    • Add ability to view the elastic pool scaling progress/percent complete in SSMS or portal and also to kill the scaling process and resubmit

      Add ability to view the elastic pool scaling progress/percent complete in SSMS or portal and also to kill the scaling process and resubmit scaling just in case if its stuck due to MSFT internal maintenance or any other factors.

          • Provide notifications when restoring an Azure SQL database

            I've been using the portal this morning to restore a Azure SQL database and there's no indication of progress. I'd expect something to pop up in the notification area saying when it's started and completed, ideally with an estimated time.

            • Azure SQL Server Database Next Gen Alerts

              The Upgrade which took place from Junaury 22, 2019 should lay the foundation for enabling next generation alerts.

              • Add our own customized rule on Vulnerability Assessment

                The Vulnerability Assessment has a good E2E experience.
                While, we would like to leverage it E2E (UX, backend running, etc) and implement our own Rules for our own SQL Server/DBs.

                • SET LANGUAGE (Azure SQL Database)

                  When running queries against an Azure SQL Database (using SSMS, for example), "SET LANGUAGE" returned "Changed language setting to Deutsch."

                  However, error messages remain in English.

                  For example, run this query "select *, BadColumn from sys.syslanguages" gives you "Invalid column name 'BadColumn'."

                  When doing the same steps against a regular SQL Database on premise, this would have returned "Ungültiger Spaltenname "BadColumn"."

                    Please improve the time zone of Azure SQL Database so that users can change it.

                    When migrating to Azure SQL Database, it takes a lot of time to change all the programs of the application.

                    • Add Spring JPA for Azure SQL Database Elastic Scale

                      The SQL elastic database seems a very good idea but in order to avoid writing sql code for each query and reduce boiler code, it would be great to have it integrated with Spring JPA.

                      • Add the ability to set expiry date for Server Firewall Rules

                        I am on-site a client site frequently and access a Azure SQL Database over a 4G connection that has a dynamic IP address, so every time I connect I need to go add a Firewall rule for my current IP address, I would like to be able to set an expiry on these rules so that I don't have to remember each day to go clean them up.

                        • Inconsistent pricing in SQL database and SQL reservation blades

                          Azure Portal contains the following relevant blades:
                          * 'Configure' blade for SQL database (or SQL database pool)
                          * 'Create SQL Reserved vCore' blade for purchasing SQL reservations

                          *SQL reservation blade*
                          The SQL reservation blade contains an annotation next to quoted reservation cost, which indicates a discount off the PAYG rate.
                          For example, the blade might display something like 'Reservation cost AUD 1,416; Estimated savings 35%'.
                          It is noted that the Reservation Price is expressed on a 1-year or 3-year basis. This value can be easily converted to a monthly equivalent rate by dividing by 12 or 36, as the case…

                          • Keep Azure SQL Premium RS

                            Microsoft should reconsider retiring the Premium RS tier of Azure SQL. It provides a service for companies like ours that want to host their QA/Staging environments in Azure but don't need the full reliability of the Premium tier. None of your other offerings will work for us. We make use of In-Memory tables (OLTP). This option is only available in the Premium/Business Critical tiers. Both of which are too expensive for QA/Staging environments. To retire this option without providing anything of comparable value is a mistake. How can customers feel confident in moving their applications to the cloud if Microsoft…

                                  • uniquely identify Azure SQL DB scaling operation via activity log

                                    when we scale up/down app plan, activity log alert has information that it was scaled up/down. similarly we want to have a feature for SQL Scaling.

                                    when we scale up /down a SQL db activity log JSON has no information about the operationg it just says "Microsoft.Sql/servers/databases/write" can it include current and requested tier as well. feature can help build inventory of scaling time and tier.. we are doing this for app plan's currently.

                                    • Please add a firewall rule option to allow access to Azures Services only within your subscription

                                      Currently, in the firewall rules, there is an option to allow access to Azure services. This allows anyone with an Azure subscription to potentially access your database. It would be awesome if there was a way to restrict this to only allow access from resources within the same subscription.

                                      • Implement error handling if data sync runs and no changes are found - Even though the data has changed!!

                                        If tables / provisioning is screwed up due - to a schema change, And sync runs and nothing is updated and no errors are displayed.

                                        Please show something! I had 1000 of changes, sync ran... nothing updated, No Error.

                                        • Enforced use of MFA on Azure SQL Database

                                          It is my understanding that currently access with MFA for an Azure SQL Server database has to be set up per (collection of) user(s). This could lead to a situation that at some moment for one or more users this may have been forgotten for a resource that would need such a security measure.
                                          Therefore, I would expect that it should also be possible to enforce MFA use on a resource like an Azure SQL Server Database when that would require such measures.
                                          I'm not sure where enforcing access with MFA on a resource level would fit in the Azure…
