  2. DocumentDB overview page view by database not collection

    The overview page used to be much easier to manage. The recent update has replaced the overview list of databases with a list of all collections.

    We have a number of databases with the same collections in all (different environments). The list is much harder to find which collection in what database we are looking for.

    Also a lot harder to get to query explorer. This has ruined the user experience.

  4. HDInsight is deceptive in charging on Pay-As-You-Go plan

    Pay-As-You-Go is not applicable for HDInsight Cluster. Wonder what other service falls under this deceptive practice. Whether this is a deceptive practice is up for debate.

    On Pay-As-You-Go plan, you get charged only when you use the service. And "use" refer to having an instance in "Running" status.
    Not so on HDInsight. The minute that HDInsight is created, it's always running, and thus billing charge begin to accrued immediately. There's no stopping of HDInsight. There's not even an indication that HDInsight is running from the Dashboard. A month later, the bill show up and 90%(thousands $$) of the amount is…

  5. CloudQueue.DeleteMessageAsync: Return bool for deleted or not

    CloudQueue.DeleteMessageAsync: Return bool for deleted or not

    Today the signature is public Task DeleteMessageAsync
    a public Task<bool> DeleteMessageAsync
    where the return is true for deletedOk, false for not deleted, like for instance List<T>.Remove would be good.

  7. fix broken link on compliance page

    on page https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/TrustCenter/Compliance/CCSL

    section: Letters of compliance and certification
    link to the certification letter is broken (aka.ms/azure-ASD-certification)

    why is this important: it is important to know exactly which services have been IRAP certified for planning & design.

  8. Have copy to clipboard icon next to URL in Function App overview page

    Azure Function App - Overview page.

    Having a "copy to clipboard" icon next to values such as URL would be helpful. Other resources have that feature.

  9. When you make a selection of two choices, it should be easier to determine which selection has been chosen

    When you make a selection of two choices, it should be easier to determine which selection has been chosen. In other words, if you don't know which selection you clicked, it should be more obvious than shading that selection. Maybe add an underline or button to show what was selected, rather than background color.

  11. Fix the SQL Database calculator (full calculator)

    It doesn't relate to the SQL Database pricing page at all. It quotes instance size A0-A9 where as the SQL pricing page talks about S0, S1, S2. I think the calculator is broken.

  12. Be able to add machines to an availability group.

    It would be nice to be able to move machines into an availability group without having to rebuild the instance. For example, a machine built as a POC which is migrated to production without rebuilding the entire machine.

  13. Support Java EE (EJB 3+) in Web App for Containers.

    Support Java EE (EJB 3+) in Web App for Containers. Apache TomEE plus supports EJB. Web App for containers supports Tomcat. If it could have TomEE as well, that would be great. Not sure if it supports already.

  14. Your alerts tend to hand from time to time. You should fix that.

    I experienced on multiple occasions that alerts became active and never became inactive despite the fact that the condition disappeared again.
    Having a situation like that makes an alert useless.

  15. Add the column name in the error in the Operational Logs for stream analytics jobs

    Right now errors in the operational logs for stream analytics will tell you, for example, that there was an error converting type Sys.Int32 to System.Double. However it does not tell you which column the error occurred on. Please add this, otherwise it becomes a long task of trial and error to figure out which column exactly.

  16. Your Microsoft Online Service bill is past due - don’t lose access!

    When the "Microsoft Online Services Team" sends an automated e-mail which states "Your Microsoft Online Service bill is past due - don’t lose access!" There should be a way to generate an azure ticket in case of dispute ( i.e. when the customer believe it has been paid and they are still receiving reminders) or there should be a reply option that should be looked into.

  17. Database re-provisioning failed with the exception 'Cannot insert an explicit value into a GENERATED ALWAYS column in table 'fs-csp-dev-db.d

    sync operation in Data Sync is failing with “GENERATED ALWAYS column” errors. Azure Data sync should sync these columns as well.

  19. Create more finger-grained RBAC to restrict users to add or remove specific roles.

    I would like to create custom roles within Azure AD that provide more finger-grained RBAC actions than the current custom role options provide.
    It would be great to be able to create custom roles to permit users to add and SPECIFIC remove roles to resources.

    Example 1: Create a custom role that permits a user to add the “DevTest Labs User” role to the Lab they manage.

    Example 2: Create a custom role that permits a user to add or remove only the “Contributor” role on a resource they manage, ensuring they are unable to remove owners or any other…

  20. Improve Cognitive Services OCR 2.0 performance to equal the OCR Demo

    OCR API 2.0 Sample Code is not as comprehensive, nor accurate as running the OCR Demo on the exact same image. (Tried many!)

    It is clear there are differences. The two return different dimensions (corners vs corner, width, height). No Cognitive Services documentation indicates what these differences are.

    I suggest the differences should be stated or, better yet, the Sample Code be upgraded to replicate the performance of the Demo.
