  1. Ability to support enterprise proxy

    In TP2 a transparent proxy only is supported to communicate with Azure. Unfortunately thats no option because of our network security policy. So it prevents to use Azure Stack as a future hybrid Cloud platform. We need the ability that Azure Stack supports enterprise proxy servers with proxy authentication/ssl interception.

  4. User Portal: Can View Marketplace Items not yet downloaded to Azure Stack

    Currently, users can only view marketplace items that an administrator has downloaded using the admin portal. Request to add the capability for a user to view available items in Azure Marketplace, even if it has not been downloaded to the marketplace in Azure Stack yet. If the item is not available in Azure Stack marketplace, add the ability for a user to request the item, which triggers a notification to an administrator to download from Azure Marketplace.

  5. Add the ability to check the progress of downloads when syndicating items from the marketplace

    It would be great if the progress of downloads could be checked when syndicating items from the marketplace to Azure Stack, through the portal or PowerShell - percentage and download speed would be great.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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

  13. The ability to filter alert by Time-Span and Time-Period in admin portal alert blade

    The ability to filter alert by Time-Span and Time-Period in admin portal alert blade

    We are having a hard time finding the alert. Because no Time-Span and Time-Period filter, and scrollbar response of alert blade is very slow.
    We hope that Time-Span and Time-Period alert filter are implemented in admin portal alert blade.

  14. The Azure Stack update process/experience is not consistent with Windows Update

    There should be an icon on the portal to allow admins to download and update like Windows update.

  15. Expose adminportal dns zone in "DNS Zones"

    When adminportal domain zone is delegated to azure stack there is no way for an operator to add records (for example adding .txt when validating SSL certificates) without placing a ticket to Microsoft support. Why not just expose the dns zone in the "DNS zones" part of adminportal and let administrators configure part of the zone file (you can grey out all the non-configurable names such as portal/adminportal and so on).

  16. 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.

  17. Admin Portal: See current ressources deployed in user subscriptions

    Admin Portal -> User Subscriptions
    it would be great if the azure stack administrator could see a tenants resources that have been created in a subscription. No names but quantities and sizes (e.g. vm type) would be great.

  18. 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)
