You don't have a be a Microsoft MVP to engage with Microsoft product teams, and help give feedback! One of the best ways that the Microsoft product teams engage with the community- is through Public Community Calls!

Here is a list of the community calls across Microsoft Azure products.

TopicLinkNotes
Azure Landing Zonehttps://aka.ms/ALZ/CommunityCallAgendaAzure Landing Zones news roundup and updates
Microsoft 365 Platform Communityhttps://pnp.github.io/#communityNot specifically Azure related, but related more to the M365/Modern workspace.
Windows Customer Connectionhttps://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-it-pro-blog/join-the-windows-customer-connection-program/ba-p/3473775Not specifically Azure related, but related more to the Windows OS (Operating System)
Azure Development Community Callhttps://github.com/Azure/azure-dev/discussions/categories/announcementsAzure Developers Community Call
Azure Governance & Deploymentshttps://github.com/Azure/azure-policy#general-questionsSame as the ARM/Bicep community call. Also features Azure Policy.
Cloud Securityhttps://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/security-compliance-and-identity/join-our-security-community/ba-p/927888This is a 'Private' community. Meaning that feedback for Cloud security products (Defender, Sentinel etc) is under NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). A great community to get early feedback and testing, to help the products grow.
Azure ARM/Bicep Community Callshttps://github.com/Azure/bicep/issues?q=label%3A%22Community+Call%22+
Azure Archttps://github.com/microsoft/azure_arc_community
PowerShell Community Callhttps://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell-RFC/tree/master/CommunityCall

There may be other communities I have missed - so feel free to add links in the comments.

Up-to-date links to additional public Microsoft community calls can also be found on the AWESOME-Azure-Architecture list.

Cost Analysis in Microsoft Azure allows you to analyse the cost of your services; these services can be scoped into Resource Groups, Resources and Services; you can also group your services by Tags.

Azure tags are name-value pairs used to organize resources. You can apply tags for individual resources, display show back or ownership and can be used for automation - but what assigning parent/child relationships to your resources?

Tags work well for most used cases, but there may be times when you want to get a more in-depth view of the service and dependencies - this is where the "cm-resource-parent" tag comes in.

Introduced in Cost Analysis preview, Q3 of 2022, the 'cm-resource-parent tag' allows you to Group related resources together - to help give you a quick view of the solution's total cost in a parent/child relationship. The 'cm' in the tag stands for: Cost Management.

cm-resource-parent Child Relationship

To use the cm-resource-parent tag, you must choose a parent resource (an example may be an App Service or an Azure Virtual Desktop host pool). No changes will be made to this resource, but you need the ResourceID of the resource to apply to Child resources.

To find the ResourceID of the parent resource, you can use the Azure Portal, by

  1. Open the resource that you want to be the parent of.
  2. Select Properties in the resource menu.
  3. Find the Resource ID property and copy its value.

You can easily use PowerShell to find the ResourceID as well:

$ResourceName = 'Parent Resource'
Get-AzResource -Name $ResourceName | Select-Object ResourceId

A resource ID looks like this (you will need to copy the full thing, this will be used on your child's resources):

/subscriptions/4501c644-74a3-4bfc-a456-16425eccd2a4/resourceGroups/vm-preprod-rg/providers/Microsoft.Network/publicIPAddresses/VM-T01-ip

Once you have the Resource ID of your resource, it is time to tag your Child's resources.

As an Azure Tag is a Key/Value pair - the tags will be similar to:

NameValue
cm-resource-parent/subscriptions/4501c644-74a3-4bfc-a456-16425eccd2a4/resourceGroups/vm-preprod-rg/providers/Microsoft.Network/publicIPAddresses/VM-T01-ip

To apply the ResourceID of the parent resource, you can use the Azure Portal, by

  1. Open the resource you want to be the child of the parent you selected above.
  2. Click Tags
  3. Add in: cm-resource-parent in the value and the resource ID of your parent as a value.

Note: You cannot have a multi-hierarchy, i.e. a Parent, then Child and Child off that - it is purely a Parent and Child relationship at this stage. Also, the Resource ID will change if the Parent resources are moved to another Resource group or subscription.

These Tags can work easily with other cost management tags you may be using (but you cannot have more than one cm-resource-parent tag), so it doesn't replace but supplements your visibility. They are supported on any resource that is Tag-capable.

You may have to wait up to a day (24 hours) before the changes are visible in Azure Cost Analysis.

I have the Azure Naming Tool deployed in my example and would like to see the overall cost; these resources are deployed across multiple resources in the same subscription.

Choosing my WebApp as my parent resource, I tagged all child resources (App Service Plan, Container Registry, Storage Account) with the relevant tag and resource ID as seen below:

Azure Portal - Child resource

After 24 hours, I then went to the Cost Analysis (Preview) and selected Resources and could view the current cost of my service after a few days of use.

Azure Cost Analysis

And another example can be seen below - where I have added a Public IP as a child resource of the Azure storage account, which, although the parent in this relationship, is a child in the Azure Naming Tool.

Azure Cost Analysis

As you can see, the 'cm-resource-parent' is another way to group related resources of different types from a cost analysis angle; still, in preview, this tag opens up the door for various other initiatives across observability, security stacks etc.

Although not tested, you also should be able to output the resource ID of your Bicep code and add that as a variable for any resources deployed via Infrastructure as Code.

It's worth noting that this feature is still in Preview at the time of this article, so if you incur any bugs or have feature requests, you can use the 'Rate the Cost Analysis Preview' feature in the Azure Portal to supply feedback to the product teams.

This was asked in the Microsoft forums; with the change of platform from being able to see and download certificates for the competition of your Microsoft exam with Pearsonvue to the new Microsoft Learn experience, you might find yourself lost when attempting to view (and print) your hard-earned Microsoft certificate!

The certificate format has also been refreshed.

Old

Microsoft certificate

New

Microsoft certificate

To view and print your certificate:

  1. Navigate to: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/users/me/activity/
  2. Click on: Certifications
  3. Find your certificate and click on View certification details.
  4. Click a Print certification, then click Print and you can print and save it as a PDF or print (remember to uncheck print Headers and footers, to remove any footers from the print).
  5. Microsoft Learn - Certificate details

If you want to download it, you can print it to a PDF, to save the certificate to your computer.

When attempting to deploy an Azure Firewall, you may get an error: Conflict, DeploymentFailed error. This error can occur when you have an expressroute connection, and the Firewall is not deployed in Force Tunneled mode, as the routes from the BGP link will be replacing the default Azure internet route, required for the Azure Firewall.

"code": "InternalServerError",
"message": "An error occurred."

Deployment Failed - Azure Firewall

If you click Input in the deployment, you may notice your vnetName, vnetAddressSpace and subnetAddressSpace are blank.

Azure Firewall deployment

Even though the Azure Firewall will appear as deployed. You will notice that it won't have a Private IP assigned.

To resolve this error:

  1. Delete the Azure Firewall that has been partially deployed
  2. Create a User Defined route for the internet:
NameAddress PrefixNext hop type
Internet0.0.0.0/0Internet
  1. Link it to the AzureFirewallSubnet
  2. Redeploy

This error may occur as your internet route may flow via BGP routes from on-premises; the user-defined route will override this route.
