  1. allow setting spending limit on any account type

    I cannot afford to have a runaway process or a mistake in the Azure portal to generate a huge bill for me.

    Many of the special offers that give Azure credits come with a spending limit of $0.00 such that when your credit is used up, your account is temporarily disabled until your credits are refreshed.

    However, you can only remove the spending limit. You cannot change it to a higher level.

    Also, Pay as you Go accounts cannot have a spending limit either.

    It would be extremely useful to be able to set a spending limit on Pay as…

    • add "Resource Group" and "Tags" to CSP reconcilation

      Add "Resource Group" and "Tags" columns to CSP usage based reconciliation file to help CSP partner divide bill to customer by department basis. At the moment only way is to do with different subscriptions and this causes management + admin overhead

        • Support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI

          Please support Tags in the Microsoft Azure Enterprise content pack for Power BI. Currently we have to make incredibly manual slicers for it, or else download the data via powershell, programmatic split the Tags into individual fields, and then reupload the data to be analyzed separately, instead of being able to do this straight out of BI.

          • Improvement of EA portal

            Currently once the administrator sets "AO view charges" Enabled, every Account Owner come to be able to view the all charges of every subsections.
            We demand the improvement about the authority setting so that the Account Owners can see their own subscription's information only.

            • Move resource(s) to another location.

              I wish I could move resource(s) to another location just like I can move it now to another Resource Group or Subscription.

              For example, I just created a new Function App, with a new Storage Account and put them in a new Resource Group. After all resources were provisioned, I realized that I forget to picked up a location I want. Instead of South Central US, I need them to be in West US.

              It would be super handy if I can just move them all to the West US location. Instead, I have to delete resources and recreate them…

              • Create this new Azure region : Switzerland

                Switzerland is a small country but it is one of the world’s strongest economies. Many swiss companies can't make the move to Azure because they do need to have theirs data inside the country.
                Please create this new Azure region : Switzerland !
                Thanks.

Focusing on distributed designs that do not rely on Virtual Appliances.

                      • Address the "Snowden/NSA" issues in every territory in a visible and concrete manner

                        Let developers and consultants configure where certain data is stored (geographically) and also verify that it is really stored in the given location and does not cross international boundaries at any time. This is important for most companies since they are bound by compliance regulations, insurance, and legal best-practices that require this granularity for particular type of data.

                          • Need a function to URL path rewriting in Application Gateway

                            Currently, I know Azure Application Gateway has a function for redirection of URL path based.

                            Now, I need a function for rewriting URL path during redirecting a request to backend server.

                            For example, When Application Gateway received a HTTP request to http://www.contoso.com/test/*, it redirects the request as /images/* to backend server.

                            In other words, I want to set a URL path for backend server in PathRuleConfig in Application Gateway.

                            • Enable the use of Azure App Service Certificate with Azure Application Gateway

                              Today, you have to manage your certificate yourself and provide to Azure Application Gateway a .pfx file.
                              It would be great if we can have in Azure Application Gateway the same integration we have between Azure App Service and Azure App Service Certificate in order to handle the purchase, renewal, configuration and security of our certificates.
                              As far as I know, the ASC team has done a seperate Resource Provider and it might be easy to integrate it with other services such as Azure Application Gateway.

                              • Azure Active Directory B2C: Don't charge for token refresh

                                Azure AD B2C is great and the pricing too, except for the fact, that token refreshs carried out by the application (as opposed to being carried out by the user) are charged separately. An application that keeps a logical connection to the server while in the background, might carry out quite many token refreshs over time. A regular frequency of one refresh per hour leads to ~700 refreshs per month. Assuming 1.000.000 users, this sums up to ~500.000$/month. This exceeds the capacity of start-ups like ours by a factor of 1000 (!). Although AD B2C would be the perfect fit…

                                • Better pricing structure for API Management

                                  We currently use 4 instances of APIM for duplicating our environments (Dev/UAT/Pre Prod and Production)

                                  We went with APIM as a solution for fronting some azure services and some internal services. Due to the VPN access only being available on Premium we are paying for over 32 Millions calls a day when we will barely generate a 1 Million. So we have 4 Premium APIM instances costing us £6000 a month purely for the VPN access. Forcing us to pay for a level we do not require just for a feature of the environment, it would be better if the…

                                    • Harmonize the offer types (CSP/Open/EA/PAYG)

                                      CSP is a great purchasing model for small and medium businesses, but has some serious problems.

                                      1) Migrating between CSP and any other offer is a very laboursome and expensive project (not to mention that many resources cannot be migrated). This can cause Vendor lock-in and some other major risks for customers using CSP. Currently even PAYG to CSP is not easy.

                                      2) CSP customers are unequal to other Azure users despite the fact that they pay the same or sometimes even more, because they do not have the same services available to them.

                                      3) CSP resellers have to put…

                                      • Provide statistics to Azure DNS Services

                                        Azure DNS Service has no statistics about requests, type of requests, origin of requests and so on ...
                                        That can be useful to keep track of service costs and also to have a general view of our IaaS usage.

                                        • Custom Domain with HTTPS for Static website hosting in Azure Storage

                                          Currently it is necessary to use a CDN when using custom domains + HTTPS for static websites hosted in Azure Storage.
                                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/storage-blob-static-website#custom-domain-names

                                          It would be more convenient in a lot of situations if this could be done right within the storage account without the cdn.
                                          As with the CDN right now, it would be great to have a one-click certificate deployment process, maybe even using LetsEncrypt? ;-)
