  1. openshift as a Serive to be added to the container service, you only offer Swarm, Kube, Mesos

    This is very important, these days we deploy a lot of project with openshift which is under the hood uses Kubernetes but with all components of openshift as well as the additonal tool from openshift I wish you would consider this as part of your future plans to be added to Azure

      • Enable app password creation when MFA is enforced using Azure Conditional Access

        I'm actually implementing this for a customer and this one small thing has caused a BIG hold up.

        I find it very odd that MFA being enabled from 2 different places would have a different effect. If MFA is enabled directly on a user in the Azure Classic Portal then, the app password creation option is presented during the MFA setup process. If MFA is enabled using Conditional Access policies in the new Azure Portal then, the app password creation option is not presented at all. Both are implementing the same function essentially but the latter blocks the apps that…

        • Make subscription errors more clear. For example for subscription rejection errors, specify the reason behind rejection.

          For example if the error was about not possible to subscribe to free trial, make it clear that the reason was that the email used already subscribed to free trial in the past.

              • Azure ARM object/component/resource relationship infographic

                It would be great to have a visual infographic type representation of the relationships between all possible ARM resources/components/assets/types (I guess a schema map of sorts)

                • Choose the API version in Resource Explorer

                  Resource Explorer in azure portal often uses older API versions than are listed for the providers. Implement a dropdown-box for die right-side window with all available API versions for this specific REST endpoint.

                  • Make it easier to find SaaS and to estabish maintenance requirements

                    As a small business I don't want to take on sysadmin obligations. It's not easy to select only SaaS applications. With apps like Bitnami Wordpress it's not clear whether I am required to patch. To post a request in the Bitnami community I need an account, which I don't want at this stage because I don't know if I'm going to use them. Could you have an Saas filter and have something in the installation program which allows auto-updates? I'd be happy for Bitnami to handle server maintenance but I'm not sure if they do or not.

                    • Application Insights Slowest Operations should respond to filters

                      In Application Insights portal, when you go to the page called Performance, there is a chart that shows the server response times and a list below with the title "What re my slowest operations?"

                      I can add filters to the page, but they will only filter the chart not the list below, I think this is a bug, because when you then click on a call in the list below, it opens in a details pane, but the pane shows no data because that pane is filtered with the same filters as the chart.

                      So you need to remove the…

                      • Azure SQL - quick up/down-scale time, NO DISCONNECTIONS -> VERY COOL FEATURES!!!

                        We are using a Azure SQL P2 db, hosted on West Europe datacenter, for our production site
                        Every morning at 8.30am I’m upscaling this db from p2->p4 and 10 hours later I downscale it back to p2.

                        Two days ago I realized that the upscale/downscale process took only a few seconds instead of 5 minutes and there were no disconnections with my production site!!!
                        I’m using Azure SQL for the last 3,5 years and these two features (quick up/down-scale time, NO DISCONNECTIONS!!!) were a headache !!!!

                        I searched for what’s new documentation announcing these new features of Azure SQL but…

                                • Allow to change subnets modification with enabled vnet peering

                                  Currentl once vnet is deployed and peering is created with another subscription or vnet. Once the peering is set, it is not possible to extend,remove or add another subnets ranges to all vnets which have valid peering configured. For such if you need to modify the subnet, you have to remove the peering (might cause downtime if peering is used), do the subnet modification and recreate the peering again.

                                  • Perimit to scale down a cleardb database

                                    We can scale up a clear db database. But we can't scaling it down!!! I believe it's a shame, and that cleardb shouldn't have been allowed to provide an azure service without such a feature. Even if I understand that technically wise, it's indeed more complicated to scale down than to scale up, it really leaves a bad feeling about methods of this company (cleardb).

                                    • CoAP support for IoT Hub

                                      The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is a specialized web transfer protocol for use with constrained nodes and constrained networks in the Internet of Things. The protocol is designed for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications such as smart energy and building automation.

                                      It would be helpful if you could support CoAP in IoT Hub. It provides a lightweight REST model messaging which can be used in constrained devices with ease.

                                      COAP also provides stronger security at implementation level and will be a game changer for IoT Hub.

                                        • Allow Azure Sponsorship acounts to view real time usage of resources.

                                          If you have an Azure Sponsorship due to non-profit status, when you go to billing and usage, it directs you to the sponsorship portal where you are told how much money is used, but it does not tell any details as to why. I submitted a support desk question on this and was given the reply that we must wait for the end of the month for our monthly invoice to see that. Since we are just wading into the water with Azure, even if I tried using the pricing calculator, we won't know 'for sure' until we actually do…
