  1. Allow separate VLAN tags when peering to ExpressRoute circuits

    Currently ExpressRoute requires two client subnets, but restricts these to the same VLAN tag. It would be helpful if each of these VLANs could be tagged individually.
    e.g. currently I can specify "172.16.1.0/30" as the primary and "172.16.2.0/30" as the secondary but they have to have the same ID

      • 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…

            • Change WAF configuration: allow either changing prevention/detection by rule or disabling rule by application.

              Per application request, he wanted to change the WAF configuration to detection mode but this change can affect another applications that are locate di the same application gateway.
              We disable rule 942400 but we want to allow either changing prevention/detection by rule or disabling rule by application.

              • 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.

                • Harmonize the offer types (CSP/Open/EA/PAYG)

                  CSP is a great purchasing model for small and medium businesses, but has some serious problems.

                  1) Migrating between CSP and any other offer is a very laboursome and expensive project (not to mention that many resources cannot be migrated). This can cause Vendor lock-in and some other major risks for customers using CSP. Currently even PAYG to CSP is not easy.

                  2) CSP customers are unequal to other Azure users despite the fact that they pay the same or sometimes even more, because they do not have the same services available to them.

                  3) CSP resellers have to put…

                  • Allow Static Public IP's on Virtual Network Gateways

                    Static Public IP's cannot be used with Virtual Network Gateways. This can potentially be very problematic if a Virtual Network Gateway ever needs to be re-created or re-provisioned.

                    Example: what if we have 30 separate tunnels to a Virtual Network Gateway and it needs to be re-created or re-provisioned? This would result in a new Public IP being provisioned (takes about 30-40 minutes - of downtime!) which would require 30 remote VPN Administrators to be engaged to rebuild their side of the tunnel. This could be easily resolved by allowing Static Public IP's to be associated with Virtual Network Gateways.

                    • Allow NSG for VPN Gateway Subnet

                      We want to connect several devices with our Azure VNET via the VPN Gateway. Therefore the VPN Gateway is configured for P2S connections.

                      We want to restrict the devices so that they can only communicate with certain other devices.

                      To implement this functionality we need to assign the VPN Gateway subnet a NSG. Furthermore this NSG should be dynamic, because the IPs provided by the VPN Gateway to its clients clould not be predetermined.

                      Currently NSGs are not supported for VPN Gateway subnets as well as there is no way to control IP allocation for connecting devices.

                        • Integrate Azure MFA with the Windows login process, maybe through Windows Hello for Business.

                          From what I can see it's not currently possible to integrate Azure MFA into the Windows domain login process as a second factor. For example, if a user was to authenticate to the local AD first and then be required to use Azure MFA to add a second factor, using the Microsoft Authenticator app. This would remove the need for third party smartcards or hardware tokens.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                                  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.

                                  • Backend heath status of Application Gateway

                                    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.

                                    • Add support to Azure AD B2C for the on-behalf-of flow.

                                      In order for a web API to call another downstream web API as the user, Azure AD B2C needs to support the OAuth on-behalf-of flow.

                                      According to the following reference, this isn't supported in B2C: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-b2c/active-directory-b2c-apps#web-api-chains-on-behalf-of-flow

                                      I also cannot find this feature on the Azure Roadmap.

                                      • - ELK Cluster stack configure on within own VNET

                                        Would like to see the feature for implementing Elasticsearch (ELK) cluster stack on our own Virtual network as PaaS component like HDinsight service

                                        • Add slider bar

                                          Add slider bar in Choose VM Size pane in portal.azure.com when you do View all so you don't get the whole sha-bang all the time
