  1. Resource Group Template parameter validation

    With so many different naming limitations between different object types, we need a way to validate parameters before submitting for deployment. An added bonus would be to allow us our own custom validation operations. Please note I am referring to parameter fields in the portal; not variables.

  2. Azure Portal status bar % complete

    An Azure portal status bar that displays % complete when doing such actions as backup, restore of database as a service instances. And also % complete when deploying a new VM. The in progress bar that runs in the current portal doesn't give any indication of how long it will take for the action to be performed. Only previous restores/backups for instance will you know roughly how long it will take.

  4. Allow group policy to be managed from Azure

    It should be possible to manage group policies from Azure.

    As per the comments at the bottom of this thread, it's not possible.

  5. Easier deployment and updating multiple apps in Intune

    I want to deploy the same applications (e.g. OneDrive) to multiple platforms - Android for Business, Android, and iOS. Currently, this requires creating, configuring, and assigning a separate application for each one. With many applications, this becomes very time consuming and pointless. I would like to see either a way to combine multiple "deployment types" for each platform into one application to assign to users, or at least a way to bulk assign these applications so updating group assignment is not so cumbersome.

  6. Toggle to disable deallocation of domain controller VMs in Azure Portal

    I'm mainly concerned about my domain controllers VMs. I would like to put the equivalent of a lock on these VMs to prevent them from being deallocated because if they are ever stopped through the Azure portal there are serious consequences such as those listed in this article: https://www.petri.com/best-practices-domain-controller-vms-azure

    For instance,
    The AD DS database is reset
    The RID pool is discarded
    SYSVOL is marked as non-authoritative

    We had an incident recently where both of my domain controller VMs had been deallocated for a short time after the domain had been created. This caused them to stop replicating the SYSVOL…

  8. App Service without IIS on Windows

    If an application does not use ASP.NET or IIS it's completely unclear how to run an application that simply listens to a port.

    Provide a mechanism to just specify a port using an environment variable and a way to start and stop it.

    No IIS handler monkey business.

    Managed SSL termination and HTTP/2 should work with the proposed solution.

  9. Need virtual KVM console to manage a VM outside of networking.

    Need virtual KVM console within the Azure portal to manage a VM outside of Networking\Rdp. It is very frustrating not being able to access a Virtual Machine unless it has networking. In Hyper V I use this feature all the time on VMs without networking.

  10. Generate bash commands for Azure CLI from Portal pages

    When creating deploying resources, or changing properties etc, before I apply or save my changes I'd like to be able to generate Azure CLI commands that could be executed in the bash shell.

    That way I can use the Azure portal UI if not familiar with the CLI commands then relatively easily build a script which is more repeatable.

    Something similar exists in SQL Server Management studio where every action in the GUI can be exported as a T-SQL script before the GUI action is actually applied.

  12. Allowing Pausing of a Subscription and Copying

    Would be nice to be able to suspend or pause a whole resource group or a subscription. So we can do advanced setups for projects and POC. For us we provide managed services for Internal and external companies, so would be beneficial to display Billing and Suspend the whole area for non payment or if the project not fully approved and funded. Also a cop feature of either resource group or Subscription.

    So Ideally For EA, Allow Clients to be able to create linked subscriptions, allow copy and pausing of the Whole subscriptions.

    I suppose could do the same with…

  13. Easier way to register new resource types

    A resource type (VM, Recovery Services, SQL database, etc.) must first be created once and registered in the subscription by a subscription admin. When using ARM with delegation these subscription level rights are not a given. Need an easier way to request this initial registration of a resource when somebody fails or before as part of a new request check, and the admin/owner be able to register this resource without having to actually deploy it once. Something of an approval workflow or a list of all available resources where I can just check the ones to be available and registered…

  14. Add Database/VM size on the right top of the performence metrics

    We rely mainly on the Azure dashboard for monitoring and It will be very useful for us to have database sizes on the metrics

  15. ExpressRoute billing button can allow downgrade to Metered rather than re-create the expressroute circuit

    The billing button at ExpressRoute only can upgrade to unlimited but not allow downgrade to metered, that make Microsoft billing to me a lot of money one month after while wrongly configuration and finally we need re-create the circuit

  16. VNET peering across tenants

  17. redirection in DNS

    Allow redirection of domains and sub-domains to another location. For domains which are just being camped and are not in active use it would be useful to be able to redirect traffic to these to another destination.

    Many DNS hosts offer a redirection service and/or a holding page which is not strictly DNS service but it is a useful extra when a domain is not an actual live destination.

  18. Rollback virtual machine

    During encryption of virtual machine, there was no ability to rollback unless you backup the disk, delete the virtual machine, create a new one with the same properties and import the disk. A simple button that performs this would be far more reliable/user friendly.

  19. MPN account owner versus Microsoft Action Pack Azure Subscription owner

    MPN accounts have to be created using a personal Microsoft ID as owner. But the MPN Microsoft Action Pack based Azure subscription must have a better process that requires granting Global Admin role to the first Azure AD account to be created using the domain name of the Partner Vendor Company setup by the MPN account owner. This should be done as an onboarding process for enabling the Azure subscription for the company domain name based user ID and not the MPN owner's personal Microsoft ID. It will avoid a lot of support calls and reprovisioning.

  20. Maybe display the price of a resource next to it while provisioning it through the portal!

    I have no clue while creating a resource group, how much it is going to cost and how much each item is adding to the cost. Some pricing policies have been revised so many times, that it is extremely difficult to maintain track. please make this easier!
