    • sandbox

      Billing useage for CSP Sandbox environments.

      At the moment you cannot view usage in for CSP sandbox environments and becomes very frustrating when you cannot tell that the $200 per subscription is hitting the limits.

      Surely this cant be that hard to implement as its there in live?

      • Increase cloud service quota!

        Increase cloud service quota to 300 because we reached this limit which is really painful.

        • Vertical scaling without reboot

          The ability to scale vm up or down without rebooting, pause and update system is better that rebooting a db or worker in the middle of an operation.

          • Allow the currency on the billing to be changeable.

            Azure currently do not allow the billing currency to be changed. The claim is that the terms and conditions are tied to the currency of the country selected.
            Also, the payment of a bill is tied to having a credit card in the currency of the country you started with.

            If a company changes it's country this means Azure want you to setup a new account and migrate all services to the new account.

            This requires planning time, costs and risk (of bad planning).

            AWS allow the currency to be changed from a drop down menu.

            It is a high…

              • Include the boot diagnostic screenshot thumbnail on the overview

                The screenshot provides basic diagnostic info regarding the status of the VM. Even the thumbnail will tell, at a glance, the difference between a login screen, blue screen, and boot logo.

                • Improve SSL Certificate Installs

                  The process of updating your existing SSL certificates on an application gateway is overly complicated. Focus on making this a better user experience that doesn't require power shell and with clear instructions and documentation. Renewing SSL certificates isn't a task anyone wants to do and today's poor user experience is a detriment to the product.

                    • MFA deligate control to service desk

                      We do not want to make our service desk Global Admins, but we do want them to be able to manage MFA access for our users. Azure MFA does not allow this, which means we are having to buy another product on top on Intune etc.

                      • Register icon in the Microsoft Integration Runtime Configuration Manager

                        In the recent update, i face difficulty in registering the gateway keys.
                        It would be easy if we have some option called register like before.

                          • Selection of snapshot retention period by "Instant Recovery Point & Large disk support" Azure IaaS VM Backup

                            We want to specify the snapshot retention period on a virtual machine basis.
                            However, it is currently registered on a subscription basis and snapshot retention is 7 days which we cannot change.
                            We need more flexibility like mimimun snapshot retention is 1 day or set the retention by each VM.

                              This is a private preview by subscription unit.
                              Currently, the snapshot retention period is "7 day", but in the future user can select the retention period on a virtual machine basis.

                                  • Allow admins to customize the text on the SSPR site. It would be nice if the text stated they could change their password on the SSPR site.

                                    Currently there are two different pages for resetting and changing the user's password. Why not combine both reset and change on the same page? Technically you can change it through SSPR, but the text does not say it can.

                                    • Create a Windows Key Storage Provider (KSP) that effectively allows usage of Azure Key Vault as a virtual hardware security module (HSM)

                                      If windows could use Azure Key Vault as a KSP, it would better secure the private keys of any certificates in Windows - effectively acting as a virtual hardware security module (HSM). I believe this would enable migration of workloads that require a HSM to Azure, and reduce cost for on-prem workloads that might otherwise require a HSM. It would also make it easier / more secure to setup a public key infrastructure (PKI) / certificate authority (CA) in Azure -- or even on-premises for that matter.

                                      • Support URL encoding in Emotion API

                                        Currently, the `url` parameter for the Emotion API does not support URL encoding characters such as `%2F`, which are used by services like Firebase Storage to store files in buckets.

                                        Example image: https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/mastercard-ai-talk.appspot.com/o/test-demo%2F4bbfac5b-819e-4b81-97f2-731d25657968.jpg?alt=media&token=f98d2583-210f-4d39-8879-64671e2d4b71

                                        Example request:

                                        POST https://westus.api.cognitive.microsoft.com/emotion/v1.0/recognize HTTP/1.1
                                        Host: westus.api.cognitive.microsoft.com
                                        Content-Type: application/json
                                        Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key: ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

                                        { "url": "https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/mastercard-ai-talk.appspot.com/o/test-demo%2F4bbfac5b-819e-4b81-97f2-731d25657968.jpg?alt=media&token=f98d2583-210f-4d39-8879-64671e2d4b71" }

                                        Response:

                                        {
                                        "error": {
                                        "code": "FailedToDownloadImage",
                                        "message": "Failed to download the image from the URL."
                                        }
                                        }

                                        • Fix the sign in functionality of Azure Storage Explorer

                                          If you look to the below post:
                                          https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/microsoft-azure-storage-explorer-november-update/

                                          Many people are struggling to sign into their organization's account via the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer... I suggest you fix this issue because it is extremely annoying and hinders the use of your application.
