  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Add SEPA Direct Debit as a payment method

    SEPA Direct Debit is the standard way to pay for regular subscriptions for European companies and citizens.

    SEPA Direct Debit is a Europe-wide Direct Debit system that allows merchants to collect Euro-denominated payments from accounts in the 34 SEPA countries and associated territories.

    Can Azure please support this payment method?

  8. Make Azure available in Haiti

    Microsoft Azure should be available for developers and businesses in Haiti. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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/

  16. 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.

  18. 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)"

  20. 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.
