  1. Enable Soft Delete in Azure Data Lake Gen2

    You can turn on the Soft Delete option in Blob Storage, but not when it's got the ADLS Gen2 box checked. Please make this available in the ADLS Gen2 storage accounts. We just had an accidental deletion of a top-level folder in the container and it couldn't be restored by the MS engineers even with the geo-replication going.

    The current limitation of 30 server endpoints per server is a deal-breaker, we have 56 endpoints and cannot migrate to azure without completely changing our directory structure

  3. Alerts for expiring SAS key and storage account expiry

    Since we can't automatically renew SAS keys then we should be able to set alerts when a key or storage account comes close to expiry.

  4. Instant Search support for Azure Files Shares within Windows

    When searching a file share hosted on Windows Server with Window Search Indexing enabled from a Windows client you get instant search results back from a search query in Windows Explorer.

    When searching a file share hosted on Azure Files the search results return slowly as the search operation searches through the folders one by one.

    It would be great to have instant search on Azure Files Shares so that files share can be lifted and shifted from Windows Servers and still have the same end user experience.

  5. LDAPS Support for Azure NetApp Files

    Please enable LDAPS support for Azure NetApp Files, as we (assuming like many) currently run 2019 Domain Controllers in the cloud, and adhere to best practice configuration. But that now means were unable to connect and use this new service due to the lack of its support for LDAPS.

  6. Add ARM as trusted Service in Storage Account Firewall.

    Please add "Azure Resource Manager(ARM) template deployment service" as Trusted Service in Storage Account Firewall services. Right now when we add IP restrictions and "Allow trusted Microsoft services", the ARM Template deployment fails when it attempts to get the keys for the storage account, because ARM is not added as Trusted Service in Storage Account Firewall.

  7. Option to whitelist all internal data center IP addresses

    Currently there is no way to whitelist all of the internal IP addresses used in a data center. This means that if you have an Azure function app running in the same data center as your storage account, you will be IP restricted.
    Can we get a check box added in the "Firewalls and virtual networks" section that whitelists all IPs used by the data center that the storage account is hosted in?
    Thanks!

  8. azcopy with move feature from on premise to Azure Blob Storage

    Hi Team,
    Thanks for having such a great tool.
    I've one concern, This just copies the data and does not delete the data from source. This feature was available in older version of azcopy but was removed because someone tried to do the azcopy from multiple machines and it deleted the source data as one of the move operation had succeeded.
    Can you implement this feature once again. as we've setup task scheduler to copy the data to azure blob for archiving purpose and have to verify the data and then delete the source files once manual verification is completed.

  9. SFTP (and FTPS) protocol support for Azure Files

    Exposing the SFTP protocol would facilitate a bunch of scenarios where today 2 VMs (with all the management overhead that implies) are required.

    Thanks for the feedback! We are interested in collecting feedback on this request – please vote for it if this is something you like to see.

    We’re also interested in learning more what people want to use the SFTP/FTPS for and which protocol they prefer. Please feel free to leave us a comment letting us know more detail!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries

  11. Install MSI from azure file UNC path

    If you install an MSI from an Azure file storage SMB you need to map it on a drive. If you do not map it the MSI will result in an MSI error 1619 “This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor the verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package”. We like to install MSI directly from the UNC path.

  13. Worm compliance at object level

    Please add a feature to support WORM policies at object level. Currently it's only supporting at container level. This has very potential and AWS already has this feature supporting at both object and bucket level.

  14. Accept-Ranges: bytes header

    Blob storage REST API supports returning partial responses when a Range header is included in the HTTP request

    Blob storage however doesn't provide 'Accept-Ranges: bytes' in the response headers for GET nor HEAD requests, which would indicate to the client/browser that the server supports these types of requests.

    Documented here:
    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/Accept-Ranges

    Http spec here:
    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7233#section-2.3

    Please add 'Accept-Ranges: bytes' to the headers of Blob Storage REST API responses

  15. Allow access based enumeration on Azure Files

    When using an Azure Fileshare, with folders synced from a Windows Server 2019 file server share, the user can see folders he is not allowed to access.
    With access based enumeration, a Windows File Server can hide the folders from the user in Explorer. Azure Files has no setting for this and does not hide folders.

  16. enable offline generation of thumbnails for Azure Fileshares that are syncing via Azure File Sync

    Azure file shares syncing with on-prem file servers and tiering rules are great for reducing our storage needs, but image files only generate thumbnails over network shares when the file is downloaded to the server. The thumbnail then persists even if the file is then tiered away.

    If you're logged on directly to the server thumbnails appear even though the file stays offline.

    Please either generate and update thumbs.db files automatically or provide a script to download files without thumbnails, update the thumbs.db, and then re-tier the file.

    Lack of thumbnails is causing serious issues with using tiered file shares…

  17. Add Locking to Azure file share

    It's too easy to delete a file share from the portal. Whilst the storage account itself can have a delete lock it doesn't apply to the actual share.
    Need to have locks available at the file share level.

  18. Add special ParquetBlobStorage allowing filtering

    Parquet is de facto standard for storing big data.

    However we usually do not need all date stored in parquet hive/files.

    It would be great if there were ParquetBlobStorage - extension of BlobStorage that:

    a) would understand parquet format i.e. in order to read schema it will read only end of the file

    b) allow selective column/row reading - no need to copy full blob when we need just couple columns or group of row.

  20. Enable life cycle management for append blob

    Currently life cycle management is only supported for block blob. We are using Azure SQL DB auditing feature and this is creating huge amount of blob files.But these are of append blob type and that is not supported by life cycle management. Please provide support for append blob so that we can manage these log files properly.
