  1. Azure Policy Template to audit/enforce Azure Backups on VMs

    Would love to get a pre-made Azure policy template to audit/enforce Azure Backups to ensure servers are not missed.

  2. 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.

    Hi,

    Thanks for you feedback! At Ignite 2019, we were happy to announce our Regulatory Compliance initiatives. We are mapping our policies directly to compliance frameworks. We have started with the NIST framework and will continue with others as time progress. Once again, thanks for your input!

  3. Show Azure Policy Definition parameters on a separate tab

    In a lot of situations you are only interested in viewing initiative definitions and definition parameters, not editing them.
    Showing definition parameters on a separate tab would save a lot of time.

  4. azure policy check string length

    It would be great if there will be in future a possibility to check the length of the resource Name at the deployment.

    So it would be much easier to Control the naming convention for a resource.

  5. Easily navigate between Policy Definitions and Assignments

    In the portal, I cannot easily navigate between policy definitions and assignments. Examples:

    -From a policy definition, show me all assignments of this definition
    -From a policy assignment, show me the definition
