  1. 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…

    • 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

      • [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.

        • Send SUPPORT invoices via email

          Glad to see the ability to send invoices via email has been implemented.

          However, it's still NOT possible to opt-in for SUPPORT invoices via email. This minimizes the usefulness of invoices via email if I still need to go to the billing portal to access by support invoice.

          Please implement the ability send support invoices via email. Thank you.

              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.

              • Azure Policy - Support for RegEx in Match Conditions

                Right now, the "Match" and "notMatch" conditions only support # for digit placeholders and ? for letters. This is okay, but it would be much more useful to support regex expressions. This would needed for define complex naming policies and tagging standards.

                • 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…

                  • Azure Revered Instances - Applying reservation to single or multiple VMs

                    Azure Revered Instances - Applying reservation to single or multiple VMs.

                    Looks like someone in Azure product team really missed ball on this. Basic things like selecting a VM to apply reservation is not even properly setup or documented. This shows poor work effort provided by the group worked on it.

                      The limit of tag count for a resource is 15, which is too small.
                      Is it possible to increase the value?

                      • Available Disk Space monitoring and alerts are not sufficient

                        The current available tools for visualizing and alerting on available Disk Space for Azure Virtual Machines should be expanded. In the Dashboards module, there is no Live Tile that would allow you to see a Virtual Machine's disks and available space. You can get some data through custom queries, but these queries are manual-refresh only and are not truly suited to a live Dashboard environment.

                        Similarly, there is no way to create an Alert for low disk space in the current Alerts module. In Alerts (Classic) there was a % Free Disk Space - this is not sufficient because it…

                        • Whitelist all Microsoft services in Storage account Firewall

                          Whitelist all Microsoft services including Azure Data Factory when the "Firewall and Virtual Network" option is enabled on Storage account and "Allow trusted Microsoft services to access this storage account" option is selected.

                          Similar option is already available on Azure Data Lake store, where we can access Data Lake from Data Factory pipelines after the firewall option is enabled.

                          • azure zones dns-forwarder

                            Please extend DNS zones solution to add forwarding & client features to implement the following in PaaS instead of with VMs:
                            https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates/tree/master/301-dns-forwarder

                            Use case: use azure dns to forward dns queries to 168.63.129.16 & between subnets. Enterprise DNS would forward to Azure DNS. VNET has Azure-provided name resolution (*.internal.cloudapp.net). In this way Enterprise DNS could dynamically learn of a PaaS offering on VNET.

                                One Microsoft Cloud Client
                                Please provide one client for azure (or maybe also office365) with the possibility to expand this client with features.

                                Actually we have to install many small Clients for intunes, several for OMS and so on.

                                Maybe it could be one intunes managed client-Software and if there are for example on one machine OMS-features needed, then we can just choose which Feature on which client and the client downloads and installs everything. Same for AIP, Dynamics Plugins and so on.

                                Thanks, Martin

                                      • assign Security Group to Authentication Method

                                        Add the option to assign a security group to specific authentication methods.
                                        i.e, Security Group "Azure Security Question" can be assigned to the Security Question authentication method. So that only objects in the group are given the Security Question method.

                                        • Allow firewall rules on Azure SQL DB to be removed via ARM templates

                                          Currently it seems that because the firewall rules for an Azure SQL DB are just proxy resources in an ARM template that you can not remove them via this mechanism. If you remove them from the ARM template, they are not removed from the Azure SQL DB resource. This means that it is not possible to properly source control the configuration as the source controlled configuration can differ from reality. I think it is vital to allow people to properly manage the Azure SQL DB as code that you work allow the rules to be removed via the ARM template.
