  1. I would like to see a feature in the portal that lets a user create a topology map of their Azure Portal environment(s)

    Have a feature whereby a user can go to a page and from this page select one or more options such as "Show me my services topology" which would then draw a vector diagram (like what you get on draw.io or Visio) and this would allow anyone to visualise the various levels of their growing Azure Portal solution.

    I would start with resource groups, services, apps, infrastructure (like networking, "All SQL Servers"...).

    A visual representation of the fit-and-finish of what is in place (would save Solution Architects a headache haha).

    Thank you.

  2. Add automatic refresh for Application Insights queries (tables) pinned to Azure Dashboard

    According to Microsoft documentation there is automatic refresh for charts pinned to Azure Dashboard.

    But there is no any automatic update applied for the table, moreover refresh button on the tile work only first time when you click on it.

    It would be a lot more useful to have automatic refresh for all AI queries, doesn't matter of displaying format.

  3. Dashboard auto refresh

    Azure dashboards that are based on custom metrics should auto refresh the data. Currently, even a browser refresh does not reload the data, only manual refresh of each single panel. This creates a situation in the dashboard where different panels show different time frames

  4. Unsaved changes to a dashboard blocks basic features

    When using a shared dashboard and just testing changes/and or just wanting to change the timespan temporarily, the dashboard says there are unpublished changes and this blocks MANY features, like being able to make further edits, full screen, SEARCH, etc. There is no reason for a change to block so many features, especially if I want the change just locally for a short time.

  5. dashboard

    Create a dashboard tile that can show a policy compliance score for a given resource group. Score please, not tumbnail image.

  6. Allow me to select my default dashboard---or at least save the last one used

    Every time I log in, it keeps going to some generic empty dashboard now after making the apparent-in-hindsight mistake of making my own public. No amount of cloning, un-publicizing, etc gets me my old default dashboard back again, and there is no way to copy the contents of the dashboard I WANT into the empty one that I keep logging into.

    So, please make a way for us to set our default dashboard, or at the very least save the last dashboard used and default to that.

  8. Feature to display timespan on the tile where it differs from the dashboard

    FIrstly now that the timespan for individual tiles can be customised, this needs to be displayed (or available for display) on the tile.
    And where the timespan of the tile does differ from the dashboard, it should be displayed.

  9. Dashboard time/timezone

    I want to make a suggestion for the Azure dashboard feature.

    I generally like this feature and it is very useful for me but there is a suggestion regarding UI which can be improved.

    The time/timezone feature can be aligned with the other buttons Fullscreen, Clone, Delete like on the picture.

    This modification can provide even much more space on the dashboard so the customers can put more pieces of information.

    Thanks

  10. Update Analytics charts to work as smoothly as metrics charts

    Currently I have several dashboards that use Analytics charts, however they don't update with the time interval like metrics charts and they don't show the same point in time where you mouse is at like metrics charts do. And while I would love to switch to metrics, it simply does not have the ability to handle some of the operations I'm doing with Analytics, or easily add 16+ app insights resources to 10 different charts each.

  11. refresh

    Only the tiles that are generated by Application insights get auto refreshed properly. Charts created manually in the Logs are not able to be auto- refreshed, having a refresh button on the tile instead. Any one can help with this please?

  13. Allow custom names for times in Portal clocks

    Rather than having the tile state "Central Standar..." I would like to be able to enter a custom name like "Chicago"

  14. Honor the Dark color theme setting across all Azure pages

    Some Azure pages expose a theme setting (e.g., Light, Dark), which is great. But when using the Dark theme, many Azure pages use a Light theme instead. (E.g., this feedback page and even the Azure search page don't honor the Dark theme.) This creates a visually straining, high-contrast experience that is the opposite of what the Dark theme is typically trying to achieve.

  17. Dashboard Input Fields

    I would like to be able to add input fields to dashboards that can be applied to the charts. A basic input field may be a dropdown (ideally dynamic). For instance, if I had a chart showing CPU% for a specific VM then I would like to be able to switch to a different VM through a dropdown field. Similar to how Splunk has implemented this feature. https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Viz/Buildandeditforms

  18. Auto refreshing tiles

    Instead of having a button to refresh everything. It would be alot more useful if the tiles would just update with the latest info on its own.

  20. Fullscreen Query String Option on Dashboards

    Allow a query string option for invoking full screen on a dashboard. This would be used to automate the display of full screen dashboards in a rotating manner.

    The current implementation of "Fullscreen" allows for a user to click a button to invoke full screen. However, in automation systems that rotate screens the option is lost and not easily invoked. Please add an additional option to automatically invoke via query string similar to Power BI and other services.
