    • 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.

      • 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.

        There following features I believe would put Azure ahead of other cloud providers. These could be canned as a premium offering charged per NSG on any number of measures even number of requests etc..

        1. DNS Based Rules
        2. NSG NameSpaces for MS Public Services especially Azure PaaS Servers by Service
        3. Custom…

        • 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!

                • Prevent the 'failed' state when VMSS autoscaled to subnet namespace size

                  VMSS easily turn 'failed' status with following step and cannot recover without delete and re-create the VMSS.

                  Repro step is:
                  1. Create Vnet and subnets. The address space of subnet for VMSS is /27 (for example)
                  2. Create AppGW(Small/1instance, no publicIP) in Vnet
                  3. Create VMSS under AppGW
                  ... set the Autoscale rule as Min/Max/default : 2/25/2
                  ... In my case, I created Standard_DS1_v2 size VMSS
                  4. change Autoscale parameter to 16/25/16
                  5. change Autoscale parameter to 25/25/25
                  =>reproduces

                  want to prevent the state. thanks,

                  • Create an application or Tool for Migrating users from Azure AD to Local AD

                    There should be an option that allow us to import users from Azure with all their attributes and write them back in a local environment. I can bet their have been businesses that for some reason, lost their Local environment (a malware attack), and would like to re-create the environment using what Azure Stored for them

                    • 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

                                    Do you have any plan against it ?

                                    • Redhat Hardened Machine Image

                                      Hi Azure,

                                      It's tough for every Linux user to the hardened machine for compliance purpose. Why it is not possible for Redhat and Microsoft to get an image which is already hardened by Redhat according to any compliance. It would be great for the financial company to get those image and deploy instantly rather invest your time on hardening each and everything on redhat machine.

                                      • 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.

                                        <In Japanese>
                                        統合アカウントのリンクの削除は、Azure Resource Explorerから操作しますが、
                                        すべてのリソース管理はAzure ポータルで一元管理したい。
                                        統合アカウントのリンクの削除もAzureポータルからできるようにしてほしい。
