  1. Azure Active Directory B2C: Don't charge for token refresh

    Azure AD B2C is great and the pricing too, except for the fact, that token refreshs carried out by the application (as opposed to being carried out by the user) are charged separately. An application that keeps a logical connection to the server while in the background, might carry out quite many token refreshs over time. A regular frequency of one refresh per hour leads to ~700 refreshs per month. Assuming 1.000.000 users, this sums up to ~500.000$/month. This exceeds the capacity of start-ups like ours by a factor of 1000 (!). Although AD B2C would be the perfect fit…

  2. Harmonize the offer types (CSP/Open/EA/PAYG)

    CSP is a great purchasing model for small and medium businesses, but has some serious problems.

    1) Migrating between CSP and any other offer is a very laboursome and expensive project (not to mention that many resources cannot be migrated). This can cause Vendor lock-in and some other major risks for customers using CSP. Currently even PAYG to CSP is not easy.

    2) CSP customers are unequal to other Azure users despite the fact that they pay the same or sometimes even more, because they do not have the same services available to them.

    3) CSP resellers have to put…

  4. users want to set up the MFA Setup Wizard later

    In the MFA release plan of a large company, thousands users are impossible to actually "force" from the day.

    So, the user needs a period which setting for the MFA can be skipped, before force setting period.

    In the period, it provide a selection such as "set up later" in the MFA setting wizard at the initial sign-in.

    if someone did not have a mobile device on that day,
    if someone wants to ask questions about MFA, etc...
    they can not access any Office 365.
    becouse, even if you set a policy to skip MFA on the LAN, the MFA…

  5. File Sync with Service endpoint/FIrewall enabled Azure file Storage

    Currently Azure File sync is not able to sync with a file storage which activates firewall function (and Service endpoint).

    Enterprise data often contains secret data. Therefore I need that file sync can be used with file storage which activates firewall function.

  8. Allow VNet Peering between ASM and ARM with different subscriptions

    Currently, when VNet Peering between virtual network in resource manager model and classic deployment model, the same supscription for the VNets are reqired.
    I hope we can freely configure VNet Peering between ASM and ARM with different subscriptions in the near future.

  9. Improve Free/Trial/Entry level offers

    Azure is prohibitively expensive for small businesses and new/poor developers.

    £150 for 30 days is not long enough to get up and running and to make a viable website/app to cover the costs.

    Suggestions:
    -Allow users to use the free credits over 12 or 6 or even 3 months.
    -Or return to your previous offer with free monthly credits for a year.
    -Or offer SSL on the shared plan. (sites without SSL are not an option)

    £50-£60/pm for a basic website with custom domain and SSL is ridiculous.

    I feel my only option is to abandon Azure and look at…

  10. Support for BYOL on pre-built VM Images

    When I want to create a SQL Server VM in Azure and use a license I already own (Bring Your Own License) I am unable to use an existing VM Image in Azure as these are pre-licensed. It would be good if I could use an existing VM image and supply just my license key.

  12. Please open a French Azure Datacenter

    France has many laws regarding datas security, and in some sector like healthcare, it's impossible to host stuff outside of France.

    I'd be a very good news for us that Microsoft could open a datacenter in France :)

  14. Azure Data Lake Analytics R Services Compute Context

    Please add R Services (RevoScale) to ADLA such that I can use ADL in a compute context in the same way I can currently use SQL Server with R Services in a compute context; bringing the data science to the data and not the other way around.

  15. deletion of integrated account link with logic apps

    Deletion of link of integrated account is operated from Azure Resource Explorer, However, I think that all resource management should be done from the portal. Please make it possible to delete link of integrated account from Azure portal as well.

  16. Introduce a free tier like AWS for better learning. One month trial is too short.

    Azure has many options so that trying out and learning how to work different scenarios is quite involved. There is a lot to learn and one month is not enough, especially as it is unlikely that someone can dedicate a full time month to Azure. Personally, I can't be bothered to try Azure for just 30 days - what's the point? It took me several months of occasional sessions to get the full hang of AWS. I am sure Azure is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but for the time being, I will stick with what works for me,…
