  2. Azure Blob Storage - Retrieve user that reads or writes blob in Storage Container

    Hello

    Just an idea regarding Azure Storage:

    Making available and easy how to know the AD user that writes or reads a blob file in a container. I cannot see the property at blob level, neither in Storage Account Activity Log (at least for a specific blob file).

    Would be there a way to know, for each blob in my container, which user has accessed it and how it dealt with the blob?

    It's not an option in the current logs that are generated, they aren't fine grained. the current log format would only indicate whether the request was authenticated…

  3. Azure File Sync - Free Space Threshold On Multiple Endpoints Not Flexible

    Per documentation and Help pop up on the setting, when configuring multiple endpoints: "When there is more than one server endpoint on a volume, the effective volume free space threshold is the largest volume free space specified across any server endpoint on that volume."

    Why not allow independent endpoint free space thresholds?

    If endpoint1 has 20 times more free space than endpoint2, but I have to set the free space threshold high to get some data on endpoint2, this forces endpoint1 to use the same threshold, not using available space for more local cache of files.

    Flexibility in data sharing…

  4. Azure Backup takes too much time to restore

    I'm currently writing my Disater Recovery Plan, and tried to restore a whole server from Azure Backup (Approx 500Gb of data).

    I just leaved after two days as the restore was only 20Gb out of 500...

    Today i needed to restore a simple Excel Spreadsheet (90Kb), it takes 10 mintues to recover.

    This is not possible for our company to have a week off only because azure backup takes too much time to restore.

    We have a Fiber Connection here, with 200 Mbps Down / 100Mbps Up so that's not a bandwidth issue.

    Could you please advise ?

    Kind Regards,

  5. Easily block access to blob storage by country using pre-created list of US based IP addresses

    It would be good to easily gate access to public Blob storage to use US based IP addresses to for a little bit of added security for public access blob storage files.

  7. Allow to enter a path in Azure Storage explorer

    I cannot figure out how to open a specific container in Azure Storage Explorer by name. I know the precise name (from the web experience), but there is no "navigate to" option. The only option seems to keep clicking on "Show More" until I see it. Our system has hundreds of containers, so this is not a workable solution

  9. Life cycle policy prefix match shall match container name instead of start with

    Currently when we set prefix match for container name in life cycle policy is actually query as container name start with which will affect all container name using similar container name . For example i got 2 container ALI and ALI-Monthly. If i put prefix match equal ALI. Both blob files in container ALI and ALI-Monthly will get deleted. Please enhance it so that only ALI will get deleted.

  12. 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.

  14. Shrinking Drive Size

    I would believe that I am not the only Azure customer that has had to increase drive size temporarily to try to fix an issue on their VM and then need to shrink back to their original size. With all the advanced features available through Azure you would think that shrinking a disk would be as easy as enlarging. Yes it would require you to first shrink the drive size in the OS first before allowing you to shrink it in the portal.

  15. create permission for larger files

    Users are unable to upload files via CLI that are larger than 100MiB with just create permissions. As this is an API limitation, it would be helpful to either increase the block size or to create a permission that allows users to create but not overwrite for larger files.

  16. Azure Storage Emulator Error

    We may see the error message (as attached in screenshot) when we try to open the storage emulator locally sometimes. But sometimes, there is no such error message. Do you know why?

  17. Make documentation and product match up

    The quick start guide tells me to set blob storage tier but that options doesn't exist. Entire portal plus documentation seems to be a sales pitch rather than a resource as I (naively) assumed.

  20. Show Classic Disks in All Resources on Azure Portal

    Currently, users can see Classic Disks by navigating to
    All Services => Disks (Classic).

    However, Classic Disks are not listed under All Resources on the Portal, unlike other classic resource such as VMs or VNETs.

    Thank you.
