  1. 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

    • An automated process to delete AzureRMS logs after a specified time period (1 year, 1 month, etc.)

      A configurable, automated process to delete AzureRMS logs after a specified time period (1 year, 1 month, etc.). This would allow my company to comply with GDPR, legal and regulatory laws.

      • 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 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.

            Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

            In this new feature (ex : Azure IP Object management) user can create IP Object (List of Ips or Subnet) this object can be added in any Azure Resources who have a Firewall (Azure SQL, Storage Account, WebApp,...)

            For Exemple:
            You create an Object "Company Public IPs" and you add in this object All your company Public IP.
            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.

              • 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…

                  • 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…

                      • Blob storage - Add a Backup & Restore feature

                        Regarding the blob, geo-replication is very cool for the HA side, but it is not a backup.

                        It would be nice to be able to backup a blob storage on another blob storage, to cover against an accidental deletion of the storage account via the portal, or from the code by an error of a programmer by the use SDK (call API) that does not control recursion (and delete calls).

                          • Pin filtered resources to Azure Dashboard

                            In Azure you can filter your resources, e.g. resource groups, by certain filters like specific tags. It would be nice to pin that filtered list to your dashboard.
                            Currently, it you filter a list in Azure and then pin it to the dashboard, it is pinned without the filters applied. This way you could pin dynamic lists, e.g. all resources tagged with your department tag.

                              • Geographic filter for web server

                                Azure can not use geographic filter for http or https.
                                If we can use that feature, we can restrict user access by country or location.

                                I hope we can use geographic filter with WAF or NSG.

                                    Would this work with Ceridian Dayforce to automate user provisioning, changes to role based access base on job title? We would like to automate the provisioning and changes to user account in AD based upon their job status, change title, manager, etc. in Ceridian Dayforce. Does this product integrate with Ceridian Dayforce?

                                      • Make Subscription transfer operation automatically change all inheritable resources

                                        Even after performing a transfer for a subscription, though it is visible at https://account.windowsazure.com/Subscriptions, the included Resource Group, Database Server, and SQL Database that belong to it are not seen at https://portal.azure.com/#blade/HubsExtension/Resources/resourceType/Microsoft.Resources%2Fresources until you go and access the “Access control (IAM)” screen and individually add the new transfer user as both an Owner and as a Co-administrator for the Database Server (under All Resources). I suggest all this be automated! I thought these settings would have been taken care of (or inherited) automatically when we initially transferred the subscription, but I was wrong. We were down unnecessarily for a…

                                        • Azure Revered Instances - Applying reservation to single or multiple VMs

                                          Azure Revered Instances - Applying reservation to single or multiple VMs.

                                          Looks like someone in Azure product team really missed ball on this. Basic things like selecting a VM to apply reservation is not even properly setup or documented. This shows poor work effort provided by the group worked on it.
