  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  5. Azure Govt Import Export Pricing Clarity

    The Azure Pricing web page for Govt Import Export is misleading at best and needs to be clarified. This page indicates the cost to import a data disk in "N/A" and strongly implies it's free especially when you select any Commercial Data Center where the price is $80 per disk drive. Govt pricing is different than Commercial with a higher free Azure Credits ($500) and Govt customers will believe the disk drive upload charge is at no cost (free).

  6. 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.

  8. Fix Visual Studio's Web App publishing to not require the Azure Environment Selector

    As of Visual Studio version 15.7.1, despite assurances to the contrary, the ability to use Gov credentials in Visual Studio to provision Web Apps/App Services is broken and will not work without the Azure Environment Selector plugin, except in very rare cases. This is based on real-world observation in 3 classes across a 3 week timespan. Users enter their credentials and are presented with "no subscription", with the workaround to be to delete the account in VS, add the plugin, restart VS, select Gov, restart VS, and then move forward.

    This works in other applications (see Azure Storage Explorer), where…

  9. Include support plan purchase links at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/plans/government/

    https://azure.microsoft.com/support/plans/government/ is missing the direct links to purchase a support plan for Azure Government customers

    The support submission blade guides customers who do not yet have technical support here but leaves them hanging because there is no way to purchase from that page.

  10. Enable Log Analytics search REST API for government use

    The log analytics search REST API is available for marketplace use but not government sites. We followed the documentation here thinking our logs could be searched using api.loganalytics.io: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/log-analytics/log-analytics-log-search-api. Expanding the API log search capability to government sites with an api.loganalytics.us option would be a useful feature for our company and potentially others. At the very least, the documentation should mention that government sites are not supported.

  11. Need override exceptions for services created by mistake

    I had signed up for the 90 day trial and had just started the second month. In trying to determine what type of service I needed to test some features, I inadvertently selected and created a Sql DataWarehouse, not realizing that service would immediately cause me to go over my $500 credit limit. I soon realized that service wasn't at all what I needed, and deleted it, but the effect of this mistake was/is that I'm locked out of my trial account for a month and can't do any further testing because of it. The timing is particularly bad because…

  12. Enable serial console for vm's in azure government portal

    Hi Team,

       It would be super helpful if we can have serial console enabled for vm's hosted in azure government portal. Without serial console, it would be really bring us issues when vm is in irrecoverable state.

  14. Enabled static website support in Azure Storage Accounts

    This is available in Azure commercial but isn't available in Azure gov cloud. This will be a useful feature and a cost effective way to host a static website.

  16. Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for Azure

    This would help with core idea of least amount privilege. Enhancing security:
    Access management for cloud resources is a critical function for any organization that is using the cloud. Role-based access control (RBAC) helps you manage who has access to Azure resources, what they can do with those resources, and what areas they have access to.

  18. Add GitHub as a deployment source for App Service

    The Deployment Center in App Service does not let us use GitHub for Continuous Deployment (CI / CD). This is a feature in Azure Commercial, it would be great to have this in Azure Government too.
