  1. Sorting the virtual machines based on running status.

    In the portal.azure.com, when we view the virtual machine resources, it is getting listed by the name of the VM, status, resource group, location, subscription. Where we are allowed to sort the resources by name, location, resource group, location, subscription but not by the status. It would be great if we have this. This will help the infra maintenance engineers while collecting data from the portal

  2. Integrate Tile for PowerBI Reports \ Dashboards in Azure Dashboard

    Could the PowerBI Team and Azure Portal team collaborate and create a new Tile to support PBI and the embedded Web view on the Azure Dashboard. PBIs like ER Statistics ( https://github.com/tvuylsteke/azure-ea-powerbi/tree/master/Express%20Route%20Stats%20-%20V1 ) and others would be great to pin on a Azure Dashboard - There seems to be a limitation today with PBI push API embedded Web that prevents this from using in a Markdown Tile - ( https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/502f0922-1dca-4d94-9942-c3f073190a5c/power-bi-dashboard-on-azure-portal?forum=windowsazuremanagement )

    Is there thought on allowing PBI Tile on Azure Dashboard or integration with markdown Tile or a future tile being developed ?

  3. Custom titles for dashboard tiles

    The default tile titles like "Total calls and errors today" don't say what resource the tile represents. Either add the resource or add a way to customize the title.

  4. Dashboard need to be more userfriendly

    consider you are in the vm blade and you click on the dashboard icon. It will return to the dashboard.
    and your vm is listed in the dashboard.
    if you click on the vm icon again from the dashboard, it wont redirect to the vm blade,
    if you want to access the vm , then
    1 you have to click any other controls or links from the dashboard.
    2
    click the dashboard again
    3* click the vm icon, now you are on the vm blade.

    need to improve..,

  5. Dashboard: customize area with names

    Would help a great deal if I could create areas within one dashboard and apply a custom name to each area.

  7. Lock open the sidebar

    Having the main left hand sidebar menu automatically minimize to a row of unfamiliar icons is both irritating and unnecessary on a high resolution screen.

    Please provide the ability to lock open the sidebar in the new portal to show both icons and text.

  10. Delete dashboard with resource group

    When doing a lot of demos I create new dashboards per event, training etc. and usually I create resources in the same resource group and put them on that dashboard.
    It would be nice to have an option to tie a dashboard to a resource group so when deleting the resource group it would also delete the dashboard.

  11. Runbook invocation should show a drop-down for Parameters with a ValidateSet attribute attached.

    Currently runbooks with a ValidateSet will display a string input box with NO HELP as to what the intended value of the parameter should be, the only option for the user is to start the runbook and cry when it fails.

    I think the portal should be smart enough to show a drop-down menu of possible options.

  13. Add More Colors on the Azure Dashboard.make it a bit more vibrant

    Kindly add more colors to the Azure Dashboard. Make the Tiles more Lively with a bit of Animation while we hover on the tiles. Adding borders to different tiles as per the color chosen for the dashboard will make it more attractive and lively to work on.

    Thanks

  14. Create custom tiles

    Now we have the option to create custom dashboards with tiles organized by related resources or team, Allowing us to create CustomTiles to customize our dashboards will improve the dashboard experience.

    Our application use some administration pages to monitor application internal events like:
    Customer Registration, Customers Online, Notifications, etc.

    If we could provide a json file or fill a form with all configurations needed to render the tile like:
    Type: Standard(icon and name), Chart(donnut, bar, etc)
    Tile Title
    Icon: Icon Url
    DataSource: Url that return a series of data to fill a Chart or for example the number of connected…

  15. A dashboard template that can be applied to the same type of resources for instant dashboard generation

    The new dashboards are great. I typically use very similar layout for properties that use Application Insight (AI). These will have the various charts for exceptions, usage, failures, slow requests, etc. And it works great.

    But I have to create one for each AI resource that I want to track.

    Ideally, I would create a "template dashboard" that required the source for the needed types (an AI resource, a Storage resource, etc.). Once these values are plugged in, the dashboard lights up with the data from each of these resources.

    This would allow me to create a single dashboard template…

  16. Tie dashboards to user, not directory

    I manage multiple subscriptions across directories. When I log into Azure I want to see, at a glance:
    1) a dashboard where I can put production services from all directories I am part of, so I can see all systems' status info without opening multiple tabs
    2) a dashboard where I can put dev/test service info from an MSDN subscription in our organization's directory, right next to production service info from our client's directory

  17. Moving Resources between Resource Groups and other Subscriptions

    In the Move resources option there should be check boxes enabled for Select/Unselect all the resources that we are planning to move to other Subscriptions and Resource groups within same subscriptions.

  19. Copy/Template an instance of dashboard tile layout of services such as SQL Databases, VM's, App Services etc allowing to other instances

    When using the portal for monitoring purposes one would generally add a number of standard metrics to the dashboard of a service such as a SQL Database. More often than not you have multiple databases and would like all of these to have the same dashboard layout. It would be great to be able to create your dashboard of tiles on one instance service (in this case database) and then create a template which can then be applied to other instances of services (databases) that might be created in the future without having to go the instance of the service…
