  1. Azure Files SMB for MAC OSX

    To make the MAC OSX customers adopt Azure, I strongly suggest Microsoft to create the following features by the end of 2021:


    1. Azure Files SMB components for MAC OSX, so users can easily access company files by smb:// path

    2. Azure VPN Client for MAC OSX with AAD authentication, another crucial feature for Apple users.

    These 2 features prevent us from migration a lot of customers, I sincerely think this will provide Microsoft with even more long term growth.

  2. Add client side encryption support for QueueTriggerAttribute

    Client side encryption only appears to be supported for storage if you interact with queues using QueueServiceClient/QueueClient (I assume the same is true for blobs and tables).

    See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-client-side-encryption?tabs=dotnet

    I'd like my queue triggered Functions to use QueueTriggerAttribute to handle the decryption transparently. Same for encryption when using QueueAttribute to write messages to the queue.

    It would be great if these Attributes had parameters which could be used to define the configuration for client side encryption.

  5. [Azure Storage Explorer] Display human readable size UOM (MB/GB/TB) for Folder Statistics

    [Azure Storage Explorer] Display human readable size UOM (MB/GB/TB) for Folder Statistics instead of display size in bytes.

    Currently i need manually convert bytes to MB or GB size UOM.

    Please advise. Thanks.

  6. Stored access policy for Storage SAS

    As per this documentation, I can see that "Stored access policies are not supported for the user delegation SAS or the account SAS.."

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/storageservices/define-stored-access-policy

    Ask: Are we planning to implement Stored access policies for the account SAS ?

  7. azcopy sync to Azure Files

    AzCopy already has the ability to sync local storage to blob storage.

    It'd be really useful if it could also sync local storage to Azure Files Shares.

  8. Metric for storage percentage per file share

    It would be of great use if we could have a metric for percentage of storage in a specific file share within a storage account, even non-premium ones!

  9. Azure Services should use Managed Storage Account to store log, config files

    There are many Azure Services that requires a storage accounts to store logs, config etc.

    Many times, in order to properly secure the storage account, we need to enable firewall on the storage account, or service endpoint or vNet integration.

    There are many scenarios that you will have to use premium tier Azure Services to use vNet integration and it does add cost and complexity to the overall solution.

    I'm glad to see that certain implementation uses Managed Storage Account, such as VM boot diagnostics
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/boot-diagnostics#enable-managed-boot-diagnostics

    This clever design hides non-customer data from Azure Portal, and the benefits are at…

  10. Storage Explorer Sign in to only one Azure AD tenant at a time

    If your microsoft account is associated with multiple Azure AD tenants (as a Guest account) Storage Explorer requires you to authenticate multiple times when signing in (with each tenant).

    I would like to see an experience similar to the Azure Portal where you log into one (default, or most recent) tenant, and there is the facility to swap between tenants.

    This would be more convenient than having to log into tenants that you wont need for the Storage Explorer session, or tenants that you don't use very often.

  11. Which Microsoft Azure Certification is designed for beginner?

    Since you are looking for Microsoft Azure entry level certification, the answer seems very simple and straightforward. Microsoft AZ-900 exam or Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification is the way to move up the ladder.

    The Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ-900 exam will definitely help you validate your skills and knowledge of the key Microsoft Azure concepts. Then, depending on your learning and experience, you can choose an other Azure certification.

  13. Assign file/folder level permissions to AzureAD users on Azure File Shares

    It would great to have the ability to assign NTFS style permissions to folders and files on Azure Files Shares based on AzureAD/O365 accounts.

    Currently you have to have AzureAD DS enabled/configured on your tenant, and have a vm joined to that domain services instance with the share mounted to it. For organizations that are moving away from centralized AD, this prevents them from using Azure File shares to replace file servers.

  15. FileSyncErrorsReport.ps1 not checking current logs

    FileSyncErrorsReport.ps1 is checking for log files with %4 in their name:

    Microsoft-FileSync-Agent%4ItemResults.evtx
    Microsoft-FileSync-Agent%4ItemResults.evtx

    These log files are not currently being updated in any of our Windows Server 2019 VMs.

    Instead, the correct, updated log files are:

    Microsoft-FileSync-AgentItemResults.evtx
    Microsoft-FileSync-AgentItemResults.evtx

    Without modifying the FileSyncErrorsReport.ps1 file, we do not receive the correct troubleshooting information.

    We are using the most up-to-date agent (at this time of writing) 11.1.0.0

  16. The ability to lock folder so their content is not tiered

    It would be useful if you could lock a folder so that the content residing within the folder is excluded from cloud tiering. This would be similar to the OneDrive feature where you can opt to "always keep on this device". However, I would imagine for the AFS it would be a PowerShell that would be managed by IT rather than at the end user level.

  17. Can identity access control be enabled for Mac users on File Shares

  20. Provide RBAC for folders and sub folders within a Blob Container

    It would be great if RBAC can be provided for folders and sub folders within a Blob Container.

    A Blob Container can have multiple folders and sub folders, it would be good if RBAC can be assigned at folder and sub folder level.

    For examle, a Blob Container called “Container W”, it has 2 folders “Folder A” and “Folder B”, then “Folder A” has 2 sub folders called “Folder sub A1”, “Folder sub A2”; and “Folder B” has 3 sub folders called “Folder sub B1”, “Folder sub B2” and “Folder sub B3”. It would be great if access can be…
