  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. Allow Finance Teams to access invoices

    It should be possible to add secondary users to the account administrator page so that Finance teams can manage invoices. Curently we have to login, download the invoice then forward it to finance. This is inefficient

  7. 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…

  8. Provide 'disable lock' functionality

    The resource locks are great way of preventing the accidental deletion or modification and I usually lock the whole resource group with 'delete'. Quite often though I have to modify some simple setting like removing the rule from security group. In order to achieve that I have to:
    - Delete lock
    - Delete rule from security group
    - Create lock again
    It would be easier / faster if I could temporary disable the lock instead.

  9. Add ssh public key in metadata 169.254.169.254

    When querying for http://169.254.169.254/metadata/instance?api-version=2017-04-02 in an instance, we can't get the public ssh key to configure the instance. When not using the linux agent, it could be nice to be able to access this user data. FYI AWS & Aliyun already does this (it's an entry called public-keys)

  10. Create a Windows Key Storage Provider (KSP) that effectively allows usage of Azure Key Vault as a virtual hardware security module (HSM)

    If windows could use Azure Key Vault as a KSP, it would better secure the private keys of any certificates in Windows - effectively acting as a virtual hardware security module (HSM). I believe this would enable migration of workloads that require a HSM to Azure, and reduce cost for on-prem workloads that might otherwise require a HSM. It would also make it easier / more secure to setup a public key infrastructure (PKI) / certificate authority (CA) in Azure -- or even on-premises for that matter.

  11. Machine Learning workbench connection request

    Machine Learning workbench requires Internet connection, but please also support connection via VPN and via Express Route.

    Also, I want you to be able to use some functions even in an environment without internet connection.

    ----In Japanese---
    Machine Learning workbench はインターネット接続が必須ですが、VPN 経由での接続やExpress Route 経由での接続もサポートしてほしい。

  12. Network Security Group Counter logging - Source IP

    Using NSG Diagnostics combined with Log Analytics gives us much needed visibility of our rule hit counters, great stuff!

    Unfortunately there is no information within the counter logs to inform us the source of any such hits, which really limits the usefulness of this information.

    Any chance that could be added to the diagnostics logging output for NSGs?

  13. Allow customization for SSPR Pages

    Allow for organizations to customize the SSPR pages...particularly verification page and the page where users actually reset their passwords (both for sync'd and cloud only accounts)...for example, being able to post more details on the Get Back Into Account Page...or, providing users with the company password policy, so they do not run the risk of not making it long or complex enough multiple times and getting locked out

  14. Please open a French Azure Datacenter

    France has many laws regarding datas security, and in some sector like healthcare, it's impossible to host stuff outside of France.

    I'd be a very good news for us that Microsoft could open a datacenter in France :)

  15. Allow azure websites to reverse proxy to hybrid connections

    I am trying to connect an azure website using reverse proxy to an internal site over a BizTalk hybrid connection. I have setup the reverse proxy web.config file to point the azure website to my internal site over the hybrid connection. Example www.mysite.com points to http://server1:8080 Seeing this error when I attempt this:

    The specified CGI application encountered an error and the server terminated the process.

    Is this supported? What address should I point my reverse proxy too?

    Sample config:

    configuration>
    <system.webServer>
    <rewrite>
    <rules>
    <rule name="ReverseProxyInboundRule1" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="(.*)"/>
    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://SERVER1:8080/{R:1}"/>
    </rule>
    </rules>
    </rewrite>
    <urlCompression doStaticCompression="false"/>
    </system.webServer> …

  16. Customize claims in id_token to be issued by Azure Active Directory

    Currently claims in id_token is not editable. So far developers must use graph apis to retrieve user's attributes that are not included in id_token, but if admins can edit claims to be included in id_token, they can get additional claims more easier. And in case of the application is placed inside of firewall, it is not easy to connect to Azure AD graph endpoint from the application directly.

  20. NV series with Premium Storage

    I would really like it if the NV series offered Premium storage. We have apps that require a GPU and high performance. Azure seems to keep offering new versions of the NC series while ignoring the NV series.
