  2. Make it easier for nonprofit to renew sponsorship and see how to do this

    As a nonprofit approaches the end of a year's sponsorship we receive an email warning that the sponsorship will end and be converted to pay as you go. This is alarming for small charities as we do not have the funds to continue operating on this basis and sponsorship is an essential (and very welcome) offering by Microsoft.

    However, the route to renewing sponsorship each year is tortuous, poorly documented, and left to the last minute. It would be preferable if there was a seamless path from within the Azure Billing and Subscriptions->Sponsorship page in the portal to be alerted…

  3. Improve Free/Trial/Entry level offers

    Azure is prohibitively expensive for small businesses and new/poor developers.

    £150 for 30 days is not long enough to get up and running and to make a viable website/app to cover the costs.

    Suggestions:
    -Allow users to use the free credits over 12 or 6 or even 3 months.
    -Or return to your previous offer with free monthly credits for a year.
    -Or offer SSL on the shared plan. (sites without SSL are not an option)

    £50-£60/pm for a basic website with custom domain and SSL is ridiculous.

    I feel my only option is to abandon Azure and look at…

  4. Allow Group-based licensing to support groups that contain other groups (nested groups).

    Allow to apply a license to a nested group, it could be very helpful for us since by doing this it will be easier assigning licenses one by one in different groups. As an example, when working with a school, we want that by belonging to the group "All students" their e-mails can be assigned to the different grades.

  5. Action Group should be scoped to the subscription

    We have developed an integration for App Insight sourced alerts to call a function via an action group to promote those to our On Prem Event Mgt platform. We need this action group to be globally available across all subscriptions and all resource groups

  8. Please open a French Azure Datacenter

    France has many laws regarding datas security, and in some sector like healthcare, it's impossible to host stuff outside of France.

    I'd be a very good news for us that Microsoft could open a datacenter in France :)

  10. Change directory of CSP subscriptions.

    If a customer has a tenant/subscription with the same partner who has the other tenant, you should allow the partner to do the transfer of directory.

  12. About specification that co-administrator is removed when Subscription Ownership Transfer

    When Subscription Ownership Transfer is executed, A Service Administrator will also be changed to the destination account and a Co-Administrator is removed.

    It may happen in the case of the destination account is already registered as one of the Co-Administrators, because a single account cannot be registered as both a Service Administrator and a Co-Administrator.

    I request an additional option which gives a source account administrator to leave the co-administrator setting or not.

  13. Add a SQL Server database in the DreamSpark subscription

    I beleive including a free SQL Database (MSSQL) to the DreamSpark subscription will be greatly beneficial in the education process of many students. Having a reliable MSSQL Server that can be used for learning SQL Server is very important. There's a MySQL database included in the subscription, but I believe having experience in at least two flavors of SQL is a lot better for students, especially TSQL if they intend to work with Microsoft technologies in the future.

  14. Want to access Storage Account from same region even when Storage Account's Firewall enabled.

    "Services deployed in the same region as the storage account use private Azure IP addresses for communication. Thus, you cannot restrict access to specific Azure services based on their public inbound IP address range."

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-network-security#grant-access-from-an-internet-ip-range

    So when we are faced with this issue, we need to disable the Firewall or deploy Storage Account in the different region.

    If we could use Storage Account which is Firewall enabled, and other services in the same region, it will be more useful for users. I'd like you to make this possible.

  15. Add route manual summarization feature to ExpressRoute which advertise summarized routes to on-premises router

    Currently ExpressRoute does not support manual route summarization, for example:

    Currently the routes are learning with /24 which needs to be summarized to /16

    Customer is not able to summarize the route in Azure, and they will need to summarize on their on-premises devices through BGP, before further route propagation.

    Please consider to add such feature in ExpressRoute.

  16. Bind Reserved Instances to the customer and not the agreement.

    During an EA to CSP or between CSPs migration RIs are not moved, they have to be cancelled and re-purchased. This brings massive challenges.


    • Microsoft only allows cancellations of RIs up to 50k per year for a customer. Any cancellations request above this have to be approved by the business desk and the likelihood is they will deny it.


    • When re-purchased the clocks reset. That is, if you have a 3 year reservation bought 1 year ago, when you re-purchase it you start a new 3 year term.


    • The challenge is even worst for CSPs. If they purchase reservations for…

  17. Expend search criteria to more them 50 users

  19. Why are Free Trials tied to bank card??? And is it even legal (in Europe)???

    Free Trial accounts appear to be linked to the bank card used in the subscription -- why a bank card is required for a free subscription is absurd and I even wonder how legal (under European law).

    But once a bank card was used for a Free Trial that bank card is "black-listed" from Free Trial subscriptions for 12-months.

    Even not thinking about the legal/privacy implications of of that, I've previously used a Free Trial to evaluate some Azure features and now wanted to evaluate Notification Hubs -- not allowed because I'm using the same bank card. It's a different…

  20. Stop with ridicilous price increases

    First decomissioning of low priced features and replacing them with much more expensive ones (e.g. SQL Azure x10 price for same prior performance!), and now another 22% price hike across-the-board. Thanks MS - do you actually want customers? And all this whilst Google and Amazon keep reducing prices!
