This would provide a huge benefit when accessing the portal as well as using Azure PowerShell.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow all Billing Administrators to update payment methods

    Only the account creator can update the payment method. This is really limiting when there are payment issues with a CC. Our billing administrator cannot update it. And co-administrators or others with full admin access can update it. Only the creator. This is very limiting and makes managing the account challenging. AWS lets me do this!

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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).

  14. 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.

  15. Block subscription creation policy for non-global admin users (MPN Agreement)

    Users that are not global admin or are in restricted groups, should not be able to create any new subscriptions under the main tenant.
    Specially if this tenant is under a MPN agreement.

  16. 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".

    DOUBLE BUG!

  17. Azure Developer Support Invoices NOT Accessible by our Administration Billing Reader

    Issue: Azure Developer Support Invoices Accessible by our Administration Billing Reader

    Currently our Administration, responsible for paying invoices cannot access the Developer Subscription Invoices.

    Meaning, every month our Administration is depended on IT, to manually download the invoices and send them by mail.

    There are three solutions:
    Either bring the Developer Support Invoices to the new portal.azure.com
    or
    Give us Accessibility to Manage Permissions on
    https://account.azure.com/Subscriptions
    or
    Having the option to assign an e-mailaddress to the Developer Support Invoices and send the invoices automaticly to the supplied e-mailadres.

    Please Resolve This!

    Thanks

    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.
