  1. Improve Azure DevOps's Pricing page

    1. Under "Azure Pipelines", please change the text from "1 hosted job" to "1 Microsoft-hosted job". Everywhere in documentation, it's referred as "Microsoft-hosted", not "hosted". Make it consistent, be more explicit what you meant.

    2. "Individual Services" and "User Licences" tab aren't directly related, so why arrange the columns side by side? Wouldn't it be clearer if they are arranged one at top, one at bottom? That way, it gives context to user that we have service A, B, C. And once you have established that mental context (that you have multiple different services) in user, when they scroll down,…

  2. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. RBAC Role for Reserved Instance creation WITHOUT Owner role on the Subscription

    RBAC role created so a group can be added for the single purpose of Reserved Instance creation, without keys to the kingdom (Owner rights). Capacity and Procurement would not need such keys as they would only be creating RI’s, following Least Privilege Access.

  8. show the Cognitive Services free tier in its Pricing page

    The Cognitive Services pricing page shows that every Cognitive Service call is chargeable https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/cognitive-services/. But the Pricing Calculator at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/ shows that there is a Free tier. Please standardise your documentation.

  9. PIM add support in the Graph API to query Azure resources roles audit logs.

    We can query Azure AD roles in PIM for our conformity report but have to log-in to the portal manually for PIM roles on Azure Resource.

    Works for PowerBI Admin Roles but not for "Contributor" role in Subscription X.

  10. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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

  16. Audit logging on Azure Files

    We would like to move our shared files to Azure Files but we can't as we are regulated to audit access to our files.
    We need Azure files to have the same audit capabilities as Office 365.

  17. CDN

    There needs to be a way to apply service tags to Azure CDN. When applying NSGs or firewall rules it would be beneficial to be able to use Service Tags to target the CDNs.

  18. Set TLS 1.2 or 1.3 as default for Azure Automation Account

    Currently Azure Automation runbooks start a powershell session that has Its security protocol set to SSL3 and TLS 1.0 by default.

    Since there are alot of security risks involved with using TLS 1.0 we would like to have this version set to 1.2 or even 1.3 by default.

    Since Okta has disabled TLS 1.0 and 1.1 per 1st of August 2018 this is also causing errors in Azure Automation runbooks, where we specifically need to specify a later version in each runbook.

    PCI DSS 3.2 also prohibits the use of TLS 1.0 after June 30, 2018.

  19. Azure Storage account/ CDN feature request: Whitelisting CDN Edge servers for Storage account

    Azure Storage account feature request
    Currently, we cannot restrict IP addresses on our origin storage account as this breaks communications between PoP servers and the storage account.

    The only way to do this is to restrict access with Token auth/ SAS token. However, someone could still access our storage account if they got a hold of our SAS token.

    We would like to have Azure Content delivery network added as a "trusted microsoft service" to include all IP blocks that Microsoft, Akamai, and Verizon may use when attempting to access the storage account.
