  1. B1S Windows Server is not a viable VM

    B1S is just too small of a VM to be viable. Provisioning it in Central US takes 27 minutes, and then when it finally starts everything is so unbearably slow that you can't do anything. Takes minutes for Task Manager to start and paint itself. I don't know why it's being offered when it's so underpowered that it is really impossible to use.

    • ServiceNow Enterprise App: Add funtionality to provision AAD Photo attribute to ServiceNow photo

      Currently many attributes can be provisioned in a ServiceNow Azure Enterprise app, but AD Photo is not an option. That would a great thing to be able to.

      • Set alerts in a Resource Group

        Currently there is no option to set alerts to control or monitor expenses in a subscription by a Resource Group. So, you have to set alerts in each VM and other resources you have.
        Normally, if you manage all resources of a client (or concret environment) in a Resource Group, It would be very useful to control or monitor the expenses by alert configuring at the Resource Group level.

        • Configure point-to-site VPN from Function to VNet

          Functions are great. VNets are great. Point-to-site VPN is great. It would be even greater, if you could configure a function app to talk securely with a VNet through point-to-site VPN. Just as you can with a web app.

          • AADB2C: List of applications random order / no ordering

            The list of applications under "Azure AD B2C Settings \ Settings \ Applications" and also on "Azure Active Directory \ App Registrations" seems to be in random order and it is not possible to order the list, it would be great if the list was possible to order, just like the list in "Enterprise Administrations" for example.

            • 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.

              • Creating custom RBAC roles through the Ibiza Portal

                It'd be great if there was a UI to create new RBAC roles through the Ibiza Portal.

                • Ability to delete a Public IP on ExpressRoute Gateway

                  I request for an ability to delete Public IP on ExpressRoute Gateway.
                  It would be great if I can delete a Public IP assigned to ExpressRoute Gateway due to enhanced security.
                  I understand the VPN Gateway needs public IP to connect with onpremises VPN device, but I think it is unnecessary for the ExpressRoute Gateway since it is a closed network.
                  If the ExpressRoute gateway doesn't have a Public IP, we can reduce the risk of unexpected inbound traffic from the Internet.

                  • 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.

                      • 30 days trial is too short for exploring the wast feature set of Azure, it should be based on some cost based on what features get used

                        It's like the way you do now without the time limit. Give me the credit and give me the time to use it. As a developer, I need time to get to explore the features.

                            The free trail is so short to try build cloud base service, and for sure it's not good idea to pay money while development

                                • Increase VSO free build minutes per month

                                  Currently, we get 60 minutes for free, but they are easily consumed in our case because we have a gated check-in policy that allows check-ins only if the build is successful. So every time we check something in, we have to build the server.

                                  • 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!

                                    • Reconsider first level Translator pricing

                                      For the Microsoft Bing Translator service, the first jump from free tier is to $40 (flat minimum). I have to say that an increment of $40 for the very first paid level, and always charged whether I use it or not, and even if I'm under the free level, compares very poorly with the Google Translation service, which does not have a free level but charges partial subscription fees based on actual usage levels. So there's no jump from $0 to $40 to $60 for Google, even if it's not used, instead it might be $1 or $15 or $45…

                                      • rename Load Balancer name in Azure Portal

                                        There should be an option to rename Load Balancer name in Azure Portal. We follow naming convention of each resources in Azure and there is high chance of typo's sometimes when configuring resources manually.

                                        Recently I created a Load balancer for HA/DR solution and later realised there is typo in Azure Load Balancer while creation. So I have to delete the load balancer and create it again which caused some delay to setup whole solution. So i think there should be a feature to rename resource name in Azure after creation.

                                        • Offer Custom SQL Database Tiers

                                          Offer the ability to customize a SQL Database Tier. For example, I have 500 clients that are migrating to the cloud. Azure is great. Each client only needs the S1 Tier. Except 250GB is not nearly enough space. My clients need at least 2TB and this feature should charge per GB like SQL storage does.
