  1. Azure Automation & Source Control - Sync FROM Azure TO source control

    Currently Source Control (Preview) for Azure Automation allows you to sync from a source control repository into Azure Automation. I would like to see the reverse.

    We have SysAdmins that write and deploy automation scripts, but do not use Visual Studio nor do they have any sort of software lifecycle to these scripts. There is no need as they are automating administrative tasks.

    By connecting the automation accounts to source control (such as Azure DevOps) and allowing synchronization FROM Azure TO source control, the repository would act as a backup and automatic changelog.

    Options would include to sync on every…

    • HDInsight creation wizard is broken

      I shoose VMs from a given list.

      Later during cluster deployment I've got error "machine size is not supported for the role"

      Please take care of providing a list of machines I can deploy :)

      It's so frustrating.

      • Ability to roleback deployments done using ARM templates

        When deployments are done using ARM templates, currently there is no way to remove that deployment and all associated resources. While MS seems to suggest " All of the resources in your group should share the same life cycle" there are instances this is not always the case. Would be good to be able to see all deployments (deployment history) in the portal and be able to select and remove all resource associated to selected deployment (like AWS cloud formation)

              • New Mobile Experience for Azure DevOps

                The current mobile experience for Azure DevOps is very limited with only partial access to product backlog items. It would be really useful to be able to have access to a wider range of functionality from mobile, either through the web site or dedicated mobile apps. For example, access to boards, like in the Atlassian Trello or Jira apps, and wikis, as in Atlassian Confluence.

                  • Allow E.164 formated data for Office Phone in Azure MFA registration page

                    Office Phone in Azure MFA registration page usually get the data syncs from Azure AD but it will fail to get the data and display on Azure MFA registration page if the Azure AD is having the data in E.164 standard format.

                    Either let the users enter the office phone in the MFA registration page https://aka.ms/setup by themselves or allow the E.164 standard format from Azure AD to Azure MFA registration page

                        We need Azure files to have the same audit capabilities as Office 365.

                        • Add ability to delete multiple managed disks and network interfaces on portal

                          On the portal you can delete multiple VMs at once by selecting them and clicking "delete".
                          But when you delete VM usually you'd like to delete its disks and network interfaces as well,
                          However, to delete them you must open each disk/network interface individually and only then you'll see "delete" button. Especially painful if machine has multiple disks.

                          • Add IP Restrictions to Container Registry Access Keys

                            IP restrictions should be available on Container Registry so Access Keys can be restricted to only certain IP addresses.

                            This would add an additional layer of security so only certain approved IP addresses can upload new images.

                              Currently we can spin a VM scaleset of X VMs but we can only attach a public IP address to all VMs in the scaleset and not individual machines. We need an ability to attach public Ip addresses to individual VMs in a VM scaleset

                                • Allow custom Signing Certificate for Azure SSO Applications.

                                  Hi,

                                  This is a feature request for Azure SSO. Currently Azure generates the signing certificate for the Azure applications and its different for different applications.
                                  This worked fine except for one of the current configuration that we are trying to establish for an application/applications.

                                  This is a group of applications configured on Azure, all of those apps talk to a single SSO library to tackle SSO. The problem is that the SSO library is not able to identify the correct certificate for different apps as they are from same issuer.

                                  The solution to this would have been -
                                  If we…

                                  • Great article. I have to admit that there is so so much innovation coming out of Microsoft that it is hard to keep up.

                                    Maybe instead of talking about technical capabilities, the audience could be broken down by roles.

                                    • List the need of extra cores (Underlying vCPU) on Portal when resizing

                                      When upgrading to a constraint size VM, Portal only shows the amount of cores that is used/active. Would like to see the Portal also listing the amount of cores that it requires to have to upgrade instead of having to look up the information separately.

                                      • Prevent Creation of Classic Machine Learning Web Services so Tags can be Enforced

                                        Prevent Creation of Legacy Machine Learning Workspace Commitment Plans and classic web services so Tags can be Enforced.

                                        Our organization sets a Tag policy on resource groups so that newly created resources within that resource group will inherit tags. The main tag is 'Department Code', and is used for Chargeback for resource usage. Any Machine Learning 'classic' web services, that were created using the Machine Learning Studio portal will be created outside of the standard tagged resource group and thus, will not inherit standard tags used for Chargeback.

                                        We also need a migration method for existing classic web services to…

                                        • Mobile Virtual Space

                                          These days - we all have tons of apps installed on our mobile and getting lot more apps has always been a dream to many of us. But what is really stopping to keep adding apps is the memory, space , performance constraint on our mobiles. Relating this to our cloud era- when our on-premise data centers had challenges in scaling up ; we heard that cloud is the solution - so that it allows us to scale up , pause , save money as needed; why cant we have similar concept for mobile apps to ? Why cant Microsoft…
