How can we improve the Azure SDK and Tools?

Export Resource Group to Visio Diagram

loving the power of Resource Groups. Was thinking that it would be useful to be able to do Get-AzureResourceGroupToVisio where it would generate diagram with the relevant Shapes for resource types and show connections between (say) Web Sites and SQL Databases / Servers

    We are looking into this… is Visio the end goal here or just something that will help visualize the contents of the template/resource group?

        At the very least an Azure Visio Template or a Shape package with the official Azure resource icons would be helpful.

        Visio is the obvious choice here. One of my responsibilities is to diagram the Azure resources provisioned for any given project. Doing it by hand is tedious and time consuming. Especially if a resource is changed or updated.

        I think this would be a great way to visualize a complex environment and save manually updating doco.

        It would also be great if it documented the network, security groups, and any ACLs or Role Based Access controls
