      • Allow connection to SFTP with user having different home folder than prohibited root folder

        We're trying to connect to an SFTP server, where the user is logged in and directed immediately to a subpath of the root. The root folder is restricted from access by the user. If we open the connection in filezilla, the connection immediately connects to the subdirectory path.

        Azure makes a connection to the SFTP, but fails when attempting to perform any actions within that server, as it first tries to hit the root folder.

        Azure should either adhere to the server telling the default directory, or allow configuration of a different default directory (probably more flexible).

        • RHEL Diagnostic Logs are missing important fields.

          Diagnostic logging to Table Storage is missing the application name and PID in the 'Msg' field. I'm using the Azure Storage API with C# to query and forward events to our SIEM but the messages aren't complete.

          Here is what rsyslog will log to disk:
          May 4 13:41:16 TestLinux123 sshd[12164]: Failed password for root from 1.2.3.4 port 15435 ssh2

          Rsyslog correctly logs the app and PID ("sshd[12164]"), but those details are strangely not being recorded in Table Storage. Without the App name and to a lesser extent the PID, our SIEM can't parse events properly. I could re-invent the wheel…

          • Add media assets from blob storage

            Azure Media Services uses this idea of assets. At the moment, the asset can be uploaded in the portal. So you select a file and then wait until it's uploaded, and YOU DO NOT want to close your browser. Why not give users to use other tools for managing storage like Storage Explorer, etc? Why browser only???

            • Implement XML tag indexing on Azure Search.

              I can see JSON content can be indexed. When will Azure search index XML files?

              • single invoice

                just like amazon aws it would be good to have single invoice for all subscriptions.

                its cumbersome for accounts department to handle multiple bills
                single monthly invoice
                subscription wise break-up
                resource wise break-up would be good

                moving from aws to azure itself a humongous learning curve
                now, multiple billing is another burden

                  • Sync notifications between browser windows

                    If we open two Azure consoles in two browser windows the notification for one session don't show in the other.

                    It would be good if the notifications were linked to the users account so that any outstanding notifications would be seen even if the browser was closed etc.

                    • Send me a notification when there is a better Azure deal available

                      It would be nice if I was notified if there was a better deal available than the one I had.

                      For example: I had a D11 v2 VM and was paying €181.96 per month for this. I later found out that there was an equivalent VM available (D11 v2 Promo) for just €150.58.

                      I would have saved money if I was notified of the better deal on the VM.

                      • Add Support for Secondary DNS

                        Given events of late concerning DNS outages and DDoS attacks, it would be advantageous if we could configure custom NS records in Azure DNS to use Secondary DNS.

                        At the same time, support for AXFR records should be added to allow outbound zone transfers to be configured so that the Secondary DNS zone can be kept in sync automatically.

                        This would then allow us to point to a Secondary DNS service like BuddyNS or DNSMadyEasy.

                              • 1 TB disk limit is not feasible for any SQL database server. When will fix this 2 years issue in Azure?

                                1) Most system don't use up to 1TB storage except the physical disk size is bigger in size for expansion. Azure should allow replication of storage utilizing less than 1 TB even though the disk is bigger than 1 TB

                                        • [REQUEST] Please use one email address as the source address for Microsoft Azure notification emails.

                                          Now, we get various notification emails from Microsoft. Some of them are very important for our and our customer's business. However, it's not easy for us to find that kind of emails since Microsoft use various email address as source addresses . So that customers don't miss the notification email, please use one email address as the source address.
