  1. Custom RBAC role to only allow the assignment of TAGS on resources.

    Would be nice to have a custom RBAC role in the Azure portal created that allows a user to ONLY be able to set TAGS on resources, resource groups and/or subscriptions for billing purposes.

      • IAM Access Control integration

        Since IAM Access Control is available per resources and can be combined with MSI now, it would be great to make use of these features inside ARM template.

        Take this use-case: I create a new VM and someResource. The VM runs a daemon, which is supposed to modify someResource whenever needed. It's easy to click this setup in the portal and make VM a Contributor for someResource, but impossible to deploy using arm template. Technically, I'm aware that privileges live elsewhere (in AAD), but from user perspective, intuitively they are an attribute of arm resource.

        BTW, this one is linked…

        • Key Vault in ARM Template

          As an solution engineer, i would like to manage and pass security credential through key vault only but what i have noticed in custom arm template deployment, it is not accepting key vault information from parameter.jason file.
          Can this feature enable?

            • ARM Template Builder GUI

              As a User, it would be nice to build ARM Templates in a visual way. This would allow me to connect resources together, whether they exist or will need to be created at the time of building the template.

              Example:
              Create an Azure Function App that has HTTP Trigger, with Queue Storage as ingress and Table Storage as egress. Managed by APIM.

              This would create a template for me and deploy the resources as well. I could then define specifics within the interface I am creating the template visually.

              • Call user-defined functions from linked template

                It would be great is there was a possibility to call user-defined functions from a linked template.

                In this way you don't have to rewrite or copy/paste all the naming functions to the new templates that you are creating.

                When thinking of governance this would also be great because you can give users only read permissions to the "functions" templates so they can't change the naming convention for example.

                • nesting user-defined functions

                  Currently I'm using the user-defined functions within my ARM templates which is really great.
                  The limitation that I'm hitting is that it is not possible to call another user-defined function from the current.

                  I have a function (generateVMName) that does some magic concat to create a name for a VM.
                  What I would like to achieve is to call the (generateVMName) function from within another function (generateDiskName) so I don't have to redo all the concats again and only add the specific disk naming options.

                  • Release the word LOGIN for customers to use.

                    From the docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/resource-manager-reserved-resource-name
                    "
                    The following words cannot be used as either a whole word or a substring in the name:

                    I named my project contained the word Login in VSTS, subdomain, even an app service website.

                    Do I have to rename it just to keep it consistent?

                    • Tags for Resource Groups

                      I you TAG Resource groups they will not appear in your billing portal as you need to TAG individual resources rather than Resource Groups. The wording under TAGs is incorrect. This information came about after a support call was raised. Please be aware when Tagging!

                      • Create or Generate (or Get) Bot Service password

                        As a developer, I would like to dynamically create Bot Framework bots in Azure (Bot Channels Registration resources), and use them from NodeJS backend. The creation goes well with azure-cli (with botservice extension), but azure-cli does not allow me to create or generate a password (Microsoft App Password, or App Secret) for the bots. I guess a password is generated upon registration but I am also unable to get that password.

                        I am creating a "Bot Channels Registration" with the following commands:

                        $ az bot create --kind registration --location "global" --sku S1 -e <url> --resource-group <group> --name <resource-name> --p "something" …

                        • Adding permission audit for Azure Policy

                          To effectively govern my Azure environment, I'd like to audit my Azure resources (target to resource provider i.e. Microsoft.Compute) to make sure only allowed groups have access. If a resource provider has unauthorized access, it becomes non-compliant resource then I can have an action to remote that access.

                          • Enable Automation Script to support all resource types

                            Rightnow Automation script excludes many resource types in a resource group.. it would be better if Microsoft can handle this scenario while development of new types in Azure as part of development life cycle.

                                  • Ability to disable Lock inheritance

                                    Today, if you apply a lock to a resource group, it will apply to both:
                                    - Resource group
                                    - Any existing or new object within that resource group

                                    What I'd to do is have a resource group have a Lock that only applies to it. In other words, ability to deselect inheritance. This is handy for protecting resource groups from being deleted in one operation, but doesn't limit individual changes. Present day Locks imply once a resource group is created, it is "Locked" to that state forever - which makes logical sense but doesn't seem to fit in spirit of…

                                    • Tagging of classic resources

                                      I have a Service Bus Namespace that is tagged. It is the only resource in a resource group that is the only resource group in the subscription.

                                      When evaluating the costs on the subscription there is an untagged cost classified as Other classic resources => Base Unit - Standard Messaging.

                                      My problem is that the tags from the Service Bus Namespace is not inherited to the Base Unit - Standard Messaging, and tagging on the Service Bus Namespace is the lowest level of tagging I have access to.

                                      Could inheriting of the tags from the Service Bus Namespace to the…

                                      • Automatically generated template and "circular dependency".

                                        I have created first VM from Azure portal interface and it works good. I tried to deploy second VM using ARM template that is available from first VM. And I can't do it quickly. Primarily, I have to solve task with some dependency loops because I got message 'Circular dependency detected on resource: '/subscriptions/xxxxxxxxx/resourceGroups/MOD03VDSC/providers/Microsoft.Network/networkInterfaces/autoconfigvm7312'.
                                        You can't use template soon after creating VM by portal. This template will not work. You will get an error. Firstly you have to analyze this template for circular dependency instead of use it immediately.
                                        In this template in declaration of network interface there is a…

                                        • Option to recover deleted Tags

                                          Hello Team,

                                          1. Could you please add option recover the deleted TAG from the portal.
                                          2. Activity log shows only the modified tags, not the old tags. It would be great if you add both old and new tag values.
