  1. zipping and unzipping folders/container as a buil-in api for the blob storage

    It would be nice to be able to zip multiple folders or a container on another container.
    The purpose being that if you have a lot of small files, it would be super slow to download them on another server over the network one by one.

      • Alerts - no subnet rules

        New generation of alerts don't support as many rules as classic alerts.
        I need to make a alert with a rule which is "Create or Update Virtual Network Subnet" but there is no such rule.
        On the other hand, classic alerts has this rule option.

        Suggestion: Update azure portal to have enough alert rules including Subnet.

        • Bug: Slot resource creation behavior different based on "kind" of web site

          Creating a slot resource outside of a Microsoft.Web/sites' resources property (creating the slot in a separate deployment or template) is allowed when the "kind" of Microsoft.Web/site that the slot belongs to is "webapp." When creating a slot in a separate deployment for a Microsoft.Web/site of the kind "functionapp" it throws an InternalError with no helpful debugging information.

          If this is intentional it is not documented.

              • Same name servers pool for all DNS public Zones per subscription

                We would like to migrate from other DNS provider to Azure DNS. There will be almost 600 zones. It its absolutely unmanageable to take Azure DNS name servers zone by zone and update each domain register. Please, considerate the possibility to have the same name servers pool for all zones for the same subscription or even better, give the possibility to stablish different name server pools and assign to zones.
                Thanks in advanced.

                  • Sign a JWT with RSA SHA256 in APIM Policy Expression

                    Provide access to RSACryptoServiceProvider or System.IdentityModel.Tokens.Jwt so that its possible to construct and sign a JWT from a policy expression within Azure API Management.

                    Right now there's no libraries to help with signing JWTs within a policy in APIM. In scenarios where APIM needs to invoke backend APIs which dictate a security protocol which requires signed JWTs (ex. https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7523 on Salesforce) you need a backend API between APIM and your platform just to do the token exchange.

                      Although many of the Microsoft-assigned status for suggestions are pretty clear, some of them ("unplanned") are not. A tooltip or similar describing Microsoft's definition of each status would be handy.

                      • Improve VM Agent compatibility with LogMeIn Hamachi

                        When LogMeIn Hamachi is installed on a Windows Azure Virtual Machine, occasionally the Windows Azure Agent tries to connect through the Hamachi virtual network adapter instead of the VM's Hyper-V network adapter. This results in the agent reporting "Not Available" and backups fail. I have found that about once a month I need to uninstall Hamachi, reboot the server, check that the agent can connect again, and then re-install Hamachi. It would be great to update the Azure Agent to handle this better. Errors in the agent log include "Failed to obtain fabric URI. ControlSystem not initialized" and "Did not…

                        • Change Load Balancer hash algorithm for 2- and 3-tuple hashes

                          It appears that Load Balancer uses the same algorithm to calculate hashes for 2-, 3- and 5-tuple hashes. This way for 2- and 3-tuple hashes there is simply less input variables and source IP addresses from the same subnet receive the same hash value. With the same hash these clients get connected to the same node in the Load Balancer making very unbalanced load (in my case typical load distribution across 2-node LB is 90/10).

                          I suggest to change hash algorithm for 2- and 3-tuple hashes so it produces different hash values.

I have been using Azure IOT example to monitor sensor readings of Wireless frequency meter https://store.ncd.io/product/iot-long-range-wireless-pulse-frequency-meter/ through esp8266 and I have no Idea to use it in making this kind solution so any suggetion will be great help. as while working with simple example also the connection error "-5" occurs and I am unaware of this issue too. Your leads on this problem will be much helpful.

                                • Be able to easily select all domains in the metrics graph.

                                  Hello,
                                  My company owns quite a lot of domains and we run them in Azure.

                                  In the metrics graph you can easily add a domain to show some basic statistics on it, like amount of queries for example.
                                  If I'd want to add all my 140 domains I would have to add them 1 by 1 to the graph. This is not a good solution.

                                  What I'd want is an easy way to see the total amount of queries for all domains. It could be solved by adding a select all box in the metrics graph for example. As queries…

                                  • Internal Load Balancer endpoint for App Service without ASE

                                    ASE provides a great solution for isolation of security critical applications, but it comes at the cost of paying Isolated tier pricing and longer times for scaling operaitons (which mean you need to run with a little more "head room"). For applications that do not have the isolation requirements of ASE but would still benefit from the best practice of putting public facing websites behind a WAF, it would be good to have the ability to ensure that only traffic from a WAF can hit the service endpoint.

                                      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)
