    • Add storage account creation date to api or StorageService properties

      My particular scenario is that in automated testing, we may end up with stranded storage accounts that are not deleted by the test run. I want to write a tool that will deleted them if they are beyond some days old. But I don't find any way to do this programmatically. There have been other cases where I wanted an api for this as well.

        • Provide azure usage information without 5 day lag

          Currently, daily reports have a warning that everything may be up to 5 days out of date. This is really bad for people trying to plan Azure burn at the end of a commitment period!

          Please provide more up to date reporting.

          • Provides standard VM sizes (Hardware configuration)

            It is really wired why Microsoft is providing non-standard VM configuration (VM Sizes in Azure)
            Usually, in IT, we use RAM configuration like 2 GB, 4 GB and 8 GB of RAM. Why we can't find this in Azure, instead we find 3.5, 7, 14...
            Please, can you provide standard VM sizes that fit the IT needs

              • Context-sensitive help

                Azure offers a huge list of resources with rather obscure icons. It is impossible to find what the words mean. To take a simple example 'storage account'. What is it? What does it do?
                There is no way to get any help direct from the portal.
                Pushing support then diagnostics takes you out of context. And finding the help topic for an item is near impossible.

                  • Phone Extension Field when 2FA is required

                    Some Organisations do not offer a Direct Dial Phone Number for their Employees. The employees are reached via switchboard and extension number. Currently in Azure there is no field to put in an extension number.
                    AWS do offer this facility and this has meant that it is easy for them to be reached on their desk phone. If we could include this facility it would be really helpful.

                        • Flexible tagging of azure assets (e.g. with customer ID/name) which shows in usage detail report

                          I need more information in the usage detail report.

                          We intend to rebill customers their exact usage. I also want to maintain as few subscriptions as possible (e.g. multi-tenant Azure subscriptions).

                          As the usage statement exists today, this is impossible. If I intermix customers under a single azure subscription, there's no good way to break out the customers.

                          I need either flexible TAGGING of all azure services (e.g. vm1 can be tagged as anything, i would tag with a customer id, and this would appear in the usage details this would be super nice), or at the very least the…

                          • Azure AD - ADFS "Server"

                            Since we can replicate user object from ad to aad, it would be nice to just "enable adfs feature " on azure ad. So that we no longer need to host adfs on-premise.

                              • Support RBAC at Service Management API

                                Enable access to Service Management API with role based access control (RBAC).
                                Now, API access account can full controls (contain delete). This is very dangerous. We can't avoid this situation now.
                                So I'm desiring to be able to safety access to API by RBAC.
                                (examle: access by readonly account and collect vm list by batch program)

                                  • Make a Free Tier for each Azure Service

                                    It would be extremely useful if Microsoft Azure had a Free Tier for each Azure Service.

                                    For example, like Azure Search, Web Apps etc.

                                    It would be expected that such a Free Tier had a limited resource usage. However, for developers it would be much easy to get started exploring and learning different Azure services, as well as demo or lobby for proposal to utilize Microsoft Azure as basement for any new Application these days.

                                    • Fix account verification for SMS

                                      Fix the account verification system for billing - every time I need to setup a subscription I'm prompted to open a trouble ticket as you are unable to send an SMS to my device's phone number (US based, valid phone number).

                                      • Fix archived usage statements to include rate when subscription is open licensing

                                        In Azure, subscriptions can be funded in a few different ways.

                                        +MPN Benefit
                                        +MSDN Benefit
                                        +Pay as you go
                                        +Open Licensing skus

                                        When a subscription is funded with Open Licensing skus, archived (or, closed billing cycles) "Download Usage" function does NOT include a rate column and therefore does NOT state what your billed usage was for that period.

                                        The current period "download usage" does, but that is limited utility.

                                        Previous cycle usage is important to my company and I'm sure many others, because Azure expense will not be accounted for when purchased but rather then used.

                                        Strangely, PAYGO, MPN and…

                                        • Include/Exclude files when creating Azure package

                                          When a package is created from VS, we need an easy way to exclude/Include additional files or binaries.
