  1. Azure ARM check previous infrastructure status

    I am working with Azure Templates (ARM). I have to create a lot of resources and I will like to know a way to check what is going to be changed in my infrastructure.

    I searched a lot for any information related with this GREAT FEATURE (if there is one) but I did not find anything. So I will like to know if there is any way to see which resources are going to be change . I know about this for Chef and Ansible because they have a dry mode or testing mode that provide you with a summary…

  2. Update Point-to-Site Documentation to Include Root Certificate Installation

    This article needs to be updated:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/vpn-gateway/vpn-gateway-howto-point-to-site-classic-azure-portal

    I spent an entire week with Microsoft techs trying to resolve an error I was getting on all three of my VPN client devices:
    A certificate could not be found that can be used with this Extensible Authentication Protocol. (Error 798

    Finally one of the support techs told me that I needed to install the root certificate on the client device. When I told him that the documentation did not say to do that, he told me I was correct, but that I was indeed required to do it in order for the…

  3. 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;…

  4. Allow resources to be moved between trusted ADs

    We had a need to switch trusted AD for our subscription, but figured out that many Azure resources keep their configuration in AD (e.g. Web Apps, Key Vault, Team Services etc). Since we had quite a lot services deployed and running we couldn't have been able to perform this switch.
    I suggest to have an option to migrate the whole set of existed resources in the subscription to another AD when the trusted AD is being switched.

  6. Searchable comments on feedback.azure.com

    Hi,

    These feedback forums are great!

    I noticed that searching for feedback doesn't search comments - can I suggest this be included? Often there is more detail added in comments since the original feedback post cannot be edited by the author, and also other users will add new perspectives or insights.

    This will help reduce duplication/fragmentation of ideas across multiple feedback items and allow votes to be more representative.

    Cheers
    Ben

  7. Add scheduled key regeneration as an option on the storage account access key blade

    Storage account access keys should be regenerated frequently. Please add an option that allows the user to enable scheduled regeneration of the keys from within the storage account access key blade.

  8. *********** test approval form

    Hi,

    This form ('*********** test approval form') needs to be re-worked.
    1. I am able to select a cloud as a resource type service from a drop-down list but I cannot find a 'resource group' in that list
    2. 'Azure DNS name of resource' is not quite a happy coloumn title as some machines only have IPs, and not DNS names.

    Please reconsider & update.

    BR,

    George Costache

  9. let us change our password without having to go to our system admin.

    The system will let us log in with the expired password. But, when we go to use an app on the server - it prompts us that our password has expired and that we have to get with our system admin or tech support for assistance.

    Speed up the process by allowing us to change our passwords without having to wait on them!!

  10. 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

  12. EA: Managing subscriptions operations by multiple users, not by single account owner

    This is regarding Azure account & subscription management in Enterprise Agreement
    There is a scenario where the account owner is not available for considerable long time due to his/her sick/vacation leave or long biz trip for example, which cause subscriptions operations downtime.
    To avoid that, we should be able to have multiple users for such subscriptions operations.

  13. Better way to take the vm golden images

    The procedure to take vm golden image and spin up new instances using the same image is a very lengthy procedure and requires technical guys to mess up with the azure templates and do it.

    This task however can be delegated to less technical people (who knows how to operate a software ) to simply take images using gui and spinning up a new virtual machine/s using the same golden image.

  14. Windows Azure VMs should come with PowerShell v5 or greater provisioned.

    Apparently, Windows Azure VMs come with PowerShell v4.
    Azure cmdlets seem to need PowerShell v5. So, VMs should be provisioned with PowerShell v5 by default.
    Or, there should be a way to easily indicate what version of powershell should be on the image when provisioning, I suppose via an extension of some sort.

  15. Do not let users create GPU instances running Ubuntu 14.04

    The NVIDIA GPU drivers are only compatible with Ubuntu 16.04 as noted in the documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/virtual-machines-linux-n-series-driver-setup

    However, the Azure portal allows users to create GPU instances running Ubuntu 14.04. This is extremely confusing for new users who aren't aware of this restriction while creating their instances. Personally I wasted a lot of time trying to install drivers on three different virtual machines because this restriction was not clear.

    If we prevent users from creating GPU instances running 14.04 then we can avoid this problem altogether.

  17. Make a CAD for Board Development in Visual Studio

    Not really Azure related, but...

    How about extending Visual Studio so that I can drag and drop a Raspberry Pi or some other device from the toolbox? I can then drag over a power source, some wires/lights/resistors/servos/etc.. and connect them to the board. VS tells me if the circuit is complete and any problems with the wiring. I then can write code and see how the emulated device behaves. I then can send the code to a real Raspberry PI plugged in (like you do now). It would greatly help software devs looking at EE for the 1st time.

  18. 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.

  19. Make it easier to figure out why my virtual server keeps stopping by itself. It's important that servers do not stop without good reason.

    I'm a Bizspark trial user, and my servers keep stopping and I don't know why. "Activity log" only lists server start events, not stop events. Finding out whether servers are stopping because Bizspark subscription exceeded seems difficult. I want my servers to stay running
