  1. Azure's status board availability

    The Microsoft Azure status board should live outside Azure's ecosystem just because when there is a problem with some Azure´s service, the Microsoft Azure status page may not be available for the same issue.

    Thanks for the feedback. We are working on a fallback site for Azure Status for scenarios of Azure outages.

  2. Build a data center in Lagos, Nigeria

    Lagos is a coastal city, building a data center here will support the regional economies. It is nicely situated at the heart of Africa and can serve most of Africa. This will also play nicely with Microsoft's interests in on the continent.

    Microsoft is expanding on its existing investments in Africa by delivering Microsoft Cloud Services including Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 directly from Datacenters located in Johannesburg and Cape Town South Africa. Initial availability is expected in 2018.

    Stay tuned for more updates here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/?v=17.14

  3. Allow App Service Environments to be added to existing Subnet

    App Service Environments should be able to be added to existing VNET Subnets. Having to rework subnets in VNET is kind of a pain to add a new one or delete and re-add a subnet to accommodate the ASE.

    We are going to add this back into the portal. You can do this now using templates but that isn’t as easy as just using the portal if you are making changes. There were a few issues that forced us to remove that capability from the portal but the issues are circumvented now.

  4. Fix link forwarding where there exists only en-us version

    From page http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/hh369930.aspx

    there is a link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=262845 to "Testing the Performance of an Azure Cloud Service Locally in the Compute Emulator Using the Visual Studio Profiler"

    After clicking it, it forwards me to http://www.windowsazure.com/cs-cz/develop/net/common-tasks/profiling-in-visual-studio/ but it does not exists. After changing cs-cz to en-us manually, everything works.

    Can you please fix link forwarding and fallback to en-us version where localized version is not available.

  5. allow to report bugs, without paying for support

    Found a bug in azure, trying to report this though is a nightmare. Seems I have to pay for a support package in order to report an issue with azure itself.

    Sorry about the poor experience, can you provide more details on the bug? While this is an area we are working on improving, at present here are the avenues to report a bug:

    1.) MSDN Forums : (https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/home)
    We have engineers looking through the appropriate Azure Forums and getting bugs reported and fixed where applicable.

    2.) Feedback.azure.com : If a specific forum is available for the service you are reporting a bug on, you can also report it via this portal.

  6. fix the wording of the msdn benefit since it suggests credits can be used for anything.

    I do still find this whole scenario very confusing, and poorly phrased..

    http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/member-offers/msdn-benefits/
    This website says that I can use the credits towards 100 websites + DB...
    Its only in the fine print a few pages deep that it mentions the test/dev only thing...

  7. Fix default firewall rule set for free tier Windows based VMs

    End Chat

    Whenever a Windows based Free Tier virtual machine is created, the default firewall rule set includes a rule for inbound SSH. This needs to be changed to inbound RDP. Inbound SSH should only be for Linux based VMs.

  8. Permission set per Management Certificate

    It would be great to be able to configure which of the management APIs a specific management certificate is allowed to use. Currently there is no real difference between certificates, so having multiple are of limited value.

    If management certificates are treated as roles, then it would provide many configuration options and better security w.r.t. how certificates can be used.

    I could for instance create a certificate that only allows existing virtual machines to be started, but nothing else and then deploy that with an application, to a perhaps-not-fully-secure environment, without the danger of allowing someone who gets hold of…

    We have some changes coming to our platform that will affect how clients can authenticate. Stay tuned for more details.

  10. Application Gateways are a problem. They need around 20-40 minutes to update for every change.

    They need around 15-40 minutes to update for every change. If we need to add any new backend in hurry it will cause problems. Also they seem unreliable while coming up. Sometime they come up and sometime they don't.
