  1. Stop generating random resource names

    Azure needs an overarching policy when developing new features to ensure when resources are being created that all names can be managed or templated according to sane conventions.

    Spinning up a new container service (AKS, ACS, whatever) generates many unpredictable resources and resource groups. There are many things in Azure that cause this to happen.

    Stop doing this! Please, adopt a policy across all your development teams that enforces a little more care and caution with naming and structure when automatically provisioning resources!

    • Provide filtering or white lists for Azure SQL Database alerts

      "Microsoft Azure SQL Database: Someone has logged on to your SQL server '<ServerName>' from an unusual Azure Data Center"

      ""Microsoft Azure SQL Database: Someone has logged on to your SQL server '<ServerName>' from an unusual Azure Data Center" "

      We get these when our support team in a region other than the one hosting a SQL instance connects to that instance, if they haven't done so for some period of time. There is no way for us to filter out these “noise” alerts. We should be able to “white list” our RDS VMs, or at least filter out source data…

      • create subscription unique name enterprise

        Creating new subcriptions as Enterprise Agreement thru EA Managment user GUI always creates a new subscription named "Microsoft Azure Enterprise". Next step is a lot of clicks away to rename the subscription to something usefull.

        I suggest that you add another creation page where the name of the subscription and cost center (voluntary) could be filled in during the subsciption creation phase.

        • Azure Datacenters in South Africa.

          Hi Azure.

          When the datacenters come online in South Africa in 2018, how can one be considered for preview as was the case with Canada?

          We have been using Azure successfully in USA and Canada for the past 5 years.

          We have clients that have expressed an interest in South Africa already and we would be really excited to get into a preview option.

          Regards.

          • alter when Azure initiated host node reboot action and VM does not work

            When there is Azure initiated host node reboot action going on then there is issue RDP to the VM and this is ack by MS team.
            Can MS alert the VM owner when such things happening?
            it will be helpful to the team to know rather doing troubleshoot.

                • Show reason for degraded status in Portal for Traffic Manager

                  The site just shows "Degraded" - the site does not show why it's degraded.

                                • Create Azure Batch features to logically group compute, storage, pool and jobs

                                  One of the great enablement's of azure is that you can build end to end solutions based on multiple azure products, delegate access through resource groups, and view/report total monthly running costs of a given solution and trace it back to business results and outcomes. (e.g. app-xyz with a storage account, sql db and data factory) – this can be achieved through resource groups and/or azure tags, currently either is not possible in Azure Batch at a granular level.

                                  It would be ideal to have the ability to logically group compute, pools, and jobs for delegation and costs purposes. A…

                                  • REST Guidance or iOS(Swift) QuickStart for Cosmos DB

                                    It would be great to see examples in the Quickstart for Cosmos DB for iOS that does not require an SDK, further any example that does just REST calls would be great.

                                    • offer VMs with more than 20 CPUs

                                      GCE and AWS both have single VM instances with 64 or 128 CPUs per machine, it is ludicrous that the biggest data science VM on azure is only 20 cores.

                                      • Possibility to create groups on NSG

                                        I would like to sugest the possibility to create groups on NSG, to agroup ports to same services. Like as firewall. For example:

                                        Group SAP
                                        And inside this group , all ports enabled.

                                        • Publish an API for EA portal

                                          EA portal is super important management portal for enterprise companies. But as of now- there is no way to retrieve information about departments, create departments , create accounts or provision subscriptions.

                                          To integrate EA portal with internal systems- we need an API for EA portal
