  1. 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

  2. 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.?

  5. Portal.Office.com - Switch Directory on the fly for B2B users (Like Portal.Azure.com)

    The directory switch for Portal.Azure.com is great please add same function for Portal.Office.com

    This will make things much less confusing for people who are in multiple tenants!

  8. 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 folks,

    It’s been a while since I’ve updated this space.

    Performance is a high priority for all new and existing feature in the Azure Portal, and we’re constantly assessing all experiences to ensure they meet your expectations.

    If anyone experiences any specific Portal performance issues please feel free to open new items, reach out to myself directly (sewatson@microsoft.com), or leave comments for those scenarios. We’d happily investigate them further.

    Cheers,
    Sean.

  9. 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. Choose the API version in Resource Explorer

    Resource Explorer in azure portal often uses older API versions than are listed for the providers. Implement a dropdown-box for die right-side window with all available API versions for this specific REST endpoint.

  12. Extend Azure AD sign in logs retention period or build capabilities to easily roll them over

    Currently Azure AD sign in logs are kept for only 30 days. Is there a way to extend this retention period or a capability to rollover these logs via some settings on the portal?

  13. Allow rename of network interface resources

    When creating a VM in the Azure Portal using the ARM deployment model, the network interface is labeled with the hostname + a 5 digit random? number.

    I haven’t found a way to change this in the Portal.

    In case a customer would prefer to use their own naming convention for interface resources, like <hostname>-ifc, can we consider adding this option to the Azure Portal?

    I realize there is likely a way to do this already with ARM templates and PowerShell based deployments, but having this feature also available in the GUI would provide some added flexibility for new customers…

  14. 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.

  16. 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,…

  17. The Language translation bar should put on top of the page.

    As many of the individuals are seeking local language pages, people don't know the button exists, which would be better on the top banner, so people can know it and convert it into their home language right away.

  18. 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 :)

  19. get source assignment of a policy

    In the Azure policy blade, it would be nice to have a column showing the assignment source of the policy (and maybe also the management group, if any): if the source is an assigned or unassigned blueprint, then we should be able to follow the link directly (in the portal). If the blueprint was deleted, it should be mentioned as such.
