  1. 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?

    • Machine Learning workbench connection request

      Machine Learning workbench requires Internet connection, but please also support connection via VPN and via Express Route.

      Also, I want you to be able to use some functions even in an environment without internet connection.

      ----In Japanese---
      Machine Learning workbench はインターネット接続が必須ですが、VPN 経由での接続やExpress Route 経由での接続もサポートしてほしい。

      また、インターネット接続がない環境でも、一部の機能だけでも使用できるようにしてほしい。

      • 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 :)

            • 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.

              • 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。

                • 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,…

                        • About specification that co-administrator is removed when Subscription Ownership Transfer

                          When Subscription Ownership Transfer is executed, A Service Administrator will also be changed to the destination account and a Co-Administrator is removed.

                          It may happen in the case of the destination account is already registered as one of the Co-Administrators, because a single account cannot be registered as both a Service Administrator and a Co-Administrator.

                          I request an additional option which gives a source account administrator to leave the co-administrator setting or not.

                          • Add a SQL Server database in the DreamSpark subscription

                            I beleive including a free SQL Database (MSSQL) to the DreamSpark subscription will be greatly beneficial in the education process of many students. Having a reliable MSSQL Server that can be used for learning SQL Server is very important. There's a MySQL database included in the subscription, but I believe having experience in at least two flavors of SQL is a lot better for students, especially TSQL if they intend to work with Microsoft technologies in the future.

                            • 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…

                              • 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

                                • Add option to pool all five accounts for BizSpark into a single account of USD 750 / month. This is crucial for Startups.

                                  Jumping between accounts is not a practical way to manage the BizSpark credit spending. Please provide this ability to pool all together in a single USD 750 /month credit. As our startup is scaling up USD 150 / month gets used up rapidly and cause service to go down.

                                  • Provide SignalR support for Azure Apps Cordova Client

                                    At the moment, the Azure Mobile Apps client library for Apache Cordova doesn't include support for SignalR hosted in an azure mobile app. Please add this so we don't have to write an additional wrapper for the SignalR part where the rest of the API services are already included in the library.

                                    • 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

                                      • <Request>Please be sure to be able to delete batch trigger like other connectors

                                        Currently it is impossible to delete batch triggers by design and it is necessary to recreate Logic Apps once. Please be sure to be able to delete batch trigger like other connectors.

                                        現在、設計上、バッチトリガーを削除することはできません、一度Logic Appsの再作成が必要です。他のコネクターと同様にバッチトリガーも削除できますようにしてください

                                        • Application Insights multiple environment feature

                                          Add possibility to create under one Application Insights more environments (every environment could have own instrumentation key). The main reason is the clarity and the ability to compare the environment.
