Just wanted to post another update that we are continuing to work on this, and will have more details in the near future.
/Stuart and Vince
We definitely recognize the popularity of this feature, and we discuss it constantly during the planning phases. However there are certain technical limitations in the system that add a large amount of development cost. Because of the cost and the fact that there is a workaround available, other features get prioritized over this one.
That being said, please keep voting for it. The popularity of the feature does help bring it up and makes us reconsider every time.
Apologies for the delay.
We’re doing some research both on the specifics of this ask as well as what it would take to support this.
Is the ask here to do the same thing that regular Azure AD does (see: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2014/12/18/azure-active-directory-now-with-group-claims-and-application-roles/) or is are there different requirements around this for Azure AD B2C?
I’ve gotten a few questions about this item recently, so I just wanted to give a more detailed status. We still have this on the backlog; it hasn’t been forgotten. But we don’t have a clear timeline for when we would get to it right now. The “unplanned” status just means that it can’t be tied to a timeline, but we do think this is a valid request that we would like to have in the product.
Having this same capability from a programmatic standpoint would also be very helpful. For example, if every one of my business widgets is represented by a stateful actor, how do I get a count of how many widgets I have? How do I do a "select" over my stateful actors?
Work on this feature has started. Will update here when this becomes generally available.
Thank you for your suggestion and votes.
We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.
We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.
Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

Even if we could migrate the data to azure tables or csv files. Anything would be better than nothing.
If a series of still images isn't workable then what about supporting motion jpeg as an input format?

This is something that we are evaluating now for a future Azure update.
For me the main issue is the speed at which I can take a sleeping or stopped VM and have it up and running and taking requests. If sleep lets me cut that time down to just a few seconds then it would be extremely valuable.
We understand this is a top customer ask and as such it is currently on our backlog to be prioritized. We will update when the status changes.
Thanks for the idea, Bran. We will take a look at this but the nested virtualization is tricky.
For applications that require cross document join, please consider the Gremlin API: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cosmos-db/create-graph-dotnet, which has primitives for joins, traversals, and other graph operations.
We are evaluating expanding the SQL grammar to support graph functionality, which will provide the ability to perform cross-document JOINs. Please upvote this item to help us prioritize this work.
This is currently not on our roadmap. However, we will continue to review this item in the future as we prioritize future releases.
Thank you for your suggestion and for the comments.
After writing a few server-side scripts I agree that a .Net flavor would be much easier for me.
