  1. Invoicing for Azure MarketPlace solutions

    We need to get invoices from Azure Marketplace’s 3rd party solutions. (country=Turkey) Currently, we couldn't have reached the invoice from Azure portal or any other place (https://account.microsoft.comhttps://commerce.microsoft.com).

    The invoices are required for tax reasons. If we couldn't get invoices from Azure Marketplace, our tax department asked us to buy those solutions from on-prem.

  2. Create a tier that only charges for CPU cycles used, not idle cycles

    Many instances are mostly idle; and surely your underlying VM technology can use those idle cycles for running other people's jobs.

    Instead of charging for the idle CPU cycles, create a pricing tier that charges more for CPU cycles that are actually used, and less for ones where machines are idle.

    This would be useful for very bursty workloads.

  3. Billing - Make it Clear

    Make Azure Bills clear on the Microsoft Billing Hub: https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders#/

    The Azure subscriptions are listed by the Offer Name. It was very confusing to understand why I was being billed random amounts for Visual Studio Subscription. Also, add the Azure Invoice number so I can match things up.

  6. Create Azure App Service Plan V3

    Premium app service plans are still running on Dv2 series compute. Dv3 series have been available for a while.
    We could use a boost in computing power.
    It would be amazing to have the D8s v3 available out of the box also (8 cores, 32GiB RAM). Not all apps scale out well!
    And we don't want to use Virtual Machines if we can avoid it.

    Any timeline on those developments?

  7. Incorrect StartDate and EndDate while Import Database

    Using Import Database option and importing a bacpac from the storage account to Sql Server when the import is in progress if we go to Import/Export history the Start Time is greater than End Time (Start time is 1 sec greater than End Time). Also while the import is in progress how come the End Time is having a value.

  8. create D0 and D0.5 optimised compute pricing steping stones

    We have a lot of users signing up to our service daily and are struggling with processes that can time-out on the A0 or A1 cloud services on azure due to the CPU performance.

    We only need 768mb of ram so going to an A1 actually is not that cost efficient for us, and certainty an A2 is definitely not effective - basically we need to scale out to many small, but fast instances.

    The D1 series CPU's are 60% faster but also have SSD plus more disk and ram than we nee, and (I assume) aren't core shared. These…

  9. Allow to use UDF(user defined function) inside a DocumentDB's Stored Procedure

    In DocumentDB, It would be very helpful if the SP could use a UDF, so the code will be in one place and more organised.

  11. Clearly indicate when the customer is committing to pay

    I was charged a third-party service fee during a free trial. While I don't object to paying for the software, I was surprised by the charge, because the Azure console did not explain clearly I was committing to an ongoing fee and ask approval for that charge.

    Azure needs to be transparent in pricing, including Azure fees and third-party fees to assess the true TCO for a cloud service. Show a complete fee schedule for the configuration and allow a review and Accept Transaction step before charging a customer.

  13. programatic access to pricing data.

    I would like to be able to ask what the price of azure service X is in location Y, using a script, or program, rather than having to surf to a web page.

    Thanks,
    David.

  14. azure is getting too expensive

    I am noticing more and more rivals are offer more for less. WordPress users have had it rough with no database for a long time. While that is slowly changing, its way too slow.

    Time to realize that Azure not an island, the world is very competitive.

  18. Set Kusto tab title

    it will be very helpful to be able to set the tab title. when working with multiple tabs it is not a good user experience to use Ctrl+Tab to switch tabs and look for the right tab.
