  1. Relax Storage account name rules for improved readability

    Why can Azure storage account name be only up to 24 characters and cannot contain anything besides numbers and lowercase characters? Most Azure services allow at least "-" character, but Storage and Kusto are notable exceptions.

    I love to have an incident at 3 am and figure out if it is prodscr1weuncasrlt or prodscr1neuncasrlt, vs prod-scr1-weu-cas-rlt.

  2. Azure File Sync: Allow to change Sync Group Name

    Currently I backup my Drives in Azure using my machine name + driveletter in azure sync groups as name. In case I migrate my data on local machines I would love to change the Sync Group name accordingly. Currently this is not supported.

  3. Ability to set Proxy Server

    Allow the ability to set the proxy server for requests on windows azure storage

    I will say yes you can set the global but this isn't always ideal in all environments.

  4. Forecast or Show Approximate Storage Size for Selected Items for Azure Backup before the actual/scheduled Backup

    Hi Azure Microsoft Team

    Highly appreciate if you can calculate or forecast the selected items to Backup in the Schedule Backup Wizard for Azure Backup so that we can determine the file size storage are being backup rather than after the backup job success.

    It will be another awesome feature to be added.

    Thank you

  6. Add details/ examples for 'cl' permissions in container permissions

    In these docs (following) it is unlcear as to whether a 'cl' permission can be used in order to grant create and list rights. In testing, it appears that "read" permissions are also needed for the Set-AzStorageBlobContent to work: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/storageservices/create-service-sas#permissions-for-a-directory-container-or-blob

  8. ARM resource for Blob Container Stored Access Policies

    Please provide an ARM resource for Blob Container Stored Access Policies.

    Our deployment currently has to do a little dance: deploy a Microsoft.Storage resource with its own IP added to the Allowed IPs ... ensure a Stored Access Policy exists ... then remove its own IP from the list.

    This dance is unnecessary complexity, and today is causing us grief because today Storage firewall updates are being very random and slow to take effect.

    We can skip the dance if we could just express the SAP as another resource in the template.

  9. Storage tiering / Replication

    • Offer capability like SSD/Sata/Sas high perf, Low cost with automatic tiering, offer deduplication capability mean in the same Data center store 10 times the same file for the same price, the capability to use DPM for Backup , SCOM capability ... Offer live replication in active /active Mode with GSLB like front end capability ..

    But Azure is a very good product.

  10. Storage operations

    On Azure storage I would like to (from the new portal):
    - list content of tables
    - run queries against tables
    - peek/pop/put queues and show approximate queue size
    - browse blob hierarchies
    - download and upload blobs

    This functionality would alone be a reason to move from old portal to new portal.

  12. View only access to queue, table content in the preview portal

    Every time I try free trial and use azure queue and table for practice - I feel that view only access to azure table and queue is not available and I end building my own. It will easier to continue exploring similar azure features if view only access to contents are available - for example, for azure queue - view currently queued messages. If Azure portal is not suitable for it, then may be some Microsoft tool do the same - something like MMC in windows server.

  13. option to create new storage

    There should be an option to create a new storage when browsing existing storage. This same paradigm should apply for all other categories of services. Otherwise I have to hunt through a bunch of stuff in the +Add_ menu.

  16. Why create Storage accounts for each service when I already have an Storage.

    If there is a Storage account created only containers are enough to Map for any Service that we create.

    Also when we select any Storage Accounts that should show the SQL, VM or any resources that is using that storage.

  19. Passwords for Hadoop creation are rough/silly?

    10 characters, lower+upper case, number, special character? Even my onePass fully-hashed passwords don't meet this criteria. If there is a security policy that requires passwords to be that long, then can you please show all error warnings at the same time, such that I don't have to try three different passwords (because I didn't know it needed to be 10 characaters long, etc.)
