  1. Request to add ability to create favorite menus on any blade.

    Frequent changes in the Azure portal has been applied. That changes contains the move of menus. We sometimes provide demonstration to customers to get new opportunities. But unfortunately, "the change" applied right before the demonstration!!

    Azure is Cloud environment so we cannot say "Don't change". But we actually failed in the contract because we couldn't operate Azure portal smoothly.... So we request you to add ability to create favorite menus on all blade. If you provide, we don't have time to search menus.

  4. [Feature Request] Add search option for storage account in portal

    In many places in the portal when selecting a storage account you have no search option this means if you have many storage accounts like we do you need to scroll through a list of storage accounts to find the desired one.

    One example of where this is the case is connecting an Log Analytics work space to a storage account. Another is when enabling diagnostics on some infrastructure components.

  5. View My Bill should go to my bill - there are too many clicks in between: I should also be able to put current balance on the dashboard

    View My Bill should go to my bill - there are too many clicks in between: I should also be able to see my current balance on the dashboard and burn rate in a simple window. This is important information I like to check frequently. I should not have to go off the dashboard to get this information.

  6. search by network/address

    Search for networks or addresses.

    If I go to virtual networks I can see all my networks. But I can't search any of them with the search bar. It would be great to be able to search for networks by address.

  7. Add a column showing the account name that created the resource

    It would be good to add a column showing the username/account name of the person who created the resource when viewing a Resource Group (or list of Resources) as it's a nightmare to trawl through logs and find out at the moment.

  8. Search in Azure portal should always find English search results as well as local language

    When I find an Azure portal feature I want to use, e g on a cool blog, MSDN or other information, I want to find it in the list with English search words, but I still like the portal to remain in Swedish. E g now if I search for storage, nothing comes up. Some of the translations are not 100% so hard to guess the translation also. Can we have both English + local language search?

    English - Swedish examples:
    Storage accounts - Lagringskonton
    Subscriptions - Prenumerationer

  9. Search should suggest related areas if no direct match

    Firstly, IT Pro's don't think of "Recovery Services" they think of backup. So firstly, I think you should use industry terminology rather than "Microsoft speak".
    Secondly, if I type in "backup", can search suggest related areas like "Did you mean Recovery Services?" or "Best Match: Recovery Services"

  10. View your full email and/or subscription at the top

    I use multiple email addresses with different email domains to manage multiple accounts. Some accounts have multiple subscriptions to them.

    However, the space where the email address is displayed at the top too small. I can't tell which email I'm looking at.

    And if you have multiple subscriptions, there isn't a way to know which subscription is which because it only shows the id -- not the organization it is associated with.

  12. nueva catalogacion de los sevicios segun el "XaaS"

    Creo muy ideal el catalogar los servicios actuales bajo las definiciones teóricas de modelo IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. Por ejemplo, bajo el marco IaaS se asocian los servicios de virtual machine, etc, bajo el marco de PaaS se asocian los servcios de SQL, Hadoop, etc. Bajo el marco de DaaS se asocian servicios como Intune, etc.

  13. Sort "Choose a size" by cost, size, or alphabetically, allow list view

    When creating a virtual machine, the "Choose a size" screen is busy and the default layout is difficult to digest.

    The following would be helpful:
    + Allowing a list view with Name, CPU, Disk, and Price as sortable columns
    + Allow sorting of the tiles by Name, Price, etc
    + Already have a "Recommended" filter; add a "Recently Used" filter

  14. The selected directory is lost all the time.

    The selected directory is lost all the time.

    In half a dozen scenarios, the selected directory is lost, causing all sorts of trouble throughout the portal.
    1. When you timeout and click "reload".
    2. When the portal opens a new tab to get you into the SCM portal. This occurs from multiple places when configuring an Azure WebSite.
    3. When you ctrl-click a link to open something in a new tab to have two copies of the portal open.
    4. When you open a second copy of the portal by copy/pasting the URL.
    5. A few more scenarios I've found…

  15. Allow scrolling the multiple blades that are open using the mouse scroll wheel.

    When there is multiple blades/panes open and the horizontal scroll bar shows up, it woule be good if we can scroll from left to right using the vertical mouse scroll wheel.

    If the blade/pane under the cursor has content that needs to be vertically scrolled, vertical scroll has the priority, once it reaches the limit, then scroll horizontally depending on the direction.

  16. Dragging of Windows and Show The previous Window

    I would like to suggest the moving of the windows on top of each other. So as you can be able to see the previous information behind the current window. I attached the windows related look and feel.

  18. Global and Local Subscription Filtering Options

    Here are the problems this would solve:


    • Right now all filtering is global, which is not obvious at first.

      • Going back to a previous journey that used a different filter does not restore the filter. Having this as a local filter to the journey should fix this.




    There could be a “Global Filters” in the left menu bar that you can select and could filter your subscriptions (and maybe other things in the future), or I could see the “Global Filtering” being done in the existing subscriptions menu in the left hand blade, or even changing the portal settings filtering…

  19. Enable search keyword filters in Azure Portal

    In the new Search capability, released at GA time, I'd like the ability to specify keyword filters. Here are a few examples I'd envision:

    "name:tre" - This should find all Resources, of all types, that contain "tre" (case insensitive)

    "type:vnet" - This should return all Resources that are of type Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks.

    The feature should auto-complete the names of the keyword filters, so that users don't have to remember exactly what the keywords are. Furthermore, the feature should start returning matching results as soon as the user starts typing a few characters.
