  1. Simplify the process to add a CDN endpoint for Static Website (Preview)

    Hi Team,

    Our customer provided the useful feedback on adding a CDN endpoint for the Storage Static Website (Preview).

    The current process which set the origin type to custom domain and then use the domain https://example.z26.web.core.windows.net/ as the origin is a little confused for our customers.

    So it is better to add a feature to help our customer to add CDN endpoint for Static Website simply or provide instructions on the Azure Portal page to help our customer to follow the process.

      • Storage Account Events: Add Container delete notification (currently only blob delete notifications are available)

        You have Microsoft.Storage.BlobDeleted but thre is no "ContainerDeleted". This should be trivial to implement.

          • Greater Frequency for upload of files to Azure File Sync

            Syncing files more often than every 24 hours for Azure File Sync is a must.
            Anyone looking to use Azure File Sync will definitely want high availability access to their files. It is unnacceptible to lose access to a file created in the last 24 hours if a server were to fail. Without this feature, Azure File Sync is useless.

            • Make Blob access policies Azure Resource Manager managed

              In order to apply Azure Policies the item you want to control has to be ARM managed. Apparently Blob Access Policies are not ARM managed (i.e. resource that can be managed by calling https://management.azure.com/[ResourceId]). Because of this the Azure Policies product group can't make a policy alias to audit/deny the use of public containers/blobs, see: https://github.com/Azure/azure-policy/issues/131.

              This is a big issue because the use of anonymous access to storage containing enterprise data is a huge risk.

              • Allow internal access to a storage account in any regions from any Microsoft.Storage service endpoint without needing public internet access

                Currently Microsoft has confirmed to me that it is only possible to access storage accounts hosted in a specific location from an Azure VM via the Microsoft.Storage service endpoint without internet access but only if the VM is located in either the primary or secondary (backup replication site) storage account location.

                For example, if I create a blob container in US East 2 (secondary replication location: Central US) I will be able to access a blob (ex. https://someblobname.blob.core.windows.net/somefolder/someblob.txt) from a US East 2 or Central US VM via the storage service endpoint attached to the VMs VNet. However, I…

                • Azure File Event triggers for LogicApp / Event Grid

                  I would prefer Azure File Event triggers when a file is created, modified or deleted. This will help us for bridging using service bus for legacy applications that operate using files and modern applications. I am looking at a model where each legacy app will have its storage account and mapped on its server. Any files that downstream systems require will written to this storage and made available on the service bus topics; the files it needs to consume will be delivered to this storage.
                  <LegacyApp>\pub\<TopicName>
                  <LegacuApp>\sub\<TopicName>

                  • All common Microsoft services should be registered as "Trusted Microsoft Services"

                    When configuring Azure Firewall for use with Azure Storage resources, there are only five services (including Azure SQL and Azure Data Factory to name two) that are registered as "Trusted Microsoft Services". The remainder of the services are not registered as trusted, creating a lot of extra manual configuration work to ensure that their use complies with security requirements. It would be better if all common Microsoft services were registered as trusted. Also, it would be helpful to if there were some indication in the interface as to the criteria used in deeming a service trusted.

                          • Events for Azure Files

                            Unfortunately without Events support for Azure Files, I can't perform any sort of Read/Write/Delete audit logging for my File shares. This is actually a serious requirement for HIPAA compliance; it is not enough to know when or how files changed (such as with Azure File Sync), but you must also know *who* changed or accessed the file.

                              • Better ETL log file management for Azure File Sync Agent

                                On servers running the Azure Storage Sync agent we noticed that more and more space gets used on the C: drive.
                                After investigating a server we found 74GB of .ETL files in the C:\Program Files\Azure\StorageSyncAgent\MAAgent\Diagnostic directory.
                                Would be nice if the agent would automatically remove all logs older than a certain time (e.g. 1 month).

                                  I'd have expected Azure File Sync to ignore syncing a file that's already been copied from a server to Azure Files, but if I upload a file with the same file name, but different content (e.g. corrections to that content), File Sync still ignores it, I'd have expected the content hash to determine whether to sync not file name?

                                    I'm trying out the new Lifecycle Mgmt feature on Azure Storage and have two pieces of feedback to update documentation please.

                                    1) The AzureRM PowerShell module does not support the new commands for setting lifecycle policy (Set-AzureRmStorageAccountManagementPolicy) and I have no idea what module to load in order to get this command-let. 2) I create a policy to move all stuff every day hot>cool>archive>delete as an experiment and I'm not seeing any state changes in the blobs. Any documentation on whey the policy is invoked, frequency would be helpful.

                                    • Clone option for Table rows

                                      Sometimes we need to enter a lot of Table records with mostly similar values. It would be handy if there was a Clone option. This would be largely the same as the Add function except that the form would be pre-filled with the values of the row highlighted when the button was pressed. PartitionKey and RowKey would be editable.

                                      • Add Cool and Archive tiers for Page Blobs and managed disks

                                        I need to keep an archive of VHD files for old Virtual Machines which are currently unused, but may be needed in the future. I would like to use the Archive tier for this, I can wait a few hours if the Virtual Machines are ever needed again.

                                        I see in Azure Storage explorer that changing tiers is supported for Block Blobs, but not Page Blobs. It should also be supported for Page Blobs. Also, newer VMs use Managed Disks, so this should be supported for managed disks too.

                                        • see how many files are synced, and which ones are being automatically excluded

                                          In order to increase my confidence that all of my files are being synced, it would be nice to be able to see a count of how many files are in the synced storage account in the Azure portal, so I can compare to the number of files in the on-premises folder. Also, it would be nice to give a list of the files that were automatically excluded (such as desktop.ini, ~*.*, *.tmp, thumbs.db), so if the counts differ, I can see if it's because of these.
