    • Allow running headless Chrome (or other browser) in Function apps or Web apps

      Basically it's this:
      https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/gcp/introducing-headless-chrome-support-in-cloud-functions-and-app-engine

      Now obviously Google has a bit of an advantage here what with Chrome being their own tech but there are so many blogs out there with people talking about complicated Docker solutions just to run headless Chrome in the cloud.

      It would be great if we could get a solution where we could run Puppeteer in much the same way, or allow web apps to run Chrome without having to be inside Docker and we could manage a pool of Chromes without having to manage Docker as well.

      • Add Azure Backup Extension for FreeBSD

        It would be great to also have the Azure Backup Extension for FreeBSD. This would allow backups for FreeBSD but also for appliances based on FreeBSD. (example: pfSense)

          • User list - View all

            Have a 'View All' option for the Azure Active Directory user list, rather than having to hit 'load more' over and over.

            • fix hot fix patches that disable the environment

              Hot fix patches that cause 36 hour outages make this an un-viable solution for my team and my client.

              • Backup Azure Active Directory

                I would like the ability to backup my Azure Active Directory. This could be a feature provided by Microsoft, or allowing a configuration file to be exported locally.

                If my users maliciously deleted application registrations among other things, there is no easy way to restore this currently.

                • No Confirmation pop-up when we RE-Size VM

                  When we re-size VM in Azure portal, As soon as we select the new VM Size it starts resizing. Ideally it should give a confirmation pop-up to confirm the resizing to be done. As it can lead to the accidentally resizing of the VM. ( It happened in my case). So i request MS to add the confirmation pop up before the actual resizing should start.

                  • Enable access to PDF invoices for additional users/groups for Azure Germany

                    Right now, only the account administrator can access PDF invoices within Azure Germany.

                    This Microsoft article describes in detail how to enable access to monthly PDF invoices for additional users/groups:

                    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/billing/billing-manage-access

                    But according to a statement from a Microsoft customer support engineer, this is not available for Azure Germany.

                    Why is that?

                    • Enable configuration of how long MFA can be remembered within a Conditional Access Policy.

                      A configuration option to how long an MFA can be remembered within a conditional access policy.
                      Would enable a longer window for MFA challenges on registered devices (eg Outlook on Mobile devices)
                      While allowing a narrow window when signing on with browser access to from an unknown device.

                      Being able to configure how long MFA is remembered per policy would provide more flexibility to protecting the user identity but account for more known and unknown device scenarios.

                      • Reserve target IP for Azure Site Recovery

                        Currently in Azure Site Recovery there is an option to configure the static Target IP address for VMs when they are failed over using ASR.

                        However, these Target IPs aren't being reserved by Azure DHCP and can be consume by any other resource in the same vNet and Subnet.

                        The Azure Site Recovery currently pre-creates the Availability Sets and Replicated Disks when ASR is configured for VMs. We need the ASR to pre-create the NICs for the VMs at this state to ensure the Target IPs are reserved for use by the ASR during a failover.

                          E-mail notifications for "Impossible travel to atypical locations" reporting. Presently admins need to watch this portal screen all day/night to see if there are new entries. It would be much better to see an e-mail notification about it.

                            • Allow a VM to be added to an availability set without recreating the VM

                              Currently after you have created a VM you are not able to add this to an existing or new availability set. It would be great if this was available function to be completed at any point during a VM's lifecycle.

                                • Network Security Group Counter logging - Source IP

                                  Using NSG Diagnostics combined with Log Analytics gives us much needed visibility of our rule hit counters, great stuff!

                                  Unfortunately there is no information within the counter logs to inform us the source of any such hits, which really limits the usefulness of this information.

                                  Any chance that could be added to the diagnostics logging output for NSGs?

                                    • be able to setup a Azure Backup to protect my Sharepoint Online data with a large retention

                                      We really need a way to protect SharePoint Online with a large retention time (3 till 6 months). Let Azure Backup kick-in for this point so we are able to set the right RPO ( Recovery point objective ) for this service.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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…
