  1. Azure Cosmos DB should support static columns

    Cosmos DB can be used with Cassandra API but it is not possible to create table with static columns. Cosmos DB should support static columns.

    • 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.

      • Support using Azure SignalR in ASP.NET (OWIN)

        Azure SignalR SDK only runs on ASP.NET Core, which is a blocker for lots of companies / existing projects.

        Please also support ASP.NET (OWIN runtime).

        • 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…

          • Azure Price calculator to show EA agreement prices

            We find the Azure price calculator very usefull (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/), however it provide the "list" prices and not our own EA discounts. One option is to build our own calculator but I assume that will be a costly development project so the question is: Is there any plan to make the price calculator "tuned" with our coroprate prices. E.g that we can logon with our AzureAD credentials and then get the correct prices?

            Or alternative solution, that the export from the price calculator to Excel inlcude the part-number (and service name) so we can do some macro in Excel…

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                    • Unlock the features for students.

                      I was excited to see Azure offered free to students via Dreamspark, but no SQL, VM, etc??? 9 out of 10 features are locked to the student license. I understand restrictions, but why does Microsoft even offer Azure to students if they aren't going to let them use it for the best Azure features.

                      Please drop the restrictions on student accounts. It will help Microsoft in the long run...students are not running businesses with these products while in school, but they might when they graduate.

                      Thanks,

                      Nick

                      • Fix Reservations IAM

                        As the Account Administrator for my enrolment, I have no view of RIs which have been provisioned under the enrolment by default unless “Owner” access is explicitly provided by the “Contributor” who purchased the RI.

                        In effect, I have no ability to manage RI resources by default; and I may potentially not even know of their existence until I receive the quarterly invoice.

                        Please make the RIs accessible as per the standard IAM policy which applies to all other Azure resources (ie. Account and Service Administrators by default can view).

                        The Azure Doc (link below) states that "By default, the…

                        • Need a function to disable Server: header in HTTP response from Application Gateway

                          Currently, Application Gateway sets Server header like a "Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0" in HTTP response.

                          For some security reason, I want to delete this header in HTTP response.

                          If Application Gateway has a function to enable/disable to add the header, It will be more useful.

                          • Azure MFA needs anti-phishing features such as include location details and notification to users about new devices

                            Users can sometimes approve MFA notifications on their device because they do not know whether it is their device authenticating or a hacker who has phished their credentials. Therefore, to help users know why they are being asked to accept authentication include additional details such as the application name, IP address and location in the MFA prompt. Apple includes the location and a map of the location in their own two-factor implementation.

                            Additionally, users should be notified with an email any time a new device is used to authenticate to their account.

                            • 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.

                              • 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…

                                  Currently Azure is not supporting AAS as a datasource. Suppose i created the Datamodel in AAS and i want to use same in another AAS model, it is not working. Can we have any idea when it will support AAS as a datasource

                                    • Provide a download of the new Azure portal icons and logos for use in diagrams etc

                                      I'd like to use the new Azure icons in a diagram but only the old classic portal icons are available for download. Please provide them in SVG format (at least).
