  1. 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.

      • 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…

        • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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?

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                            • 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!

                                  The idea is to integrate these two. When something happens in monitor it should reflect the health state in Azure Resource Health as well

                                  This is especially interesting when youre integrating with third party tools or develop something from scratch, you can have one API endpoint etc to show health state

                                    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.

                                    • 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.

                                        • Open-source Azure Storage Explorer

                                          Providing a github repo for Azure Storage Explorer would make it cheaper for Microsoft to develop this product, enhance it's quality and features, and let the community develop a browser-based version of the electron app.
