  1. Allow selecting subscriptions by IDs when creating new Azure resources

    It would be nice to be able to select subscriptions by ID when creating new resources, even when the dropdown only shows subscription display names. We typically track subscriptions by IDs and not names in our team docs.

  2. Make "The Submit an Idea" more visible.

    Make "The Submit an Idea" more visible. Its a very good idea however its hidden and most people will not know its available or find it.

  3. Provide support for portal.azure.com

    When something seems to be broken in the Azure portal itself (https://portal.azure.com), there is no avenue to get support from Microsoft.
    If Microsoft expects customers to use https://portal.azure.com to manage resources they are already paying for, Microsoft should provide support for https://portal.azure.com withing requiring an additional paid support plan. Paying for Azure resources should include support for https://portal.azure.com.

  4. All Services

    Small beans but when I click "All Services", it would be great is there was a button to de-selected all selected items.

  5. Add an option in Teams for the option to pop out a chat like there is in Skype.

    When holding a chat with an individual, and switching back to a channel, the experience is a little clunky. Would be helpful if the chat could be popped out into a separate window.

  6. Max NICs supported on VM size

    In the portal where user selects a VM size from a list, we could use a new filter or a column to show the max number of NICs supported for that VM.

  7. Customizable Blade for integration of own services

    It would be great if there is an option to integrate own services in the Azure Portal.

    Lets think about automation webhooks or 3rd party itsm tool or other rest calls hooked into azure portal, so that an user ist not in the need to change the portal.
    So we will be able to place buttons for automation tasks, reports, order forms or similar.

    Without that, users have to switch to other portals and leave azure for management tasks and come back for administration tasks. Or they have to build the administration tasks in other tools and not use azure…

  8. Automatically set the inquiry language based on the language set in Azure Portal.

    "English" is the default when registering a support request
    Please set user's language as default.

  9. Rename regions to country/city names

    Currently some regions are named by country names, and some are continent names. It causes confusion to users. It would be clear if all the region names are aligned to country or city names, for example:

    East Asia -> Hongkong, China
    Southeast Asia -> Singapore

  11. Make Help-Center of Azure Portal work!!!

    It is insane that Microsoft created the portal for communication with the customers, and this point of contact does not work.

    As the Azure expert did a great job and has provided a proper solution with print-screens - we should be able to see them.

    Analysis:
    The MS Expert had use an email to respond (guess: the tickets are delivered via email?), where he could use rich-text or HTML email formatting. The portal displays pure TEXT so no attachments are available.

    This is to put it nicely - LAME - as it is a Microsoft who has delivered this non-functioning…

  12. make dropdown menus and allow us to select keys and addresses instead of having us use a notepad to keep track of what we made.

    I have to keep a notepad to keep track of my connection strings and keys. It's very confusing sometimes to figure out what to fill in text fields. It would be great to have a meaningful contextual name or the string itself prepopulated in a dropdown or searchable dropdown menu to pick from instead.

  13. 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

  15. Help + support - All support requests - Disable preloading

    In the All support requests screen, it tries to load just the open tickets before any criteria is set, this is causing a huge delay to quickly track an Azure ticket's status, have to wait until all is loaded.

    Suggestion:

    Do not allow to pre-load all, instead provide an option to first set one of the criteria's and then load based on the criterias set.

    In the Azure Updates page, there should be an option to select multiple category tags. At the moment it requires %2C in the URI category parameter to concatenate the categories together.

    Alternatively provide a different taxonomy dictionary that groups by parent product group - eg Azure Networking, or Azure Identity rather than discrete product categories.

    This would also allow for RSS feeds to hit respective customer audiences that have a discipline in a field (networking, security, identity, etc..) - reduce the white noise and allow them to focus on updates that are relevant to them

  17. 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…

  19. 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.?

  20. 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
