  1. Application Insights in Canada regions

    We have restrictions that all our resources should be created in "Canada" region.
    As a result, we are not able to use Application Insights.

    • Allow to connect to VPN from command line

      We have more deployments in Azure and each has its own VPN. Currently it's not possible to connect to VPN via command line. That's why full automation is not possible.
      We have to open the network settings, click on the VPN connection and hit Connect button.

      What we would like to see is to download not only the exe that installs the VPN, but also a script that provides ability to connect & disconnect to/from the VPN.

        • Ability to get "Network In" and "Network Out" traffic volume for ExpressRoute

          We have several requests from the end users for this feature. Can you add the feature to be able to trace the network traffic volume both "Network In" and "Network Out" for ExpressRoute to each peering (public, private, Microsoft peering)

          It will help the customer to detect the root cause if the spike of a certain peering happens.

          • Make Azure AD Domain Services available in CSP subscription

            Currently Azure Active Directory Domain Services are not available for CSP subscriptions. Firstly because you can't deploy classic VNets in CSP subscriptions and this service is required to setup AADDS. Secondly because AAD is not available for CSP subscriptions to manage from Classic Portal and according to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-domain-services/active-directory-ds-faqs there is no Powershell cmdlet to turn on AADDS. This means you can't use AAD features like Kerberos authentication in CSP offerings.

                • Backend heath status of Application Gateway

                  We deployed the Application Gateway on the subnet where NSG's In-Bound rules is set. In the result, we got the status of backend health is 'unknown'. We got the 'Healthy' status when the NSG doesn't associate to subnet. Even if NSG's In-Bound rules is set, We'd like to confirm the backend health.

                  • azure zones dns-forwarder

                    Please extend DNS zones solution to add forwarding & client features to implement the following in PaaS instead of with VMs:
                    https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates/tree/master/301-dns-forwarder

                    Use case: use azure dns to forward dns queries to 168.63.129.16 & between subnets. Enterprise DNS would forward to Azure DNS. VNET has Azure-provided name resolution (*.internal.cloudapp.net). In this way Enterprise DNS could dynamically learn of a PaaS offering on VNET.

                    • Increase the ARM default Core Quota per region

                      [ENG] Please increase the default limit for VMs/Cores in Azure Resource Manager.

                      The current ARM default Core/VM limit per region for an Azure in Open and even some Pay-As-You-Go subscriptions is only 10-20. This is not enough at all to deploy a few VMs, and it prevents customers from expanding their service towards rapid business growth and urgent requirement. More flexibility and convenience should be provided as default.

                      [Japanese] Azure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値引き上げ依頼

                      Azure in Open や従量課金プランのサブスクリプションについて、現在のAzure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値は、10 から 20 程度です。
                      この既定上限値では、十分な仮想マシンを作成することができず、お客様の大切なビジネスの急成長や必要性に対応することができません。
                      既定上限値が緩和され、柔軟に便利に利用できるよう改善よろしくお願いいたします。

                      • Need for RBAC permission specialized for "Local Network Gateway".

                        At the moment, we do not have a permission specialized for RBAC.

                        As its background, we want to limit the amount of the permission which we assign to our user.
                        Since there are too many permissions when we add "Microsoft.Network/*", our user needs a permission specialized for Local Network Gateway.

                        We can set following permissions (Actions and NotActions) by setting up the NotActions listed below.
                        However, in order to avoid unexpected permissions when a new feature is released, could you kindly add specialized Local Network Gateway permission?

                        [Japanese]
                        RBAC の権限として、ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化したものがありません。

                        各ユーザーに対して、必要最小限の権限のみを与えたいと考えていますが、
                        "Microsoft.Network/*" を付与する方法では付与される権限が多すぎるため
                        ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化した権限を必要としています。

                        以下のように NotActions…

                          • Migrate Backup / Site Recovery vault between Subscriptions

                            We have several customers that want to move their vaults from a webdirect subscription to CSP. Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. For longterm backups there is no other way than leaving the vault in the old Sub.
                            Are there plans for making vaults more flexible?

                            • Ability to delete a Public IP on ExpressRoute Gateway

                              I request for an ability to delete Public IP on ExpressRoute Gateway.
                              It would be great if I can delete a Public IP assigned to ExpressRoute Gateway due to enhanced security.
                              I understand the VPN Gateway needs public IP to connect with onpremises VPN device, but I think it is unnecessary for the ExpressRoute Gateway since it is a closed network.
                              If the ExpressRoute gateway doesn't have a Public IP, we can reduce the risk of unexpected inbound traffic from the Internet.

                              • WAF on Application Gateway have a function to allow some exceptional access for prevention mode

                                It would be great if WAF on Application Gateway have a function to allow some exceptional access for prevention mode.

                                Now, Web Application Firewall feature would be available as part of Azure Application Gateway.

                                Currently, WAF on Application Gateway seems to not have a function to exclude from blocking access by any condition.
                                So, I would like to request to add this function for WAF on Application Gateway.

                                • Internal load balancer Log Analytics

                                  Log analytics currently works only for Internet facing load balancers.
                                  We need this very urgent for our Internal facing load balancers!

                                  • Resource group hierarchy

                                    Create a portal view that would show all resources tied to a VM in a tree view instead of a static list - or as a separate view.

                                    • Power BI dataset fresh as an Azure Data Factory activity

                                      Allow Azure Data Factory to refresh a Power BI.com dataset as an activity that can be controlled as part of a larger pipeline. For example, ADF processes new inbound files in a time slice. Then refresh Power BI's output once all up stream dependants have been handled. Currently Power BI can only handle refreshing as a schedule which is completely disconnected from ADF.

                                      • Allow special characters in Storage Account naming (especially "-", "_" or ".") for readability and easy identification.

                                        Allow special characters in Storage Account naming (especially "-", "_" or ".") for readability and easy identification. It is very hard to work with all lower case naming that has to be run together without special characters. This would also allow for more versatility in the Azure naming space since SA naming is "shared" throughout the entire Azure instance for all Azure clients.

                                        • Bi-directional console access to VM's.

                                          Most needed feature request which would help us during incidents with VMs would be a proper bi-directional console access to VMs.
                                          At the moment console access is only one way with screenshots & serial output, but it does not help when any config change is needed to get recovered.
