  2. Static Website Hosting for Azure Gov Storage

    As was announced for all public cloud regions (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/azure-storage-static-web-hosting-public-preview/), It would be also useful to have this feature in all Azure Gov regions

  4. 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?

  5. Add Service Map Solution to Azure Government OMS

    Add the Service Map solution to MAG OMS. The ability to map and show details of the entire IaaS/PaaS environment can assist with both ATO and required documentation making the transition to Azure Government much smoother. This also ties into incident management and remediation as well as Security Center.

    Azure CDN is currently revaluating their plans for Azure Government

    For customers that have both public Azure and Azure Government, given that CDNs don’t host restricted data, you can use Azure CDN from public Azure in the interim.

  7. 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…

  12. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
