  1. 'create r model' doesn't provide custom R package reference option

    Two requests:
    1. 'Create R Model' doesn't provide package input option unless it's preinstalled in AzureML. For example, wanted to develop custom recommender system (other than matchbox) using 'recommenderlab' package. I am not able to refer as .zip package in 'create R model' for 'recommenderlab' package. We should have an option to refer explicit package reference option in custom 'create R model.

    2. Custom R package are to be referred everytime user uses it. This is a bit of overkill. Request your help to keep that package till user exits the session. This will streamline process quite a bit.

    • [BUG] Saving existing trained model doesn't overvrite the existing one

      When trying to overwrite an existing trained model, Azure ML Studio will create a duplicated trained model (see the attached picture). When I try to delete the oldest one, both the duplicated trained models disappear. Then, if I try to create the same trained model (with the same name) again, that name is cached even if I deleted it. I have to refresh the page in order to remove that name from cache.

      • Save the state of kernels in notebooks

        It would be nice if we could save the state of notebook kernels so that we didn't have to re-run all the code after being disconnected.

        • group by

          Hello,

          It would be nice to have a "Group by" Like function as in sql

          to make SUM,Min,Max,Count,AVG on some column

          I saw it would be possible with R script. Bu I have never worked with it

          • Choose order of operations for text preprocessing

            The current documentation is vague with regards to order of operations of the text preprocessing module.

            Having the ability to select the order in which the transformations are applied would greatly improve the utility of the module and prevent the need for chaining many text processing modules to achieve desired results.

            • Package management

              The current way of adding additional R packages to Azure ML is insanely time consuming. There should be a way to install packages from CRAN along with the required dependencies.

              I have tried to install the tidytext package using the method described here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/benjguin/2014/09/24/how-to-upload-an-r-package-to-azure-machine-learning/

              When installing tidytext into a clean package library directory there are a total of 23 dependent packages that get installed. I then need to reference which ones are already installed on Azure, check if the version is up to date, package, upload and then install individually (in the correct order).

              Azure ML Studio should be able…

              • "compare to" in visualization

                I am inrolled in the online course "essentials of data science" and in many of the videos we can go to a model, visualize it and show scatterplots/diagrams by chosing "compare to". When I try this myself with my own models there are, in some of the cases, no "compare to". It is a really useful function when working with feature engineering, why is it only available in some cases? How can I make it available all the time?

                    • Re-publishing the scoring experiment not updating the existing Non Default Endpoint

                      I have Training and Scoring Experiments ,both published as web service and scheduled via ADF.

                      The scoring experiment recently got changed and I republished again.

                      But the Non default scoring end point is not taking the changes done to the scoring experiment even after re-publish. Do I need to create a new non default end point every time if any changes done the experiment ?

                      Ideally re-publishing should update all existing endpoints.

                      • Get serious with Datasets! Beat Kaggle

                        If you are serious about ML Studio, you'd rather include hundreds and hundreds sample datasets. We should see 2-3 samples for each algorithm. Two sets for each dataset needed: 1. real, dirty data 2. the same but clean data. So user could concentrate on cleaning or on the algorithm side of the problem. Datasets should be in categories and with tags... you have fantazy, right?
                        Samples for different user categories: students, scientists, developers, kids.
                        Samples for different tasks: study, competitions, science (Yes! Please, include datasets for *real* problems in science)
                        We should beat Kaggle in this aspect (why not ImageNet?)

                          • Use On-premises Gateway instead of Data Management gateway for on-prem Data Sources

                            On-premises Gateway is used by various Azure Services as well as Power BI for on-premises Data Source connections. Using the On-premises Gateway instead of the Data Management gateway would simplify installation and management (one gateway for ALL Azure Services) and would allow to use other on-prem data sources other than SQL Server (Oracle, Teradata, Files, ...)

                                • Import/Export experiments and all related assets in a file

                                  I would like to be able to have a functionality within the Studio for importing exporting the experiments in a file (possibly JSON format but even a proprietary binary would be fine as well).

                                  The file should contain all the assets (not only their references like it happens now) so that I can seamlessly move experiments from different environments (QUAL-PROD etc.) and different subscriptions.

                                  Moreover this would allow to better share the experiments within the community storing the file for e.g. in github.

                                  • Add RMeCab package

                                    I want to use RMecab package in Azure ML, which is a popular tool for text segmentation in Japanese. We cannot use RMecab only by the 'install.packages' command because RMeCab needs Mecab installed in a server (http://taku910.github.io/mecab/#download )

                                    • Add anytime package to AML Studio R installed packages

                                      Could you add anytime R package to AML Studio as intalled R package so we do not have to import it as script bundle from a zip file each time we would like to use it?
