  2. Permit use parameters for effects (Audit/Deny) in Azure Policy

    HI,

    With Azure Policy, parameters in definition permit to build some rules based on variables, without edit definitions, just changing assignement.

    But parameters are limited and it's really useful if we could at least add a parameters for the effect, which can be Audit, Deny or Append.

    Why ? In many cases, we will build some JSON policy rules in Audit mode and will assign it for check actual compliance. OK, and then after some audit period, we want to change it to Deny for apply definitively this compliance. So at this point, we have to edit the policy for…

  5. Ability to search for ARM resources by tag in Logic Apps

    Logic Apps include an ARM connector, which is... a bit limited. It would be great to have the ability to search for (or list) ARM resources by tag.

    At the moment the only real way to search for items via tag is PowerShell, done as a Runbook, which you then have to connect to the Logic App... and then port the results across. Even the API is quite limited, as the tagged API only shows the count, not the resources attached to it.

  6. Prevent deletion of blob container

    There is no way to prevent the deletion of a blob container of an storage account.

    Using the locks, it works for Azure Portal, but using Storage Explorer it doesn't apply.

    If a container is deleted using Storage Explorer, it cannot be recovered.

    Thanks

  8. Support of reject, abandon etc. of message in conjunction with the MQTT-protocol

    At the moment there is no possibility to reject, abandon etc. messages in conjunction with MQTT-protocol sent from the Iot-Hub to the IoT-devices. This is only possible with AMQP.

  9. Internal As a Service DNS

    On Azure, the internal Active Directory server's DNS service must be served as a service. In this way, only the Active Directory feature is enabled on the server. Having no DNS on the server allows the server to run more efficiently.

  10. Provide availability zone capability in Canada.

    Many enterprise Canadian clients require 99.9% + availability and choose to go with alternate options due to availability zones not enabled for Canada region (Central and East).

  11. Free File Storage Tier

    As both a student and hobbyist, I would find it extremely useful to have an option to use file storage for free. Even if there was no redundancy, It would at least empower me to store what I need for my projects while I cannot afford to pay. I'm sure many others would be interested in a similar scheme.

  15. Send customer Alerts when you experience downtime

    Just spent a significant amount of time investigating an issue with a client's SQL database, only to eventually discover that there's an issue with this service in my region. I can live with the downtime but would appreciate a heads-up if you know there's an issue affecting me, which should be pretty trivial to automate.

    I presumed that this is so obvious that it must be something I just haven't subscribed to, but can't find anything!

  16. Azure SQL Backups

    We are using preview build and facing lot of issues due to instability. We tried restore of database and it completed till 74.5% and hung after that for 5 days and auto cancelled and when we tried again it completed in 50 min.
    Backup is taking 4 times longer than local backup.
    Restore is taking longer than expected time compared to local backup. Backups are not supported to failover cluster. We cannot backup to a server that is not in this subscription. For example we might have non prod and prod in different subscriptions and we cannot take copy of…

  17. Import/Export Time Series Insight

    I am missing the possibility to import and export the Time Series Insight module from resource groups. Right now I can't export any resource group containing "Microsoft.TimeSeriesInsights/environments". As this is a quite costly module I have to set up and tear down the module and it's settings manually each and every time for testing, which is quite painful.
    I would highliy appreciate the inculsion of Time Series Insight into the group export and import.

  18. Please give more backup options for SQL Database (longer-term backups besides Automated Backups).

    Please give SQL Database a way to store backups longer than 90 days. I am looking for the same flexibility as in Azure Recovery Services.

    Ideally, I'd like to do a backup every day for 30 days, hold a 1st of the month backup for 12 months, and hold a 1st of the year backup for a 1 year.

    I know there's the Automated Export, but it is only "automated" for 90 days max.

  20. Enable event alarm in Azure China

    In Azure China, Subscription Managers still can not use event alarms to help managing Cloud Services and VMs, which is a serious fault compared with Azure's competitors like QingCloud.com and Aliyun.com.
