  1. 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?

  2. Generally improve error handling in ARM deployments

    I've just experienced an issue where my deployment got stuck at the "Accepted" state for 45 minutes before I decided to cancel it. The actual cause of the hang remains a mystery, but I can make an educated guess. The resource that caused the hang (I know this because it was a linked deployment deploying only an sql server with a database) was deleted along with the resource group before I tried recreating it. Deleting this resoure probably takes more time than the Azure Portal gives the impression of (as it is with several resource types in Azure). So when…

  4. licensing

    We use Azure AD Group Based licensing and we would prefer not to have new service plans automatically enabled under the O365 E3 license. We have a "base license group" that has 2 service plans enabled (i.e. exchange and sharepoint) and we would prefer that when a new service is enabled it doesn't automatically get enabled for all our O365 E3 licensing groups as it defeats the purpose of having groups for specific service plans and licenses.

  5. Allow leaving an organization where the account is locked

    Currently, you can only leave an organization if you can login into that tenant. This is a big problem if your account is locked.

  6. 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

  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?

  10. Please allow German workshop organisers to use the Azure Fast Pass program for commercial usage.

    Please allow German workshop organisers to use the Azure Fast Pass program for commercial usage. Credit cards are rarely used in Germany, for cultural reasons, and it is a huge roadblock to run these workshops and to acquire potentially new Azure customers. It would be great if the workshop owner had the option to create Fast Pass codes, and use their own subscription as cost centre.

  11. Allow microsoft.directory/groups/hiddenMembers/read at the Administrative Unit

    If you create a Group with hidden membership and assign it to an Administrative Unit a "Groups administrator" for that AU cannot view the membership. Only the root directory Groups administrator role can view hidden membership.

    It would be good to allow the microsoft.directory/groups/hiddenMembers/read permission at the AU level.

    This would also make it match the documentation as that permission is assumed to be working at the AU level but it is not currently.

  12. Maintain the sort order in Azure Storage Explorer when clicking Refresh

    Maintain the sort in Azure Storage Explorer when clicking Refresh

    Quite often I want to look at the latest records in Table Storage, so I sort by the created date. If I then click refresh to get the latest data the sort resets and I have to apply the sort again, its driving me crazy

  13. New support experience

    The current support experience through the Azure Portal is far from user friendly. I can see that MS wants some sort of threshold for people to cross before posting support request, but the current experience is not the way to go. The fact that you have to pinpoint your issue down to the excact resource doesn't make any sense. What if my issue is with creating a resource, and that it fails with no error message before it has been created? A simple "other - se spesification" would be preferrable..

    Furthermore, once you get in contact with someone they seem…

  14. Microsoft WAF badBot rule 100200 is not able to differentiate between real spoofed vs Microsoft component IP

    Microsoft WAF badBot rule 100200 is not able to differentiate between real spoofed IP vs Microsoft system spoofed IPs. Since we are using CDN ahead of AFD(as it is not fully capable like Azure CDN now)There are genuine requests from Google Bot is getting blocked in Badbot rule as the requests are containing socket IP's as CDN PoP location lP's in the request along with client IP's. Hence Badbot rule detected it has spoofed requests. Since Azure CDN and AFD's are Microsoft supported products, either the rule should be able to differentiate the real spoofed IPs vs in their own…

  17. Additional options for downloading Universal Packages from Azure Artifacts

    Universal Packages are great for storing binaries and other files needed during deployments or other custom solutions.

    What's not good is that we're limited to the Azure CLI for both publishing and downloading these files. There is no other option or integration present.

    The only option for automatic downloads on a new environment is to
    - Download and Install/Update the Azure CLI
    - Install/Update the azure-devops Azure CLI plugin
    - wrap the "az artifacts universal download" command in a Powershell Script

    Not only does this take forever, but it spawn many processes, downloads dynamic "package downloader" tools, write to STDOUT…

  18. Add claim for ImmutableId to AAD Token

    When a user logs into AAD, there are fields for tenant id, client id, in_corp (optional), home, country, etc.

    For working with user contexts in our app, we rely heavily on the ImmutableId, but have to request that info through an external service. Ask here is to allow for including immutable id as an optional claim. The Graph API supports assigning Immutable Id and requires uniqueness for this field.

  19. Please show subscription ID in Recon file

    In Recon file, there is no subscription ID information in there.
    The subscription ID column is actually "Asset ID" which we are unable to find it in Azure portal and Partner Center. Please add subscription ID this information to Recon file.
