  1. Admins can assign Azure AD security groups to app groups.

    Instead of assigning individual users to my app groups, I would like to assign an Azure AD security group that says in sync with the app group.

  2. Remove reliance on Active Directory Domain Services

    My idea is for WVD VMs to be capable of being joined to Azure AD only (not AD DS).

    For cloud-only or cloud-first customers the requirement to join VMs to an AD DS domain is restrictive and in some cases is the only reason that that customer stands up AD DS at all. Though this is made easier with Azure AD DS because no on-premises infrastructure or IaaS is required, the principle of using Azure AD only and benefiting from the same management approaches which are used to provision and manage physical AAD joined (only) devices in Autopilot and Intune…

  3. Integrate Task Scheduler-based Scaling Script into Azure Automation with Hybrid Runbook Worker

    We should automatically scale session hosts. Currently, such a script is published by Microsoft, but the script must be configured in the task scheduler and have additional VM that runs the scheduled task. We don't like additional VM to reduce costs.
    Therefore, we want an environment that can implement the script without using an additional VM, using Azure Automation with Hybrid Runbook Worker configuration.

  4. Faster way to identify which host a user is logged into

    Often it can be necessary to force a user's session to log off, currently it is required to view the users logged in on each host seperately before then ending their sessions. Unless there is a way to do this at the host pool level? Ideally a view similar to the view in Server 2016 on the connection broker that shows all users, their currently assigned session host and the ability to log them out.

  5. Integrate WVD App consent and RD tenent creation into the VWD wizard

    There are to many complex steps to setup the VWD for the first time.
    The WVD app consent https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/
    and the creation of the RD Tenant should be included or atomatic when using the wizard to setup a WVD.
