    Agreed. Another half-a-job implementation. The "Allow trusted Microsoft services to access this storage account" option is worthless. It also affects AzureRM.Automation. New-AzureRmAutomationModule doesn't work when the SA firewall is enabled.

    https://github.com/Azure/azure-powershell/issues/5885

    I thought about adding the published Azure DataCenter IP addresses to the firewall. I added all UK South and UK South 2 IP ranges, no luck.

    In creating the github issue, the debug output seems to suggest the automation account is actually in West Europe. I started adding the West Europe IP ranges, before hitting a limit on the maximum number of IP addresses / ranges that can be entered.

    @Microsoft, if you can't give us more information on what IP ranges do what, then allow us to add more ranges. Whilst you're about it, I suggest you add a separate blade for the IP range list, as it's going to get very long and ugly.

    @Microsoft moderator: If you move this suggestion, would you kindly let us know where you move it to.

    Why can’t you use the ProvisioningState property from the Get-AzureRmAutomationModule cmdlet? ProvisioningState should show as “Creating” until all the cmdlets are extracted.

    As a side note since it is somewhat related. We are currently working on providing more detailed feedback in the UX on module import status so it is more apparent that the module is still extracting activities. We are also working on bubbling up underlying errors that caused activities to fail to extract.

    @Kan, nice find. How did you find it, or was it trial and error?
    @Microsoft, shouldn't Visual Studio (2017) pick this up?

    Hi folks,

    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.

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files

    This still isn't even under review????

    I found a great article on the VM agent (http://www.deployazure.com/compute/virtual-machines/azure-vm-agent-extensions-deep-dive-part-3/), even listing the special IP address you use (168.63.129.16), however when I go to add it as a user defined route (168.63.129.16/32), I get the error:

    "Failed to add route 'DirectRouteToVMAgent' to route table 'XYZ'. Error: AddressPrefix 168.63.129.16/32 for route DirectRouteToVMAgent is not allowed because its in restricted address space."

    Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! Why Microsoft, why. Every which way I turn, you throw a spanner in the works. You really do want use to move to AWS don't you?

    Adrian Walker commented  · 

    Come on MS. This is CRITICAL. A MASSIVE failing that there is no way to configure proxies in the agent BEFORE the VM is stood up. It is a legal requirement for organisation in the UK to monitor internet traffic. I expect this extends to the US too. Therefore companies are obligated to direct all internet traffic.
    If the Azure VM agent must go out to the internet to do it's job and as it is so important to automation, you need to get this sorted ASAP. It should be at the very top of your list. In fact it should have been done from the outset. It;s such a massive failing, I can't understand why it hasn't been done.

    Thanks for posting this suggestion!

    There are a couple of existing features that may get you most of what you are looking for.

    1. While we do not have a debug mode where you can step through your runbook and see output, we do have an Add-On for the ISE and you can debug your runbooks in the ISE. http://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/AzureAutomationAuthoringToolkit/0.2.3.1

    2. If you are using graphical runbooks, there are settings that you can turn on to show exactly what is happening and what command ran with it by turning on additional logging. Select your graphical runbook > Settings > Logging and Tracing > turn on Verbose and change Trace Level to detailed to get the level of detail you are looking for.

    3. For scripts, you can set your verbose preference to continue (instead of silentlycontinue) in your runbook to debug and write to the verbose stream. $VerbosePreference =…

    Adrian Walker commented  · 

    It's a "TEST" pane. Verbose should be on by default.

    Thanks for the feedback! We are interested in collecting feedback on this request – please vote for it if this is something you like to see.

    We’re also interested in learning more what people want to use the SFTP/FTPS for and which protocol they prefer. Please feel free to leave us a comment letting us know more detail!
