  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Support Terraform as first class citizen for Azure automation

    Directly handle development and support of the Terraform Azure provider, ensuring all resources at Azure have corresponding resource in Terraform. Handle Terraform as a first-class citizen in the Azure ecosystem, as it is preferred over the Azure CLI or ARM templates for managing even small cloud deployments. Currently Terraform support for Azure resources lags behind ARM or CLI support. For example, it is currently not possible to provision an HDInsight cluster in Terraform without the painful use of ARM templates. Microsoft should release Terraform support concurrently with new resource type availability.

  5. Better curate User Voice forums.

    Finding existing issues in the SQL Server User Voice Forum is very difficult. Clearly some of the items should be retired. (Eg SQL 2005 issues) The basic search does not work very well.

  7. Create PowerShell cmdlets to manage Hybrid worker group settings

    Please, provide PowerShell cmdlets to manage Hybrid worker group settings like "Run As credential".

    Currently, I have to use the Azure Rest API in order to change the RunAs Credential used by the Hybrid Worker Group.

    It would be nice to be able to do it using AzureRm cmdlets that I can run in the same Azure Context as all other AzureRm cmdlets.

  8. Add "Least Connection" style algorithm to Azure Load Balancers

    Other manufacturers of LoadBalancer technology allow many different options for load balancing method.
    One of the most useful is "Least Connection" where new incoming sessions are routed to the server with the least number of client connections already.
    This makes for a very even and efficient distribution of traffic.
    The current sourceIP+protocol distribution is very uneven and puts more load on a single webserver.

  9. Rouge Admin Protection

    I would like to see some functionality that mitigates the risk of Rouge Administrator accounts. If an employee who is an Azure administrator goes crazy or their Azure account gets hacked then they could deliberately delete the whole Azure tenancy in a very short amount of time. This includes Azure backups.

    I would like to see some functionality that could resurrect the Azure environment if that occurred.

    You can take many precautions to protect Azure admin accounts but system administrators can become disgruntled employees just like any other employee. At the moment I don't believe Azure offers any protection from…

  10. Azure VM's public IP traceable to organisation's domain

  11. add a resource for individual developers

    I don't think you need new features for individual developers, but it would be nice to just have a basic guide that highlights some appropriate resource configurations for individual/hobbyist developers. The problem is less that Azure isn't appropriate, and more that it's incredibly overwhelming.

  12. Create Service Principal from CreateUIDefinitions like the Microsoft AKS definition has

    I am trying to create a one click setup of an application running on top of Microsoft AKS. I want to create my UIDefinitions.json file, and I want it to have the option that Microsoft AKS wizard has which allows creation of a new service principal, and store the ID and securestring in a variable I can pass to my ARM template. However, I cannot find anything in the documentation that allows me to achieve that in the documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/managed-applications/create-uidefinition-overview) or the quick start templates on github.

    How does one actually go about achieving this?

  13. Automatically split invoices over 10k in others less than 10k to avoid credit card payment issues

    My credit card/bank has no issues processing amounts greater than 10k, but Azure cannot process those payments. Each month, I have to create a new support ticket with Azure and ask for splitting the invoice and Azure re-process the payment successfully. Solution will be to increase that 10k limit. But if that is not possible, generate more than one invoice less than 10k.

  14. AzureAD must log events from empty User Agent strings

    It seems that AzureAD does not log any login attempts or successful log in from applications presenting a null or empty UserAgent string. This effectively hides the logins from AzureAD logs and from Cloud App Security. This is critical security flaw which allows rogue applications to authenticate without any logging and invisible to various reports and tools. According to support ticket we have opened this seems to be intentional which to our mind is completely nonsense and beyond any logic.

    Any login attempt, successful or otherwise should be logged, regardless of user agent string. Either log it or block the…

  15. Add permanent color-coding / skinning of different ADs and/or subscriptions in Azure Portal

    This would be of great help to visually distinguish e.g. prod vs non-prod environments. Current AD-based color coding is not permanent (clicking on background changes its color) and color choices are very limited

  16. make the Azure site-to-site VPN gateway support fixed public IP address

    We are working with a cloud service provider that supports VPN connections but they want an IP address for out end point. We don't want to use a dynamic IP address and that is the only option available on Azure at the moment.

  17. Cosmos DB - auto alert when patch is applied

    Can you please look at providing alerting rules for when a when a patch is applied to VMs & Cosmos DB regions. This alert would notify us there has been a change and allow us to schedule testing to ensure continued functionality of service. August '18 patch broke some of our functionality and it took a weeks investigation to identify it was to do with an Azure patch.

  20. Enable Hardware Backed MFA

    It would be very nice if the Azure platform allowed for use of Hardware Backed MFA devices such as a Yubikey. It would make life much easier for those of us who manage azure accounts for our clients.
