  2. Azure MFA Server Add AD user logins for their domain account

    Why wasn't user domain logins one of the first things added to Azure MFA Server? That makes the most sense. I mean seriously. I understand application 2FA but user login without 2FA is an even higher security risk.

  3. Network Security Group Source Azure Services option

    My scenario include two Virtual Machines acting as Web Servers and a Traffic Manager in-place if the primary node fails I can switch to the other VM that is in a different datacenter. However they are accessible only by specific public IPs and to get Traffic Manager working, I had to create a rule in a different port for ANY.

    Wouldn't be easier to have an option on Source Azure Services, like there is in Azure SQL Server firewall?

  4. 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...

  5. Azure USGovernment should have a status page

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

    Here's the AWS page for comparison:

  6. Make it possible to undelete a VHD if it gets deleted.

    It appears someone deleted our VM and VHD over night.

    We cannot recover it without going to the backups

    Very unhappy that this cloud thing is not as good as advertised

  7. Conditional Access - Ability to Customize Text on the Block Access Screen

    We would like the ability to customize the text on the "Block Access" screen. This would allow us to explain to the user why they don't have access to the App and put a link to a Helpdesk KB. Also, it would be preferable to be able to customize the text per Conditional Rule, so the text can be specific to why the user was blocked for that particular App.

  8. fix the looping session timeout

    While browsing the options for my new azure account the portal session timed out (not expected because I was clicking on things). The option to login and continue refreshed the screen, but was immediately followed by the session timing out again. This repeated a half dozen times until I finally was able to click the logout menu item before the time our. Windows live then complained that it failed to log me out of several services. I kept trying with the same behavior. At one time windows live suggested I close my browser and clear my cookies. Huh?

    I think…

  9. Conditional access api with at least What If capability

    Create an API for conditional access that only displays the policies, but also enables you to perform 'What If' to test the them.
    It will significantly help create automations by overseeing what might get blocked. A response should be a detailed report like in the Azure Portal.

  12. Custom Role Definition - Storage CRUD using AD accounts for better Audit

    I wish to create a storage account CUSTOM role for my client.

    In that role I wish the Azure Identity (Users in On-Prem AD groups, Managed identity for webAPP, on-prem synced Service Accounts) to only Create/Add/Delete/Update (CRUD) without being able to see or self-rotate the Admin Key or SAS key for following.


    1. BLOB / Containers / Files

    2. FilesShare

    3. Table

    4. Queue/Messages.

    Current Method : [Auditing using KeyVault and Access Policies]

    Above is required as we want better Auditing directly from Storage account, rather than using current 2 step process method :

    Step 1 : Identity can go to key vault and…

  14. Adding certificate support in Pricing Tier D1. HTTPS connections are blocked with user-define domains

    There are more and more browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome with HTTPS Everywhere Plugin) that get HTTPS when connecting to a website. These customers then receive an error message (SSLERRORBADCERTDOMAIN). The reason is because the browser receives the domain azurewebsites. net as a response from the server and not my domain names. The certificate error messages can no longer be skipped in the newer browser versions. These customers will never come to the website.

  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 .

  17. Point-to-site VPN authentication logging

    When a client has their VMs inside VNets, and those VMs are not exposed to Internet, the only option to get to them is P2S VPN. But it uses certificates for authentication (which is not a good idea either). What's worse (!), there NO LOGGING!!! I mean, come on Azure team! This is like a security whole. No one knows who, when and from where got inside a perimeter??? This shouldn't even be here, this should be done from the very beginning.

  18. Give a warning before virtual machines reboot when in use?

    Sometimes when using a virtual machine, the connection will drop and from the Azure Portal we can see that the virtual machine is rebooting. It would be nice if there was a warning before a reboot.

  19. No Confirmation pop-up when we RE-Size VM

    When we re-size VM in Azure portal, As soon as we select the new VM Size it starts resizing. Ideally it should give a confirmation pop-up to confirm the resizing to be done. As it can lead to the accidentally resizing of the VM. ( It happened in my case). So i request MS to add the confirmation pop up before the actual resizing should start.
