  1. Add Stream Analytics to Azure Germany datacenters

    Please add Stream Analytics to the Azure Germany datacenters (Frankfurt and Berlin).

    This is a critical component to our product roadmaps, and ensures that we maintain compliance with the German BDSG federal data protection requirements in addition to the other EU data protection acts like GDPR.

    Ensuring a full set of features in the German datacenters is particularly important due to BDSG.

  2. 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.

  3. Maintenance notification for “NMAgent updates”

    Blackout occurred for 5 seconds as the NMAgent, which is a network of Azure infrastructure, was updated.
    In the event of an outbreak, the user must be able to receive alarms or notifications for the affected resource.
    Because this maintenance influences the Windows Cluster users. This notification make many azure users so happy.

  4. 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…

  5. Add Gitlab support for ADF Code Repository

    Hi! I love the idea of being able to use a repository for my organisations Azure Data Factory pipelines but currently can't as we only have access to an on-prem instance of Gitlab.

    Are there any plans to add further repository support to ADF?

    Thanks!

  6. Enable Clone App for Linux Azure App Service

    Hi,

    Right now, the App Cloning feature is only available for Windows App Service. It could be really great to enable it for Linux content too.

    The feature would be very usefull in order to change the App Service Plan of a running Linux App Service, without any recreation.

    If we want to change the Plan for an Linux App Service we must choose an App Service Plan in the same deployment or recreate it.
    The App Cloning feature would allow Finops optimisation becoming way more easier.

    Regards

  7. Better alerts for AKS certificate expiration, or rotate certificates automatically

    Yesterday we have considerable downtime on two of our AKS clusters. The problem was that AKS clusters created prior to March 2019 have certificates that expire after two years.

    Ours was created two years ago yesterday and we had to rotate the certificates to get them working again.

    Two feedback items around this.

    1) There was little information on this online. We feel this was very under-communicated from Microsoft / AKS. Also there was no alerts or anything that this certificate was expiring. I know the expiry has been changed to 30 years now, but there must be many clusters…

  8. 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.

  10. Enable the "Extension" feature for Linux App Services

    Enable the "Extension" feature for Linux App Services.

    More specifically, I need the "Dynatrace Extension" to install OneAgent and monitor my Linux App Services just like I do my Windows App Services.

    Thank you.

  11. Enable access to PDF invoices for additional users/groups for Azure Germany

    Right now, only the account administrator can access PDF invoices within Azure Germany.

    This Microsoft article describes in detail how to enable access to monthly PDF invoices for additional users/groups:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/billing/billing-manage-access

    But according to a statement from a Microsoft customer support engineer, this is not available for Azure Germany.

    Why is that?

  12. Open a DataCenter in Chile

    Chile is a growing market. Google has a data center here and the communications infrastructure for the cities is good. If you build it they will come ! the Internet providers here still charge a premium for international traffic, ignoring the fact that they are thieves, I believe a having Azure/Office 365 presence in Chile would generate interest in the service. We are testing n Brazil, but the lack of some services and the use of international traffic is a big problem for our plans.. We are a Gold Partner interested in migrating an existing online service to Azure but…

  13. WEBJOBS_SHUTDOWN_FILE configuration using web jobs continuously

    continuously using webjobs and constitute a WEBJOBSSHUTDOWNFILE.
    When Azure maintenance occurs, it stops before the file is deployed, even though you have configured WEBJOBSSHUTDOWNFILE.

    Please consider our request that files, such as WEBJOBSSHUTDOWNFILE, should be placed before shutdown the server.

  14. Allow Customers the ability to see the allocated workers from the client side, as well as which workers get into bad instances.

    At the moment, customers are unable to see which of their workers are assigned to bad instances from the Azure Portal. In order to know this very valuable information, they have to contact Azure Support Staff, and be in close contact with them every time they make any updates, or restart their application to see if things are going correctly.

    As workers are incredibly important, they are basically the backbone of function apps, I propose that we make it so that customers have the ability to see which workers are allocated to their app services.

  15. integrate Azure File Services in DFS-R

    If you use Azure File Services as an alternative to a file server, it would be very useful to have a replication mechanism like DFS-R.

  16. Perform Microsoft Authenticator Backup in OneDrive

    First of all: Managed Open is active in our infrastructure.
    All Microsoft apps are located in the business container on the iOS device.

    It is currently not possible to back up the account information of the "Authenticator" app.
    iCloud does not work due to Managed Open in (private container) and OnDrive is not available.

    I am aware that you want to prevent business data from being backed up in a private area, but if the Authenticator App and OnDrive App are both in the business container, the account information can be saved in the business OneDrive account.

  17. Enable applications in Azure to share configuration

    If you have multiple Azure Websites or Azure Roles provisioned, you might want them to share configuration details, for example about databases or storage account locations.
    I would like Azure to have a something like, "Azure Shared Configuration", that you can point applications to (so, I guess there's that) and receive whatever settings they need.

  20. Enable MySQL 8 Support on Azure Database for MySQL Flexible Server

    We would love to migrate to Azure Database for MySQL Flexible Server from normal VM, especially because of the backup implementation. The only thing stopping us is the fact that there is no support for MySQL 8 as we are using some features of version 8 for better performance.
