  1. VMs access for troubleshooting

    A thing that would help tremendously in troubleshooting VMs in Azure would be out-of-band access. That would give more options to the user for troubleshooting connectivity issues.

  3. dumb voip requirements for Azure sign up

    Because of the dumb backwoods requirement to have a NON-VOIP number in order to sign up for Azure instead of using MS's Skype, our modern VOIP numbers, or just using a CC number like modern corporations, I suggest that you look up local payphones and have MS call that payphone with the connection number.

    Hopefully MS will join the 21st century some day. At least the no longer use fax numbers.

  4. Enable SQL Server Configuration option after migrating a Managed disk SQL VM

    Hi

    We basically need the SQL Server Configuration option to be enabled when we do migration by copying the managed disk and recreating the SQL VM, this is a huge requirement that should be fulfilled when we talk about doing SQL VM Migrations to CSP.

  5. Improved AZURE status page (past incidents)

    I m working with several cloud providers GCP/AWS and AZURE in the future. They all offers a status service :
    http://status.aws.amazon.com/
    https://status.cloud.google.com/
    We are aggregating them in a unique page available to our DEVOPS team to easily detect if an error is due to IAAS provider or not.

    Azure also has such service (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/status/ ) but the logic is different since the RSS do not contains past incident. Azure has a dedicated page to incident (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/status/#history ) but they cannot be retrieve with an API (JSON or RSS/XML).
    This specific logic prevent us to retrieve the past incidents…

  6. Delete Protection in Azure DNS Zone

    Team,

    I suggest that when Deleting a DNS Zone it should ask the user to type the full name of the zone, just like it does when you delete a Resource Group from Portal.

    recently, one of our Admin's by mistake deleted entire zone when he was trying to delete a record.

    Since that happened, we have used locks but locks are not that efficient, because whenever we want to delete a record we have to remove the lock first.

  7. Offline installer for Azure point-to-site VPN client

    The installer is through MS Store only. This is a showstopper for organization where MS Store is blocked as part of hardening guidelines for endpoints. An offline/standalone installer is not available as on date as confirmed by MS Support also. Strongly recommend making the same available.

  10. add the ability to get the thumbprint of a certificate stored in Azure key vault in an ARM template

    Currently, we can do things such as access the latest version of a secret using secretUriWithVersion so that we never have to hardcode the secret version. We should also be able to something similar for getting the certificate thumbprint of a certificate stored in Azure key vault. This would be very useful for the Azure resources that need these in ARM template deployments.

    For example, Service Fabric clusters require the certificate thumbprint, and App Services, such as Azure Functions, use WEBSITELOADCERTIFICATES environment variable to enable searching for a certificate by thumbprint in the certificate store.

    With this change,…

  11. Appgw header limiation 16K

    Hey Appgw
    We are hitting a limitation of header. which only allows 16K. the reason is we have Kerberos service running behind appgw, and Due to the principle of Kerberos serivce, the traffic would be encrypted and sent through appgw, this cause the header is much more bigger than usual, this is expected behavior by Kerberos, but appgw doesn't support seems to be sad story, could we consider this as feature request?

  12. Simulate outage of any Azure service

    As an Azure customer, I want to be able to simulate an outage of any Azure service my solution is using. This will allow me to test resiliency of my solution against various service outages. It will be useful for Azure itself too (think about the latest South Central outage).

  13. Azure Media Player - Is there any way to add custom icon (for a new plugin) to the right control bar icons?

    I am adding a new plugin, where the functionality will be triggered on a button click (by adding a new icon the control bar). Is there any way, we can send icon details to azure media player options which creates the icon on the right control bar(near to sub title) so hover functionality will be added by default.

  16. Azure Firewall - allow Enable/Disable rule

    Please can you add possibility Enable/Disable firewall rule ?
    It will help in some troubleshooting scenarios, when you need quickly Enable/Disable rule instead of deleting and recreating it

  17. Allow creation of Minecraft Server on Azure Dreamspark

    You should allow the creation of a Minecraft Server on the Dreamspark Azure plan. Why? Out of all the people who use Azure, student developers are the ones most likely to want to host a Minecraft server. It seems odd to allow enterprises to create Minecraft servers but not students. You already allow us to host web apps, and the amount of bandwidth that a Minecraft server takes up is pretty minimal. If you were really worried you could restrict the amount of people allowed on the server. Microsoft Azure is such a great service for us to learn how…

  18. Can we allow self-hosted integration runtime and Blob in Data Factory's Data Flow feature?

    For enterprise where we are not allowed Azure-managed integration runtime because it has public IPs, we need to leverage self-hosted integration runtime (using VM) in Azure Data Factory (ADF).

    This set-up works well in the simple Copy Data feature of ADF. However, it does not work with the Data Flow (extract, transform, load) feature. The latter only allows Azure-managed.

    Also Data Flow does not allow linked service to a Blob. It can only accommodate Azure SQL Database, DW, and ADLS2.

  19. Allow Pin to Dashboard use Set time in query for Azure Log Analytics - Logs

    Now Pin to Dashboard only allow to query the data in 30 days which is not suitable for some join scenario that need to query data beyond 30 days.

    Current limitation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/visualizations#limitations-1

    Suggestion:

    Allow Pin to Dashboard use Set time in query for Azure Log Analytics - Logs
