  5. IAM - Specify User Name First and then Role

    Every time I want to add a user to IAM, I start typing the user name in the role dropdown box... and I've seen many others do the same.

    It suggests a natural tendency to specify users first, and then specify roles and the portal should be updated to match

  8. Azure VM creation via powershell

    When we create virtual machine by portal it gives us restriction to create a password 12 character long but when we create it by using Power shell, it takes 8 characters as well. Please fill this gap and make it symmetric.

  14. Set Up Azure for a Small Business (5 employees), with a Virtual File Server

    Set up Azure for a small business with 5 employees. The five employees (users) should be able to login from a computer anywhere and access the company files by mapping a network drive on the local machine to the Azure file server. Each user should also have a folder mapped to their local machine that is private to them (the other users cannot see the contents of the folder. The connection must be secured, based on modern best practices.

  15. Add ability to toggle / switch vm size selection widget to new tabular form vice versa.

    Suggest to add the ability to switch between old vm size widgets view to new tabular format vice versa. Descriptive tabular format is not enough always. But sometimes logically grouped widgets with visual effects give better focus than tabular format.

  16. Ability to Input Detailed Installation Steps during SQL Server Setup

    During the automatic VM creation with SQL Server, I was unable to input certain parameters that the regular SQL Server Setup prompts for, such as Collation (even the Azure DB setup prompts for this) and Installation Directories. It would be helpful to have "Advanced Installation" options to allow users to specify these features. Because these options were unavailable, I had to run uninstall/reinstall for the SQL Server and now the Azure Portal does not recognize my SQL Server installation the way it did for the automatically installed SQL Server installation.

  17. Ability to add new applications roles in azure AD using power shell/portal

    When we need a new application role to be assigned to the Azure AD application, we have to change the manifest files. Instead of that, if we have the option to add via portal itself or PowerShell cmdlet. This will save a lot of time.

  19. VM Selection Filter that shows the VMs with Accelerated Networking.

    For the workloads I am working with, almost all of them require Accelerated Networking. There is no easy way to find this unless you select an VM that does not via script and then parse the error message. Allowing this via the portal would make this so much easier.

  20. Quality checking

    The appliances listed under Virtual machines should be quality tested before published. Example: the 'Alfresco Community Certified by Bitnami' isn't working after install/deplyment - it is also poorly/wrongly documented. What is the Azure team currently doing to quality check OS and appliances?
