    1. Bastion Host accept custom ports for RDP and SSH over TCP

      Bastion Host should be capable to accept custom ports for RDP and SSH over TCP.
      For security reasons, mostly people block the default ports and use custom port.

    2. How to avoid dropdown menu and keep one(like last used option) when having multiple bastion hosts

      We have two VNets. VNet1 and VNet2. VNet1 has VNet Peering with VNet2. In each VNet, we have Bastion.

      If we want to connect VM in either VNet1 or VNet2, the Azure portal shows two Bastion.

      Is it possible to release a custom feature to hide the bastion host or keep last used option?

      That would improve user experience. Thank you very much!

    3. Enable local printing

      Especially with the increase of remote work, my employees and clients need to be able to print remotely to their local printers from a server. This is a basic function, it should have been created when Bastion was built

    4. Allow users to deallocate/turn off Bastion when the resources are not in use.

      We use our Azure resources only sporadically and the high cost of Bastion is disappointing. It would help a great deal if we could deallocate it or turn it off with our VMs.

    6. Support lower cost option for infrequently used scenarios

      While Bastion is very useful to us we only use it on rare occasions. It would be nice to have a lower cost option that perhaps has much more limited session usage or other resources. Perhaps offering it on a lower end VM SKU.

    7. Enable start/stop of Azure Bastion, to reduce cost when not in use

      I have a VM that I use in infrequent bursts, so I start it, use it, then shut it down same-day. Then I may not use it again for a few days.

      I would like to use Azure Bastion to access the VM, but I don't want to have to leave Bastion deployed and running 7x24 when my VM isn't 7x24.

    8. allow Bastion used in VWAN spoke Vnets

      For spokes VNETs of VWAN, currently, bastion is not supported like this:
      Bastion (Spoke 1) -> Hub -> VM (Spoke 2).

      customer's voice:

      Support for Bastion via a peered vnet connected to our VWAN hubs would literally remove the need for jump boxes in our Azure environment. Given the push for customers to move to Azure VWAN if this capability is not present it really should be high on the priority list as it improves our environment security and governance while reducing complexity and costs.

    9. Azure bastion support connecting to VMs in other vnets peered to a vHub

      It would be great if we could use a single Azure bastion to connect to VMs in other vnets when peerings are done on a virtual hub.

    10. CaPsLOcK issue when you RDP from a Bastion server

      You connect to your Bastion server, then you RDP to another server and that's where the issue starts. When you type anywhere with CAPSLOCK ON, you lose the upper case, which looks similar to this: I lOSt MY CApSLOcK. Same applies when you use SHIFT with special characters eg.: £3££££3£££££33. I logged the ticket with Support but apparently there's no fix for it yet. Please look into it. Thank you.

    11. Be able to Stop Azure Bastion

      I love azure bastion but wow if you don't delete it the cost goes up and up. There has to be a way to stop it when not using it so I don't have a a massive bill for a VM 1 turn on once a week because bastion runs it up $200

    12. Support HPDI screens/desktop scaling

      Great service, though accessing Windows Server machines (at least, not tried others) from a high-DPI screen, i.e. any laptop or a 1440p+ monitor results in a blurry view of the VM.

      Could desktop scaling be supported please like it is on normal RDP clients?

    13. Bastion supporting fqdn connection

      Hello,

      We trying to connect to a Windows Server VM using Azure Bastion with an account member of Protected Users group.
      This connection failed and I can see in my AD eventlog an error because connection used NTLM (and NTLM is forbidden by Protected Users AD group).

      Apparently, Azure Bastion used target IPs and by the way, authentication is downgrades to NTLM.

      To avoid this issue and to improve global security using both Protected Users and Azure Bastion, it should used FQDN of the target instead of target's IP.

    16. Option to disable automatic logging in with supplied credentials

      An option to control whether BASTION will automatically log you back into your desktop with supplied credentials (by resizing your browser window). The default behaviour is to allow this but it has been identified as a low risk in our *********** testing. The ability to control whether this behaviour should be enabled / disabled would be helpful.

    18. Changable terminal buffer size of Azure Bastion

      Currently it only shows latest 1000 lines of commands.
      Although I can confirm the terminal logs afterwards, it might be nice if I can just scroll upward to confirm older logs when I run a huge batch in real time.

    20. Azure bastion connection does not support host names

      The connect option on an azure bastion resource asks for a host name, but doens't actually resolve host names (only IP addresses). The text should either be changed to ip addresses, or the functionality should be changed to support host names.
