  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

    • 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…

      • allow for multi-byte (unicode) characters to be allowed when using the RADIUS authentication method in on-prem MFA

        Its currently not possible for users to authenticate via on-premises MFA if the given user has a unicode (multi-byte) character in their password like a £. This becomes inconvenient especially when MFA is being used as an authentication method for remote access and there aren't any other remote access methods available that don't use MFA.

        • Available Disk Space monitoring and alerts are not sufficient

          The current available tools for visualizing and alerting on available Disk Space for Azure Virtual Machines should be expanded. In the Dashboards module, there is no Live Tile that would allow you to see a Virtual Machine's disks and available space. You can get some data through custom queries, but these queries are manual-refresh only and are not truly suited to a live Dashboard environment.

          Similarly, there is no way to create an Alert for low disk space in the current Alerts module. In Alerts (Classic) there was a % Free Disk Space - this is not sufficient because it…

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • Azure Policy - Support for RegEx in Match Conditions

                Right now, the "Match" and "notMatch" conditions only support # for digit placeholders and ? for letters. This is okay, but it would be much more useful to support regex expressions. This would needed for define complex naming policies and tagging standards.

                • 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…

                    • Whitelist all Microsoft services in Storage account Firewall

                      Whitelist all Microsoft services including Azure Data Factory when the "Firewall and Virtual Network" option is enabled on Storage account and "Allow trusted Microsoft services to access this storage account" option is selected.

                      Similar option is already available on Azure Data Lake store, where we can access Data Lake from Data Factory pipelines after the firewall option is enabled.

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 cost/billing management transparently and easily transferable.

                            **The case** :
                            Trying to switch from Pay-as-you-go to a dealer – COMPAREX AG.
                            The process is tedious and slow and at the end I arrive with a lot of questions regarding the safety of the transfer of all the resource groups of production applications! See here for an example :
                            https://feedback.azure.com/forums/34192--general-feedback/suggestions/35347903-make-subscription-transfer-operation-automatically

                            **What is needed as a solution** - Instead of forcing the users to move around production environments with tons of configuration - apps, permissions, Azure AD, individual IAMs, etc. - in order to switch to another payment model, just make the payment and cost/billing management underneath transferable!

                            Nobody…

                                    What is the IMAP server for Gmail?
                                    Incoming connections to the IMAP server at imap.gmail.com:993 need SSL. The outgoing SMTP server, smtp.gmail.com, requires TLS. Use port 465, or port 587 if your client begins with the plain text…

                                    • We NEED URL support in NSG

                                      We need NSG to support URL as many vendors use global based load balancer. we need URL in NSG to avoid keep adding new IPs in the NSG.

                                      • Improve/align OAUTH2 documentation

                                        AAD's manual describes the common grant flows used by OAUTH2, however, there is some problems with the documentation in my opinion.

                                        If you implement applications you might experience that:

                                        1) the ADAL documentation does not align with the AAD OAUTH2 manual, thus you may not know exactly which grant flow is behind the ADAL APIs, nor which ADAL APIs you have to use in order to use a particular OAUTH2 grant flow... or how to appropriately register an application in AAD for either scenario.

                                        2) the terminology differs between the AAD OAUTH2 manual, the app registration portal itself, ADAL APIs…

                                        • Document resource owner password credential grant (ROPC)

                                          AAD supports Resource Owner Password Credential grant (ROPC) behind the scenes, however, its not documented in the AAD OAUTH2 manual.

                                          In certain use cases, there is no obvious OAUTH2 grant flow and ROPC might become the solution. In such situations, its better that Microsoft documents it, how to properly use it in a somewhat secure manner, and when to absolutely not use it, rather than to let people shoot themselves in the foot with an undocumented feature.
