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?
Visio is the most common tool so this is preferable.

Reality usually is that the diagramming follows the creation of the resources after the fact. Plus the architecture evolves over time rendering the original specs out of date so having a tool that dynamically renders a diagram from Azure resources (Visio would be great) would be very helpful to OPs and Dev teams
Brian Rathburn commented
At the very least an Azure Visio Template or a Shape package with the official Azure resource icons would be helpful.

Visio for us

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.
Would love to see this functionality as well going forward.
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
