  2. List of ALL the subscriptions associated to my User Login.

    Currently the portal shows in the "Subscriptions" section only the subscription associated to the Directory (AAD) that is selected by default. I have several subscriptions associated to several directories.

  3. Option to have Portal Notifications as Destop Notifications

    Option to have Notifications, like a successful deploy or failed deploy, as a desktop notification.

    This would allow you to leave the portal and do other tasks while waiting for e.g. a large deploy. When the deployment is done you will see the notification on the desktop, while having the portal web page open in the background.

  4. Limit what's visible in the portal based on RM policies

    Currently, the Azure portal shows all available resources and all available regions. It would be great if we can curate what's visible in the portal based ARM policies. For instance, if I have a policy that limits what regions I can provision my resources into, the portal should only show the allowable resources. Currently, the user won't know there's a restriction until they try to provision something outside of an allowable region. This causes user frustration, confusion, and most importantly, time.

    Other use cases:
    If I restrict access to only compute, networking, and storage service providers, those should be the…

  7. Ability to delete all unused resource groups in the new portal

    I have lots of unused resource groups from experimenting with different resources. Now, I need to delete them one by one which is a tedious process.

  8. Merge Resource Groups

    As an azure user I would like the ability to select two or more resource groups in the portal and select merge which would result in all the groups being consolidated into one. One of the selected resource groups would be selected as the "target" group and all other groups would be removed.

    This would be a faster version of the delete and consolidate option I've also posted.

  10. UI does not update on template creation

    When creating a template that creates a new resource group and a number of resources, the UI does not update to include all the resources in the group. The deployment status does not update with the steps completed or in-process. Hitting refresh on the blade of the resource group does show the created resources, not sure why it does not update on its own, which is the expected behavior. The deployment status is not udpdated until the browser itself is refreshed. The expected behavior is to update automatically or at least when the refresh button on the resource group blade…

  11. Option for deletion of related resources at time of deleting a resource

    When someone deletes a resource (say a VM) he/she may want to delete all the resources that are being used by this current resource (like NICs, Public IPs, VNETs for the VM). If there is an option like a checklist, listing all the related resources and the user can select which resources to delete along with, it can be a real hassle-free experience for the user.

  12. Ability to visualize your Azure engagement

    I have ended up managing many Azure resources (my own and customers') attached to many accounts (including my work and personal account that have the same email). I find it very difficult to get an overview of what engagement I have. What account do I use to manage that resource? What am I allowed to do here? What subscriptions do I have? What directory is connected to this account? I am also struggling with understanding the basic structure of Azure (admins roles, subscriptions etc). It would be helpful to get some kind of overview of my different engagements. Perhaps a…

  13. Save the command in the title to use custom commands (preview Portal)

    In the portal where you can use Commands you should be able to use your own predefined commands saved on a blob or somewhere else. this is good for reuse and not typing the same everytime.

  14. Show total number of resources in a given view

    As the number of resources grows the views inside the portal can become more complex and difficult to visually comprehend/manage/keep track off. One simple way to improve this would be to show the number of items in any given view. For example in the "Resource Group" blade at the top it would be good to show the number of resources groups there are. As this list grows it can stretch beyond the bottom of the screen and difficult to see how many there are. Showing the number is a quick way to see how many there are, but also to…

  15. UI for Resource Policy Management and Policy Aware for resource creation in portal

    Azure Resource Policy is a great feature for enterprise customers to enforce their resources in a compliant state. However, there is no user interface to view policy definitions and assignments in a given scope. Also, the UI don't respect policy at all but only give an error after the deployment is submitted.

  18. Add drag-and-drop support for moving Azure Resources

    It would be really cool, if a user could drag-and drop a Resource from one Resource Group into a different Resource Group. This is a very natural action that a user might perform with their mouse, and it would be great if it "just worked."

    Here is how I would envision the user workflow to occur:


    1. Open the Resource Group list blade

    2. Click on the source Resource Group, to open its blade

    3. In the list of Resources, click and drag a Resource (multi-select should also work)

    4. The Portal detects that you're trying to move a Resource(s), so it automatically scrolls…

  19. Add a short description ("info") for each resource

    For example: I don't know the difference between "Virtual Machines (classic)" & "Virtual Machines".

    I think a brief description next to the title could help me to understand what means each resource, even before creating one of them.

  20. Type in UI for changing resource group on a classic resource.

    When moving a resource from one resource group to another (classic resources) the UI prompts you to type 'Defau' to confirm. This seems like a typo.
