  1. Authenticate to Azure Files from Azure AD joined device

    We can use Azure AD DS and AD (in preview) to authenticate users to Azure Files, but only if their device is Azure AD DS joined, or AD joined respectively. I want to be able to do this from Azure AD joined devices.

  2. Maintenance notification for “Memory-preserving updates”

    “Memory-preserving updates” should be notified to users. Because this maintenance influences the Linux CentOS users. This notification make many azure users so happy.

  3. Build a data center in Lagos, Nigeria

    Lagos is a coastal city, building a data center here will support the regional economies. It is nicely situated at the heart of Africa and can serve most of Africa. This will also play nicely with Microsoft's interests in on the continent.

    planned  ·  Tony Lanera responded

    Microsoft is expanding on its existing investments in Africa by delivering Microsoft Cloud Services including Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 directly from Datacenters located in Johannesburg and Cape Town South Africa. Initial availability is expected in 2018.

    Stay tuned for more updates here https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/?v=17.14

  4. Azure resource custom role assignments

    When configuring role assignments on an Azure resource, you're not able to change those assignments which are inherited. I have a situation where I need to lock down a resource so very few have the ability to modify/delete. The list of users who should be able to make changes, does not include those that currently have the 'Owner' role at the subscription level. I'd like to be able to disable inheritance at the resource level and be able to reassign the roles.

  6. AKS Azure IP Ranges GitHub Actions

    I'm trying to setup Authorized IP ranges on my Azure AKS but can't find GitHub Actions GitHub-hosted IP's ranges to use in az aks update -n NAME -g GROUP --api-server-authorized-ip-ranges

    Also, for all GitOps out there, it would be great to be able to do
    az aks update -n NAME -g GROUP --api-server-authorized-ip-ranges MY_IP_ADDRESS,githubactions

  8. 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.

  9. Keep notifications from previous session in azure portal

    Notifications disappear from last session. Due to this its difficult to keep track of inprogress work.
    E.g- Importing a database
    Notification - Inprogress
    After refresh notification is gone and you have no idea about the status of your import .

  11. 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.

  12. Azure Auto-Scale planned capacity increase

    There should be a option to easily increase resource availability based on existing data, like something that would reflect the phrase "Increase machine count by 1 every 30 min from 7am until 9am". Currently setting different rules for every 30 min breaks and auto scale usually raises 5 at once...

  13. Azure USGovernment should have a status page

    Azure USGov doesn't have a system status page, and I know I'll need one.

    Here's the AWS page for comparison:

  16. 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…

  17. Auto-failover to next credit card if bounced

    In our case as a startup, we do not get credit approval so that we can have invoice as payment method. So we have to have credit card.

    In distant future, if we loose the credit card and we report it lost, the next Azure payment will bounce. And what then happens automatically, is that ALL our servers are shutdown! Immediately and without further notice.

    This is a big problem since high availability is key to our product.

    There is a possibility to add additional credit card to Azure. However, there is no automatic failover: if primary card fails, then…

  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. "Managed identities for Azure resources" (MSI): support automation accounts

    It would be helpful to add support for MSI to automation accounts.

    The vision is that one could run runbooks against resources authenticating with a "System Assigned Managed Identity" rather than than a service principal or the certificate-based "AzureRunAsConnection", which need manual rotation and falls under the same security governance as service principals.

  20. LUIS API - ability to remove all utterances for particular intent.

    Our dev team is using LUIS API to generate utterances from database.

    Ofter we find issues in our utterances and we need to remove all utterances and re-generate them again. To delete utterances we're using this API: https://westus.dev.cognitive.microsoft.com/docs/services/5890b47c39e2bb17b84a55ff/operations/5890b47c39e2bb052c5b9c0b

    if we have 2000 utterances in one intent, we need to make 2000 requests to LUIS API. we would like to remove all utterances in one API call. Or at least remove them by chunks, 100 utterances at a time. This will speed up our process.

    Please add utterance batch delete API.
