  1. Save / Set Column Width Settings & Sorting 'Defaults' Per Resource in Portal

    1) Basically, within the Portal add a 'save settings' button on resources (especially: VMs, NICs, Disks, Etc.) so that we do not have to keep re-formatting the view.

    2) This should save the sort-order and column-width adjusted, along with the current ability to save column changes (add/subs) and their (left to right) column ordering.

    3) There is the ability to sort some fields but no all - meaning some columns that are added cannot be sorted. It would be nice to be able to sort any column.

    Thank you.

  2. 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

  4. 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. Ability to view the Recent Resources for all Users

    Since activity logging does not show viewing of a resource, I need a different way to track who has opened up and viewed the details of a resource. The data is captured and stored as the "Recent Resources" list that is displayed upon login to the portal will show resources a user has viewed.
    I need to be able to track specific resource viewing for legal reasons and data loss prevention.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. Mind Map

    How about creating a Mind Map for the entire portal and other Azure services. This should be another option like the left-side menu bar.

  10. 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!

  11. can microsoft flow have recycle bin?

    It would be a good feature if https://emea.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/ has a recycle bin where the deleted flows reside.

  12. Azure Plan Subscription for end customers should include on their Usage Report more columns

    Azure Plan Subscription for end customers should include on their Usage Report more columns like meter category, meter subcategory, Meter ID, meter name for internal reporting.

    The problem is this reports are only available for Partners, however not for end customer. We need it to create internal reports.

  13. Implementing a primary deletion area like a trash when deleting resources in the Azure portal

    Currently, if you delete a resource using the GUI or command in the Azure portal, it will be deleted immediately. In the Windows OS, a temporary deletion area such as a trash can is set, and it is possible to recover files that were accidentally deleted. I want you to implement a temporary deletion area when deleting from the Azure portal.

  14. Ability to recover or rename deleted departments in ea.azure.com

    Current Situation:
    Consider that in ea.azure.com you are managing an enrollment organizing it with departments. You accidentally deleted the wrong department.
    Now there is no way do recover the deleted department. Further more you are even no longer able to create a new department with the same name. Even opening a ticket within Microsoft Support (200K€+ unified support contract) just resulted in "Please give your new department another name".

    Proposed Solution(s):
    - Provide us with the ability to recover the deleted departments.
    - Provide us with the ability to at least rename deleted departments or automatically rename them to DELETED

  15. Add Danish as regional format in Azure portal settings

    The regional format in the portal settings do not support Danish, it's a struggle when most of danish users are not using AM-PM but 24-hour clock.

  16. Provide an admin-controlled message banner in the portal

    Azure DevOps allows org admins to display a message banner (info, warning, error) at the top of all their org pages, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-ca/cli/azure/ext/azure-devops/devops/admin/banner.

    Please add a similar feature to the Azure management portal.

  17. Portal Notifications: Change default from "Dismiss All" to "Dismiss Completed" and close

    Most situations we just want do "Dismiss Completed", not anything pending. This forces going to the dropdown and in many cases accidentally "Dismiss All".
    Also, the pane should close automatically once you dismiss things.
    I suggest either the above changes or configurations options to achieve the same functionality.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  18. [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")

  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.

  20. 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.
