  1. 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…

    • 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…

      • RateCard metadata with their spec information

        I want to get RateCard meter metadata with their spec information (e.g. size, memory, cores...). Because I have to provide that data to our finance department.
        I can get the spec information of VMs by Get-AzureRmVMSize API, but they do not have MeterId, so can not associate with RateCard meter metadata.
        And I also want to get them about SQL Database, Redis Cache, and App Service. But they do not have API which can get their spec information in the first place.
        I think it is very useful if can get meter metadata with their spec information by RateCard API.

        • Feature of testing if alert mail or message would be sent correctly in Azure Monitor.

          When I create an alert rule in Azure Monitor to send an email, I want to test if the email would be sent and received correctly.

          Now, it doesn't seem to have this feature in Azure Monitor.
          So it is better for me if there is this feature.

            • Enable pausing Azure SQL DB/Azure SQL Managed Instance

              Enable the ability to pause Azure SQL DB and Azure SQL Managed Instance like what is available in Azure SQL DW or VM.

              Importing/exporting the data is not a viable option for most dev/test environments that need to be started/stopped quickly and easily.

              • users want to set up the MFA Setup Wizard later

                In the MFA release plan of a large company, thousands users are impossible to actually "force" from the day.

                So, the user needs a period which setting for the MFA can be skipped, before force setting period.

                In the period, it provide a selection such as "set up later" in the MFA setting wizard at the initial sign-in.

                if someone wants to ask questions about MFA, etc...
                they can not access any Office 365.

                  • 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…

                      • Key Vault like as RA-GRS

                        Currently, Key Vault have redundancy and availability, but I can not access to secondary region manually.
                        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/key-vault/key-vault-disaster-recovery-guidance

                        Region fail over is automacically, however I would like to access to secondary like as RA-GRS of Azure Storage before than failover because I want to more enhance BCP of our services.

                        * I guess, Azure doesn't occurred region failover so far, but services failur occurred sometimes in regions.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • Enterprise Applications Search Improvement

                              We are unable to use the Enterprise Applications blade to find our applications. The interface only lists the first 20 applications. You cannot even download a list of them. In order to search for one on the list you have to know what letters the application name starts with. You cannot do partial search on part of the name, you must start with the first name. This is a HUGE problem if we forgot the name of an application.

                              For example. We created an Application called Ameris Webex. It is not listed in the first 20 applications, therefore we have…

                              • Allow firewall rules on Azure SQL DB to be removed via ARM templates

                                Currently it seems that because the firewall rules for an Azure SQL DB are just proxy resources in an ARM template that you can not remove them via this mechanism. If you remove them from the ARM template, they are not removed from the Azure SQL DB resource. This means that it is not possible to properly source control the configuration as the source controlled configuration can differ from reality. I think it is vital to allow people to properly manage the Azure SQL DB as code that you work allow the rules to be removed via the ARM template.

This country lack of a power supply system you can rely on for business, so the cloud is our best options. Please consider adding Haiti in the list of supported countries while signing up for Microsoft Azure.

                                    We deployed the Application Gateway on the subnet where NSG's In-Bound rules is set. In the result, we got the status of backend health is 'unknown'. We got the 'Healthy' status when the NSG doesn't associate to subnet. Even if NSG's In-Bound rules is set, We'd like to confirm the backend health.

                                        • Server Uptime Dashboard

                                          OMS with a connected server/service up-time/availability Dashboard.
                                          Up time % for the last month/Quarter/Year
                                          This is basics ;)
