    • Make Azure AD Domain Services available in CSP subscription

      Currently Azure Active Directory Domain Services are not available for CSP subscriptions. Firstly because you can't deploy classic VNets in CSP subscriptions and this service is required to setup AADDS. Secondly because AAD is not available for CSP subscriptions to manage from Classic Portal and according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-domain-services/active-directory-ds-faqs there is no Powershell cmdlet to turn on AADDS. This means you can't use AAD features like Kerberos authentication in CSP offerings.

      • Why no datacenters in Middle East and Africa?

        Hi Microsoft,
        I can’t help thinking that Microsoft is pursuing some sort of imperialist western agenda with the deployment of its worldwide Azure Datacenters! As an independent software developer based here in Dubai with clients right across Africa, The Middle East and the Sub-continent we currently have the choice of hosting in Western Europe (Amsterdam) which is between 6500km and 8000km away from our clients, or South East Asia (Singapore) 5000 to 11000kms away.
        Guys it is time to realize that there is 2/5's of the world’s population nearby - let’s see something proactive in terms of datacenter deployment, and…

        • 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。

          • Increase listener limit for Application Gateway

            Application gateway has a very low listener limit (20 listeners / certificates). This severely limits it's usefulness for multi-tenant/domain applications where a web farm / service hosts many endpoints. IIS itself has no such small limit, but due to constraints on certificate deployment in cloud services, Application Gateway is the only clear path to wide scale SNI based SSL hosting. With it's low limit, it does not come close to meeting our use case. I would suggest the limit be removed or set to a very high limit like 10k+ so many certificates could be bound to host many different…

            • WAF on Application Gateway needs a function to exclude some condition like a trusted node.

              Now, Web Application Firewall feature would be available as part of Azure Application Gateway.

              Currently, WAF on Application Gateway seems to not have a function to exclude from blocking access by any condition.
              So, I would like to request to add this function for WAF on Application Gateway.

              Acutually, Many WAF product could exclude particular access from blocking like a trusted node.

                • Bi-directional console access to VM's.

                  Most needed feature request which would help us during incidents with VMs would be a proper bi-directional console access to VMs.
                  At the moment console access is only one way with screenshots & serial output, but it does not help when any config change is needed to get recovered.

                  • Set an AzureAD account to expire on a specified date

                    Just like in active directory allow accounts to be set to expire on a specified date. Our company policy is to set network accounts for non-employees (consultants, contractors, temporary employees, interns) to expire at a certain interval after they are created. We want the same functionality within Office 365.

                      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.

                            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.

                            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.

                                  • Backend heath status of Application Gateway

                                    We deployed the Application Gateway on the subnet where NSG's In-Bound rules is set. In the result, we got the status of backend health is 'unknown'. We got the 'Healthy' status when the NSG doesn't associate to subnet. Even if NSG's In-Bound rules is set, We'd like to confirm the backend health.

                                    • Allow English international user develop for Azure China a possibility

                                      I am very excited with Microsoft's recent announcement regarding Azure China.
                                      How can non-Chinese speaking MSDN developer use their monthly credit with Azure China?
                                      Right now It doesn't seem to understand my regular Microsoft account login...
                                      Isn't the whole point to allow us, to get inside mainland china?!
                                      My whole aim is to do just that.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Linux console access or repair CD image

                                          It would be really nice to have some sort of console access like digitalocean.com, vcloud air and other vendors.

                                          This comes really handy when you have a Linux VM that is stuck at boot due to let's say FSCK or waiting for some input.

                                          Another possible way of dealing with such issues would be to have an option to boot from a Linux Rescue image, like gparted, knoppix or anything that can provide you basic tools to mount a disk, run fsck and other stuff.
