  1. 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.

  2. Use only a specific RDGW when using WVD

    For these reasons, we want to pin the [rdgateway-r0.wvd.microsoft.com] endpoint to a specific server.

    ・ Compliance
    ・ Charges are incurred for accessing different regions

    Although it is recognized that the operation of Traffic Manager is selected from a plurality of endpoints, it is desirable that it can be fixed by parameters or the like.

  3. Allow Cognitive Services(Authoring resources) to pricing tier to be paid instead of free.

    You are not currently allowed to create more than 10 cognitive resources per region per subscription due to the fact that they must be free. With a lot of bot builders in a subscription, this means we cannot restrict access effectively. If we changed this to S0, this would give the ability to create more authoring resources.

    In a large enterprise with Strict subscription rules, we currently don't have the ability to create the necessary authoring resources to meet our needs.

  5. Make DomainDNSName,NetbiosName & Samaccountname attributes avaialble to public to use AAD Join without AAD Connect

    We use okta for synchronizing accounts to Azure AD.

    We plan to use AAD Join for our windows10 devices, it works well with AAD Connect(As AAD Connect synchronizes attributes DomainDNSName, NetBIOS name & Onpremisesamaccoutnanme)

    Okta could not update these attributes, I want to find a way to update the attributes(by using PowerShell or GraphAPI?).

    And also would like to know if there is any possibility to sync MSDS-Keycredentiallink attribute to on-premise without using AAD Connect so that I can use windows hello.

  6. Moving IBM Mainframes to Azure

    we need an easy way to lift and Mainframes/ AS400 to lift and to Azure. instead of replatforming if Microsoft can build a layer which AS 400 or Mainframe apps can run on, can help drive consumption of Azure. Hopefully Microsoft can do it before AWS

  7. Enable Soft Delete in Azure Data Lake Gen2

    You can turn on the Soft Delete option in Blob Storage, but not when it's got the ADLS Gen2 box checked. Please make this available in the ADLS Gen2 storage accounts. We just had an accidental deletion of a top-level folder in the container and it couldn't be restored by the MS engineers even with the geo-replication going.

  8. Allow customization for SSPR Pages

    Allow for organizations to customize the SSPR pages...particularly verification page and the page where users actually reset their passwords (both for sync'd and cloud only accounts)...for example, being able to post more details on the Get Back Into Account Page...or, providing users with the company password policy, so they do not run the risk of not making it long or complex enough multiple times and getting locked out

  9. Allow custom code references in Application Insights multi-step webtests

    Application Insights on Azure lets me upload a .webtest file to monitor application availability. My application is a REST/JSON service, and so my .webtest references a custom ExtractJSONRule derived from the ExtractionRule base class to pick out and check data from the JSON response. I can upload the .webtest file OK, but of course, without the custom C# code for the ExtractJSONRule, it always fails.

    Please provide a mechanism to allow .webtest files which reference one or more custom .cs files for custom ExtractionRule and ValidationRule classes.

  10. Application gateway should have the capability to store certificate in Azure Key Vault

    Currently Application gateway does not store certificate in Azure Key Vault. We believe that Application gateway should have the capability to do that. This will give customer more control over their certificate than saving it in Microsofts encrypted storage.

  11. Azure SQL PiTR - Option to disable or set to 1 day retention

    We currently have an SQL managed database, which we use for development purposes.

    We are developing how our data ingest will work, currently we drop the tables every day, and re-load all the data. As of the 31-AUG we started getting charged for PiTR which we didn't know about, until PiTR started costing us upwards of $120 per day.

    What I found out is after the initial backup (free) any changes were replicated to 6 regions (GRS storage) and set to 35 days retention period. These are backups we don't want or need, as data is ingested from the Datalake.…

  12. Azure's status board availability

    The Microsoft Azure status board should live outside Azure's ecosystem just because when there is a problem with some Azure´s service, the Microsoft Azure status page may not be available for the same issue.

  13. Allow Password Policies to be set at the Group Level

    Allow Password Policies to be set at the Group Level instead of only at the domain level.

    Example: Our default password expiration is 90 days, but we have a group that requires their passwords to be reset every 60 days.

    This is not currently possible.

  15. EA Portal - Enable Conditional Based Access

    We have enabled Conditional Based Access on the "Microsoft Azure Management" application in Azure AD. We are using this to enforce Multi-Factor Authentication on all logins to the Azure Portal.

    This applies to the new & classic azure portals, but not the EA portal.

    We should also be able to protect the EA Portal (https://ea.azure.com) with MFA.

    Can this either be included in the "Microsoft Azure Management" application defined in Azure AD? Or alternatively another Cloud App should be defined in Azure AD for the EA Portal.

  16. File Sync with Service endpoint/FIrewall enabled Azure file Storage

    Currently Azure File sync is not able to sync with a file storage which activates firewall function (and Service endpoint).

    Enterprise data often contains secret data. Therefore I need that file sync can be used with file storage which activates firewall function.

  17. For Virtual machines, allow configurable outbound TCP timeout.

    Currently you can only configure the inbound tcp timout. The default outbound timeout for TCP connections is 4 minutes and is non configurable/by design. It's important that users have the ability to change this, perhaps up to a value of 30 which is similar to the inbound properties.

  18. Azure Sql Import Bacpac slow

    We are testing a production database migration to Azure SQL. The database is 50GB and even on the S3 tier we are going on 30 hours still and the import isn't complete (pegged at 100% DTU). At this point I couldn't even tell you when this will finish. I understand I could have chosen the highest premium tier to import this and it might have been quicker, however I only want to test this database and right now I've lost 3-4 days on this (importing at S0, S1 tiers). My suggestion is to allow an option when going through the…

  19. Add an information in the portal about object count in AzureAD | Or warn before limit is reached

    Please add a information to the Portal, how many objects are in AzureAD.
    This is critical because sync stops when the limit (Standard is 300 000 at the moment) is reached.
    To have a Information about actual object count in Azure AD would easily help to avoid issues with sync.
    Microsoft sends a Mail when threshold is reached, please add also a feature to send a warning in advance, e.g. when 80% of 300 000 is reached, so a quota raise can be done before there is an outage.
    Further, it is unclear how customers can count object count on…

  20. Make Azure available in Haiti

    Microsoft Azure should be available for developers and businesses in Haiti. This country lack of a power supply system you can rely on for business, so the cloud is our best options. Please consider adding Haiti in the list of supported countries while signing up for Microsoft Azure.
