  1. Add support for HTTP method and HTTP header in "URL ping" web tests

    Lots of our API requires authorization, in these cases we need to add HTTP header to the request.

    We've had a problem with app service not accepting PUT and DELETE requests multiple times (the requests were canceled before they reached our code = they were not logged in Application Insights for example) and we want to have a test that lets us know when this happens again.

    In both cases, URL ping test would be enough we could specify HTTP method & HTTP header. It does not make sense to use multi step web tests for this & pay for…

    • Allow non-profits to use BYOL SQL licensing without requiring an Enterprise Agreement

      We are a registered non-profit with access to MS licenses via the Microsoft Donation scheme.

      I recently purchased some SQL Processor licenses from the Donation Scheme in preparation for our move away from a traditional infrastructure and onto Azure.

      However after many attempts and lots of support discussions it has become clear that it is completely impossible to set up a BYOL SQL VM in Azure without having an Enterprise Agreement.

      Even if my charity could afford an EA it would be a poor use of charity resources, and it effectively negates the advantage of having MS Donation Scheme SQL…

            • Any Azure Subscription to CSP

              Moving a subscription (PAYG, EA, etc.) to CSP umbrella is a cumbersome task. Microsoft support is either hesitant or is not ready in helping this transition of offers.
              Technically this document says how to --> https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/hybridcloudbp/2016/08/26/azure-subscription-migration-to-csp/

              But there is no luck for the people who really don't understand Azure AD tenant and its relation to the subscription.

              Microsoft is increasing the CSP partner base in FY18 and it makes sense to have support provided by MS on this transition.

              Technically, CSPs are looking for a way to migrate existing subscription to CSP with a click of a button. No one…

              • Concider bringing back an edition of home server

                I have a home server, actually its running vista, but it isn't allowed to run many things, so it won't get compromised, it is for hosting games locally, and it also serves as backup storage.

                There's a Linux based product called amahi, they have this service which can create home servers from most hardware as long as the basics are in place such as board, chip, ram, GPU, and HDDs etc

                I reckon, as you have windows 10 now with software as a service, could it he worth having a scalable but affordable version of windows 10 that has home-server…

                • Could you make office365 azure logon in linux

                  I help with the small it section in a charity, they have windows 10 and an office365 subscription, as it logs in via the azureAD platform I thought,

                  I teach people different platforms too such as Ubuntu etc

                  And the differences they had between xp and windows ten so they can get their stuff to work the way they used to without compromising the security or users made in the admin tool

                  Now my suggestion is, can you PLEASE pretty please make azure ad logon a downloadable option as simple as apt-get install product?

                  It would be wonderful to be…

                              Allow SKUs which utilize non shared vm to make host file entries. This is convenient when resources required internally are limited and don't necessitate the creation of DNS servers.

                                  Ability to migrate VMs with managed disks between subscriptions

                                  I just spent a week building out a new IaaS based infrastructure (lots of VM's, load balancers, SQL AOAG cluster) under an ARM model and managed disks - only to find that migration of VMs with managed disks to another subscription is not yet supported.

                                  I hope someone from the Azure management team understands why traditional IaaS infrastructures might begin under a test/dev subscription and then (when proved out and ready to run) – might be migrated to an Enterprise subscription. If and operations team attempts to use the latest technology…

                                    Database access is way to slow to use this in a production environment.

                                    • UWP client applications need a high-level library for using Service Fabric Reliable Actors (ActorProxy support for UWP clients)

                                      Azure Service Fabric Reliable Actors seem like a great server-side technology for multi-user applications. Unfortunately, UWP client applications cannot use the use the ActorProxy to call methods in remote actor objects (implementing IActor interfaces) because the Microsoft.ServiceFabric.Actors NuGet package only supports .NET 4.5 -- not the UWP platform.
