  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  8. 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).

  9. 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.

  11. 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…

  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. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  17. Ability to add tags to extensions

    We have a policy that Requires a specific tag to be added to all the resources. When we use New-AZVM or Set-AzureRmVMBginfoExtension it doesn't let us add tag to the extensions and VM creation is failing.

  18. Enable Azure Resource Graph in Azure Government

    Azure Resource Graph has been very useful in Infra Code with Azure Commercial. To enable this service within Azure Government would allow a Continuous Deployment process to occur with Infra code for Fed Agencies.
