  1. Azure Update Management - Critical and Security Patching on CentOS

    If Azure Update Management is able to identify Critical and Security Patching on CentOS, why it relies on "yum -q --security check-update" to install them? I would like to suggest to instead of using that command, the automation can just get all the packages and the version it needs to update and do it by yum install package-version package2-version

  2. Provide list of SKUs for resource type through Azure REST API

    While provisioning resources using Azure REST APIs. One of the required thing is SKU. We have no API that provides list of available SKUs (if applicable) for provided resource type.

    We badly need this as there is no way to get always up to date list of SKU.

  3. - provide DNS Query details logs in Azure DNS zone resource portal

    In the Azure DNS Zone portal, we could only see some metrics for the query volume sum with a number but not more detail about the queries.

    It should be better to add a log to show more detail for the DNS queries in Azure DNS Zone.

  4. Allow user self consent when user assignment is required for applications

    If user assignment required is false, users can consent on their own behalf depending on the user consent settings.
    If user assignment required is true, users can suddenly not consent on their own behalf and require and admin to do so on their behalf, for the whole tenant.
    I suggest that users should be able to consent on their own behalf, even when user assignment is required to access the application.

    There is no reason to require admin consent based on the user assignment setting.
    Furthermore it is counter intuitive; If the user has been manually assigned a role in…

  6. 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 :)

  7. Headers for Static Web Apps

    I tried the new Azure Static Web Apps preview for a Gatsby project of mine. I was really amazed by the simplicity of the deployment process and the speed of the web site. There was a deal breaker, though.

    What really kept us from switching from Netlify to Azure Static Web Apps was the lack of control over HTTP headers. I need to be able to for example set the cache-control header on a per-file as well as per-directory basis. The same thing goes for the link header, although that would not break the website. There also needs to be…

  8. Request for Azure Virtual WAN Enhancements.

    With the current Azre Virtual WAN, routing (weight and community) and route filtering cannot be controlled, so when connecting to multiple corporate WANs, asymmetric communication must be allowed and routing must be done on-premises equipment.
    In the future, given the scalability of the combination of multiple in-house WANs and Azure Virtual WANs, we strongly request the implementation of a feature that allows all routing to be covered by the Azure Virtual WAN.

  11. Inheritence For Custom Roles

    When creating a custom role, I should be able to inherit from one of the existing built-in roles. The built-in roles change through time as new features come on board, so simply copying a built-in role at one point in time doesn't really help. We created our own custom code module that reads all the permissions out of role and then write them into a new custom role where we can then append or remove additional permissions. Our custom roles are then totally recreated in batch in night to keep them in sync with the latest changes to the built-in…

  13. licensing

    We use Azure AD Group Based licensing and we would prefer not to have new service plans automatically enabled under the O365 E3 license. We have a "base license group" that has 2 service plans enabled (i.e. exchange and sharepoint) and we would prefer that when a new service is enabled it doesn't automatically get enabled for all our O365 E3 licensing groups as it defeats the purpose of having groups for specific service plans and licenses.

  14. Naming policy format

    In Group Naming Policy, be able to specify format of prefix or suffix. We would like the policy to enforce a 3 letter prefix [user selectable] followed by a hyphen and then free-form text for the user. If the 3 letter prefix could be from a list we publish, all the better.

    Our use-case is that we identify a group or asset by their 3 letter assigned code, then allow free-form text. For example - "GRC-Project123" would be valid. But I can't trust the users to name Groups (Teams, Planner Plans, etc) following the naming convention we've established.

  15. Generally improve error handling in ARM deployments

    I've just experienced an issue where my deployment got stuck at the "Accepted" state for 45 minutes before I decided to cancel it. The actual cause of the hang remains a mystery, but I can make an educated guess. The resource that caused the hang (I know this because it was a linked deployment deploying only an sql server with a database) was deleted along with the resource group before I tried recreating it. Deleting this resoure probably takes more time than the Azure Portal gives the impression of (as it is with several resource types in Azure). So when…

    Azure product announcements and updates

    How can you unsubscribe from the Windows Azure Team emails? They don't have an unsubscribe link. Are they doing such a bad job that they don't want people to stop receiving their updates? It's 2017, how come you can't EASILY unsubscribe from a mailing list from this service?
    Has anyone figure it out?

  17. Enable access to PDF invoices for additional users/groups for Azure Germany

    Right now, only the account administrator can access PDF invoices within Azure Germany.

    This Microsoft article describes in detail how to enable access to monthly PDF invoices for additional users/groups:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/billing/billing-manage-access

    But according to a statement from a Microsoft customer support engineer, this is not available for Azure Germany.

    Why is that?

  18. Clear mail address from a synchronized Security Group after deleting it in on-prem AD

    Let's say you have a security group with email address, group@contoso.com, on AAD that is synchronized from on-prem AD.
    Delete the email address in on-prem AD, and run a sync. The SG now has email address of group@contoso.onmicrosoft.com.
    IMHO, the email address should be completely deleted from the SG on AAD too.
    Thoughts?

  19. Allow customisation of RADIUS access challenge reply message content for Azure MFA NPS extension

    Currently RADIUS access challenge reply message content is set in the code of the NPS extension.

    We'd like the ability to customise the reply message for challenge based authentication methods ( e.g. SMS, mobile app verification code etc ).

    For example when using mobile app verification code method, the RADIUS access challenge reply message is 'Enter Your Microsoft verification code'.

    We'd like the ability to override, this, for branding consistency / ease of use reasons.

    As the VPN appliance will take the reply message content and display it to the user as is, we'd like this control.

  20. Create More Learning Plans

    I really like the Learning Plans you have posted, and I'd like to see additional Learning Plans for the following topics:


    • Virtual Networks / Networking

    • Azure Active Directory - Operations

    • Storage

    Having these plans would really help those studying for the 70-533 and, of course, with understanding infrastructure topics for operations.

    I would be willing to contribute to these, but I do not see the Learning Plans anywhere on the GitHub repo.
