  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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…

  4. Don't recommend pricing tier

    When I am creating a new VM or web app, the Azure Portal always recommends different tiers, but what tier I need really depends on what I am doing, making the recommendations useless. Consider removing. It just creates an extra click every time.

  6. Use the allowed values from policy as location options for creating resources/resourcegroups

    When a policy like "Allowed locations" is implemented, the allowed values of the policy should be used as location options when you create a resource(group). Currently, you can select any location, and you'll find out that creation will fill after filling in all the details. Implementing this would save a lot of time

  7. 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.

  8. VM Selection Filter that shows the VMs with Accelerated Networking.

    For the workloads I am working with, almost all of them require Accelerated Networking. There is no easy way to find this unless you select an VM that does not via script and then parse the error message. Allowing this via the portal would make this so much easier.

  9. Portal VM size/type selection layout slow to use (just awful)

    If you create a new VM in Azure, then you have to choose a VM type.
    By default it shows you 3 "recommended" VM types.
    I have never ever used these types. As we mostly use VMs with more than 2 cores. So I have to switch the layout to "View all" every time.
    And then you have to scroll through 10 pages of VMs....
    If have pre-choosen the VM type you want to use, it still takes a lot of time to find that specific VM.

    But if you have not yet decided which VM you want to use,…

  10. Drag and Drop solution design

    When building solutions, it would be more efficient if we could drag and drop various resources and configure from the 'map'. Similar to the dashboard edit but with the feel of Visio or mind mapping software. For example, Drap VirtualNetwork icon, # of subnets to host to it (autolink), drag load balancer to one subnet, couple of VMs. Click on icons, configure.

  11. 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.

  12. still very complex to understand how to locate each & every service. AWS Dashboard is much easier to understand & configure.

    still very complex to understand how to locate each & every service. AWS Dashboard is much easier to understand & configure. If its possible also make sure that some videos is also included for major services so that any new user can understand how o configure.

  13. Add cost estimation on a last step before provision any service in azure

    Now we have multi step wizard for provisioning any service. on a last screen we will see- the parameters and portal will do some validation for us.
    Please- add the cost estimation on this last screen. Because it's so simple to make a mistake that will be super expensive.

  15. Inherit region from parent

    When creating a new resource, the region defaults to South Central US; so requires changing on every new resource added.
    Better would be for this value to default to the same region as the resource's parent; so allow a default region to be set for a subscription (https://feedback.azure.com/forums/223579-azure-portal/suggestions/6715615-when-selecting-a-location-how-to-save-as-default) and have all resource groups under that sub default to that value. Then have any resources created in the resource group default to that resource group's region. This should lower the effort of setting up a new environment with no negative side effects.
