  2. Managed Instance of SSRS would be great

    A Managed Instance of SSRS to report from a SQL Managed Instance would be ideal. The requirement of having a local (or Azure VM) SSRS server to report against a SQL Managed Instance kind of defeats the purpose of "managed" for those of us who need to generate reports. Power BI does not cut it for the types of reports SSRS can generate.

  3. Support for MSDTC

    Many applications need MSDTC including MS apps. Would really like to see this supported in MI.

    Thanks for bringing this up. We currently don’t have plans for MSDTC support yet.
    Can you please let us know more about your scenario and how much effort it would take to re-write your application, how big of a blocker it is?

    Implementing MSDTC support in cloud environment is not a trivial ask. We need to make sure that there is a demand for this and it has higher priority than other features.

  4. Add tagging to database on Azure SQL Managed Instance

    It would be very convenient if it were possible to add tags to the databases that are hosted on Azure SQL Managed Instances. On the Instance level it is possible to add tags, not on the individual Databases.

    Please add this possibility as it will help us with internal invoicing.

  5. Support Merge Replication in Managed Instance

    There are customers and ISV's who have built transactional solutions around Merge Replication and cannot easily rewrite them. ADF does not provide a workaround. This is preventing them from moving to Azure PaaS solution.

  6. Azure Managed Instance Zone Redundancy

    The ability to make Azure Managed Instances be zone redundant to match the HA capabilities of SQL Database seems logical.

  7. Change default Backup retention on entire Instance

    Azure SQL Managed Instance has the capability to change the backup retention policy from 7 up to 35 days, but there's no way to change this setting in an instance level.

    Since we're migrating existing On-premises DBs to MI and the retention must be at least 30 days, we have to manually change this setting on every DB migrated. There are around 6000 DBs planned to move to Azure SQL MI but with that limitation is gonna be really hard to cope and monitor this setting.

    It would be really nice if we could just set the default retention on…

  8. Monitor the Secondary replica

    Business critical Managed instance has additional secondary replica which can be used to offload read workload. However currently there is no mechanism to effectively monitor the secondary workload.

    dmdbresource_stats doesn't contain metadata for more than an hour. Please introduce effective mechanism to monitor the secondary replica of Managed Instance

  9. windows authentication in azure sql db managed instance

    I have read in many forums that currently Azure SQL Database managed instance doesn't support "Windows Authentication". Is there any workaround for this? or ETA for MI to support Windows auth

  11. Creation time for Azure SQL Managed Instances

    The first deployment in a resource group takes between 6-12 hours. (This raises concerns around disaster recovery plans in regards to any scenario that we need to restore a backup in a new resource group. 12 hours + Restore time is not feasible).

    Is the creation time going to be improved in the near future? This is causing is great concern for moving to MI.
