  1. Provide azure P2S VPN client for Linux

    We need to have azure P2S VPN client for Linux machines, currently it is available only for windows. When managing a large set of VMs running in linux, we prefer using Linux control machine, and we currently don't have option to use P2S VPN setup in li nux. Im sure this feature will help lot of projects in linux taking advantage of Azure migratons

    • 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.

      • Allow aligning fault domains and update domains in an availability set

        In certain cases I want to manage the availability of data replicas across a cluster of machines, and can endure more downtime for greater predictability of the nature of downtime.
        An example is Kafka, where I can handle a large portion of machines going down so long as I can make predictions of how they'll be correlated so I can plan how I lay out topic partitions to keep a majority of partitions up.

        With the way availability sets are currently set up, I can limit my downtime in case of a fault, or in case of an upgrade, but…

          Hello,
          We suggest to you to make new Azure Regions: Middle East such as, Saudi Arabia or at least in France and Germany.
          The Middle East is bigger than Europe, Why two in Europe and no one there..

          • Unlock the features for students.

            I was excited to see Azure offered free to students via Dreamspark, but no SQL, VM, etc??? 9 out of 10 features are locked to the student license. I understand restrictions, but why does Microsoft even offer Azure to students if they aren't going to let them use it for the best Azure features.

            Please drop the restrictions on student accounts. It will help Microsoft in the long run...students are not running businesses with these products while in school, but they might when they graduate.

            Thanks,

            Nick

            • Need a function to disable Server: header in HTTP response from Application Gateway

              Currently, Application Gateway sets Server header like a "Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0" in HTTP response.

              For some security reason, I want to delete this header in HTTP response.

              If Application Gateway has a function to enable/disable to add the header, It will be more useful.

              • Stricter UD Walk Time Frames

                Currently, UD walk's seem to happen at any random time. Which for web app's that are on a single instance can mean downtime during the cold boot phase. These should really be applied out of hours/early morning (time zone dependant on your service plan location) to avoid major disruption. In a particular instance, we had 3 UD walk's within 2 days during normal business hours. I know this can be avoided by scaling the instances but really shouldn't have to be a requirement.

                • Permalink for Azure status history

                  Currently, Azure status history ( https://azure.microsoft.com/status/history/ )doesn't have permalink. I want to have permalink per status/failuer.

                  Current issues:
                  * Status history feed hide status older than 90 days. I can't know older history.
                  * I can't specify a specific status in history.

                  Why permalink?
                  * I should announse failuer or issue of Azure for customers when status updated (occurred and solved). In this case, I added evidence by quoting status report from Azure status history. However Azure status history doesn't have permalink and I should use quote always. That is weak as evidence. (They confuse and dificult look up issues…

                      • Add ssh public key in metadata 169.254.169.254

                        When querying for http://169.254.169.254/metadata/instance?api-version=2017-04-02 in an instance, we can't get the public ssh key to configure the instance. When not using the linux agent, it could be nice to be able to access this user data. FYI AWS & Aliyun already does this (it's an entry called public-keys)

                        • Network Security Group Counter logging - Source IP

                          Using NSG Diagnostics combined with Log Analytics gives us much needed visibility of our rule hit counters, great stuff!

                          Unfortunately there is no information within the counter logs to inform us the source of any such hits, which really limits the usefulness of this information.

                          Any chance that could be added to the diagnostics logging output for NSGs?

                            • In azure storage explorer change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store)

                              In azure storage explorer, it'd be nice to be able to change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store), this feature would be very useful as we check if our processes went through sometimes by looking at the last modified date of a specific file, while we have this automated sometimes data scientists and other users can quickly tell if something is not up to date.

                              Is this feature available? This only works only for Shared Access Signature but not ADLS

                                • Let me arrange web app settings by alphabetical order!

                                  Currently the web app settings have no option for order control in either the old or new portals. Allowing administrators to arrange these alphabetically or at least have a default alphabetical order would be very helpful.

                                  • NV series with Premium Storage

                                    I would really like it if the NV series offered Premium storage. We have apps that require a GPU and high performance. Azure seems to keep offering new versions of the NC series while ignoring the NV series.

                                    • user account for Azure P2S VPN

                                      Right now Azure point-to-site VPN client only using a client certificate for all users to access the Azure point-to-site VPN. For security standpoint, this is really not a good practice. It will be nice if we can have a configuration like other VPN clients, which we can create user credentials (username & password) to connect to Azure network via point-to-site VPN without using a client certificate. This way, we can secure the connection if someone leaves our company without having to recreate the root/client certificate for all users again.

                                      • Provide list of SKUs for resource type through Azure REST API

                                        While provisioning resources using Azure REST APIs. One of the required thing is SKU. We have no API that provides list of available SKUs (if applicable) for provided resource type.

                                        We badly need this as there is no way to get always up to date list of SKU.

                                        • THIS IS THE WORST WEBSITE EVER CREATED

                                          I CANT FIGURE OUT HOW TO UPDATE THE CREDIT CARD.

                                          THIS SHOULD BE EASY!!!!

                                          HAVE TO GO TO PORTAL A THEN PORTAL B, CLICK ON PORTAL A SUBSECTION 20, SEE MY SUBSCRTION, BUT ITS DISABLED SO i CANNOT UPDATE THE CARD.

                                          I CANT CALL ANYBODY SINCE THERE ARE NO PHONE NUMBERS.

                                          THE WHOLE THING IS A DISASTER.
