    1. Cross-subscription VNet (Shared VNet)

      A virtual network that spans subscriptions. Multiple different subscriptions can deploy to the same virtual network in a region.

      If you are interested in this feature, please up-vote and add details about your company/scenario.

    3. wants to make my custom service tags for network security group

      Is it possible to create and add our own service tag mapping to multiple ip address ranges? These days, we need to have our own service tag for outside cloud vendor's service such as payment or customer review.

    5. Multi Tenant, Service Endpoint, vNet Peering, Subnet Whitlisting

      We have had a use case that could not be implemented due to the functionality not being available, We have a Multi-Tenant Alliance of Companies that require interoperability in regards to network access,

      Use Case:
      Tenant 1 :-
      Subscription,
      CosmosDB with Vnet with CosmosDB Service Endpoint

      Tenant 2 :-
      Subscription,
      VPN vNet with CosmosDB Service Endpoint

      We have managed to get both virtual network Globally vNet Peered via resourceID, however, cannot get the external tenant vnet subnet whitelisted within the cosmosdb due to it not being implemented yet.

      Confirmed with MS support to raise a Azure Network Improvement

    7. KMS / RHUI service endpoint

      Could you kindly add service endpoint for KMS and RHUI.
      It will really helpful for managing VMs without SNAT Public IP.

    9. I want to set using gateways on spoke vnet.

      actually, vnet peering is able to single hub architecture.

      eg;
      Allowed model:
      [ Spoke vnet1 ] ----------- [ Hub vnet1 ] -----<ER/S2S>---
      - spoke to hub use remote gateway
      - hub to spoke allow gateway transit

      Disallowed model:
      ---<ER/S2S>---- [ Spoke vnet1 ] -------- [ Hub vnet1 ] --- <ER/S2S> ---
      - spoke to hub use remote gateway
      - hub to spoke allow gateway transit(both vnets)

      I want to use multi gateway, use scenario is below.
      [Spoke vnet1] is owned by managed service provider. This service has VPN option on VPN gateway. but, cannot deploy VPN of this restriction.

    11. UDR next hop based on FQDN

      Are there any plan to support next hop address based on FQDN so route table can be failover based on DNS ?

    12. Allow NVAs etc... to establish BGP session directly with VNETs

      To make HA scenarios a lot simpler with NVAs that support BGP (which most of them do nowadays) each VNET should allow you to establish a BGP session directly with it so you can advertise and learn routes dynamically straight to the VNET.

      This would help so many HA scenarios and also making sure traffic flows are symmetric a lot simpler by using BGP local preference, AS Path and Weight attributes.

      Perhaps this could be enabled via a VNET service endpoint on your VNET as required?

    13. Tiny IPv6 address prefix size is just embarrasing.

      This is a common theme of service providers that Just Do Not Get It. The entire point of IPv6 is that the address space is no longer limited to tiny blocks.

      The standard is to provide a /64 to customers. That should be the bare minimum for a cloud service being provided to enterprises. A /125 is a joke.

      The RIPE.NET recommendation is /48 for everybody: https://bit.ly/2rynO5M

    14. Allow us to view the effective route for an Subnet without requiring an Interface inside of the subnet.

      Currently in order to view the effective routes for a subnet you need to have some kind of network interface inside of the subnet. I find that sometimes I need to view the routing table for a subnet, but it doesn't contain any VMs. Could you add functionality to allow us to view the effective routes without having to provision anything inside of it?
      My use case is that I host ILB ASEs in dedicated subnets, but I can't view the routing table because there are no VMs inside of it.

    15. Service Tag dependecy

      What does Service Tag depency on other service tags mean? For example for Azure Monitor service tag has dependency on Stroage service tag. Does this mean we need to add Storage as well for Azure Monitor or does this mean Azure monitor includes IPs for Storage service tag?

    16. Add Service Tags to Route Tables/UDR

      Include the ability to add Service Tags to UDRs. We have experienced that while many times services require NSGs to be open for a Service, many users have a default route in the Route Tables to push traffic through network virtual appliances. To circumvent having to put an entire datacenter range IP on UDRs to get services to work, there should be Service Tags in the UDR destination field in order to be able to add specific services the ability to talk to VNET-joined services. A good example of this is API Management. While the team does not support a…

    18. NSG service tag for AzureBastionSubnet

      When implementing complicated access controls inside a virtual network, we always need to allow connections from AzureBastionSubnet of the virtual network.

      It would be nice we have AzureBastionSubnet service tag which automatically describes a specific Azure Bastion subnet for each virtual network where resources NSG attached reside in.

    19. Allow to add multiple Service Tags to NSG rule

      Allow to add multiple Service Tags to NSG rule. Right now we can add multiple subnets, ranges, IPs and ports, Great idea would be to add also multiple service tags to source/destination as now we create multiple rules for one host to multiple service tags.

    20. The Ability to change/define the BGP IP address assigned to the Virtual Network Gateway (automatically by Azure) when enabling BGP

      The BGP Peer IP addresses when randomly assigned creates issues with the On-premise networks and private IP addresses ranges being advertised and currently in use. Customers have VPN's to various other devices and platforms, the static address provided creates routing issues when the BGP peer advertised is a part of a cutomer On-premise network.
