  1. Azure Policy - Support for RegEx in Match Conditions

    Right now, the "Match" and "notMatch" conditions only support # for digit placeholders and ? for letters. This is okay, but it would be much more useful to support regex expressions. This would needed for define complex naming policies and tagging standards.

  2. Allow Automatic Remediation of deployIfNotExists templates

    What it says on the tin... deployIfNotExists should have an option to automatically remediate the issue by deploying the appropriate resources. (and/or automatically creating and running the remediation task)

  3. Azure Policy based on industry governance/compliance frameworks

    It would be helpful to take some of the control mapping from blueprints against industry frameworks such as PCI-DSS/NIST/etc and allow you to report compliance against those controls for each of the Azure services that exist in your environment.

    Integrating something like cloudsecurityalliance.org control matrix or unifiedcompliance.com would be very helpful.

  4. When Unassigning an Azure Blueprint Provide Option of Removing Blueprint Created Resources

    Since a Blueprint has the ability to create multiple resources in Azure it should also have the ability to clean up those resources. Think of it as the same as deleting a ResourceGroup deletes all resources in the ResourceGroup.
