  2. File Sync with Service endpoint/FIrewall enabled Azure file Storage

    Currently Azure File sync is not able to sync with a file storage which activates firewall function (and Service endpoint).

    Enterprise data often contains secret data. Therefore I need that file sync can be used with file storage which activates firewall function.

  3. When moving a resource

    When moving a resource (or resource group) to a new subscription.
    ask for real movement after the validation, this would enable a dry test upfront for planning

  4. Add slider bar

    Add slider bar in Choose VM Size pane in portal.azure.com when you do View all so you don't get the whole sha-bang all the time

  5. Azure Cosmos DB should support static columns

    Cosmos DB can be used with Cassandra API but it is not possible to create table with static columns. Cosmos DB should support static columns.

  6. assign Security Group to Authentication Method

    Add the option to assign a security group to specific authentication methods.
    i.e, Security Group "Azure Security Question" can be assigned to the Security Question authentication method. So that only objects in the group are given the Security Question method.

  7. mfa nps extension for rds bypass wan ip

    It would be great to bypass MFA for RDS to given WAN IP adresses. So the users can login directly only from the office.

  8. Expose IP address ranges via API

    You can download an XML file of Azure IP address ranges from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41653. It's updated weekly.
    It would be nice to be able to access this list via an API so that we could automate any changes required when the Azure's IP address list changes.
    Kind of like what Amazon does: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/aws-ip-ranges-json/

  9. Make Windows Server 2016 Core available

    Not every role is available in Nano. I don't need full GUI for domain controllers for example, but can't deploy on Nano.

    Perhaps other roles are coming in Nano, but in the meantime make core available, as it is for Windows 2012.

  11. SQLCMD Unexplained behaviour returning output starting with square brackets

    complete explanation at https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/b0c08c5d-a6aa-4ec7-9b54-87807cf81548/sql-server-2012-sqlcmd-unexplained-behaviour-returning-output-containing-square-brackets-?forum=sqltools

    Basically, SQLCMD does not behave the same way since SQL 2012 when a message starts with an opening bracket.
    The following command returns an empty string when previous version returned the entire text:
    sqlcmd -b -E -S -Q "RAISERROR('[A][B][C]',10,1)"
    this one removes the firs value between brackets:
    sqlcmd -b -E -S -Q "RAISERROR('[A] [B][C]',10,1)"

  13. Moving countries shouldn't mean creating a new account

    I recently moved from Belgium to the Netherlands. I changed banks and therefore credit cards at the same time.
    To be able to use my NL credit card I have to close my existing Azure account and create a new one with a different email address just so I can use my NL card. Short sighted. Inefficient. Unfriendly to non-US based customers who never leave the US.

  16. Unlock the features for students.

    I was excited to see Azure offered free to students via Dreamspark, but no SQL, VM, etc??? 9 out of 10 features are locked to the student license. I understand restrictions, but why does Microsoft even offer Azure to students if they aren't going to let them use it for the best Azure features.

    Please drop the restrictions on student accounts. It will help Microsoft in the long run...students are not running businesses with these products while in school, but they might when they graduate.

    Thanks,

    Nick

  18. Add support for Remote Desktop to the Azure Application Gateway

    Add Azure Application Gateway (With WAF) support for RD Gateway traffic.

    Currently I can only route traffic for RD Web through the application gateway. It would be useful if I could route all RD traffic through the application gateway and not have to have multiple public IPs and Traffic Manager profiles and split RD Broker/Web and RD Gateway traffic.

    At the moment I can't even route RD Gateway traffic through Application Gateway even with WAF disabled.

  19. Add date and date range sorting and filtering to Bing Search API (Web)

    Allow API users to sort and filter their searches/results by a minimum/maximum date or a date range when performing Web searches. It would also be a great help if the Bing.WebResult included the date.
