  1. "SQL Server In Azure VM" AUTOPROTECT Feature To Filter (User DBs, system DBs, etc)

    The AutoProtect enablement is an all-or-nothing concept. In comparison the old SQL Management Job Creation Wizard creates a backup job with options like "Include UserDbs only".

    We should be able to filter the AutoProtect feature similarly. It should enable auto backups of databases, but not everything on the server like "model" and "master"

    Options for filtering:
    * UserDbs
    * manual exclusion list
    * manual inclusion list based on pattern.

  3. Separate backup jobs within MARS Agent

    Separate backup jobs within MARS Agent. Currently, there is only one backup job that can be created within the MARS Agent. We should have the ability to create several different jobs with various schedules and data sets to back up. Not all data can be backed up at the same time. It would also make it a bit easier to restore as in not having to mount the VHDX file that stores all the data sets backed up.

  7. Selectively delete backups, and choice to delete backups without 14 days retention

    There are instances whereby we want a complete/selective deletion of backup data without the 14 days retention policy. Currently, when I choose to backup a particular folder on my server using the MARS agent, and decide that I want a complete wipe of that data from Azure, I have to stop the backup policy and wait for 14 days for total deletion. In-between these 14 days, I'm stuck without an option to backup to Azure if I require a clean slate.

  9. Require a Security PIN to Reduce any retention settings.

    Require a Security PIN to reduce any retention ranges. In certain cyber attack scenarios where Ransomware infects a server, a cyber attacker could penetrate the environment, and open the Azure Backup MARS software and edit the retention range down to 7 day minimum. The attacker could then encrypt portions of the network, and initiate backups to overwrite and purge good data. Over holidays such as Christmas, 7 days might not be enough time to realize a breach has occured.
    Currently AzureBackup is a fantastic protection against Ransomware, however we have seen Human hackers enter the network and seek out backup…

  11. Add MAB (MARS) support to Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupJob

    "Get Jobs cmdlet doesn't support MAB workloads. Even though the APIs support it, but the PowerShell module only supports AzureVM, AzureFiles, and AzureWorkload today."

    Please add support.

  12. Implement CLI command that can export/import an entire Key Vault to a file.

    If a customer wants to backup or restore the contents of a key vault, the customer is forced to export/import keys, secrets and certificates one by one.

    There should be an Azure CLI command to export a Key Vault in its entirety, and the same with import, something like:

    az keyvault backup --file <FileName> --vault-name <VaultName>

    az keyvault restore --file <FileName> --vault-name <VaultName>

  13. Show expiry time of file share backups in portal and PowerShell

    When creating a file share backup in the portal (see attached screenshot) or via PowerShell (with the cmdlet Backup-AzRecoveryServicesBackupItem and the parameter -ExpiryDateTimeUTC) a retention date is set. I would like to be able to view this date in the portal and with the PowerShell cmdlet Get-AzRecoveryServicesBackupRecoveryPoint.
