Do you have an idea or suggestion based on your experience with Azure? We would love to hear it! Please take a few minutes to submit your idea in the one of the forums available on the right or vote up an idea submitted by another Azure customer. All of the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Microsoft engineering teams responsible for building Azure.

This forum (General Feedback) is used for any broad feedback related to Azure. If you have feedback on a specific service such as Azure Virtual Machines, Web Apps, or SQL Database, please submit your feedback in one of the forums available on the right.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

  1. Please send Azure-related emails to my Azure email address and not to other random ones

    When sending emails to me, please send them directly to me. I don't know where you got this other email address that you are sending to, but it's really annoying. I log in with my MSA email, that's the primary email address on my MSA, please send emails to that address.

        • fix the wording of the msdn benefit since it suggests credits can be used for anything.

          I do still find this whole scenario very confusing, and poorly phrased..

          http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/member-offers/msdn-benefits/
          This website says that I can use the credits towards 100 websites + DB...
          Its only in the fine print a few pages deep that it mentions the test/dev only thing...

            • allow Partners - Particularly Gold partner accounts to use thier organisation account for login and redemption of the IUR.

              allow Partners - Particularly Gold partner accounts to use thier organisation account for login and redemption of the IUR, seems silly we need to have an Organisational Account for O365, and a Windows Live ID for Azure.

                • Update suggestion statuses more regularly

                  Some suggestions were marked as planned or under review over 2 years ago with no updates since then. It would be useful to either flag something as "not happening any time soon" or have Microsoft staff update these statuses maybe every 6 months or year with an update on whether these things are still planned or have been dropped and how far they are in the planning/implementation process.

                    the azure service is failed and this service is useless. like always microsoft doesnt provide proper service from the begnining. shame on that. why during the trial version I have to submit my credit card as im using it for trial only. cos of that for sure you will lose a lot of business and im one of them.

                    • Create a template document for customers

                      Hello Guys,

                      1st of all I just want to say that you're doing great! I just heard about the new announcements and I’m very excited to get starting working with the new features.

                      2nd of all I would like to suggest and request from you guys if you can create a template for customers just like the Azure calculator but as a document form, so they will be able to see the entire options they have in a more detailed view so they will be able to choose exactly what services they would like to have and use and then…

                      • Make Azure available in Haiti

                        Microsoft Azure should be available for developers and businesses in Haiti. This country lack of a power supply system you can rely on for business, so the cloud is our best options. Please consider adding Haiti in the list of supported countries while signing up for Microsoft Azure.

                          • 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.

                                • Allow e-mail unsubscribe

                                  I have received three e-mails in one day from azure. One about downtime (I have no services right now), and two advertising features. None of these e-mails have unsubscribe buttons, and I cannot find a way to suppress them in the account page. All contact checkboxes are un-checked.

                                  • I suggest you fix your system so that it actually works. That would be a good start.

                                    Frankly, Azure is unreliable - so much so that our staff has what we have come to cal the "Azure Yips". We actually cringe and look at the screen out of the corners of our eyes, so as to try and avoid a huge disappointment each time the system is down. It's really not a matter of making it "better". It's more a matter of either making it functional and reliable or simply making it "go away".

                                      Can you provide some examples of things that you consider to be unstable in Azure?

                                    • Small error on Oracle page

                                      On http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/campaigns/oracle/ the images are out of sync with the text in the thumbnail views (e.g. the select oracle software thumbnail is not shown with the select software text)

                                      • Permission set per Management Certificate

                                        It would be great to be able to configure which of the management APIs a specific management certificate is allowed to use. Currently there is no real difference between certificates, so having multiple are of limited value.

                                        If management certificates are treated as roles, then it would provide many configuration options and better security w.r.t. how certificates can be used.

                                        I could for instance create a certificate that only allows existing virtual machines to be started, but nothing else and then deploy that with an application, to a perhaps-not-fully-secure environment, without the danger of allowing someone who gets hold of…

                                        • Google App Engine is the best in terms of free tier for developers. I am sure Microsoft can afford it but they don't. That is too bad.
