    On the Virtual Machine overview pane, we see host level metrics for CPU, Network, Disk bytes, and Disk operations. We need ability to add guest level metrics here and to add additional tiles and customizations.

    • Azure File Services support Unix permissions

      All of our systems use Linux and being able to use Azure File Services as a HA option would be ideal. However, it does not support pure Unix permissions. This creates the need to create a different share for each folder with different ownership and permissions. Having the ability to have different permissions and owners/groups on sub folders is a requirement of our application. Any idea when something like this would be available?

                    • Add Virtual Machine service feature to the Imagine Subscription for Students

                      It'd be great if you guys add the VM service under the Imagine Subscription for Students in order to practice with real server instances and have more overview about what this service is all about.
                      Currently, we just have access to the App service.

                      • Enable to view on dashboards the PAAS file-storage usage. Per day, so to monitor both current status, and the growth (costs) indication.

                        In PAAS, enable showing on dashboard how much of my 'file storage' is in use, per day. Either as a FILESERVICE Capacity 'metric'. Or as a FILESERVICE 'Usage' indicator (alike already does exist for BLOB SERVICE).
                        See screenshot.
                        So I can see wether my file usage is 'stable' (as should), or slowing growing over time, and thus growing in costs (as should not).

                        • rename Load Balancer name in Azure Portal

                          There should be an option to rename Load Balancer name in Azure Portal. We follow naming convention of each resources in Azure and there is high chance of typo's sometimes when configuring resources manually.

                          Recently I created a Load balancer for HA/DR solution and later realised there is typo in Azure Load Balancer while creation. So I have to delete the load balancer and create it again which caused some delay to setup whole solution. So i think there should be a feature to rename resource name in Azure after creation.

                              • Azure Application Gateway - support for default route through NVA FW

                                An Azure Application Gateway subnet can't have a UDR with a default route through an Network Virtual Appliance FW or Backend Health will be "unknown" This is due to asynchronous routing between the Azure Monitoring Service, the App Gateway, and the NVA FW. We need a way to create a route exception in the UDR for the Azure Monitoring Services traffic.

                                  • Provide a method of disabling AAD user accounts.

                                    Currently, a user account in AAD can only be deleted or configured as a user, limited admin or global admin. It would be nice to be able to disable an account so that it can be re-enabled on demand and utilized for periodic tasks (such as app. deployments from Visual Studio).

                                    • Add persistent storage(ADL/Blob) as a backend storage for HDInsight Kafka Cluster

                                      Like other HDInsight cluster i.e. Hadoop, HBase , Kafka cluster should also have option to use Azure storage account or datalake as backend storage.
                                      It will help user to restore the kafka logs in case if cluster crashes.

                                      • Group Based Licensing

                                        Group Based Licensing - While this feature is currently in preview, it seems that once a user receives a license for an specific product within an E3 by being member of a security group, no other product licenses within that E3 can be modified manually. This is not the case if the user had a "Direct" License assigned manually previously.

                                        • Better UI to filter vm sizes when creating/resizing a vm

                                          There are now a lot of different vm sizes available in Azure, so we need a better UI to filter them out.

                                          Some ideas:
                                          - vcpus/memory sliders with min/max, not only min (see attachment, or something like https://azureprice.net )
                                          - maybe bump the width used by the selection panel to use more screen real estate (now only 20-30% is used typically)
                                          - small flow improvent: a size is selected -> I change the filters and the result exclude the selection -> I don't actively select another size -> I change back the filter to include the selection again -> the…
