  1. Provide Government MFA support for Azure File Shares, and allow integration with Azure Active Directory.

    Response from a recent Microsoft ticket "In short, MFA will not be possible for access to the Azure Files Shares, at least in the foreseeable future. Additionally, the Azure File Shares are not designed to integrate with Azure Active Directory. " when trying to monitor/provide MFA support for accessing a file share on the Azure Government platform.

  4. Redirect Azure Government customers when accessing Portal.Azure.COM to Portal.Azure.US and vice versa.

    Redirect Azure Government customers when accessing Portal.Azure.COM to Portal.Azure.US and vice versa. Or at least throw up some flags to block access to that portal.

  6. Wordpress Web App in Azure Gov

    Working with a MAG customer who wants to migrate several WordPress sites to Azure. They would like to leverage PaaS whenever possible and would prefer to deploy the Word Press Web Apps offering rather than building their own solution on IaaS VMs or using VM images published by vendors in the MarketPlace, most of which are not an option due to the OS distro included. When will the PaaS WordPress Web App offering might be available in MAG?

    The Wordpress template has a dependency in Azure database for MySQL and App Service on Linux, neither of which are available in Azure Government yet.
    For development and testing purposes, you can use this template which uses MySQL In-App and App Service on Windows:
    https://github.com/Azure/azure-quickstart-templates/tree/master/wordpress-app-service-mysql-inapp

    Alternatively, for production purposes, you can still use App Service on Windows and an IaaS-based MySQL backend instead.

  7. Add alerts to Azure backup vaults in L4 regions (USVirgina)

    We need to receive alerts when backup jobs have completed in ASR but at this time, alerting and notification is not available in L4 gov regions such as US Virginia.

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Please allow direct EA enrollment for US Azure Government

    Currently Azure Government EAs are only available through a Licensing Solutions Provider (LSP): https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/offers/azure-government/

    We would like to have the option to switch our Azure EA Gov account so that we are a direct Microsoft customer. We would prefer to deal with Microsoft directly for everything.

  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?

  14. 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…

  16. 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!

  19. Add visibility of storage caps and utilization to dashboards and CLI

    Add visibility of storage caps and utilization to dashboards and CLI. With lots of storage accounts throughout the company, some will be requested to be higher than the base 500 TB limit. In order to manage them as they get larger, it would be great to have a dashboard with utilization as well as limits. Pulling this data from the CLI would also be useful to get it back into monitoring systems that can alert us when we're nearing the current cap.
