  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. Support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI

    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.

  3. Support to TripleDES and DUKPT on KeyVault

    In Payment Industry, cryptographic keys that are used to encrypt PIN from credit/debit cards are TripleDES (sometimes with DUKPT) based. Currently, KeyVault only support RSA keys.

    Please add support to it.

  5. SLES 15 support for ASR

    My customer hopes that SLES 15 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15) will be supported for Azure Site Recovery in the near future. I'd like you to consider that as soon as possible.

  7. office 365 group expiration

    Within the Office 365 Group Expiration setup there should be a way to set it such that all groups *except* specific ones are subject to the expiration setting. As it stands now it's the other way around; all groups or only the selected ones. In an environment where users are permitted to created their own groups (something I was told even Microsoft allows) you really need the expiration feature enabled by default. But there are certainly use cases where as an admin you will want specific groups exempted from this setting.

  8. Feature Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

    Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

    In this new feature (ex : Azure IP Object management) user can create IP Object (List of Ips or Subnet) this object can be added in any Azure Resources who have a Firewall (Azure SQL, Storage Account, WebApp,...)

    For Exemple:
    You create an Object "Company Public IPs" and you add in this object All your company Public IP.
    In your Azure resources Firewall (WebApp, AzureDB, NSG,...) you specify this Object to allowing access.

    If tomorrow you need to add a new public IP you just need to add this new public IP…

  9. Allow running headless Chrome (or other browser) in Function apps or Web apps

    Basically it's this:
    https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/gcp/introducing-headless-chrome-support-in-cloud-functions-and-app-engine

    Now obviously Google has a bit of an advantage here what with Chrome being their own tech but there are so many blogs out there with people talking about complicated Docker solutions just to run headless Chrome in the cloud.

    It would be great if we could get a solution where we could run Puppeteer in much the same way, or allow web apps to run Chrome without having to be inside Docker and we could manage a pool of Chromes without having to manage Docker as well.

  10. Monitor Application Gateway Load

    Provide a way to monitor Application Gateway CPU/Memory in order to track load. It's hard to know only based on current access/http errors when the WAF is under heavy preasure and we need to scale it up.

  11. Azure Active Directory B2C: Don't charge for token refresh

    Azure AD B2C is great and the pricing too, except for the fact, that token refreshs carried out by the application (as opposed to being carried out by the user) are charged separately. An application that keeps a logical connection to the server while in the background, might carry out quite many token refreshs over time. A regular frequency of one refresh per hour leads to ~700 refreshs per month. Assuming 1.000.000 users, this sums up to ~500.000$/month. This exceeds the capacity of start-ups like ours by a factor of 1000 (!). Although AD B2C would be the perfect fit…

  12. Recovery Service Vault, Backup storage Replication in ARM

    Currently there is no way to sepcify which storage replication is wanted when you create a Recovery Services Vault via ARM templates.

    The default when spinning up a vault is GRS, and the only way to change it is to log into the portal and choose LRS before any backups have been applied.

    The fact that the type of storage replication cannot be changed after a backup has been set does not help the situation.

    This makes automating infrastrucutre builds painful as I have to login and change the setting in the portal before i am able to continue adding…

  13. Better pricing structure for API Management

    We currently use 4 instances of APIM for duplicating our environments (Dev/UAT/Pre Prod and Production)

    We went with APIM as a solution for fronting some azure services and some internal services. Due to the VPN access only being available on Premium we are paying for over 32 Millions calls a day when we will barely generate a 1 Million. So we have 4 Premium APIM instances costing us £6000 a month purely for the VPN access. Forcing us to pay for a level we do not require just for a feature of the environment, it would be better if the…

  14. 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.

    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

  19. 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.

  20. Harmonize the offer types (CSP/Open/EA/PAYG)

    CSP is a great purchasing model for small and medium businesses, but has some serious problems.

    1) Migrating between CSP and any other offer is a very laboursome and expensive project (not to mention that many resources cannot be migrated). This can cause Vendor lock-in and some other major risks for customers using CSP. Currently even PAYG to CSP is not easy.

    2) CSP customers are unequal to other Azure users despite the fact that they pay the same or sometimes even more, because they do not have the same services available to them.

    3) CSP resellers have to put…
