  1. Allow templates to be filtered by IaaS or PaaS

    Not much else to say really - if I'm looking for templates to use for IaaS I'd like to hide all the PaaS related templates so I can find what I'm looking for quicker

  3. Add more export options for Microsoft Application Insights Dashboards

    Currently is only possible to export to Excel.
    It would be good to export to other formats like PDF, JPG, Email.

  5. allow delegation of basic administration of cloud users

    I have a lot of cloud only users in Azure AD, which are external parties that need access to SharePoint Online sites.

    If I could delegate the control of just those cloud users (ideally via group membership) to someone else, I could reduce the administrative burden.

    Doesn't need to write back to On Premise AD.

  7. Multiple Dashboard personalities / screens

    Where an account has multiple subscriptions associated it would be good to be able to have a customized dashboard per subscription. For example - My work (organisation account) is a co-admin for multiple customers. If I could split each customer in their own dashboard or create other custom dashboards say per resource ..

  9. Hive odbc driver pre-installed on cloud services

    The current Hive odbc driver pre-installed on azure cloud services is x32 whereas the iis sites are by default x64. This means that to use the odbc driver to connect to hive on azure cloud services, one needs to install the correct driver version (x64) via a startup task.
    This is more of a bug report than a feature suggestion, but that's what I've been asked to do (https://twitter.com/AzureSupport/status/677071404882370560)

  10. AWS to Azure - Help kit

    For all people coming from Rackspace, AWS or pretty much all cloud computing services, the interface and usability in Azure is really really bad. Somethings I have seen here seem to have been developed so make things easier and simpler, with all being done in the UI, but they dont. I would rather just have a more straight forward UI than Azures interface. As I know changing that can be a lot, at least I suggest you creating some tutorials about how can people do the same stuff they do on AWS in Azure. I have been trying…

  11. friendly link for customer to update payment information

    I am finding it somewhat difficult to have to schedule time with customers to have them set their payment information. It would be nice if we could sign up the customer and add the subscription. It would then be great to just send the customer a link that takes them directly to update the payment information. This way the customer only needs to login to the azure subscription (with the corresponding login) and fill out the payment information.

  12. We would like to pool MSDN accounts with Azure organization subscriptions. We have a lot of developers with MSDN that share a subscription.

    Our developers and engineers all have MSDN subscriptions and share a few Azure organization subscriptions. It would be ideal to be able to leverage the Azure credits from individual MSDN subscriptions against Azure org subscriptions.

  14. As of now, there is no feature that is available in Azure to receive alert if any co-admins, service admins ID’s gets deleted from the Azure

    As of now, there is no feature that is available in Azure to receive alert if any co-admins, service admins ID’s gets deleted from the Azure account. Hence, we would like to suggest enhancement to Azure team introduce a service wherein if any user ID role is removed from the account the main owner of the should receive an alert for the same.

  15. Don't use US specific date formats in the Event Viewer

    To me, and anyone not living in the US, "12/3/2015" reads like 12th of March 2015. Luckily, I know that it is supposed to mean 3rd of December 2015. Can't you please standardize on ISO8601 across the board instead of this peculiar non-international format? That is what you do everywhere else.

    And please get rid of the AM/PM **** as well. Annoying to anyone living outside North America.

  16. Maintenance notification for “Memory-preserving updates”

    “Memory-preserving updates” should be notified to users. Because this maintenance influences the Linux CentOS users. This notification make many azure users so happy.

  17. The website 'http://azure.microsoft.com/search/' needs to add the ability to search the Updates blog 'http://azure.microsoft.com/updates'.

    The website 'http://azure.microsoft.com/search/' needs to add the ability to search the Updates blog 'http://azure.microsoft.com/updates'.
    .
    We want to lean on the ACom Updates blog more heavily, as a solution to a documentation problem. But it is important that the Updates blog be made more search-able first.
    .
    The Updates blog webpage has filters, but lacks a standard free-form string search box. Ideally such a box would be added.
    But a possible solution would be to enhance the Search webpage to make it capable of search the Updates blog (filtering out the entire rest of the WWWeb…

  18. A simple way to figure out how to do common tasks on azure.

    When as a new developer I want to look into azure or any cloud service there is no easy way go figure out what I need. Like if I wanted to move my small web applications that runs on a lamp server what do I need to do.

    It should list what I want to do and then give some simple examples of what i need and how I can do it. It can also give me examples of how to change the application to take better advantage of azure.

  19. Provide alternative feature for entering ACL rules as CSV (Whitelist/Blacklist textbox)

    It would be great if instead of the text box system currently in place (or as a feature that could be switched to) the user could select to Whitelist + blacklist ips in a csv format.
    This would simplify applying the same rules multiple times; and separating white list from blacklist would reduce the number of key-entry errors resulting in a user accidentally making an endpoint available to 0.0.0.0/0 (all things)

  20. website "was this page helpful" sticky footer

    Documentation portal.
    super annoying sticky footer popup asking for feedback.
    1 it doesn't need to be so tall - it takes up quite a bit of space and its movement seems distracting
    2 if I close it or provide feedback, the page should remember that I provided feedback and not show again.
