  1. Integrate Azure Blueprints with Azure Devops

    It would be really helpful to have integration with Azure Devops. Copy pasting arm templates as artifacts is painful. Would like to be able to store my templates in Azure Devops and call them as artifacts from Azure Blueprints

  2. Azure Blueprint Powershell management

    Managing Azure Blueprints via PowerShell or Azure Cli and not via Rest API. Makes it easier to use it with azure Automation.

  3. Support adding a tag to resource groups created by a blueprint

    Today blueprints don't support any way of adding a tag to a created resource group in the UI or the API.

  4. Support using Azure Blueprints without requiring Managment Groups

    For customers like us not using Management Groups it is hard to try/use Azure Blueprints.

  6. Create a strongType for an AAD Principal ID

    When creating role assignments via an Azure Blueprint, it would be extremely helpful to have a strongType that would allow the selection of one or more AAD Principal IDs. This would provide a much better user experience when deploying a Role Assignment.

    This can be done today. We need to publish docs for this, but we support three strong types today:

    • principalId
    • location
    • resourceType

    It will go inside of the metadata property of your parameter declaration like this:

    “principalIds”: { “type”: “string”, “metadata”: { “displayName”: “Principal IDs”, “strongType”: “PrincipalId” } },
  7. Open Source the sample Blueprints

    Is the blueprint available on GitHub at all?

    I have taken the blueprint as a foundation for my "data centre in a box" template but, I have no way of seeing if there have been any changes to the MS provided one and if there are, what changes were made.

    Cheers

  8. JSON object support in parameters to arm templates

    I'm using json objects to pass things like subnet configurations, tags and nsg rules into a vnet template. When I add a artificat the GUI only supports string/integers as parameters. My suggestion is to make it possible to upload a complex parameter file in the same way as the template is added. That way I won't need to "dumb down" my parameter files and hard code things in my templates. I would then also have the option to use string parameters for simple templates and object for more complex ones when I add them to blueprints.
