  5. Simplify and document Azure naming standards

    I propose creation of a single naming standard policy for Azure services.

    Currently different services have different policies (some are upper/lower case, some are only lower case, some allow dashes, some don't, some are globally unique, etc.) and the policies are hard to find without actually creating something.

    Naming standards should be as uniform as possible and available in a single location for reference.

  6. Imagine this - Subscribe to a free trial to evaluate Azure as a commercial propostion for customers and actually get support...

    We're an IT reseller looking at offering Azure to our customer base. I was designated a point of contact for technical queries. They have yet to respond to any of my emails. I'm rapidly getting dis-interested in even trialling this product let alone recommending it to my customers

  7. Provide Pip wheels for common Python packages

    Installing Pip packages that require system binaries, like Scipy and Numpy, is a headache on Azure because you currently have to set up a local Win32 Python environment and compile your wheels manually. Azure should provide a PyPI server that has pre-built wheels for all the common Python packages for the architecture on Azure web apps.

  8. Add storage account creation date to api or StorageService properties

    My particular scenario is that in automated testing, we may end up with stranded storage accounts that are not deleted by the test run. I want to write a tool that will deleted them if they are beyond some days old. But I don't find any way to do this programmatically. There have been other cases where I wanted an api for this as well.

  9. Provide azure usage information without 5 day lag

    Currently, daily reports have a warning that everything may be up to 5 days out of date. This is really bad for people trying to plan Azure burn at the end of a commitment period!

    Please provide more up to date reporting.

  10. Provides standard VM sizes (Hardware configuration)

    It is really wired why Microsoft is providing non-standard VM configuration (VM Sizes in Azure)
    Usually, in IT, we use RAM configuration like 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB of RAM. Why we can't find this in Azure, instead we find 3.5, 7, 14...
    Please, can you provide standard VM sizes that fit the IT needs

  12. Context-sensitive help

    Azure offers a huge list of resources with rather obscure icons. It is impossible to find what the words mean. To take a simple example 'storage account'. What is it? What does it do?
    There is no way to get any help direct from the portal.
    Pushing support then diagnostics takes you out of context. And finding the help topic for an item is near impossible.

  13. Phone Extension Field when 2FA is required

    Some Organisations do not offer a Direct Dial Phone Number for their Employees. The employees are reached via switchboard and extension number. Currently in Azure there is no field to put in an extension number.
    AWS do offer this facility and this has meant that it is easy for them to be reached on their desk phone. If we could include this facility it would be really helpful.

  16. Flexible tagging of azure assets (e.g. with customer ID/name) which shows in usage detail report

    I need more information in the usage detail report.

    We intend to rebill customers their exact usage. I also want to maintain as few subscriptions as possible (e.g. multi-tenant Azure subscriptions).

    As the usage statement exists today, this is impossible. If I intermix customers under a single azure subscription, there's no good way to break out the customers.

    I need either flexible TAGGING of all azure services (e.g. vm1 can be tagged as anything, i would tag with a customer id, and this would appear in the usage details this would be super nice), or at the very least the…

  17. Azure AD - ADFS "Server"

    Since we can replicate user object from ad to aad, it would be nice to just "enable adfs feature " on azure ad. So that we no longer need to host adfs on-premise.

  19. Support RBAC at Service Management API

    Enable access to Service Management API with role based access control (RBAC).
    Now, API access account can full controls (contain delete). This is very dangerous. We can't avoid this situation now.
    So I'm desiring to be able to safety access to API by RBAC.
    (examle: access by readonly account and collect vm list by batch program)

  20. Provide a Way to Cancel my Profile Completely

    I don't understand why after a free trial period, I cannot cancel my profile? Why do you maintain my information with my home address and email. I may at some point in the future be interested, but not today. I should be able to cancel my name and personal information from your system.
