  1. Ability to move resources from one resource group to another

    In regard to Resource Groups, there is a particular feature I feel is missing: the ability of moving one resource from a resource group to another. Basically, the situation is like this: upon the lauch of the new portal, each of my Azure storage accounts and websites I've been using was added into a single Resource Group. Therefore, website A which was consuming data from a storage account with a similar name (A) ended up into two different Resource Groups: Default-Storage-NorthEurope and Default-Web-NorthEurope. Right now, whenever I navigate to the Resource Groups blade I get lots of generic named resource…

      Hey Folks,

      We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

      We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

      Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

      Thanks,
      Azure Portal Team

    • move services between subscriptions

      I've noticed that many people want this, an easy way to move not only Virtual Machine but also websites, cloud services, SQL Databases between datacenters / subscriptions. I'm looking forward to this feature.

      • Allow for comments or notes on resources

        A text description on resources/things would be great for keeping track of what each resource/thing is.

        • List of ALL the subscriptions associated to my User Login.

          Currently the portal shows in the "Subscriptions" section only the subscription associated to the Directory (AAD) that is selected by default. I have several subscriptions associated to several directories.

            • One portal for all Microsoft products i.e (azure+office365+intune)

              This might be additional feature in the marketplace to connect intune, office365 or any other Microsoft product.

              • Import Azure configurations into Visio

                I would like a process to export all the azure configurations and import them into Visio to be able to build accurate architecture diagrams of the environment.
                This would allow for a 'point in time' reference for what is the current state.
                Expanding on this would be the ability to have templates of diagrams to represent different perspectives of the environment ( network / server details / etc. ).
                Through the use of TAGS and Metadata, you could produce the layout of platforms / applications / business aligned systems / etc.

                Producing these artifacts and versioning over time will show…

                • Add Generate Powershell Script options wherever possible in the Azure Management portal

                  Like in SQL server Management Studio - you can set up what you want to do and then click a Save as Script or Generate Script button to get the SQL that will do the same thing.

                  In the Azure Portal, it would be awesome at the end of the "New" wizards to have an option to generate the Powershell commands to do the same thing.

                    • Merge Resource Groups

                      As an azure user I would like the ability to select two or more resource groups in the portal and select merge which would result in all the groups being consolidated into one. One of the selected resource groups would be selected as the "target" group and all other groups would be removed.

                      This would be a faster version of the delete and consolidate option I've also posted.

                      • Azure Designer tool

                        My Idea was to create a Azure Designer tool in the Azure portal which can enable Azure Engineers and Architects to design a Azure services as per customer requirements and convert them as a blue print or Archictect diagrams for customers or for implementations.

                        • Notification should persist across browser refresh.

                          Notifications disappear from the list of notification on page refresh it seems. I would prefer dismissing them explicitly.

                          • When selecting a location, how to save as DEFAULT.

                            When creating a new VM, I have to choose my location each time - eg. I choose 'South-East Australia' everytime.

                            It would be good to have this as a "Portal Setting"

                                The portal uses cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) to communicate to back-end services directly from the browser. We are working with our partner teams to get a full list of URLs required to manage your resources in the portal. Here are a few known URLs:

                                *.azure.com
                                *.azure.net

                                  It would be great if we could get the "code" for the operations we perform (either the REST call or the PowerShell call) that's happening behind the scenes in the portal.

                                    For instance, when I am on the Dev Console and I tap the onscreen keyboard, I can't see what I am typing. Similarly, when I want to select some text, it doesn't work with text. Dragging tiles is also a problem.

                                    • Todo tile, to guide me though action needed

                                      Notification tells me about things that HAVE happened give me a place to tell me what I need TODO.

                                      - System generated for things like Credit Card expiring, Cert Expiring etc.
                                      - Allow users to add TODO from Each Blade - For example Reminder to scale down after Promo ends on 12/15

                                      Clicking on TODO should take them to where action can be performed

                                      • Show progress on long running tasks

                                        In the new preview portal whan a long operartion is ongoing (like the SharePoint famr creation) there should be more verbose Information in the Notification area so the user knows on what stage the deployment is happening

                                          We show in progress tasks, but we definitely want to add more details to those. Let us know what kind of details you’d like to see (e.g. how granular). It’d be helpful to understand how much detail would be useful and what would be overwhelming.

                                          Azure should have a option to rename the "ResourceGroup". That would be easier for us to manage the resources
