  1. Application Insights in Australia

    Please add application insights in the Australian region. Due to privacy laws we cannot export any data outside Australia and thus the Application Insights are not allowed to leave Australia.

    It would be great if those could be added!

    • Change geographical region for a given resource

      A while back, you did not have a data centre in the UK, so I deployed all my resources to the North Europe region as that was the nearest. Now you do have a UK region, but all my resources are in the North Europe data centre. To migrate everything closer to home, is a real pain in the back side at the moment. Please provide an easy way to migrate across data centres difference resources such as Web Apps, Databases, Storage containers, etc.

      • Increase the ARM default Core Quota per region

        [ENG] Please increase the default limit for VMs/Cores in Azure Resource Manager.

        The current ARM default Core/VM limit per region for an Azure in Open and even some Pay-As-You-Go subscriptions is only 10-20. This is not enough at all to deploy a few VMs, and it prevents customers from expanding their service towards rapid business growth and urgent requirement. More flexibility and convenience should be provided as default.

        [Japanese] Azure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値引き上げ依頼

        Azure in Open や従量課金プランのサブスクリプションについて、現在のAzure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値は、10 から 20 程度です。
        この既定上限値では、十分な仮想マシンを作成することができず、お客様の大切なビジネスの急成長や必要性に対応することができません。
        既定上限値が緩和され、柔軟に便利に利用できるよう改善よろしくお願いいたします。

        • Hibernate/pause a resource group or subscription

          After talking to one of your Senior Support Engineers, they suggested I made a feature request for this.

          I'd like to be able to pause, hibernate or otherwise stop a resource group or subscription so that it incurs minimal costs when not in use. I'm suggesting resource group or subscription as one may be easier to implement than the other. Ideally this would be done through ARM but I’d settle for doing it via PowerShell if needed.

          I appreciate that VMs can be deallocated but we found that a customer's solution was still using approximately £200 a month due to…

          • Recovery Services Azure to Azure between different regions

            Hello ! At this moment we can fail over in "Azure to Azure" model only between region's locations. For example if source resource group is located in West Europe we cannot use USA as a target location. Six months ago or more there was a disaster fail of a whole region - unfortunately, I don't remember what was it. However, you will find this event in Azure event logs on the portal. I kindly ask Azure backend team - would you be so kind modify "Azure to Azure" mode and include different regions for target and resource groups please ?…

              • E-mail notifications for "Impossible travel to atypical locations" reporting

                E-mail notifications for "Impossible travel to atypical locations" reporting. Presently admins need to watch this portal screen all day/night to see if there are new entries. It would be much better to see an e-mail notification about it.

                      We really need a way to protect SharePoint Online with a large retention time (3 till 6 months). Let Azure Backup kick-in for this point so we are able to set the right RPO ( Recovery point objective ) for this service.

                        you should make azure available in Cambodia. I think there are some students or people want to explore and use it.

                          Windows Azure is commercially available in the following 84 countries, and this is not one of them. Learn more here: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/faq/

                          We are adding more countries as we can, but in the meantime if you wish to use the service in an unsupported country, you’ll need to use one of several third party providers which front the Azure Subscriptions for organizations in unsupported countries. Just keep in mind that those providers are not MSFT so perform due-diligence to make sure any vendor you select is reputable.

                          Thanks for understanding.

                          • CoAP support for IoT Hub

                            The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is a specialized web transfer protocol for use with constrained nodes and constrained networks in the Internet of Things. The protocol is designed for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications such as smart energy and building automation.

                            It would be helpful if you could support CoAP in IoT Hub. It provides a lightweight REST model messaging which can be used in constrained devices with ease.

                            COAP also provides stronger security at implementation level and will be a game changer for IoT Hub.

                            • Need a function to change a format for X-Forwarded-For in Application Gateway.

                              Some web server uses the X-Forwarded-For header as only IP address format, not IP address:Port.

                              So we would like to choice the format for X-Forwarded-For header by web server requirement.

                              For example, "Require ip" in RemoteIPHeader directive on Apache should be IP address format.

                                • Allow VIP Swap when Staging slot is up and Running

                                  Recently we had a problem where we had ~1h of downtime which could have been avoided if VIP swap wasn’t failing.
                                  The problem was that 1 single VM was in a busy state in Production slot. All VMs in the staging slot were up and Running.

                                  Can you please allow a VIP swap if:
                                  1. All VMs in Staging slot are in Running state
                                  2. There’s the same or higher number of VMs in Staging slot compared to Production

                                  I know that it’s by design that VIP swap is possible only if all VMs in both Staging and Production slot…

                                  • Allowing changing of port 445 so I can access Azure File Storage using Comcast

                                    When I try to map to a network share in Azure File Storage I get an "Error 53" message. I'm using Comcast and it seems port 445 is being blocked by them. I'd like to roll this feature out to mobile users (many use Comcast or residential internet) and we can't realistically ask them to call their ISP and make a change. I could use a VPN I suppose but this would defeat the purpose of easily hosting the files in Azure.

                                    • RateCard metadata with their spec information

                                      I want to get RateCard meter metadata with their spec information (e.g. size, memory, cores...). Because I have to provide that data to our finance department.
                                      I can get the spec information of VMs by Get-AzureRmVMSize API, but they do not have MeterId, so can not associate with RateCard meter metadata.
                                      And I also want to get them about SQL Database, Redis Cache, and App Service. But they do not have API which can get their spec information in the first place.
                                      I think it is very useful if can get meter metadata with their spec information by RateCard API.

                                      • Allow Static Public IP's on Virtual Network Gateways

                                        Static Public IP's cannot be used with Virtual Network Gateways. This can potentially be very problematic if a Virtual Network Gateway ever needs to be re-created or re-provisioned.

                                        Example: what if we have 30 separate tunnels to a Virtual Network Gateway and it needs to be re-created or re-provisioned? This would result in a new Public IP being provisioned (takes about 30-40 minutes - of downtime!) which would require 30 remote VPN Administrators to be engaged to rebuild their side of the tunnel. This could be easily resolved by allowing Static Public IP's to be associated with Virtual Network Gateways.

                                        • Make Azure available in Haiti

                                          Microsoft Azure should be available for developers and businesses in Haiti. This country lack of a power supply system you can rely on for business, so the cloud is our best options. Please consider adding Haiti in the list of supported countries while signing up for Microsoft Azure.
