    • Mandatory cost-centre selection for each billable resource

      Enable the Billing Admin to switch on mandatory tagging of all billable resources with a 'cost centre', to be selected from a list.

      Currently, 'Resource Categories' are irrelevant to management accountants, they are interested only in monitoring the total cost attributed to each cost-centre (division).

      • Microsoft makes it too easy to delete production VM's, Storage and Infrastructure

        This can be a catastrophic event if backups are not made.
        A secondary account holder should be contacted before the VM's, resource managers and storage are deleted.

        • Easy way to send a IIS recycle command to Azure Cloud Service instances

          Sometimes, we might need to restart the Azure Cloud Services instances just to make sure application running on IIS is restarted. Normally we could have done this by doing RDP and recycle the app from the application. But this is painful. Instead of this, we prefer to restart the machine directly within the portal.

          But restart takes much time than recycle operation. Hence, it would be great if we had an option to send IIS recycle command to machine.

          Thank you

          • Allow VM capture to cool storage

            The VM capture in the portal should offer (as default) the option to store the captured data in the cheapest storage available (cool / archive)
            Since the backup is typically accessed on disasters (hopefully never) it makes no sense to pay the frequent access tier price for this data.
            I know that actually there is a blob format issue for vhds that use page blobs vs cool storage that use block blob , but I leave this conversion problems to your engineers, as a user what I want is an easy, frictionless service right in the portal, that backups my…

              • Moving resources from a zero-credit subscription to a new one

                Currently, if a resource is associated to a subscription whose credit goes to zero, it's not possible to assign the resource to a new subscription with non-zero credit. Please make it possible! Often I cannot refund the zero-credit old subscription, but I have credit in another one, but I cannot move it because Azure says "Current subscription is disabled". Thanks!

                • Bring back Search in NSG Rules panel!

                  I see there is a tweak in panel when adding a new security rule to NSG, but now the Search field is missing for Inbound and Outbound rules! Bring it back PLS!!! It helped us manage the rules (and of course add Description field ;))

                        • Password expiration remainder

                          It would be good to have message notification (i.e. on azure portal) about password expiration for an app or user i.e. "password for X will expiry in Y days".
                          Also it would be good to have notification that password just expired.

                          At the moment my application password expired in Active Directory but there was no information. Suddenly my app started throwing exception when was trying to access Azure resources. It took some time to figure out what is going on and took my app down for some time.

                          • Microsoft Translate Academic Partnership

                            I'm PhD researcher focused on machine translation services. I developed a web application which connects to three different APIs: Microsoft Translator, Google Translate and Yandex Translator. In the past years my application was working with Microsoft Translator without problem. However, now, when I connect to Microsoft Translator I'm receiving the following message: “403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. Server Error 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.”. As far as I could understand my API access to Microst Translator was shut down. I was…

                                I am working as Devops Engineer. Most of our clients were using AWS, and as part of evaluation of Azure, I am going through your services I can see that your api calls ( settings change, VM provision etc) take more time than convenience time slot. Is this delay depends on subscription package?

                                        • Transfer subscription from one id to another id

                                          It will be great if one resource in company moving out and his/her subscription can be given to some other resource in that company. This will be useful if the people are working within a project. This removes the additional overhead of creating new subscriptions
