  1. Application Gateway handling the Query parameter on back-end

    In application gateway HTTP settings when we use "override back-end path" option, it is stripping out the query parameter and retains only the resource path.

    Eg: https://<<HostName>>:443/resurcepath/invoke?api-version=2016-10-01&number=5

    It retains only "https://<<HostName>>:443/resurcepath/invoke" and ignoring "?api-version=2016-10-01&number=5"

    It will be good to retain the query parameters without doing any URL redirection etc

  2. B2B invitation status

    Azure Active Directory B2B account.

    Now there isn't possiblity to generate report, if B2B user has activated account or not. It would be good to have feature to list not activated users from administrative perspective. Example when doing acocunt clean up.

    There are fields in profile like Source which contain Invited user or Resend invitation button is visible. Those indicates if user hasn't activated invitation.

    Or even have automatic removal on directory, if invitation hasn't been approved within X days, B2B account is removed automatically. As if account hasn't been activated, it cannot be used anywhere.

  3. EA: Managing subscriptions operations by multiple users, not by single account owner

    This is regarding Azure account & subscription management in Enterprise Agreement
    There is a scenario where the account owner is not available for considerable long time due to his/her sick/vacation leave or long biz trip for example, which cause subscriptions operations downtime.
    To avoid that, we should be able to have multiple users for such subscriptions operations.

  5. Allow VNet Peering between ASM and ARM with different subscriptions

    Currently, when VNet Peering between virtual network in resource manager model and classic deployment model, the same supscription for the VNets are reqired.
    I hope we can freely configure VNet Peering between ASM and ARM with different subscriptions in the near future.

  6. Provide azure P2S VPN client for Linux

    We need to have azure P2S VPN client for Linux machines, currently it is available only for windows. When managing a large set of VMs running in linux, we prefer using Linux control machine, and we currently don't have option to use P2S VPN setup in li nux. Im sure this feature will help lot of projects in linux taking advantage of Azure migratons

  7. Allow English international user develop for Azure China a possibility

    I am very excited with Microsoft's recent announcement regarding Azure China.
    How can non-Chinese speaking MSDN developer use their monthly credit with Azure China?
    Right now It doesn't seem to understand my regular Microsoft account login...
    Isn't the whole point to allow us, to get inside mainland china?!
    My whole aim is to do just that.

  9. Allow aligning fault domains and update domains in an availability set

    In certain cases I want to manage the availability of data replicas across a cluster of machines, and can endure more downtime for greater predictability of the nature of downtime.
    An example is Kafka, where I can handle a large portion of machines going down so long as I can make predictions of how they'll be correlated so I can plan how I lay out topic partitions to keep a majority of partitions up.

    With the way availability sets are currently set up, I can limit my downtime in case of a fault, or in case of an upgrade, but…

  10. Allow for renewal of expired subscriptions by customer (expecially free trials)

    You should make this process easier or you will likely lose a lot of would be customers. You should offer the ability to renew an expired subscription to a pay as you go plan once the free trial period expires (or really I think for any expired subscription). I was shocked to find that because I got busy the day my plan expired I had to contact support to get it renewed the next day (which they responded in 12 hours and had it renewed for me, which is great but shouldn't have had to log a support ticket for…

  11. Allow Subscription Owners to Filter VMs by Service Principals

    Currently, I don't see any way to filter resources (either in the UI or via the CLI) in such a way that I can see what any given Service Principal has on the subscription. This is important for me, as I've got multiple Principals which are each tied to a different user, and I'd like to be able to have insight into what sort of resources & usage each user on my Subscriptions are consuming.

    It would be very useful to have this in both the UI for quick checks, as well as in the CLI so reports can be…

  12. Delete multiple containers at once Azure Storage Explorer

    Currently, you can only delete one container at a time from Azure Storage Explorer. Being able to delete more than one would be very valuable when handling storage management.

  14. Audit logging on Azure Files

    We would like to move our shared files to Azure Files but we can't as we are regulated to audit access to our files.
    We need Azure files to have the same audit capabilities as Office 365.

  15. rewrite the Azure CLI in Golang.

    I tweeted about this somewhat jokingly and @AzureSupport directed me here. I imagine you plan on supporting and maintaining the Azure CLI for at least the next decade, and I can virtually guarantee that the total cost of doing so will be less if you rewrite in Go now. It will also be faster, easier to install, and generally provide a better experience for your users and developers. You've got some avid gophers at MSFT like Brian Ketelsen, Ashley McNamara, Jess Frazelle, etc. Ask them what they think!

  16. Add manual and auto shutdown to Azure Container Service

    Would be great to be able to shutdown all compute within an ACS cluster, both manually in the portal, and via an auto shutdown schedule. As it is currently you have to manually shut down the master VM and the VM Scale Sets.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
