  1. Sort Virtual Machines in DevTest Labs by Name

    In DevTest Labs, when viewing VMs, you cannot sort by the name and they are NOT in alphabetical order so it is a pain to scroll through the list.

  2. Show pricing warnings for expensive plans

    I accidentally enabled the DDOS protection plan, now I have accumulated over 600 EUR just for a few days until I recognized that the costs went beyond any limit in the development account.

    There is no warning or anything. Although I checked the pricing page, I just recognized the pricing per GB in the table, not the small printed base price of 2484 EUR p.m.

    There should be a warning message for expensive plans and the possibility for large clients to disable the warnings. I'm very disappointed that such a thing could happen at all.

  3. Support 'Approved Client Apps' condition for CA on MacOS devices.

    Support 'Approved Client Apps' condition for CA on MacOS devices.

    Since MacOS Mail app has started ot support modern Auth in MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) it is no longer possible to block that app from accessing exchange online without also blocking Outlook on the platform too.

    The ask is to be able to block the Mac Mail client app on Mojave but NOT Outlook and the obvious resolution is to extend support for the 'Approved Client App' condition that currently only supports iOS and Android, though another resolution would be equally welcome if the outcome is the same.

  4. While creating DB server, "This location is not available for subscriptions"

    I've tried to create Azure SQL database server but, while I'm setting the detail of server for location, it keep saying that "This location is NOT available for subscriptions". I tried every location, but NONE of them worked. How should I fix this issue?
    FYI, My subscription is only Azure for Students and I don't have any databse server on my account. I am a brand new user.

  5. Add ability to virus scan a stream

    Azure must offer the ability to virus scan a stream. Not a file. Due to corporate security requirements, files cannot be saved without being encrypted.

  6. Please foresee export and import capabilities for the Azure pricing calculator

    Azure price calculation is crucial in planning and estimating projects. But it's also very important to be able to export pricing calculation, so that we can adjust it later on (when architecture / sizing changes).
    Please foresee something like that.

    (BTW: I really like the price calculator usability now !)

  8. Custom Vision AI - Get the Images IDs that are not trained

    In Custom Vision API, at this time it's not possible to query just for the images that haven't been used in training.

    This feature would be nice because sometimes if we upload some images and our metrics (precision and recall) for a new iteration are lower then the previous iteration we can delete the iteration and those images ids... but what if there are any deletion errors? We can't retrain a new iteration with those 'wrong' images.

    Getting the ids for images that are not trained would be really helpful.

  9. Release known bug information and its ETA.

    We encounter some trouble, we need to troubleshoot for the issue and it is time consuming.
    If MS releases known bug information, we don't need to troubleshoot for it.

  10. "Azure Services by Region" Chart needs to be printer-friendly

    "Azure Services by Region" is a useful chart (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/regions/#services) and I'd like to print it out and pin it on my wall for reference.

    Unfortunately, it is NOT printer-friendly on IE/Edge or Chrome browser. Please fix ASAP!

  11. Issues with pricing with Azure portal and Rate Card API

    We can see that there are issues with pricing with Azure portal and Rate Card API and we have following things to be worked on:


    1. When is MS Azure planning to release (GA) Rate Card APIs?

    2. Why is there a difference between Portal pricing and Rate Card pricing? The concern here is that Azure portal shows the price for all the services/regions whereas, for some services/regions we don't see price details in Rate Card API - For example - For Redis cache, pricing is shown for all the regions in the portal but with Azure APIs, it does not show…

  13. Add option to whitelist more than 5 IP addresses or add a subnet when using NFS shares on the Azure Data Box

    Currently the Azure Data Box can only allow 5 IP addresses to connect to NFS shares on the Data Box. Backup cluster devices larger than 5 nodes cannot write to the Azure Data Box. If the Azure data box could allow more IP's to whitelist or to whitelist a subnet, backups or archive jobs would complete successfully. This is highly desired and a big limitation of our use case with Cohesity backup appliance.

  14. Don't lock accounts into a region until they actually enter valid billing information

    For some reason my account is locked to Canada. I'm a US citizen and can happily prove it. I literally CANNOT add billing information because I DO NOT HAVE a Canadian credit card with a Canadian zip code (the billing info is locked to Canada provinces and zip codes). I contacted support and they said this can't be changed. I haven't subscribed to anything yet nor have I ever been billed for anything. Further, on the Microsoft side of things my account is a US account with US address, etc. Why in the world is my account even allowed to…

  15. Sign-In Risk Policy > MFA > Add an Exclude App and a way to mark and IP safe for unfamiliar locations

    We are having issues with our Sign-In Risk Policy set to Low to action MFA. If our location switches egressing IP addresses, the entire location and users within that location are hit with a low risk for unfamiliar location.

    We do not have the ability to mark an IP safe within this policy, or to exclude a specific app from this policy. Can we have a feature request to add an app exclusion within the Sign-In Risk Policy and the ability to add IP addresses within the unfamiliar locations to be marked as safe to stop MFA triggering on our…

  16. Fine granular Azure Security Center pricing option

    Hi,

    can you please add the possibility for fine granular pricing selection in Azure Security Center.
    At the moment, it's only possible to activate the standard pricing model for resource types (like Azure Sotrage Account, Azure VM,..) and not fine granular. In some customer scenarios, I came into the situation, that only some resources in a subscription need a higher security level.

    I know, I can split it to different subscriptions, but it's sometimes not useful.

    Regards,
    Hannes

  17. Give us a simple way to detect if our code is running in Azure

    What I'd like to see is a single really simple way to detect whether my code is running inside our outside Azure.

    I'd like this to work regardless of whether the code is running as a worker role, web site, web service or on an Azure VM, etc.

    I'd also like that method to have no dependencies on the Azure SDK, or at least no dependencies on any dll/class library that can't be copied locally and deployed with the application (as it will need to be deployed if we're running it outside Azure).

  20. Provide Anonymous RateCard API

    Provide a way to call the RateCard API without credentials. This would provide pricing similar to what is provided to anonymous users via https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/ .

    Primarily this would be useful for users interested in writing setup-free scripts to pull pricing, or who wanted to provide such scripts to non-technical users without provisioning authentication tokens for those users. Admittedly this is useless to users with any sort of private pricing.
