We are aware of the requirement to be able to convert a synced user to cloud only and are designing that feature, but we have no timelines to share right now.
We reverted the change that would block the “hack” to delete and restore a user to change a user to “Cloud Only”.
We’re working on global file locking and will share more once we’re ready to start the preview program.
Please help us understand your requirements by filling out this survey: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=v4j5cvGGr0GRqy180BHbR4MoPQd5uTpCnj3Y_cY3MXRUMUZWRlZOWEFKNUE1QUNBN0JQTjQwQ0tYUi4u
Cross-region read replicas are now available in public preview. You can create up to five read-only replicas in any region supported by the MySQL service.
To get started, please use the Azure portal to select the location for your read replica: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-read-replicas-portal#create-a-read-replica
