  1. Move resource(s) to another location.

    I wish I could move resource(s) to another location just like I can move it now to another Resource Group or Subscription.

    For example, I just created a new Function App, with a new Storage Account and put them in a new Resource Group. After all resources were provisioned, I realized that I forget to picked up a location I want. Instead of South Central US, I need them to be in West US.

    It would be super handy if I can just move them all to the West US location. Instead, I have to delete resources and recreate them…

    • Azure Policy For Preventing Public Blob Containers

      There are no ARM REST API properties for Blob containers which means we can't create an Azure Policy for not allowing people to ever create public blob containers.

      This is how every AWS breach has occurred due to accidentally setting storage to public.

      • E-mail notifications for "Impossible travel to atypical locations" reporting

        E-mail notifications for "Impossible travel to atypical locations" reporting. Presently admins need to watch this portal screen all day/night to see if there are new entries. It would be much better to see an e-mail notification about it.

        • Create this new Azure region : Switzerland

          Switzerland is a small country but it is one of the world’s strongest economies. Many swiss companies can't make the move to Azure because they do need to have theirs data inside the country.
          Please create this new Azure region : Switzerland !
          Thanks.

          • Billing admin

            Azure *must* allow distinct access for billing admins and technical admins. If Azure is trying to be an enterprise solution, they must not expect companies to share logins, or for technical admins to have to download and mail the billing statement to the financial admin. Every company on the planet has distinct technical admins and billing admins. I doubt that Microsoft's CTO and CFO are sharing logins.

              • Expose Partner of Record information in PowerShell for Azure subscriptions and Office 365

                Currently we need to use the web interface to see and update the PoR information for Azure subscriptions and for Office 365 license subscriptions.

                At a minimum, it would be handy to see that information in the details of Get-AzureSubscription and Get-MsolSubscription
                That way, we can easily see if any of them need to be fixed without needing to go into each one individually.

                Obviously the follow-up on that would be to add the ability to set the information.

                Thanks.

                    • Available Disk Space monitoring and alerts are not sufficient

                      The current available tools for visualizing and alerting on available Disk Space for Azure Virtual Machines should be expanded. In the Dashboards module, there is no Live Tile that would allow you to see a Virtual Machine's disks and available space. You can get some data through custom queries, but these queries are manual-refresh only and are not truly suited to a live Dashboard environment.

                      Similarly, there is no way to create an Alert for low disk space in the current Alerts module. In Alerts (Classic) there was a % Free Disk Space - this is not sufficient because it…

                                • Address the "Snowden/NSA" issues in every territory in a visible and concrete manner

                                  Let developers and consultants configure where certain data is stored (geographically) and also verify that it is really stored in the given location and does not cross international boundaries at any time. This is important for most companies since they are bound by compliance regulations, insurance, and legal best-practices that require this granularity for particular type of data.

                                    • Need a function to URL path rewriting in Application Gateway

                                      Currently, I know Azure Application Gateway has a function for redirection of URL path based.

                                      Now, I need a function for rewriting URL path during redirecting a request to backend server.

                                      For example, When Application Gateway received a HTTP request to http://www.contoso.com/test/*, it redirects the request as /images/* to backend server.

                                      In other words, I want to set a URL path for backend server in PathRuleConfig in Application Gateway.

                                      • Enable the use of Azure App Service Certificate with Azure Application Gateway

                                        Today, you have to manage your certificate yourself and provide to Azure Application Gateway a .pfx file.
                                        It would be great if we can have in Azure Application Gateway the same integration we have between Azure App Service and Azure App Service Certificate in order to handle the purchase, renewal, configuration and security of our certificates.
                                        As far as I know, the ASC team has done a seperate Resource Provider and it might be easy to integrate it with other services such as Azure Application Gateway.

                                        • Feature Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

                                          Central IP Object usable for ALL Azure Resources

                                          In this new feature (ex : Azure IP Object management) user can create IP Object (List of Ips or Subnet) this object can be added in any Azure Resources who have a Firewall (Azure SQL, Storage Account, WebApp,...)

                                          For Exemple:
                                          You create an Object "Company Public IPs" and you add in this object All your company Public IP.
                                          In your Azure resources Firewall (WebApp, AzureDB, NSG,...) you specify this Object to allowing access.

                                          If tomorrow you need to add a new public IP you just need to add this new public IP…
