  1. Azure plataform, small business, brazilian location,

    Dear MS, i'm simple enchanted with the azure plataform. As a 3 world businessman, i try to look forward and see big and small business sharing the same technology, on next years. can we think as fabien (open erp) and look forward? with all visual suít and etc... why we cant focus on small business, whoio needs technology too? i guarantee that, Microsoft will sell more Windows and office licenses than ever. Maybe small business ppl arent ready now, but they shall be on future, when a lot of developers will come with a lot of options for us............... idk,maybe…

    • support ESI (Edge Side Includes) in the Application Gateway and CDN like Vanish or Akamai.

      ESI can be a great feature for server side content based integration ( transclude of html fragments ) in a microservice architecture. For more information please read : ( https://gustafnk.github.io/microservice-websites/#integrating-on-content ).

      • App Service Environments Architecture and Cost

        I love using App Service Environments; however, the cost is shocking. We like that our App service can communicate over our express route to our data center. I gained some new understandings with how these services work on the back-end and it seems confusing. I have an understanding that normal App Service Plans operate such that a fault tolerant pair is available in a different part of the data center and in the event of a failure, your code is moved to the other pair. This is great and I love that. With ASE's the architecture changes and the use…

        • ARM Template IF function should not evaluate both TRUE and FALSE during processing

          The ARM IF function (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/resource-group-template-functions-logical#if) is incredibly useful for templates, but evaluates both sides of the result (True and false) which causes lots of issues.

          See:
          * https://stackoverflow.com/questions/45979991/arm-template-conditional-output-parameters
          * https://stackoverflow.com/questions/45923848/can-i-have-an-arm-template-resource-with-a-copy-array-of-0-to-n

          A very simple example of this is in this template:

          {
          "$schema": "https://schema.management.azure.com/schemas/2015-01-01/deploymentTemplate.json#",
          "contentVersion": "1.0.0.0",
          "parameters": {},
          "variables": {
          "AVSRootName": "AVSRoot"
          },
          "resources": [
          {
          "name": "[if(bool('true'), concat(variables('AVSRootName'),div(10, 2)),concat(variables('AVSRootName'),div(10, 0)))]",
          "type": "Microsoft.Compute/availabilitySets",
          "location": "[resourceGroup().location]",
          "apiVersion": "2015-06-15",
          "dependsOn": [],
          "tags": {
          "displayName": "AVS"
          },
          "properties": {
          "platformUpdateDomainCount": 1,
          "platformFaultDomainCount": 1
          }
          }
          ]
          }

          Which will always throw this error:

          • Add mailing option if backup is successful.

            Add mailing option if backup is successful.
            In the "Alerts and Events" tab -> "Backup Alerts" -> "Configure Notifications" only 3 options appear (Critical, Warning, Information).
            You could add a new option that was "Success" for submission if successful.
            Thanks for reading our suggestion.

            • Not to convert the service for famous port number when confirgurating the NSG rule

              Currently when creating a new NSG rule in portal or PowerShell with a famous port number as the service, the service will be convert to the pre-defined one even if I choose custom service. I want that the service remains to be the custom one.

              • Add support to Automation for AZ CLI

                AZ CLI in BASH is powerful, easy to use and has commands such as file copy batch that are superior to PowerShell. It would be great to add CLI support for Automation / Run Books to keep efforts consistent.

                  • Setup quota's and quota alerts azure backup

                    Hi,

                    I think it would be great if we can manage storage quotas's or at least get alerts once a 100GB milestone is closing in .

                    At this moment a recovery vault just grows uncontrollably, and it is really hard to keep track of the costs.

                    Kind regards,

                    Daniël Veldman

                    • Provide PowerShell script when performing functions on the portal

                      When you do something like power on a VM, change a NIC setting or create a Virtual Network etc, it would be nice to be able to see the PowerShell commands that are needed to make this happen so we can automate easier. VMM does this already.

                              • Simplify the manage web interface. The billing statement should be easier to find.

                                It´s very hard find something in the system and the interface is changed frequently what become the things worse.

                                Every month I need search where is located the billing statement. This should be easier. Until now I couldn´t found where is it.

                                • Set Idle Disconnect time out from Azure side for P2S VPN

                                  For P2S VPN, there is no idle timeout option from the Azure side. It can be set on the client side, but this is no help to Admins wanting to prohibit people from staying connected indefinitely.

                                  Please create an option to set idle timeout (or timeout in general) from Azure Portal.

                                  • Ability to share a managed image with other subscriptions

                                    The classic use case is when building a base image to be used as a foundation to build other, specialised images for applications. Having to create snapshots and copy them to other subscriptions is hard and time consuming - what would be ideal is to have parity with AWS, where one can share a private AMI with other account IDs.

                                    • PrivateFontCollection is not working

                                      The PrivateFontCollection is required for PDF and other renderings that need to measure text and prepare glyphs with the customers custom (not installed font) for layout purposes.

                                      The PrivateFontCollection internally uses the GDI API calls like NtGdiAddFontResourceW that is blocked by the AppServices backend. This is confirmed by Azure representative.

                                      Without the PrivateFontCollection in Azure AppServices only installed fonts can be used for rendering with Telerik Reporting and I suppose with many other similar products.

                                      Thank you.

                                        • BGP Peering IP modification on different subnet

                                          Hey,
                                          For business purpose, we wanna offer an idea of selecting peering IP from non-GW subnet while using Azure VPN BGP. this IP was currnetly allocated from ge subnet. but we wanna change to specific IP . let's say our address space range is 10.0.0.0/16, but our GW subnet is 10.0.0.0/24, Peering IP is 10.0.0.254. but one of subnet is 10.13.100.70/28, we wanna change peering IP to 10.13.100.70. but this is impossible, could we make some changes in further?
