  1. Improve the readability of placeholder text in the Azure Portal

    In the Azure Portal, when entering a filter in the Cosmos DB Data Explorer (Mongo DB settings), I can cannot read the placeholder text
    "Type a query predicate (e.g., {´a´:´foo´}), or choose one from the drop down list, or leave empty to query all documents." because it is too similar to the white background. Make it slightly more readable please.

    • Fix the URLs in the "We could really use your feedback" email

      I received a request for feedback email (5.48am NZ, 22/11/2017) from "Microsoft Azure". None of the "Submit your rating" URLs work - they all return 404s responses.

        • Create a separate Azure account type for B2B users

          Not sure if this already covered somewhere else but....

          Azure account types should be: 1) User; 2) B2B, 3) Guest.

          Trying to manage permission for B2B users is not working as well as it could in Azure. We need to be able to manage access for B2B users whilst not impacting access restrictions on Guest users (vice versa).

          • Allow Forced Reboot when using Update Management

            Just used the Update Management blade in the automation account, and it works very well.

            I did run into one issue where the Patch-MicrosoftOMSComputers didn't reboot a machine that had users logged into it. This was inconvenient, since the maintenance window had been previously communicated to the users, and we were authorized to reboot the machine at that time.

            Can a checkbox be added to allow a shutdown when users are logged in?

            As an aside, I was also surprised to see that the Microsoft-provided Azure Runbook Patch-MicrosoftOMSComputers was calling the command shell command 'shutdown'. I would have at least…

            • App Center should records and provides user custom events that it it more than 10, not treating "Other"

              Currently App Center can collect user custom event.
              But when we watch these data from Web UI or via API, event properties value counts limited up to about 10 values... minor values are treated as Other.

              • Add labels to desktop

                Please could you add the ability to add labels to the desktop.

                Our desktop has many different graphs for different applications but we have to remember which graph is which. For instance, if you put 2 database graphs side by side, there is no way to know which one is which. If we could add labels to the desktop on the portal, we could use that to lay out different sections.

                • Add support/Install .NET Core 2.0.3 in Azure App Services

                  When deploying a web application that was updated to the latest .NET Core 2.0.3 release I get the following error:

                  The specified framework 'Microsoft.NETCore.App', version '2.0.3' was not found.

                              • Provide policies against ARM templates

                                It would be nice if I could apply a subscription or resource group wide policy to require that certain arbitrary ARM settings be enabled or configured a certain way.

                                One thing that comes to mind is to require the SQL Server AD Admin account be consistently set on all Azure SQL databases across the subscription.

                                This policy would sort of overlay on top of any resources you published or created, override values, or otherwise restrict what you could do.

                                • Allow Sticky tab Switching in Microsoft Teams

                                  When switching back and forth from the "Chat" tab to the "Teams" tab in Microsoft Teams, your place in the "Teams" tab is lost and you have to browser to whatever Wiki/file/etc. you were looking at before.

                                  It would be nice if switching back-and-forth between Teams tabs picked up where you left off.

                                  • Make link static to Azure IP definitions XML file

                                    The link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41653 exposes https://download.microsoft.com/download/0/1/8/018E208D-54F8-44CD-AA26-CD7BC9524A8C/PublicIPs_20171106.xml .. the link changes each time the file is updated. Please offer this as a static link or put rewrite-magic to redirect to latest version. Link-rot is bad.

                                    • B2B invitation status

                                      Azure Active Directory B2B account.

                                      Now there isn't possiblity to generate report, if B2B user has activated account or not. It would be good to have feature to list not activated users from administrative perspective. Example when doing acocunt clean up.

                                      There are fields in profile like Source which contain Invited user or Resend invitation button is visible. Those indicates if user hasn't activated invitation.

                                      Or even have automatic removal on directory, if invitation hasn't been approved within X days, B2B account is removed automatically. As if account hasn't been activated, it cannot be used anywhere.

                                      • Add IPv6 support for VM Scalesets

                                        Please add IPv6 support for VM scalesets. You recommend using scalesets over individual VMs (with very good reason!) but I can't believe it doesn't support IPv6 yet. This seems like a big gap in today's world.

                                        • Set quota control for cognitive service

                                          There is no quota control in the cognitive service now. The overage charge cannot be controlled on the service provider side. It is necessary to provide the ability for customer to appropriately control their usage and billing.
