  1. Your pricing calculator UI is a mess.

    I know you are trying but it really is terrible to use. Clicking links either doesn't take you anywhere or bounces you to another page away from the calculator. Simple terminology is not defined anywhere (ex. difference between "Basic" and "Standard" tier?) This really should be simple and easy to use but it is just confusing even for someone who knows what they are doing

  2. Show run time for finished experiment in Azure Machine Learning Studio

    In Azure Machine Learning Studio, when an experiment has finished running, why not also display the time taken to run? The running time is displayed while it is running, but then this info is lost when it finishes running.

  3. Provide a method for updating SPNs in AKS

    For AKS if you need to update the SP credentials you need to delete and recreate the cluster.

    SPNs expire and sometimes require the credentials to be reset for security reasons. If this occurs (az ad sp reset-credentials) deleting and recreating the cluster is the only option.

  6. Provide pricing calculator based on local HyperV image use

    Windows 10 client HyperV enables users to build images and work locally. What would be great is if it collected usage statistics that could be used to assess the cost of migrating a local image to Azure.

    You could imagine it accounting for disk sizes, network bandwidth usage for RDP sessions and being able to summarise that per month to give a suggested Azure template for the user.

    Currently I use local HyperV extensively; I would love to be able to share these images with others but I have no idea what the starting cost may be; this would give…

  7. Azure Policy - Add Ability to Use Parameters as an Accessor

    Please add the ability to use parameters in accessor expression. For example, right now you support "field" and "source". Would be great to be able to compare the value of a parameter to build more versatile policy definitions. This would allow us to pass in parameters (such as a true / false switch) which could then be used with an "allOf" to form a conditional check on something.

  9. Allow Linux VM to be available while OS or data disc encryption is in progress

    The encryption of a Linux VM results in a the host being unavailable for between 2 and 3 hours (for a 30GB OS disc on a VM with 2-4 CPU). A method of encrypting whilst the VM is available is required.

  10. Azure Pay and Go Subscription difficulties

    I had a difficulty signing up a new outlook account with pay & go subscription on Azure. It would NOT get past the telephone verification stage.
    Although a little slow in response time, the support engineer on the phone was very helpful. I managed to solve my case after following instructions in an email sent from the support engineer by using Internet explorer.

  11. Virtual Machines licensing FAQ site is missing Azure Hybrid Benefit information

    Hello, would it be possible to update https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/licensing-faq/ to represent the Azure Hybrid Benefit?

    Especially the matrix under the question "What are the other Microsoft Server workloads that are supported by Azure Virtual Machines today, and what are the licensing models?" needs some updates.

    Thanks.

  14. Allow patterns in FileTrigger Bindings

    I have recently had a problem where I wanted to monitor multiple directories but the FileTrigger only supports a single directory. Added to this I also needed to change the Queue the job was listeneing to based on our deployment pipeline. Without a pattern in the Binding I had to duplicate code for each different pattern we needed to support. I have created, currently, four methods for each directory we need to monitor. Allowing patterns in the binding would bring this in line with other triggers I have been using.

  15. Alert configuration per subscription

    There is a limit on the number of alerts configurable per subscription, which raises a need to increase it for large production subsctiptions.

    Would be good to have alert configurable per subscription, instead of per resource group. For example, for virtual machines state change alerts, would be good to have it configured subscription wide rather than per resource group.

  19. Please Allow the Removal of Old Bitlocker Keys from Azure AD

    According to the Microsoft Rep I spoke to, the only way to remove stale bitlocker recovery keys from devices within AzureAD is to remove the device itself.
