  1. sync and remove office 365 mailbox

    We are in hybrid mode of exchange online and on prem, I would like to set up some users to have roles that only allow to run start-adsyncsynccycle -policytype Delta and Connect-MsolService and remove-msoluser in Azue AD powershell. Does anyone have an idea of the best roles I should assign to be able to let these users run these commands without being global administrators.

  2. Add PowerShell command to show specific users roles by idm-xxxxxxxxx in Azure, including inherited roles

    I still need to see how one user (idm-xxx1) vs user (idm-xxx2) roles compare, including inheritance. From the previous emails, I get that is not possible from PowerShell?
    Falling back to the Azure GUI to get the answer is going to take quite a while to figure the answer out.

  3. Do not charge for 'free Accounts'

    I just registered for a 'free Azure account' and I was charged Rs. 2 on my credit card. During registration, it asked me for my credit card details, which itself was quite uncomfortable. And then, it charged Rs. 2 without any message or prior notification. Since you anyways give away free credit, why do you need to charge on credit card? This has brought me a very negative initial impression about Microsoft and Azure. I have been using IBM cloud for several months now. Such a thing never happened there. My suggestion is, do not charge people without their consent…

  4. Azure Files retention support

    Windows Files servers may have retention policy possibilities with Dynamic Access Control and for Office 365 we have the Office 365 Compliance & Security Center . We would need retention policy support also for Azure files.

  5. Align EA Marketplace cost reporting with Azure portal

    The Azure portal reports the Marketplace cost based on the actual utilisation. Equally, in the billing file on the Azure portal the invoice can be downloaded including the actual Marketplace usage. Within the EA portal the marketplace cost are lagging a few days. The EA portal appears a bit old school here. Suggest to improve or kill the EA portal and position the azure portal fully for cost reporting as well.

  6. Notification when Guest Invitation has been accepted

    Notification when Guest Invitation has been accepted

    It would be usefull to add a Switch, to get informed (if needed) when a Guest has accepted the Invitation to the External Azure AD.

    This is useful especially when Permissions need to be granted to Sharepoint, but the Sharing Option is disabled.

    Thank you !

  7. Microsoft should put an option on azure web pages to copy the PowerShell or CLI used behind GUI changes

    Microsoft started a copy option for the PowerShell commands used behind the GUI interface when manipulating configuration. this was a great learning tool for administrators. We could prepare the setting through GUI, and right before submitting the change there was an option to copy the PowerShell command of our setting.

    I strongly recommend this be put into Azure portal.

    example: you want to create a few new tags for a resource group.
    you put all the information into text boxes. Right before clicking a submit or save command, we could have a link to copy the PowerShell or CLI version…

  8. Please pay more attention to the VM connection performance

    Spend more than 30 seconds to load the desktop when connect to an VM. Appreciate for MS team's hard working. I know you have done your best but it is still regret that you cannot fix the issue at last.

  9. Avisos por problemas al agregar métodos de pago

    Con una suscripción se han tenido problemas de pago con la tarjeta de crédito que se tenía en uso para el pago mensual automático.

    Dadas las circunstancias, procedí a agregar otra tarjeta de crédito como método de pago y dejarla en lugar de la anterior que mencioné y lo único que pude ver fue:
    a. Una notificación de que no habían podido poner ese nuevo método de pago como el "activo para pago automático".
    b
    . Una notificación diciendo que el pago se había realizado pero mencionando también el punto [a].
    c. Saldos de la suscripción no cambiaron.
    d.…

  14. Fix azure function Topic name validation

    The topic name text box in azure function shows below validation text.

    "Your topic name must start and end with a letter or number, and it can contain only lowercase letters, numbers, the period, and the hyphen. The name must be 3 to 63 characters."

    But on specifying topic name with a hyphen "-", it doesn't allow to save.

  16. notification message that the Azure account has been disabled

    Dear

    My first experience with Azure Backup was relatively good, just the account lockout procedure for verification of authenticity was absurd, message below the email I received the notification:

    We have a small problem. His signature ' free trial ' and its services have been disabled on Thu, January 8, 2015 GMT 23:52:34 because we discovered evidence of abuse or fraud.

    Question: How can it be a "little problem" If there is evidence of abuse or fraud?

    improve the message not be accused of abuse or fraud unless they have absolute certainty.

  18. allow tagging for Action Groups

    Through the ARM portal, tagging Action Groups is not available. This then prohibits creation of Action Groups if there are tagging policies enabled. (It can only be done via ARM template as mentioned by Microsoft Support).
