  1. Allow more rich symbols while using Match in Policy definition

    I am using Management groups and wanted to roll out multiple naming policy.
    I have various clients hence thought of a consistent manner to support and organize Resource groups/Resources in a consistent way. i.e <Cleint>-<Prod/Dev>-RGP-<Name>.
    So it would sort out like
    CL1-PROD-RGP-MyFirstRG
    CL1-PROD-RGP-AnotherOne
    CL2-DEV-RGP-NNNN
    CL3-PROD-RGP-aaa

    but unfortunately found that match could not support a symbol which would represent letter or number in same symbol. Details can be seen in the closed feedback thread on the following page.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-policy/scripts/allow-multiple-name-patterns

    It would really help enforce a consistent naming convention.
    Not sure how fast help can arrive from MS?

  2. Integrate Azure Policy with Azure DevOps

    Recently, I started working with Azure Policies. In that, am able to create Azure Policy through portal successfully and now am trying to do same with the help of Azure DevOps. According to documentation there is a chance to integrate Azure Policy with Azure DevOps, but there is no more information regarding to that.

  3. Azure Policy - Export compliance report to CSV

    Add an export to CSV button to the policy compliance screen. The Policy screens can be quite cluttered and clunky. But I can get compliance data from multiple assignments at once. I would like to be able to then export that compliance data so that I can slice and dice the data, augment the data and steward compliance (say in a new policy roll-out) from Excel.

  4. Generate Alert when there is an audit on deployment.

    I've got a customer who wants to be informed via mail when a VM or a service is deployed outside the EU due to GDPR requirements.

    He wants to deploy those compontents in a separate resource group, where there is the allowed locations policy is attached but with the audit action instead of the deny action
