  1. Ability to sort by time

    Hi

    I think it would be very useful to have the ability to sort the All Resources section by time created / last used etc

  2. Add LOCKS to the Column to the List

    Add the LOCKS field to the Column lists so I can add that view to my virtual machines view. I have 100 Virtual machines and there isn't a quick view I can use to see which VMs are protected and which VMs are not, I have to open each VM and look at locks, or I have to name each lock different so I can figure out which one is protected.

  6. Unpinning from dashboard doesn't reset view

    When you right click and unpin from the dashboard, it'll reset your view by panning your browser to the farthest left. So if you have many things to unpin to the far right side of the dashboard (scrolling right), you'll have to re-scroll to the right every time you unpin. Ideally the browser view should stay in-place when you unpin

  7. Bring back simplicity of VM wizard menus

    The new portal is great for showing what's going on with our VMs, however, every time I want to configure it, it seems like the process is either x10 or x100 times harder.

    In the classic portal, setting up endpoints was easy. Now? No idea!

    As a software engineer who just wants VMs up and running in no time, the classical Azure portal made life easy. Please bring these configuration features back.

    I understand that server engineers will love the scripting part of it, but the vast majority of us don't fit into this speciality.

  8. Visual state (running/stopped) when a VM tile is 1x1

    It would be great if I could resize my VM tiles to 1x1, but still be able to check what VMs are running or stopped from there. Maybe changing the icon color to light gray when stoped, and blue when running

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. No option to auto arrange tiles?

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

  15. 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…

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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?

  19. 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).
