      • 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

        • 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…

          • 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…

            • Support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI

              Please support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI. Currently we have to make incredibly manual slicers for it, or else download the data via powershell, programmatic split the Tags into individual fields, and then reupload the data to be analyzed separately, instead of being able to do this straight out of BI.

              • 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.

                • Network Security Group

                  +Feature Request Discussion - There is a continued need for more intelligent NSG's going forward this is not only to provide a more dynamic, distributable scalable network but to replace more traditional models for DMZ designs. Focusing on distributed designs that do not rely on Virtual Appliances.

                  • 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…

                          • 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!

                                      • Recovery Services needs a way to migrate to a new vCenter

                                        We recently ran into a situation where we upgraded our on-prem vCenter by standing up a new server and migrating resources to that. However after doing so we discovered that it is not possible to "migrate" systems replicated in Recovery services to that new server. Instead we have to delete them and then re-replicate from scratch.

                                        Having a way to update a replicated system in recovery services, changing it from one vCenter server to another would be extremely helpful!

                                        • Allow other options to authenticate calls to a webhook from Alerts

                                          Presently, it is only possible to call a webhook from an Azure Alert by providing a URL, and thus only allowing the passage of a security key via a query string parameter. This is bad security practice since the URL can be logged in plain text on web servers. Please provide an option to add additional data to the body of a POST/PUT webhook call so we can pass sensitive information safely
