  1. Set storage classifcations for disks in the VM Role for better placement rules

    The VM Role uses differencing disks. So the placement of the parent disk is crucial (because of I/O requirements)

    Thanks for the feedback! Though it may not be built in, our 3rd party billing partners help to fill this gap by bringing showback/chargeback to the WAP portal.

    I see mention of chargeback, XaaS, and creation of forms, can I ask for clarification of what you would like to see light up in the portal?

    We are looking into this. And as Samir mentioned, a workaround via SMA may apply to your scenario in the time being.

    Thank you for your suggestion! As part of an update release this year, we added functionality to WAP to allow for multiple custom themes to support reseller scenarios. There is more that can be added, though, to support this scenario. It would be helpful to hear from you all who voted on this feature about the reseller scenarios you are trying to support to help inform us when making design choices.

  13. Build a graphical runbook design console for SMA with drag and drop items

    Thank you. Could you be more explicit about which resources and which metrics you are referring to?

  15. Provide a Windows Authenitcation site for the Tenant Site

    The tenants now authenticate against a SQL .Net Membership provider. An AD authentication site similar as for the Admin Site would fit certain scenario's where ADFS is not an option

  18. Choose a subnet when modifying the network settings for a VM.

    Today, we can add several address spaces inside a virtual network on the portal, but when setting a particular VM, we can only choose the virtual network, not the subnet (which is present when viewing into the VMM console)

    Thank you for your feedback! We understand this limitation of the databases resource provider and certainly would like to make this experience better for our users!
