  1. ADSK: Post deployment scripts

    create easier scripts to automate the deployment of PaaS services, registering the ASDK environment and even login as user or admin.. now you need to copy paste different lines of code back and forth.. (should be easy ) - Saves going through different lines of code and makes deployment of services easier

  2. Button for Maintenance mode / Automatic Maintenance page / Notification for end users when the portal is under update/upgrade

    Automatically provision or press of a button, deploy availability set of webserver which would state that the portal is under maintenance and point the portal's own FQDN towards that availability set public IP + also close the ports for API/Powershell for Tenant users. After the update either automaticly or manually remove the availability set and point the portal address to correct place.

  3. Documentation on how to create your own resource provider

    Given that Azure Stack is a portal that works with resource providers to offer up things like compute, network, and storage. These are limited in their current functionality to MS platform specific resources. Allowing customers to write their own resource providers would allow them to extend functionality to additional platforms in their environment. For instance someone could write a resource provider to speak directly to their NAS or SAN, or work directly with a CISCO or Brocade fabric. They might even want to deploy resources on VMware or Xen ...

    Obviously moving the workloads between those hypervisors to Azure would…

  4. marketplace

    Marketplace download tool for Disconnected Scenarios

    Azure Marketplace syndication is only available to Azure Stack in a connected mode. In a disconnected scenario, it would also be really great to be able to leverage items from Azure Marketplace. Can there be a tool made available so that Azure Stack validated Marketplace items can be downloaded to Azure Stack (disconnected mode) for consumption? :)

  5. Better Management of Marketplace Downloads

    I would like to see a list of what is available on Marketplace and have this compared to what I have already downloaded, so that I can schedule all these images for download at one time, instead of clicking every image in the Add to Marketplace screen. In addition to that it would be really nice to get automatic updates for the images I have already downloaded.

  6. Constrained VM-sizes in Azure Stack (for VMs with per CPU licensing)

    In Microsoft Azure we have the concept of "Contrained VMs" (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/constrained-vcpu) that helps when licensing VMs with "per CPU" applications (lika MS SQL or such).
    If it where possible to make these available in Azure Stack it would help to move a traditional VM to a cloudmodel (but still license the SQL installation with "on-prem" licenses (EA, SPLA or otherwise).

    D-sizes already exist in Azure Stack so atleast the following sizes should "simple" to implement. :)
    StandardDS11-1v2
    StandardDS12-2v2
    StandardDS12-1v2
    StandardDS13-4v2
    StandardDS13-2v2
    StandardDS14-8v2
    StandardDS14-4v2

    Thanks

  7. Add the ability to deliver messages\announcements to end users (similar to Azure portal).

    So Azure ARM Portal sometimes gives you some piece of important information, like that is now GA or this is now Live, etc. Give us the ability to alert\inform end users about stuff

  9. Display Tenant vCPU Usage vs. Total Cores in Admin Portal

    As one of the most Important Chargeback Criteria is vCPU, we need a way to at least Monitor Consumption of vCPU and put this in Ratio with pCores.
    The total vCPU Consumption needs to be displayed vwitha Gauche on the Admin Dashboard in Capacity

  10. When creating subscriptions select the Directory Tenant first, then have a drop down or search to only allow users from that Directory

    When creating subscriptions select the Directory Tenant first, then have a drop down or search to only allow users from that Directory. This will help prevent any spelling mistakes on the User ID that would require the subscription to be recreated.

  11. Access to all Portal / ARM interfaces only over HTTP/HTTPS

    Reduce access / interfacing with ARM / Portal from a tenant perspective to only over HTTP / HTTPS.

    This will allow for easier access to Azure Stack instances hosted outside of a tenant's corporate network by a user located within the corporate network (which typically restricts external access to HTTP/HTTPS ports for untrusted external internet addresses= via proxy)

  12. ASDK: Disable Windows Update in group policy

    disable windows update in the member server group policy in ASDK (small update, but removes the "Updates are ready to be installed" on the host.. and avoids people from updating and ending in unsupported config)
