  1. 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.

  2. Allow programmatic import of PBIX to Azure Analysis

    Just that, import via web interface is great but only once. To allow modeling to continue in PowerBI Desktop, it'd be sweet to have a powershell method to import that file.

  3. Azure Intranet Facing Multi Region Load Balancer/Traffic Manager

    There is not such a way to redirect the internal requests between different regions.
    Scenario Highly available ADFS deployment as showed below
    • 2 internal ADFS servers each one located on a different region (1st in Azure North Central US and the 2nd in Azure West Europe).
    • 2 WAP servers with NSG each one located on a different region (1st in Azure North Central US and the 2nd in Azure West Europe).
    • 1 external traffic manager located in the Azure East US.

    The missing item to this deployment is the internal traffic manager where it is not supported…

  4. Add the ability to write a tag in the Azure Subscription to avoid confusions

    Sometimes the Azure administrators have to work with a lot of subscriptions.
    The problem here is to work with the Subscription Id.
    When you use a very few amount of subscriptions is not a problem, but it could be a problem when you are using a lot of subscriptions.
    Is very easy to be working with the wrong Azure subscription when you manage a lot of Azure Subscriptions.
    The subscription id could be confusing sometimes in some situations.
    To avoid this, my suggestion is to have an additional tag in the Subscription (this tag should not be mandatory, only for…

  7. 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 !)

  9. Auto Shutdown Virtual Machine based on last known timezone

    Auto Shutdown Virtual machines is know based on the original created timezone time.

    But when you travel like for instance the current MVP Summit. You are not in the same timezone.
    Maybe you can check the last timezone somebody login in. And use that timezone for the auto shutdown...

  10. Support CORS Storage with ARM Templates

    I can add CORS rules for Storage Accounts using the Portal GUI or the CLI: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cli/azure/storage/cors?view=azure-cli-latest

    However, there does not appear to be any ARM support. Please can you add this?

  11. 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.

  12. "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!

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ll use it in our next planning cycle around this page.

  13. Add print button to documentation

    At this point, Print Preview of the page has parts of the header text overlaying the document. In order to print, one need to select the page text (without the headings) and print selected text only.

    A print button would certainly be nice.

  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. Ability to Specify Tags when deploying through Portal

    Currently, there is no way to add tags to a resource when creating resources via the UI. This prevents us from deploying a Policy that requires certain tags. In order to do this, everything would have to be deployed via API or ARM template

  16. 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. Improve Azure Scheduler to handle many schedules to a single job.

    Here is a real situation that is not well covered by the current Azure Scheduler.

    I am writing an application that deals with weekly selective lotteries (lotteries where you select n number from m). Typically the draw of this type lottery happen once or twice a week. My application monitors absolutely all the existing lotteries in a given country. It will cover the countries of US and Canada initially. The type of lottery I am talking about is managed at the state level (province level in Canada). The US has 50 states and Canada has 10 province. Each state or…

    Thank you for your feedback. A Scheduler job is defined as an Action with a scheduled recurrence. If you want an action to fire at multiple different schedules then you would need multiple jobs. That being said, it is possible to create a complex schedule on a job that may satisfy your needs. For example, if you have a lottery drawing that occurs twice a week on Monday and Friday at 10:00pm you can create a single complex schedule that would fire at those times.
    Also note that you can create up to 500 Standard jobs before exceeding a single Standard unit cost of $13.99.

    Thanks,
    Kevin
