  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…

  5. Azure policy notifications for auditing etc

    I would like to see notifications for policies. I tried using Log Analytics capabilities but I’m not satisfied with the result. I think this is a must have.

  6. 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?

  10. Ability to create folders within resource groups

    Ability to create folders within resource groups. This way along with tag, we can maintain the resources in the RG in a much cleaner way.

  11. Ability to add tags to extensions

    We have a policy that Requires a specific tag to be added to all the resources. When we use New-AZVM or Set-AzureRmVMBginfoExtension it doesn't let us add tag to the extensions and VM creation is failing.

  12. 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:
    GUI based options which…

  14. Enable Azure Resource Graph in Azure Government

    Azure Resource Graph has been very useful in Infra Code with Azure Commercial. To enable this service within Azure Government would allow a Continuous Deployment process to occur with Infra code for Fed Agencies.

  18. Make "Access to invoice" Feature available for Azure government

    The "Access to invoice" option is grayed out/unavailable in the Azure Government portal. This means customers are unable to set up the "billing reader role" to allow other users to access the invoices.

    Could this be made available to customers?

  19. Allow SaaS app offer types to be published as Azure Government

    Today, offerings in the Azure Marketplace can only be designated for Azure Government if they're VM-types or Azure App type offerings.

    We have a SaaS app that we'd like to be able to tag as Azure Government as well, since it's for Azure Gov deployments and use.

    I imagine this must come up frequently!
