  1. Allow provisioned VM pricing to be altered to add software licensing without reprovisioning

    As an Azure VM user/administrator, I would like to be able to take an existing VM priced at one rate, and "upgrade" the pricing to include licensing for products installed after provisioning. I would like this to provide flexibility (e.g., if I want to install SQL Server on a Windows priced VM, without losing install/configuration work already undertaken on that VM and without independently licensing SQL; or if I want to add BizTalk to a Win/SQL-priced VM). I would also like this to allow simplified compliance (e.g., a Windows-priced VM is found to have SQL Server installed after provisioning), to…

    • ensure all documents that have AZ CLI examples also have PowerShell Examples

      There are many pages of documents that have only AZ CLI examples for them. For a PowerShell user this is not exactly helpful and reduces the capability of IT Pro's & Dev's to get to grips with these newer offerings

      Therefore please make it a requirement to have PowerShell Examples listed next to any AZ CLI examples so that those that are comfortable with PowerShell

      I have raised a GitHub Issue to have this tracked as well https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/13162#issuecomment-411907216

      • Make DomainDNSName,NetbiosName & Samaccountname attributes avaialble to public to use AAD Join without AAD Connect

        We use okta for synchronizing accounts to Azure AD.

        We plan to use AAD Join for our windows10 devices, it works well with AAD Connect(As AAD Connect synchronizes attributes DomainDNSName, NetBIOS name & Onpremisesamaccoutnanme)

        Okta could not update these attributes, I want to find a way to update the attributes(by using PowerShell or GraphAPI?).

        And also would like to know if there is any possibility to sync MSDS-Keycredentiallink attribute to on-premise without using AAD Connect so that I can use windows hello.

        • Feature Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

          Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

          In this new feature (ex : Azure IP Object management) user can create IP Object (List of Ips or Subnet) this object can be added in any Azure Resources who have a Firewall (Azure SQL, Storage Account, WebApp,...)

          • Azure Policy For Preventing Public Blob Containers

            There are no ARM REST API properties for Blob containers which means we can't create an Azure Policy for not allowing people to ever create public blob containers.

            This is how every AWS breach has occurred due to accidentally setting storage to public.

              • Prevent the 'failed' state when VMSS autoscaled to subnet namespace size

                VMSS easily turn 'failed' status with following step and cannot recover without delete and re-create the VMSS.

                Repro step is:
                1. Create Vnet and subnets. The address space of subnet for VMSS is /27 (for example)
                2. Create AppGW(Small/1instance, no publicIP) in Vnet
                3. Create VMSS under AppGW
                ... set the Autoscale rule as Min/Max/default : 2/25/2
                ... In my case, I created Standard_DS1_v2 size VMSS
                4. change Autoscale parameter to 16/25/16
                5. change Autoscale parameter to 25/25/25
                =>reproduces

                want to prevent the state. thanks,

                • Set schedule to delete deployments history

                  Currently, The deployment history limits are 800 per resource group so if we will use many resources for long term, we might be upper limit.
                  I hope we can use a feature that setting schedule to delete the history.

                  • Provide a description field for Azure Key Vault secrets

                    When creating a 'secret' in Azure Key Vault you mainly got Name, Value and Content type fields to populate. It would be great to have a Description field as well to provide some verbose description/notes about the particular secret.

                      • AAS as a Data Source.

                        Hi Team,

                        Currently Azure is not supporting AAS as a datasource. Suppose i created the Datamodel in AAS and i want to use same in another AAS model, it is not working. Can we have any idea when it will support AAS as a datasource

                          • Block Azure MFA (cloud) Enrollment from External Networks

                            I feel like I have been to the end of Google and back and thought I'd just reach out to this feedback hub.

                            We would love the ability to block Azure MFA (cloud) enrollment from external networks with Azure Conditional Access Policies or another method.

                            It doesn't look like the "MFA Setup" page is a "Cloud App" to build conditions on...

                            My other thought is the ability to build out a dynamic group based on if a user has enrolled, but the Azure Dynamic group queries seem limited at this point.

                              Right now, the "Match" and "notMatch" conditions only support # for digit placeholders and ? for letters. This is okay, but it would be much more useful to support regex expressions. This would needed for define complex naming policies and tagging standards.

                              • Available Disk Space monitoring and alerts are not sufficient

                                The current available tools for visualizing and alerting on available Disk Space for Azure Virtual Machines should be expanded. In the Dashboards module, there is no Live Tile that would allow you to see a Virtual Machine's disks and available space. You can get some data through custom queries, but these queries are manual-refresh only and are not truly suited to a live Dashboard environment.

                                Similarly, there is no way to create an Alert for low disk space in the current Alerts module. In Alerts (Classic) there was a % Free Disk Space - this is not sufficient because it…

                                    Please provide one client for azure (or maybe also office365) with the possibility to expand this client with features.

                                    Actually we have to install many small Clients for intunes, several for OMS and so on.

                                    Maybe it could be one intunes managed client-Software and if there are for example on one machine OMS-features needed, then we can just choose which Feature on which client and the client downloads and installs everything. Same for AIP, Dynamics Plugins and so on.

                                    Thanks, Martin

                                    • Allow running headless Chrome (or other browser) in Function apps or Web apps

                                      Basically it's this:
                                      https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/gcp/introducing-headless-chrome-support-in-cloud-functions-and-app-engine

                                      Now obviously Google has a bit of an advantage here what with Chrome being their own tech but there are so many blogs out there with people talking about complicated Docker solutions just to run headless Chrome in the cloud.

                                      It would be great if we could get a solution where we could run Puppeteer in much the same way, or allow web apps to run Chrome without having to be inside Docker and we could manage a pool of Chromes without having to manage Docker as well.

                                      • Internal load balancer vnet peering

                                        Currently when you connect 2 VNETS using a global vnet peer you cannot access internal load balancer between the networks. E.g if you have a resource behind a load balancer in vnet1 and you try to connect to the load balancer from vnet2 then you cannot connect.

                                        This causes problems for SQL Server Availability groups running over 2 regions meaning you need an internal load balancer in each region. If you then have a web farm spread over the 2 regions only web servers within the region hosting the listener address can connect to the listener. This basically removes one…

                                        • Add HA feature to Public IP Standard LB

                                          Azure Standard LoadBalancers with Public IP in front can't have backend pools with HA loadbalancing rule configured !!
                                          We deployed NVA firewalls in the backend of Public IP ALB and everytime for inbound connection we have to change the config of ALB for adding new Port !!!

                                          HA should be an option there to send all Ports to backend so backend can take care of filtering in our model firewalls

                                          Thanks
