      • Application Gateway does not support more the 2048 character within urls

        The Application gateway does not support more than 2048 characters within a url. this is an issue because IDPs (identity Providers) use long urls sending data back and forth for authentication and authorization. We are gong through our FedRAMP Certification. We were being dinged for allowing TLS 1.0 into our webapps. Isn't Azure FedRAMP certified? Microsoft provided us with a work around and to use the Application Gateway to block the TLS 1.0 traffic from making a connection. Ok, that worked until we tried to log into our application and were not able to get into it. if we go…

                  • Add source/destination for Azure Gov datacenter public IP ranges as option for NSG rules.

                    Much like this request in Azure Commercial Feedback: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/217313-networking/suggestions/11716131-add-a-source-tag-for-azure-datacenter-ips-to-nsg-r

                    It would be immensely helpful to be able to select a source/destination tag that is exclusively Azure Datacenter public IP ranges. Currently it is difficult to create a very strict NSG that still allows communication with Azure Datacenter public IP's. Two known options are to have a single, very broad, inbound/outbound rule that allows traffic with the Internet tag over the required port OR use up all or the majority of the 200 rule limit within the NSG to target specific Azure Datacenter IP ranges.

                        We’re working on making Azure Container Services available sometime during the first quarter of 2018. Let us know which features or orchestration engines your particularly interested in.

                        Alternatively, you can deploy Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, etc directly on IaaS/VMs while you wait for this service to become available. Contact us at azgovfeedback@microsoft.com if you have more pressing timelines and would like to discuss this or other workarounds.

                        • Need override exceptions for services created by mistake

                          I had signed up for the 90 day trial and had just started the second month. In trying to determine what type of service I needed to test some features, I inadvertently selected and created a Sql DataWarehouse, not realizing that service would immediately cause me to go over my $500 credit limit. I soon realized that service wasn't at all what I needed, and deleted it, but the effect of this mistake was/is that I'm locked out of my trial account for a month and can't do any further testing because of it. The timing is particularly bad because…

                              • Add Network Watcher to Azure Government

                                I believe this feature is heavily dependent on Azure Diagnostics among other things in order for it to be ported into Azure Government, but I wanted to note it specifically. The Network Watcher would be an invaluable tool to troubleshoot and audit network configurations in Azure Government.

                                      • PowerShell cmdlet for creating a new subscription in Azure Government

                                        Our business separates each customer at the subscription level. This is creating a manual process when deploying customers that could be avoided if there were some way to programmatically create a new subscription.
