  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow students to deploy virtual machines for free (to an extent)

    I believe that students should have the ability to use higher level features, like deploying virtual machines and document storage systems for free to a point.
    You could restrict it to allowing a limited number of machines overall, and force them to be in a specific pricing block, like the lowest tier. A similar system could be applied to document storage systems.
    This would allow students to deploy systems in a test environment and practice configuring them in a system where they could access it at any given time. And not be restricted to hardware that they have laying around.

  5. 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.

  6. One year free trail

    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

  9. 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.

  12. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Increase Monitor Alert limitation in each subscription

    Below see this page.
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/monitor/

    The number of Alert limitation is 100 in one subscription.
    But customer wants to use more alert by Azure Monitor for Metric.
    Customer know they can request to mitigate the limitation.
    But when they want to configure Azure Metric Alert, every time they don't want to request to Microsoft for mitigation.
    Customer is not familiar with Azure, and it is so many cost.

    Could you increase the number of limitation?

  17. Student accounts are very limited.

    Student accounts are very limited. They are designed to develop applications and host them, but forget the possibility of incorporating virtual machines and test the universe of the big data.

  20. Allow Startup Owners to configure Bizspark credits among their team members.

    Microsoft's Bizspark idea is an wonderful concept to support new start-ups. I had the opportunity of talking to a support guy who had given me the details of the offer. But I have a slight difference on the subject. Now Microsoft wants that more users be members of the program where by each organization can have 5 members each given a $150 credit. But first point here is most of the members may not need that kind of a credit. Second the start-up as a whole which wants to have a production server to host their website. Then in that…
