  1. Tracking BuiltIn Role Definitions

    Each and every built-in role has a specific definition at a specific time and it will gets changed as the new features are available. Does Microsoft logs these kind of activities under azure activity log if there is a change to the built in definition in the future? Or is there a place that we could subscribe it to get these changes?

    For building Custom role, we general copy a specific role definition that closely matches to on what we want to accomplish, from time to time, this built-in role definition will gets changed and all the custom roles that…

  2. 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…

  4. Make Service Tags JSON file links stable

    The Discover service tags by using downloadable JSON files links go to Microsoft.com download pages. These pages initiate downloads of files with a different name for every update.

    This is not useful for staying up-to-date with the service ranges. Either a human has to go click on the downloads, or some screen-scraping tactic needs to be used to get the actual file location.

    Better would be to link to a URL that always has the latest JSON file.

    The REST API is not a useful alternative, as "the Discovery API might return information that's less current than information returned by…

  6. 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…

  7. Global Router Solution for Billing-Sensitive API Use Cases

    We are looking for a Global Router Solution for Billing-Sensitive API Use Cases and we worked with multiple parts of Azure support (namely Front Door, Azure API Management or APIM, as well as Networking) to check whether our use case is supported.

    We found out, working with multiple support teams that such use case is not really supported right now and we were strongly encouraged to submit this idea as soon as possible on this feedback forum for potential review by the global community and the respective Microsoft teams. (Initially submitted on this forum, as of 7/21/2020)

    In current model…

  8. 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…

  9. Azure Sponsorship

    Please add spending limit for Azure Sponsorship, as it is not fair to the owner who has his/her PERSONAL credit card attached for a subscription that belongs to a corporate.

    Upon depletion of the credit, the subscription shall be disabled and the owner's credit card shall not be charged, until the spending limit explicitly removed by the owner. Otherwise, this is a BIG TRAP that will put the owner in huge credit card debt (if the resources deployed are expensive).

  11. sponsorship credits

    Currently, for accounts which have sponsorships, the billing admins and billing readers are unable to see the sponsorship credits. And the invoices are not shown with negative numbers indicating credits available, just shown as ZERO. Please either
    (a) allow billing admins and billing readers to view sponsorship credits available
    OR
    (b) generate invoices visible to the billing admins and billing readers which will reflect the number of credits available.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Eventhub consumer groups should be able to filter desired messages

    In order to have 2 streams, today, we need to create 2 eventhubs, each having its own data schema.

    It would be great if I could create just 1 eventhub with 2 consumers. Each consumer would filter the message that it would read by checking the message's properties.

    This would actually facilitate many other cenarios.

    when match -> get it

  17. 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.

  18. 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…
