  3. Add the ability to define common entrance and exit methods for triggered WebJobs

    It would be great if you could use Attributes or something to define methods that will always be ran before or after a triggered function for WebJobs. This would be very useful for something like event logging, where I want to log when a function was triggered and when a function has completed anytime a function gets triggered.

  4. Best backup software for Windows 8.1?

    As many of you probably know, Windows 8.1's built in file history is not a substitute for a standalone backup program which can back up everything.

    What Softwares are out there? My biggest requirement is that it be able to make incremental system backups on a scheduled basis.

  7. Allow referring to Azure websites or VMs, etc. when defining ACL for an endpoint

    Currently we can restrict who can access an endpoint by using ACLs based on IP address ranges.

    I suggest being able to say things like:
    This port can be accessed by these azurewebsites by this VM, etc.

  8. Make it possible to pay for support on a call-by-call basis

    Currently, too expensive to want to commit to even 6 months of developer level support for Azure. I would be willing, however, to talk to a developer for say $10/hour or /30 minutes to try to get expert developer help on troubleshooting tough things.

  9. Azure CTI (Computer telephony interface)

    I believe most of the business has a Call center application which is interfaces with telephone ie they have dedicated RJ45 lines and 1800 number which is interfaced to their service or sales application by either through Cisco CTI or JAVA CTI or through vendor supplied hardware ie PCI slot connected telephone lines.

    if we have an Azure CTI infrastructure,I believe it would be easy to make call center apps to Azure

    Thanks

  11. Add HTTPS support to the 'stopped' Azure website placeholder page

    Some of us enforce HTTPS on our websites 100% of the time. Therefore, our users may have our website bookmarked in their browser which includes 'https://'.

    If we stop our website temporarily for maintenance and one of our users visits our website during that time via HTTPS, they'll get a warning message saying the connection is insecure prior to being redirected to the "This site is currently not available..." placeholder page.

    I believe the "This site is currently not available..." placeholder page that's displayed when an Azure website is stopped should be served through both HTTP and HTTPS…

  12. Don't update Android documentation until you launch the new Android SDK 2.0

    Almost all Azure Android documentation require Azure Android SDK 2.0 but there are not any official link to the new Android SDK 2.0.

    You can not do neither the old examples nor the new examples because you do not have the SDK.

    You can not do anything

  13. notification message that the Azure account has been disabled

    Dear

    My first experience with Azure Backup was relatively good, just the account lockout procedure for verification of authenticity was absurd, message below the email I received the notification:

    We have a small problem. His signature ' free trial ' and its services have been disabled on Thu, January 8, 2015 GMT 23:52:34 because we discovered evidence of abuse or fraud.

    Question: How can it be a "little problem" If there is evidence of abuse or fraud?

    improve the message not be accused of abuse or fraud unless they have absolute certainty.

  14. Give notifications like a configurable pop up of what is new in Azure - Services; VMs, Etcs

    The idea is to give more direct feedback of what is new in Azure, currently the end user as knoladge of what are the new services available by accessing the service and all the rest is hidden.

    The idea is to create a configurable pop up where eatch user can configure for exemple:

    I want to be notified when new services are available in Virtual Machine services

    or

    I whant to be notified when new cloud services are available.

    This is just like a pop up with information of new releases for the services that i selected.

  20. Provide a means to mark an IaaS Virtual Machine as unhealthy or 'not yet ready'

    Currently when the infrastructure decides to reboot a VM for maintenance there is some kind of internal probing done by the Hypervisor to determine when the VM is healthy and then to reboot VM's in other fault/upgrade domains.

    The conditions under which a VM is considered healthy is too optimistic.

    Our database servers need 5-15 minutes to 'warm up' before being 'healthy'. This means the infrastructure is taking down both our primary and secondary virtual machines in a time frame that overlaps with both their warmup periods, bringing down our production application.
