  1. Add IP filtering

    Defining IP or range of IPs that are allowed / denied to contact the Service Bus would be very useful in complement with SAS authentication.

    • Detailed information about active listeners

      This has been suggested before -
      In comment here:
      https://feedback.azure.com/forums/216926-service-bus/suggestions/3695944-service-bus-relay-monitoring
      and here
      https://stackoverflow.com/questions/26118433/identify-a-azure-relay-servicebus-listener.

      It would be great to be able to identify active listeners on a particular relay. I've also heard this can be a issue in the WCF relay.

      I had a active listener in the portal (and eating all messages, with timeout), but not running my software anywhere. It would have been nice to see any insight to where it was running, f.x. IP address or machine name.

      • ServiceBus dedicated capacity at a lower cost

        The jump from shared to dedicated capacity is about $680.month -- this more than the monthly cost of my redundant AppService + ElasticPools combined.

        Perhaps a tier between Standard/Premium that offers dedicated capacity, but with a ops/month cost.

        This wouldn't be an issue, if it weren't for noisy neighbors and the only retry mechanism in the official SB client is a blocking call (thus halting any other work on that thread)

        • Number of messages on Topic subscription

          We have set up a Premium service bus for enterprise purposes where there are a lot of independent applications that subscribe to Topics. In many cases the applications ask how many messages there is on their subscription and its DLQ. So we wonder if it is on the roadmap to implement this kind of service where a vendor can know the number of messages just based on their Topic primary key (and connection string). Because to me it seems like it is not exploreable through Service Bus Explorer. It is only namespace keys that can be used for this monitoring…

              • refresh option is not available in service bus queue screen(Portal)

                refresh option is not available on a service bus queue screen which should be there.
                Because users have to refresh the page to see any message count changes which is not appropriate and when we refresh the page all running notifications disappears

                • Increase limit of SAS keys per namespace

                  Currently the number of SAS keys is limited to 12. We have many users who post messages to a single queue and would like to give every user a separate SAS key.

                  • Make Event Hub Capture Flexible

                    Right now event hub capture if very limited in terms of configuration. Making the following configurable would improve many use cases:

                    - Format: Allow the user to select the capture format. Avro as a default is not widely supported (e.g. in Data Analytics)

                    - Save Path: The event hub partition id is not a functional key, but the partition key is. Allowing the captured events to be saved to a path including the partition key (as opposed to the partition id) improves many query scenarios (query items in a partition). It would also help to be able to control the…

                    • Service Bus Built-in RBAC roles

                      Create a built-in RBAC role to define Contributors and Operators for the Azure Service Bus product. Most other Azure services have a role defined for them. For those trying to leverage Azure built-in roles, this is a gap that requires creating a custom role.

                      • Add support for the Get-AzureRmMetric cmdlet for Event Hub and Service Bus

                        As somebody who has to monitor our Event Hubs and Service Buses, I want a consistent and easy way to monitor the statistics of my Event Hubs and Service Buses so that I can more quickly setup alerts and dashboards. The current method requiring upload of a certificate and then querying the REST API is far too cumbersome, and using OMS is out of the question as it doesn't allow us to retain control of our data.

                        • Show the length of all available queues per namespace together under the overview Entities/Queues

                          We missed some properties in the new Azure Portal under ServiceBus Namespace/Entities/Queues ... at the moment you can view only status, max size, enable partitioning but we missed queue length like in the old portal and sometimes it's extremely useful to view the queue length of all available queues per namespace at once.

                            I'd like to be able to set an expiry timestamp and file name format, and have the Service Bus auto-archive my dead-lettered messages for me to an Azure Storage account container so that I don't have to worry about my Service Bus filling up.

                                • Add metric for removed duplicate messages.

                                  When the duplicate message detection is active, any detected duplicates are just removed. From a functional perspective this is absolutely fine, but from a non-functional perspective, it would be useful to be able to monitor how many duplicates that are actually detected. A rate would be fine, like X messages per minute.

                                      Allow messages to be posted directly to Subscription Queue. If any messgae processing errors due to downstream system and message ends up in DLQ of Subscription Queue, then to reprocess the same message using existing listener(SubscriptionClient), I want to send message to Subscription Queue.

                                      • Set time zone (offset) for event hubs archive

                                        Right now if I activate archive I can choose the path events are stored in three different ways, for example:

                                        {Year}/{Month}/{Day}/{Hour}/{Namespace}/{EventHub}/{PartitionId}/{Minute}/{Second}

                                        The problem is that the hour is not in the time zone we want in order to get more discoverability.

                                        So for instance, if I send an event at 23:00 (GMT -03), archive will store:

                                        2017/06/09/02/ (GMT)

                                        It could be useful if I can set the time zone upon archive activation.

                                        Thanks!
