  1. Allow Fixed Scaling with the new Metrics Charts (in preview)

    Currently with a new Metric Chart (preview) you are dynamically setting the scaling of the chart. We need the ability to set the scale of the chart from 0 to 100% all the time. Look at the attached file. Here are two charts side by side. The scaling is completely different so it makes comparing values between the two charts impossible.

    • maintenance mode oms

      Please add an option to place servers in 'maintenance mode' for OMS. This would eliminate the need to create separate alerts for individual/grouped VMs.

      • Fetch Azure offer details to implement pricing calculator

        As a Tier 2 CSP Microsoft partner we want to implement Azure pricing calculator on our site to let our resellers calculate offers for their end customers.

        You offer Azure Rate Card which is very basic and limited. It doesn't provide any other options to calculate any resources based on different type, pricing tier, licence type, instance sizes and many other options.

        Some API should be provided to fetch detailed offers, meters and options to them, along with pricing, or there should be option to somehow embed pricing calculator on site with possibility to apply our own pricing.

        • Hypervisor and Virtual Machine (VM) Status Check Metrics similar to what is provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS)

          We also use Amazon Web Services and looking for metrics in Azure similar to the status checks which you can find here.
          http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/monitoring-system-instance-status-check.html

          As these allow us to monitor for problems such as the following and deal with them using automated runbooks or scale out our hardware :-

          System
          - Loss of network connectivity
          - Loss of system power
          - Software issues on the physical host
          - Hardware issues on the physical host that impact network reachability

          Instance
          - Failed system status checks
          - Incorrect networking or startup configuration
          - Exhausted memory
          - Corrupted file system
          - Incompatible kernel

            • Configure point-to-site VPN from Function to VNet

              Functions are great. VNets are great. Point-to-site VPN is great. It would be even greater, if you could configure a function app to talk securely with a VNet through point-to-site VPN. Just as you can with a web app.

              • Fix web app and web app plan move

                The number of prerequisites and limitations in moving web app, app service plans and resource groups are staggering. I didn't want to delete and start again because these are production services with a large number of manual configurations (e.g. forced to use LetsEncrypt web job because you don't have it natively, but that's a separate issue!). Now I'm having to delete these and start again, standing up the new sites side-by-side and cutting over using DNS - what is the point of having these functionalities built in if they're not usable?

                • New tier between shared and basic

                  I think there should be a tier between shared and basic. The estimated 5x price increase from moving to basic seems pretty high for sites that have outgrown shared. Especially for sites with limited revenue like tech blogs.

                  I am thinking the new tier could be available to small businesses or individuals.

                  • Non-consumption marketplace services to show within the EA marketplace charges usage report

                    The request is for non-consumption marketplace services to show within marketplace charges usage report.

                    As some of the marketplace purchases are licensed based, there isn’t a sub ID that is shown anywhere on the EA portal as to which sub they are affiliated with.

                    Other consumption based marketplace charges can be seen with a sub ID if the customer goes to EA > Reports > Download Usage > Monthly Report Download > Marketplace Charges.

                    Please add license based marketplace services to the marketplace reports with the subscription IDs.

                    • Allow paths in Application Gateway rules to be defined as regular expression

                      Currently, Application Gateway rules support only path matches with a wildcard at the end of the string.

                      For us it means to rework our routing strategy as the first part of our route is dynamic /<domain>/<controller> (eg. /sales/process). The controllers are shared among domains. Domains can be dynamically created, what disallow us to directly use the current feature to separate only 'process' controller to standalone backend pool.

                      We would prefer to be able to define something like '/[a-z]]+/process.*' as a matching criterion.

                        • feature parity for azure SDK in other languages like python and java

                          in order for azure to compete with aws and attract more customers, support for languages outside of microsoft stack is very important. For example, a ton of companies uses java and python. Azure has a great features, but the SDKs for these languages are severely lacking compared to the .net one. For example, it is not possible to use python to manage hdinsight and submit map/reduce jobs written in python to the clusters. why you want this features? you can develop a python script and do "test-job.py --run" and this command will spin up a hdinsight cluster, run the job,…

                              The list of applications under "Azure AD B2C Settings \ Settings \ Applications" and also on "Azure Active Directory \ App Registrations" seems to be in random order and it is not possible to order the list, it would be great if the list was possible to order, just like the list in "Enterprise Administrations" for example.

                                • Add support to Azure AD B2C for the on-behalf-of flow.

                                  In order for a web API to call another downstream web API as the user, Azure AD B2C needs to support the OAuth on-behalf-of flow.

                                  According to the following reference, this isn't supported in B2C: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-b2c/active-directory-b2c-apps#web-api-chains-on-behalf-of-flow

                                  I also cannot find this feature on the Azure Roadmap.

                                  • Azure MFA Server Add AD user logins for their domain account

                                    Why wasn't user domain logins one of the first things added to Azure MFA Server? That makes the most sense. I mean seriously. I understand application 2FA but user login without 2FA is an even higher security risk.

                                      This was declined in 2014 for some reason, but Azure would improve more if each user can vote more than 3.3 times.

                                      • Allow different payment methods for different subscriptions owned by one account

                                        I manage services for several different companies. I need to be able to set up subscriptions for each company within my account and pay for each subscription using a different payment method. Currently the subscription UI allows you to enter payment methods for each subscription, but when you do this it changes the payment method for ALL subscriptions owned by the same account (the payment method must be tied to the owner, not the subscription). Not sure why you'd put the payment method on the subscription UI in the first place if this isn't the case, but setting up different…

                                        • Create an application or Tool for Migrating users from Azure AD to Local AD

                                          There should be an option that allow us to import users from Azure with all their attributes and write them back in a local environment. I can bet their have been businesses that for some reason, lost their Local environment (a malware attack), and would like to re-create the environment using what Azure Stored for them
