  2. Improve Free/Trial/Entry level offers

    Azure is prohibitively expensive for small businesses and new/poor developers.

    £150 for 30 days is not long enough to get up and running and to make a viable website/app to cover the costs.

    Suggestions:
    -Allow users to use the free credits over 12 or 6 or even 3 months.
    -Or return to your previous offer with free monthly credits for a year.
    -Or offer SSL on the shared plan. (sites without SSL are not an option)

    £50-£60/pm for a basic website with custom domain and SSL is ridiculous.

    I feel my only option is to abandon Azure and look at…

  3. Outstanding Payment

    Need Payment history and total outstanding per subscription.

    As a subscriber I can only see invoices at azure, but there is no payment history which tells me how and when azure has captured this payment.

    It is our legal right to see the payments captured by AZURE. Tomorrow AZURE go and capture another payment from my card how I will reconcile which payment is for what.

    If you are taking payment then you must show somewhere that we have captured this payment via this way against this invoice or for this purpose.

    Also there is no way I can see…

  4. Stricter UD Walk Time Frames

    Currently, UD walk's seem to happen at any random time. Which for web app's that are on a single instance can mean downtime during the cold boot phase. These should really be applied out of hours/early morning (time zone dependant on your service plan location) to avoid major disruption. In a particular instance, we had 3 UD walk's within 2 days during normal business hours. I know this can be avoided by scaling the instances but really shouldn't have to be a requirement.

  5. Permalink for Azure status history

    Currently, Azure status history ( https://azure.microsoft.com/status/history/ )doesn't have permalink. I want to have permalink per status/failuer.

    Current issues:
    * Status history feed hide status older than 90 days. I can't know older history.
    * I can't specify a specific status in history.

    Why permalink?
    * I should announse failuer or issue of Azure for customers when status updated (occurred and solved). In this case, I added evidence by quoting status report from Azure status history. However Azure status history doesn't have permalink and I should use quote always. That is weak as evidence. (They confuse and dificult look up issues…

  6. 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.

  8. api management - import OpenApi from internal URL

    It would be interesting to allow import an openapi definition from an internal URL (through VNET integration). The request should resolve with custom dns and go through VPN or Express Route.
    Now, you get errors that the URL is not publicly available.

    So, the target would be to load openapi specifications from onpremise through VNET and VPN

    Regards,

  10. Modify QnA Maker provisioning process to support selection of an existing App Service Plan instead of a new App Service Plan being created

    Provisioning a QnA Maker Service provisions a Public App Service App <yourAppsName>.azurewebsites.net, but you are not given any control over the App Service Plan for which the App Service resides. My first choice would actually be an App Service Plan in our ASE environment, but if that isn’t doable at least let us select one of our existing public App Service plans to host this in.

    A 1-1 ratio of App Service Plan to App Service is extremely inefficient.

  12. Let Web Apps to be PCI compliance

    Despite that PCI compliance is promoted at Azure, a Web App created at Azure is non compliant by default, and cannot be set-up appropriately.

    I understand that a Web App is not as isolated as an ASE (that still is not compliance by default, needs advanced set-up), with instances sharing system level settings with other clients (so cannot be changed independently), and I understand some set-up changes that apply to all clients, even ones that do not require PCI, can lead to problems to some of them.

    I propose an option to opt-in to PCI compliance at Web App level;…

  13. 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,…

  15. Add description field to NSG Rule

    It would be nice to have a way to describe the reason for a given NSG rule.

    This would greatly simplify, for instance, bookkeeping for PCI DSS 3.1 item 1.1.6 which demands a business notification for each NSG rule.

    Name field allows 80 chars but type description there is just not the right thing. Specially when you need to refer to a given rule while using CLI tools. Huge plus if it appears as a column while listing rules.

  16. GiveSetting to increase the mod_security limit for following attributes : SecRequestBodyLimit 536870912 SecRequestBodyNoFilesLimit 536870912

    we hosted application in Azure VM and configured WAF Application Gateway. But we are getting following error

    Request body no files data length is larger than the configured limit (131072).. Deny with code (413)

    For this we done so much googling and found the solution that we need to increase following parameters in the application gateway. If not possible then need configuration to by pass this limit checking so our application will not stuck because sometime application need to send request with this length.

  17. Support for BYOL on pre-built VM Images

    When I want to create a SQL Server VM in Azure and use a license I already own (Bring Your Own License) I am unable to use an existing VM Image in Azure as these are pre-licensed. It would be good if I could use an existing VM image and supply just my license key.

  19. Provide a description field for Azure Key Vault secrets

    When creating a 'secret' in Azure Key Vault you mainly got Name, Value and Content type fields to populate. It would be great to have a Description field as well to provide some verbose description/notes about the particular secret.

  20. enable Azure MFA server to accept RADIUS attribute 31 for trusted IP evaluation.

    Currently the RADIUS client must send the authenticating user's IP address via attribute 66 for Azure MFA RADIUS server to correctly evaluate trusted IP addresses. It would be tremendously helpful if that was configurable so that an admin could select a different RADIUS attribute (such as 31) for trusted IP evaluation. We use a NetScaler gateway and it will currently only send RADIUS attribute 31 (Calling-Station-Id) to the RADIUs server. Quick fix I presume!
