      • 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.

        • 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.

            • When moving a resource

              When moving a resource (or resource group) to a new subscription.
              ask for real movement after the validation, this would enable a dry test upfront for planning

              • enable Azure MFA server to accept RADIUS attribute 31 for trusted IP evaluation.

                Currently the RADIUS client must send the authenticating user's IP address via attribute 66 for Azure MFA RADIUS server to correctly evaluate trusted IP addresses. It would be tremendously helpful if that was configurable so that an admin could select a different RADIUS attribute (such as 31) for trusted IP evaluation. We use a NetScaler gateway and it will currently only send RADIUS attribute 31 (Calling-Station-Id) to the RADIUs server. Quick fix I presume!

                • Let Web Apps to be PCI compliance

                  Despite that PCI compliance is promoted at Azure, a Web App created at Azure is non compliant by default, and cannot be set-up appropriately.

                  I understand that a Web App is not as isolated as an ASE (that still is not compliance by default, needs advanced set-up), with instances sharing system level settings with other clients (so cannot be changed independently), and I understand some set-up changes that apply to all clients, even ones that do not require PCI, can lead to problems to some of them.

                  I propose an option to opt-in to PCI compliance at Web App level;…

                  • Need for RBAC permission specialized for "Local Network Gateway".

                    At the moment, we do not have a permission specialized for RBAC.

                    As its background, we want to limit the amount of the permission which we assign to our user.
                    Since there are too many permissions when we add "Microsoft.Network/*", our user needs a permission specialized for Local Network Gateway.

                    We can set following permissions (Actions and NotActions) by setting up the NotActions listed below.
                    However, in order to avoid unexpected permissions when a new feature is released, could you kindly add specialized Local Network Gateway permission?

                    [Japanese]
                    RBAC の権限として、ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化したものがありません。

                    各ユーザーに対して、必要最小限の権限のみを与えたいと考えていますが、
                    "Microsoft.Network/*" を付与する方法では付与される権限が多すぎるため
                    ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化した権限を必要としています。

                    • Add nested resource groups

                      I would like to have nested resource groups. A scenario in which this can be usefull is in DTAP. You can create a resource group for the application/service; and within that resourcegroup you could create resource groups for all the DTAP stages. For Example: A resourcegroup called "MyApp" with resourcegroups "Dev", "Test", "Production" in it.

                      • Add manual and auto shutdown to Azure Container Service

                        Would be great to be able to shutdown all compute within an ACS cluster, both manually in the portal, and via an auto shutdown schedule. As it is currently you have to manually shut down the master VM and the VM Scale Sets.

                        • Disable or raise limit for paid SendGrid accounts

                          Allow users to create more than two paid SendGrid accounts.

                          Depending on your architecture layout you may want to set up single small SendGrid accounts per application and this is currently not possible as there's a hard limit set to two accounts, no matter if these are paid or free ones.

                          I'd suggest that you completely disable or at least raise the existing limit for paid SendGrid accounts.
                          For free accounts this limit totally makes sense but I can't understand why you set the same limit for paid resources here.

                            • 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.

                              • Add 2016-DataCenter-Server-Core available for Virtual Machine Scale Set Deployments from Portal

                                The Microsoft managed list of available images for scale sets currently does not include Windows Server 2016 Core. Providing our own image works but is painful as we must maintain the image.

                                Since Windows Server Core images are already managed by Microsoft for IAAS VMs, you should also offer this images for scale sets.

                                  • Create RBAC role to buy VSTS extensions

                                    Create a restricted RBAC role in ARM so users with this role on an Azure resource group or on the subscription, can buy VSTS extensions without the current need to be Contributor on the subscription level.

                                    • 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.
