  3. Add cloud shell w/ Azure CLI/PS support in Azure Gov Portal

    Same as commercial: Shell access from virtually anywhere
    Connect with Azure using an authenticated, browser-based shell experience that’s hosted in the cloud and accessible from virtually anywhere. Azure Cloud Shell is assigned per unique user account and is automatically authenticated with each session. Combined with Azure portal’s familiar GUI experience, Cloud Shell adds the power and flexibility of using an authenticated shell experience.

    Cloud Shell is being deployed to Azure Government with plans for availability in the CY19Q2 time frame.

    Initially, Cloud Shell in Azure Government will only support bash with support for PowerShell coming shortly after.

    Visual Studio Team Services can integrate/connect with Azure Government today. For more information on this see:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/azure-government/documentation-government-get-started-connect-with-vsts

    This item will remain open for a FedRAMP version of VSTS instance which is still TBD. Please also cast you vote on the Visual Studio Team Services feedback forum:
    https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/330519-visual-studio-team-services/suggestions/12571488-add-visual-studio-team-services-to-azure-governmen

    Also, in the short term our recommendation is to self-host Team Foundation Server (our on-premises product) in Azure. Several quickstart templates are available to help self-hosting Team Foundation Server in Azure, including in government clouds. See https://azure.microsoft.com/resources/templates/?term=tfs, and https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/mihansen/2017/11/15/private-tfs-deployment-in-azure/. We are working on making this approach easier in the next release of TFS.

  9. Azure Search in Azure Government

    Azure Search delegates server and infrastructure management to Microsoft, leaving me with a ready-to-use service that I can populate with my data and then use to add search to your web or mobile application.

  10. Premium Storage in 'US Gov Iowa'

    None of the S versions of VM SKUs are available in 'US Gov Iowa'

    With Premium Storage, I can add up to 32 TB of persistent storage per virtual machine, with more than 50,000 IOPS per virtual machine and extremely low latencies for read operations.

  11. Add SendGrid Email Delivery Service

    The SendGrid Email Delivery Service is available in public Azure, but not Azure Government. Please make this useful service available also in Azure Government.

  12. API or 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.

  17. Hide VPN Gateway RADIUS Secret key

    It is unacceptable that when I navigate to the P2S Radius configuration the value of the secret key is shown in clear text by default. This must be hidden by default like all other parts of the portal.

  20. Add Service Map Solution to Azure Government OMS

    Add the Service Map solution to MAG OMS. The ability to map and show details of the entire IaaS/PaaS environment can assist with both ATO and required documentation making the transition to Azure Government much smoother. This also ties into incident management and remediation as well as Security Center.
