  1. Allow tagging of "hidden" resources

    Currently, you can tag most types of resources using portal.azure.com, Powershell or any other tool for that matter. Tagging "hidden" type of resources (for example Microsoft.Network/networkWatchers) is hidden on the portal, but they can be tagged by using a Powershell script which for example tags every resource inside a resource group.

    This behaviour is inconsistent, because after this, listing tags on the portal show that the specific tag key:value pair is in use, but you won't see which resources use it. You need to rely on Get-AzureRmTag or other means to actually reveal which resources are tagged.

    As of currently,…

  2. EA: Managing subscriptions operations by multiple users, not by single account owner

    This is regarding Azure account & subscription management in Enterprise Agreement
    There is a scenario where the account owner is not available for considerable long time due to his/her sick/vacation leave or long biz trip for example, which cause subscriptions operations downtime.
    To avoid that, we should be able to have multiple users for such subscriptions operations.

  3. 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…

  4. Create RBAC role to buy VSTS extensions

    Create a restricted RBAC role in ARM so users with this role on an Azure resource group or on the subscription, can buy VSTS extensions without the current need to be Contributor on the subscription level.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Non-consumption marketplace services to show within the EA marketplace charges usage report

    The request is for non-consumption marketplace services to show within marketplace charges usage report.

    As some of the marketplace purchases are licensed based, there isn’t a sub ID that is shown anywhere on the EA portal as to which sub they are affiliated with.

    Other consumption based marketplace charges can be seen with a sub ID if the customer goes to EA > Reports > Download Usage > Monthly Report Download > Marketplace Charges.

    Please add license based marketplace services to the marketplace reports with the subscription IDs.

  8. Application Gateway service tag for IPs used to obtain backend health probe status in the portal.

    At this time in order for backend health probe status in the portal to work, we need to open port 65505-65034 on the app gw subnet to get a healthy status. Customers are not comfortable in opening these ports to the internet. We should create a Service Tag for source IPs in Azure that reaches out to the app gw to get this status. This would put the customer at ease and less reluctant on opening these ports.

  11. 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).

  12. Enable customer to request duplicate certificate from Azure Key Vault

    Right now, customer uses DigiCert’s management portal to request duplicate certificates: https://www.digicert.com/ssl-support/wildcard-san-names.htm#sans_help_me.

    It would be nice to if Azure Key Vault can help customer manage and auto update certificates to reduce manual work.

  13. Improve SSL Certificate Installs

    The process of updating your existing SSL certificates on an application gateway is overly complicated. Focus on making this a better user experience that doesn't require power shell and with clear instructions and documentation. Renewing SSL certificates isn't a task anyone wants to do and today's poor user experience is a detriment to the product.

  14. Allow easy Security filtering through admin Interface or powershell for all services (IP Filtering, GeoLocation filtering, Account Filtering

    We would like to have easy way from Service menu or Powershell, to filter access to service by IP, DomainName resolution, Mac Address etc...) instead of for example, manage it in the Web.cofig for Web App.

  17. 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?

  18. Add "Addtional Security Verification" page to Conditional Access

    We need to add "Additonal Security Verification", which shows up for MFA enabled user to configure MFA setting, to the list of Cloud Apps in Conditional Access so that they can block access to the page for specific users or non admin users.

    I have some customers whose admins configure MFA settings such as mobile phones and the method for their users manually, and do not want the users to change the settings, such as mobile phone number.

  19. Add support for X.509 authentication

    Add support for X.509 authentication. Allow me to configure which CAs to honor (allow me to honor just my own CAs). Allow me to associate X.509 certificates to Azure user accounts. This would enable authentication improvements for at least 2 use cases:
    - Higher level of assurance (X.509 on smart cards) for authentication to Azure Portal (e.g., Global Administrator needs stronger authentication options than currently available).
    - Mobile user authentication - certificates on mobile devices would be able to be used for authentication.

  20. 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…
