  1. Allow Finance Teams to access invoices

    It should be possible to add secondary users to the account administrator page so that Finance teams can manage invoices. Curently we have to login, download the invoice then forward it to finance. This is inefficient

  2. SQL Server Management Studio - IntelliSense for Azure SQL Datawarehouse

    Currently, we can't use IntelliSense for developing Azure SQL Datawarehouse in SQL Server Management Studio or even Visual Studio.
    That's a very basic feature for all developers and should be TOP(1) priority for your development team.
    Current (but not a very good one) workaround is using Visual Studio Code... but even here, there's a bug. IntelliSense only works, if the user has read permissions on EVERY database that is available on that Azure SQL Server.

  6. Provide list of SKUs for resource type through Azure REST API

    While provisioning resources using Azure REST APIs. One of the required thing is SKU. We have no API that provides list of available SKUs (if applicable) for provided resource type.

    We badly need this as there is no way to get always up to date list of SKU.

  7. alert when a VM I/O limit is reached

    When a VM hits its global VM-wide IOPS or bandwidth limit and throttling kicks in, provide a facility for creating an alert based on this situation.

    Currently, the methods to detect I/O throttling rely on collecting guest OS statistics and comparing them to the limits specified by Azure. It would be a real benefit to determine at the hypervisor level when I/O throttling has taken place and record this in customer-visible metrics. These metrics are already internally visible to Microsoft support, so the data is collected-- just not presented.

    At a minimum, the disastrous situation where whole-VM I/O throttling has…

  8. Please open a French Azure Datacenter

    France has many laws regarding datas security, and in some sector like healthcare, it's impossible to host stuff outside of France.

    I'd be a very good news for us that Microsoft could open a datacenter in France :)

  9. linkable support requests

    Currently Support Requests (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-portal/supportability/how-to-create-azure-support-request) can not be directly linked to, which makes tracking them in my own internal system and sharing them with my coworkers an difficult and time wasting hassle of copying and pasting just the identifier which they then have to search for themselves in the portal. Communication and information transfer would be much faster with simply a hyperlink pointing to the generated support ticket resource. Nearly every other resource has links which work like this.

  15. please don't send me email about "Azure product announcements and updates"

    AzureTeam@e-mail.microsoft.com

    Azure product announcements and updates

    How can you unsubscribe from the Windows Azure Team emails? They don't have an unsubscribe link. Are they doing such a bad job that they don't want people to stop receiving their updates? It's 2017, how come you can't EASILY unsubscribe from a mailing list from this service?
    Has anyone figure it out?

  16. Enable access to PDF invoices for additional users/groups for Azure Germany

    Right now, only the account administrator can access PDF invoices within Azure Germany.

    This Microsoft article describes in detail how to enable access to monthly PDF invoices for additional users/groups:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/billing/billing-manage-access

    But according to a statement from a Microsoft customer support engineer, this is not available for Azure Germany.

    Why is that?

  17. Create More Learning Plans

    I really like the Learning Plans you have posted, and I'd like to see additional Learning Plans for the following topics:


    • Virtual Networks / Networking

    • Azure Active Directory - Operations

    • Storage

    Having these plans would really help those studying for the 70-533 and, of course, with understanding infrastructure topics for operations.

    I would be willing to contribute to these, but I do not see the Learning Plans anywhere on the GitHub repo.

  18. Open a DataCenter in Chile

    Chile is a growing market. Google has a data center here and the communications infrastructure for the cities is good. If you build it they will come ! the Internet providers here still charge a premium for international traffic, ignoring the fact that they are thieves, I believe a having Azure/Office 365 presence in Chile would generate interest in the service. We are testing n Brazil, but the lack of some services and the use of international traffic is a big problem for our plans.. We are a Gold Partner interested in migrating an existing online service to Azure but…

  19. single invoice

    just like amazon aws it would be good to have single invoice for all subscriptions.

    its cumbersome for accounts department to handle multiple bills
    single monthly invoice
    subscription wise break-up
    resource wise break-up would be good

    moving from aws to azure itself a humongous learning curve
    now, multiple billing is another burden

  20. Assign users to group temporarily through PIM

    Hi,

    Currently, on the PIM, we can assign Azure roles and Azure resources temporarily to groups/users.
    It would be essential for Microsoft to add the feature to assign groups membership to users temporarily.

    Meaning that, we would like to have users temporarily assigned to some groups through the PIM and once it expires, they are removed from those groups. That would allow us to enforce the security following best practices.
    It will be essential since a lot of permissions are set according to groups, to access tier service through SAML, to access AKS Kubernetes clusters at different permission levels etc...
