  1. Azure AD sign-in activity log should record and show sign-ins from service principal

    Currently, Azure AD sign-in activity log only shows user activities. Sign-ins from service principal (certificate or client id/key) is not recorded. So it is difficult for customers to know if service principal is maliciously used by certificate or key leak.

  2. Automatically dismiss Security Center recommendations when the resource has been deleted

    Currently, Security Center provides recommendations for all resources, including resources which have been deleted. There should be an option to dismiss any Security Center Recommendations related to a resource that is deleted. If they can't be dismissed, then there should be some form of indicator on the recommendation that the resource was deleted along with the date of the deletion.

  5. Is there a way to find what all is running at present

    Display all services/resources at present active in a single screen categorically to switch services on/off/resume/enable/disable.

    This eases managing services cost effectively esp when we are working with limited budget (Bizspark) and same applies to SMB and Enterprises.

  7. allow not operator when searching azure ad sign-ins log by location

    I would like a way to search the azure ad sign-ins log for locations NOT = US (or any other country). Currently, there is not a way to do this. I need to search on each non-US country code individually (i.e. IN, RO, MX, GB, etc), and there are many. Allowing the use of the not operator would allow me to see this information with a single search.

  9. Show Kudu sites in "Metrics per Instance" chart

    The "Metrics per Instance" chart accessed from an App Service Plan blade is invaluable for diagnosing load on an app service plan shared between different app services.

    The overall CPU / memory load of the ASP doesn't always make sense however, as the app services are not the only things running. If the Kudu web app is running out of control (see https://github.com/Azure/azure-webjobs-sdk/issues/1050 for an example) this is tricky to identify. Showing the Kudu web apps on the "Metrics per Instance" chart would make this much easier.

  12. Azure Usage/Consumption

    Please provide a admin portal like your other 365 sites that allow for usage tracking and consumption of azure resources. There are many third party tools that do this but in my opinion they should be part of the service that you are providing. I don't want to have to run powershell scripts to generate usage data, I want a web interface that provides a clean insight to everything that I have in azure and I want to be able to take actions on certain areas if needed. It is very disappointing that this was overlooked in this product release.

  14. The failed resources errors are not helping

    currently the erros do not help AT ALL, I have a job that creates hundreds of machines, some of them fail (sometimes), activity logs show success while the errors show things such as "internal error in disk manager".. nothing beside that!

  16. Add memory monitoring to the portal

    My VM is behaving like it's starved of memory. Node.js applications are failing with allocation errors (which is probably a symptom - as the V8 engine sets the size according to what if finds) and there's nothing in the portal to suggest what has changed. (This has only just started happening).

    It would be good if the portal showed us physical memory (in so far as physical memory is a thing for a VM), and memory usage.

  18. Email Alert whenever an Azure Data Factory Instance gets created (Not on update) across any subscription in the organization.

    Presently there is no such functionality available that triggers Alert whenever an Azure Data Factory Instance is created. The Activity log provides alerts based on "Create or Update" but not the create only option. Or system provisioning which will show all the list of ADFs created across the subscriptions. An analytics service needed over monitoring the creation of ADF and alert on ADF creation. Who created When its created, resource group and location details should be captured in this feature.

  19. Correctly log the user moving subscriptions

    Hi,recenlty we had an issue due to an human error.
    An operator accidentally moved a subscription from between two tenants.
    From the log available on the portal we could not identify who did this activity.
    It would be very helpful to have this kind of activity correctly logged

  20. Ingest Azure DevOps Audit logs

    Currently in Azure DevOps the audit logs are retained for only 90 days. Additionally, searching through the audit logs requires a download of csv/json audit logs.

    There needs to be functionality between Azure Workspace and Azure DevOps so that Audit logs at an Organization level can be ingested into a Workspace. Our corporate security has requirement that audit logs be maintained far beyond 90 days. The only solution now is to cron a script to load audit data to some external data store. Why not extend the current capabilities of workspaces, monitoring and app insights to include ingesting Azure DevOps…
