  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. 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.

  6. Make a Free Tier for each Azure Service

    It would be extremely useful if Microsoft Azure had a Free Tier for each Azure Service.

    For example, like Azure Search, Web Apps etc.

    It would be expected that such a Free Tier had a limited resource usage. However, for developers it would be much easy to get started exploring and learning different Azure services, as well as demo or lobby for proposal to utilize Microsoft Azure as basement for any new Application these days.

  7. Fix account verification for SMS

    Fix the account verification system for billing - every time I need to setup a subscription I'm prompted to open a trouble ticket as you are unable to send an SMS to my device's phone number (US based, valid phone number).

  8. Fix archived usage statements to include rate when subscription is open licensing

    In Azure, subscriptions can be funded in a few different ways.

    +MPN Benefit
    +MSDN Benefit
    +Pay as you go
    +Open Licensing skus

    When a subscription is funded with Open Licensing skus, archived (or, closed billing cycles) "Download Usage" function does NOT include a rate column and therefore does NOT state what your billed usage was for that period.

    The current period "download usage" does, but that is limited utility.

    Previous cycle usage is important to my company and I'm sure many others, because Azure expense will not be accounted for when purchased but rather then used.

    Strangely, PAYGO, MPN and…

  12. Provide documentation for clearDB

    You outsource MySQL to ClearDB and provide no documentation on how to get it working.

    ClearDB requires SSL and in order to use SSL with Azure you need a Basic/Standard account -- So in other words there's no free support for PHP and MySQL.

    ClearDB refuses any connection that's not SSL. How are we supposed to set this up? The ClearDB documentation is completely useless as it doesn't even mention Azure setups.

    I can't even believe somebody has to tell you this. If you want to be serious about being a cloud provider you're going to have to do a…

  15. option to disable logging of input and output from custom api app

    in cases where a custom api app's input/output is only required for the flow within the logic app but not required for archival or tracking purposes, it would be nice to be able to configure it in the logic app so not to log these inputs or outputs as a possible optimization.

  17. Add a link to the Azure Script Center on Documentation pop-panel

    There is no link to the Azure Script Center (or I was not able to find). It should be located on Documentation pop-panel in any case.

  20. Microsoft lets customers submit bugs and issues

    I understand that the support is big part of the revenue, but when customers are facing problems due to changes made by Microsoft that becomes REALLY irritating!
