  1. Add Captcha/Challenge to web application firewall

    We'd love to use WAF, but it is missing a captcha/challenge mechanism.

    e.g. after X amount of attempts - put a recaptcha image or "I am not a robot" checkbox type functionality

    Ideally this threshold would have some advanced settings or configuration - based on throughput or anaylitics of traffic.

    we currently use cloudflare, and this is holding us back from switching. some appliances (e.g. barracuda WAF) include it - but they are quite pricey to deploy within Azure compared to WAF.

  2. Make Disk Encryption Easy

    In AWS, when I want to create a VM that is encrypted, I create a key store and then when I create the AMI I can create a copy of it and tick the encrypted option. It is very easy indeed and I can go from nothing to an encrypted machine in about 20 minutes.

    In Azure, I have to create a vault, create a key encryption key, create an application, allow the application access to the key vault, make a note in excel of about 28736 parameters, try to create the VM, work out why it failed, try to…

  3. alter how Administrative Units manage groups and their members

    Administrative Units allow for users and groups to be added to the AU, and then RBAC roles to be assigned to users for that AU specifically. We tested this recently only to learn that in order for a Helpdesk Admin to reset a user's password, that user has to be added independently of the groups. For example, if John Doe is a member of group Sales, and the Sales group is added to the AU, a Helpdesk Admin for that group would not be able to reset John Doe's password. Only if John Doe is also added as a user…

  4. Allow Sticky tab Switching in Microsoft Teams

    When switching back and forth from the "Chat" tab to the "Teams" tab in Microsoft Teams, your place in the "Teams" tab is lost and you have to browser to whatever Wiki/file/etc. you were looking at before.

    It would be nice if switching back-and-forth between Teams tabs picked up where you left off.

  5. D365 CRM Connector Should have a Standard Method for Handling Special Characters

    The Dynamics 365 CRM connector experiences a 502 bad gateway error when text strings contain special characters such as (*, ", /, \, %, #). There should be a standard method for allowing these characters rather than having the connector fail.

    I use the replace function to remove the characters and it works, but these characters are important to the text strings as they provide context to the actual text values.

    There should be a standard way to wrap special characters so that they are accepted and do not cause the 502 bad gateway error.

  6. 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.

  7. Tracking BuiltIn Role Definitions

    Each and every built-in role has a specific definition at a specific time and it will gets changed as the new features are available. Does Microsoft logs these kind of activities under azure activity log if there is a change to the built in definition in the future? Or is there a place that we could subscribe it to get these changes?

    For building Custom role, we general copy a specific role definition that closely matches to on what we want to accomplish, from time to time, this built-in role definition will gets changed and all the custom roles that…

  8. Azure Sponsorship

    Please add spending limit for Azure Sponsorship, as it is not fair to the owner who has his/her PERSONAL credit card attached for a subscription that belongs to a corporate.

    Upon depletion of the credit, the subscription shall be disabled and the owner's credit card shall not be charged, until the spending limit explicitly removed by the owner. Otherwise, this is a BIG TRAP that will put the owner in huge credit card debt (if the resources deployed are expensive).

  9. budget

    Have Azure Budget notifications/alert email for Resource Group and subscription give a estimation or forecast on current consumption on when the Budget will actually be reached to help give users a good idea on when the budget will be met - especially if it is before the months end.

  12. Group Based Licensing

    Group Based Licensing - While this feature is currently in preview, it seems that once a user receives a license for an specific product within an E3 by being member of a security group, no other product licenses within that E3 can be modified manually. This is not the case if the user had a "Direct" License assigned manually previously.

  13. Create a full tenant factory reset option.

    Create an option to reset a tenant to factory defaults (365 configurations, Users, AAD, Intune, Business store, etc).

    Basically leave only tenant super admin, licenses and billing (Reset license assignments and configurations, but retain commercial information regarding trial days or purchases)

    This will help company's process of configuration and deployment by allowing to test all features and document useful or required settings then do a reset and configure for production.

  15. Allow customisation of RADIUS access challenge reply message content for Azure MFA NPS extension

    Currently RADIUS access challenge reply message content is set in the code of the NPS extension.

    We'd like the ability to customise the reply message for challenge based authentication methods ( e.g. SMS, mobile app verification code etc ).

    For example when using mobile app verification code method, the RADIUS access challenge reply message is 'Enter Your Microsoft verification code'.

    We'd like the ability to override, this, for branding consistency / ease of use reasons.

    As the VPN appliance will take the reply message content and display it to the user as is, we'd like this control.

  17. Support Azure CLI for Container instance when using MSI

    The current set up allows the container instance to get an Access token using MSI. for further Authentication steps to use the access token with container and Blob storage we need to use either .Net or node.js application. We do not have an App assigned to the container service and would love the have the same function performed using Azure CLI or PowerShell.

  20. Display current setting for HTTP/HTTPS backend port instead of default port (80/443) when changing the http setting of Application Gateway

    When we changing the application gateway HTTP setting, the backend port always display as the default port for HTTP and HTTPS (80 and 443), even if we have used another custom port for HTTP or HTTPS.

    Sometimes, I only want to change another setting for HTTP setting such as the timeout value, without changing the backend port. But this default display for HTTP/HTTPS port easy to mislead me into changing the custom port accidentally.
