  2. Improve Portal Performance

    The Azure Portal performance is horribly slow! The blades take too much time to load and keep moving back and forward while loading. Switching from one "Blade Flow" to another take about half a minute of loading time.

    I know there is already an issue similar to this in this User Voice, however someone from Microsoft marked the task as Completed. Clearly this is not completed or fixed. Our whole company is adopting Microsoft Azure and this is the number one complaint that I have. I can also help replicate it if need be, but I am sure it is…

    Hey,

    This is something we’re still actively working on. It has a been a big area of investment and it still is moving forward. We keep investing in performance, both from a client and server side perspective.

    We have a few things coming in the near future which should help address some of the initial UI performance issues. We’re also heavily engaged with all of our partners driving a broad effort to improve performance across the portal for all experiences.

    If you have any specific areas which are causing pain please feel free to reach out to me or comment and state if we can contact you, it would be great to understand the common pain points.

    Cheers,
    Sean.

  3. Allow us to set the date format on the portal.

    Allow us to change the date format. Since not everybody in the world likes using US dates :)

  4. Reduce the browser memory footprint, and elimnate the memory leaks.

    There seem to be some rather significant memory leaks in the Portal Dashboard. I've made the mistake of leaving it running overnight a few times, and the browser process working memory use, with the portal being the only browser tab open is often in excess of 1.5 GB. This is with no tiles open. In a few cases, I could not unlock the computer and had to reach across the network to kill the iexplore.exe process before I could gain local access.

  6. enable the "Support Request Contributor" role to be scope at the resource group level for opening premier tickets.

    Currently we are operating in a shared subscription model where each app team is assigned specific resource group(s) and their access is scoped at this level. For them to open premier tickets from ARM, they have to be added as Support Request Contributor at the subscription level.
    This enables visibility to all resource groups in the subscription and impacts the experience of the user. The complaints I have received are "Now I have to search for my resource group" and "I thought we had our own subscription"

    The concept of resource groups is great but loses value when users have…

  7. Edit backup policy

    I suggest that the interface allow the editing of backup policies avoiding the need to create new policy when the need to reset period and retention.

  8. Custom info in Help

    We are a large enterprise customer utilizing Azure and have some internal teams to help manage Azure as well as support agreements with Microsoft for support (including Azure and Azure development).

    It would be a neat feature in the portal, in the Help area, to be able to customize some text for our own help. For example, I could see us customizing contact info for the EA admin(s), contact info for internal and external (MS) support, links to corporate SharePoint sites with Azure info and other project pages specific, governance/usage info, and billing info. I could see this information set…

  9. More color options for portal

    I think it's great for me to switch colors between subscriptions as I have been added to some customer subscriptions so I can set different set of colors based on which subscription is being used.

    Currently you offer only 4 different schemes - there should be a lot more plus an option to customize (if I want a pink theme, please let me have it - with unicorns :)) This would be a great visual differentiator between subscriptions as I need to switch between them all the time just to remind me what I'm working with (e.g. green = development,…

  10. Allow Incremental Deployment of ARM templates

    When deploying a template via URI (http://portal.azure.com/#create/Microsoft.Template.....), allow through a parameter or other mechanism the ability to deploy in either Complete or Incremental mode. It appears as though it only wants to do Complete.

    This is an issue in that you cannot put a storage account in a template with a server build, where you intend multiple servers to utilize the same storage. The second, and subsequent, builds fail validation through the portal saying that the storage already exists. When run via powershell, it deploys fine.

  11. Add Norwegian as regional format in portal settings

    Today the Azure portal has support for 3 different Swedish Regional formats (Svenska) but none for Norwegian.

    I'm Norwegian and it's frustrating that I can't select a Norwegian regional format in the portal settings. I'm currently using English which has the same date format, but not the same 24-hour clock, so I have to struggle with AM-PM all day long in AppInsights etc.

  12. Ability to Copy/Clone a resource.

    Ex: If i have to create multiple VMs with same configuration, I need to follow the same set of action multiple times. Instead if an option to clone an existing resource is available it will be helpful

  14. Delegate clearing Azure MFA options to other roles not Global Administrators

    Why not allow global administrators to delegate access to manage/clear Azure MFA options on users (or group of specific users) to another role, e.g. User Account Administrator, or Helpdesk Administrator, etc.?

  15. Hide Email in Upper Right

    To help comply with anti-doxxing patterns, it would be nice to have the option to hide email in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

    I'm recording/streaming coding content and wish to show some Azure work without giving away my email. Options like "Name only", "Name and Email", or "Email only" would save me a lot of effort

  17. [Translation feedback] meaning between "purge" and "delete" on Azure CDN in Japanese is confusing

    In Japanese portal, meaning between "purge" and "delete" on Azure CDN is confusing.
    "purge" is displayed as "消去", which means "erase" in Japanese and is for being used when a user wants to clear caches left on edge-nodes.

    "delete" is displayed as "削除", which means "remove", "delete" in Japanese, which is for deleting Azure CDN resource itself.

    To users, it is confusing and might mistakenly execute "remove" when a user wants to purge caches on edge-nodes.

    I'd like to change the name of purge to a little bit more appropriate title (e.g., "パージ" or "キャッシュクリア")

  18. Azure Portal Templates should be renamed Azure Portal Template Library

    Azure Portal Templates should be renamed to Azure Portal Template Library (or something) so that Bing/Google searching can return information on it - Searching for Azure Templates yeilds *way* to many results!

  19. Azure Portal Templates should be backed by a Git Repo

    Azure Portal Templates should be backed by a Git/AzDO repo with support for labels and branching.

    Having Templates without version history makes working in a modern auditing environment challenging.

    Currently, we have our templates in a Git repo, then cut and paste them to the Azure Portal for deployment. This exposes us to audit issues when we cannot trace back who made changes to our IoC and forces us to use third party solutions rather than Azure Portal Templates.
