  1. Azure Firewall Allow Control of SNAT

    The Azure Firewall automatically performs a NAT for all non-private IP ranges. This can cause issues when public IP addresses are used internally (e.g. peering with service providers). When these IP addresses are routable on the internal network, it would be ideal not to perform a NAT for traffic to these destinations.

    Adding the ability to control the SNAT would be greatly beneficial in these situations.

  2. Allow Global Session Timeouts for Office 365

    I can appreciate the recent addition of a configurable session timeout for SharePoint Online, but there needs to be a way for admins to configure global timeouts for user sessions in Office 365. It is a requirement under NIST 800-171 guidelines that user sessions are timed out after a period of inactivity. For organizations that use Office 365 in the cloud, this is a problem as the supposed default timeout of 8 hours is not working properly. Testing with an unmanaged computer has shown that leaving a user logged into the "Home" page in Office 365 overnight does not trigger…

  3. using Cognitive Services Vision API, i want to be able to compare two images (gold and target ) and get back any anomalies found.

    This ability to compare two images would be invaluable on a manufacturing floor to find imperfections undetectable by the human.

  5. Publish an API for EA portal

    EA portal is super important management portal for enterprise companies. But as of now- there is no way to retrieve information about departments, create departments , create accounts or provision subscriptions.

    To integrate EA portal with internal systems- we need an API for EA portal

  6. Get-AzureRmVMSize should show additional capabilities, such as GPUs, support for Accelerated Networking, Premium Storage, etc.

    Currently it is not possible to determine from Powershell what capabilities a VM has.

    We can see MaxDataDiskCount, MemoryInMB, NumberOfCores, OSDiskSizeInMB and ResourceDiskSizeInMB, but that's it.

    It is impossible to filter the list of VMsizes on support for Accelerated Networking, GPU support or Premium Disk support.

  7. View subscription filter on a azure service bus topic subscription

    Hi,

    I use Azure Service Bus for my project. The UI is nice, could be nicer :). I have one feature addition request.
    Currently most of the details about a topic subscription like lock duration, delivery count etc. can be viewed - except the subscription filter. Can this be added to the UI?

  8. AAD B2C: Add support complex jwks senarios

    Please allow a method of either disabling the validation of the optional parameter x5t (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7517#section-4.8) or support the validation of more complex methods as defined (https://auth0.com/docs/jwks).

    Our company is currently attempting to interface a client's Auth0 application as an idp with our B2C directory (via OpenID) using a custom policy. The jwks signature that is defined is producing the following error:

    The jwk key can't be deserialized. Reason: 'The thumbprint in the keycontainer ‘NjVBRjY5MDlCMUIwNzU4RTA2QzZFMDQ4QzQ2MDAyQjVDNjk1RTM2Qg’ does not match the certificate thumbprint ‘65AF6909B1B0758E06C6E048C46002B5C695E36B’

    The solution that we have found was to short circuit the process and provide our…

  9. Provide Azure logo for MPN member

    I'd like to officially offer Azure's logo for MPN member.
    I confirmed the license of Azure's logo to introduce Azure on our website.
    I contacted the secretariat of MPN, but there was an answer that Azure's logo was not licensed. Currently, all partners using Azure's logo were replying that they violated the rules.
    This thinks that companies participating in MPN are problematic in advancing Azure's business.

  10. Azure Artifacts: Unpublished npm packages from public upstream (npmjs.org)

    We are using Azure Artifacts as an npm feed to store a npm package that we produce, along with cached upstream packages from npmjs.org. Public upstream has been configured per your documentation, and we have enabled retention policies on the feed with the default values.

    The problem we are facing is that public upstream packages are treated the same way as package we produce - if a package/version has not been consumed for a while it will be removed in accordance with the retention policies and later also removed from the Recycle Bin. After they have been removed, either to…

  14. The customer wanted to use both .Net and PHP in the application. The PHP application was running on PHP 5.6 and wanted to change it to PHP 7

    The customer wanted to use both .Net and PHP in the application. The PHP application was running on PHP 5.6 and wanted to change it to PHP 7.2.
    We understand that the PHP version remains same after you switch to the .Net stack. For example, if you choose Stack as PHP and version 7.2 even after switching application stack to .Net the PHP Version remains as PHP 7.2.
    However we feel this UI could be more better when you can configure multiple application stacks. If we have user friendly hinty note this helps in understanding that PHP application stack configuration…

  16. Allow connection to SFTP with user having different home folder than prohibited root folder

    We're trying to connect to an SFTP server, where the user is logged in and directed immediately to a subpath of the root. The root folder is restricted from access by the user. If we open the connection in filezilla, the connection immediately connects to the subdirectory path.

    Azure makes a connection to the SFTP, but fails when attempting to perform any actions within that server, as it first tries to hit the root folder.

    Azure should either adhere to the server telling the default directory, or allow configuration of a different default directory (probably more flexible).

  17. Azure SMTP access via Virtual Machines

    I understand that port 25 is closed to prevent spamming, however, a limited bandwidth of a 100Mb or so, would solve that issue. The reason I created these virtual machines were created was just for testing and development of DKIM so that when we upgrade our web servers, which will use Microsoft software, things will run smoothly. Indeed they have helped to some extent, but not the final part of emails leaving the machine. I find this disappointing because the purpose of the MSDN account is for research and development, which is being hindered by this blockage.

  19. Provide Reverse DNS (PTR records) for all Public IP Addresses

    Azure has thousands of public IP addresses which do not have PTR records. Consider adding a PTR record for all IP addresses Microsoft owns, whether or not it is allocated to a customer or service. When naming the PTR domain, consider following a naming convention that makes it easy to determine the region/datacenter it has been allocated to (e.g. US West vs US East vs Singapore), to which services it's been allocated (Yammer, SharePoint, Key Vault, Monitoring, SQL Server, OMS, HDI). This would allow firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and others to determine that an IP address belongs to…

  20. Update SSL Cert option for Application Gateway in Portal

    Please add an update ssl option into application gateway. This should be a mandatory feature since ssl certs are change frequently. The current process through powershell is too complicated for such a simple management task.
