    1. separate DNS Zone Contributor’s permission to create DNS zones and manage DNS Zone records

      DNS Zone Contributor’s permission will allow the user to manage DNS zones and records, but will not be able to create new zone.

    2. Allow DNS support for testing in free test tier

      I need to test Azure for a client. Client wants to use Azure. I cannot fully test the setup as I am not allowed to add unique DNS records in the free test tier. I either have to change to a test account (who is going to pay for that?) or push the client to AWS (they allow full DNS access)

      [I tried to reach out to MS Support but was given this forum as an answer.]

    3. Disable deleting referenced record

      Understanding that this should be limited in scope to the current zone...

      Azure should block an attempt to delete a record (A/AAAA/CN) that is being referenced elsewhere in the zone (by a CNAME).

      for example:
      - A.myzone.com is A record for 1.2.3.4
      - B.myzone.com is CN record for A.myzone.com
      I should not be able to delete A.myzone.com until B no longer references it. (since i'm unsure how CN's work in relation to AAAA's, there may be some other/edge cases to consider as well)

    4. Sort the list of back end hostnames when adding a backend to a pool

      When listing the backend hostnames for adding to a pool, sorting them alphabetically would make it easier to find.
      Probably a filter will even be better.

    5. Alteração do DNS

      Sou cliente do Azure no Brasil e temos contrato máquinas virtuais localizadas no Sul do Brasil, porém no Mapa do caminho do DNS está indo para os EUA causando grandes problemas quando as empresas de internet estão com problemas de DNS e grande parte do tempo estão com problemas. Com isso, sugiro que quando contratamos um servidor no Brasil, que o DNS não tenha que sair do país de origem, uma vez que o servidor contratado também está no Brasil.

    6. Allow country specific characters in Azure DNS

      It seems that is is not possible to register domainnames within Azure DNS with sepecific country allowed characters, like ë of ü in Germany.

    7. Support LOC records in Azure public DNS zones

      LOC records provide geographical information useful for planning, debugging, etc. Ideally, such support would include both custom LOC records for on-premises domains, subdomains, and hosts, and the option of using a LOC record matching the Azure location of a given public IP.

      Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

    8. Allow Traffic Manager Endpoint monitor setting to support complex scenario like authentication

      Traffic Manager can be used to redirect traffic to REST APIs that are protected by some kind of authentication (e.g. Basic or OAuth).

      Please allow more complex "Endpoint monitor setting" to be able to ping those endpoints (e.g. Allow to make POST request, add http headers or VS web test)

    9. Traffic analytics error reporting IP vs NIC

      We have several app-ways in the same subnet.
      Traffic analytics is display a DestIP_s which does not correspond with the displayed NIC_s (it belongs to a different app-way).

    10. Add support for additional expected status codes in Azure Traffic Manager

      Please consider adding support for additional expected status codes in Azure Traffic Manager. As it stands today, only status codes of 200-299 or 301 are supported. However, my monitored workload is expected to return a 401. As such, I'm forced to use the less accurate TCP method for monitoring my endpoints.

    12. Allow single top level domain for private zone name

      Allow to create private DNS zone like .lan. Currently zone names require 2 or more labels (foo.lan).
