    • access specific folder in Azure with ftp

      I have an app Service in Azure that contains some folders and files.

      There is a user who has to upload some files to an isolated folder or drive that my app can reach. He has to upload them via ftp.

      I like to limit the users access to only one folder or a specific drive that my app service can reach.

      • Hypervisor and Virtual Machine (VM) Status Check Metrics similar to what is provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS)

        We also use Amazon Web Services and looking for metrics in Azure similar to the status checks which you can find here.
        http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/monitoring-system-instance-status-check.html

        As these allow us to monitor for problems such as the following and deal with them using automated runbooks or scale out our hardware :-

        System
        - Loss of network connectivity
        - Loss of system power
        - Software issues on the physical host
        - Hardware issues on the physical host that impact network reachability

        Instance
        - Failed system status checks
        - Incorrect networking or startup configuration
        - Exhausted memory
        - Corrupted file system
        - Incompatible kernel

            • Simplify the VM image capture and restore

              The process for capturing VM image and restoring it is much more easier on the classic portal than on the Azure portal. Is there any possibility similar functionality to be added on the new portal?

              • 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.

                        • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • Support OData for all Azure Resource Manager REST APIs

                                Currently only operations on resources provide partial OData query syntax to filter results (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn790569.aspx#bk_common).

                                Why not using $filter, $top, etc. on all REST APIs?

                                For example if I want to get information on every VMs with a name starting with 'foo-' I would like to do a List all VMs operation (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/mt163572.aspx) with a $filter=startswith(name, 'foo-')

                                    • Export Azure DNS Zones to the format of BIND

                                      Hey
                                      We wanna backup all our current azure DNS Zones. But currently only Azure Standard format is supported. that means there no solution to allow us to backup these zones/record in to the format of BIND. As Azure support import zones by the format of BING, but not export. this is quite incovenient for our such large amouns of DNS zones. plz review this proposal.

                                      • Point-to-Site VPN DNS issue

                                        After connecting the VPN client on windows 10 machine, I faced two differences in communication:

                                        When I connected through WiFi, I am able to communicate Azure VNET.
                                        But When I connected through Ethernet cable, I am unable to communicate to Azure VNET.

                                        This is because of traffic route, which change according to Metric value of the Network Adapter. So by changing this metric value to 100 for ipv4 and ipv6, I am able to communicate to Azure VNET from Ethernet connection.

                                        But, it's not the reliable way to change it for each machine Ethernet adapter. So, "I am expecting the…

                                        • Allow generic OpenId Connect compliant services to be configured as Identity providers in App service authentication and authorization

                                          Azure App services now support AAD, Google, Face book , Twitter and Microsoft accounts as Identity providers. A generic Open Id compliant Id provider configuration would enable many B2E scenarios
