  4. Better information regarding current features

    We need a better source of information regarding the difference in Commercial cloud and Government cloud capabilities.

    I feel like we are often just in the dark about when some features are coming vs. not, and have no idea if things are fully implemented or not.

    Example: In Government cloud, Teams is not able to add any apps. Is this coming? When?

    Another example: Brown bag style events are rolling out worldwide allowing us to create events on a team calendar without inviting the entire team; when would we get it?

    Another example: Azure Sentinel is in commercial, no timeline…

  6. SQL Service Provider for Hybrid Benefit in Azure Government

    Burn rate in the several thousands per month for every month unavailable and several man hours to move from migrated in SQL to BYOL images in Azure Government affects all departments and agencies with existing Agreements for Licensing when performing lift and shift migrations.

    This is a platform limitation only in MAG and exists as a standard option in MAC.

    What we the customer need urgently: any simple workaround to correct the LicenseType or SKU without disruption to systems as with Windows OS HUB via PowerShell and AZ CLI or similar.

    What we can wait on:

  9. Remove the 500 seat requirement for AD premium

    We only use AAD for admins managing IAAS resources in Azure. We need AAD premium to meet security and compliance requirements but we don't have anywhere near 500 admins. Without AAD premium it is not possible to meet certain security requirements and Microsoft has put a huge barrier to access it for smaller organizations.

  13. Add option 'Export to CSV' on the VM list page.

    In the past, it was possible to copy/paste the VM list from the web page to Excel. It no longer works, so as a workaround, can you add the 'Export to CSV' button?
