  1. Blob storage - Add a Backup & Restore feature

    Regarding the blob, geo-replication is very cool for the HA side, but it is not a backup.

    It would be nice to be able to backup a blob storage on another blob storage, to cover against an accidental deletion of the storage account via the portal, or from the code by an error of a programmer by the use SDK (call API) that does not control recursion (and delete calls).

    • Add nested resource groups

      I would like to have nested resource groups. A scenario in which this can be usefull is in DTAP. You can create a resource group for the application/service; and within that resourcegroup you could create resource groups for all the DTAP stages. For Example: A resourcegroup called "MyApp" with resourcegroups "Dev", "Test", "Production" in it.

      • Need for RBAC permission specialized for "Local Network Gateway".

        At the moment, we do not have a permission specialized for RBAC.

        As its background, we want to limit the amount of the permission which we assign to our user.
        Since there are too many permissions when we add "Microsoft.Network/*", our user needs a permission specialized for Local Network Gateway.

        We can set following permissions (Actions and NotActions) by setting up the NotActions listed below.
        However, in order to avoid unexpected permissions when a new feature is released, could you kindly add specialized Local Network Gateway permission?

        [Japanese]
        RBAC の権限として、ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化したものがありません。

        各ユーザーに対して、必要最小限の権限のみを与えたいと考えていますが、
        "Microsoft.Network/*" を付与する方法では付与される権限が多すぎるため
        ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化した権限を必要としています。

        以下のように NotActions…

        • please don't send me email about "Azure product announcements and updates"

          AzureTeam@e-mail.microsoft.com

          Azure product announcements and updates

          How can you unsubscribe from the Windows Azure Team emails? They don't have an unsubscribe link. Are they doing such a bad job that they don't want people to stop receiving their updates? It's 2017, how come you can't EASILY unsubscribe from a mailing list from this service?
          Has anyone figure it out?

          • Add HA feature to Public IP Standard LB

            Azure Standard LoadBalancers with Public IP in front can't have backend pools with HA loadbalancing rule configured !!
            We deployed NVA firewalls in the backend of Public IP ALB and everytime for inbound connection we have to change the config of ALB for adding new Port !!!

            HA should be an option there to send all Ports to backend so backend can take care of filtering in our model firewalls

            Thanks

                  • Add PowerShell commands to manage "Users flagged for risk" in Azure AD

                    I have quite a few users who have been tagged as "Users flagged for risk" in Azure AD. I'd like to be able to "Dismiss all events" for those users that were "Last updated" more than XX days ago. It seems I can only do this via the web GUI one user at a time. This stinks. This particular report had gone unwatched for a bit. PowerShell to the rescue please!

                    • Add manual and auto shutdown to Azure Container Service

                      Would be great to be able to shutdown all compute within an ACS cluster, both manually in the portal, and via an auto shutdown schedule. As it is currently you have to manually shut down the master VM and the VM Scale Sets.

                        • Clear mail address from a synchronized Security Group after deleting it in on-prem AD

                          Let's say you have a security group with email address, group@contoso.com, on AAD that is synchronized from on-prem AD.
                          Delete the email address in on-prem AD, and run a sync. The SG now has email address of group@contoso.onmicrosoft.com.
                          IMHO, the email address should be completely deleted from the SG on AAD too.
                          Thoughts?

                            • Use different Identy as Service Administrator when creating subscriptions automatically

                              We are using New-AzureRMSubscription to automatically create subscriptions. After creation we see that the Account Owner is made Service Administrator of each subscription that is created via this way.
                              There is a risk that, when the credentials of this account owner are confiscated, the attacker takes over control, as service administrator/ (service owner), of all the subscriptions.
                              This risk can be mitigated by having the possibility to assign a different identity as service administrator for each subscription created.
                              If we create such an subscription via the enterprise portal, we already have the possibility to assign a different identity as service…

                                  • Application gateway should have the capability to store certificate in Azure Key Vault

                                    Currently Application gateway does not store certificate in Azure Key Vault. We believe that Application gateway should have the capability to do that. This will give customer more control over their certificate than saving it in Microsofts encrypted storage.

                                      Would this work with Ceridian Dayforce to automate user provisioning, changes to role based access base on job title? We would like to automate the provisioning and changes to user account in AD based upon their job status, change title, manager, etc. in Ceridian Dayforce. Does this product integrate with Ceridian Dayforce?

                                      • SCOM Management Pack (December 2017) crashes when Datafactory is deployed

                                        Hello,
                                        We are trying to manage Azure alerts, performance and abaliability from SCOM 2016 with the "new" December 2017 Management pack. When a Data Factory is runing in the subscription the resource scan crashes with the error: One or more errors occurred. Object reference not set to an instance of object.
                                        Is there any thought about fix this?
                                        Regards,
                                        Eduard.

                                        • Azure Portal: Save or remember my sorting and/or grouping setting

                                          Working with the Azure Portal, my personal workflow is:
                                          1. Enter URL in browser: https://portal.azure.com/
                                          2. In my favorites on the left site I click on resource groups
                                          3. I choose one of my resource groups
                                          4. Inside the resource group grid view I click on type to sort my resources by type

                                          It would help me a lot and save plenty of time if I could save my sort option as standard view, so every time no matter from what browser or computer I open the resource group, my personal sort and/or grouping option is displayed. Thanks!
