  1. Support Managed Service Identity

    We made application that uses Managed Service Identity.
    It's easy and friendly way to access Azure Key Vault that contains some secrets.

    Actually, Azure Batch is not support Managed Service Identity.
    In this situation, We have to make another application between MSI enabled environment (Azure VM, Web Apps) and disabled environment (Azure Batch).

    We don't want writing secrets in application package, environment variables and clear text configuration.
    We want strongly Managed Service Identity in Azure Batch.

  2. Azure batch node disk encryption

    It would be helpful for azure batch to have encryption at rest for a layer of protection for task temporary files.

    The discussion here illustrates it's overly tricky:

  3. Show in Pool view in Portal (and over API therefore Batch Explorer) when nodes require recovery or are recovering

    Currently when a node requires recovery or is recovering, it shows up as Idle in the portal and in Batch Explorer. It should be made clear that this node is not available for use.
