  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  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. 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.

  8. 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…

  10. Import bacpac locally should be 1 click experience

    If one wants to create a copy of a deployed database on his local Sql Server 2014 he needs to be prepared for quite a process described here -

    http://sql-articles.com/articles/azure/issues-restoring-sql-azure-bacpac-due-to-querystorestalequerythreshold/

    But this MUST be a 1 click experience!

  11. Windows Azure for studying and testing purposes

    I'm IT Professional, I'd like to use Windows Azure for studying and testing purposes: as private person, this helps me to increase my knowledge on Microsoft Cloud Platform. I already used Trial Period but it isn't enough. I'm asking if there is a way to pay little fixed yearly fee for this purpose only ?

  15. 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…

  16. CREST API, standardize unit of measure please!

    Hi,
    I'm working through the MSDN documentation (bad) located here:
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/partnercenter/mt427350.aspx

    I pulled the list of all Azure metered items from the API. I'm now looking at how to pull this into our financial system. I did a quick query to see how to bring in the units of measure, the “unit” field returned seems to be inconsistent and not well understood.

    In the dataset I get from your API you return units that ranges from “1M Queries” and “1,000,000s” [seconds? Nope, transactions] and “1,000s” or “1000s”? This seems a little messy and not managed. Building an API into this…

  18. Include the option to change Virtual Network in the Web Interface

    Please offer the ease of changing a virtual network on a virtual VM, just like we can with VMM or Hyper-V. For stability reasons this should only be limited to connect to different virtual networks in stead of the default value of the dropdown with affinity groups, networks and regions...

  20. Please make it possible to combine IUR accounts

    Please make it possible to combine IUR credits for those of us who are eligible for multiple IUR accounts. Working with so many different IUR subscriptions with caps isn't as feasible as we want to.
