  1. Turn off TLS 1.0 for login.microsoftonline.com and any B2C AD tenants

    TLS 1.0 is still enabled for login.microsoftonline.com and all B2C AD tenants. This is a security vulnerability and no one has the ability to turn this off (referencing ticket 118080218712156).

  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. Support signing up without third-party cookies (e.g. Firefox)

    In Chrome and Firefox, third-party cookies are often blocked. This prevents users from easily adding an Azure subscription to their account since the "Identity verification by card" step requires it (otherwise it just hangs forever without any form appearing for that step).

  4. 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…

  5. Add date and date range sorting and filtering to Bing Search API (Web)

    Allow API users to sort and filter their searches/results by a minimum/maximum date or a date range when performing Web searches. It would also be a great help if the Bing.WebResult included the date.

  6. App Service update history

    I would like to know the exact date and time when the Azure platform update was actually performed on Azure Portal.
    I've heard many complaints about not being able to do that.

    Many vendors need to report exact date and time to end users.

  7. 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.

  8. Renew SSL/TLS Certificate automatically through multiple subscriptions.

    Currently, Azure does not have the ability to auto renew app service SSL/TLS certificates through multiple subscriptions. With close to 100 subscriptions and hundreds of app services it is not convenient to manage and maintain via scripting efforts.

  9. Instance Metadata Service should support "standard" SKU public IP in the same way as "Basic" SKU

    A request to Azure Instance Metadata Service allows me to retrieve from the VM all the network related information (for each NIC):
    - IP address
    - Subnet
    - Public IP associated
    It is a very convenient way to discover from the VM itself which public IP it has without needing an external service.

    The problem is that only "Basic" SKU Public IP are supported while we need "Standard" SKU to support Availability Zones or reserved Public IP ranges.

  10. Support Terminate notification for spot instances.

    Spot Machines are removed immediately without any information after changing desired scale on spot VMSS and we cannot perform connection draining.

    Regular instances have following feature - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machine-scale-sets/virtual-machine-scale-sets-terminate-notification. Documentation says it is not supported by spot instances.

    If we cannot scale down spot instances, we are missing opportunity to reduce cost and it forces some customers to implement their own custom autoscaling.

    We can estimate that implementing custom autoscaling will take 2 weeks of work. It is said that maintenance of code costs 10 times more than developing so a customer can lose 22 weeks on custom autoscaling in…

  11. Standard rules engine for Azure CDN: remove limitation of 5 rules per endpoint

    The new Rules Engine for Azure CDN Standard is definitely a long awaited improvement to Azure's offering for hosting single page applications / static websites.

    After trying it out in a real project though it has currently one limitation which is a showstopper at the moment:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cdn/cdn-standard-rules-engine-reference#terminology

    "Each Azure CDN endpoint can have up to five rules."

    Let's say you have a multilangual front end app (SPA) which serves the different language versions as relative paths from under the same subdomain (CDN endpoint). And you naturally want to enforce all those lang specific sites to rewrite to their corresponding index.html…

  12. Monitor alert: Throttling Health Event's title and cause needs to be more specific rather than word like "UserInitiated"

    properties: {

        title: This storage account was throttled because it exceeded Azure Storage partition request per second, partition bandwidth, or IP scalability limits.,
    
    details: null,
    currentHealthStatus: Degraded,
    previousHealthStatus: Available,
    type: Downtime,
    cause: UserInitiated
    },

    ==========================

    Storage account throttling can be caused by busy storage partitions on the server side which is not related to customers' usage.

    The "UserInitiated" wording in the health event cause would lead to misunderstanding of reaching service limit when customers' traffic is not there yet. Maybe we can change the wording to "ClientInitiated".

    More specific alert cause can help both customers and support team to identify…

  13. Enable Microsoft support to delete purge-protected key vaults even if this has an involved process.

    We have found ourselves in a situation where we deployed purge-protected key vaults into a QA environment and could not remove these to deploy into live due to the purge protection and the common namespace that the accounts reside in. We recommend Microsoft support is able to remove such accounts even if this involves going through support and signing a digital declaration accepting responsibility. This should more so be the case for empty key vaults.

  15. Azure Artifacts: Unpublished npm packages from public upstream (npmjs.org)

    We are using Azure Artifacts as an npm feed to store a npm package that we produce, along with cached upstream packages from npmjs.org. Public upstream has been configured per your documentation, and we have enabled retention policies on the feed with the default values.

    The problem we are facing is that public upstream packages are treated the same way as package we produce - if a package/version has not been consumed for a while it will be removed in accordance with the retention policies and later also removed from the Recycle Bin. After they have been removed, either to…

  17. Add Stream Analytics to Azure Germany datacenters

    Please add Stream Analytics to the Azure Germany datacenters (Frankfurt and Berlin).

    This is a critical component to our product roadmaps, and ensures that we maintain compliance with the German BDSG federal data protection requirements in addition to the other EU data protection acts like GDPR.

    Ensuring a full set of features in the German datacenters is particularly important due to BDSG.

  18. Custom Roles AssignableScope for root ("/")

    Currently Custom roles cannot have an AssignableScope set to root ("/"). Capability must be addded to have all subscriptions federating to a certain Azure AD tenant inherit a custom role. Maybe the AssignableScope parameter must be modified to also accept a tenant id or name for the scope of the role. The global admin of the tenant must be afforded the privilege to create this role.

  19. Improve error reporting when v3 functions reach timeout

    Azure Functions supports configuring a time limit for running functions though the "functionTimeout" property in "host.json" file. When a function deployed on a v3 function runtime stack is invoked (though an HTTP trigger, for example) and it reaches a predefined timeout, the invocation fails with status code 500, but no response body indicating the type of error is returned. However, functions deployed on a v1 runtime stack produce nice error messages, similar to the one below:

    {
    "id": "75293a6d-0b04-4250-80b9-8fbe2107dbc0",
    "requestId": "4e2d55d3-cc04-4d81-a290-c439a56c3a49",
    "statusCode": 500,
    "errorCode": 0,
    "message": "Timeout value of 00:00:15 was exceeded by function: Functions.f77c362f79bf0c40a03e74e2208f860a641bb1895af73c0fcde16a598"
    }

  20. 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.
