  1. Dashboard not deleting deleted resources

    When I delete a reource group, it is not certain that the members of that resource group will be deleted from the dashboard. Even closing the window and opening a new portal does not necessarily remove all deleted objects.

    I'm using the Chrome browser on Windows 10.

  5. Allow users to control Azure Portal Dashboards expiration time and make dashboards usable

    Dashboards with it's current session expiration timeout are pretty much useless to be user as office dashboards and status monitoring. Most of the time session expires too soon and Office TVs show a "session expired, please refresh" message. Putting the tab with a dashboard on a cyclic refresh (e.g. "refresh this tab every 20 seconds") is not an option at all - new portal loading speed is horrendous, and the tab is cycled out from a view faster than it manages to display any useful diagrams or alerts.

    This was not an issue in the past and came only in…

  6. Graphical representation.

    Need to create visual graphical representation connectivity of the components created
    ex: Vnet is component in which subnet is sub component, in subnet we have VM's like wise.

  8. The only thing I have been torn about is rather to go with Limux or Win Insider 3Yr. 25 yr M/S I want to build a cloud based Sys & use VR

    I would like to use Windows but Imagine chances of success would be better with Linux Your cloud sys looks like the best I would like to use Virtual Reality for a browser. I am a retired Accountant B.S.B.A. The OSU as an Insider I have always been a bug hunter, some people play games I hunt bugs. I use Microsoft One Drive a lot & it can be secured if you do it right. I also like the finger print Hello as I believe it is the most secure of any Id. system. I actually meet Mr. Gates in…

  9. Enterprise Portal UI extension model

    EA portal is super important management portal for enterprise companies. But as of now- there is no way to retrieve information about departments and add custom information to objects.

    It will be great, to have some option to extend EA portal with custom UI... or REST API will also help, but it also don't exist https://feedback.azure.com/forums/34192--general-feedback/suggestions/32367562-publish-an-api-for-ea-portal(except of billingAPI, but it will not return an information about departaments)

  10. Improve the readability of placeholder text in the Azure Portal

    In the Azure Portal, when entering a filter in the Cosmos DB Data Explorer (Mongo DB settings), I can cannot read the placeholder text
    "Type a query predicate (e.g., {´a´:´foo´}), or choose one from the drop down list, or leave empty to query all documents." because it is too similar to the white background. Make it slightly more readable please.

  11. minimise icon for dashboard.

    There should be a minimise icon beside 'pin dashboard' and 'close dashboard' to minimise the dashboard. When we see overview of an app and also want to see others app present on dashboard , then in that case, we have to close the overview to see dashboards.

  12. Add labels to desktop

    Please could you add the ability to add labels to the desktop.

    Our desktop has many different graphs for different applications but we have to remember which graph is which. For instance, if you put 2 database graphs side by side, there is no way to know which one is which. If we could add labels to the desktop on the portal, we could use that to lay out different sections.

  13. Scrollable tiles

    Can we make tiles scrollable so that we can see all the resources? I'd like to pin a resource group and then scroll up and down to find the appropriate resource. Currently, if there are more resources than the tile can show, we can't get to the hidden resources without having to click into the tile.

  15. Refresh button on the Azure Dashboard for All Resources

    There is a refresh option for Resource Groups but not for All Resources. Can we have a refresh option for All Resources as well?

  16. Start a runbook from an Azure dashboard

    An Azure Automation runbook can be pinned to a dashboard, however it simply takes you to the full blade for the runbook. It would be good if it supported the ability to trigger the runbook (possibly with specified parameters) directly from the dashboard.

  17. Educate the Azure portal developers in basic UX principles

    I just went to try and create an Azure storage account and was confronted with the screen in the attached screenshot. Note the control in use for the fields "Deployment model", "Performance" and "Secure transfer required". Each of these fields requires the user to select one of two possible options. Standard web design provides two controls suitable for this purpose - the dropdown selection and the radio button. You have ignored these standard controls which have proven their utility over two and a half decades and instead created your own. And I can tell you immediately that yours sucks because…

  19. Simplified Azure dashboard

    The current Azure user dashboard is way too complicated to navigate and understand it.
    Even doing simple things is not really clear there.
    Only makes sense to use cli for now.

  20. How about defining the terms in the portal. Not everyone works for microsoft where you are allowed to make up your own language.

    Define the terms used in the portal so we know what an active directory is or even a virtual machine. What is a resource group, azure cosmos db, etc.
