  1. Update New-AzContainerGroup to allow multiple containers in ACI

    In AZ CLI you can specify a yaml file containing multiple images when deploying an Azure Container Instance.

    This functionality should be made available using Azure Powershell, as it would be useful for writing lightweight deployment scripts in Azure Functions or even Automation. Currently New-AzContainerGroup can only be used to create single-container ACI resources.

  2. Allow ACI instances to use a static IP address when using a private VNet

    When configuring ACI instances that will exist in a private VNet, allow us to specify the IP address to use so we can configure DNS names externally to resolve to these servers.

  3. Support Availability Zones for Azure Container Instance

    The idea is that if we want to use Azure Container Instance (ACI) in our solution which support HA redundancy, currently it's not possible because there's no availability zone support. Spawning two container instances in same region could result in single point of failure if the region is down. Spawning in two different regions may work but it's definitely a concern on the pricing.

  4. Prompt Azure AD credentials while accessing container(set to private access level) using shared key.

    When the access level of the container is set to "anonymous", sharing a URL of the file would allow users to download file. But, when the
    access level is set to "private", an authorized request specifying date header is required. This requires extra steps and SAS keys expires.

    Azure storage does not currently support prompting Azure AD credentials while attempting to access URL to download. Upon successful entry of credentials, users should be able to access the file. This feature allows using the same URL(as anonymous) to download the file and security is ensured using Azure AD authentication.

  5. Support Managed Disks

    The title describes feature.
    Currently ACI is not suitable for hosting databases, but if you give us ability to mount Managed Disks it would allow us to hust hunderds of databases.
    I saw this post https://medium.com/@seanmckenna_47871/aci-pm-here-d59cde58890a and it says "We intend to eventually support other volume types, such as Azure Managed Disks.". Do you still have plans to support Managed Disks?

  6. liveness / readiness probes

    Support for liveness and readiness probes when running ACI within a V-net. This works when the ACIis run without using v-net

  7. Implement ACI in regions Switzerland North and Switzerland West

    We are moving medical data around in Switzerland, the data constitutes PII sensitive data, and in accordance with our regulators, the data must reside in jurisdiction Switzerland. It is a legal requirement for us. We would like to use the SFTP on Azure service which is based on ACI.

  8. Configure Volumes in Web UI

    Mounting persistent volumes is only possible for ACI in Cli, for multiple volumes only with resource manager templates.
    As a lot of use cases need to have persistent storage it would be great to add them in web ui as well.

  9. Preserve END Client IP address to Azure Container Instances

    I've been using Azure Container Instances to develop different short term web projects. I love the idea of being able to script the creation of a Container with mounted storage and to have all the control over the NGINX config in a persistent storage mount. I've noticed that you cannot get the IP address of the requesting system in this configuration. The only thing that shows up in the logs is a local IP of what I assume to be the container parent. It would be great if there was some forwarding header that would pass down the IP address…

  10. Azure Container Registry failure pushing Windows containers

    Building a .NET Core container based on .NET Core base image, build with Docker on Windows as a Windows container. The push fails with an 'End of File' during push, however Docker on Windows to build for Linux has no issues.

  11. ACI deploys container groups (Pods) showing Kubernetes services links on environment variables

    Azure Container Instances is showing Kubernetes services information on environment variables as default behavior. This is polluting the environmental variable space when "az container exec" command is run. Need the ability to disable ACI pods from populating environment variable space with Kubernetes services information.

  12. ACI instances report success when "Stopping" terminated containers

    A "Terminated" container with a "Restart" policy will accept the "Stop" command, but the container group's status remain as "Succeeded" instead of "Stopped". This causes the group to not take advantage of restart optimizations like image caching and it is not reliable to determine if the group needs to be restarted or startup. Image caching should help with custom images/layers on top of instances.

  13. Enable Containers in VNETs to Have a Public IP

    Enable Containers in VNETs to Have a Public IP

    It would be useful for containers to have a public IP and also be present in a VNET, for the use case of any type of proxy device - be it web proxy or VPN, IPS.

    At present you can be entirely in VNET with no Public IP or just a container with a PIP and no access to VNET

  15. Support dependencies in yaml definition (depends_on)

    Add support for specifying dependencies in the yaml file (like "depends_on" in docker compose). That way a container cannot be started until all the dependencies has been started and all dependencies terminate when the main container finishes.

  16. Pulling images in parallel

    If you have multiple containers in a single ACI, the ACI engine pulls images one AFTER the other instead of in parallel. The fact that images are not cached is already problematic (although understandable) but pulling in parallel would definitely help to speed up things.

  17. Immagine Docker che espone un servizio HTTPS

    I created an App Service from a Docker Hub image. This image contains a service in HTTPS. When you try to call the service through your browser, you get the HTTP 400 Bad Request error (see attachment). This is because the middle component of Azure calls the newly installed service in HTTP instead of HTTPS. How can I fix this?.

  18. support multiple protocols with same port for ACI

    Currently, we cannot expose same port for multiple protocols, such as expose port 8838 with TCP and UDP protocols together.
    Could you add this feature asap?

  19. Support blob storage as volume

    As far as I can tell, blob storage is not supported and blobfuse is not an option for azure container instances. Would be great to get support for it.

    I am trying a setup where aci is created by function/blob triggers but the files for processing have to reside on file storage (as in, we need a long term copy in blob and temporary copy in file storage ) - not really convenient.

    I've seen this discussed here previously as well:

  20. Give us outgoing IPs or Allow Route Tables

    We need to know the outbound IPs for containers running in ACIs.

    Other cloud providers allow you to do this through a managed NAT.

    We've even tried using out own vNet in an attempt force tunnel the request through our on-premise network. However, we cannot do this as you cannot use Route Tables and Service Endpoint delegation together.

    This is really disappointing especially since AWS and Google Cloud both allow static IPS and managed NATs.
