  1. You talk about a free Azure plan to test and develop for a single developer, yet you provide ZERO links to get started with a free account.

    Please make available a CLEAR way to start the free account you offer. I have tried following the multiple links you provide to get started with an Azure account, and NONE of them give an option to start with a free account.

  2. Allow instructors to use multiple AzurePass subscriptions

    I am an instructor who wants to be able to use Azure in several classes in our program to promote learning. It has come to my attention that to activate a new Azure pass subscription, you have to have a new email address. Apparently you cannot apply a new AzureU subscription to an existing account.

    I am, therefore, concerned:

    First: I will have to rebuild my class infrastructure each time my subscription needs to be refreshed.
    Second: I will have to approach my institution for a new email address each year.
    Three: Or I can use a special (concocted) public…

  4. Show additional information about authentication methods on the end-user Security Info section

    The self service portal for MFA methods does not show enough information for users and supporters in our company to determine which Authenticator App entry is 'old' and can therefore be deleted. Users do have sometimes multiple Authenticator App entries configured as MFA method. For example when they need to add the authenticator app again in case of issues.

  5. Provide very simple email account service

    Moving to Azure from other web-host - I need very simple email service to receive and occasionally reply to small # (<100) messages per month. This was built-in support from webhosting company I'm trying to move from. Don't need spam engine api (SendGrid), and setting up VM manually seems like overkill. (provide a blog on this?)

  6. Give customers the option of registering for invoice payment when they sign up

    Why does Microsoft insist on credit cards when customers are activating their monthly credits included in their subscriptions?

  7. Disable a dialog "Storage Access Policy Detected" in Storage Explorer when using an access policy and SAS URL.

    I would like to disable a dialog, which shows "Storage Access Policy Detected" in Storage Explorer.

    I specified access policies for Storage Account containers and generated SAS URL with the policy.
    In Storage Explorer, I use SAS URL to access Storage Account. Then when I try to upload a file, the dialog appears.

    Could you please add the ability to disable dialogs to Storage Explorer?

  8. Last 4 digits of credit card on invoice

    If Azure invoices are being paid automatically from a credit card, the last 4 digits of that card should appear on each invoice. I manage an Azure account for my company; service charges are billed to my personal card, and I submit a monthly expense report. Company rules require that all expenses charged to a credit card must have the receipt with a credit card number. Because there is no credit card number on the Azure statements, I have to print out my credit card statement to prove that I used my card to pay for the monthly Azure charge.

  9. Make Azure more available and affordable to Office365 Home Subscribers

    Azure offered a 30 day Trial (too short) in which I had no time to finish the on-line course. To make Azure more attractive and more users to join and to learn how to use it properly with proper training is to offer to Office365 Home subscribers perpetual limited system time.
    .
    How could this work:
    .
    Office365 offers 5 licenses, 60 min Skype and 1TB Disk Space.
    Azure could be offered to only 1 of the users to try and train as long as the Office365 subscription is paid.
    So for example there would be a 60 day Azure…

  11. Add Configuration Manager console to Azure lab template

    Could you add Configuration Manager console to Azure lab template?
    Configuration Manager console is not installed in site server even after the lab is created in Azure. Lab is created with the steps in below article.

  12. Azure Verizon CDN: Origin Shield Management on the Portal

    Origin Shield feature is available on VDMS network, however Azure is not advertising it.
    It is still possible to enable it by raising a support ticket.
    It would be useful to be able to manage it on the portal and not involve the Support team.

  14. 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.

  16. to be able to have a new trial account during formation

    Following trainings on EDX about Azure and Office 365, but not full time so cannot complete the whole cursus within a one month period.
    And cannot have a new trial later on whan I come back for learning (when I have time).
    It's not easy to learn efficiently with this constraint.

  17. Support JSON schema style $ref components in templates

    Idempotent JSON based resource manager templates are a great idea. However, sophisticated deployments use numerous sub-components over and over. JSON schema understands this is a requirement for building real world JSON where elements repeat in different places, and has a $ref mechanism - like the variables and parameters, but a way to define a JSON object and use it elsewhere, repeatedly.

    This would allow, for example, a security rule to be defined in one place, and used in several NSGs.

    Consider, for example, a classic three tier DMZ, App Server and DB Server Zone, implemented with NSGs. The zones clearly…

  18. Azure Functions @ The Edge

    It would be nice to see an offering that is designed to run Azure Functions at the edge similar to AWS Lambda @ Edge, Fastly's Edge Compute, or Cloudflare Workers.

    Azure Functions today seem to be much more catered towards adhoc data processing pipelines and not really web centric use cases. In addition to the latency benefits of being able to run logic at the PoP, some examples of use cases would be:


    • Running A/B testing at the edge

    • Custom serving logic for different geos

    • Authorization logic

  19. Azure Verizon CDN Management integration

    Enable Verizon CDN management on Azure native portal with no redirection to external portal.

    All configurable elements should have an equivalent Powershell AzCLI and Az module, which is currently absent.

    We need capabilities to enable building Verizon CDN using infrastructure as a code method.
