  1. Improvement of EA portal

    Currently once the administrator sets "AO view charges" Enabled, every Account Owner come to be able to view the all charges of every subsections.
    We demand the improvement about the authority setting so that the Account Owners can see their own subscription's information only.

    • Need a function to URL path rewriting in Application Gateway

      Currently, I know Azure Application Gateway has a function for redirection of URL path based.

      Now, I need a function for rewriting URL path during redirecting a request to backend server.

      For example, When Application Gateway received a HTTP request to http://www.contoso.com/test/*, it redirects the request as /images/* to backend server.

      In other words, I want to set a URL path for backend server in PathRuleConfig in Application Gateway.

          • Provide a local emulator for Azure Event Hubs

            When developing solutions for Azure, it is very useful to have a local development experience. This is good for development, integration tests, and validation of approaches. When using Azure Storage, Cosmos DB, or Service Fabric, there is a very good local emulator story. But for Event Hubs, there is no local emulator story, so all development and integration testing needs to use the real thing, which causes a number of issues. For example, integration tests now need to provision an isolated Event Hub, and then ensure that it gets torn down.

            It would be much better if we had a…

              • Please remove the dependency on storage account per each devtest lab

                1. One storage account is created for each devtest lab, may be provide option to use existing storage account while creating devtest lab.

                2. Please provide a ability to choose an image from Managed Images in the subscription when creating vms in devtest labs. (rather requiring to have devtest lab image)

                3. Remove the requirement to copy custom .vhds into each devtest lab storage account to use them for VM deployments.

                • Recovery Services Azure to Azure between different regions

                  Hello ! At this moment we can fail over in "Azure to Azure" model only between region's locations. For example if source resource group is located in West Europe we cannot use USA as a target location. Six months ago or more there was a disaster fail of a whole region - unfortunately, I don't remember what was it. However, you will find this event in Azure event logs on the portal. I kindly ask Azure backend team - would you be so kind modify "Azure to Azure" mode and include different regions for target and resource groups please ?…

                    Configure Azure Storage Firewalls and Virtual Networks (preview) function is not supported now. many of my customer wants to restrict any unexpected access to keep their resource safe. In the cloud, it is important that security is guaranteed, so we strongly request that this function can be used.

                    • First class WebSocket Service

                      For years now Azure has been piecing together what Hanselman would call lego brick sized services. Ingesting messages? Event Hub. Filtering and aggregating messages? Stream analytics. Reporting? PowerBI.

                      The one piece that I find missing is a way to get real-time data out of Azure directly to web clients. For thicker clients, they can subscribe to service bus but what I'd really like is a serverless websocket server. Events could be fed into it from services like cosmosDB's change stream or stream analytics or event grid then forwarded out to consumer browsers.

                        • Add capability to add external users with existing Microsoft account to new portal

                          The classic portal provided the capability to add users with an existing Microsoft account to your Azure AD. This feature has been removed in the new portal, and apparently the only way to add external users as members is to add them as a guest, and then run some Powershell scripts to make them members.

                            • Add more properties to Get-AzureRmVMSize / REST

                              Can you add more properties to Get-AzureRMVMSize. This applies to the REST API too.

                              When creating a VM and selecting the size, there are many more properties shown in the portal such as IOPS, total NIC and the price, than is returned by Get-AzureRmVmSize.

                              It might be an idea to also create a webpage for looking up / selecting VM sizes that works similarly to VMWare's Hardware compatibility list: https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php

                              • Selection of snapshot retention period by "Instant Recovery Point & Large disk support" Azure IaaS VM Backup

                                We want to specify the snapshot retention period on a virtual machine basis.
                                However, it is currently registered on a subscription basis and snapshot retention is 7 days which we cannot change.
                                We need more flexibility like mimimun snapshot retention is 1 day or set the retention by each VM.

                                • Allow NSG for VPN Gateway Subnet

                                  We want to connect several devices with our Azure VNET via the VPN Gateway. Therefore the VPN Gateway is configured for P2S connections.

                                  We want to restrict the devices so that they can only communicate with certain other devices.

                                  To implement this functionality we need to assign the VPN Gateway subnet a NSG. Furthermore this NSG should be dynamic, because the IPs provided by the VPN Gateway to its clients clould not be predetermined.

                                  Currently NSGs are not supported for VPN Gateway subnets as well as there is no way to control IP allocation for connecting devices.

                                        Grant unlimited access - Custom Vision

                                        In Custom Vision API, we have limited api access to 1000 calls per day. How to increase the custom vision api access count to infinitive?
                                        Is there any pricing tier introduced?

                                        • Increase listener limit for Application Gateway

                                          Application gateway has a very low listener limit (20 listeners / certificates). This severely limits it's usefulness for multi-tenant/domain applications where a web farm / service hosts many endpoints. IIS itself has no such small limit, but due to constraints on certificate deployment in cloud services, Application Gateway is the only clear path to wide scale SNI based SSL hosting. With it's low limit, it does not come close to meeting our use case. I would suggest the limit be removed or set to a very high limit like 10k+ so many certificates could be bound to host many different…
