  1. Better, more independent, explanation of which services are PCI-DSS Compliant

    The Azure AOC lists Platform Services as being PCI-DSS Compliant, however there is no explanation of which services are included in that term, e.g Web Apps, Storage, Azure SQL etc.

    I realise the Trust Centre (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-in/support/trust-center/services/) provides a list of which Azure services are PCI-DSS Compliant, however our QSA did not accept this. The reason being that the content is under Microsoft's control and as such there is no proof that the content has been verified by the QSA - Neohapsis in this case.

    I would suggest the AOC explicitly defines the term Platform Services.

    • Allow custom DNS servers by subnet.

      Currently, we use a single vnet for each Azure subscription. We provide segmentation of business units by subnets/NSGs. We can set vnets and nics to custom DNS, but there is no way to do this at the subnet level.

      • Import bacpac locally should be 1 click experience

        If one wants to create a copy of a deployed database on his local Sql Server 2014 he needs to be prepared for quite a process described here -

        http://sql-articles.com/articles/azure/issues-restoring-sql-azure-bacpac-due-to-querystorestalequerythreshold/

        But this MUST be a 1 click experience!

            Bug: on the Getting Started video, it shows that the free trial period is for 3 months when in reality, the current portal is showing 1 month.

              • Create a UI for graphical method for creating cloud environment and architecture

                I would like to see a graphical interface which allows me to 'drag and drop' icons representing servers or cloud services, use Visio like line connectors to connect, add devices like firewalls in a Visio like drawing which then creates the corresponding PowerShell build script which when executed generates the virtual network, the servers etc. Think of it like a Visio drawing program where I can do a reference architecture by dropping Azure icons on a page, connecting them up with appropriate connectors, and by virtue of that it creates a topology and architecture and spins it up. I do…

                • Increase IUR credits

                  Current IUR rights credits are essentially useless since you can't maintain a demo system and you can't combine it with a real credit card. Currently, when the IUR Credit runs out, you have to shut down and start over the next month.

                    • Allowing a filtered view of users/groups that are granted access to Azure Applications

                      Currently, when you go to the Azure page for assigning users/groups to an Application (Active Directory / Applications), you can only filter by users or groups. You don't have an easy way to view assigned users or assigned groups. If you do a full search, and there are > 100 results, you need to change the search criteria. So, no easy method in the web interface to determine which groups or users have access to an application, which makes it hard to update the password or settings if necessary or verify which people have access, etc.

                      • Expose Partner of Record information in PowerShell for Azure subscriptions and Office 365

                        Currently we need to use the web interface to see and update the PoR information for Azure subscriptions and for Office 365 license subscriptions.

                        At a minimum, it would be handy to see that information in the details of Get-AzureSubscription and Get-MsolSubscription
                        That way, we can easily see if any of them need to be fixed without needing to go into each one individually.

                        Obviously the follow-up on that would be to add the ability to set the information.

                        Thanks.

                            Also if you suspend a account you can't submit a ticket regarding that account been suspended. Kind of a oversight a button with you owe $***.xx please click here to pay and reactivate your subscription would be a handy feature to add. Considering I've spent 3 hours on the phone and got no where.

                            • point to site in resource manager

                              Azure Resource Manager needs some sort of Point-To-Site VPN capability. We can't transition away from Classic without it. PPTP or L2TP would be ideal, but even SSTP is better than nothing.

                              • Allows me to send push notifications to as many tags as i want.

                                From what I understand from the documentation I can only push notifications to 20 tags at a time. This means that for my application where I want to send to all registered users at a location I have chunk the requests into groups of 20 which is just silly.

                                • Make the web console load faster.

                                  The web console loads way too slow and it's even worse if I load a tool such as the notification hub directly. I go through the pain of watching the whole application load then watch just the tool I want load. Something goofy happens with the loading screen so that the whole things just looks painful.

                                    The log actually distinguish between SYSINFO, INFO and ERR messages which is useful, you could make it even more useful by providing the option to differentiate the text colors, for example SYSINFO=BLUE, INFO=BLACK, ERR=RED. Thanks and keep up the good work ;)

                                    • Fix the pricing calculator to show correct currency in Safari on Mac

                                      Visiting https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/ in Safari shows pricing values in SEK but with a $ sign. $1 = SEK8.5 so that is a huge difference. Without realizing we would have skipped IoT hubs completely due to pricing.

                                      Chrome shows expected currency sign.

                                      • pinned notification

                                        Allow pinning of notifications.

                                        Do this so they 'stay' visible and look like the 'action centre' (notification bar) in Windows 10, so when you run many tasks you can see multiple statuses as they happen in your peripheral as you work on other things.
