  1. 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 ?

        • 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…

          • have an option whereby you do not require credit card verification- there are countries where they don't exist.

            Some countries' policies disallow the use of credit cards, and in those countries (e.g. my country Ethiopia) the .net environment is predominantly popular among developers. So I suggest you provide for a signup offer with out the credit card verification step.

              • 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.

                  • Manage groups on user level in API Management Services

                    Currently in API Management Services, you can only add users to a group in the groups of APIM. Ideally it would be much more convenient to add the group to a user as well. This way you can add groups to a single user.

                    And add multiple users at once to a group in the group section.

                    • Using an office 365 account as the microsoft account on the Windows Store

                      Azure AD still not supported in Windows 10 Store?

                      In one of my clients, a school with 600 laptops in Office365/ADFS, it's not possible to deploy an App because the ISV created this "Modern App" that only installs through an MSA account.

                            We are currently experiencing major issues with our server as we are unable to push new code or even look at the logs or change diagnostics issues and we cannot use the deployments at all since they just don't work (we've followed the instructions given by azure and it just throws authorization exceptions all the time).

                            Also we just bought a support plan (which we shouldn't have for these kinds of issues as it is caused by the migration which was nearly forced upon us) and it clearly states that we will get a initial response within 8 hours, after…

                            • Customize Branding - avoid login redirect by specifying IP range(s)

                              With the current Customize Branding option (Azure admin > AD > [domain] > Configure > Customize Branding) users begin on the generic O365 login screen. After entering their email address, they're redirected to their organisation's branded login screen.

                              Could you add an option in the Customize Branding settings to accept IP ranges using wildcards and CIDR notation. Access to O365 login from these IP addresses would bypass the default page and the redirect process and always load the organisations branded page.

                              Currently, the redirection is very distracting for users and also adds unwanted time to the login process. IT illiterate…

                              • Enable GEO Redundancy of SQL Server in IaaS

                                Currently there is no way to make SQL Server Geo Redundant. Specifically the storage cannot be Geo Redundant. The only way around this is to use an asynchronous replica in a regional data center. There needs to be a better alternative for this.
