  1. Allow python machine learning functions in Stream Analytics

    Would be helpful for models and data pipelines created within python/jupyter notebooks

    • AWS vs Azure Security Features Comparison

      Following link lists down a comparison of AWS vs Azure Services.

      https://goo.gl/Nu78dG

      It would be great if you can list down a features comparison as per each offering i.e.

      Azure vs AWS (WAF, LB, DDoS, CloudHSM etc.) security features.

      Note: Once again, I am specifically requesting for a comparison of features not services ?

      Thanks

      • Add functionality to view tables within an Azure SQL database.

        There is no way you can see which tables are part of databases you use in AZure sql server whereas there is a query interface to perform queries on them. Meaning i have to switch between SSMS and Azure query interface to see what tables I need for a join for instance.....

              Currently when creating a new NSG rule in portal or PowerShell with a famous port number as the service, the service will be convert to the pre-defined one even if I choose custom service. I want that the service remains to be the custom one.

              • Add support to Automation for AZ CLI

                AZ CLI in BASH is powerful, easy to use and has commands such as file copy batch that are superior to PowerShell. It would be great to add CLI support for Automation / Run Books to keep efforts consistent.

                • domain services

                  Upgrade the Azure AD Domain Services Domain Controllers to be Windows Server 2016 instead of Windows Server 2012 R2.

                  We've switched to having our domain be AAD Domain Services and connected to our Office 365 domain and we'd like to enable Windows Hello for Business, but until those domain controllers are upgraded we can't utilize it. This makes the nice fingerprint scanners on our new machines useless.

                    • ability to insert Win Server source files -virtual DVD drive

                      Hi

                      Sometimes VMs has limited internet connection.
                      With that issue comes limited availability to source files, when installing features.
                      Could you pls. add ability to add sourcefiles to either image or let it be inserted by using virtual DVD drive. that way we could point to "E:\source\sxs" when installing features/roles.

                      It is a pain to upload files just to install .net 3.5

                      Kind regards
                      Asger

                      • Mananged disk export directly to storageaccount instead of creating URL

                        It is not yet supported to directly migrate a managed VM from one subscription to another.
                        It would be nice to have export directly to a storage account instead of creating an URL.
                        It will just make migration so much easier and more secure, than having an URL, that is public accessable..
                        kind regards

                        • Azure Backup of single drives of a VM in Azure

                          It would be nice if I could select drives to have a backup of with Azure backup of VMs in Azure.
                          Example: Fairly large VM with SQL2012 or newer installed.
                          That way I could let Azure backup handle OS and let SQL do backup directly to storage account and have SQL handle retention etc..
                          This will also allow to differentiate between retention for OS and for SQL data.

                            • Import/Export Time Series Insight

                              I am missing the possibility to import and export the Time Series Insight module from resource groups. Right now I can't export any resource group containing "Microsoft.TimeSeriesInsights/environments". As this is a quite costly module I have to set up and tear down the module and it's settings manually each and every time for testing, which is quite painful.
                              I would highliy appreciate the inculsion of Time Series Insight into the group export and import.

                                • Setup quota's and quota alerts azure backup

                                  Hi,

                                  I think it would be great if we can manage storage quotas's or at least get alerts once a 100GB milestone is closing in .

                                  At this moment a recovery vault just grows uncontrollably, and it is really hard to keep track of the costs.

                                  Kind regards,

                                  Daniël Veldman

                                  • Provide PowerShell script when performing functions on the portal

                                    When you do something like power on a VM, change a NIC setting or create a Virtual Network etc, it would be nice to be able to see the PowerShell commands that are needed to make this happen so we can automate easier. VMM does this already.

                                    • Provide E-books in other formats than PDF!

                                      PDF is a very static format and does not scale well (at all) on a 7 inch screen that my tablet has! Please ensure that different formats are available that does scale!
                                      Thanks in advance

                                      • Logic app service bus message trigger.

                                        Currently logic app service message trigger should poll every 1 mins to check any message exists and every trigger cost the customers and we would like to trigger executed automatically with out polling the trigger every 1 mins whenever message received to queue/topic.

                                        • Traffic manager https

                                          Why dont subdomains of trafficmanager.net automatically support https? Similar to azurewebsites.net.
