    1. Use Public IP address with custom DNS label on existing Application Gateway

      The Application Gateway does not allow to get a public IP address assigned, for which the DNS label has been set.
      Error Message: "You can't choose a public IP address that has a domain name label specified."

      When using certificates that are registered on specific CNAMEs, you should be able to set the DNS label of the public IP address of the Application Gateway to match the CNAME.

    2. Fix Virtual Network Gateway IKEv2 Security Logging

      Ok, so logging access to enterprise networks is a basic security control which we shouldn't be asking for in year 2018.

      If we deploy P2S/Virtual Network Gateway w/IKEv2/certificate authentication in its current state, we open our networks to the internet and have no idea who logs into it and from where. There are basically NO events logged for an authenticated user. In addition, the "Connection Count" doesn't increment. So If I have 100 users connect via IKEv2, Connection Count still shows 0.

      THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT SECURITY HOLE.

      Microsoft - this product shouldn't have been released, not in its current…

    3. Azure Front Door service is incompatible with blob storage if using Azure storage's shared key authentication method

      We found Azure Front Door service is incompatible with Azure blob storage if using Azure storage's shared key authentication method. The root cause is AFD will add some x-ms-* headers into the request to storage backend, storage backend will use all headers begin with “x-ms-“ to calculate the MAC signature. So the request will be rejected by storage service if forwarded by AFD.

    4. traffic manager api

      I would like an API call that can be made to get the list of traffic manager IP addresses. (this list https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/traffic-manager/traffic-manager-faqs#what-are-the-ip-addresses-from-which-the-health-checks-originate.)

      That way we can automate the checking of this list and alert if it is amended, and also automate updating our azure services. Just having a website to check is too manual.

    5. improve application gateway rule description documentation

      When you will improve the documentation to include better descriptions at the rules? Having a rule with a description Rule 981312 doesn't help to know what it does! Enabling all rules have a huge impact on WAF performance and we need to know what exactly each rule does in order to fine tune it.

    6. Make TrafficManager more robust when there's a major outage

      We configured the TrafficManager to either point to deployement1 or deployment2, which live in different locations, depending on which is in the "prod" role (machines are allocated) or the "backup" role (machines are deallocated). Using the TrafficManager is attractive because the customer doesn't need to make any changes on their end; if we need to revise the TrafficManager to point to the other deployment, it's simple and straightforward to allocate the machines and run a few lines of PS code. However, during the recent extended outage in the South Central US, after allocating the backup machines, when we tried to…
