    1. Allow referencing an Azure resource by id in Network Security Groups

      NSG's should allow the use of Azure resource ID in addition to ip addresses for NSGs. For example, if I reference the ID of a webapp, then the rule will apply to the public IPs of that webapp. If I reference an azure VM, then the rule will apply to the ip address of that vm. And so on. It would make it so much more flexible to build up rules by using resource id's/names than today's very static and cumbersome implementation, especially for complex rules.

    2. Site Categorization for the new Azure Firewall

      Adding the ability to restrict outbound traffic based on Site Categorization would be great. This would give the ability to restrict outbound access to adult, gambling and other questionable sites.

    3. Roelant

      when adding endpoints to the traffic manager, you get all app-services that are available, but in our case, the list is very long, and searching makes it difficult. The list is not sorted, and neither can we filter it.
      Adding a filter would be very helpfull.

    4. Application gateway

      Hi MS team,

      Could you enable the 'Edit' option for the Listeners we are configuring in the Application gateway. This will be really helpful if we decide to change our certificate.

      Although we can do a workaround of deleting the listener and creating new one, but that needs some time investigating it, so I feel Edit option is a much better and easy approach for clients.

      Thanks,
      Thulasidas

    5. Please provide metric for Point-to-Site VPN traffic

      We can't meter Point-to-Site VPN usage now.
      Please provide metric for Point-to-Site VPN traffic like Site-to-Site tunnnel metric.

    6. Add a feature that gives you an static IP regardless of what server you attach to it.

      Add a feature that gives you an static IP regardless of what server you attach to it. That wat, if you have to migrate your server you keep your IP Address.

    7. Add ServiceTags for login.microsoft.com and arm api endpoint in NSG

      Kubernetes requires access to the different endpoint to perform automation.

      We also need to restrict internet access with an outbound rule. It would be best if we could configured the NSG to prevent internet access while keeping the access to the internal Azure endpoints.

    8. Maintain "DNS Zone" name server across muliple Zones

      Currently Azure DNS Zone will randomly create Zone records in different DNS Servers.

      I have a public DNS server which I would like to migrate to Azure DNS Zone, to do this I need maintain my name servers but redirect to Azure's. because every time I create a new zone it is generated in a different DNS Server I can't create the CNAMEs to easily migrate my clients domains.

      Could this feature be added.

    9. Monitoring BGP Routes Updates - Routes addition or deletion

      We are looking for option to monitor BGP Routes which are propagated to Azure Virtual network through ExpressRoute established and managed by network provider, BT . This is to notify network admins when new network is added as BGP Routes in Azure Virtual Network.
      It would be good if this can be monitored using OMS log analytics. As an alternative option, if route addition is logged as activity log, then it can be used for alerting and notification.

    10. Named network sets (avoid repeated network rules in every Azure service)

      Both SQL Server and Storage now support firewall for inbound requests, where I can inform authorized IP addresses or virtual networks that have access. It is expected that other Azure services will follow that (Key Vault? Data Lake?).

      The problem is that if I have a subset of services that use same firewall rules, I have to repeat these rules over and over.

      The suggestion is that Azure Network allows definition of a named network set, or simply named network definition, and then in each service I simply inform that name, instead of repeating the rules again,

      This way if…

    11. Application Security Groups, Service Tags, and Augmented security rules in Gov

      Application Security Groups, Service Tags, and Augmented security rules (public preview) would be great additions to managing networks security in Azure Government. NSG's are good, but a complex application can quickly increase the number NSG rules and potentially reach limits fast. These three features would be really REALLY nice.

    12. Azure Firewall NAT Rules

      When the UDR assoc the Subnet is not possible connect by RDP from the Internet, or other services exposed in the internet.

      If I could create the NAT Rule on the Azure Firewall I can expose any services in internet and this issue would be resolved.

      thank you so much.

      Best Regards

    14. 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).

    17. azure application gateway websockets latency metric

      When using websockets together with Azure Application Gateway, you end up with artifically increased latency_d in the ApplicationGatewayPerformanceLog. Indeed, all the 101 (websockets) connections remain pending, which is a normal behavior and their duration gets recorded by the gateway. The problem is this normal behavior increases the average latency of all requests (including non-101) and there is no way to filter 101 out of the ApplicationGatewayPerformanceLog logs...Therefore, if we setup an alert on latency_d, this will raise a lot of false positives...While this metric is very useful in the ApplicationGatewayAccessLog because it allows for calculation of average user sessions, it…

    18. Traffic analysis on ExpressRoute connections on top dataflows

      If there are many VNET's connected to the ExpressRoute, traffic of one VNET can impact other VNET's traffic. We need a way to see which src_ip and dst_ip traffic is responsible for filling up the ExpressRoute. Current NSG flow data does not include amount of data between endpoints, thus we need another way of analysing top consumers of the ExpressRoute.
