    • 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…

      • 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.

        • 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 :)

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • Migrate VMs with managed disks between subscriptions via Portal NOT powershell !!!

                Create VM, by default is managed disk. It is a feature needed to migrate VM with managed disk to another RG or another subscription, it is a needed feature for Azure EA customer, which needs migrate VM to new naming convention RG or subscription. How about the roadmap?

                • 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                  I have way too many subscriptions/directories, including old ones that are no longer active (they have been deleted) and others I don't have access to anything.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

                  • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Make dialog boxes and blades resizeable or large enough

                          As far as I can remember, that has always been a painful problem with Microsoft products..
                          Blades, modal dialog boxes and so on are always dramaticaly small sized.
                          Wake up guys, it is painful for all of us...
                          It's completely incompréhensible for a 2014 html 5 website.

                          Please, make it auto-sizeable au manualy resizeable.

                          Regards,
                          C.G.

                          • Add HTTP 2.0 support for the Microsoft Azure Portal

                            Please add HTTP 2.0 support for the Microsoft Azure Ibiza Portal. It is my understanding that a proper implementation could naturally help to improve performance, by reducing the number of disparate HTTP connections made to the REST API

                              • Ability to remove your self from Subscriptions and Directories

                                As a consultant I use a single account to access client Azure subscriptions, Sometimes the client forgets to remove me from there subscription or Directory. Therefore being able to remove yourself would be a useful feature.

                                • merge personal and work/school accounts (fix identity management)

                                  The distinction between work and personal identities (with potentially the same e-mail address) is terribly confusing. If possible they should be merged, or not be allowed to create separate identities with the same email address.

                                  I've spent hours with MS support why in some cases personal accounts can't be added to an Azure AD tenant (he also had no idea what was going on) on why 'Viral Tenants' are created instead of personal accounts, why work/school tenants can't be added as users to visualstudio.com and why the 'new' Azure portal doesn't give the option to add a personal account.

                                  Stop…

                                  • 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.

                                      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?

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
