  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.

      • 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

          • 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.

              • Prevent Creation of Classic Machine Learning Web Services so Tags can be Enforced

                Prevent Creation of Legacy Machine Learning Workspace Commitment Plans and classic web services so Tags can be Enforced.

                Our organization sets a Tag policy on resource groups so that newly created resources within that resource group will inherit tags. The main tag is 'Department Code', and is used for Chargeback for resource usage. Any Machine Learning 'classic' web services, that were created using the Machine Learning Studio portal will be created outside of the standard tagged resource group and thus, will not inherit standard tags used for Chargeback.

                We also need a migration method for existing classic web services to…

                • Query Log Analytics metrics data using APIs

                  The Monitor API does not return time-series data for Log Analytics Metrics.

                  Steps to reproduce.

                  1. Go to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/monitor/metrics/list and click "Try it.
                  2. Enter a resource ID for a Microsoft.OperationalInsights (Log Analytics) that contains a Platform Heartbeat metric.
                  3. Enter "metricnames" and "Heartbeat", be sure to click "+" after
                  4. Click Run

                  The Timeseries collection is empty.

                  When I run a query like the following through analytics I do see data:

                  // See the last heartbeat for each computer in the last hour

                  • Azure MFA needs anti-phishing features such as include location details and notification to users about new devices

                    Users can sometimes approve MFA notifications on their device because they do not know whether it is their device authenticating or a hacker who has phished their credentials. Therefore, to help users know why they are being asked to accept authentication include additional details such as the application name, IP address and location in the MFA prompt. Apple includes the location and a map of the location in their own two-factor implementation.

                    Additionally, users should be notified with an email any time a new device is used to authenticate to their account.

                    • Allow aligning fault domains and update domains in an availability set

                      In certain cases I want to manage the availability of data replicas across a cluster of machines, and can endure more downtime for greater predictability of the nature of downtime.
                      An example is Kafka, where I can handle a large portion of machines going down so long as I can make predictions of how they'll be correlated so I can plan how I lay out topic partitions to keep a majority of partitions up.

                      With the way availability sets are currently set up, I can limit my downtime in case of a fault, or in case of an upgrade, but…

                            In your Azure resources Firewall (WebApp, AzureDB, NSG,...) you specify this Object to allowing access.

                            If tomorrow you need to add a new public IP you just need to add this new public IP…

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • In azure storage explorer change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store)

                                    In azure storage explorer, it'd be nice to be able to change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store), this feature would be very useful as we check if our processes went through sometimes by looking at the last modified date of a specific file, while we have this automated sometimes data scientists and other users can quickly tell if something is not up to date.

                                    Is this feature available? This only works only for Shared Access Signature but not ADLS

                                    • Create PowerShell cmdlets to manage Hybrid worker group settings

                                      Please, provide PowerShell cmdlets to manage Hybrid worker group settings like "Run As credential".

                                      Currently, I have to use the Azure Rest API in order to change the RunAs Credential used by the Hybrid Worker Group.

                                      It would be nice to be able to do it using AzureRm cmdlets that I can run in the same Azure Context as all other AzureRm cmdlets.

                                        • 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…
