  1. Send a User Agent when an Azure AD B2C custom policy calls a REST API.

    If a Web Application Firewall (WAF) is configured on an Azure Application Gateway, then a request from B2C will be blocked with an HTTP response of 403 because the request doesn't include a User-Agent header.

    A workaround is to disable the WAF rule, but it'd be nice to not need to disable WAF rules in order to use custom B2C policies.

  2. 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,…

  3. Application Insights - support for multiple environments

    It would be good if I didn't have to set up application insights for each of my environments, like local, dev, test, staging, production.

    I want all my telemetry for my application to go into one container, and I want Application Insights to be aware of the different environments so I can quickly filter between them when using the Portal.

    This could be extended down to Visual Studio, where I can already see my debug telemetry separately from production, but actually, this feature will give the developer even more control and insight into application code, as it passes through the…

  5. Add NSG Rule activity log alert alerts to portal

    Background: Currently, the only way to create a NSG rule activity log alert is through ARM templates. The documentation provided with the Unified Alerts public preview made it ambiguous that NSGs but NOT NSG rules were able to be created in the portal. Otherwise the new Unified Alerts is pretty awesome :)

    Proposed Action: 1) Create an option in the Alerts blade for NSG Rule alerts to be created. 2) Update documentation to be more explicit in differentiating NSGs/NSG rules in activity log alerts.

  6. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/?sdk=net old link

    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/?sdk=net

    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

  7. Allow increase to Diffie-Hellman key length in azure application gateway

    Per the feedback on this post (https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/b60a6c9b-5316-4299-b3e3-834870562827/ocsp-stapling-support-for-in-application-gateways?forum=WAVirtualMachinesVirtualNetwork&prof=required), application gateways have the Diffie-Hellman key length set to 1024. Current security standards recommend that be increased to 2048 at least. It would be nice if you could increase that or allow it to be configurable by users. Thanks!

  8. 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?

  9. Azure Policy - Add friendly / custom error messages for deny policies

    When someone tries to create a resource that is blocked by policy, they get an ugly JSON output that doesn't really provide any details as to why they failed validation. The best that they can get (if they find it) is the name of the policy or initiative. It would be much nicer to be able to enter and error description when defining the policies / initiatives and provide links to internal KB articles for how they should remedy the problem.

  11. Show ticket number in approval screen

    When requesting a PIM role, you are asked for a ticket number which is then displayed in the audit log. This ticket number should be displayed to the user who is approving the request so they can validate the request

  12. Easier Bug Reporting

    as it stands, I can only report bugs to you guys via a support ticket and only if I have a support plan.

    Lol. Don't make me laugh. I'm not paying you to report the things that are broken with YOUR service.

    One of the options under support ticket needs to be "bug report" and it needs to be freely available to all users.

    BUG: Schedulers error retry policy applies the recurrence policy logic meaning free schedulers can't be changed from the 4/30 sec to something like 4/2 min (also, the default is different than the documentation says it should…

  13. Allow app service diagnostic log settings to be sticky to Deployment Slots

    We just migrated from a classic cloud service to a website (app service). We set up a STAGING slot for deployment. Our need for diagnostic logs is only for our PRODUCTION slot, but it turns out that we MUST enable the same exact logging settings on our STAGING slot because otherwise when we do a swap the PRODUCTION slot ends up with no logging!

    This is counter-intuitive to us. We don't need the logs from STAGING 99.9% of the time.

    We would like a way to specify that the log settings are sticky to the PRODUCTION slot and don't change…

  14. Add option to completely delete Azure account

    Upon trying to delete my Azure account, I got the following reply:

    (...) as per design we will not be able to delete the complete account from Azure. We can cancel the subscription which will make the account empty but it cannot be completely deleted from Azure.

    When are you planning to implement this option? I have never encountered a website where it is not possible to unsubscribe.

    Cheers

  16. Consolidated Billing

    A couple of my customers have requested that they would like to receive a consolidated billing for multiple subscriptions. It would be great for us to have a billing construct feature available in the portal that allows the customer to point multiple subscriptions to the same billing ID.

  17. Increase turn around to action increasing the core limit

    After requiring a core limit increase that was preset because I needed to setup a free plan first then immediately upgrade it to PAYG, I was advised by support that it would take 24-48 hours to action the request.

    I needed it immediately, so was left with no other choice than to setup a machine on AWS where the soft account limits are more generous.

  18. Display Company Password Policy on Azure tenant "Change Password" Page

    As of now, when user is trying to change a password via Azure Password Reset https://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/ChangePassword.aspx

    The user gets a very generic message stating "This password does not meet the length, complexity, age, or history requirements of your corporate password policy.".

    We would like to be able to display our current password policy in the error message, like literally every other website/login page.

    Here is an example

    The password should be at least 9 characters long

    Password should meet below criteria
    1. Password must contain lower case letters
    2. Password must contain upper case letters
    3. Password must contain numerical

  19. OS selection screen when creating a new virtual machine in the Azure portal

    In the OS selection screen when creating a new virtual machine in the Azure portal, two identical notations are displayed side by side for each OS version.

    The investigation revealed that the top is a first generation virtual machine and the bottom is a second generation virtual machine.

    We need to make improvements so that we can immediately determine if a virtual machine is a first-generation virtual machine or a second-generation virtual machine.

    The actual screen is attached.
