  1. Improvements to Azure pricing calculator

    Pricing spreadsheets are now deprecated, the new calculator is in "preview" but isn't really usable, especially for large models. I'm using the channel version https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/channel/

    Some suggestions:
    - allow use of "work" email addresses
    - if there are hard limits on items then make it simple to add multiples (e.g. if disk is only available up to max of 5000Gb then allow choosing a number of identical disks)
    - allow sharing of estimates with others OR allow import of exported estimates. Large deals will always have multiple people working collaboratively, the calculator simply does not allow this and suggesting exporting…

  2. Create More Learning Plans

    I really like the Learning Plans you have posted, and I'd like to see additional Learning Plans for the following topics:

    * Virtual Networks / Networking
    * Azure Active Directory - Operations
    * Storage

    Having these plans would really help those studying for the 70-533 and, of course, with understanding infrastructure topics for operations.

    I would be willing to contribute to these, but I do not see the Learning Plans anywhere on the GitHub repo.

  3. 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…

  5. 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…

  7. Allow Azure Active Directory Authentication to work in an Azure Web App when using the app_offline.htm file.

    When using Azure Active Directory Authentication with an Azure Web App the authentication no longer is implemented when using the app_offline.htm file. Please allow Azure Active Directory Authentication to work in an Azure Web App when using the app_offline.htm file.

  9. 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…

  10. Provide spot pricing option

    Spot pricing provides great cost benefits. I have been able to save a lot on Amazon with their spot pricing. I would love this feature on Azure as a competitive market place.

  11. Add capability to bridge the networking for nested VMs under Hyper-V

    Currently it is possible to use Nested VMs under Hyper-v. However, these VMs can only reach the outside network by being NATed through the hosts network. They are invisible from outside of the host. I would like for my nested VM to appear on the VNET so that they can be managed and reachable like the host networking.

  12. allow a way to use extensionattributes in Azure AD for cloud only users

    I would like a way to use custom attributes in Azure AD. We are cloud only and would like a way to take advantage of the available 15 extensionattributes to help us with user provisioning in other systems that require more information than the standard info for a user object in Azure.

  13. Fix web app and web app plan move

    The number of prerequisites and limitations in moving web app, app service plans and resource groups are staggering. I didn't want to delete and start again because these are production services with a large number of manual configurations (e.g. forced to use LetsEncrypt web job because you don't have it natively, but that's a separate issue!). Now I'm having to delete these and start again, standing up the new sites side-by-side and cutting over using DNS - what is the point of having these functionalities built in if they're not usable?

  15. New tier between shared and basic

    I think there should be a tier between shared and basic. The estimated 5x price increase from moving to basic seems pretty high for sites that have outgrown shared. Especially for sites with limited revenue like tech blogs.

    I am thinking the new tier could be available to small businesses or individuals.

  18. Add B2C applications through API

    Currently it's impossible to create applications programmatically so they appear under Azure AD B2C - Applications blade.

    It is only possible to create "App Registrations" through Graph and AD APIs.

    There are others asking about it such as:

  19. Display the Creator and Time of Creation prominently in the Azure page for any given entity

    We have many people working in our subscription and can not tell who deployed a VM (or anything else) without digging into audit logs and doing a manual search back through 90 day periods.

    Please prominently display the creator and time of creation on the main azure page for any given azure entity. Or show "owner" prominently.

  20. Have ADFS SP initiated sign-on also allow MFA proof-up

    Currently with ADFS 2016 and IdP initiated login you can use onload.js to intercept the error message generated when a user is not registered for MFA to provide a proof-up link for them to register. However, if it is an SP initiated login, this does not work. There is no error message presented to the browser to intercept. ADFS simply continues on and passes an invalid token to the SP which then fails authentication with no reason or error displayed by ADFS.

    The functionality for SP should mimic the functionality for IdP so this works for both initiators.
