  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. Keep notifications from previous session in azure portal

    Notifications disappear from last session. Due to this its difficult to keep track of inprogress work.
    E.g- Importing a database
    Notification - Inprogress
    After refresh notification is gone and you have no idea about the status of your import .

  16. when a server shuts down unintentionally due to a host outage, please notify all customers affected.

    Currently MS Azure notifies customers during scheduled outages, however, in the event of an emergency outage, where a customer's server is rebooted, (due to a host hardware failure, or whatever), all customers affected should be notified as a courtesy. We had an outage and had our services not started currently due to a password issues, we would have known that the server went down.

  17. Azure Auto-Scale planned capacity increase

    There should be a option to easily increase resource availability based on existing data, like something that would reflect the phrase "Increase machine count by 1 every 30 min from 7am until 9am". Currently setting different rules for every 30 min breaks and auto scale usually raises 5 at once...

    Azure USGov doesn't have a system status page, and I know I'll need one.

    Here's the AWS page for comparison:

  20. Auto-failover to next credit card if bounced

    In our case as a startup, we do not get credit approval so that we can have invoice as payment method. So we have to have credit card.

    In distant future, if we loose the credit card and we report it lost, the next Azure payment will bounce. And what then happens automatically, is that ALL our servers are shutdown! Immediately and without further notice.

    This is a big problem since high availability is key to our product.

    There is a possibility to add additional credit card to Azure. However, there is no automatic failover: if primary card fails, then…
