  1. user account for Azure P2S VPN

    Right now Azure point-to-site VPN client only using a client certificate for all users to access the Azure point-to-site VPN. For security standpoint, this is really not a good practice. It will be nice if we can have a configuration like other VPN clients, which we can create user credentials (username & password) to connect to Azure network via point-to-site VPN without using a client certificate. This way, we can secure the connection if someone leaves our company without having to recreate the root/client certificate for all users again.

  2. Display notification that the pricing calculator does not include VAT, GST or other local taxes

    Might I suggest that a note be placed on the calculator that the price displayed is exclusive of local taxes (that should cover VAT, GST and any other sales tax...)

    I believe it is a legal requirement for businesses trading in Australia for 'ex GST' or similar if a price for a service does not include GST, or as a single value to be displayed in the case that goods and services provided are not exclusively provided to businesses.

    See https://www.accc.gov.au/business/pricing/displaying-prices

  3. Open a DataCenter in Chile

    Chile is a growing market. Google has a data center here and the communications infrastructure for the cities is good. If you build it they will come ! the Internet providers here still charge a premium for international traffic, ignoring the fact that they are thieves, I believe a having Azure/Office 365 presence in Chile would generate interest in the service. We are testing n Brazil, but the lack of some services and the use of international traffic is a big problem for our plans.. We are a Gold Partner interested in migrating an existing online service to Azure but…

    Pricing calculator - make calculating Reserved VM Instances & OS separately possible
    When choosing "1/3 year reserved" with Windows OS selected, the total price shows but "the e-year reserved VM" and "monthly paid OS" are all combined. It would be appreciated if the two can be shown as separated. (When customer orders Azure MC, they would like to know how much is paid at the point of reservation and how much is monthly fee)

  5. Add manual and auto shutdown to Azure Container Service

    Would be great to be able to shutdown all compute within an ACS cluster, both manually in the portal, and via an auto shutdown schedule. As it is currently you have to manually shut down the master VM and the VM Scale Sets.

  6. Please increase storage accounts quota limit

    I hope we could increase storage account quota over 100.
    Currently, storage account quota limit is 100, we canot icrease more.
    But if you need one storage account per VM's VHD file, it will be soon run out.

  7. Select Authenticator in Password Self service without selecting one more option

    Thanks for adding Authenticator as option to Password Self service.
    It was much awaited option as our security team doesn't want to use SMS text.

    Issue now is that we can not enable that option without selecting one other option so we are in same situation now & can not roll out this to our 40000 users as we can not just lock it down to authenticator.

  8. keyvault service within VNET scope

    Azure Keyvault is not available within the scope of VNET. Enterprise customers who are establishing private environments need Azure Keyvault within the scope of VNET. This also enables them to create DR sites including Keyvault service.

  9. Azure Data Lake Analytics R Services Compute Context

    Please add R Services (RevoScale) to ADLA such that I can use ADL in a compute context in the same way I can currently use SQL Server with R Services in a compute context; bringing the data science to the data and not the other way around.

  10. Make it easy for me to know when my VM is being throttled

    Knowing when throttling is the cause of your VM's performance woes is essential but there is no scalable way of monitoring when an Azure VM is being throttled. VM and disk maxims change according VM size and disk specification. Setting up alerts based on PerfMon and/or Metrics counters is, at best, laborious. Setting up the monitoring of:

    VM level throttling:
    *IOPS: \PhysicalDisk(_Total)\Disk Transfers/sec (PerfMon)
    *Throughput: \PhysicalDisk(_Total)\Disk Bytes/sec (PerfMon)

    Disk level throttling:
    *IOPS: \PhysicalDisk(drive)\Disk Transfers/sec (PerfMon)
    *Throughput: "\PhysicalDisk(drive)\Disk Bytes/sec (PerfMon)

    Storage account throttling:
    *Max egress: Metrics\storage_account\Account\Egress (Azure Portal)
    *Max ingress: Metrics\storage_account\Account\Ingress (Azure Portal)
    *IOPS: Metrics\storage_account\Account\Transactions* (Azure Portal)

    Does not scale well…

  14. integrate Azure File Services in DFS-R

    If you use Azure File Services as an alternative to a file server, it would be very useful to have a replication mechanism like DFS-R.

  17. Need for RBAC permission specialized for "Local Network Gateway".

    At the moment, we do not have a permission specialized for RBAC.

    As its background, we want to limit the amount of the permission which we assign to our user.
    Since there are too many permissions when we add "Microsoft.Network/*", our user needs a permission specialized for Local Network Gateway.

    We can set following permissions (Actions and NotActions) by setting up the NotActions listed below.
    However, in order to avoid unexpected permissions when a new feature is released, could you kindly add specialized Local Network Gateway permission?

    [Japanese]
    RBAC の権限として、ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化したものがありません。

    各ユーザーに対して、必要最小限の権限のみを与えたいと考えていますが、
    "Microsoft.Network/*" を付与する方法では付与される権限が多すぎるため
    ローカル ネットワーク ゲートウェイに特化した権限を必要としています。

    以下のように NotActions…

  18. deletion of integrated account link with logic apps

    Deletion of link of integrated account is operated from Azure Resource Explorer, However, I think that all resource management should be done from the portal. Please make it possible to delete link of integrated account from Azure portal as well.

    <In Japanese>
    統合アカウントのリンクの削除は、Azure Resource Explorerから操作しますが、
    すべてのリソース管理はAzure ポータルで一元管理したい。
    統合アカウントのリンクの削除もAzureポータルからできるようにしてほしい。

  19. Add HA feature to Public IP Standard LB

    Azure Standard LoadBalancers with Public IP in front can't have backend pools with HA loadbalancing rule configured !!
    We deployed NVA firewalls in the backend of Public IP ALB and everytime for inbound connection we have to change the config of ALB for adding new Port !!!

    HA should be an option there to send all Ports to backend so backend can take care of filtering in our model firewalls

    Thanks

  20. API or button to export all Azure AD settings

    For documentation purposes, change management reviews and security audits, it would be highly beneficial that Azure AD could provide a way (either through a button or preferably through Powershell/Graph API) to export all settings from Azure AD. Examples of settings that would be relevant are (but not limited to):

    User settings > “Users can register applications”
    User settings > “Restrict access to Azure AD administration portal”
    User settings > “Allow users to connect work or school account with LinkedIn”
    Enterprise applications – User settings > “Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf”
    Enterprise applications – User…
