  1. Improve the Free Subscription Sign-up

    I had to enter credit card details to apply for free services. Azure then said I'm not eligible (no idea why), but provides no way to delete the credit card, which now looks like Microsoft has gained under false pretenses.


    1. Microsoft should be able to do whatever eligibility test they need to do without requiring a credit card.

    2. Microsoft should provide a way to delete credit card details, or better yet, not keep them at all for failed subscription requests.

    3. Provide some clue as to why a free subscription request fails. There is just no info whatsoever on what test…

  3. How about we pay with crypto-currency?

    Instead of Credit/Debit card maybe we can provide wallets?

  6. New Azure subscription for Education/evaluation purpose

    My suggestion is that Microsoft Azure creates a account subscription that is for education only/validation. Full featured bu 10% (or even less) of the workload assosiated with a full subscription.
    The IoTHub has 400000 messages / day.. On the education subscription 40000 is more than enought. (even 4000 would work)
    On SQL and databases a database reduced to size will work for education use. A SQL database with 100 tables and/or 10000 records is enought sample data to learn azzure without limitations of time. (30 days)
    Organisations are not so Quick in adopting new strategies like Azure. Sometimes it takes…

  8. Increase amount of time students have to learn Azure

    I am a student doing a 8 week course on-line that includes learning Azure. I was doing this so I can get a job as a Microsoft developer. Yet given the short 30 day free trial period of Azure it would not be possible to complete the course before my Azure access expires.

    I am thinking of moving to AWS that provides reasonable level of access, to match with intermediate course, for 12 months.

    So buy a subscription? Being a student I do not have enough money too.
    So get a job you say? I have one and work 8…

  10. Let a potential user knows early in the process that they are not eligible for free offer

    How about letting a potential user knows early in the process that they are not eligible for free offer? I have been put through filling every form, phone & email & credit card verification, only to be told that I am not eligible. I don't think this is very nice.

  11. Frequently accessed pages are taking more than 5-30 seconds to load, do you track it proactively to know the end user experience?

    I think one way to track the end user experience is to introduce a code against frequently accessed links, pages, buttons etc... to record the time taken by the page, link or the button and send it back to a team/bot who/which can monitor and alert the support team proactively. This can be further tracked across the regions to know if it is a local issue or something that needs to be centrally fixed(server end). I am sure you will delight the customers by proactively tracking and fixing performance issues before the users complain about it.

    Do let me know…

  12. Account name

    How about showing me what my "Account Name" is somewhere in the portal or from a cli since all the commands I run require "account-name" and I have no idea what that is... it's certainly not "Visual Studio Enterprise with MSDN" as is listed by az account show.

  14. PLEASE MAKE IT EASY AND SIMPLE TO DISABLE Servers/Service setup during trial

    I thought to give it a try get familiarize with Azure using current subscription. Setup SQL Database using resource group and Onprem integrationGateway. just to find later my subscription reached limit...Hmmm I could not even (had been using Microsoft technologies in general) find how to temporary DISABLE so no charges occur until next time login etc. VERY FRSUTRATED.

  15. Since Azure is so poorly documented and so difficult, can you extend trials to more than 30 days.

    Since Azure is so poorly documented and so difficult, can you extend trials to more than 30 days. I have spent my entire 30 day trial trying to get it working and still no luck. Now what do I do?

  16. Add SDK/documentation link to each solution/service

    Select Azure active directory, provide a link to all associated SDK/documentation for Azure AD. eg. How to create new user in python or available programing language. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/python/api/overview/azure/activedirectory?view=azure-python)

  17. Option to show Don't ask again for XX days" for "Remember Multi-Factor Authentication" to specific roles or groups

    Currently "Don't ask again for XX days" message due to "Remember Multi-Factor Authentication" is shown for all users regardless of admins or normal users.

    It is good if admins can control who can see "Don't ask again for XX days" message depending on their roles or groups. With this function, privileged users will not see "Don't ask again for XX days" and it prevents enabling the checkbox mistakenly.
