  1. Block Azure subscription name change for EA Customers.

    In an enterprise environment where subscriptions are issued centrally and we try to maintain a consistent naming convention for the whole organisation, we would like to have a mechanism to prevent subscription name changes centrally. It could be through a centrally enforceable policy. Thanks

  2. Allow (AADDS) to authenticate access to storage account file shares for computer that is member of external domain or hybrid joined.

    Currently if company decided to replicate their local file share resources via Azure File Sync to Azure storage account and decide that they want to use same ACLs from NTFS there are two options.
    One is select Identity-based access for file shares and enable Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure AD DS) or integrate on premise Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS)
    If company decide to go with AADDS then device that want to map file from azure storage account as a drive and use NTFS/ACLs then is must be joined to AADDS and here we have a problem because…

  3. Active Directory VPN client for MAC

    There is not AAD VPN Client for MAC. The VPN Gateway functionately is through tenant identifier and token, in order to authenticate against AAD there is not current integration to add LDAP as part of this configuration.

    I am using OpenVPN but cannot use Azure Active Directory as authentication because there is no client for mac devices.

  5. More payment modes integration in India

    As of now, Azure only accepts credit cards in India for the fact that credit cards support recurring payments without having to handle with additional factor for authentication (OTP) on each transactions. Getting a credit card from the bank is not easy for someone who is just starting out, individual entrepreneurs or new startups. This credit card thing has locked me out and several other deserving entrepreneurs; from accessing Azure services, since I/we do not have a personal credit card nor my/our company(ies) and won't get one either. While other major cloud providers accept debit cards of select banks, it…

  6. Authenticator app to Sign into Azure Tenant needs some work

    It just doesn't really work? No notifications coming through, sometimes I can log in with an account other times I can't.

    Also I have changed devices but logged onto my account and this seems to be causing problems? But now I am fully locked out of the tenant account with no foreseeable way to get back in.

    So I think the fixed would be a lot more clarity on how it works or just for users to know why it doesn't work. Very confusing app/process.

  7. Allow PIM to be specific RG's or Resources in a subscription without multiple PIM Azure resource roles to get approval

    Would possible to be able to setup PIM for members of a group to a custom role, but only to the resources that the custom role is assigned to so that the users only have to request 1 PIM access instead of several.

    Currently, If I assign a role to a MGMT group, Subscription, Resource Group, or Resource, they show up as individual eligible roles for them to access.

    I have a group of devs that we created a subscription for them, but they don't need to get access to specific RG's, or resources (NSG's, Route Tables, etc..). So to…

  9. Display the number of rules in a Azure Firewall Policy clearly

    We know the limit is 10,000 rules per Firewall, however there does not seem to be a way to tell how many rules are actually in use.

    Yes the Portal shows the number of rules in each rule collection and you could add those all up, but that isn't sensible.

    Additionally, that is the number of rules that the customer has configured and according to Support, who checked with the Internal Team, not the true number of rules that count towards the limit.

    Based on the documentation and Support discussion, the FW considers a rule as the unique tuple of…

  10. Allow WAF to specify cipher list for connection to backend

    WAF cipher selection option in the portal is only meant for listener. Usage case example, DHE ciphers are stated to have known issue and are not supported for WAF listener. However, DHE cipher is being used when connecting to backend and occasionally causing 502 error. Due to the need for other connection, we cannot remove DHE (2048) support on the server. It will be good if we can specify WAF's cipher to connect to servers.

  11. Powershell

    We want to have PowerShell command which have any ways to revoke certificate for P2S VPN in Virtual WAN.
    For PS command:
    Add-AzVpnClientRevokedCertificate -VpnClientRevokedCertificateName <String> -VirtualNetworkGatewayName <String>
    -ResourceGroupName <String> -Thumbprint <String> [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
    [<CommonParameters>]

    We could not put the child gateway name such as: 2d70d7aa13284d6ca3cf4b1382f39511-southeastasia-gw

    It will shows [Resource not found], we have the needs that automate the revoke certificate process.

  14. Changing regions after erroneous error during signup

    Ajesh,

    Thank you for reaching out for sake of efficiency, I will post thins in my response and in the feedback. I signed up for an account and when I did the region was listed as Canada. I thought well, I will just fix that when I finish signing up. I never received a warning of are you sure or whatever else. This is my fault for not checking. I cannot add a card to use this account because I do not have a Canadian bank account or Address. I can understand that you have policies and procedures for a…

  15. Allow EA Consumption APIs to provide Mark up cost for Indirect EA Customers

    We have a Indirect EA account. Our partner adds up mark up to our services. we have seen a difference in cost on EA portal for Market place purchase send grid. the amount is different on EA portal and Azure portal.

    We have tried consumption and reporting APIs but both provide us with value which is on EA portal.

    https://consumption.azure.com/v3/enrollments/{enrollmentNumber}/billingPeriods/{billingPeriod}/marketplacecharges

    https://management.azure.com/providers/Microsoft.Billing/billingAccounts/XXXXXXX/providers/Microsoft.Consumption/marketplaces?api-version=2019-10-01

    Being part of EA enrollment both this APIs will call the back end and reach out to the EA portal and you will be seeing the values which are currently shown on EA portal.

    The real problem is we…

  17. Requesting a method to monitor API Key expiration by either notification or email

    When Enrollment Access Keys expire, access to be able to fetch billing data is lost. Please create a method to monitor these keys to ensure upkeep such as a notification in the portal and/or an email sent to the EA Administrators/Account Administrators. Missing renewal causes unnecessary delays in monitoring our billing data. I humbly request your consideration.

  18. Migrate/Transfer PAYG subscription to CSP

    Can you add a easy option to migrate/transfer a PAYG Azure Subscription to a CSP without perform a resource migration from the pay-as-you-go subscription to the CSP subscription?.

    Why?

    As you know, the "The Move Operation" method is not compatible with all resources and this becomes harder to do when the PAYG subscription contains many of those services that are very important and critical to the company, this kind of transfer/migration implies that the transfer/migration has to be planned since there will be downtimes on the workloads.

    I know that this could be easy when we talking about CSP to…

  19. Show detailed operating system in Virtual machine blade

    In the virtual machines blade the operating system column only displays linux or windows. If you click through you can usually see the detailed OS like "Linux (Ubuntu 18.04)". Show that detailed OS in the list view and make detailed OS searchable so I can find all my VM's with 'Ubuntu 18.04' or 'Windows Server 2016 Datacenter'
