  1. allow setting spending limit on any account type

    I cannot afford to have a runaway process or a mistake in the Azure portal to generate a huge bill for me.

    Many of the special offers that give Azure credits come with a spending limit of $0.00 such that when your credit is used up, your account is temporarily disabled until your credits are refreshed.

    However, you can only remove the spending limit. You cannot change it to a higher level.

    Also, Pay as you Go accounts cannot have a spending limit either.

    It would be extremely useful to be able to set a spending limit on Pay as…

    • Google App Engine is the best in terms of free tier for developers. I am sure Microsoft can afford it but they don't. That is too bad.

      Google App Engine is the best in terms of free tier for developers. I am sure Microsoft can afford it but they don't. That is too bad. They will likely lose new developers to google.

      • add "Resource Group" and "Tags" to CSP reconcilation

        Add "Resource Group" and "Tags" columns to CSP usage based reconciliation file to help CSP partner divide bill to customer by department basis. At the moment only way is to do with different subscriptions and this causes management + admin overhead

        • Allow provisioned VM pricing to be altered to add software licensing without reprovisioning

          As an Azure VM user/administrator, I would like to be able to take an existing VM priced at one rate, and "upgrade" the pricing to include licensing for products installed after provisioning. I would like this to provide flexibility (e.g., if I want to install SQL Server on a Windows priced VM, without losing install/configuration work already undertaken on that VM and without independently licensing SQL; or if I want to add BizTalk to a Win/SQL-priced VM). I would also like this to allow simplified compliance (e.g., a Windows-priced VM is found to have SQL Server installed after provisioning), to…

          • Application Insights in Australia

            Please add application insights in the Australian region. Due to privacy laws we cannot export any data outside Australia and thus the Application Insights are not allowed to leave Australia.

            It would be great if those could be added!

              • Increase the ARM default Core Quota per region

                [ENG] Please increase the default limit for VMs/Cores in Azure Resource Manager.

                The current ARM default Core/VM limit per region for an Azure in Open and even some Pay-As-You-Go subscriptions is only 10-20. This is not enough at all to deploy a few VMs, and it prevents customers from expanding their service towards rapid business growth and urgent requirement. More flexibility and convenience should be provided as default.

                [Japanese] Azure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値引き上げ依頼

                Azure in Open や従量課金プランのサブスクリプションについて、現在のAzure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値は、10 から 20 程度です。
                この既定上限値では、十分な仮想マシンを作成することができず、お客様の大切なビジネスの急成長や必要性に対応することができません。
                既定上限値が緩和され、柔軟に便利に利用できるよう改善よろしくお願いいたします。

                • Recovery Services Azure to Azure between different regions

                  Hello ! At this moment we can fail over in "Azure to Azure" model only between region's locations. For example if source resource group is located in West Europe we cannot use USA as a target location. Six months ago or more there was a disaster fail of a whole region - unfortunately, I don't remember what was it. However, you will find this event in Azure event logs on the portal. I kindly ask Azure backend team - would you be so kind modify "Azure to Azure" mode and include different regions for target and resource groups please ?…

                  • ip restrict access to visual studio online

                    Our company houses our source code in Visual Studio Online. Currently a developer with an account can log in from home and download our entire code base which is basically our intellectual property - not good if they are about to resign and go to a competitor.
                    My suggestion is to allow IP restrictions on downloading code/workspaces. The rest of the site should be accessible from any IP, but users would be forced to VPN into the office to access the source code.

                      • Change geographical region for a given resource

                        A while back, you did not have a data centre in the UK, so I deployed all my resources to the North Europe region as that was the nearest. Now you do have a UK region, but all my resources are in the North Europe data centre. To migrate everything closer to home, is a real pain in the back side at the moment. Please provide an easy way to migrate across data centres difference resources such as Web Apps, Databases, Storage containers, etc.

                              Hi,
                              It would be great if you could answer the following questions:
                              1) Please show me where on the azure web site that it states that cloud services are auto deleted immediately if a subscription is disabled for any reason.
                              2) Please let me know if you also delete cloud services automatically without warning “by design” if a credit card expires or fails dues to funds shortage or the like?
                              3) Why do you want to seriously annoy your customers by designing your system like this????? That is a ridiculous…

                                Being a developer in Iran which I believe is one of the biggest consumer of Microsoft products like Windows and Windows Phone and also one of the cheapest out sourcing centers for other countries like Australia and European countries it would be great to be able to register with Azure and use its services like Web Apps, Application Insights, Mobile Services,... for personal use or for out sourced projects.

                                  Please support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI. Currently we have to make incredibly manual slicers for it, or else download the data via powershell, programmatic split the Tags into individual fields, and then reupload the data to be analyzed separately, instead of being able to do this straight out of BI.

                                  • ensure all documents that have AZ CLI examples also have PowerShell Examples

                                    There are many pages of documents that have only AZ CLI examples for them. For a PowerShell user this is not exactly helpful and reduces the capability of IT Pro's & Dev's to get to grips with these newer offerings

                                    Therefore please make it a requirement to have PowerShell Examples listed next to any AZ CLI examples so that those that are comfortable with PowerShell

                                    I have raised a GitHub Issue to have this tracked as well https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/13162#issuecomment-411907216

                                    • Hibernate/pause a resource group or subscription

                                      After talking to one of your Senior Support Engineers, they suggested I made a feature request for this.

                                      I'd like to be able to pause, hibernate or otherwise stop a resource group or subscription so that it incurs minimal costs when not in use. I'm suggesting resource group or subscription as one may be easier to implement than the other. Ideally this would be done through ARM but I’d settle for doing it via PowerShell if needed.

                                      I appreciate that VMs can be deallocated but we found that a customer's solution was still using approximately £200 a month due to…

                                      • [REQUEST] Please implement NTP Servers inside the Azure Data centers.

                                        For security reasons, we can't use NTP servers such as ”time.windows.com” through the internet. Please implement NTP Servers inside the Azure Data centers.

                                        • Improvement of EA portal

                                          Currently once the administrator sets "AO view charges" Enabled, every Account Owner come to be able to view the all charges of every subsections.
                                          We demand the improvement about the authority setting so that the Account Owners can see their own subscription's information only.
