  1. Reduce violations to the SCIM specifiaction

    Azure AD violates the SCIM specifiaction in some points.
    1. PATCH operations are send with an upper case character, eg 'Add'. Scim specifies all lowercase operations, e.g. 'add'.
    2. Azure AD uses filters in paths for add operations. This is not specified in the SCIM spec.
    3. The urls for users and groups have to be prefixed with 'scim', e.g. https://scimsupportedapp.com/scim/v2/scim/Users. In this example the second scim is just redundant. This is not part of the spec and forces additional implementations especially for Azure AD.
    4. Azure AD seems to always send complex types as values for Scim PATCH.…

  2. About specification that co-administrator is removed when Subscription Ownership Transfer

    When Subscription Ownership Transfer is executed, A Service Administrator will also be changed to the destination account and a Co-Administrator is removed.

    It may happen in the case of the destination account is already registered as one of the Co-Administrators, because a single account cannot be registered as both a Service Administrator and a Co-Administrator.

    I request an additional option which gives a source account administrator to leave the co-administrator setting or not.

  3. Add a SQL Server database in the DreamSpark subscription

    I beleive including a free SQL Database (MSSQL) to the DreamSpark subscription will be greatly beneficial in the education process of many students. Having a reliable MSSQL Server that can be used for learning SQL Server is very important. There's a MySQL database included in the subscription, but I believe having experience in at least two flavors of SQL is a lot better for students, especially TSQL if they intend to work with Microsoft technologies in the future.

  4. [REQUEST] Alert upcoming maintenance for single and multi-instance earlier than 1-week in advance.

    According to the official document below, Microsoft alert us to the upcoming maintenance 1-week in advance for single-instance and 48-hours in advance for multi-instance. The time we can prepare for the maintenance is too short. It’s really hard to negotiate and get the understanding of users. Please alert upcoming maintenance for single and multi-instance earlier than 1-week in advance.

      シングルインスタンスおよびマルチインスタンスのメンテナンスについて、1週間よりも前に通知してください。
      以下の公式ドキュメントによると、マルチインスタンスのメンテナンスの場合には1週間前、シングルインスタンスの場合には48時間前にメンテナンスの通知を行うとあります。メンテナンスに備えるには短すぎる時間であり、ユーザと交渉し、理解を得るのが大変困難です。シングルインスタンスおよびマルチインスタンスのメンテナンスについて、1週間よりも前に通知してください。

  6. Use different Identy as Service Administrator when creating subscriptions automatically

    We are using New-AzureRMSubscription to automatically create subscriptions. After creation we see that the Account Owner is made Service Administrator of each subscription that is created via this way.
    There is a risk that, when the credentials of this account owner are confiscated, the attacker takes over control, as service administrator/ (service owner), of all the subscriptions.
    This risk can be mitigated by having the possibility to assign a different identity as service administrator for each subscription created.
    If we create such an subscription via the enterprise portal, we already have the possibility to assign a different identity as service…

  7. Expend search criteria to more them 50 users

    When adding users to an Enterprise Application, the search only shows the first 50 result. I would suggest that this gets expended, as it a pain, if you have more then that.

  9. Don't time limit the free Azure trial

    We appreciate the free Azure credits to help many of us get started and learning. I signed up and didn't realize it was limited for use within a month. I signed up a few weeks before taking holiday and now that I'm back, the trial will be ending. Bummer.

  10. 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.

  11. Feedback concerning the feedback forum itself

    The feedback forum can use a


    • good clean-up: some of the (very) old suggestions are still present,

    • good update: some suggestions are labelled "under review" while the suggested improvements are already implemented,

    • good archive: completed and/or obsolete suggestions should have their own archive,

    and the above should contribute considerably to the Feedback forum.

    Furthermore, it would also be desirable (from time to time) to have some contact information and/or a possibility to contact Microsoft employees, in charge with specific suggestions.

    Kind regards...

  16. when a server shuts down unintentionally due to a host outage, please notify all customers affected.

    Currently MS Azure notifies customers during scheduled outages, however, in the event of an emergency outage, where a customer's server is rebooted, (due to a host hardware failure, or whatever), all customers affected should be notified as a courtesy. We had an outage and had our services not started currently due to a password issues, we would have known that the server went down.

  17. Adding resource Owner name column in Resource Properties as "created by"

    Hi Team, I am working on validating security practices and it is tough to find out who has created a resource when it is older than 90 days. It will be great in many ways if you add a field in Resource Properties like created by. Thank You

  19. allow the changing and addition of an account administrator in Azure in Open

    We cannot change the Administrator of an Azure in Open subscription or even rename the account to a customer friendly one.
    Being able to have only one Administrator of a subscription and then not being able to change that person(even through support!) is absolutely crazy - what if those credentials are lost/the person leaves and you need to urgently access the account?

  20. Add story image Thumbnails to Bing API newsResult
