  1. Allow static public IP on Application Gateway

    After AppGw stop/start, I noticed it was assigned a new public IP. If the sites are in production, we'd be in a lot of trouble. Please allow to assign a static public IP into AppGw.

    • Conditional access reporting

      It would be great to get reporting on conditional access policies .i.e. you have a conditional access policy to block a specific country and to generate a report to show the number of blocks from that policy

        • provide Azure availibility in Gibraltar

          Please provide Azure services availability in Gibraltar. Gibraltar as financial center does high value, a lot of big UK gaming companies are settled her. For me as a developer based here is hard to promote Microsoft solutions to potential clients while Microsoft solutions are not supported here. Many companies her are using Oracle solutions, it will make sense to catch the train here. It is the small country with big business here. It is bad, that MS is not supporting UK overseas territory, especially that one, that is member of EU as Special member state territory.

          • 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

            • 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…

              • 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.

                  • 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

                          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?

                            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.

                                  • Reserve target IP for Azure Site Recovery

                                    Currently in Azure Site Recovery there is an option to configure the static Target IP address for VMs when they are failed over using ASR.

                                    However, these Target IPs aren't being reserved by Azure DHCP and can be consume by any other resource in the same vNet and Subnet.

                                    The Azure Site Recovery currently pre-creates the Availability Sets and Replicated Disks when ASR is configured for VMs. We need the ASR to pre-create the NICs for the VMs at this state to ensure the Target IPs are reserved for use by the ASR during a failover.

                                    • 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.

                                        As a South American company working with 'old style' internet providers that have differing bandwidths or fees for 'nternational' traffic. The more services we can get near our location the better.

                                        • 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.
