  1. Application Gateway WAF - Monitor Mode to be improved

    In WAF, the only modes are Prevention and Monitor. All Live rganisation will deploy on Prevention mode. In reality we need to disable some rules on the WAF for applications to work. However once a rule is disabled, there is no way to understand how many times that rule is violated. Hence it would b good if in Prevention mode, while rules are allowed to be disabled, these disabled rules will still continue to work on MONITOR mode so we can understand how these disabled rules are being affected

    • Application Gateway WAF to be Customised at URL Level

      It would be ideal if can customise The Application Gateway WAF rules at URL Level. Hence Public facing web pages can more rules applied and internal private pages can be configured with Lesser rules

      • B1S Windows Server is not a viable VM

        B1S is just too small of a VM to be viable. Provisioning it in Central US takes 27 minutes, and then when it finally starts everything is so unbearably slow that you can't do anything. Takes minutes for Task Manager to start and paint itself. I don't know why it's being offered when it's so underpowered that it is really impossible to use.

          • Azure Storage Explorer upload rate limiter

            This idea came after I accidentally used up 92% of the upload bandwidth on my offices network (oops) while uploading a large VHD. After IT contacted me, they had me run a poweshell command to set a QoS for the storage explorer that restricted the upload speed for the program. It would be nice if there was an option in the application to set upload and download limits to prevent situations like this.

            • free azure account

              I would like to see a free tier of Azure available so that companies can sign up and use to for the free Upgrade Readiness OMS software you provide. It is confusing to me that the Upgrade Readiness part is free, but it requires you to have an Azure account.

              • increase core quote defaults for Dev Test subscriptions

                Increase default core quotas to 50 or 100 cores.
                Dev Test Subscription core quotas are extremely low 10 per core type.
                Dev Test Subscriptions are the central colaborative point for development teams, we have more than 20 developers in our team and run out of default cores extremely quickly.

                      Currently only SSMS 16.x can connect to SQL Server 2016 Integration Services. Using SSMS 17.x will result in an error.

                      • Providing ability to delete entries

                        I totally understand that entries can't be deleted from the DB, however on special request this should be done or Azure should provide user the ability to delete from there end.

                        In this scenario a department was deleted by mistake. Now neither we are able to re-activate it or create a new with same name.

                        • Expose metrics in Prometheus format

                          Prometheus (https://prometheus.io/) metrics format is gaining popularity as a standard format of exposing metrics.
                          It would be nice if we could query the azure api for a resource and retrieve the metrics for that resource in the Prometheus format so that Azure metrics can be more easily combined with metrics from other sources.

                              Right now monitoring for Azure VM Scale Sets is limited to aggregate values. It would be great to be able to see instance level metrics like CPU, RAM, etc.
                              The current workaround is to use a third party tool like new relic for this, but it would be good to have as a native feature

                                • Need a function to URL path rewriting in Application Gateway

                                  Currently, I know Azure Application Gateway has a function for redirection of URL path based.

                                  Now, I need a function for rewriting URL path during redirecting a request to backend server.

                                  For example, When Application Gateway received a HTTP request to http://www.contoso.com/test/*, it redirects the request as /images/* to backend server.

                                  In other words, I want to set a URL path for backend server in PathRuleConfig in Application Gateway.

                                        • portal idle session timeout

                                          currently we could set portal idle session timeout for single service admin, but we couldn't configure centralized setting to control idle timeout for all the service admins. Could we have this feature?
