  1. Google App Engine is the best in terms of free tier for developers. I am sure Microsoft can afford it but they don't. That is too bad.

    Google App Engine is the best in terms of free tier for developers. I am sure Microsoft can afford it but they don't. That is too bad. They will likely lose new developers to google.

  2. office 365 group expiration

    Within the Office 365 Group Expiration setup there should be a way to set it such that all groups *except* specific ones are subject to the expiration setting. As it stands now it's the other way around; all groups or only the selected ones. In an environment where users are permitted to created their own groups (something I was told even Microsoft allows) you really need the expiration feature enabled by default. But there are certainly use cases where as an admin you will want specific groups exempted from this setting.

  3. Make DomainDNSName,NetbiosName & Samaccountname attributes avaialble to public to use AAD Join without AAD Connect

    We use okta for synchronizing accounts to Azure AD.

    We plan to use AAD Join for our windows10 devices, it works well with AAD Connect(As AAD Connect synchronizes attributes DomainDNSName, NetBIOS name & Onpremisesamaccoutnanme)

    Okta could not update these attributes, I want to find a way to update the attributes(by using PowerShell or GraphAPI?).

    And also would like to know if there is any possibility to sync MSDS-Keycredentiallink attribute to on-premise without using AAD Connect so that I can use windows hello.

  4. Add SQL Database & Data Warehouse as trusted Microsoft services in Azure Storage firewall settings

    When we enable auditing & threat detection on SQLDB or SQLDW, we should be able to set up the firewall setting of Azure Storage. SQLDB & SQLDW is not included in the trusted Microsoft services now.

  6. Moving IBM Mainframes to Azure

    we need an easy way to lift and **** Mainframes/ AS400 to lift and **** to Azure. instead of replatforming if Microsoft can build a layer which AS 400 or Mainframe apps can run on, can help drive consumption of Azure. Hopefully Microsoft can do it before AWS

  7. 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/

  8. Allow custom code references in Application Insights multi-step webtests

    Application Insights on Azure lets me upload a .webtest file to monitor application availability. My application is a REST/JSON service, and so my .webtest references a custom ExtractJSONRule derived from the ExtractionRule base class to pick out and check data from the JSON response. I can upload the .webtest file OK, but of course, without the custom C# code for the ExtractJSONRule, it always fails.

    Please provide a mechanism to allow .webtest files which reference one or more custom .cs files for custom ExtractionRule and ValidationRule classes.

  9. For Virtual machines, allow configurable outbound TCP timeout.

    Currently you can only configure the inbound tcp timout. The default outbound timeout for TCP connections is 4 minutes and is non configurable/by design. It's important that users have the ability to change this, perhaps up to a value of 30 which is similar to the inbound properties.

  10. Harmonize the offer types (CSP/Open/EA/PAYG)

    CSP is a great purchasing model for small and medium businesses, but has some serious problems.

    1) Migrating between CSP and any other offer is a very laboursome and expensive project (not to mention that many resources cannot be migrated). This can cause Vendor lock-in and some other major risks for customers using CSP. Currently even PAYG to CSP is not easy.

    2) CSP customers are unequal to other Azure users despite the fact that they pay the same or sometimes even more, because they do not have the same services available to them.

    3) CSP resellers have to put…

  11. Azure MFA needs anti-phishing features such as include location details and notification to users about new devices

    Users can sometimes approve MFA notifications on their device because they do not know whether it is their device authenticating or a hacker who has phished their credentials. Therefore, to help users know why they are being asked to accept authentication include additional details such as the application name, IP address and location in the MFA prompt. Apple includes the location and a map of the location in their own two-factor implementation.

    Additionally, users should be notified with an email any time a new device is used to authenticate to their account.

  13. Azure's status board availability

    The Microsoft Azure status board should live outside Azure's ecosystem just because when there is a problem with some Azure´s service, the Microsoft Azure status page may not be available for the same issue.

    planned  ·  Guy Burstein responded

    Thanks for the feedback. We are working on a fallback site for Azure Status for scenarios of Azure outages.

  14. Create the ability to remove or change inherited permissions at the resource group level.

    We have a managed service provider and some customers that need a degree of permissions at the subscription level. There are several resource groups that I do not want them to have the same level of access they have at the subscription level. For instance, I would like to remove them from the Azure Automation RG or provide them read level access to our OS image folder.

  15. For each resource creation save the date and the user

    Usually when you create a resource you do not know when was created and by whom, the information in logs is available only for a determined period of time and then lost, that is something that will be very helpful to include in the Overview section.

  17. RBAC Role for Reserved Instance creation WITHOUT Owner role on the Subscription

    RBAC role created so a group can be added for the single purpose of Reserved Instance creation, without keys to the kingdom (Owner rights). Capacity and Procurement would not need such keys as they would only be creating RI’s, following Least Privilege Access.

  18. Azure Sql Import Bacpac slow

    We are testing a production database migration to Azure SQL. The database is 50GB and even on the S3 tier we are going on 30 hours still and the import isn't complete (pegged at 100% DTU). At this point I couldn't even tell you when this will finish. I understand I could have chosen the highest premium tier to import this and it might have been quicker, however I only want to test this database and right now I've lost 3-4 days on this (importing at S0, S1 tiers). My suggestion is to allow an option when going through the…

  19. Prevent Creation of Classic Machine Learning Web Services so Tags can be Enforced

    Prevent Creation of Legacy Machine Learning Workspace Commitment Plans and classic web services so Tags can be Enforced.

    Our organization sets a Tag policy on resource groups so that newly created resources within that resource group will inherit tags. The main tag is 'Department Code', and is used for Chargeback for resource usage. Any Machine Learning 'classic' web services, that were created using the Machine Learning Studio portal will be created outside of the standard tagged resource group and thus, will not inherit standard tags used for Chargeback.

    We also need a migration method for existing classic web services to…

  20. 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…
