  1. Microsoft Azure203x(Azure Virtual Networks)Certificate NOT RECEIVED for over 4 Months.

    It is with disappointment that I write to inform that after receiving a voucher from "Fast Lane LIVE <info@fastlane.live>",15th May 2018 on passing Microsoft Azure 203x(Microsoft Virtual Networks) and the voucher validated on 16th May 2018 at "https://academy.microsoft.com/en-us/voucher&quot; and "https://cloudsociety.learning.microsoft.com/oauth2/authorize/confirm", I haven't received my certificate till date. I have contacted both ITLS and Fastlane in a series of emails and they informed that they have escalated the issue on several occasions with dates like 3rd June 2018 and 23rd Oct.2018 significant where I concluded that they are totally helpless. I am not happy. On…

      • Application Service Environment for Developer

        As a developer, I would like to have a closed environment for development purposes of PAAS and Function applications. An environment similar to ASE that can be configured for network isolation but smaller and cheaper.

          • Choose Azure Application Proxy Location

            We have users who are accessing application published through the Azure AD Application Proxy hosted within the US2 or USW region. Our Azure AD Tenant is registered in the Australia region.

            What we've realised is that when users access these apps, traffic would first be routed through the Azure App Proxy service in the AU region before being routed through the connectors hosted near the apps in either the US2 or USW region. This introduces high latency due to the hop between the AU and USW/2 region.

            Consider allowing customers to move their Azure Application Proxy service to other regions.

            • Add alerting capabilities to SQL Elastic Job Agent

              As a SQL DBA, I would like SQL Elastic Job Agent to send email or webhook alert when a job fails, retries, starts, or finished.

              Integration with Azure Monitor would be preferred.

              Thank you!

                  • Webpage azure subscription amendment

                    I suggest that you include the information on the web-page that 3rd party cookies are needed – OR a better solution is not to use 3rd party cookies at all. Was not able to make any adjustments without accepting 3rd party cookies.

                    • office 365 group expiration

                      Within the Office 365 Group Expiration setup there should be a way to set it such that all groups *except* specific ones are subject to the expiration setting. As it stands now it's the other way around; all groups or only the selected ones. In an environment where users are permitted to created their own groups (something I was told even Microsoft allows) you really need the expiration feature enabled by default. But there are certainly use cases where as an admin you will want specific groups exempted from this setting.

                      • expand Https filter options for the other imageType filter query parameters (Clipart, Line, Photo, etc.) for the Bing Images Search API

                        Right now, the AnimatedGifHttps filter query parameter is the only option that returns results from an Https address. It works great, but there is no equal for static images. Many apps can only display Https content.

                          Have Azure Budget notifications/alert email for Resource Group and subscription give a estimation or forecast on current consumption on when the Budget will actually be reached to help give users a good idea on when the budget will be met - especially if it is before the months end.

                          • Link to all FAQ's from a central point

                            It would be good to see all Azure FAQ's signposted from a single point (another cloud service provider does this: https://aws.amazon.com/faqs/). For context, I'm building a chatbot for internal use where colleagues can ask about services provided by our CCoE, and would like to be able to also respond to questions about general Azure services. If there were a pre-existing KB I could link to, that would be great.

                              Admins should be able to find the preferred option and phone number user selected so that in case of any issues helpdesk administrator should be able to check and guide users appropriately.
                              Currently there is only power shell command but there should be something in portal UI as well so that it will be easy for helpdesk administrators

                              • Provide the ability to use the pair_matching target with Extended Events in Azure SQL DB

                                When using Extended Events with SQL Server (on-prem) there are multiple targets available, including the pair_matching target. This target is extremely useful for troubleshooting timeout issues. The target is not available in Azure SQL DB, even though other memory-resident targets (e.g. event_counter, ring_buffer) are available. Please consider adding this target as an event consumer to help troubleshoot timeout, and other, issues related to unmatched events.

                                • Forward Request's Original Host

                                  This is useful when backend services need a way to recognize the client's requested domain (i.e. multitenant saas based on custom domains).

                                  X-Forwarded-Host or other custom header where we can get the original domain's name.

                                    • Offer B-Series ala carte CPU credits priced based on current demand "spot market"

                                      I have B-Series virtual machines that most of the time have plenty of CPU credits in reserve, but about twice a month I need 12-24 hours of use at nearly 100% CPU. It would be nice to have the option purchasing additional CPU credits as opposed to reprovisioning at some higher level of service for that short period of time.

                                      • Allow horizontal scrolling on a pageable grid

                                        The way that Scrolling is currently implemented, it forces both a vertical and horizontal scrolling.
                                        We would like to use paging for getting more rows, and horizontal scrolling to enable the user to add many columns, and still see them clearly.

                                        • make the storage explorer for OSX signed by a valid developer

                                          See thread here: https://twitter.com/AzureSupport/status/1054578980123111424

                                          Basically: discover I am coming from OSX, make me download a .dmg, sign it properly so I don't need to relax my security settings.
