  1. Allow assign Azure policies on all subscription under EA portal

    Now policies can be assigned on a subscription/resource group/resources level.
    But my customer want to assign policies once on all subscriptions under EA portal or at least on department level

    • Control which VM will be excluded in case of scale-in in a scale set

      We want to make a Oracle application auto-scale (scale-out,scale-in) using IaaS. So the concern with the application is, it supports Admin role enablement only in one VM in its cluster. So if we define a scale set and in case of scale-in the VM with Admin role enabled shuts down then that will be a problem for us. Thus can we have a feature to exclude some VM's from scale-in, so that such business scenarios can also be fulfilled by Azure.

      Thanks & Regards,

      Pratik

      • Recovery Site Services / Backups for Canadian Datacenters

        Well the Canadian servers are welcome, we are still waiting for the recovery services to become available prior to migrating approximately 25 servers across a few subscriptions our clients who have been waiting for Canadian availability.

        Any updates on when this is going to be happening? With two of the clients if it does not happen before the end of July they will be finding other solutions. (~5 instances for these 2 clients)

        Please advise!

        • Add Canada to Azure Backup regions

          Azure Backup is not available in Canada but needs to be as it is a critical component in any Azure solution.

          • Change "Max NICs per VM" to at least 2 for all VM sizes

            A customer of mine is evaluating Azure and is requesting that Microsoft increase the maximum number of NICs to 2 for the Azure VMs that currently have a maximum of 1 NIC (e.g. A0, A1, A2, A5, D1, D1v2, DS1, DS1v2, F1, F1s, etc.).

            The reason/justification is that even the smaller-scale VMs should allow for Production implementation of Management Zones with separation of management traffic from application traffic (and separation in Network Security Group rules).

            Note: Through a quick review of documentation from AWS, it looks like their maximum NICs per instance - or what they call "Maximum Elastic Network…

                  • Add French Canadian as an Azure Company Branding option

                    French Canadian is now a discrete language pack and language option in Windows 10 OOBE. Windows AutoPilot uses Azure Company Branding languages to determine what custom sign in page text to deliver to the user at the "Welcome to Contoso" Azure AD join page in OOBE. Yet Azure AD Company Branding is MISSING a French Canadian option. This is directly impacting AutoPilot which is displaying French Canadian custom sign in page text in English because of the missing language configuration. French Canadian has its own regional and grammatical differences from French. Windows 10 OOBE already handles the French Canadian differences,…

                    • Increase VSO free build minutes per month

                      Currently, we get 60 minutes for free, but they are easily consumed in our case because we have a gated check-in policy that allows check-ins only if the build is successful. So every time we check something in, we have to build the server.

                            • option to resize OS VHD

                              I would like to see a feature to shrink VHD from 127 GB default, i feel its not fair business practice for us not to choose or modify size

                              1st allocating 127 GB may be business decision but not allowing to shrink it is not a fair practice it more like money grab.,

                              downloading and uploading do this task is also not fair as we will be charged for download

                              • Azure Status Resolved Update

                                At the moment, the RSS feed doesn't post a "Resolved" message so when we receive information about an issue or an outage, it's effectively permanent as we never get an update about its resolution.
                                If the RSS feed posted a "Resolved" message about the issue or outage it posted earlier, Systems and managers could respond to this update with internal/external comms.

                                    I would never subscribe to Azure services, because I've been getting Azure emails for years with no unsubscribe and no way to unsubscribe --even by logging in to this account. You don't even let me contact you for support because I have no active subscriptions. Companies that pigeonhole potential customers into using only provided support methods and don't provide REAL customer service aren't worth having. You will NEVER earn my business -as a result. Please add the ability to unsubscribe from Azure emails or at least give me a way to delete my account so I never have to see…

                                    • Make Azure Data Catalog enterprise grade

                                      Currently the app uses ClickOnce for the installer - which is horrid - it installs the application to a random GUID folder in the user profile. It needs to be machine-based which can be automatically deployed - such as a MSI.

                                      It also doesn't work behind a proxy - which 99% of enterprises will have.

                                      Minor point - the start menu shortcut is under Microsoft Corp - Yammer is under Microsoft Corporation. Core applications are under Microsoft {Product name} - such as Office, SQL Server, Visual Studio, etc.

                                      • Applicant insight in UK

                                        Application insight is not currently available in the UK. Many corporate and government organisations in the UK only allow to use services hosted in UK data centres. This is a major issue for as we are unable to use application insight at its fullest as because of its availability in the UK, WE are restricted to only to log very limited information to it.

                                        Can this be looked into?

                                        • Provide Encryption for Azure SQL DB export

                                          Currently we are able to backup the Azure SQL DB using the export functionality. However it would be great if we could do an encrypted backup.
