    1. Bastion shareable links

      Make bastion shareable links accessible publicly.
      On https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/virtualnetwork/putbastionshareablelink/putbastionshareablelink It does not specify that this is still in preview yet support has informed me this feature is still in preview. Because when I try to use it it just says my subscription does not have access to Microsoft.Network/bastionShareableLink when enabling this feature using Azure CLI it just ends up in a state of pending forever.

    2. enable Bastion users to select either RDP or SSH for connecting to Linux VM

      Currently the Bastion service only lets you connect to a Linux VM using SSH. It would be nice if one could use Bastion to connect using RDP protocol as well, assuming xRDP was enabled and the port was opened to the Linux VM.

    3. 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).

    4. 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.

    5. Improve Text Clarity

    7. Bastion connection retries - limit

      Once a new instance of bastion session is initiated in a new window/tab, if the connection fails for any reason, a retry mechanism is applied (which is good), but the retries can be limited to avoid too many failures on the connection. default retry time is 15 seconds which would be 240 retries in an hour if the window/tab left open.
      Option to limit the no of retries before closing the connection.
      Option to increase the retry time out

    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.

    9. 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.

    10. allow Bastion used in VWAN spoke Vnets

      For spokes VNETs of VWAN, currently, bastion is not supported like this:
      Bastion (Spoke 1) -> Hub -> VM (Spoke 2).

      customer's voice:

      Support for Bastion via a peered vnet connected to our VWAN hubs would literally remove the need for jump boxes in our Azure environment. Given the push for customers to move to Azure VWAN if this capability is not present it really should be high on the priority list as it improves our environment security and governance while reducing complexity and costs.

    11. Bastion supporting fqdn connection

      Hello,

      We trying to connect to a Windows Server VM using Azure Bastion with an account member of Protected Users group.
      This connection failed and I can see in my AD eventlog an error because connection used NTLM (and NTLM is forbidden by Protected Users AD group).

      Apparently, Azure Bastion used target IPs and by the way, authentication is downgrades to NTLM.

      To avoid this issue and to improve global security using both Protected Users and Azure Bastion, it should used FQDN of the target instead of target's IP.

    13. Support connection from Bastion to VM's within AKS nodes

      Right now, because of some technical limitation, it is not possible to connect to a VM within AKS Node using Bastion.

      It would be great if this is supported so that we don't have to use jumpbox to bypass this issue.

    14. Azure Bastion - Support for other protocols (JDBC / ODBC)

      Are there any plans for Azure Bastion to support other protocols than SSH / RDP? It would be a significant advantage for us if we could also use Azure Bastion for JDBC / ODBC connections (for example: through the SQL Server Management Studio).

    16. 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.

    18. Allow Azure Bastion to SSH to a Linux VM with MFA enabled

      Currently Azure Bastion doesn't show the MFA pompt when connecting to a Linux VM via SSH when MFA is enabled. When connecting directly using a public IP and SSH the MFA prompt is correctly displayed.

    19. Pickup an SSH private key from an Azure Keyvault secret

      At the moment to login a server from the bastion host service you can paste a private ssh key or provide it from a file.
      This feature request is to propose to integrate the UI with keyvault and select the secret containing the private SSH key. Then bastion retrieve the secret value and login to the linux server.
      It is assumed the logged user on the Azure portal has permissions to list the secret keys.
