  1. Group charges on my bill by "Resource Group" for easier identification of costs by Resource

    Maybe I'm doing this wrong, but as I add additional projects to my subscription it is becoming increasingly difficult to know how much each project is costing - having the bill subtotaled by resource group (how I understand the charges are accumulating) would be a great help.
    Seeing just the global headings is less than helpful.
    AND having to watch a video how to understand my bill is a surprising answer to the issue.

    • Allow user to select IP used by VM Connect button (Public or Private IP)

      My organization locked down our Azure environment to not allow RDP access from the public internet but, now the VM Connect button on the Azure portal does not use the VM's private IP. It would be a nice feature to allow the user to select either to use the Public IP or Private IP for their VM Connect buttons.

      • Azure DNS CAA records

        Under Azure DNS we should be able to add the record type CAA for DNS Certification Authority Authorization. If we are to move any production DNS zones into Azure then that is a MUST-HAVE.

        • Firewall& Network option of Azure Storage

          Azure Storage firewall & network from same RG VNETS is not allowed it seems for security.

          example -

          VNETS in the same RG as storage are not allowed to access the storage bucket if selected to access storage from selected networks.IT SHOULD BE BY DEFAULT.

          I only shows VNETS to select from other RG's which I dont want.I want this storage to be accessed from the VM's of the SAME RG.

          Please add this by default.This will really improve security.

          • Provide Rename option to all resources,

            If Azure will provide the rename/edit option to resources, that's good feature. because if any infrastructure changes need then we can't do that, again we have to create new resource with new resource name.please provide option to edit r modify the resource names

              • Link to vsts project coupled with server (continious integration)

                The new preview feature where you can connect a vsts project/repo to an azure server to automatically test and deploy is very useful. however, it would be incredibly useful to have an overview where you can see which vsts project is coupled with which server/db etc. (the overview visible ofcourse in the azure portal)

                This might require some data to be sent from the vsts application, however even when azure simply asks for an url that will suffice. it is just to get an idea where every server connects to/gets its data from.

                  • Unified Identity Management

                    Getting a handle on our expenses, the different related MSFT sites, and the current spend is impossible. Each month I have to log in to several different sites (with different credentials) to collect information. Some subscriptions aren't available in the portal. Logging in is a mystery. Live.com? Outlook.com? Microsoftonline.com, and redirections between those 3 depending upon what kind of credentials I log in.

                    • Create a "Domain Auditor" role

                      With the new demands for more and more detailed auditing and compliance verifications, I would like a "Global Auditor" role to be created which would be similar in access to Enterprise or Domain Admins, but Read Only.

                      As a busy admin, I don't have time to go get screenshots of group after group and chase down nested rabbit holes. I want the auditors to go look for themselves. Go take whatever screenshots you want anywhere you want in the domain. Don't ask me who has little time and frankly, the most incentive to cover something up if something should not…

                            This can be a catastrophic event if backups are not made.
                            A secondary account holder should be contacted before the VM's, resource managers and storage are deleted.

                            • Easy way to send a IIS recycle command to Azure Cloud Service instances

                              Sometimes, we might need to restart the Azure Cloud Services instances just to make sure application running on IIS is restarted. Normally we could have done this by doing RDP and recycle the app from the application. But this is painful. Instead of this, we prefer to restart the machine directly within the portal.

                              But restart takes much time than recycle operation. Hence, it would be great if we had an option to send IIS recycle command to machine.

                              Thank you

                              • Allow VM capture to cool storage

                                The VM capture in the portal should offer (as default) the option to store the captured data in the cheapest storage available (cool / archive)
                                Since the backup is typically accessed on disasters (hopefully never) it makes no sense to pay the frequent access tier price for this data.
                                I know that actually there is a blob format issue for vhds that use page blobs vs cool storage that use block blob , but I leave this conversion problems to your engineers, as a user what I want is an easy, frictionless service right in the portal, that backups my…

                                  • Moving resources from a zero-credit subscription to a new one

                                    Currently, if a resource is associated to a subscription whose credit goes to zero, it's not possible to assign the resource to a new subscription with non-zero credit. Please make it possible! Often I cannot refund the zero-credit old subscription, but I have credit in another one, but I cannot move it because Azure says "Current subscription is disabled". Thanks!

                                    • Bring back Search in NSG Rules panel!

                                      I see there is a tweak in panel when adding a new security rule to NSG, but now the Search field is missing for Inbound and Outbound rules! Bring it back PLS!!! It helped us manage the rules (and of course add Description field ;))
