    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

  3. Really important PREVIEW items

    IT would be really useful to have a POP up message or an ATTENTION MARK with more details whenever someone wants to create a resource in Azure which is in PREVIEW --> lots of people are creating preview items for production which should not be the case!
    thank you!

  4. Allow the template to be downloaded from the portal even if validation or policy fails

    Currently, when creating a resource in the portal, if template validation fails (for example, due to an Azure Policy Deny rule, or lack of permissions to a related resource), the link to download the template is not provided. Teams who do not have a mature CI/CD pipeline will often use the portal to generate a basic template that they can use. Validation/Policy errors should not block the ability to download said template, especially considering that the user may know what the fix is and need to make that fix within the template itself because there's no way to do it…

  6. Common naming standards

    Why does every resource the has separate naming standards?
    Some allow hyphens, others allow underscores, while some other allowed none. Some need to be in lowercase only, while others allow mixed case.

    My suggestion is to allow standard naming standards for all resources.

    Preferably mixed case, with hyphens, and standard name length.

  9. Use my context for create actions

    When im in a resource group and click new something there is a really good chance i want to create that new thing in the subscription and resource group that im currently in. Why does the portal default to some other subscription and RG. When im done creating a new object in a resource group why does it take me out of that resource group and go back to the home page? I would save so much time is the portal would respect the context i already set by navigating to a location.

  11. Ability to change Azure RM Template deployment name (Microsoft.Template)

    Add Ability to change Azure RM Template deployment name (Microsoft.Template) when deploying through Azure Portal link.

    This is not possible today. If a deployment is in progress, we increment the count to Microsoft.Template_n. If a deployment has completed, we reuse the Microsoft.Template deployment name.

    Can we get the ability to change deployment name if completed so it is not overritten/reused when we deploy another ARM template in the same RG?

  12. 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

  17. Ability to see ALL Settings to be Applied When Swapping Deployment Slots

    It doesn't seem like there is any way to know which settings will be applied when swapping deployment sites in Azure and which settings will not. There is currently a message that appears before the swap occurs which outlines warnings and errors, informing you of some settings that will be changed, but not all.

    The exact setting that caused a lot of pain for me was CORS. I had no idea it was being applied when I was swapping. It would have been nice to see that in the informative messages.

  18. Set Up Azure for a Small Business (5 employees), with a Virtual File Server

    Set up Azure for a small business with 5 employees. The five employees (users) should be able to login from a computer anywhere and access the company files by mapping a network drive on the local machine to the Azure file server. Each user should also have a folder mapped to their local machine that is private to them (the other users cannot see the contents of the folder. The connection must be secured, based on modern best practices.

  19. 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.
