  1. Offer Azure Container Services for Microsoft Azure Germany region (whatelse is the point of modern cloud services really?)

    Offer Azure Container Services for Microsoft Azure Germany region. Not offering it makes the Germany region semi-useless, since most modern applications come packaged as containers due to the obvious advantages of deployment and better scaling with micro service granularity.

    • Scaling Branding (White-Labeling) the B2C Login

      How would one effectively implement a custom sign-in experience for multiple clients/customers while adhering to the DRY principle?

      Requirements

      -The look and feel needs to be customized to our design but the same* for all customers
      -*The logo needs to be specific to the customer

      • Have documentation created for adding DNS suffix for VMs on Model1.

        I suggest to have documentation created for adding DNS suffix for VMs on Model1. Ref #117062215932932

        After adding DNS Suffix, the VM always goes into unresponsive status and has to be rebooted via portal. At time people just wait for the M to come up on its own but this never happens. It has to be manually rebooted.

        • Thanks for the support from Corine.

          It would be nice to have a feature where we can have nested RBAC roles , so that we can manage Azure RBAC roles efficiently rather than having to update the individual permissions.

          Hope this will be released in the future.

          Cheers,
          jeethu

              • Allow webjobs to be limited to a specific number of instances when scaling out

                It would be good to be able to limit the number of instances of a given webjob when an app service plan scales out.

                My use case is a webjob reading from a queue that suddenly receives a glut of messages. As is, if the app is set to autoscale then the webjob quickly eats up CPU percentage, triggers a scale out then the new instance also grabs messages from the queue and triggers another scale out, etc.

                I know we can make a given webjob a singleton. Using this option under the scenario described above, the app service plan…

                  • indicate through the cli/portal when a instance is actually reachable.

                    The cli json output only indicates when the provisioningState: "Succeeded" however there is no indication in the json or through "az vm list" when the instance is actually reachable (via ssh or RDP).

                    This is particularly important when you created an automation workflow dependent on when the instance is reachable. The reach-ability is quite variable dependent on whether it is a GPU instance (NC or NV) or one of the compute (F -series) instances.

                      • Provide a Data Management Gateway as a service

                        Provide Data Management Gateway as a service rather than requiring the customers to create a VM for some specific functions like authenticating to online SFTP providers.

                        • Add MTOM support to the Microsoft WAF

                          We currently have a use case for utilizing MTOM to more efficiently transmit binary data in a SOAP-based service.

                          We are also trying to place the application behind a Microsoft WAF in Azure, but are unable to do so due with the WAF in prevention mode as the WAF does not currently support/allow MTOM requests.

                          We reached out to Azure support and were told that:

                          "MTOM is not supported and it's not yet on implementations plans".

                          We are requesting that the Microsoft WAF team add support for making MTOM calls to a service that go through the WAF.

                          • Recovery Services Azure to Azure between different regions

                            Hello ! At this moment we can fail over in "Azure to Azure" model only between region's locations. For example if source resource group is located in West Europe we cannot use USA as a target location. Six months ago or more there was a disaster fail of a whole region - unfortunately, I don't remember what was it. However, you will find this event in Azure event logs on the portal. I kindly ask Azure backend team - would you be so kind modify "Azure to Azure" mode and include different regions for target and resource groups please ?…

                            • Use the apiVersion flag for something

                              apiVersion is included in JSON templates. It's a great idea, which would allow the Azure servers to maintain backwards compatibility with the various API's to avoid situations where the API changes and breaks clients relying on older behavior.

                              Except that the Azure API does not seem to actually maintain any kinds of backward compatibility based on the apiVersion flag (or any other flag). The most enthusiastic Azure devs I know state that their scripts break now, "About once a month" based on API changes--which for them is a compliment! It used to be several times a week. This is not…

                              • Bring Azure API Docs in line with Windows API docs

                                Bring documentation in line with WindowsAPI docs.

                                For example:

                                Windows API generally specifies a link to the return type of a method. (We have to actually run it in Azure powershell, and sniff the methods and members, which although very possible thanks to the wonders of Powershell, takes extra time).

                                A lot of Azure API options don't sufficiently mention the possible values. For example: New-AzureStorageFileSASToken has a permission parameter which it clearly states is a String value. What are the valid values to be passed as a string? One must guess, and guess correctly. This takes time. You might think…
