  1. Allow for customization of AAD Sync Errors Notifications

    Right now there is only an off and of switch for Sync Error Notifications. There is no way to customize when we receive these alerts. I am only receiving them on Mondays around 5am.

    Microsoft should allow the customization of these notifications as our company needs to be notified in a more timely maner if there was an issue syncing a user.

    Most of the other alerts for AD Sync send a notification almost immediately when there is an issue. Waiting for 1-6 days to receive a notification will not work for my company.

    Hopefully this is something that will…

  2. Check Pause/Resume status of DataWarehouse using T-SQL

    It is great that I can check the scaled performance level of my data warehouses using a T-SQL query from the Microsoft SQL Azure master datebase:

    SELECT db.name, ds.edition, ds.serviceobjective, db.statedesc
    FROM sys.databaseserviceobjectives ds
    JOIN sys.databases db ON ds.databaseid = db.databaseid
    WHERE ds.edition = 'DataWarehouse'

    Please make it possible to check the true state of the data warehouse as well. This query always reports the data warehouse to be 'Online' even when it is really in a 'Paused' state.

    P.S. For the life of me, I can't understand why this functionality isn't already built…

  3. For each resource creation save the date and the user

    Usually when you create a resource you do not know when was created and by whom, the information in logs is available only for a determined period of time and then lost, that is something that will be very helpful to include in the Overview section.

  5. Expose v1 or v2 type of storage in Azure CLI/Powershell

    I want a way to query if a storage account is v1 or v2. In the portal its listed as storage kind however that value in poweshell only provides 'storage and doesn't differentiate between v1 or v2.

  6. Payment by credit card // Two different entities for payment

    In Portugal we have a system called MBNet that enables a bank client to create virtual visa cards, that can be used for a single transaction or multiple.

    We've created a new card valid for 12 months and added to the account.

    When the purchase is processed, Microsoft is performing a first try in the amount of 1 € and if this is successful, a new transaction is being performed in the amount of the invoice.

    The issue is that these two payments are performed from different entities and these virtual cards are binded to a single payment entity.

    This…

  8. Fix Sign-up Form

    Fix the ZIP CODE entry on your sign-up form. It will not let me enter my zip code. After entering Five Zip Code Numbers, then clicking on the Enter button, I get an error message stating that the Zip Code Is Too Short. It will not let me get past that point in my application, subsequently, I can not sign up. Thank you and have a good day.

  9. Allow customization for SSPR Pages

    Allow for organizations to customize the SSPR pages...particularly verification page and the page where users actually reset their passwords (both for sync'd and cloud only accounts)...for example, being able to post more details on the Get Back Into Account Page...or, providing users with the company password policy, so they do not run the risk of not making it long or complex enough multiple times and getting locked out

  10. Improve processing of face profiles

    Face Api does not appear to be particularly great at finding faces when the person is shown in profile, rather than a face-on image.

    Improve detecting to identify faces in profile.

  11. have the ability to snapshot a managed disk from one region to another

    It's quite time consuming to essentialy copy a managed disk from one region to another. You have to save it back to unmanaged, copy it to a sotrage account then mount it to a VM and migrate it. I have many geos where I want to deploy the same Image essentially and its really painful to do so even for just two regions.

  12. WAF - MAX File size limit (100 MB) increase to 500 MB or remove the restriction

    Our customers are uploading files which are more than 100 MB, due to the restriction users are unable to upload documents, and the files are getting corrupted, and also while uploading files users don't get any error msg or notification stating limitation set to 100 MB.

  14. API or button to export all Azure AD settings

    For documentation purposes, change management reviews and security audits, it would be highly beneficial that Azure AD could provide a way (either through a button or preferably through Powershell/Graph API) to export all settings from Azure AD. Examples of settings that would be relevant are (but not limited to):

    User settings > “Users can register applications”
    User settings > “Restrict access to Azure AD administration portal”
    User settings > “Allow users to connect work or school account with LinkedIn”
    Enterprise applications – User settings > “Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf”
    Enterprise applications – User…

  15. Improve the ordering of the deployments on functions

    This suggestion is in regards to the functions, specifically the deployment center.
    I cannot actually see the logic of how you are currently ordering the deployments (since it's not by date, and it's not by date-as-string). Previously, they were ordered by date, and that probably made most sense.

  16. Azure Data Lake Analytics: Schedule U-SQL Job

    As discussed on Twitter (https://twitter.com/AzureSupport/status/1039492841431609344):

    We currently have an Azure-only infrastructure, and we run both Azure Data Lake (ADL) and Azure Data Lake Analytics (ADLA). We use U-SQL jobs in ADLA to extract and store data from ADL for reporting and analytical purposes.

    Because we have recurring jobs (both daily and monthly) we would like to schedule those to extract and store data without any human interaction.

    Currently we see 2 options: automate a job-run through Data Factory, or Azure Automation (runbook that starts a U-SQL job). But a native scheduler in ADLA would be better. That way…

  17. Make Subscription transfer operation automatically change all inheritable resources

    Even after performing a transfer for a subscription, though it is visible at https://account.windowsazure.com/Subscriptions, the included Resource Group, Database Server, and SQL Database that belong to it are not seen at https://portal.azure.com/#blade/HubsExtension/Resources/resourceType/Microsoft.Resources%2Fresources until you go and access the “Access control (IAM)” screen and individually add the new transfer user as both an Owner and as a Co-administrator for the Database Server (under All Resources). I suggest all this be automated! I thought these settings would have been taken care of (or inherited) automatically when we initially transferred the subscription, but I was wrong. We were down unnecessarily for a…

  18. Deployment Error

    Hi,

    I am a new user of Azure. I tried to create a new App Services, but failed.

    The Error Message shows below:
    {"code":"DeploymentFailed","message":"At least one resource deployment operation failed. Please list deployment operations for details. Please see https://aka.ms/arm-debug for usage details.","details":[{"code":"NotFound","message":"{\r\n "error": {\r\n "code": "SubscriptionNotFound",\r\n "message": "The subscription '637b8c3c-4c51-4320-9793-9bf421c44ce0' could not be found."\r\n }\r\n}"}]}

    And I also went to the subscription page. The status is "active".

    Hope someone could help me figuring out why this error happened. Thank you very much:)

    Best regards,
    Linda

  19. Add cloud name to the instance metadata service

    I would like to have a way, from inside a VM to determine in which cloud the VM is running, AzurePublic, US Gov, China, etc. The instance metadata service currently exposes compute.location. It seems having the cloud name would be very useful.

    For example, the Python API, if given a cloud name, already knows the correct API endpoints to call for each cloud.
