  1. while you are creating a new service display the price per month. I'm afraid of paying too much.

    Hi,
    when I create a new service (es. storage, virtual machine), I tend to select the smallest service cause I dont see how I'll pay for that service.
    Otherwise, I can see service price and I'll tend to choice a bigger service.
    Thank you.

  2. Allow completing the Point-in-time restore process through the portal

    The current point-in-time restore process requires dropping out to another tool, such as SSMS, in order simply to rename the current and restored databases.
    That seems clumsy.
    It would be a lot more elegant if you could simply rename it through the portal, or, even better, once the restore is completed, click a button to replace the existing database.

  5. Test Azure Authenticator properly before releasing it

    Test Azure Authenticator properly before releasing it. Specifically:
    - When upgrading to new versions preserve the accounts from the prior version
    - Do not require a reboot for the application to function correctly (on WP8.1 on Lumia 620 it most certainly does)

  6. After spending over an hour trying to find a way to log a support request with no phone number or email address ?

    Would it not make sense to clearly display in your support page an option to email support I appreciate it makes sense to get people to click a link a follow a process but what if that appears to be broken as it's for me

  7. Allow creation of Minecraft Server on Azure Dreamspark

    You should allow the creation of a Minecraft Server on the Dreamspark Azure plan. Why? Out of all the people who use Azure, student developers are the ones most likely to want to host a Minecraft server. It seems odd to allow enterprises to create Minecraft servers but not students. You already allow us to host web apps, and the amount of bandwidth that a Minecraft server takes up is pretty minimal. If you were really worried you could restrict the amount of people allowed on the server. Microsoft Azure is such a great service for us to learn how…

  8. Add dates to the Feedback blogs

    Add dates to the Feedback blogs. I see status like "planned" and "started" but no dates associated with the status. It helps in my planning if I have a general idea of why a new feature may be available. Maybe something like .. Planed for 3rd quarter of 2015 .

  9. Please add an Alert option for HTTP 5xx

    I have options here to set alerts on my Mail, but I would really love to receive alerts about HTTP 5xx, because my very own code throws Http Response codes of 501 when a database or external service is unavailable or something weird happens, or when there is an unidentified bug causing problems, I would really like to be notified about that.

  10. provide the capability for user to get the boot log. When VM startup failed, we can get some idea of what happened.

    Right now, we have no way to get the boot log of a VM. When VM launch failed, we have no idea of what happen. I would suggest you provide the retrieve log capability in the portal, similar to AWS's.

  11. Why is the Azure preview portal feature limited?

    Why is the Azre preview portal feature limited? Fx Azure backup and site-2-site VPN is not available. CSP customers are forced to logon to the preview portal, where all Azure services/features are not available.

  13. Rework the UI of Azure to allow BizSpark subscription members access to other spending limits

    As the Founder of a tech startup we were visited by Microsoft and sold the concept of the BizSpark programme and ease of use for Azure. Unfortunately this hasn't been the case. We each get $150/month of subscription but upon deployment yesterday at 6pm we burst our spending limit in 12 hours with zero usage. I understand this isn't Azures fault but I've spent hours trying to determine the root cause, jumping between accounts to no avail. You need to make your products easy to use or we're heading to Google or Amazon.

  14. Is there any plan to have the temp disk of V1 and V2 VM to be a data disk for user to store data?

    Is there any plan to have the temp disk of V1 and V2 VM to be a data disk for user to store data?
    Because when we create different size VM, we can only increate the CPU and memory.
    The disk size is increased, however it’s temp disk for OS paging and can’t be used to store data.

  15. ASR with vCenter 8.3.0 feature

    We update ASR with vCenter from 8.2 to 8.3 then found the username and password format was changed from domain\username to username@domain
    We found the same issue on forum https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/36ce86df-3974-4562-80bc-62e06aef8cfd/cant-add-vcenter-server?forum=hypervrecovmgr
    Is it any specific date to fix the issue?

    無法設定認證,發生錯誤,無法修改這個使用者,因為另一項作業正在進行中。
    有這個錯誤發生了,但我無法自行排除,也不知道目前進行到什麼程度了。
    應可知道目前的處理情況,什麼作業、何時開始處理、何時可以完成等等。

  18. Please send critical notifications through subscription emails

    When there is a service disruption expected and you guys fully aware that some maintenance could cause disruption to your customers, advice you please email to the customers who have subscribed and have all there live servers up and running. So that we are aware and can give an answer to our client immediately or at least alert them in advance. Please don'e expect your subscribers to have the azure portal on 24/7 and note down all the notifications that popup.

  19. IO

    I suggest improving IO performance, for example I use a D1 virtual machine and just logging in to a clean windows 7 takes several minutes, any IO operation takes forever, I tried giving it more power with a D2 virtual machine - but there was no visible difference ... the IO performance is horrendous, we tried to use it internally in our company for testing purposes but it is way faster to spin up a virtual machine than to log in via RDP

  20. Change account admin to colleague in different country

    There are variations of this in other feedback, but I figured it might help to be specific. We have had to deal with this issue twice.
    We need the ability to change the account administrator to another colleague within our company but in a different country. We have transitioned our project twice, both times to teams in different countries and Microsoft insists on a new subscription and full migration just because the account administrator is from a different country.
