  1. Please support the use of Azure Public Logic Apps and an on-premise data gateway registered by a GCC-Mid (L2) Azure Active Directory tenant

    We are a government customer with a GCC-Mid (L2) Azure Active Directory tenant. That means that it is a GCC tenant that runs on Azure Public infrastructure so that it can provide identity services to Office 365 GCC. We have our Azure Public subscriptions linked to that tenant within https://portal.azure.com/. Everything works fine EXCEPT being able to register an on-premise data gateway within our tenant and allowing our Logic Apps in Azure Public to connect to that on-premise data gateway. This is because the gateway is registered in an Azure Government region so that Power BI GCC can leverage…

  2. Associated storage account of Azure VM

    In ARM there is no option available to get the associated storage account/vhd path of each Azure VM.
    In several cases, it is required to know the associated storage account name to perform operations accordingly.
    please consider the same.

  3. In SLB backend pool adding VM page, there's no sort/search/filter option that can be used to find the specific VM quickly.

    I met scenario that we have hundreds of VM in same VNET, and only need to add few of them to SLB backend pool, it's very hard to find the exact VM in drop-down VM list.
    Currently have to add VM to backend pool through powershell. Hope we can have sort/search/filter option there which can help to find exact VM quickly.

  4. Start production/staging swapping if a machine is busy. Azure should support the swapping, especially in a worst-case scenario.

    In a worst-case scenario, e.g. a workerrole is permanently on recycling (state busy), is it impossible to swap back to the previous release or to swap a new release from another stage (staging).

    Two weeks ago, we had the problem that one workerrole was permanently recycling, because an database update for the next release. To publish the next release, we installed the new one on staging environment. Staging rans pretty well.
    At this moment is the normal way is swap the releases production with staging. But this failed with error: The VIP swap operation failed. Detailed error message: VipSwap failed…

  5. Remove Cloud Service Pinning or allow it to be changed

    Currently when a cloud service is created it is pinned to a compute resource (server, blade or rack), this means that if the compute resource becomes overloaded existing cloud services may not be able to scale up when they need too and the only methods to resolve this is a) delete production deployment and redeploy 2) delete the cloud service and recreate these are both high disruptive.

    An alternate option would be great.

  6. Notification Email/Alert

    Account holder should receive a Notification Email / Alert before certain percentage, say 20-25% Credit limit is left. The percentage should be configurable.

    Before disabling account, a Notification / Aler t must be sent to the Account holder.
    There should be a facility to define multiple alerts.

    This will save severe busines critical impact when account suddenly gets disabled without warning.

  8. Better alerts for AKS certificate expiration, or rotate certificates automatically

    Yesterday we have considerable downtime on two of our AKS clusters. The problem was that AKS clusters created prior to March 2019 have certificates that expire after two years.

    Ours was created two years ago yesterday and we had to rotate the certificates to get them working again.

    Two feedback items around this.

    1) There was little information on this online. We feel this was very under-communicated from Microsoft / AKS. Also there was no alerts or anything that this certificate was expiring. I know the expiry has been changed to 30 years now, but there must be many clusters…

  9. Fix backup and recovery so that when you recover a disk it actually restores the disk and overwrites the broken disk?

    Hi Engineering,

    I'd opened a call with support to help with recovery on a Linux VM OS disk. The call reference was REG:117120617274810. I decided to attempt to restore the disks. However, the disks don't overwrite the disks on the shutdown VM.
    After several days, I found out that escalation support could not help me with the issue as this is, in the agents words "blocked".

    Perhaps this should be fixed so that restoring the disks actually restores the disks to the state they were in when the backup was taken?

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Regards, Jim

  10. Domainname wildcard support new portal

    (BUG?) Adding a wildcard domainname for a Web App in the old/current portal is buggy, but working. The new portal won;t let me use the * (asterix) when adding a custom domainname. Therefore, adding a wildcard domainname for e Web Site in the new portal isn;t possible.

  12. Please notification when STAMP IP address changed.

    I use STAMP IP adress instead Azure Websiite inbound and outbound IP address.
    (I know Azure Websiite inbound IP address static by IP-SSL setting)

    I need way to know when IP adress chabed.
    It is more convenient for users !!

  13. Zone location in Australia information should be shared . This will help to decide the zonal resiliency/DR over regional DR

    Zone location in Australia information should be shared . This will help to decide the zonal resiliency/DR over regional DR.
    I got to know from Microsoft Helpdesk that due to internal policy this information can not be shared. This information is crucial to decide DR strategy.

  14. ACI not inheriting VNET custom DNS server in to the configuration

    It would be better if we can have custom DNS configuration inherited to the ACI instance whenever we create ACI with VNET integration.
    ACI busybox/nginx instance is having default azure DNS server even though created with VNET integration

  15. Add UI to apply diagnostic settings across multiple virtual machines

    It's great that the UI has been added to put a custom counter in WAD without having to edit the config file inside the guest, but this would be really powerful if we could apply it to all virtual machines inside of a resource group or through some other policy mechanism exposed via the UI or PS (outside of using PS to force the config file).

  16. creditcard

    I'm sorry to say but having a Creditcard is only normal in USA.
    Why make having a creditcard mandatory for using Azure?
    I have a Microsoft developers account for many years now. That should be enough I guess. Also verification can be done by SMS and that suffices. Just stop the service is someone exceeds the limit or does not pay.
    I heard it's also possible to switch to invoice only after you signed up for Azure. That makes the mandatory CreditCard even more weird.

    So please do NOT act as if all your customers are American. Be reasonable and…

  18. Azure MFA

    I would love to be able to use Azure MFA with ADFS 2016 with external idp. It seems like the only supported way to get MFA is to use Active Directory claims provider trust?

  19. send out an e-mail warning that the free trial is about to, or has expired.

    I was recently mucking about - and suddenly noticed my sendgrid account had been paused. After looking back and forth, and even engaging Azure technical support (who did not find my issue btw) - I figured out that the reason was that my free trial had ben 'admindisabled' and was expired - but it was in no way evident anywhere on the portal (nor the subservices I used).
