  1. In Visual Studio- remove(validate) warning if my api version from variables

    Now, in a templates frequently apiversion defined in variable or in parameters, but visual studio can't recognize it and highlight it.

    We need some sort of "precompiler" or "prevalidater" to avoid this false positive highlight

  2. Improve formatting of output from ARM scripts in Visual Studio.

    Visual Studio shows the output of Azure Resource Manager scripts but the output is not very readable as all name/type/values are output wrapped within around 50 chars.
    Can the output be widened for readability?

  3. Sort ASM / ARM fiasco

    Sort ASM / ARM fiasco and quick. Never should there be compatability issues within the same cloud e.g expressroute v1 and ARM Vnets

  5. More robust APIs, too many intermittent errors creating/removing ResourceGroups

    It's very difficult to automate against Azure due to random failures and inconsistencies.

    For example tear down a Resource Group and wait for delete to complete. When Azure says it's delete run a script to re-create the ResourceGroup with same name. Even though it says deleted, the APIs complain the resources of same name are already in use.

    After an indeterminable amount of time after delete, the same script can successfully recreate the ResourceGroup. This causes a lot of problems. If it reports deleted, then it should be deleted. State should always be known and accurate.

    Likewise when creating resources…

  6. how to identify who created the virtual machine or any other resources under our subscription

    We have a subscription. Most of my team members are admins. We are trying to clean up the resources by decommissioning the unused resources. For this, we need to know as to who created these resources so that we can directly connect with them. Is there any way?

  8. Add distinct function...

    Create a new distinct function to return a distinct list of elements in an array. For example, if you had ui and service web apps that each needed to be deployed to potentially overlapping regions, you could stand up Microsoft.Web/serverFarms in a based on a concatenated list of locations (https://feedback.azure.com/forums/281804-azure-resource-manager/suggestions/11677257-extend-concat-to-support-array-concatenation).

  9. Extend concat to support array concatenation...

    An example use case would be to the concatenation of two parameter arrays, like ui-locations & service-locations. Concatenating these parameters would enable "copy"ing over the concatenated list of locations. You could stand up Microsoft.Web/serverFarms based on this concatenated list. This might, however depend on the creation of a new "distinct" function, so that you can iterate of a distinct list of locations.

  10. Build Azyre Resource Manager IDE Interface for IT Pros

    IT Pros don't Like JSON or Code , we like GUI . I would Love to See an IDE interface something like Visio or Orchestrator IDE , where users Can Drag and Drop Azure Objects into a Canvas setup Objects properties then Link these Objects together . The IDE will then either Generate the RM template or deploy the design to Azure .

  11. Provide Reference Implementations for Common Scenarios

    Provide reference implementations for common scenarios that could be used as part of larger systems. For example, create an "isolated" network, with a typical three tier architecture (Web Front-End, Web API Middle Tier and a SQL Server Database), show how to use Azure features, such as CDN, DNS, RBAC, KeyVault, Monitoring, Backups. Iterate on this by creating variations of the reference implementation, replacing SQL with DocumentDB, replacing technologies (.NET with NodeJS). Show how to implement disaster recovery (multiple zones).

    Showcase the ability to bootstrap this "environment" using ARM Templates and how to upgrade the application.

  12. Ability to secure a string inside a template using a template secureString() function

    Imagine a scenario where you build a complex object in the variables and/or outputs section and want that object returned with some members of type securestring.

    usage example:

    {
    "$schema": "http://schema.management.azure.com/schemas/2015-01-01/deploymentTemplate.json#",
    "contentVersion": "1.0.0.0",
    "parameters": {},
    "variables": {},
    "resources": [],
    "outputs": {
    "configuration": {
    "type": "object",
    "value": {
    "assetsLocation": "http://myassetslocation",
    "assetsSasToken": "[secureString('?someSasToken')]"
    }
    }
    }
    }

  13. Storage blob container_PowerShell command

    As we know with classic storage, we have option to create a Blob container from PowerShell using "New-AzurestorageContainter".

    But for ARM storage account, we don't have any such PowerShell command with "RM". Until now seems we can only create a Container from Portal.
    Can we have the same or some kind of command for creation of Blob container with ARM storage.

    It's seems needed for normal use. Thanks.

  14. It would be nice to have a "master" reset button

    As a noob - mistakes happen. It would be awesome to have a master reset switch, even with multiple "are you sure", "really sure", type questions that eventually would completely reset this instance to a pristine, initial state. Toss all storage, VMs, everything. Even ask the user at the beginning for a special pass phrase. Something.

  17. Public IPs (PIP) and Network Interface (NIC) Objects are not Always Cleaned Up When Deleting a VM

    While we were testing creating new VMs from images, we noticed that when we deleted the VMs through the GUI, the PIP and NIC objects were left behind. We had to go back manually to delete them.

  18. Allow to restric the capacity of type and numer of resources that can be created in a resource group

    We often come across scenarios where we need to give a small POC or a solution test drive for a customer where we need to allow a customer to be able to create maybe just 5 VMs, 1 storage a/c, 1 SQL DB . We wish we could create a resource group for that customer to define the cap on the type and the no. of Azure resources he/she maybe able to create in the delegated resource group

  19. Provide the ability to execute ARM templates authored using Visual Studio in an emulator in local machine

    Provide the ability to execute ARM templates authored using Visual Studio in an emulator in local machine.
    . This helps us to save time while authoring templates.
    . The emulator should have the ability to sync on the background to incur the updated schema and the latest ARM engine.

  20. Allow multiple address spaces when using ARM for virtual networks

    When deploying services in IaaS using the Service Management API we have created a 3 tier virtual network in line with our on premise deployments - 10.125. 1x.x 10.25.x.x 172.25.x.x. If you try to add an additional address space when creating a network in ARM in the portal, you get a message saying you can't change the address space, which means you are limited to a single address space. Not the end of the world, but it means we are tied to classic until this becomes available.
