    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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。

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • Upload size limitaion on Application Gateway

                I find that upload content size limitation about 28.6 MB on Application Gateway.

                This seems to be dependent on IIS configuraiton, <requestLimits> maxAllowedContentLength attribute, but there's no way for users to configure this.

                So, having configuring IIS including upload size of Application Gateway would be fantastic.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • [REQUEST] Ability to delete one of deployments in a resource group more easily by one simple Azure CLI command.

                      We can create a deployment by using "azure group deployment create" command with a json template exported from Azure Portal. On the other hand, there is no Azure CLI command to delete one of deployments and linked resources (such as NIC, Public IP, OS Disk...) in a resource group at the same time.

                      Please enable us to delete it by one simple Azure CLI command with a json template for resources we try to delete.

                        Application Gateway WAF hasn't function creating custom rules and operating management UI for regular or custom rules. Also, we hope functional enhancement for WAF logs. We'd like to get the detail message if alert is happen.

                        • whitelist ip addresses for web app deployment slots

                          It would be very helpful if deployment slots could be optionally restricted to a white list of IP addresses (or a range). It is a very common business requirement for the non-production versions of a web site to be restricted to business employees for the sake of testing and quality review. The "development" branch, for example, is often not designed to be used by the public and may also be used for remote debugging - both of which make it unfit to have a public address with no restrictions.

                                • 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.

                                  • Provide cost/charges (not only use) to subscriptions like BizSpark

                                    I have a BizSpark subscription

                                    Since the change in the conditions of bizspark, which took place in September 2016, I have no place to see the breakdown of spending on azure.

                                    There is a monthly mail that specifies the summary cost in the bizspark subscription.
                                    The first one sent me, contained in addition to the summary, the breakdown of use and cost.

                                    But the rest of the mails do not specify the detail and I confirmed with your support team, that there is no place to see them again..

                                    At www.microsoftazuresponsorships.com I only see the expense summary, but the breakdown…

                                    • 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?

                                      • 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.
