  1. Google App Engine is the best in terms of free tier for developers. I am sure Microsoft can afford it but they don't. That is too bad.

    Google App Engine is the best in terms of free tier for developers. I am sure Microsoft can afford it but they don't. That is too bad. They will likely lose new developers to google.

    • Allow provisioned VM pricing to be altered to add software licensing without reprovisioning

      As an Azure VM user/administrator, I would like to be able to take an existing VM priced at one rate, and "upgrade" the pricing to include licensing for products installed after provisioning. I would like this to provide flexibility (e.g., if I want to install SQL Server on a Windows priced VM, without losing install/configuration work already undertaken on that VM and without independently licensing SQL; or if I want to add BizTalk to a Win/SQL-priced VM). I would also like this to allow simplified compliance (e.g., a Windows-priced VM is found to have SQL Server installed after provisioning), to…

      • ensure all documents that have AZ CLI examples also have PowerShell Examples

        There are many pages of documents that have only AZ CLI examples for them. For a PowerShell user this is not exactly helpful and reduces the capability of IT Pro's & Dev's to get to grips with these newer offerings

        Therefore please make it a requirement to have PowerShell Examples listed next to any AZ CLI examples so that those that are comfortable with PowerShell

        I have raised a GitHub Issue to have this tracked as well https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/13162#issuecomment-411907216

          • DO NOT DELETE SERVICES IMMEDIATELY WHEN A SUBSCRIPTION RUNS OUT

            see [REG:115031012492134] support reference for full history of this issue

            Hi,
            It would be great if you could answer the following questions:
            1) Please show me where on the azure web site that it states that cloud services are auto deleted immediately if a subscription is disabled for any reason.
            2) Please let me know if you also delete cloud services automatically without warning “by design” if a credit card expires or fails dues to funds shortage or the like?
            3) Why do you want to seriously annoy your customers by designing your system like this????? That is a ridiculous…

              • Support to TripleDES and DUKPT on KeyVault

                In Payment Industry, cryptographic keys that are used to encrypt PIN from credit/debit cards are TripleDES (sometimes with DUKPT) based. Currently, KeyVault only support RSA keys.

                Please add support to it.

                • SLES 15 support for ASR

                  My customer hopes that SLES 15 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15) will be supported for Azure Site Recovery in the near future. I'd like you to consider that as soon as possible.

                  • Support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI

                    Please support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI. Currently we have to make incredibly manual slicers for it, or else download the data via powershell, programmatic split the Tags into individual fields, and then reupload the data to be analyzed separately, instead of being able to do this straight out of BI.

                    • Move resource(s) to another location.

                      I wish I could move resource(s) to another location just like I can move it now to another Resource Group or Subscription.

                      For example, I just created a new Function App, with a new Storage Account and put them in a new Resource Group. After all resources were provisioned, I realized that I forget to picked up a location I want. Instead of South Central US, I need them to be in West US.

                      It would be super handy if I can just move them all to the West US location. Instead, I have to delete resources and recreate them…

                      • Expose Partner of Record information in PowerShell for Azure subscriptions and Office 365

                        Currently we need to use the web interface to see and update the PoR information for Azure subscriptions and for Office 365 license subscriptions.

                        At a minimum, it would be handy to see that information in the details of Get-AzureSubscription and Get-MsolSubscription
                        That way, we can easily see if any of them need to be fixed without needing to go into each one individually.

                        Obviously the follow-up on that would be to add the ability to set the information.

                        Thanks.

                          • Billing admin

                            Azure *must* allow distinct access for billing admins and technical admins. If Azure is trying to be an enterprise solution, they must not expect companies to share logins, or for technical admins to have to download and mail the billing statement to the financial admin. Every company on the planet has distinct technical admins and billing admins. I doubt that Microsoft's CTO and CFO are sharing logins.

                              • Enable the use of Azure App Service Certificate with Azure Application Gateway

                                Today, you have to manage your certificate yourself and provide to Azure Application Gateway a .pfx file.
                                It would be great if we can have in Azure Application Gateway the same integration we have between Azure App Service and Azure App Service Certificate in order to handle the purchase, renewal, configuration and security of our certificates.
                                As far as I know, the ASC team has done a seperate Resource Provider and it might be easy to integrate it with other services such as Azure Application Gateway.

                                    • office 365 group expiration

                                      Within the Office 365 Group Expiration setup there should be a way to set it such that all groups *except* specific ones are subject to the expiration setting. As it stands now it's the other way around; all groups or only the selected ones. In an environment where users are permitted to created their own groups (something I was told even Microsoft allows) you really need the expiration feature enabled by default. But there are certainly use cases where as an admin you will want specific groups exempted from this setting.

                                        +Feature Request Discussion - There is a continued need for more intelligent NSG's going forward this is not only to provide a more dynamic, distributable scalable network but to replace more traditional models for DMZ designs. Focusing on distributed designs that do not rely on Virtual Appliances.

                                        There following features I believe would put Azure ahead of other cloud providers. These could be canned as a premium offering charged per NSG on any number of measures even number of requests etc..
