  1. 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…

  3. It would be really nice if the old (far better) portal usability could be retained.

    It just took me 20 minutes (and about 30 Google searches) to find the Create VM from Image functionality. It moved, and there is no hint at where it went.

  4. No option to auto arrange tiles?

    Why not provide a button to auto arrange tiles? Sort them based on name, creation date, etc.

  5. 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…

  6. Status monitoring for multiple Azure resources

    I should be able to build custom dashboard which can show following status for selected Azure resources within or across subscriptions.


    1. Availability of each resource from 3 different geo locations

    2. Critical security center recommendations if any

    3. Perf recommendations if any

    4. Planned downtime notice with days to go

    5. Custom (e.g. monitor service from windows VM)

    Currently I have specific requirement to monitor following set of Azure resources as our each instance of our product deployment consists of
    1. Cloud Service Classic
    2. IaaS Vms
    2. Azure SQL DB
    3. Vnet
    4. TM
    5. Azure Storage
    6. Service Bus

  7. 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

  8. Add item to Left side menu called "Dashboard"

    When I pin items to the dashboard I don't see them anywhere. Where is this mystical dashboard anyway?

  9. Action buttons take too much space

    The "Add", "Columns", "Refresh", etc buttons at the top of the blades eat a lot of vertical real estate considering how often one needs to press it.

    Consider a smaller band that expands upon mouse hover... (or putting them next to the blade title).

  12. allow multiple sources for a graph on the dashboard

    Currently for example you can only have data on a graph regarding one thing such as "Website" but you can add multiple different bits of information, such as data in, data out and request but as soon as you mix types e.g counts and Data the axis become unreadable.

    If you could join a graph across multiple websites (or similar objects) then you could have one graph with multiple lines on it all related to the request count for different websites you currently own. This would mean less graphs needed to display the same data on the dashboard and would…

  13. Dashboard editing - versioning - undo

    Implement Dashboard versioning. It is so easy to delete something on the dashboard when you are customising it. With the new sharing feature I can see more people able to customise it. Would be great to have a version control to track who did the modifications and also to rollback if needed. Worth case would be an undo feature when you edit and remove something by mistake. At the moment the only option available when you update a dashboard is 'Done Customising'

  14. Dashboard - Adding Calender Option

  18. 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…

  19. More available layouts for tiles on the Dashboard

    Allow for a 1x2, 1x4, etc. tile setup. I cannot currently even get back to the original layout of the Resources tile.

  20. An undo feature for the dashboard

    Today I made an unintentional change to the size of my resources tile on the dashboard. Despite closing the browser window without hitting the Done button, the change remains.

    Though I attempted to re-pin the resources item to the dashboard it remains in the smaller size.
