  1. allow a way to use extensionattributes in Azure AD for cloud only users

    I would like a way to use custom attributes in Azure AD. We are cloud only and would like a way to take advantage of the available 15 extensionattributes to help us with user provisioning in other systems that require more information than the standard info for a user object in Azure.

  2. Fix web app and web app plan move

    The number of prerequisites and limitations in moving web app, app service plans and resource groups are staggering. I didn't want to delete and start again because these are production services with a large number of manual configurations (e.g. forced to use LetsEncrypt web job because you don't have it natively, but that's a separate issue!). Now I'm having to delete these and start again, standing up the new sites side-by-side and cutting over using DNS - what is the point of having these functionalities built in if they're not usable?

  4. 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.

  5. Require all resources be exportable to application resource templates.

    Currently there are resource types (application gateway for example) that cannot be exported to resource templates.

    Azure needs a policy that if something is going to be offered, it must be exportable and cannot be released until it is.

  7. Add B2C applications through API

    Currently it's impossible to create applications programmatically so they appear under Azure AD B2C - Applications blade.

    It is only possible to create "App Registrations" through Graph and AD APIs.

    There are others asking about it such as:

  9. Display the Creator and Time of Creation prominently in the Azure page for any given entity

    We have many people working in our subscription and can not tell who deployed a VM (or anything else) without digging into audit logs and doing a manual search back through 90 day periods.

    Please prominently display the creator and time of creation on the main azure page for any given azure entity. Or show "owner" prominently.

  10. PaaS Resources Should All Have Private IP Option

    One of the biggest concerns for companies is moving data to publicly accessible resources. Most companies are going to be hybrid cloud for a while as well. They also have sites that access sensitive data.

    The game changer for Azure is to allow all storage (data lake store, storage accts, etc.) and app services (besides paying for an ASE) to be private IP with VNET integration...

    All of the AWS breaches are from people exposing storage publicly. This same concern lies within Azure blob storage as well. Even worse since Azure blob storage doesn't have the same firewall settings as…

  11. resource health

  12. Allow search for a VM by public IP address in portal

    When SSL certificates are nearing expiry, I get an email with domain name/s associated with the certificate. Finding the IP address for a domain is easy in a hosting service's interface, but then finding the Azure VM with that IP in the portal is onerous to impossible. When managing large numbers of VMs, being able to filter by public IP address would be a welcome boon.

  14. request new feature: alerts for extensions/agents in VMSS

    One of my customer want to proactively monitor the status of Guest Agent and Extensions on VM within VMSS. For example, we may set alert when heartbeat is lost or the extension status go to failed.

  15. Add all fields to Dynamic Groups

    Please add all fields that are available via Get-AzureADDevice to the list of what can be used for Dynamic Groups.
    I would like to be able to use DeviceTrustType and DirSyncEnabled to define dynamic groups for use with Intune.

    For all DeviceTrustType=serverAD (Hybrid joined) add "Always on VPN", etc.

    It does sound like there are other "Hidden" attributes also. Hopefully those too can be surfaced via Get-AzureADDevice and also be allowed in dynamic groups.

    Thanks

  17. Azure Status Resolved Update

    At the moment, the RSS feed doesn't post a "Resolved" message so when we receive information about an issue or an outage, it's effectively permanent as we never get an update about its resolution.
    If the RSS feed posted a "Resolved" message about the issue or outage it posted earlier, Systems and managers could respond to this update with internal/external comms.

  18. Custom Roles AssignableScope for root ("/")

    Currently Custom roles cannot have an AssignableScope set to root ("/"). Capability must be addded to have all subscriptions federating to a certain Azure AD tenant inherit a custom role. Maybe the AssignableScope parameter must be modified to also accept a tenant id or name for the scope of the role. The global admin of the tenant must be afforded the privilege to create this role.

  19. signalr

    It's great that SignalR is now being offered as an Azure service - https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/signalr-service/

    However, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-signalr/signalr-overview talks about how it is built on top of .NET Core.

    However, we - like many users of pre-.NET Core - can't just up and move to .NET Core (for many different reasons).

    Please consider supporting SignalR service on Azure with previous versions of .NET framework - and not just stick with .NET Core.

  20. 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…
