    2. express route delegated authorization - billing should be also delegated

      ER delegated authorisation to share circuits across multiple subscriptions; but the data utilisation is billed to the central owning subscription;
      allow the ability for a consuming subscription to recieve its own billing for its consumed bandwidth of the circuit.

    3. Add support for Azure Firewall in Cloud App Discovery

      Cloud App Discovery can digest firewall logs from known firewall brands. Manually or by implementing a log parsing container application.

      Please enable seamless integrations between Cloud App Discovery and Azure Firewall

      Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

    4. Allow creation of your own Service Tags for use in NSGs

      Effectively allow you to create your own address group objects that can be referenced across all NSG's in any location/VNET.

      This would simplify NSG management considerably, even more than ASGs will (when they support being used across multiple VNETs)

    5. Allow Network Adapter to move to different VNET

      Please allow one to move a VM or VM NIC to a different VNET. Its pretty crazy that one of the suggested options is a backup and restore to change the virtual machines network

    6. Azure Application Gateway wasp rule issue : 941120

      Since we have observed the exlusion rule in Application Gateway WAF is not working. For one of the azure ad cookies that are being generated randomly creating 403 issue on gateway and blocking the request. So cookie will be like 'OpenIdConnect.nonce' which need to excluded but its not working since name got concatenated with the value of the cookie. Please have a review on this since this seems bug on the wasp rule

      For Ex. REQUEST_COOKIES_NAMES:OpenIdConnect.nonce.XcAqQkCKX3DproXEwEN5OnpgG3E2wFYTzxvyttvCLZo%3D ....

    7. Support SSHFP records in Azure DNS zones

      Since Windows now supports OpenSSH natively, as well as Linux and other clients/servers on the same network, supporting this standard for server authentication seems like an obvious win.

    8. Add support for TeleSec / T-Systems CA SSL certificates on Azure CDN

      TeleSec / T-Systems is the biggest CA available in Germany. If a company, like our own, does not like to use foreign CAs for security reasons or for conformance with GDPR, it would be most helpful to support this one. (Plus, they once ran Azure in your name in Germany - perhaps that's why you forgot to add them?)

    9. CDN akamai cache hit rate

      Hello CDN PG,

      Please work with Akamai to make cache hit logs available via the Azure portal/CDN Core Analytics.

      We would like to have visibility of our cache hit rates for this service.

    10. Tags for DNS Record - with space in Tagname

      Public DNS Records currently don't allow Tagnames containing space character - we checkt this in support case 119072222001569. As far as we know all other Provider do support this. Please add this to DNS Record as well so that we have the same Tagging cababilities with all Resource Providers.

    12. Allow Custom Network Security Group rules based on custom tags

      One of the biggest issue I have with Azure’s interpretation of Security Groups is the inability to apply custom tags to the ruleset. I should be able to filter traffic based on tags I generated for my resources. A good example would be creating a tag on an Azure IaaS VM called “app-x-webserver” and then tagging my Azure SQL Db with “app-x-sqldb”.

      While I know that you can use an Application Security Group for the IaaS part, it’s not supported on PaaS. It also is limited to a specific vNET inside of a single Region. This severely limits the usefulness…

    13. Document for active-active S2S VPN with Forced Tunneling

      We would like you to add documentation for forced tunneling with Act-Act S2S VPN connection.
      Azure can create above structure with BGP default route advertisement from on-premises, however there is no documentation about this.
      We confirmed there are below documentation for Act-Act S2S VPN and for configuration of forced tunneling with VPN connection.

      Configure forced tunneling using the Azure Resource Manager deployment model
      <https://docs.microsoft.com/ja-jp/azure/vpn-gateway/vpn-gateway-forced-tunneling-rm#configure-forced-tunneling>

      Configure active-active S2S VPN connections with Azure VPN Gateways

    14. Support LOC records in Azure public DNS zones

      LOC records provide geographical information useful for planning, debugging, etc. Ideally, such support would include both custom LOC records for on-premises domains, subdomains, and hosts, and the option of using a LOC record matching the Azure location of a given public IP.

    15. Enable Auto-Reconnect for Point to Site Azure VPN connections

      I have not seen this exact suggestion prior so am adding what would be helpful for our users. Currently, when they connect remotely to a Shared Drive hosted on an Azure VM if the Network Gateway RAM hits peak utilization, or if the local users internet becomes interment they are kicked off the VPN connection and required to go back and connect all over again.

      This is a horrible customer experience.

    17. Increase the hard limit of allowed advertised routes for IPSec tunnels over BGP.

      I am dealing with a very complex client network environment, which is managed by their vendor.

      The current route advertisement limit is severely impacting the works that we need to perform through to, and within the client's network.

      I would like to request, and strongly suggest for an increase in the hard limit of allowed advertised routes for IPSec tunnels over BGP.

      Please also refer to the case reference number 119051322001294.

      Thank you.

    18. Bastion - correct keyboard

      Azure Bastion does not handle keyboards very well. With Norwegian keyboards we are using "Alt GR" to get symbols like @ (altGR-2). This works with RDP, but not with the new console (In Microsoft Edge).

    20. Fix the traffic selector of Basic VPN Gateway

      On the Azure side, on a Basic VPN S2S VPN Gateway, the VPN gateway is always configuring a traffic selector of 0.0.0.0/0 not taking into consideration the configured on premises address ranges. This is by design and makes the basic gateway a non usable product.
      If you want split tunneling you are forced to an advanced gateway, with Policy Based Traffic Selectors, even if you only are establishing one single tunnel.
