  1. Using a system assigned managed identity to connect to Azure AD

    Using a system assigned managed identity to connect to Azure AD corresponding to the way it is also possible for Azure Resources with Add-AzAccount -identity.

    It would be useful for the assignment of Azure AD groups to Azure resources in an automated way.

  2. Public licenses dependency Web page

    Currently, there is no place to find license dependencies. This is crucial to being able to assign licenses correctly without the need to contact support where there is an internal site with this information.

    This will enhance Customer knowledge and reduce Support cases.

  3. Authentication tenant restriction - Permit authentication only in our own tenant and permit access to other tenants only as guests

    When we did all the tests to implement the tenant restrictions, we only put our domains in the "Restrict-Access-To-Tenants" proxy header and we were able to access other tenants as guests.

    Now, if the destination tenants are not in the list, our users that are guests in another tenant cannot access resources outside. It’s impossible for us to manage one list of all the tenants where our 6000 users could become guests.

    We would like to authorize the connection to other tenants as guests if the authentication is done in our tenant.

  4. Support ICMP traffic by NAT gateway

    Currently instances deployed behind nat gateway can't ping public resources because NAT gateway does not support ICMP traffic. Please have support ICMP traffic as well

  5. FIDO2 support for Face ID / Touch ID on iOS / macOS or Android

    Currently Azure only supports USB or NFC FIDO2 keys (or Windows 10).

    With the release of iOS14 / macOS Big Sur Apple's Safari supports FIDO2 with Face ID / Touch ID.

    This turns your device into a FIDO2 key.

  6. Add a command to see the list of minor versions available for ARO clusters per region

    Currently, there is no way to know which minor versions for the ARO cluster are available in Azure.

    It would be great to have something similar to the command we have for AKS.

    I mean something similar to this AKS command:

    az aks get-versions --location <region> --output table

  7. 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.

  8. Automatic blocking of malitious traffic on bastion would be great

    In network watcher, we can see malitious traffic was detected but allowed by bastion host. It would be great if bastion have a default blocking setting on these malicious traffics.

  10. 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).

  11. Azure Event Grid RBAC support for topic/domain operations

    Please provide support for RBAC authentication for Event Grid topic and domain operations. This is since it is currently available just for subscription related operations. One should be able to authenticate applications with RBAC to create topics, publish events to topics, etc. Thank you!

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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).

  18. 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.

  19. 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).

  20. 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…
