  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. Disable Azure Active Directory Users After A Set Time Period Of Inactivity

    Request feature that will automatically disable Azure Active Directory cloud only user accounts after a set time period of account inactivity. Our security policy requires that inactive accounts over 30 days are disabled and be deleted if no longer necessary.

  14. Portal generated MAG Deployment Template uses incorrect PowerShell command for login

    By going to any Resource Group, Automation Script then selecting PowerShell. When downloading the deployment template or viewing the powershell template for deployments the command used is:
    Login-AzureRMAccount
    without the Environment name.

    The command should be
    Login-AzureRmAccount -EnvironmentName AzureUSGovernment

    The script file is also wrong when you download the zip file.

  15. 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!

  17. incremental backups

    I understand that there is a lag between certain features in the government fork; however, we need this feature to meet departmental behaviors which need to continue to facilitate a smooth transition from on-premises to Azure.

    We are now in Azure and must be able to perform the status quo until rearchitecture to Iaas/PaaS over just IaaS.

  18. API Management Consumption plan (like in Commercial)

    In today's MS Connect, Microsoft announced availability of API Management Consumption plan (In preview) in Microsoft Azure Commercial subscriptions. Why not extend the same offer to Govt, Cloud? This is a great solution for several State and Local customers.
