  1. 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…

                    • 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.

                        • 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…

                                        • Support for AMEX card for Microsoft India

                                          Corporate orgs only use AMEX card for payment options. I had to cancel my subscription as reimbursement was not allowed by the company for non corporate credit cards.
