    1. Can not use shortcut key like Windows Key via Bastion.

      I pressed Windows key and I found that operation forcused my laptop PC. I confirmed same behavior when I pressed "Alt + Tab" to change Task Window.

      I found same case in stackover flow.

      I hope you to add this feature.

    2. Bastion - correct keyboard

      Azure Bastion does not handle keyboards very well. With Norwegian keyboards we are using "Alt GR" to get symbols like @ (altGR-2). This works with RDP, but not with the new console (In Microsoft Edge).

    4. I want to start and stop flexibly.

      Bastion is not always necessary. It would be nice if fast, start, stop, and no cost when stopping.

    7. Improve Text Clarity

      Text in either full screen or windowed mode appears pixelated, but readable. Almost as if cleartext is disabled.

    8. Allow direct connections to Bastion without going through Azure Portal or AAD

      When I first saw Bastion, I thought it was a SaaS/PaaS native equivalent of Apache Guacamole, but I was disappointed to see the constraints of requiring the Azure portal to access and authenticate. I would like a service that allows direct browser access to the bastion service, but allows me to use standard web authentication mechanisms so I can use SAML/PIV/multifactor mechanisms that don't require client account creation in Azure AD. Unless that is available with Bastion, we won't be using this service and will look into customizing Guacamole offerings in the marketplace.

    9. Azure Bastion - Support for other protocols (JDBC / ODBC)

      Are there any plans for Azure Bastion to support other protocols than SSH / RDP? It would be a significant advantage for us if we could also use Azure Bastion for JDBC / ODBC connections (for example: through the SQL Server Management Studio).

    12. Bastion subnet to support UDR.

      Now we can not use UDR on Basiton subnet. If the VNet is configured with force tunneling by ER, we can not avoid 0.0.0.0/0 traffic to opre. I hope we can apply UDR in order to override force tunneling.

    13. Allow inbound 443 from the Internet to Bastion subnet

      Hi Azure team,

      Thanks for bring such great feature to us! :D

      As per the https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/bastion/bastion-nsg and our own test.

      We need to allow Inbound port 443 from Internet to the Bastion Subnet. From my understanding, the Bastion instance is only making connections from/to Azure portal. Is there any reason we need to open 443 to the Internet, instead of some tag like “AzureCloud”

      Thanks,

      Tim

    15. Connect target VM with full screen mode.

      When we enabled full screen of bastion display, the session connected to another session. The issue happened only first time when they enabled full screen. If we could enable full screen at the starting the session, this issue may not happen. I hope you add the option to start session with full screen mode.

    16. Allow more granular NSG rules in AzureBastionSubnet

      Right now in order to associate a AzureBastionSubnet with an NSG a strict set of rules must be in place, some of them with source "ANY" which goes against security policies in most companies.
      A clear example is the needed rule allowing from ANY to VirtualNetwork service tag on ports 22 and 3389. You should allow us to select the AzureBastionSubnet as the source instead of "ANY" and also allow us to granularly select the destination subnets or IP addresses and ports because maybe I don't want to give access to some subnets or some ports from the Bastion host.
