  2. Load balancer weight setting for backend nodes in a pool

    Add the option to set “weight” to load balancer backend nodes in a backendpool. This enables the usage of active/passive virtual network appliances without the usage of route table adjustment scripts etc....

  3. aks+security

    Currently AKS managed master is connecting to its nodes over internet. This will not work in case of private networks with internet connectivity disabled.

    Since both the AKS managed master and nodes belong to the same data center (I assume), the connectivity between the AKS managed master and its nodes should happen over Azure managed infrastructure and avoid the internet all together.

  5. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. LUIS API - ability to remove all utterances for particular intent.

    Our dev team is using LUIS API to generate utterances from database.

    Ofter we find issues in our utterances and we need to remove all utterances and re-generate them again. To delete utterances we're using this API: https://westus.dev.cognitive.microsoft.com/docs/services/5890b47c39e2bb17b84a55ff/operations/5890b47c39e2bb052c5b9c0b

    if we have 2000 utterances in one intent, we need to make 2000 requests to LUIS API. we would like to remove all utterances in one API call. Or at least remove them by chunks, 100 utterances at a time. This will speed up our process.

    Please add utterance batch delete API.

  9. Delete multiple containers at once Azure Storage Explorer

    Currently, you can only delete one container at a time from Azure Storage Explorer. Being able to delete more than one would be very valuable when handling storage management.

  10. 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…

  12. portal idle session timeout

    currently we could set portal idle session timeout for single service admin, but we couldn't configure centralized setting to control idle timeout for all the service admins. Could we have this feature?

  13. 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.

  15. single invoice

    just like amazon aws it would be good to have single invoice for all subscriptions.

    its cumbersome for accounts department to handle multiple bills
    single monthly invoice
    subscription wise break-up
    resource wise break-up would be good

    moving from aws to azure itself a humongous learning curve
    now, multiple billing is another burden

  16. Need more detailed level of firewall rule option to allow access from Azure Insight resources such as ADF,SA etc.

    Azure SQL Database is a major output resource for Data Factory(ADF) and Stream Analytics(SA), but these PaaS applications do not have a static IP address.
    Therefore making it impossible to setup a robust Firewall configuration.
    We understand that [Allow access to Azure services] is designed to handle this sort of situations, but it is way too loose from security point of view, since it allows access from all the resources on Azure including those are NOT owned by the users.
    which is a risk and to achieve more secured environment, many customers demand for a more detailed firewall option, which…

  17. Enable configuration of password policy on minimum and maximum characters for the cloud user account's passwords

    Azure AD has some password policies regarding restrictions and below are some of the defaults: reference https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/concept-sspr-policy
    1. A minimum of 8 characters and a maximum of 16 characters.

    c. Numbers (0-9).
    d. Symbols @ # $ % ^ & * - _ ! + = [ ] { } | \ : ‘ , . ? / ` ~ “ ( ) ;

  18. 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…

  19. Create RBAC role to buy VSTS extensions

  20. 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.
