  1. 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

    • 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…

      • Allow separate credit cards on each subscription

        Please allow for assigning a different credit card to individual subscriptions. I have an application which I am the technology contact and developer for however somebody else is paying for the hosting, I do not want to use my own credit card which is being used on my other subscriptions.

        I have these two credit cards in my profile however when I go to change the default credit card to use on the subscription in question it applies that credit card to ALL of my other subscriptions. This is not the desired change and it means I'm unable to have…

          • 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 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:

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • Azure SQL service endpoint with on-premise connectivity

                      Currently azure SQL service endpoint is only available within azure network. Is there any possibility to leverage this to on-premise machine via site-to-site/Express route.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                              After refresh notification is gone and you have no idea about the status of your import .

                                • 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.

                                    • 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…
