  1. azure vault textarea for secrets from web portal

    I was trying an option in azure webportal to upload a file or enter multi-line value as secret, which was possible using azure cli. Is there a plan of changing the input field to text area or even support the functionality similar to what i try from azure cli using this command

    az keyvault secret set --vault-name vaultname--name secretname --file C:\Users\vaultuse\file.pem

    • Please allow the removal of 'Inactive' accounts that had no prior usage in the EA Portal.

      Currently there is no way to remove an 'Inactive' account in the EA Portal, there is only the option to select the 'active' checkbox which hides any inactive accounts from view. It would be nice to have a feature where we can remove any 'Inactive' accounts that had no prior usage in the EA Portal.

          • AAD Connect - the default setting of autoupgrade function

            We proveide the infra of cloud identity for many cusutomers.
            Some cusutomers asked us about the behavior of "AADC autoupgrade".
            We felt that this function was very useful for a customer, but some customers were concerned because they could not notice about doing upgrade.

            So we think it's more better that the function's default setting will be able to choice enable or disable in configuration wizard.

            Thanks

                • users want to set up the MFA Setup Wizard later

                  In the MFA release plan of a large company, thousands users are impossible to actually "force" from the day.

                  So, the user needs a period which setting for the MFA can be skipped, before force setting period.

                  In the period, it provide a selection such as "set up later" in the MFA setting wizard at the initial sign-in.

                  if someone did not have a mobile device on that day,
                  if someone wants to ask questions about MFA, etc...
                  they can not access any Office 365.
                  becouse, even if you set a policy to skip MFA on the LAN, the MFA…

                  • AAD/VB2C Unable to read or write Custom Attributes on User from GUI

                    There are two major issues:

                    1) AAD/VB2C Unable to read or write Custom Attributes on User from GUI in B2C.

                    2) There are lots of default User attributes available as part of the default Graph API schema which are not visible on Attributes sections and cannot be used in the policies or in B2C

                    • Description of Security Group not Synchronized

                      When I create a security group in the Azure portal, the synchronization will be synchronized to my Azure Dominservice AD. The description is not synchronized.
                      If I use one of the groups on a VM to assign permissions, I can't see the description. That makes it harder to find the right group. Especially if the person who created the group is not the same as the person who grants the permissions.

                      • Allow paths in Application Gateway rules to be defined as regular expression

                        Currently, Application Gateway rules support only path matches with a wildcard at the end of the string.

                        For us it means to rework our routing strategy as the first part of our route is dynamic /<domain>/<controller> (eg. /sales/process). The controllers are shared among domains. Domains can be dynamically created, what disallow us to directly use the current feature to separate only 'process' controller to standalone backend pool.

                        We would prefer to be able to define something like '/[a-z]]+/process.*' as a matching criterion.

                        • Need a function to change a format for X-Forwarded-For in Application Gateway.

                          Some web server uses the X-Forwarded-For header as only IP address format, not IP address:Port.

                          So we would like to choice the format for X-Forwarded-For header by web server requirement.

                          For example, "Require ip" in RemoteIPHeader directive on Apache should be IP address format.

                              • Templates Preview Editor -> align with deployment editor

                                When you go to the templates preview and go to add or edit a template you get just the pure text box. However if you edit a template during a deployment view, you are treated with a text box plus the supporting side panel that breaks your template out into parameters, resources, etc.

                                It would be nice to have that in the pure templates preview as it would probably drive my editing there better instead of in VS like i'm currently doing (keeping me in the portal even more as cloudshell did for me!)

                                    You're advertising instances that I can't even find how to create in the portal! Very frustrating. How do I get a B1S instance?

                                    • "Your credit card has expired" email should name the Azure account affected

                                      I received an email with the title "Your credit card has expired".
                                      I have multiple Azure accounts & the email did not give the name of the account. It did give the subscription Id, but that's not very helpful if I don't know which account it lives in.

                                      • Set up a server for western Canada

                                        So who would i talk to about getting-setting up a closer server? Would it be your sales team? Not sure how to go about this but i do not understand why there is no server for all of western canada yet you guys have plans to set up two servers in south africa, and two more in europe which already has 6? In an area as small as europe do you really think they need 8 servers? In comparison to Canada, the second largest country in the world which has only two, that couldnt be much closer together mind you,…
