  1. SLES 15 support for ASR

    My customer hopes that SLES 15 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15) will be supported for Azure Site Recovery in the near future. I'd like you to consider that as soon as possible.

    • 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

      • office 365 group expiration

        Within the Office 365 Group Expiration setup there should be a way to set it such that all groups *except* specific ones are subject to the expiration setting. As it stands now it's the other way around; all groups or only the selected ones. In an environment where users are permitted to created their own groups (something I was told even Microsoft allows) you really need the expiration feature enabled by default. But there are certainly use cases where as an admin you will want specific groups exempted from this setting.

        • 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…

          • Feature of testing if alert mail or message would be sent correctly in Azure Monitor.

            When I create an alert rule in Azure Monitor to send an email, I want to test if the email would be sent and received correctly.

            Now, it doesn't seem to have this feature in Azure Monitor.
            So it is better for me if there is this feature.

            • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Allow changing the Service Principal associated with AKS

                        Currently it's impossible to change the Service Principal associated with Azure Kubernetes Service.
                        You might want to change the service principal if you're doing big changes in your Azure AD or moving your Azure Subscription to another directory.

                        • For each resource creation save the date and the user

                          Usually when you create a resource you do not know when was created and by whom, the information in logs is available only for a determined period of time and then lost, that is something that will be very helpful to include in the Overview section.

                          • 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.

                            • Azure Policy - Support for RegEx in Match Conditions

                              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.

                              • Use different Identy as Service Administrator when creating subscriptions automatically

                                We are using New-AzureRMSubscription to automatically create subscriptions. After creation we see that the Account Owner is made Service Administrator of each subscription that is created via this way.
                                There is a risk that, when the credentials of this account owner are confiscated, the attacker takes over control, as service administrator/ (service owner), of all the subscriptions.
                                This risk can be mitigated by having the possibility to assign a different identity as service administrator for each subscription created.
                                If we create such an subscription via the enterprise portal, we already have the possibility to assign a different identity as service…

                                • Add support to Azure AD B2C for the on-behalf-of flow.

                                  In order for a web API to call another downstream web API as the user, Azure AD B2C needs to support the OAuth on-behalf-of flow.

                                  According to the following reference, this isn't supported in B2C: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-b2c/active-directory-b2c-apps#web-api-chains-on-behalf-of-flow

                                  I also cannot find this feature on the Azure Roadmap.

                                    • Need more detailed level of firewall rule option to allow access from Azure Insight resources such as ADF,SA etc.

                                      Azure SQL Database is a major output resource for Data Factory(ADF) and Stream Analytics(SA), but these PaaS applications do not have a static IP address.
                                      Therefore making it impossible to setup a robust Firewall configuration.
                                      We understand that [Allow access to Azure services] is designed to handle this sort of situations, but it is way too loose from security point of view, since it allows access from all the resources on Azure including those are NOT owned by the users.
                                      which is a risk and to achieve more secured environment, many customers demand for a more detailed firewall option, which…

                                      • Improve Free/Trial/Entry level offers

                                        Azure is prohibitively expensive for small businesses and new/poor developers.

                                        £150 for 30 days is not long enough to get up and running and to make a viable website/app to cover the costs.

                                        Suggestions:
                                        -Allow users to use the free credits over 12 or 6 or even 3 months.
                                        -Or return to your previous offer with free monthly credits for a year.
                                        -Or offer SSL on the shared plan. (sites without SSL are not an option)

                                        £50-£60/pm for a basic website with custom domain and SSL is ridiculous.

                                        I feel my only option is to abandon Azure and look at…
