    • 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.

      • 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 :)

        • 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.

          • add Clippy personal assistant to the Azure Portal

            A personal assistance would be great within the Azure Portal. Perhaps, clippy should be brought back and added to the Azure Portal to help us manage our cloud resources even easier. Maybe you could also rename Cortana to Clippy and give it a happier more helpful voice and personality as well.

            • Recycle bin for accidentally deleted azure resources

              It would good if we could have ability to restore accidentally deleted resources from Azure Portal. Feature like recycle bin could really help user to restore accidentally deleted resources from azure.

              • High CPU usage in IE11

                When using the new preview Portal IE11 running on Windows 8.1 Shows quite high cpu usage after some time. Up to 30% on an Intel i5-2410M. This should be fixed.

                • Manage which subscriptions/directories to show in the Directory list

                  I have way too many subscriptions/directories, including old ones that are no longer active (they have been deleted) and others I don't have access to anything. For the life of me I have tried everything to get the out of the list that comes up when I click on my user on the top right.

                  Please automatically filter those subscriptions/directories by enabled (bonus points for filtering when I have no access to anything) or allow me to filter them myself

                  • change password length

                    Modify the Change Password page maximum allowed characters length: https://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/changepassword.aspx

                    Currently the above Change Password page only allows for a max of 16 characters however, when a user's password expires, the update password page allows for more than 16 characters.

                    • EA Portal - Enable Conditional Based Access

                      We have enabled Conditional Based Access on the "Microsoft Azure Management" application in Azure AD. We are using this to enforce Multi-Factor Authentication on all logins to the Azure Portal.

                      This applies to the new & classic azure portals, but not the EA portal.

                      We should also be able to protect the EA Portal (https://ea.azure.com) with MFA.

                      Can this either be included in the "Microsoft Azure Management" application defined in Azure AD? Or alternatively another Cloud App should be defined in Azure AD for the EA Portal.

                        I'd like to use the new Azure icons in a diagram but only the old classic portal icons are available for download. Please provide them in SVG format (at least).

                          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.

                          • monitor export

                            We can see some metrics from Monitor Service.
                            But it doesn't have a export UI on Azure Portal against Metrics.(Activity log has export UI.)
                            Exporting these metrics is usefull for point of customer side system monitoring.

                            • Lower the price of AD B2C

                              The price for AD B2C seems way to high. We would like to use AD B2C for a mobile app but just with 1,000,000 users the price is way out of bounds just to store a user, not to mention adding authentications (users x 20-30 for a given month) or god forbid 3-way auth. If B2C is truly for actual B2C purposes the price must drop.

                              • Free 1 month trail subscription increase the duration and take some nominal amount.

                                My idea is about free subscription which you are giving for one month-my suggestion is to increase the duration of this trail , as azure is a wide area,and people need more time to explore it ,take some nominal amount and put some terms and conditions but provide it at least for 3 months or 6 ,it will really help new user.

                                • 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,…

                                  • Shortcuts

                                    Shortcuts navigation tip: Some of the current shortcuts are very problematic. Example: Switch Tasks (A), Show Dashboard (D), etc. Whenever you open a Blade that has a focus on an input box (like adding or searching resources), you can't use a single character shortcuts. Perhaps those global ones should be used with a CTRL key?

                                    • Provide ability to Start and Stop SQLServer database

                                      Provide ability to Start and Stop SQL Server database. During the time of development the SQL Server database no need to up and running all the time 24*7. Providing this option will save monthly billing cost.

                                      • Extend Send Invoices By Email to work for Support subscriptions

                                        The new Send My Invoices by email feature will (if it works as billed) save us time each month. However it does not work for my Professional Support subscription, as that subscription is not accessible via the portal (I can see it listed under billing, but cannot select it). As it stands, the Send My Invoices feature will do two-thirds of the work, but I'll still have to login to that awful account.windowsazure.com site to download the 3rd invoice each month for my support subscription ... why can't this be available via the Portal?

                                        • Specify internal IP address during creating VM on Azure Portal

                                          We cannot specify internal IP address during creating VM on Azure Portal, so it's required to specify IP address after VM creation. We want to specify internal IP address during creating VM on Azure Portal.
