Application Insights can help me gain actionable insights through application performance management and instant analytics.64 votes
Application Insights is being deployed in Azure Government and expected to be available during the October / November 2018 time frame.
Let us of specific features or scenarios that you’re particularly interested.
Azure AD B2B is planned for CY18Q3.
This initial iteration of B2B is scoped to support only adding guests from other Azure Government tenants and not Azure commercial.
Give us as much details as possible about your scenario anyway so that we can make sure we’re addressing your needs!
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.49 votes
Cloud Shell is planned to arrive to Azure Government sometime in Q4 of CY18 (not CY19, apologies for the typo there).
Initially, Cloud Shell in Azure Government will only support bash with support for PowerShell coming shortly after.
Azure Security Center is available in preview in Azure Government.
See this blog post for more details:
Also check out the documentation for limitations:
Visual Studio Team Services can integrate/connect with Azure Government today. For more information on this see:
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:
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.
With the migration to off-premise cloud, the ability to synchronize large datasets from traditional file servers to the Azure File and Azure IaaS File servers would be greatly beneficial. Especially when you are looking at between 20 and 60 TB of data to sync.28 votes
Azure File Sync is being deployed in Azure Government.
It’s planned availability is for the October / November time-frame.
Let us know which regions are top priority for you.
The new managed-Kubernetes Azure Container Service (AKS) is planned to preview in Azure Government sometime in CY18Q3.
In the interim, you can deploy Kubernetes, Mesosphere, Docker Swarm, etc directly via the open sourced acs-engine (https://github.com/Azure/acs-engine). Check out this tutorial for more info: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-government/documentation-government-k8

Azure Load Balancer Standard is being deployed to Azure Government.
We expect for it to be available in the October/November time frame.
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.17 votes
We’re working on getting a date for Azure Search in Azure Government.
Currently available Linux Diagnostic extension on Azure government is only 2.x, latest one being 2.3.9021 as per
However there has been a new version of Linux diagnostic released with lot of improvements and bug fixes :
The 2.x version is also retiring soon "Any old versions (2.x) are deprecated and may be unpublished on or after July 31, 2018."

Great feedback, we’re looking into this.
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.15 votes
Add full Citrix suite to Azure Govt. This request goes in line with the request for Marketplace parity .14 votes
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.13 votes
We’re investigating when programmatic creation Azure enterprise subscriptions using ARM APIs will be available in Azure Government (see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/programmatically-create-enterprise-subscriptions-preview/).
Please add a comment indicating if that’ll meet your needs or what else do you need.
Have many states actively asking to start projects in Data Lake. This would be a major advantage in the Gov space.12 votes
Data Lake Analytics and Data Lake Store are planned to be available in Azure Government for sometime in September / October 2018.
Please enable VM Auto shutdown in Azure Government:
We’re looking into getting this enabled.
Please enable MSI for App Services and Azure Functions.
Note this is different from MSI for VMs & VMSS, for that see:
MSI for App Services & Functions is available in Azure Government via the REST API, CLI and Powershell. Portal support is coming soon.
Azure Database for MySQL and PostgreSQL is being deployed in Azure Government and is expected to be available sometime in early CY18Q3.
Allow for Azure Government VMs & VM Scale Sets to be managed via the new Azure AD Managed Service Identity (MSI) feature.
Note this is different from MSI for App Services & Functions, for that see:
Managed Service Identity “system assigned” identities are now supported in Azure Government via CLI/PowerShell/ARM.
Support through the portal will be enabled later.
Note that only “system assigned” identities are supported at this point.
Support for “User assigned” identities is TBD.
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.8 votes
Service Tags are available in Azure Government.
As of April 17, you’ll see: Internet, Virtual Network, Azure Load Balancer, Azure Traffic Manager, Storage and SQL. The outstanding feature is support for region specific Service Tags for Storage and SQL (e.g Storage.USGovVirginia, Sql.USGovVirginia)
