Still no news to share, just to add that we are investigating options on modifications for the App Service multi-tenant offering with enhanced capabilities.
We have shipped a public preview of integration with AAD DS: https://azure.microsoft.com/blog/azure-active-directory-integration-for-smb-access-now-in-public-preview/
What we have in preview is a first step along a much larger roadmap for integration with AAD/AD for authentication and authorization. As the blog post says, this initial preview is really about Windows cloud VM access to the Azure file share with an AAD identity. Future refreshes to this feature will add non-Windows (Linux, macOS, etc) support, and the ability to mount the Azure file shares on-premises with your AAD identity. You can learn more about this in our Ignite session as well (at around 22:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMzh2M66E9o
We’ll keep you updated on our progress. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to continue posting feedback on this feature below.

IPv6 in Azure VNET is currently previewing globally- in ALL Azure Public cloud regions.
Announcement (Service Update): https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/public-preview-microsoft-adds-full-ipv6-support-for-azure-vnets/
Links to Documentation & Samples
Full documentation including sample scripts is available here: https://aka.ms/IPv6ForAzureVNETdoc
A sample JSON template is posted in the quickstart repository: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/templates/ipv6-in-vnet/
This issue is not really a good brand image for Azure. How is it possible IPV6 in not yet supported (May 2016) ?
We’ll look into this one. For the time being, please have subscription owners setup tag policies and be on the lookout for more governance improvements coming soon.
Today, it is a real mess to have to move Azure services from one subscription to another to optimize cost according to the complexity and limitations.
This problem could lies into a too big dependency between the technical subscription concept and the billing subscription concept.
My many cases, there is in fact no need at all to change of technical subscription, but only to optimize cost.
Azure could become smart and agile in this area.
On direct move into that direction would be to have consolidated Azure credits and apply them only on the last step of a consolidated invoice when due amount is calculated for the given month.
In "usage and billing" portal, each customer would have a tool to manage "Cost Centers" according to their internal cost structure.
In the Azure portal, I think what is important to define, is the region/datacenter and the option to specify a cost center but no more a direct link to subscription.
By default a new subscription would be associated to a cost center (an existing one or a new one to create).
Next according to the monthly usage report of each service and the cost center associated with, the billing process will optimize consomption to reduce the final bill according to set of subscriptions per customers (available per cost center).
Azure has this capability already with EA & CSP. We would like to offer this for Web direct customers as well.

Great, in this process Azure Credits should also be consolidated and apply only on the last step for the final amount to be payed. This would avoid a lot of mess trying to optimize cost by moving services from one subscription to another (with all problems and limitations we know).
We are looking into the requirements. Can you please elaborate the scenarios?
That’s what we strive towards: a consistent experience! What would you say are the services you are most anxious to see come on-premises first?
Thank you for the feedback! We will look into the possibility of bringing this on-premise.
Reactivating this request…apologies that it was closed due to misunderstanding of your intent.
We’ll take this request as: I need a simple way to host IP space that I own as Public IP’s in Azure which I can then use on my Azure-hosted services/VM’s.
We’ve had multiple requests for this feature recently and are actively working through the design now. Unfortunately, we don’t have an estimated release date yet.
This is something we are working to change, it is indeed an unnecessary email.
Let us look at improving this UI.
