  1. Enterprise Applications Search Improvement

    We are unable to use the Enterprise Applications blade to find our applications. The interface only lists the first 20 applications. You cannot even download a list of them. In order to search for one on the list you have to know what letters the application name starts with. You cannot do partial search on part of the name, you must start with the first name. This is a HUGE problem if we forgot the name of an application.

    For example. We created an Application called Ameris Webex. It is not listed in the first 20 applications, therefore we have…

    • Moving IBM Mainframes to Azure

      we need an easy way to lift and **** Mainframes/ AS400 to lift and **** to Azure. instead of replatforming if Microsoft can build a layer which AS 400 or Mainframe apps can run on, can help drive consumption of Azure. Hopefully Microsoft can do it before AWS

        • Fix Reservations IAM

          As the Account Administrator for my enrolment, I have no view of RIs which have been provisioned under the enrolment by default unless “Owner” access is explicitly provided by the “Contributor” who purchased the RI.

          In effect, I have no ability to manage RI resources by default; and I may potentially not even know of their existence until I receive the quarterly invoice.

          Please make the RIs accessible as per the standard IAM policy which applies to all other Azure resources (ie. Account and Service Administrators by default can view).

          The Azure Doc (link below) states that "By default, the…

          • Modify QnA Maker provisioning process to support selection of an existing App Service Plan instead of a new App Service Plan being created

            Provisioning a QnA Maker Service provisions a Public App Service App <yourAppsName>.azurewebsites.net, but you are not given any control over the App Service Plan for which the App Service resides. My first choice would actually be an App Service Plan in our ASE environment, but if that isn’t doable at least let us select one of our existing public App Service plans to host this in.

            A 1-1 ratio of App Service Plan to App Service is extremely inefficient.

            • Azure Sql Import Bacpac slow

              We are testing a production database migration to Azure SQL. The database is 50GB and even on the S3 tier we are going on 30 hours still and the import isn't complete (pegged at 100% DTU). At this point I couldn't even tell you when this will finish. I understand I could have chosen the highest premium tier to import this and it might have been quicker, however I only want to test this database and right now I've lost 3-4 days on this (importing at S0, S1 tiers). My suggestion is to allow an option when going through the…

                  Pricing calculator - make calculating Reserved VM Instances & OS separately possible
                  When choosing "1/3 year reserved" with Windows OS selected, the total price shows but "the e-year reserved VM" and "monthly paid OS" are all combined. It would be appreciated if the two can be shown as separated. (When customer orders Azure MC, they would like to know how much is paid at the point of reservation and how much is monthly fee)

                  • Azure Free Test Tier Plan

                    Everyone wants a free hosting. Well Amazon provides a free hosting for 1 year.

                    Microsoft should too [but as a test server]

                    1GB RAM, 10GB SSD but the instance will be working for only 12hrs / day
                    User should be able to set his preferred time slot when the site should work. so, technically its not a web hosting but a test bed.

                    IF a developer chooses to use a DotNet One Core application he should be getting a full free tier hosting for 24 months :) without time restriction

                      • Azure MFA Trusted IP limitation of 50 address ranges

                        Currently per the article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/multi-factor-authentication/multi-factor-authentication-whats-next the Trusted IP for configuration "For requests from a specific range of public IPs" is restricted to a hard limit of 50 IP Address ranges.

                        Please provide the ability to extend this number as there are companies like ours where the limit of 50 IP Address ranges makes this not usable for production environments.

                        • Display notification that the pricing calculator does not include VAT, GST or other local taxes

                          Might I suggest that a note be placed on the calculator that the price displayed is exclusive of local taxes (that should cover VAT, GST and any other sales tax...)

                          I believe it is a legal requirement for businesses trading in Australia for 'ex GST' or similar if a price for a service does not include GST, or as a single value to be displayed in the case that goods and services provided are not exclusively provided to businesses.

                          See https://www.accc.gov.au/business/pricing/displaying-prices

                            • New tier between shared and basic

                              I think there should be a tier between shared and basic. The estimated 5x price increase from moving to basic seems pretty high for sites that have outgrown shared. Especially for sites with limited revenue like tech blogs.

                              I am thinking the new tier could be available to small businesses or individuals.

                                • Allow app service diagnostic log settings to be sticky to Deployment Slots

                                  We just migrated from a classic cloud service to a website (app service). We set up a STAGING slot for deployment. Our need for diagnostic logs is only for our PRODUCTION slot, but it turns out that we MUST enable the same exact logging settings on our STAGING slot because otherwise when we do a swap the PRODUCTION slot ends up with no logging!

                                  This is counter-intuitive to us. We don't need the logs from STAGING 99.9% of the time.

                                  We would like a way to specify that the log settings are sticky to the PRODUCTION slot and don't change…

                                  • stop supporting ICE and save Microsoft's reputation

                                    Dear Mr. Zander, Microsoft's work with ICE makes it complicit in separating parents and children--an immoral act that will stain Microsoft's reputation for decades to come. I'm writing to ask you to immediately make it clear that Microsoft will no longer support or make possible any action that serves to keep families apart or detain people who have committed no crime other than seeking a better life for themselves. Please take a stand on this and set the example for other corporations, businesses, and CEOs.

                                    Microsoft's good name is at stake here. As a lifelong user of Microsoft products and…

                                    • Create More Learning Plans

                                      I really like the Learning Plans you have posted, and I'd like to see additional Learning Plans for the following topics:

                                      * Virtual Networks / Networking
                                      * Azure Active Directory - Operations
                                      * Storage

                                      Having these plans would really help those studying for the 70-533 and, of course, with understanding infrastructure topics for operations.

                                      I would be willing to contribute to these, but I do not see the Learning Plans anywhere on the GitHub repo.
