  1. Windows 8.1, Windows 10 in x86 32bit mode

    Currently I can only deploy (create) Virtual Machine (resource based) based on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Both are 64bit.

    I would like to have ability to create a x86 based, 32bit based Windows Virtual Machine, 8.1 and/or Windows 10.

  2. Displeased with Free Trial Offer for Students

    Offer a free account to students, and then require that account to be upgraded to a paid account for nothing more than trying to run a JVM? AWS or other services are looking a lot more friendly right now.

  4. Unable to select App Id LUIS Connector for Logic Apps

    <English>
    The LUIS connector for Logic Apps is not available for standard use due to the update and now we need to input the App ID directly to use it.
    We request early improvement since this situation might cause lots of confusion to users.

    <Japanease>
    ロジックアップにおけるLUISコネクターにおいて、App IDの選択ができなくなり、App IDを直接指定する利用となっています。
    利用において混乱を招く可能性が多くあるため、早期改善を要望します。

  5. Provide a means to mark an IaaS Virtual Machine as unhealthy or 'not yet ready'

    Currently when the infrastructure decides to reboot a VM for maintenance there is some kind of internal probing done by the Hypervisor to determine when the VM is healthy and then to reboot VM's in other fault/upgrade domains.

    The conditions under which a VM is considered healthy is too optimistic.

    Our database servers need 5-15 minutes to 'warm up' before being 'healthy'. This means the infrastructure is taking down both our primary and secondary virtual machines in a time frame that overlaps with both their warmup periods, bringing down our production application.

  8. Azure AD Conditional Access IPv6 Support

    Currently, Azure does not support mapping most IPv6 addresses to a geolocation. We need this implemented for our conditional access policies to block sign in from foreign countries. This is a huge issue because bad actors can completely bypass our geolocation blocks simply by using an IPv6 address. Microsoft CAS supports IPv6 location mapping, when will Azure support it? Since CAS leverages Azure for conditional access, the misalignment of features creates a hole in Microsoft's security solutions. Please provide a time window for Azure AD IPv6 location support.

    Should be able to customize the number of NICS regardless of the cores, ram and other config. we are currently blocked with our fortigate firewall deployment because of the same and willing to consider AWS as an alternative.

  12. Binaries building and hosting for Open Source projects

    In Nodejs world, building native binaries for several platforms using node-gyp and wrapping it with nodejs wrapper is getting popular.
    Case in hand is node-sass, a wrapper around libsass, which builds and host its binaries on GitHub, which happen to be a not very viable solution. See https://github.com/sass/node-sass/issues/504 and https://github.com/sass/node-sass/issues/535.

    It would be nice if Windows Azure team shed some love towards open source community and provide building binaries on multiple platforms (Windows, Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, FreeBSD and Mac) and hosting them for free of cost.

    On a related note, it would be great if Microsoft consider building…

  13. Make Azure available in Suriname

    Please make Azure available in Suriname, South America. AWS does support Suriname, but Azure doesn't. Some more options and competition would be nice.

  14. Add ability to bulk delete old images in ACR

    Please add the ability to remove multiple images from ACR. These are piling up as we do automated continuous deployments and there's no clean and easy to purge old and no longer needed images.

    Sometimes I'm able to delete one image at a time, sometimes this option is disabled. It would be awesome to have checkboxes with a select all option and do a bulk delete, or better yet, set up rules for images older than x versions to be auto wiped

  15. 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.

    I have an Elastic DB Pool, and attempted to resize my eDTU performance level from 100 to 200. This has taken hours and still reports as "Updating...".

    I know that this is still preview, so maybe that is it. It also appears that there is an issue in East US 2 with Network Infrastructure and Storage so maybe that is the problem. Or maybe I ran into a new bug that the engineering team needs to be made aware of....

    Not sure, but thought I'd report it,

  19. REST API for Azure Status

    I'm responsible for multile Azure tenants, each with multiple subscriptions. The Resource Health API is a good tool but keeping an eye on the general health of things, but is too specific. for my needs. I keep an eye on the Azure Status webpage and RSS feed, but would prefer to check it periodically via code.

    Ideally I'd like to be able to make a 'generic' REST API call to return the contents of what is displayed on the Azure Status webpage, without having to specify an Azure tenant/subscription GUID or even having authenticate.
