  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Support newer versions of Javascript in App Service Editor (monaco)

    javascript.validate.target only has ES3 and ES5 as valid options so when looking at es2015 javascript in the editor the linting complains about many things (which it thinks belong exclusively to Typescript).

    VS Code supports linting these newer language features, it would be nice if the App Service Editor did as well.

  8. sorting of Location by location not alphabetical

    If you search for a location you probably search for something in a special region, sometimes it's not avaliable, now it's hard to find a location nearby. Please change the sorting of the location select-box. Not alphabetical, rather by region.

    Or, the easy way, change the label fpr the locations, instead of "West Europe" name it "Europe - West". So this would sort all "Europe" locations in one place.

  11. 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. Review Template Deployment button

    On the Azure portal when using the template deployment I would like there to be a button to review what is about to be created.

    Once inputting the template and parameters, you should be able to click the review button, the UI will then go through the template and show you exactly what it will create, including the resources within copy.

    You should also be able to go through the template and see how variables have expanded.

    You could even highlight where things do not make sense, like linking NICs to VMs that do not exist

    This would help as…

  15. 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.

  16. Allow Azure Administrators to create Custom IAM Roles for more granular access control.

    The IAM system is great but I would love to have some more grnaular control. For example I would like a set of our QA users to be able to have Read access to all of our Application Insights resources.

  17. Add warning box when increasing instances.

    Please add a warning box and explanation when increasing or adding an instance to a web app. The technical staff nor the customer knows this and as a result customers get upset and overcharged.

  20. Alerts when you going to select a solution that have additional cost.

    It's a good practice from the user perspective, that you (Like Smart System) alert when you going to select a solution that have additional charges.
