  1. 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

  2. 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?

  3. 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. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Add the ability to move Reserved Instances to another subscription

    Currently there is no way to change the subscription on which a reserved instance order is charged (using monthly billing). It would be great if we can move a reserved instance to another subscription just like most of the other resources in Azure. This suggestion is not about the scope of an RI (shared or non-shared) but about the billing of the RI itself.

  10. Remove Invoice Section

    When you use Microsoft Customer Agreement, you need to create an invoice section that is mapped to the billing account and subscription.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to remove the invoice section after you have created it.

    The general idea, if we create something in the Azure, the customer should be able to remove it.

  11. 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.

  12. provide a shortcut for switching Directory

    There used to be the option on the Subscription pane in the azure portal to switch between directories.

    As an Azure support partner for multiple organizations this was very helpful for navigating across multiple estates easily.

    Recently this functionality was removed and put within a blade in the portal settings.

    I would like to see some level of similar functionality be returned to the portal, possibly under the user settings in the very top right.

    The Directories shown could just be ones that are favorite as to reduce the potential list of directories, with the main functionality still sitting within…

  13. 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…

  15. Create a full tenant factory reset option.

    Create an option to reset a tenant to factory defaults (365 configurations, Users, AAD, Intune, Business store, etc).

    Basically leave only tenant super admin, licenses and billing (Reset license assignments and configurations, but retain commercial information regarding trial days or purchases)

    This will help company's process of configuration and deployment by allowing to test all features and document useful or required settings then do a reset and configure for production.

  16. MFA NPS Extension - support for Vendor Specific Radius Attribute

    When attempting to use the MFA authentication options SMS, App Authentication Code, or Hardware Token MFA, the vendor specific radius attribute (26) is not returned from the radius server. This inhibits 3rd party integrations that depend on this attribute, preventing these MFA authentication methods from being used.

  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.
