  1. Impossible to filter the Azure REST API SKU information

    When query the Azure REST API to retrieve SKU information with the following URL
    https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/{SubscriptionId}/providers/Microsoft.Compute/skus?api-version=2017-09-01
    This query currently return around of 574000 lines and 6,18 Mb.
    This API query can't be used as a dataSourceBinding in a DevOps task definition, because a response size limitation exists.

  2. Support for Teams & SFB on Windows Virtual Desktop

    With the release of Windows Virtual desktops on Azure, the multisession W10 offering does not support either of the Collaboration Tools, SFB or Teams. The support of these office apps with pass through support for peripherals is vital to make this offering viable. Please can this be looked at and delivered when the service goes public on Azure

  3. Windows Virtual Desktop - User Assigned Personnel Desktop

    In WVD enable the feature to assign a user to a personnel Session Host in PowerShell and the WVD Web UX

    This will allow users to pre-assign users to their own VDI host in Azure that can be pre-staged with the apps that user will need, giving more flexibility to the WVD Service.

  4. virtual machine list export to csv

    When we go to All resources we can see Export to CSV button on top menu so that all the resources can be downloaded easily.

    When we go to Virtual Machine there is no such functionality available.
    There are lots of scripting needs to be done to achieve this and also previously we use to be able to copy and paste it into excel and it used to copy all the columns which we've selected. But that too isn't working now.

    Can you please give us the functionality to export the VM details into CSV

  5. Virtual Machine Console Access Part Deux

    The previous post suggesting the addition of basic VM functionality was inappropriately marked "completed" serial console was added.

    The serial console is better than nothing, but just barely, and was not at all what was being requested by that post.

    What we need is a equivalent of the VMware Remote Console.

  6. Add ability to set VM resolution on creation

    VM resolution by default is 1024 x 768

    We use the VM's to run automation on a desktop application which requires a larger resolution to appear correctly.

    Please add the ability to set a default resolution on creation.

    Appreciate there are still limits on a VM resolution but should allow the freedom we need upto the limits.

    We currently use a workaround with RDPwrap but this is far from ideal and does not work in all circumstances.

    Providing the requested feature would eliminate a huge pain point and provide a much needed improvement to our user experience.

  7. Notification for the capacity for requested VM size

    It is quite critical that we could receive the notification for running out of the requested VM size.
    In our customer, the allocation failure was happened in the following critical scenarios:
    • Restoring VM in Azure Backup
    • Failover in ASR
    • Starting VM
    Getting that notification earlier, they can avoid the error by considering another size.

  8. Show VM shutdown timestamp on portal

    Customer always need to query vm shotdown timestamp. It would be convenient for users to view the time on portal directly.

  9. Allow update of gallery image for VMSS

    When referencing a custom image in a VMSS from a Shared Image Gallery (Preview), it cannot be updated to refer to a new image. This results in an error code "PropertyChangeNotAllowed".

    Today, a VMSS can be updated to a new image reference when it references a managed image that does not reside in a Shared Image Gallery.

  10. Save ssh public key in azure profile

    When creating a Linux virtual machine in Azure, there is a choice of authentication type between password and ssh public key. When selecting the ssh public key, I have to paste in my public key. Everytime, I do this, I have to look up my public key, and cut and paste it into the dialog box. Please allow us to store multiple keys within our azure profile, and simply select the keys (plural) we wish to have included in the authorized-keys file.

  13. You really gotta fix those machines.. If Paperspace has AIR machine with graphics card, 4 GB RAM, 2cores processor, hardware

    Thanks, dear.. You really gotta fix those machines.. If Paperspace has AIR machine with graphics card, 4 GB RAM, 2cores processor, hardware encoding, for 18$ flat price.. AZURE should have 4 high performance processors for 3$, + 4 GB RAM + 3$, + Storage usage + 0.10 cent per GB :)

  14. Offer granular RBAC for virtualMachine serial console access

    As confirmed via Support Case 119052326000457 there is one, and only one method, to grant access to a VM's serial console, which is to obtain the Virtual Machine Contributor role which may be a lot more privileged than an individual may need to do their job.

    Within our organization it is important to follow the principles of least privilege wherever feasible. As such we want to be able to grant a support team access to a VM's serial console without that same team being able to make IaaS config changes to the VM (shutdown, reconfigure, etc.). This would help prevent…

  15. Keep an audit log of commands run using "run command"

    Currently, the script and its output are stored locally on the VM. A subsequent "run command" could erase or modify this information, creating a security issue with root/administrator access being possible without an audit trail of what was done. Because the names of these files are predictable, a "run command" job could even modify or remove its own job records, a related, but slightly different security issue.

    My suggestion is to store the script contents and output within an Azure blob so that we could restrict the ability to modify information about what was run and its output.

  16. VMs KVM Console. VMs console access without RDPing to IP or Public IP.

    It is important to have VMs console access through console without RDPing to IP or Public IP. E.g if a user wants to run ISO Image at the time of boot.

  17. resize VM without reboot

    Currently if you want to change the VM Size of Azure, VM is restarted. VM Resize shouldn't require downtime and it should be done in the backend. As CPU and RAM is still throttle when we use more resources then why can't we just remove the throttling limit and inform customer that VM is resized from A to D series when request is raised of resize?

  18. Thin provisioned disks. Reduce the size of a disk

    I do not like the fact there are no thin provisioned disks.

    Moreover you can not even reduce the size of the disk

    I do not like these supposed "gotchas" which can cost a lot more money

    127GB standard for a O/s drive for example is a complete overkill

    I will also explore whether defaults can be changed for such things as location so things do not point to the US if you are based in the UK for example. Instructor today told me no in training.

  19. I suggest you make Azure less complicated

    , let users supply their own iso's with simple user interface and let users deploy their linux vm with a simple user interface like the way vmware is setup. I dont have to pick a group or container, I don't need this or that I just need the vmware software and an iso. That's why Linux and Microsoft have had such a difficult history of co op, linux is simple and straight forward little bells and whistles, Microsoft just adds layer and layer and layers of junk.

  20. (Linux + d2_v2 + dedicated) Why not on Azure China ?

    This link could lead you to think we may have it.
    https://docs.azure.cn/zh-cn/virtual-machines/linux/
    The same way we have it with Azure Global.
    But no! Why is that Microsoft cannot have a standard offer and impose its subcontractors (here 21Vianet) to match the Standard?
    My coffees at Starbucks and Costa in Shanghai respect the respective standards.
    Thank you to urge this matter as we are now forced to consider AWS just to host our VMs with Ubuntu.
