  1. Application Gateway Public IP to be allocated to existing Virtual Machine

    We want Application Gateway Public IP to be used and associated with Virtual machine. If we remove application Gateway , its public IP should be retailed.

    • WAF - Allow access to configure ModSecurity variables such as tx.high_risk_country_codes

      The tx.high_risk_country_code and other variables like GeoIP database need to be configured for rules in REQUEST-910-IP-REPUTATION to have any affect. These could be defaulted to a value (and documented) for now, but overriding these ModSecurity variables per instance is needed in the future.

      As it stands right now it appears that these are not configured, and are leading to people thinking they are protected by these rules when they are not.

        • Import/Export Service Add ability to prepare already copied data to the drive for importing to Azure. Our application have some data storag

          Import/Export Service: add ability to prepare already copied data to the drive for importing to Azure.

          Our application have some data storage, and we do not copy data from disk to disk.
          We read data from our storage and want to write it as a stream directly to device, which will be shipped to Azure.

          For using WAImportExport tool we must write it on local drive and then copy through this tool. There is a lot of data, so we need additional storage to copy it local. This does not suit us, we want to avoid this.

          And of course…

          • Purge inactive registered devices on Azure

            It would be useful if old devices that haven't been seen for a period of time could be automatically purged from the list of a user's registered devices. It looks like when devices are reset or different insider builds installed Azure/Intune doesn't do a good job of identifying it as a previously seen device. I found I had lots of duplicates for the same device with different build numbers and was hitting the maximum device limit (set to 20) which prevented further devices being registered. If this can't be done automatically, it would be useful to be able to run…

            • Outputters.Text - quoting: true - option creating column headers with double quotes

              Hi,
              Outputters.Text - quoting: true - option creating column headers with double quotes which shouldn't be ideally. Double quotes should be there only for column values not for column headers.

              OUTPUT @result2
              TO "/****/IndividualsData.txt" USING Outputters.Text(delimiter : '\t', outputHeader : true, quoting : true);

              • make a report of active MFA users available

                Usage reports show detailed login information by user, although billing reports only show the number of users charged for, not which users have active accounts.

                • virus checking/scanning mechanism for azure storage on file upload. Possibly optional for improved performance(bound to container).

                  It would be nice to have an integrated virus checking/scanning mechanism on Azure storage without having to rely on 3rd party software.

                  • How to take the back-up of LogicApp Run history?

                    As per LogicApp limits and configurations, storage retention is of 90 days.
                    So can we retain LogicApp run history in storage account or other storage medium?

                        • Eviction policy on blob store

                          Please add support to be able to maintain the blob store capacity
                          we need an eviction policy to delete lets say x days of unused blobs
                          also, would be great if this can be integrated with the alerts system so when an alert for say a capacity is breached this eviction policy also triggers with a param for days set by the alert.

                          as for now there is a powershell script and not an integrated solution, and the script literally itrates over all the blobs in the storage

                              • Allow VIP Swap when Staging slot is up and Running

                                Recently we had a problem where we had ~1h of downtime which could have been avoided if VIP swap wasn’t failing.
                                The problem was that 1 single VM was in a busy state in Production slot. All VMs in the staging slot were up and Running.

                                Can you please allow a VIP swap if:
                                1. All VMs in Staging slot are in Running state
                                2. There’s the same or higher number of VMs in Staging slot compared to Production

                                I know that it’s by design that VIP swap is possible only if all VMs in both Staging and Production slot…

                                • Microsoft and Azure users save $millions - unfollow the sun!

                                  Have the option for user Azure apps to 'unfollow the sun'. Un-follow the sun would mean replicating users applications around the globe to make use of off-peak electricity hours. The apps would up be operational in datacentres when low cost power is available during hours of darkness.

                                  Users may of course suffer from some lag due to their applications being hosted on the other side of the world during their own daylight hours. And there may be seconds of unavailability during handover of apps. But a new price structure could be introduced for Azure users that take up this option…

                                    • Azure backup support for larger disks

                                      Disk size for virtual machines was increased to allow 2TB and 4TB, however Azure backups does not allow this disks to be backed up and there is no option to exclude them from backups

                                      • change your pricing system for virtual machines. it's outrageous.

                                        change your pricing system. it's too expensive. i don't need a virtual machine that bad. as usual you want too much and don't give enough in return.

                                        • Selecting a recovery point in SCDPM does not indicate when there are Azure RPs.

                                          The dates on the calendar in DPM Recovery can not be selected when there is an Azure RP available. Showing all RPs will show the Azure RPs and they can be recovered from there.
