  1. All Virtual Machine should be search with their IP Address too like we do search with their hostname

    The other cloud providers like AWS , we can get machine detail with ip address but in Azure it is not possible , any how we need to find hostname afterward we can get machine detail .

  2. Include tenant name in Azure Portal's URL

    It would be great if the URLs to the portal contained Tenant's name / ID, because when you share it to external co-workers, they would get switched to the correct tenant and subscriptions.

    So instead of having:
    https://portal.azure.com/#resource/subscriptions/bc517954-9e1f-44ea-9399-32e3b62546c6/resourceGroups/crm/overview
    you would have:
    https://portal.azure.com/#tenantId/resource/subscriptions/bc517954-9e1f-44ea-9399-32e3b62546c6/resourceGroups/crm/overview

  3. Portal is really slow when using B2C tenant

    We have two B2C tenants and both are painfully slow to navigate, 30 seconds+ to open a user profile and another 30 seconds+ to do operations.

  4. Filter/Sort Option in VM Sizes selection option

    While creating a VM, the step for choosing a VM Size will be easier if there was a filter or sort option.

    Each time for creating a VM we need to scroll though the list to find the right one. Instead we can sort by price or filter the number or cores /ram would be helpful.

  6. Allow sorting of data lake files viewed through data explorer by date modified, size, and name; both ascending and descending

    Allow sorting of data lake files and folders viewed through data explorer by date modified, size, and name; both ascending and descending. This functionality is surely very simple to implement and also makes the data lake data explorer a lot more usable.

  7. Context lost upon refresh

    Today as you perform a browser refresh (F5) your context is lost. This is contributes to bad user experience as you're losing the context of your work.
    Would be much better if the full context was stored in the URL (# part) so it would be fully restored, making the context-based navigation more usable.

  8. Do more in place and use the full screen - avoid horizontal scrolling

    Simplify the portal by doing more in place. The horizontal scrolling seems to cause too many, unnecessary clicks, which makes the UI to jump around a lot and quickly becomes overwhelming with so much on the screen at once. It's hard to focus on what's most important and, when there's only one blade, half the screen is empty with critical messages all the way on the other side. Make better use of screen real estate and stop moving things around so much. It's distracting. I love the portal, but all the movement gets in the way. Let us focus on…

  9. Can Azure portal show permalink to any specified resource or page?

    Team,

    Currently, Azure portal does not generate or show up permalink in address bar. We could not share a link to the certain page or resource across peers.

    This begs another peer to navigate to that resource from square one.

    Do we have reasons for not having permalink?

  10. Ability to search devices using "EAS activation ID" in Intune portal

    In the Ibiza-style Intune portal, you can enter a computer name or device name or UPN in the Filters, but you cannot use "EAS activation ID".

    If a user has 10 devices enrolled under same UPN, such machines may have same computer names, especially if the user plays with VMs or so...
    This makes hard to send a "Reboot or Fresh Start" MDM command to the right machine : you have to ask the user for EAS ID, then click on every identical machine name and compare the EAS ID in the "Hardware" tab.

  11. Proper searching for VMs based on Size and other VM fields

    The current search is woefully inadequate. Check how AWS makes the portal usable, and allows ability to search resources with regex even.

  12. Search, sort and filter option needed. Much like Excel spreadsheet style auto filtering

    I see hundreds of resources when click on all resources. Need ability to auto filter on type and the sort on various columns

    We have done a lot of improvement on sorting and filtering aspect of “All resources” and tried to add most common filters on UI.

    Are there any specifics you are looking for where we can Improve more on Sorting\Filtering on All resources?

    Thanks,
    Portal Team

  13. Filter Item Wildcards For Easier Search Capabilities

    When looking at a long list of several resources (all resources or items within a resource group) with long naming conventions there is no easy way to search/filter what you are looking for without spelling out the beginning of the resource.

    It would be convenient to type: %item%prod% to be able to gather all resources containing that specific "item" and in "prod".
    i.e. itemeus1storageprod1

  14. Create tree view in Portal for subscriptions, resource groups and resources

    I'd like an easy way to quickly explore my deployed Azure services using a tree view like the left hand pane in Windows Explorer.
    I would expect the tree view to start at my current top level. By which I mean if I can see multiple subs then that would be the first layer of the tree, then resource groups, then resources.
    Clicking a resource will open the blade for that resource.

  15. Allow horizontal scrolling on a pageable grid

    The way that Scrolling is currently implemented, it forces both a vertical and horizontal scrolling.
    We would like to use paging for getting more rows, and horizontal scrolling to enable the user to add many columns, and still see them clearly.

  16. Consistent Status Column

    In the old Portal, there was a "status" column under "All Items". In the new Portal, "Browse > All Items" does not have one, nor an option to add it. If you drill down into specific areas (Virtual Machines, Storage Accounts, Cloud Services, etc.), some have a "status" column while others do not. It would be nice to have the "status" column show up consistently in all areas, and to have it in "Browse > All Items" to make it easier to see what's running and what's idle / stopped. Thank you!

  17. Make column resizing more like Windows (i.e. predictable)

    Right now it's a bit of whack-a-mole when you resize a column; other column names become partially obscured and/or arbitrarily resize, plus there is no way to just resize them all to fit (like CTRL++ in Windows Explorer)

  18. Make the portal(s) tabbed browsing friendly

    The new portal while shiny and new, and metro, and shiny, can be a bit of a beautiful annoyance at times. My current annoyance is that navigating between two related, but not the same entities is frustrating. In a tabbed browsing approach, this is a single click on the correct tab in my browser. In the new portal, this is a bunch of clicks depending on the level of shared hierarchy. Neither right clicking / middle clicking work to allow me to open a view in a new window. Please consider the target users of this portal (they're going to…

  19. Refresh button in each blade

    Provide a refresh button/option in each blade.
    Scenario i found this need: provisioning a SharePoint farm. In the process of Azure assets creation, when i look at the resource group blade, i need to hit F5 to see the process of different VMs, cloud services etc being created.

    Not high level priority but can be useful.

  20. Occasionally a vertical column opens but scrolls right

    Using Chrome, I find that sometimes a new column opens but then the view scrolls to the right so that column is mostly off the screen.
