  2. 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.

  3. Service Bus: Session-aware queues support through REST

    Session-aware queue is a awesome feature.

    But if you work with any tecnology (all but .Net), you don't have access to it because REST API do not support this feature.

  4. 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.

  5. Password Validation in Azure SSPR

    As of now, when user is trying to change his password via Azure SSPR user gets a generic statement stating that "the password does not meet the complexity etc...".

    Instead of the above statement/message we want some message to be displayed in azure SSPR on the fly (while user is typing the new password) below are few suggestions.

    1. The password should be at least 9 characters long
    2. Do not use repeat password.
    3. Employee cannot use user name as password
    4. Password should meet below criteria
    4.1. Password must contain lower case letters
    4.2. Password must contain upper…

  6. 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 .

  8. 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.

  9. Allow automatic upgrade of Azure AD Connect with custom sync rules

    If you have a custom synchronization rule in Azure AD Connect, AADC will not be auto-upgraded due to UpgradeNotSupportedCustomizedSyncRules.

    It would be great if AADC can be upgraded even if there's a customized sync rule to keep the environment up-to-date.

  10. Make it easy for me to know when my VM is being throttled

    Knowing when throttling is the cause of your VM's performance woes is essential but there is no scalable way of monitoring when an Azure VM is being throttled. VM and disk maxims change according VM size and disk specification. Setting up alerts based on PerfMon and/or Metrics counters is, at best, laborious. Setting up the monitoring of:

    VM level throttling:
    *IOPS: \PhysicalDisk(_Total)\Disk Transfers/sec (PerfMon)
    *Throughput: \PhysicalDisk(_Total)\Disk Bytes/sec (PerfMon)

    Disk level throttling:
    *IOPS: \PhysicalDisk(drive)\Disk Transfers/sec (PerfMon)
    *Throughput: "\PhysicalDisk(drive)\Disk Bytes/sec (PerfMon)

    Storage account throttling:
    *Max egress: Metrics\storage_account\Account\Egress (Azure Portal)
    *Max ingress: Metrics\storage_account\Account\Ingress (Azure Portal)
    *IOPS: Metrics\storage_account\Account\Transactions* (Azure Portal)

    Does not scale well…

  13. 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.

  14. Provide Azure SQL Database on Azure Stack

    Provide Azure SQL Database service on Azure Stack for compatibility with Azure in the cloud, as currently Stack only supports SQL Server 2016.

  16. Control which VM will be excluded in case of scale-in in a scale set

    We want to make a Oracle application auto-scale (scale-out,scale-in) using IaaS. So the concern with the application is, it supports Admin role enablement only in one VM in its cluster. So if we define a scale set and in case of scale-in the VM with Admin role enabled shuts down then that will be a problem for us. Thus can we have a feature to exclude some VM's from scale-in, so that such business scenarios can also be fulfilled by Azure.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Pratik

  17. sweden

    Provide Azure region in Scandinavia

    A lot of companies and governments in Sweden demand that their data is physically stored in the country. By not having an Azure data center there prevents a lot of applications and services for the Swedish market to be hosted in Azure.
    Amazon is now realizing this and puts up 3 datacenters in the middle of Sweden.
    Sweden has alot of good qualities, like cheaper cooling because of the weather as well as alot of good technical personell availiable, and putting up a scandinavian region, would make it much better for all scandinavian countries, because…

  18. option to resize OS VHD

    I would like to see a feature to shrink VHD from 127 GB default, i feel its not fair business practice for us not to choose or modify size

    1st allocating 127 GB may be business decision but not allowing to shrink it is not a fair practice it more like money grab.,

    downloading and uploading do this task is also not fair as we will be charged for download

  19. Azure Policy : Need to see compliant ressources (not only not-compliant)

    HI,

    When setting up Azure Policy, compliant policy just display non-compliant ressources.

    It could be give some confusion for Policy Manager if our custom policy is really working. Best way that I found, is to create a new ressource without attended settings, then check later (if audit mode) if this ressources is show as non compliant, then change the settings for check if now I've 0 non-compliant ressources.

    For to be more quick in deploying azure policy rules, just a tab for show all compliant ressources, could be useful.

    Extra question : when having not conpliant based on field, to…

  20. Nordic azure region

    Build a data center (Azure region) to Finland or Sweden. As it stands there is a lot of distance to closest data center from Finland or Sweden.

    Having data center close to the customers would bring new customers and also improve service quality to old customers.
