We use Geo Replicated Secondaries to distribute query load among the secondaries. Right now, QDS is only available for the Primary. It would be really nice if we could use all the power of QDS on the secondaries to diagnose issues.44 votes
OData's AtomPub protocol is very verbose. My calculations indicate that AtomPub multiplies Data Transfer Out bytes by a factor of 8.75. (See Querying OData.org’s SQL Azure Northwind Sample Data Service: http://oakleafblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/odataorgs-sql-azure-northwind-sample.html).
Despite the Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate header, SQL Azure OData responses aren''t compressed. I agree with this comment by Scott Hanselman - failure to compress OData responses is LAME.41 votes
We think we understand the scenario here. We’d like more information on the scenario. Please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our customers would like to configure the timing of LTR backups or manually create a LTR backup to restore the several databases from the exact same time.41 votes
It would be a very nice feature to be able to swap a staging database to production without renaming or downtiming.
Upgrade Azure SQL Database in Standard tier from 12.0.2000.8 to 14.0.1000.169 and enable memory-optimized tables and natively compiled stored procedures.40 votes
SQL Azure do support Full Text Search but thesaurus is not included. I know few partners requesting for this feature because for their ecommerce portal they are using SQL Azure and User Search is an integral part in any ecommerce portal. They are finding it hard to design an appropriate search functionality without out of the box thesaurus support.
Incase SQL Azure team can take-up this feature that would be great.
Currently it seems that because the firewall rules for an Azure SQL DB are just proxy resources in an ARM template that you can not remove them via this mechanism. If you remove them from the ARM template, they are not removed from the Azure SQL DB resource. This means that it is not possible to properly source control the configuration as the source controlled configuration can differ from reality. I think it is vital to allow people to properly manage the Azure SQL DB as code that you work allow the rules to be removed via the ARM template.39 votes
Sometimes it would be good to cancel a scale event instead of letting it finish, then re-scaling back.
- Human error when creating scale event (Wrong DB, Wrong Size, etc).
- Scale event taking too long

Thank you for your feedback. We are working to implement this functionality and will respond back one the public preview is available.
We have our SharePoint 2013 on Azure IaaS and we would like to use Azure SQL for our databases instead of running SQL Server VMs.
We'd also like to use SQL Azure for our Access Services databases. Office 365 does this already.37 votes
Thanks for your feedback. I’ll have something more to share shortly.

SQL Server/Database currently supports writing audit logs to Blob storage. Then something like https://github.com/Microsoft/Azure-SQL-DB-auditing-OMS-integration needs to be used to process audit log files into OMS Log Analytics. It would be really nice if Azure SQL Server/Database audit logging supported sending audit logs directly to an OMS Log Analytics workspace.36 votes
Please add support of alpha numeric ORDER BY of text values. A good sample you will find here: http://www.davekoelle.com/alphanum.html
Without this feature is impossible to made a paging (skip, take) of for example file names.36 votes
Thanks for your feedback.
While we understand the problem, we have no plans at this stage. If you could share more details on your scenario?
Allow storage account with vnet and behind firewall to be used for SQL's advanced threat protection.
As described in Microsoft documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/sql-database/sql-database-auditing#subheading-1 a storage account behind firewall and a storage account with vnet is currently not supported for SQL's advanced threat protection.
This possess a high security risk where the logs will visible to anyone with access to the subscription, sas uri or storage account key.
We expect this to be fixed and enhanced so that a storage account with vnet and behind firewall can be used for SQL's advanced threat protection.35 votes
For Java shops, we need an API for Azure SQL Database Elastic Scale. We already have too much code and want to minimize the amount of refactoring to move up to Azure SQL Database. We're very interested in Elastic Scale. Without a Java API, this a non-starter for us.35 votes
Thanks for your feedback here. Let me find an answer and get back to you.
Force user to read replica Azure SQL Database where Read Scale-Out has been Enabled and user only has readonly access,
Is there any way to force a user to read from a read only replica where that user has only been granted readonly access to a database? It seems that we're relying on any external application to be a good citizen and provide the ApplicationIntent in the connection string.35 votes

Company security restrictions do not allow to open port 80, 443, 1433, ... (or other) from a vNet / VPN to the Internet.
Mapping Azure services with a public IP to a vNet should become a general feature (not only for SQL as requested in the following request).

Would be useful to right-click and rename a SQL Azure database. I tried renaming it in the VS SQL Server Object Explorer, but that broke the portal -- it always hung when trying to navigate to the database.34 votes
Thanks for your feedback here. While we won’t be adding support to rename a DB in the portal, you can rename in T-SQL and we will also adding an ARM API.
I have clients across the country that I want to encourage to use Azure. Without changing a lot of code in the program I need to set the time zone on each database.33 votes
Since the IP addresses listed in the documentation below are subject to change, proactive notifications should be provided to ensure users can make necessary updates to their environment before changes occur. This could be an email to affected resource owners, or a notification within the Portal such as through Service Health or Resource Health.
