  1. Add a SQL Server database in the DreamSpark subscription

    I beleive including a free SQL Database (MSSQL) to the DreamSpark subscription will be greatly beneficial in the education process of many students. Having a reliable MSSQL Server that can be used for learning SQL Server is very important. There's a MySQL database included in the subscription, but I believe having experience in at least two flavors of SQL is a lot better for students, especially TSQL if they intend to work with Microsoft technologies in the future.

  4. Apply partner credit to corporate tenants

    We are a partner and thus have access to credit to use in Azure, however apparently are unable to use this in our corporate tenant. This makes no sense what so over. Please let us use our partner credit in our corporate tenants.

  8. Provide Windows Domain & OU in Get Role API

    Being able to specify a Windows Domain to join on creating a new Virtual Machine is great, but it would be really handy if calling Get Role confirmed this information.

    I understand there are other ways of retrieving this information by querying Active Directory, but in the situation where we are using the Azure API to create a VM, it would be really convenient to be able to use the same API to then validate the status of the machine to confirm it successfully joined the domain. Querying Active Directory may not be possible if the Azure API is being…

  9. 利用明細に記載されている使用量について

    利用明細に記載されている使用量について、フィードバックいたします。

    利用明細に記載されている使用量ですが、どのような算出方法によるものか説明がなく、利用明細だけでは判断できません。
    そのため、別途課金の仕組みを確認する必要があり、不便を感じております。

    つきましては、使用量と併せて、根拠となっている数値とその意味、計算式を記載するようにしてください。

  10. Small biz doesn't have 20 users. Begins with one traveler. Paying for 20? No.

    Provide clear pricing. Does the price shown include 20 users or is it the price shown X 20?

  11. Exclude Java web app idle time from CPU time

    Java server uptime is now included in the CPU time so running a Java web app in the F1 plan is not very useful especially if the web app is mostly idle and it takes a while to start up. I wish those idle time would be excluded from the CPU time and I could keep the Java app always standing by until the real processing time exceeds the CPU time quota.

  13. Allow updating DNS record through a Web Service so it can be used as a Dynamic DNS

    We have many customers that require Dynamic DNS services, we are currently using DynDNS but it would be awesome if we could move all this to Azure.

    For example, one of our customers with 300+ locations with cheap / home grade internet connections without static IPs and a computer with a windows client that checks for Public IP changes and updates the proper DNS record using a little windows client that hits a very simple web service...

  14. Unlock the features for students.

    I was excited to see Azure offered free to students via Dreamspark, but no SQL, VM, etc??? 9 out of 10 features are locked to the student license. I understand restrictions, but why does Microsoft even offer Azure to students if they aren't going to let them use it for the best Azure features.

    Please drop the restrictions on student accounts. It will help Microsoft in the long run...students are not running businesses with these products while in school, but they might when they graduate.

    Thanks,

    Nick

  15. WHOA! Way too confusing if you're just here looking to evaluate backup alone.

    Make a KISS path for those who were referred here by Windows 2012 Server backup. Overwhelmed with choice and other options, and faced with limited research time to allocate to this particular option, gave up and left.

  16. sample as Web API /WCF/REST Azure key vault

    Please provide some sample as Web API /WCF/REST so that user can directly consume them by just changing the setting .
    It should hav all basic possible conditions and powershell which help them to set up vault and get required parameter to set in service configuration . Asking this because this is not there main task for development and if some how you can save developer time in infrastructure thing that it is more attractive.

  20. Registration Management REST Idetntifiers

    Checkout the link "https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn458822.aspx&quot;
    The REST Identifiers for Metrics (Registration Create Operations,Registration Update Operations,Registration Read Operations,Registration Delete Operations) are not correct. Remember to eliminate "s" as in registrations.create (registration.create:Correct) for the mentioned REST Identifiers for above Metrics. If used registrations.create it would probably give an error code of 404 "Entity does not exist under the Namespace".
    Thank You.
