    1. Does Bastion service support more than one user?

      Once bastion service is setup can different Azure AD users connect to the VM using the Bastion service? I created a bastion service for a VM. When I use the Azure Portal, go to the page for the VM and select Bastion, I get a username/password login. Just as I expect! When another Azure AD user goes to the same VM page and clicks Bastion, he gets a page to create the bastion service, not the username/password. Your documentation really doesn't describe the overall architecture of bastion and how/if multiple users can use it although it does say that it…

    4. Enable Windows Key Features

      Can Control + ALT + Delete enabled in Azure Bastion which will be useful for users who login to server using Bastion only? Bastion does not allow first time login for a user if user account enabled with "Change password at next logon".

      I hope these features will be added soon.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. 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.

    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.

    10. Stop RDS Session host Redirect

      Logging into a RDS Windows 2016 Session host (e.g Server1) could cause you to be directed to another session host in the same collection (e.g server2). Is it possible for Bastion to force the admin switch?

    14. 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.

    15. Improve Text Clarity

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

    16. Improve Clipboard Sync

      The clipboard sync between the client and VM often stops working with no recovery method other than disconnecting and reconnecting.

    17. Scale and pause Azure Bastion for cost containment

      Scale and pause Azure Bastion for cost containment, or apply consumption or transfer-based pricing model. The service is not required if virtual machines are stopped in the subscription. A standard jumpbox can be stopped.

    19. Create ability to disable the Clipboard and clipboard access tool palette

      For specific security or DLP purposes, we need the ability to disable the clipboard access tool palette and clipboard API functionality. Additionally, If we could allow users to paste into the tool but not copy that would very beneficial.

    20. 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.
