  1. Make Monitor - metric alerts and and other quotas visible in the portal

    Currently there doesn't seem to be a way of
    viewing usage of metric alerts and many other resources limited by quotas https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-subscription-service-limits#monitor-limits. Why not make all quotas visible on the Usage + quotas blade for a subscription

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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

    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

  10. 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.

  11. Automatic mitigation policy based on risk type, not just severity

    Azure AD Identity Protection reports risks for my users and allows me to set policies based on severity, but not type. I'd like to treat "Impossible travel to atypical locations" differently than "Signins from unfamiliar locations" or "Signins from anonymous IPs" with an automatic mitigation policy, but I can't because those are all considered medium risk.

  12. How to import comma delimited text file (FAQ Questions & Answers) in to SQL Database

    I'm creating a FAQ bot and wanted to use the answers which are stored in our production database. So I exported the database records into a comma delimited text file. Then I wanted to import this text file into the SQL Database so the bot can refer to the rows of data there for the answers.

  13. Show permissions required in error messages and for grayed out items

    Currently it is very difficult to figure out what roles are required for specific admin functions. For example, the Active Directory add app registration button is clickable. When I enter the new information for an app, it tells me that I don't have permission to do this, but I have no idea how to request the permissions I need.

    It would be great if the error message lists the role required to perform this function. Or better yet, a button that says "Request Permission" with an automatic email to the persons who can grant permission and an optional message for…

  14. Free Trail

    Free trail for 30 days is not allowing people to practice properly. It would be better to have multiple times for 30 days. let people start from scratch every 30 days. So, they can only use it for practicing not for actual project stuff. ONLY ONE TIME is not good at all.

  15. Microsoft Linux with GUI

    I have been using Azure recently and have seen great strides towards innovation. My wish today is for Microsoft to launch a Microsoft and gradually introduce the GUI of windows into the Linux. I think a MS Linux that works like/close to Windows 10 will be the differentiator for developers such as me to use AWS and Azure more frequently. Currently learning to use App Center more.

  20. RSS Feed Updates for Visual Changes in the Portal

    Can visual changes made to existing blades in the Azure Portal be notified via the Azure Updates RSS feed?

    Recovery Services Vaults was visually updated a couple of weeks back with no mention and Storage Account deployment via the Marketplace was updated earlier this week with no mention.
    A while back the VM sizes table was updated with no mention anywhere beforehand or afterwards.

    The last thing people want is to see a new interface when they need to perform a critical task, like use ASR for failover.
