  1. Ability to view Support plans in the Azure Portal

    The support plans to be able to be viewed in Azure Portal. When monthly statements get sent out support plans are unable to have the statement attached in PDF form automatically. This needs to be added.

  2. Azure Policy - Indexed mode policies pick up resources that don't support tags

    For example, I created a custom policy definition that audits if a tag exists. It is set mode=indexed, so only taggable and location based resources should be evaluated.

    Here are some things that are coming back as non-compliant:
    /microsoft.insights/alertrules
    /microsoft.insights/actiongroups
    /Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/extensions
    /microsoft.insights/activitylogalerts
    /microsoft.operationsmanagement/solutions
    /microsoft.portal/dashboards

  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. 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.

  5. support multiple values for the same key when tagging. If i want to allocate multiple departments while tagging i should be able to do that.

    Currently AzureRM tagging only supports one value for one key. This means if i want to tag multiple departments to one resource it is incapable of handling it.

  6. Fully private App Gateway v2

    From: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/application-gateway/migrate-v1-v2

    " v2 gateways currently don't support only private IP addresses."

    We need to be able to create fully private App Gateway V2, without public IP.

    At the moment V2 Gateways will be public facing so we need to stick with V1. We cannot rely on NSG/Firewall to restrict traffic: we need to be able to provision a private load balancer.

  7. 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)"

  8. In azure storage explorer change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store)

    In azure storage explorer, it'd be nice to be able to change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store), this feature would be very useful as we check if our processes went through sometimes by looking at the last modified date of a specific file, while we have this automated sometimes data scientists and other users can quickly tell if something is not up to date.

    Is this feature available? This only works only for Shared Access Signature but not ADLS

  10. 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.

  11. Allow tagging of "hidden" resources

    Currently, you can tag most types of resources using portal.azure.com, Powershell or any other tool for that matter. Tagging "hidden" type of resources (for example Microsoft.Network/networkWatchers) is hidden on the portal, but they can be tagged by using a Powershell script which for example tags every resource inside a resource group.

    This behaviour is inconsistent, because after this, listing tags on the portal show that the specific tag key:value pair is in use, but you won't see which resources use it. You need to rely on Get-AzureRmTag or other means to actually reveal which resources are tagged.

    As of currently,…

  12. CDN

    There needs to be a way to apply service tags to Azure CDN. When applying NSGs or firewall rules it would be beneficial to be able to use Service Tags to target the CDNs.

  13. On Azure AD Application Proxy Connectors “Internal URL”, we cannot set URL which includes “?” or doesn't end with “/”.

    On Azure AD Application Proxy Connectors “Internal URL”, we cannot set URL which includes “?” or doesn't end with “/”.
    We need to connect to on-premises apps from Azure AD Application Proxy connectors via Internet,
    then tried to set the URL which doesn't end with "/" or includes "?", but couldn’t.
    We hope this will be improved quickly.

  15. 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

  16. Add the ability to set the max IOPS the SQL / Windows Backup Extension will utilise

    There should be the ability to set the max IOPS that either extension will utilise during backup operations.

    We've a SQL workload that can be adequately served by the resources of a certain VM size other than when backups are taken (as the DB is 100GB+).

    When backups run our Availability Groups are flapping due to VM disk throughput throttling causing the backups to fail.

    We have therefore had to upgrade the VMs just to allow the backups to run. The VMs are now significantly underutilised during BAU.

    We don't have access to the SQL Server Resource Governor as we…

  17. Support using Azure SignalR in ASP.NET (OWIN)

    Azure SignalR SDK only runs on ASP.NET Core, which is a blocker for lots of companies / existing projects.

    Please also support ASP.NET (OWIN runtime).

  18. 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.

  19. Upgrade CPUs in Azure App Service Premium Tier

    Currently the "Premium" tier on App Service offers this three options:

    P1: 1VCore DSV2
    P2: 2VCores DSv2
    P3: 4VCores DSv2

    I wouldn't call this a premium tier now that we are getting into 2020...

    App service is one of the most useful services offered in Azure and it really needs an upgrade.

    Amazon's Beanstalk does not have such limitations.

    I would suggest that to upgrade the hardware/resources of the Premium tier to at least:

    P1: 2 VCores
    P2: 4 VCores
    P3: 8 VCores

    The processors model should be upgraded as well to use DSv3 or even better the F series.

  20. PIM add support in the Graph API to query Azure resources roles audit logs.

    We can query Azure AD roles in PIM for our conformity report but have to log-in to the portal manually for PIM roles on Azure Resource.

    Works for PowerBI Admin Roles but not for "Contributor" role in Subscription X.
