  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…

    • 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.

            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.

                        Hey,

                        As you may already be aware we have release a mobile app for managing/monitoring your resources on Azure.
                        https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/features/azure-portal/mobile-app/

                        You should be able to achieve most of the basic management operations within the app. Please give it a go and let us know your feedback. You can submit requests specifically for the app here https://feedback.azure.com/forums/568069-azure-app/filters/top

                        Thanks!

                      • 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.

                        • Expose Subscription Quotas in Portal

                          Many times I have had to request for quota increases for my customers. We offer Azure onboard training to our customers and this is one of the very first things I tell the customer to do once they get their subscription to avoid failed deployments. The problem is that there are so many quota limitations but no where to view them. You can assume they are the defaults but what if someone else has made a change. You can see core quotas when submitting an SR in the portal or use PowerShell to see these but you cant see any…

                            • Complete the new portal (merge all features from old portal)

                              Currently, there are some features that can only be managed in the old portal, and some that can only be managed in the new portal.
                              This is kind of ridiculous; for example, it means that our "new instance setup" for our application, requires administrators to use pieces of both portals in order to get our application working.

                              We have been living with both portals for the last 8 months at least, and there doesn't seem to be any end to this in sight.

                                  I'd like to be able to select multiple resources in the list and delete them in one click. Currently this is not supported. Deletion of resources is a painful manual process with multiple clicks and blades per resources.

                                  Please add a checkbox next to each resource, a checkbox at the top to select all and a button "Delete"

                                    Hey,

                                    We’ve been investing in this recently. Via browse you will be able to multi select and carry out some bulk actions; Assign tags/delete from All resources for example. From the App Service browse list you can carry out start/stop etc.. We’re working to expand the bulk commands.

                                    To see a preview of this please try out https://preview.portal.azure.com/

                                  • 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"

                                      • Document URLs necessary to configure corporate firewalls

                                        Some companies block access to websites using their firewall and need to white-list specific URLs in order for the portal to work. Common errors that indicate firewall configuration issues include:

                                        "Some subscriptions couldn't be retrieved"

                                          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
                                          *.windows.net
                                          *.azurecomcdn.net

                                          *.newrelic.com

                                          Please let us know if we missed any.

                                        • When we add the NSG security rules it would be nice if we can chose a "Azure data centar" tag .

                                          When we add the NSG security rules it would be nice if we can chose a "Azure data centar" tag like "Internet" tag in the destination tag.
