  1. Provide info on GPU quota and allow GPU quota management in the portal

    It's extremely hard to get GPU access. When I wanted to add GPU quota I had to file a support request spend 3 weeks(!) talking back and forth with some Indian support person to turn on the GPU. It's trivial with Amazon; why so hard for Microsoft? Why isn't it automated?
    Also there seems to be no clear view of GPU quota on the portal. Can't this be visible easily? E.g., 3 GPU cords used, 97 remaining.
    Finally, the requirements around HDD/SDD for the NC machines are super confusing, and all the NCv2 or v3 options are always greyed out.

  2. please auto enable Secure_Input and Secure_Output settings on Logic App KeyVault activities.

    Hi,

    Azure logic apps currently have optional setting on KeyVault activities to secure input and output values. We need it to be default as these are secrets and critical to any organization.

    Instead of leaving them as optional, please auto enable SecureInput and SecureOutput settings on Logic App KeyVault activities.

    Thanks.

  3. Zone Redundant Load Balancer in India Region ( Central , South and West )

    We couldn't create a zone redundant Load balancer for India Regions ( Central south and west ) as our entire PROD and DR solutions are hosted there we don't don't have a choice rather than setting up a load balancer there.

  4. Azure Firewall - FQDN Tags - Add O365 services URLs

    Currently, there is no FQDN Tags for O365 services in Azure FW that can be selected which is very inconvenient for cx to manage rules for O365 services

  5. Throttling Rule for CDN operation

    In general use in Azure portal to do CDN operation, when we have heavy workload or urgent situation, we need read CDN endpoint information frequently, so this is easy to trigger Throttling Rule for CDN operation.
    For example: GET endpoint

    Currently this limit restrains our efficiency to configure CDN resource in Azure.
    So we suggest that increase this limit, this is very helpful to better experience when using Azure.

  6. App Registrations: Notification email for Certificates & Secrets

    Looking forward to have an alert on expiration of Client Secretes and Certificates for the App Registration. It will be great to have the similar option like Enterprise Application / SAML Signing Certificate / Notification Email

  7. 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.

  8. Computer Vision Api - Increase rate limit for standard tier

    I have a concern using the Standard tier in a production environment.

    My users can select and upload multiple images and I'd like to make 3 calls per image (1 analyzer, 2 thumbnails), naturally preferring to make those API calls concurrently.

    Doing so, even with a single user uploading 4 images, when done concurrently, I'm over the 10/sec rate limit and this doesn't even begin to factor in multiple users trying to upload at the same time.

    With rate limits so low I'm either going to have to make a bunch of Vision API accounts and do some kind of…

  9. sweden

    Provide Azure region in Scandinavia

    A lot of companies and governments in Sweden demand that their data is physically stored in the country. By not having an Azure data center there prevents a lot of applications and services for the Swedish market to be hosted in Azure.
    Amazon is now realizing this and puts up 3 datacenters in the middle of Sweden.
    Sweden has alot of good qualities, like cheaper cooling because of the weather as well as alot of good technical personell availiable, and putting up a scandinavian region, would make it much better for all scandinavian countries, because…

  10. 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.

    Provide Data Management Gateway as a service rather than requiring the customers to create a VM for some specific functions like authenticating to online SFTP providers.

  13. Azure Database for MariaDB: support version 10.4

    Add support for MariaDB versions 10.4 at Azure DBaaS.

    According to the docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mariadb/concepts-supported-versions), only versions 10.2 and 10.3 are supported; 10.3 since June 2019 as announced on the roadmap: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/azure-database-for-mariadb-support-for-mariadb-10-3-is-now-available/.

    However, version 10.4 is also stable since June 2019. See all releases here: https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/+releases/

    10.4 offers improvements and additional functionality, of course. :-) https://mariadb.com/kb/en/changes-improvements-in-mariadb-104

  14. Rest API to get the supported availability zones based on region and resource

    Currently, availability zones are only supported in a select set of regions. The ask is to be able to make a REST API call to see if a given region and resource type supports the availability zone. If so, how many zones are there.

    For example:
    While creating the VM using Portal, if we select the region as Central US which supports availability zones, it does enable the Availability Zone option in Portal UI.
    And If user selects the Size as "Standard_DS3" which supports only Zone "3".

    Similar support required from Rest API, is there a way we can get…

  15. Azure Firewall randomly selects the source public IP address to use for SNAT

    Azure Firewall randomly selects the source public IP address to use for a connection. Can we have a feature likes configuring outbound SNAT rule that just use some IPs for SNAT for better SNAT control?

  16. Windows Virtual Desktop Support for AAD Joined

    I have been considering Windows Virtual Desktop for our company. However, none of my staff have AD joined devices. They are AAD joined. Seeing in the documentation that WVD doesn't support being AAD joined means I won't consider WVD. It is a step way backwards for my organization to use on-prem AD when I am trying to get rid of it. I propose supporting AAD joined WVD. Thank you.

  17. Make Azure available in Samoa

    Please make Azure available in Samoa, South Pacific country north of Fiji. Given digital transformation plans to migrate to the cloud and Microsoft 365, it would be nice to be able to explore other Cloud services and solutions offered by Azure. Probably your only MS fanboy on island ;)

  18. Add public IPv6 subnet allocations for VNETs

    Provide publicly routable, provider-assigned IPv6 addresses for use in VNETs. This would be similar to the AWS feature of "Amazon-provided IPv6 CIDR block".

    Ideally each customer could get at least a /56 per region from a larger Azure block.

    NSGs should of course default to deny all inbound traffic even though these are public IPs.

    IPv6 Unique Local Addresses aren't useful inside Azure VNETS as IPv4 is prefered above ULAs for source address selection.

  19. Add customer ability for monitoring of AD B2C (ideally via Insights)

    AD B2C recently had an outage for 2.5+ hours, and I wouldn't have known had I not found it by luck. Nothing I can currently do will properly monitor this CRUCIAL component of my application. Arguably it's so important MS would never let it go down, but alas, 2.5 hours happened. And in the RCA for that outage, there was no mention of next steps improving customer side monitoring of the system. Please don't make me manually ping/screen scrape a login attempt every 5 minutes.. It would be shameful of MS if that were my best course forward.

    So: Please…

  20. False positive with Front Door WAF OWASP 941310 when request contains particular Chinese character

    I have a Front Door with WAF, use DefaultRuleSet_1.0 , and an app service in backend.
    There's some html form that can search or save data, use GET or POST request.
    When the request contains some particular Chinese character,
    like "張美", that request will been block by WAF, because the rule "941310 - US-ASCII Malformed Encoding XSS Filter - Attack Detected."

    That character "張美" should be encode to "%E5%BC%B5%E7%BE%8E",
    but in WAF log, I saw it was unicode format "\u5f35\u7f8e".

    What I can do :
    add the parameter name to managed rule exclusions, or disable rule 941310.
    But there's a…
