    1. Azure DevOps Whitelisting

      Please create service tag for Azure DevOps Hosted Build Agents. I have been told that to allow hosted agent access through NSG - to my ASE's, I need to whitelist ALL external Azure IPs.. This is unaccesptable from a Security standpoint. Please address immediately

      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

    2. Feature Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

      Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

      In this new feature (ex : Azure IP Object management) user can create IP Object (List of Ips or Subnet) this object can be added in any Azure Resources who have a Firewall (Azure SQL, Storage Account, WebApp,...)

      For Exemple:
      You create an Object "Company Public IPs" and you add in this object All your company Public IP.
      In your Azure resources Firewall (WebApp, AzureDB, NSG,...) you specify this Object to allowing access.

      If tomorrow you need to add a new public IP you just need to add this new public IP…

    3. Expose IP address ranges via API

      You can download an XML file of Azure IP address ranges from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41653. It's updated weekly.
      It would be nice to be able to access this list via an API so that we could automate any changes required when the Azure's IP address list changes.
      Kind of like what Amazon does: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/aws-ip-ranges-json/

    4. NVA Public IP

      Ability to assign Public IP to an NVA interface, without going through the Azure Internal NAT. Like Onpremise Firewall. Currently, Azure creates interfaces with Private and Public IP, but only permit assigns Private IP to the NVA interfaces.

    5. difrentiate IP ranges per service

      At the moment if we want to restrict access to Azure services we need to whitelist entire Region. PCI certification requirements require to limit also outgoing access to the specific IP addreses to avoid possibility that attacker will be able to exfiltrate data from attacked machine.
      With current scenario (whitelisting entire region) attacker can put FTP or HTTP upload server in the same region of the Azure and successfully upload data there. If ranges would be specific for services (e.g. Sql Azure, Key Vault, etc) then such exfiltration wouldn't be possible as we could restrict access to the services which…

    6. Create Azure IP address search tool for Network Watcher / Network Diagnostic Tools

      NSG logging is nice that it reports communication between azure objects. However, its not always obvious which service / vm the IP address represents in an NSG log.

      It would be very helpful if there was some kind of Azure IP address lookup tool where you supply a VNet address and an IP address and then the search tool would show you which Azure object that IP Address corresponds (Object Name, Object Type).
