    • Metrics

      Some screens in the portal don't have direct URL access.

      For example:
      Metrics per Instance (App Service plan)
      Which can now only be accessed via:
      - App Service
      - Diagnose and solve problems
      - Metrics per Instance (App Service Plan)

      A direct URL accesses means I can bookmark it, as I want to maintain a "toolbelt" bookmarks folder for DevOps aspects of my app.

      Can you please provide direct URL for these resources?

        • Add Arduino libraries for ESP32 for connection to Azure IoT

          I can not find Arduino libraries to connect with the Azure IoT platform, with the ESP32. Normally there are Arduino libraries for ESP8266, for ESP32 there is little information. Thank you.

                • total and regional and vCPU

                  The total regional vCPUs should be increased similar way as for each individual SKUs via the Usage + quotas page.
                  As total regional VCPUs is not the sum of each individual quotas, its increase is a separate request.

                  • private DNS Zone for backend service

                    Hi,

                    We are deploying backend on some VMs and those are behind internal load balancer.
                    How should I configure internal DNS for this load balancer so that frontend service vms or apps will use it for communication?

                    • Azure AD Application Manifest - Resource type declarations

                      Azure AD application manifests offers a fantastic mechanism for ISV"s/Multitenant SaaS providers to provide a transparent declaration of roles. Most customer's when they hear of the capabilities of the Application manifest like this transparency and like this feature.

                      However, it falls short as the role declarations do not permit for Resource based declarations by the consumers of the services.
                      A role could define the entity types for the resource along with the data type - A role could be defined with specific accesses to resources and assigned to user's - all inside Azure AD.

                      This is a feature which would…

                      • Allow NSG for VPN Gateway Subnet

                        We want to connect several devices with our Azure VNET via the VPN Gateway. Therefore the VPN Gateway is configured for P2S connections.

                        We want to restrict the devices so that they can only communicate with certain other devices.

                        To implement this functionality we need to assign the VPN Gateway subnet a NSG. Furthermore this NSG should be dynamic, because the IPs provided by the VPN Gateway to its clients clould not be predetermined.

                        Currently NSGs are not supported for VPN Gateway subnets as well as there is no way to control IP allocation for connecting devices.

                        • Automate domain replacement in Azure Storage Explorer link generator

                          Azure Storage Explorer comes with a default URL generator for all files - http(s)://<storage account>.blob.core.windows.net/<container>/<file name>.

                          The application also allows you to bind a custom URL to the service that takes the place of the "<storage account>.blob.core.windows.net/" section of the URL, making it http(s)://<custom domain>/<container>/<file name>.

                          It would be super helpful to be able to be able to update the settings to indicate a custom domain is being used so that the "Copy URL" function replaced the root domain for you.

                          Currently the advice received from MS is to manually replace the indicated URL segment manually, every time Storage Explorer…

                          • Make the new Fv2-Series instance types available in Australia

                            The new Fv2 compute-optimised instance types are great, but they aren't available in Australia, and we have clients that require their data to not leave the country. This means we have to use Google or AWS instances when we need >16 CPUs for these customers.

                            • Provide Reverse DNS (PTR records) for all Public IP Addresses

                              Azure has thousands of public IP addresses which do not have PTR records. Consider adding a PTR record for all IP addresses Microsoft owns, whether or not it is allocated to a customer or service. When naming the PTR domain, consider following a naming convention that makes it easy to determine the region/datacenter it has been allocated to (e.g. US West vs US East vs Singapore), to which services it's been allocated (Yammer, SharePoint, Key Vault, Monitoring, SQL Server, OMS, HDI). This would allow firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and others to determine that an IP address belongs to…

                                • Highlight Application Gateway WAF rules in different risk levels

                                  IMHO, Azure should provide some guidelines on WAF rule configurations.
                                  At least highlight the most important rules which we must turn on, so we can feel a bit safe when we have to turn off some non-important rules.
                                  For example:
                                  Rule 1,2,3 -- High risk; must turn on; when violated, do #a/b/c on your app to get compliant;
                                  Ruel 4,5,6 – Medium risk; recommend to turn on, do #e/f/g app to get compliant;
                                  Rule 7,8,9 – low risk; can be turned off.

                                  P.S. It is kind of heavy for us to study all the rules https://github.com/SpiderLabs/owasp-modsecurity-crs/tree/v3.0/master/rules;

                                  • Demasiadas ventas, firewall algo dificil de entender

                                    autotranslate.

                                    I did not find where to send feedback privately, I hope they can forward it to where it belongs.

                                    The azure service was the last one I tried, before it was amazon, google and digital ocean in terms of service instances in the cloud.

                                    Literally, it was the most difficult to configure, many windows, many options, I'm using an old PC if, but anyway on a larger screen I would have felt uncomfortable anyway with the windows style.

                                    With choosing the location it was already an odyssey, they should put the ones that are allowed in the free option…

                                    • Additional Azure Monitor metric - RAM/Memory resource

                                      Considering there are various CPU, Network and Disk metrics available, could we also have "RAM/Memory % utilization" please?

                                      • free account

                                        I've already a account at azure, but not free. I using it to learn more about azure. Can I change this account into a free acount?

                                        Normal I buy SQL Server Developer edition for about 75 euros and expiment with it, but now I paid hundreds euros for Azure.

                                        • A DNS forwarding option from the classic Xyz.cloudapp.net to the new DNS

                                          Hi,
                                          Classic machines had the Xyz.cloudapp.net
                                          new machines ( Resource manager) has a new DNS address.

                                          we need a way to forward the old DNS address to the new one, those addresses has been published in many places
