  1. Stick with the old login screen

    We would like to opt-out of the new login screen. The new login experience is good for wide-screen monitors with an aspect ratio of 16:9, but not for a normal monitor with an aspect ratio of 4:3. Although 16:9 is becoming the standard, there are still many end users who are still using a 4:3 monitor. The old login screen works well on both 16:9 and 4:3, but the new login screen only works well on 16:9, and looks awful on 4:3.

    So, how do we skip the new login screen entirely, and stick with the old one?

  3. make Service Administrator and Co-Admin the same so that as a Service Admin I can publish from Visual Studio.

    I shouldn't have to remove myself as Service Administrator so that I can add myself as a Co-Admin to be allowed access to publish from within Visual Studio.

  4. EA Admin's capability to get all subscription administrators under EA contract in Azure EA Portal

    In EA Portal, EA Admin can't get all subscription administrators under each subscription under EA contract. Only Account Owners can see subscription administrators, so to obtain all subscripiton administrators under each subscription under EA, EA admin need to contact each account owners. A request is for EA Admin to be able to see all subscription administrators under each subscription at EA portal

  5. MS Graph from Azure Web/Mobile Backend

    There should be a solution for accessing the MS Graph in an Azure Web/Mobile backend. If logging in with server-flow, the token created does not work for MS Graph. If logging in with MSAL client-flow, the token created does not work for logging in with MobileServiceClient. Seems like a no brainer, two great services, make them work together!

  6. Restore back the SKU size scaling of VMSS in the portal

    It is way easier to scale a VMSS through the portal rather than going through resource explorer.
    Furthermore the resource explorer does not provide any feedback so if you try to scale like this to an unsupported SKU size it just reverts back leaving you to wonder what happened.

  7. allow updates to streaming units without subscription access - owner or contributor

    Currently, resource group owners cannot modify/edit the streaming units in streaming analytics without being a contributor or owner of the subscription the resource group is contained within. Either create an IAM role that can be assigned or allow this access to resource group ownerse.

  8. Choose the API version in Resource Explorer

    Resource Explorer in azure portal often uses older API versions than are listed for the providers. Implement a dropdown-box for die right-side window with all available API versions for this specific REST endpoint.

  9. In the Azure Portal, require a confirmation when a VM's "Stop" button is pressed

    It's too easy to stop a VM by mistake without a confirmation being required

  11. Automatic mitigation policy based on risk type, not just severity

    Azure AD Identity Protection reports risks for my users and allows me to set policies based on severity, but not type. I'd like to treat "Impossible travel to atypical locations" differently than "Signins from unfamiliar locations" or "Signins from anonymous IPs" with an automatic mitigation policy, but I can't because those are all considered medium risk.

  12. How to import comma delimited text file (FAQ Questions & Answers) in to SQL Database

    I'm creating a FAQ bot and wanted to use the answers which are stored in our production database. So I exported the database records into a comma delimited text file. Then I wanted to import this text file into the SQL Database so the bot can refer to the rows of data there for the answers.

  13. Show permissions required in error messages and for grayed out items

    Currently it is very difficult to figure out what roles are required for specific admin functions. For example, the Active Directory add app registration button is clickable. When I enter the new information for an app, it tells me that I don't have permission to do this, but I have no idea how to request the permissions I need.

    It would be great if the error message lists the role required to perform this function. Or better yet, a button that says "Request Permission" with an automatic email to the persons who can grant permission and an optional message for…

  14. Free Trail

    Free trail for 30 days is not allowing people to practice properly. It would be better to have multiple times for 30 days. let people start from scratch every 30 days. So, they can only use it for practicing not for actual project stuff. ONLY ONE TIME is not good at all.

  15. Microsoft Linux with GUI

    I have been using Azure recently and have seen great strides towards innovation. My wish today is for Microsoft to launch a Microsoft and gradually introduce the GUI of windows into the Linux. I think a MS Linux that works like/close to Windows 10 will be the differentiator for developers such as me to use AWS and Azure more frequently. Currently learning to use App Center more.

    I have been asked the question at work and i wasn't too sure if it could be done using in tune, but after a quick google search in tune does support the ability to configure the lock screen/wall paper on iOS devices, this would be a great Basic function.

  20. RSS Feed Updates for Visual Changes in the Portal

    Can visual changes made to existing blades in the Azure Portal be notified via the Azure Updates RSS feed?

    Recovery Services Vaults was visually updated a couple of weeks back with no mention and Storage Account deployment via the Marketplace was updated earlier this week with no mention.
    A while back the VM sizes table was updated with no mention anywhere beforehand or afterwards.

    The last thing people want is to see a new interface when they need to perform a critical task, like use ASR for failover.
