  6. Support FIPs compliant algorithms for Azure AD Connect Health Agent

    Azure AD Connect Health Agent does not currently support FIPS mode. As a result, we are unable to run the agent on our FEDRamp system.

    "FIPS is not supported by Azure AD Connect Health agents."

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/connect-health/active-directory-aadconnect-health-agent-install

    AD Connect does support FIPS by modifying the .NET config so I would expect that is possible with the Health agent as well.

  9. 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?

  10. Function App Consumption Plan in Azure Government

    The point of the Azure Function App is to be a "serverless, consumption based service". We use the consumption service plan on the normal Azure cloud. How about for the Government cloud?

  12. Application Gateway analytics in Government Cloud

    The ability to analyze Application Gateway logs as described at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/log-analytics/log-analytics-azure-networking-analytics is not available in Azure Government. Downloading logs from blob storage and examining them is too much effort. Please make this feature available.

  20. 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.
