  1. 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…

  4. Add support for Remote Desktop to the Azure Application Gateway

    Add Azure Application Gateway (With WAF) support for RD Gateway traffic.

    Currently I can only route traffic for RD Web through the application gateway. It would be useful if I could route all RD traffic through the application gateway and not have to have multiple public IPs and Traffic Manager profiles and split RD Broker/Web and RD Gateway traffic.

    At the moment I can't even route RD Gateway traffic through Application Gateway even with WAF disabled.

  5. 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;…

  6. PIM add support in the Graph API to query Azure resources roles audit logs.

    We can query Azure AD roles in PIM for our conformity report but have to log-in to the portal manually for PIM roles on Azure Resource.

    Works for PowerBI Admin Roles but not for "Contributor" role in Subscription X.

  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. Application gateway should have the capability to store certificate in Azure Key Vault

    Currently Application gateway does not store certificate in Azure Key Vault. We believe that Application gateway should have the capability to do that. This will give customer more control over their certificate than saving it in Microsofts encrypted storage.

  9. 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.

    Request to increase the mod_security limit for following attributes : SecRequestBodyLimit 536870912 SecRequestBodyNoFilesLimit 536870912

    Many others…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  14. 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!

  17. 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…

  18. Swagger API for Time Series Insights

    The Time Series Insights API is really powerfull but documentation (query API, syntax) contain some documentation mistakes regarding aggregates. As a developer I need a lot of time to analyze the queries and responses to get the rights fields. As a developer I would like to use a swagger api which allows me to test queries and generate clients.

  19. Create PowerShell cmdlets to manage Hybrid worker group settings

    Please, provide PowerShell cmdlets to manage Hybrid worker group settings like "Run As credential".

    Currently, I have to use the Azure Rest API in order to change the RunAs Credential used by the Hybrid Worker Group.

    It would be nice to be able to do it using AzureRm cmdlets that I can run in the same Azure Context as all other AzureRm cmdlets.

  20. MFA

    Update the Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) Gui so we can see any account that is NOT enabled or enforced. Seems like a basic setting but I cannot find any resource to help identify these risks and it is troubling (and manual).
