    Pricing calculator - make calculating Reserved VM Instances & OS separately possible
    When choosing "1/3 year reserved" with Windows OS selected, the total price shows but "the e-year reserved VM" and "monthly paid OS" are all combined. It would be appreciated if the two can be shown as separated. (When customer orders Azure MC, they would like to know how much is paid at the point of reservation and how much is monthly fee)

  2. Select Authenticator in Password Self service without selecting one more option

    Thanks for adding Authenticator as option to Password Self service.
    It was much awaited option as our security team doesn't want to use SMS text.

    Issue now is that we can not enable that option without selecting one other option so we are in same situation now & can not roll out this to our 40000 users as we can not just lock it down to authenticator.

  4. CDN

    There needs to be a way to apply service tags to Azure CDN. When applying NSGs or firewall rules it would be beneficial to be able to use Service Tags to target the CDNs.

  5. support multiple values for the same key when tagging. If i want to allocate multiple departments while tagging i should be able to do that.

    Currently AzureRM tagging only supports one value for one key. This means if i want to tag multiple departments to one resource it is incapable of handling it.

  6. Add the "created by" and "created on" metadata to Azure objects

    It would be helpful for each object in Azure to have the account that created the object and the date/time of the creation imbedded in the metadata for the object. This would avoid the current method of having to get that information from the Activity Log and store it somewhere else that is more permanent.

  8. Azure SQL Data Sync - 500 tables limitation

    We are looking to use Azure SQL Data Sync as a solution to deliver our database to our customers. But we have 845 tables in our database which are dependent on each other with referential integrity.

    We are not able to split the tables into two groups with their dependencies.

    We have contacted Microsoft Support team and they confirmed that we need to have all the dependent tables in one group or change the PK / FK rules. It is difficult to change our data model considering many customers are using it for many years.

    Can you please consider to…

  9. Quota limit per Resource Group

    There is a quota limit only per the subscription but it would be helpful if you will give an option also to configure quota limit per resource group.

    Example, we have a single subscription with some quota limit but I created a resource group for developers and testing team.

    Developer's resource group should be 50 instances and Testing resource group should be 60 instances.

    The current feature is not having that option to control my resource group usages.

  11. Display notification that the pricing calculator does not include VAT, GST or other local taxes

    Might I suggest that a note be placed on the calculator that the price displayed is exclusive of local taxes (that should cover VAT, GST and any other sales tax...)

    I believe it is a legal requirement for businesses trading in Australia for 'ex GST' or similar if a price for a service does not include GST, or as a single value to be displayed in the case that goods and services provided are not exclusively provided to businesses.

    See https://www.accc.gov.au/business/pricing/displaying-prices

  12. Fetch Azure offer details to implement pricing calculator

    As a Tier 2 CSP Microsoft partner we want to implement Azure pricing calculator on our site to let our resellers calculate offers for their end customers.

    You offer Azure Rate Card which is very basic and limited. It doesn't provide any other options to calculate any resources based on different type, pricing tier, licence type, instance sizes and many other options.

    Some API should be provided to fetch detailed offers, meters and options to them, along with pricing, or there should be option to somehow embed pricing calculator on site with possibility to apply our own pricing.

  13. Add French Canadian as an Azure Company Branding option

    French Canadian is now a discrete language pack and language option in Windows 10 OOBE. Windows AutoPilot uses Azure Company Branding languages to determine what custom sign in page text to deliver to the user at the "Welcome to Contoso" Azure AD join page in OOBE. Yet Azure AD Company Branding is MISSING a French Canadian option. This is directly impacting AutoPilot which is displaying French Canadian custom sign in page text in English because of the missing language configuration. French Canadian has its own regional and grammatical differences from French. Windows 10 OOBE already handles the French Canadian differences,…

  14. Azure Free Test Tier Plan

    Everyone wants a free hosting. Well Amazon provides a free hosting for 1 year.

    Microsoft should too [but as a test server]

    1GB RAM, 10GB SSD but the instance will be working for only 12hrs / day
    User should be able to set his preferred time slot when the site should work. so, technically its not a web hosting but a test bed.

    IF a developer chooses to use a DotNet One Core application he should be getting a full free tier hosting for 24 months :) without time restriction

  16. MFA Block/unblock

    Create another Admin Role that allows the view of MFA users that are blocked/unblocked so in the case of the issue users getting themselves blocked for various issues, and only Global Admins can unblock (or wait out the 90 day period), other Admins (aside from Global Admins) can do so.

  18. LInux VM encryption available with more VM vendor types

    The encryption of Linux VM is sensitive to the Linux host being encrypted. For example, success with Ubuntu 16.04LTS; failure with CentOS 7.4 ("OS volume encryption is not supported on centos 7.4.1708").
    A solution is required to encrypt all Linux VM provisioned on Azure.

    The provided link above has a link for the web installer of azure powershell this installs azure powershell 5.7.0 which is misleading to customers as 6.4.0 is the most up to date version. link should be removed from the page to avoid customers downloading older version of the module

  20. allow the changing and addition of an account administrator in Azure in Open

    We cannot change the Administrator of an Azure in Open subscription or even rename the account to a customer friendly one.
    Being able to have only one Administrator of a subscription and then not being able to change that person(even through support!) is absolutely crazy - what if those credentials are lost/the person leaves and you need to urgently access the account?
