  1. Add more details about incoming approval on Windows Authenticator apps

    It would be good that authentication request would include source for request either by the app/service or IP address.

  2. I MUST BE ABLE TO SEND EMAIL CONFIRMATIONS WITHOUT BEING FORCED TO USE A RELAY

    I MUST BE ABLE TO SEND EMAIL CONFIRMATIONS WITHOUT BEING FORCED TO USE A RELAY !!!!! I have to use PHP mail and CDO directly from my Virtual Machine. Add that feature and I will return. Too many horror stories about SendGrid and other providers you force us to use.

  3. Security Audit Logging Dashboards for industry standard events on virtual machines

    Having to build custom dashboards to collect standard security events from Windows VMs would be a repeated task by many IT teams hosting production systems in Azure. The Azure system already logs similar information about Azure specific activities, it would be very helpful to extend this to a limited set of activities coming from the event system in windows VMs.

  4. Perform regular scans for hung resources

    Apparently, it happens that resources can be stuck somehow in the back-end. This suggestion is the result of a support request in which I had to contact the product group to delete resources that were in hung state.

    The resources (app service plan and web site) were deleted months ago, however, they just disappeared from the portal without being deleted in the back-end, resulting in a few months of additional charges for this service plan that was supposedly deleted (but for some reason just silently failed).

    Perhaps the back-end could use a regular scan to detect any hung resources and…

  5. Make Disk Encryption Easy

    In AWS, when I want to create a VM that is encrypted, I create a key store and then when I create the AMI I can create a copy of it and tick the encrypted option. It is very easy indeed and I can go from nothing to an encrypted machine in about 20 minutes.

    In Azure, I have to create a vault, create a key encryption key, create an application, allow the application access to the key vault, make a note in excel of about 28736 parameters, try to create the VM, work out why it failed, try to…

  7. At typescript compiler for Azure Functions

    When creating Azure Function in typescript I need to compile it before testing it or deploying code to Azure. Maybe Azure Functions could have typescript complier (tsc/babel) included. That would shorten dev time for typescript developers.

  8. Grouping feature in Azure Resource

    I wish to have Grouping feature by resource type to help me better manage my resources. Imagine if you have around 30-40 resources per environment then you have no intuitive view in a single view

  9. Add explicit description to say that an "Owner" doesn't equal to "Admin" in Azure subcription

    I got a new subscription from manager, and was granted "Owner" privilege in new portal. Then I needed to upload management certificate to Azure subscription for onboarding a service.

    As many people know, it is only doable to upload management certificate into Azure subscription in classic portal, so I went to the classic portal, and found that I couldn't find that subscription in classic portal.

    After consulting Azure support, I learnt that in new portal, the "Owner" role doesn't mean I can do everything as an administrator, actually, I need to have "Co-Admin" privilege to upload management certificate in classic…

  12. Get the zoo of tools a bit clearer in terms of purpose.

    I have been quite surprised by the amount of tools (azure CLI2.0, Azure Powershell cmdlets, az command, ...) to use to get out of an issue I faced with recreating a VM from a template because I mistakenly got a VM sysprepd using "stop". Not to mention templates on Github + reuse a VHD.... And the backup/restore vs "expected" snapshot behavior meaning was surprising.
    The inability to rename resources is also annoying.

    All of this should be somewhere upfront because it really makes the "first impression" somewhat bad.

  14. Passwordreset service badly translated to swedish

    Here are some suggestions that make the service more comprehensible:

    Change the title "Gå tillbaka till ditt konto" (Go back to yout acount) to "Återställ ditt lösenord" (Reset your password).

    Change the text "Kontrollera ditt mobiltelefonnummer" (Check your mobilephonenumber) to "Skriv ditt mobilnummer" (Type your mobilenumber).

    Change the button text "Text" to "Skicka" (Send).

    Change the text "Vi har skickat ett sms med verifieringskoden till din telefon" to "Skriv verifieringskoden som vi skickat till din telefon" (Write the verificationcode we sent to your telephone).

    The text/subtitle "verifieringssteg 1 > välj ett nytt lösenord" is superfluous.

  15. Microsoft reportedly planning spring hardware event without a new Surface Book 2

    Microsoft is reportedly planning to hold a special Surface hardware event in the spring. ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley reports that Microsoft will be holding a Surface hardware event, despite the Surface Book 2 reportedly not ready to appear at the press event. Microsoft typically holds its Surface hardware events in New York, but the software giant has not yet officially announced plans for a spring hardware showcase.

    DigiTimes claimed earlier this month that the next Surface Book would be a clamshell laptop design without a detachable display, and would be announced by the end of April. ZDNet claims the successor…

  17. Allow multiple subscription owners on an invoiced pay-as-you-go subscription

    We are a relatively small company with business critical deployments on Azure. We have an invoiced pay-as-you-go subscription, and simply would like to have multiple people in our organization with ownership-level access to our Azure subscription, to provide business continuity / redundancy. We are not in a position to engage via Enterprise Agreement, and were told that all we can do is transfer the subscription. Further, since we are invoiced, to transfer ownership to another individual within our company, we would need to go through MS credit again, and re-submit all the info required to be invoiced. This is a…

  18. Clarify Azure Application Gateway billing

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/application-gateway/ mentions that Application Gateway provides 'Per minute billing'.

    However the FAQ at the bottom of the page lists this:

    Is a partial hour billed as a full hour?
    Yes. A partial hour is billed as a full hour.

    Is the FAQ outdated?

  19. component where one can design circuit using various componets and simulate their IoT (data publisher)

    I would be a one stop solution if one can get a component to design their electronic circuits with famous components like Arduino and Raspberry pi, Esp8266, sensors and likewise and then simulate their circuit which shall display the current and voltage at selected point, also based on product select may suggest any additional protection circuit to apply. This will complete the circle of IoT designing and provide a one stop solution as Azure platform.
