  2. Add filetype to results of the bing custom search

    When getting back results from the Bing Custom Search it would be useful to get the filetype of the returning WebPage Object. Currently there are only the field available mentioned in https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/rest/api/cognitiveservices/bing-custom-search-api-v7-reference#webpage.

    I would suggest to add another property "filetype" or "mimetype" which contains the filetype of the resource (e.g. pdf, pptx, xls or similar).

  4. 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…

  5. Users would like to control the InstanceIds of VMSS

    Each instances of VMSS(Virtual Machine Scale Set) has a instance id. This id is used as the host name of each instance. And this number is provided as serial numbers. I'd like to control this number.
    E.g. initiliatize this serial number's countup. and so on

  6. Add SEPA Direct Debit as a payment method

    SEPA Direct Debit is the standard way to pay for regular subscriptions for European companies and citizens.

    SEPA Direct Debit is a Europe-wide Direct Debit system that allows merchants to collect Euro-denominated payments from accounts in the 34 SEPA countries and associated territories.

    Can Azure please support this payment method?

  7. Why are Free Trials tied to bank card??? And is it even legal (in Europe)???

    Free Trial accounts appear to be linked to the bank card used in the subscription -- why a bank card is required for a free subscription is absurd and I even wonder how legal (under European law).

    But once a bank card was used for a Free Trial that bank card is "black-listed" from Free Trial subscriptions for 12-months.

    Even not thinking about the legal/privacy implications of of that, I've previously used a Free Trial to evaluate some Azure features and now wanted to evaluate Notification Hubs -- not allowed because I'm using the same bank card. It's a different…

  8. Better pricing structure for API Management

    We currently use 4 instances of APIM for duplicating our environments (Dev/UAT/Pre Prod and Production)

    We went with APIM as a solution for fronting some azure services and some internal services. Due to the VPN access only being available on Premium we are paying for over 32 Millions calls a day when we will barely generate a 1 Million. So we have 4 Premium APIM instances costing us £6000 a month purely for the VPN access. Forcing us to pay for a level we do not require just for a feature of the environment, it would be better if the…

  9. Communicate VM installing Windows updates in a VM to Azure portal

    Communicate VM installing Windows updates to Azure portal so that as a user I can tell the difference between a VM being unresponsive due to being broken or just being busy with installing updates.
    Currently there is no way to tell the difference which might lead to users unnecessarily submit support tickets for their VMs being stuck in the Starting stage.

  10. 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…

  15. Stop with ridicilous price increases

    First decomissioning of low priced features and replacing them with much more expensive ones (e.g. SQL Azure x10 price for same prior performance!), and now another 22% price hike across-the-board. Thanks MS - do you actually want customers? And all this whilst Google and Amazon keep reducing prices!

  18. Allow non Administrators to run Azure P2S VPN client

    We would like to have the possibility to allow users who are not members of the local "Administrators" group of workstations to connect to the VPN, without having the need to give them those privileges.

  20. Billing - Make it Clear

    Make Azure Bills clear on the Microsoft Billing Hub: https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders#/

    The Azure subscriptions are listed by the Offer Name. It was very confusing to understand why I was being billed random amounts for Visual Studio Subscription. Also, add the Azure Invoice number so I can match things up.
