  1. Implement XML tag indexing on Azure Search.

    I can see JSON content can be indexed. When will Azure search index XML files?

    • single invoice

      just like amazon aws it would be good to have single invoice for all subscriptions.

      its cumbersome for accounts department to handle multiple bills
      single monthly invoice
      subscription wise break-up
      resource wise break-up would be good

      moving from aws to azure itself a humongous learning curve
      now, multiple billing is another burden

          • Sync notifications between browser windows

            If we open two Azure consoles in two browser windows the notification for one session don't show in the other.

            It would be good if the notifications were linked to the users account so that any outstanding notifications would be seen even if the browser was closed etc.

            • Send me a notification when there is a better Azure deal available

              It would be nice if I was notified if there was a better deal available than the one I had.

              For example: I had a D11 v2 VM and was paying €181.96 per month for this. I later found out that there was an equivalent VM available (D11 v2 Promo) for just €150.58.

              I would have saved money if I was notified of the better deal on the VM.

              • Add Support for Secondary DNS

                Given events of late concerning DNS outages and DDoS attacks, it would be advantageous if we could configure custom NS records in Azure DNS to use Secondary DNS.

                At the same time, support for AXFR records should be added to allow outbound zone transfers to be configured so that the Secondary DNS zone can be kept in sync automatically.

                This would then allow us to point to a Secondary DNS service like BuddyNS or DNSMadyEasy.

                  • add the Application Gateway backends to support connecting directly to App Services. Please advise on when that could be done.

                    ISSUE:
                    We are unable to connect to the app service which is added in the back end pool of our application gateway and gives a 502 error.

                      • 1 TB disk limit is not feasible for any SQL database server. When will fix this 2 years issue in Azure?

                        1) Most system don't use up to 1TB storage except the physical disk size is bigger in size for expansion. Azure should allow replication of storage utilizing less than 1 TB even though the disk is bigger than 1 TB

                                    Provide Azure region in Scandinavia

                                    A lot of companies and governments in Sweden demand that their data is physically stored in the country. By not having an Azure data center there prevents a lot of applications and services for the Swedish market to be hosted in Azure.
                                    Amazon is now realizing this and puts up 3 datacenters in the middle of Sweden.
                                    Sweden has alot of good qualities, like cheaper cooling because of the weather as well as alot of good technical personell availiable, and putting up a scandinavian region, would make it much better for all scandinavian countries, because…

                                      • Using availability sets with multiple fault and fail domains still DOESN'T give you fault tolerance!

                                        If you happened to create both VMs under the same storage account, it will NOT be as highly available as it should. Make it clear, in the portal, that you really should be using two or more storage accounts and not rely on Azure's 'supposed' fault tolerance with 3 local data copies. We've experienced several incidents in the last month related to this, where we lost both nodes due to a storage account failure.

                                        In short, make it really clear what needs to be done to REALLY have fault tolerance.

                                        • not function - absurde high security

                                          I do not want microsoft cloud services. The microsoft security is so high that it protects the cloud mainly from the user. I created a cloud account and when I wanted to connect from another computer, I had to completely fill all the entered data into other forms. The slightest error caused me not to allow access until I gave up and I will never use microsoft services! I have a lot of my computers and I sometimes need to connect from a foreign computer, which microsoft cloud can not do, and if it did, it's so complicated that I'm…
