  1. Guide to tutorial transfer from Azure

    It would be nice if there was an easy to find page on how to transfer a domain away from Azure. Currently, the only information is on the button of an FAQ page and even that is lacklustre.

  3. Mention that for Free Trial Subscriptions, the option in B2C for first 50,000 free does not apply.

    I discovered via via going through Azure support that the first 50,000 Free Option detailed in the link below applies to paid Subscriptions.

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/pricing/details/active-directory-b2c/

    For Free Trial Subscriptions, there is no free tier.

    Although this makes sense, it may help to avoid confusion for other users be adding a note to this effect at the link above.

  4. Azure Data Catalog ~ multi-asset "open in..."

    When you select a single asset in Azure Data Catalog, you have the option to "open in..." other tools (e.g. Power BI, Excel, etc.). However, when you select multiple assets, the "open in..." option is disabled. Not being able to open multiple assets simultaneously severely limits the utility of Azure Data Catalog. One use case for opening multiple assets simultaneously is creating a model in Power BI that uses more than one table.

  5. Fix Visual Studio 2012 download link

    The Visual Studio 2012 downloads: https://my.visualstudio.com/Downloads?q=Visual%20Studio%202012

    Lists Visual Studio 2012, which i assume means Standard, but instead is actually "IntelliTrace Collector for Visual Studio 2012 (x86) - (Multiple Languages)"

    Please fix/add the link.

  6. support Firefox for using Azure

    It would be great if Firefox would be fully supported. I auto-update my Firefox, so assume I have the newest version.

    In Azure, many functions do not work, though.
    Trying to test a `web chat bot' always returns:
    "There was an error signing you in. Refresh and try again."

    Other services are also not available.

  7. Azure Face API Require Improvements

    Azure Face API returning less confidence for same person

    For our application we are using Azure Face API to build training set for each person. We are using "LargePersonGroup" for our application. We have created "Person" inside group for all user profiles we have. Every time new face is added for a person we "Train" the whole group. This is how we have implemented.

    Now the issue is when we call "Identify" to validate an uploaded image with a certain confidence threshold which is 0.95 (95%) in our case system is returning very less confidences even for same user images.…

  8. Allow invoice payment with external services

    Currently if you have an external service, in our case a Barracuda Firewall, we are unable to change payment to the invoice method.

    The only way of doing this would be to delete the external service, change to invoice and then re-add the external service which i cannot do.

    Please do the right thing and enable invoice payment with or without external services.

  9. Enable Azure Machine Learning Workbench users to download the metrics from the data preparation window in markdown format

    Data preparation metrics can be added as a separate python script for users to paste the EDA results as part of a markdown file or on an IPynb directly.

  10. Expand Web App IP restrictions to support a friendly names like the SQL Server Firewall

    The new IP Restrictions with the networking section of the WebApp works great, a nice to have would be to associate a friendly name to each whitelisted IP Address. This functionality is available as part of the SQL Server firewall and it is great that we can associate the IP to a friendly name like an office or clients public ip.

  11. The “rate” in the Azure usage report is different from Ratecard API - MeterRates

    I'm using the Pay-As-You-Go offer type (0003P) and found out the "rate" for some of the services are not the same with by using Ratecard API.

    ex: the rate is "0.624988" for A0 VM (Windows) in JA East from usage report, but "0.7213" in MeterRate from Ratecard API. (Currency is TWD)

    I followed the article: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/mt219004.aspx

    And here is my request example: https://management.azure.com/subscriptions/2984436c-xxxx-xxxx-805b-bc5d15be7ad8/providers/Microsoft.Commerce/RateCard?api-version=2015-06-01-preview&$filter=OfferDurableId%20eq%20%27MS-AZR-0003p%27%20and%20Currency%20eq%20%27TWD%27%20and%20Locale%20eq%20%27zh-TW%27%20and%20RegionInfo%20eq%20%27TW%27

    Does anyone knows how to modify the request endpoint to get the same rate from Ratecard align with the usage report ?

  12. Standard I/O blob meter shown in red even on PAYG

    Once the free I/O blob service is exceeded the usage graph shows this in red, even though the service is on PAYG, which implies something is wrong, For those who pay for their service, just a simple warning, for example say an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle, with a warning saying ‘service now payed for – free service exceeded’ would be a better idea

  13. Azure Policy - Add a property that only evals resources that have a meter

    Would be great to have a property (similar to the "indexed" vs "all") that would only evaluate resources that are billable / have a meter. This would be helpful for tagging policies.

    For example, no reason to need a GL / Cost Center on "/microsoft.portal/dashboards". Plus, you can't even set tags on this (and many other) types of resources in the portal.

  14. Update SSL Cert option for Application Gateway in Portal

    Please add an update ssl option into application gateway. This should be a mandatory feature since ssl certs are change frequently. The current process through powershell is too complicated for such a simple management task.

  15. Azure Storage explorer

  16. We request a change to not reset the partner information on a change of owner if the tenant and AAD are not changing.

    During a subscription ownership transfer between accounts within the same AAD tenant, the DPOR (Digital Partner of record) resets forcing us to re-add the partner information on the subscription. We request a change to not reset the partner information on a change of owner if the tenant and AAD are not changing.

  17. Rather than terminating an account violating the terms of service with no notice, give customer 24 hours to fix it.

    Rather than terminating an account (paid account, killing off a free account with no notice is fine) violating the terms of service with no notice, give customer 24 hours to fix it. Customer received no notice and a $5k account was disabled in the middle of the night. No warning was provided and support claimed they could detail the reason for this interruption.

  18. enable a storage vault for on prem servers to enable quicker recovery

    It would be useful if on prem servers had the ability to recover files from an on prem backup disk. This disk would need to managed by the Azure backup and kept in sync with the backup in the MS datacenters. At recovery time, the file(s) would be restored from the on site disk, reducing recovery time.
