  1. Your alerts tend to hand from time to time. You should fix that.

    I experienced on multiple occasions that alerts became active and never became inactive despite the fact that the condition disappeared again.
    Having a situation like that makes an alert useless.

  3. Allow posting support messages about performance issues and malfunctions without requiring support plan

    I have many identical databases deployed to Azure. One of these databases at the moment suffers extreme performance loss, while much larger databases with the same schema work fine. This indicates technical issue in Azure. Unfortunately it is not possible to report this to Microsoft unless signing up to support plan. In other words it is not possible to notify Microsoft that something is wrong with their service unless you pay extra monthly fee for this privilege. I find this unacceptable - I am not asking for developer support - I just need to inform Microsoft about problems in the…

  4. why can't I delete the active directory

    I deleted all items in the account but am left with the one active directory that will not delete. I'm trying to clean it up, so that I can rebuild but it will not allow me to delete the active directory "test".

  5. How about providing basic administrative controls for the Enterprise

    I am amazed that there are no controls out of the box to control what and how much users can see or use in the azure portal. When you give a user access to an account the have access to see every service whether they need it or not. Also they have access to consume as much of any service and run up bills to no end. I see how this makes good business sense for Microsoft but it's a HUGE oversight for an enterprise.


    1. What we need are controls to limit what users have access to if we want.

  6. Azure GraphDB

    GraphDB is getting quite popular among the NoSQL stores. It would be nice for Azure to provide their own SAAS solution as well.

  7. The custom data for Python AP does not work..

    I provided the custom_data for LinuxConfigurationSet, and created VM using it.

    The API took it and successfully created the VM, but the script was not exceuted….

    linuxconfig = LinuxConfigurationSet('ubuntu', 'ubuntu', 'rosaMou1!', False, customdata='/home/test/cloudinitscript.txt')

    My script is very simple, just echo "Hello World" to a file.

    !/bin/sh

    echo "Hello World. The time is now $(date -R)!" | tee /root/output.txt

    This is a must feature for developer using Python.

    Using AZCopy to copy files from the local file system to an Azure File Share, please provide an option so that the timestamps of the files are copied along (like azcopy /MT, compare /w robocopy Copy, Dcopy T option).

  10. Support for CORS across all the azure services to be accessible from browser only clients

    All azure services that have REST APIis should have support CORS origin headers so that browser only java script clients can be written to access these REST services). This will help creating rich but light weight apps (e.g mobile apps) that are platform independent and do not need much back end code so more scaleable.

  15. Increase limit on number of alerts per subscription

    The limit of 10 alerts per subscription[1] seems arbitrary and low. For example, if I have a hosting plan with 2 websites, and I have 2 alerts on the hosting plan and 2 on each website, and my app is replicated in 2 regions, that's 322=12 alerts.

  16. Fire the technician that designed microsoft paint

    My idea is that you should can the person that wrote paint for windows 7. I worked 5 hours last night on a drawing which had specific colors. Upon saving, which I did in .bmp .jpg and .gif, Paint altered all of the colors. I had specific colors for a reason. Now its . Now I have to spend another 5 hours re-doing it. Think about it like this. Imagine how many customers that you've **** off that don't say anything to you. The customers that are silent are the killers. Normally I don't say anything, I just stop using…

  17. to provide all regions for free trial subscription.

    I signup to azure to test and host my server at australia region but I was shocked to see that region isn't available at all. When contacted to billing support team, they had asked me to upgrade to pay-as-you-go plan. so that they can work on enabling Australia region for me.

    However, It takes bad impression for customer like me, Where I have to wait for hours to get vm running.

  18. Make help more available

    I have a free subscription, and I am unable to connect SQL Server Management Studio 2013 to my Azure databases. I tried to find help on the site, but I was not able to find any help. I would have to subscribe to 6 months of help to get any support, which makes no sense for a 1-month "free" trial. I suggest that you make support free for trial users.
