  1. Invoice feedback when credits are requested

    We had a situation where we requested and were granted Azure credits. We were later told that because of going through this process, the current billing month was not transacted, and the full amount was delayed until the next billing month, meaning we had a bill for 2 full months, minus the credits.

    This was not ideal, and we thought there was a problem with our account not being charged. Turns out this was a known thing from the billing engineering team, but there was no obvious way for us to know this was happening.

    Lots of time wasted on…

    • Manual Pay Option

      I know that in payment options page, you stated that you do not accept virtual credit cards but, I always use virtual credit card. It would be useful if there is manual payment option.

      • ServiceBus dedicated capacity at a lower cost

        The jump from shared to dedicated capacity is about $680.month -- this more than the monthly cost of my redundant AppService + ElasticPools combined.

        Perhaps a tier between Standard/Premium that offers dedicated capacity, but with a ops/month cost.

        This wouldn't be an issue, if it weren't for noisy neighbors and the only retry mechanism in the official SB client is a blocking call (thus halting any other work on that thread)

        • display metrics for app service consumption plans

          It would be useful to view metrics for Consumption App Services Hosting Plan items. This would allow us to make a business case for moving to an App Service Hosting Plan

          • TFS (Team Foundation Service) as Source Control for Automation Accounts

            • To have the possibility to set radius timeout on the VPN gateway point to site confguration

              When using the new radius authentication feature on Azure VPN Gateway it would be nice to be able to control the timeout to the radius server. This would make the usage of Azure MFA for VPN authentication possible. (IT works now if users are very fast at answering the phone)

              • Add "Subscription" tag in the NSG rules

                Story:
                As a DevOps engineer
                I want to easily block network access within a subscription with a single NSG rule (for specific resources using a that rule)
                So that I don't have to manage multiple NSG rules.

                Background:
                We would like to ring-fence our subscriptions, so that one (e.g. Production) cannot "talk" to another one (e.g. Non-production).

                We can currently achieve it with multiple NSG rules, where we allow/block IP ranges or vnets.

                It would be much easier to manage this for our purpose if we could add a "subscription" tag in the NSG rules and effectively only allow traffic…

                • Assign Admin roles to synced AD Groups

                  I am working with a customer who has a number of security requirements . they are looking at managing the office 365 admin access based on the users AD Group membership. What would be really useful is the ability to assign Office 365 Admin roles to a group as opposed to a user explicitly.
                  This is all for their internal auditing purposes and processes. Users request access to a specific services through their service desk and through their internal processes a request is raised, then approved by a manager and the user is then added in to the relevant AD…

                  • Change some config on load balancer it takes more than 3 minutes to take effect on it after i saw the succeed returned result on portal.

                    This is a customer's comment:
                    When changing some config on load balancer it takes more than 3 minutes to take effect on it after i saw the succeed returned result on portal.So the message shows on the portal is not real-time status of the config effecting.

                          "Type a query predicate (e.g., {´a´:´foo´}), or choose one from the drop down list, or leave empty to query all documents." because it is too similar to the white background. Make it slightly more readable please.

                              • Improve activation of Azure In Open credits

                                After receiving an Azure in Open license number and authorization code, it takes several hours before the license can be activated in the Microsoft Volume Licensing Center. After this step, you have to wait again before the product code can be activated in Azure. This whole process can take up to 48 hours, which seems absurd for processing digital transactions.

                                  • Azure Functions Syntax

                                    Azure Functions supports scheduling with "Chron" syntax. Except Chron syntax supports "L" for Last day of the month - but it causes an error with Functions.

                                    It would be nice if the syntax were implemented completely. It's probably a small job.

                                      • creatin a keyvault secret and using it in the same template

                                        Give a different method then the securestring parameter to point to a new secret. I would like to be able to deploy a keyvault, a new secret and then to reuse the created secret and keyvault in my next resource deployment. Currently this is not possible. It would have to be done via Pshell or separate ARM templates.

                                        Regards,

                                        Reinout Pennings

                                        • Remove restrictions when moving app services to a new resource group or app service plan

                                          Right now there are lots of limitations with app services when you want to move them to a new resource group or when you want to use a new app service plan (e.g. it's not possible to do it when SSL certificates are used).

                                          These operations must work seamlessly in a cloud scenario.
