  1. You should provide details about Bing Search API usage like in Google Custom Search.

    No GUI page about the usage. It is a must in my opinion. I attached pictures about my GCS diagrams. I had overcharging problems also, was hard to identify, needed lots of effort from Microsoft customer service as well. Thx Yevgeniy:)

    • Get the Active Directory IP address configured in Azure Classic portal via C# API or PowerShell command

      In our application, we get the Domain IP address configured in classic portal as an input from user. We need to validate the Domain IP address provided by customer is valid or not.

      So if we have any API to get the list of Active Directory IP address configured in Azure Classic portal via C# API or PowerShell command, we can validate the same.

      • Improve the reliability of App Services networking

        When connecting apps to a gateway and vnet using networking in app services, we see random drops in connection that cause about 2 minutes of down time. This happens because the worker in the background is being moved to a new host and the point to site connection drops and has to be re-established. Retry logic only goes so far if the connection isn't there. Apparently the reconnect is supposed to be fast but it's been our experience that it takes a couple minutes. I'm not sure if ASE's suffer the same issue, but they are also 2-3x more expensive…

          • Add Azure and AWS IP ranges to easily restrict traffic without using Powershell

            Currently adding Azure or AWS IP addresses need to be done by Powershell commands and also need to be updated every time an IP Address change. People need this to be easily configurable

            • Feature Request: Restore Azure VMs on existing instance

              We want to share our feedback on restoring Azure VMs. Current process is to Restore VM with a new instance and it has different IP Address, Rules etc. But we want to restore these Azure VMs on the same existing instance. For example: I have Test1 Azure VM, if i restore this VM, the restoration should be done on Test1 only.

              • Support latest rest version in Azure Storage Emulator

                Currently you cannot use the latest Azure Storage Emulator (5.2) with the latest Storage Client Library (8.3.0) because the SCL supports '2016-05-31 REST version' and ASE doesn't.

                You will receive the error 'Invalid storage account 'devstoreaccount1'. Please make sure your credentials are correct.' if you try and connect to it.

                It is suggested by others to downgrade to SCL 7.2.1, but that is a no go if you happen to be using .NET Standard 1.4 in your project.

                • Ability tp Recover Express Route under new subscribtion

                  Hi - I need to move an Express route from an EA sub to CSP. It is not possible, but only to share the Express Route between the two. I found that Express Route creates dependencies and during move of other resources validation sets a stop for the proces.
                  Is it possible to reuse service key, re-create circuits and other after deleting an Express Route? If so - do you have any documentation.
                  If possible create an official "How to move an Express Route between subscriptions in Azure"

                          • There is an error in the number of connectable disks of portal D8 v3 / D16 v3

                            There is an error in the number of connectable disks of D8 v3 / D16 v3 size of portal virtual machine.
                            D8 v3: 8 / D16 v3: 16, but correctly it is D8 v3: 16 / D16 v3: 32.
                            Because the number of data disks recognized by the portal is incorrect, depending on the number of connected data disks, you can not change the size even if disks within the support range are connected.
                            (I can change the size from Power Shell)

                            • allow Work accounts to change Azure ADs for a Subscription

                              Here is one thing we find extremely annoying: Even though many of the Classic Portal features are getting ported to the new Portal, the ability to change the Azure AD for a Subscription is not available, yet. As if this would not be enough, it still requires a Personal Microsoft account. It's impossible with Microsoft Work accounts.

                              We are managing multiple Subscriptions in a single account and have a team - all with Work accounts - managing it. It is a shame, that we need to keep one Personal account, just because Work accounts cannot be used to associate Azure…

                                • 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…

                                        • 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.
