  1. Allow hiding java samples in documentation

    would be great if there was a way to hide C# or Java sample-code in the documentation on docs.microsoft.com, depending on which one you are using.

  2. Choosing programming language for code blocks in Azure docs

    Seeing code blocks in both C# and Java is very confusing. Please create "choose language" option.

  3. Allow Azure Webapps to access SF Mesh networks

    A common setup is to have a bunch of microservices running in a mesh, but the public facing application running as an Azure Webapp (in our case Webapps for Containers) due to all the good stuff that comes for free like HTTPS termination, deployment slots and so on. It would be great if these webapps were allowed to "join" the isolated network of SF Mesh.

  4. Let's Encrypt certificates for Service Fabric

    Do we have a support to add the Let's Encrypt certificates to the Service Fabric cluster?

    I want to use Let's Encrypt certificates and automate the process of renewing them.

  5. These powershell commands still available?

    on the docs.microsoft.com, I'm still seeing this powershell cmdlet.

    Send-ServiceFabricApplicationHealthReport
    Get-ServiceFabricApplicationHealth

    Are these still available?

  6. Support "Open" Network Type on Standalone Service Fabric installation

    The option for deploying with "Open" network type provides the ability to host dockerized services that use RPC communication.
    For an application to use Distributed Transactions, MS DTC should be able to communicate with the participants. DTC communication is based on RCP and is two way. For this reason, each docker application instance should be assigned a specific IP address.

  7. Visual Studio for mac supports Service Fabric development

    Visual Studio for Mac is very interesting product. However it is not supporting Service Fabric development yet. Hope It will support soon as I refer to use VS for Mac instead of Eclipse because I love .Net Core too much.

    Thanks and Regards

  8. Make it easy to get code coverage data from my ServiceFabric local cluster tests

    MSTest has a pretty great code coverage feature. It works well for unit tests and it also works when the test launches the product through a command line (Process.Start). But, it doesn't work with local service fabric clusters.

    I'd like a way to run my local service fabric service under code coverage analysis.

  10. Make SERVICE FABRIC work!

    It would be nice if SERVICE FABRIC actually worked!

    I changed from Cloud-Services (web/worker roles) to ServiceFabric a few months ago, and hve not yet been able to get it to work on Azure.

    Please fix it Microsoft!!!! I am paying for this incredible nonsense which is just a pile of rubbish compared to CloudServices, which just works straight out-of-the-box.

    ServiceFabric is such a complicated MESS that it simply does not work:
    1) Cannot deploy anything to a Cluster
    2) Cannot see what the problem is clearly.
    3) The online explorer tool is utter garbage!
    4) The VM scale set…

  11. Desktop explorer app - keep track of recently used URLs and Certs

    ServiceFabric explorer desktop app doesn't keep track of the URLs & certs last used after WindowsUpdate automatically restarts my PC (sigh).

  13. Ability to view multiple clusters

    It would be more productive to be able to view multiple clusters in the same application; not opening multiple instances. i.e.: Have a tabbed interface

  15. Stop charging double for Windows instances compared to Linux instances

    As of 2018/08/08 Service Fabric Mesh pricing as

    Container Compute Duration $0.000006/vCPU-S +
    $0.000002/Memory GB-S

    Then there is "an additional software charge of $0.000006 per vCPU second for Windows instances". This is a massive 100% extra charge on top of the infrastructure charges themselves.

    I've seen 3rd party vendors charge extra for Windows instances since they have to license it from Microsoft but considering it's your own product, this excessive fee feed into the negative stereotype that windows servers should be avoided.

  16. Provide a nuget package for "FabricClient.dll"

    It should be possible to run service fabric code on clients without installing the whole SDK.

    I have a cluster certificate expired. I worked with tech support. Very difficult to fix. Your team should prepare such case.

  18. Data explorer for reliable collections in stateful services and actors

    Azure service fabric opens up altogether new ways for service designers to save data into reliable objects instead of necessarily using SQL Azure, Document DB or Table storage. The key limitation of using reliable objects is that the data is accessible only within the service / actor and developer must write code to expose reliable collections for viewing / managing. It would be great for the platform for provide means to browse / manage the data stored in stateful services just like it is possible for other persistent stores through OOTB tools (SSMS, Document DB document explorer, Storage Explorer) without…

  19. Make it possible to run services with Azure AD identities

    It would be nice if services could be run with Azure AD identities. Currently, in Azure, only local accounts are supported whereas running SF on-premise does have support for domain identities.

    Supporting this would enable scenario's like connecting to Azure AD protected Azure SQL instances.

  20. Allow singleton services to have multiple instances per node bypassing placement constraint

    Currently, if you try to span multiple instances of a singleton service that is greater than your cluster node count, you will face placement constraint warning and will have only the number of instances running with an warning in your cluster.
    The Orchestration process should ignore the Replica Exclusion Placement Constraint to allow multiple singleton services running at same node without workaround it by using partitions.
    Makes no sense to have this constraint, as the stateless we probably are not worried about losing data if the node goes down. It should have better handling for this in case your number…
