  1. Allow assign Azure policies on all subscription under EA portal

    Now policies can be assigned on a subscription/resource group/resources level.

    • Update Azure Ibiza framework to support Visual Studio 2017

      Some newer Azure servicesSDKs started to (only) support .net standard 2.0 in latest releases, and for projects currently using .net framework, it requires using Visual Studio 2017 to be compatible with.
      It has been a whole year since VS 2017 came out, and we really like to get on it to use its latest and coolest features, and most importantly being able to use some newer Azure Service SDKs, but with our dependency on Ibiza framework which currently only support VS 2015,
      none of the above could be achieved.
      It would be really great if Ibiza team would like to…

      • Add capability for bulk deletion of blobs

        Right now, deletion of a container is the only way a number of blobs can be deleted together. The drawback, however, is that the container name cannot be used again for some time. This causes inconvenience for a number of use cases.

        Proposal: There should at least be way for emptying the container in one API call

          • Bulk b2b invite in the New portal as now this feature is available in the old classic portal using the CSV file.

            As of now I don't see the Bulk B2b invites possible in the New Azure portal, where as in the old Classic portal it is there using the .csv file, we have moved to new portal since there are restricted permission model available, but we are missing the great future missing bulk b2b upload, so it would be very appreciate ful if you provide that feature.

            • Reserve for ExpressRoute bandwidth

              If circuit bandwidth upgrading is fail, I must delete and recreate circuit.

              It's very high impact for my enviroment because of circuit network will stop.
              I request we can know that circuit upgrade will fail or will success in advance.

              ex)
              1. We can reserve bandwidth in advance. If we don't use that bandwidth, we can release it. It's also possilbe for a fee.
              2. We can get realtime capacity. It will not be ensure but I want to know possibility for success upgrading bandwidth in advance.

              • Group Based Licensing

                Group Based Licensing - While this feature is currently in preview, it seems that once a user receives a license for an specific product within an E3 by being member of a security group, no other product licenses within that E3 can be modified manually. This is not the case if the user had a "Direct" License assigned manually previously.

                • Allow deletion of VM disks for disabled subscriptions

                  I created a large and expensive VM disk for a pre-paid testing subscription. After a few days, the subscription ran out of credits due to the increased costs. Now that the subscription is disabled, there is no way to detach the disk from the VM, leaving me with no way of deleting the disk before paying.

                  • Add PowerShell commands to manage "Users flagged for risk" in Azure AD

                    I have quite a few users who have been tagged as "Users flagged for risk" in Azure AD. I'd like to be able to "Dismiss all events" for those users that were "Last updated" more than XX days ago. It seems I can only do this via the web GUI one user at a time. This stinks. This particular report had gone unwatched for a bit. PowerShell to the rescue please!

                    • Make Disk Encryption Easy

                      In AWS, when I want to create a VM that is encrypted, I create a key store and then when I create the AMI I can create a copy of it and tick the encrypted option. It is very easy indeed and I can go from nothing to an encrypted machine in about 20 minutes.

                      In Azure, I have to create a vault, create a key encryption key, create an application, allow the application access to the key vault, make a note in excel of about 28736 parameters, try to create the VM, work out why it failed, try to…

                      • Allow changing the Service Principal associated with AKS

                        Currently it's impossible to change the Service Principal associated with Azure Kubernetes Service.
                        You might want to change the service principal if you're doing big changes in your Azure AD or moving your Azure Subscription to another directory.

                              • [REQUEST] Ability to delete one of deployments in a resource group more easily by one simple Azure CLI command.

                                We can create a deployment by using "azure group deployment create" command with a json template exported from Azure Portal. On the other hand, there is no Azure CLI command to delete one of deployments and linked resources (such as NIC, Public IP, OS Disk...) in a resource group at the same time.

                                Please enable us to delete it by one simple Azure CLI command with a json template for resources we try to delete.

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

                                    • Better way to take the vm golden images

                                      The procedure to take vm golden image and spin up new instances using the same image is a very lengthy procedure and requires technical guys to mess up with the azure templates and do it.

                                      This task however can be delegated to less technical people (who knows how to operate a software ) to simply take images using gui and spinning up a new virtual machine/s using the same golden image.

                                      • Allow the currency on the billing to be changeable.

                                        Azure currently do not allow the billing currency to be changed. The claim is that the terms and conditions are tied to the currency of the country selected.
                                        Also, the payment of a bill is tied to having a credit card in the currency of the country you started with.

                                        If a company changes it's country this means Azure want you to setup a new account and migrate all services to the new account.

                                        This requires planning time, costs and risk (of bad planning).

                                        AWS allow the currency to be changed from a drop down menu.

                                        It is a high…
