  1. Add Norwegian as regional format in portal settings

    Today the Azure portal has support for 3 different Swedish Regional formats (Svenska) but none for Norwegian.

    I'm Norwegian and it's frustrating that I can't select a Norwegian regional format in the portal settings. I'm currently using English which has the same date format, but not the same 24-hour clock, so I have to struggle with AM-PM all day long in AppInsights etc.

  2. Display installed Azure extension from within the Add Extensions menu

    Provide a mechanism to surface (display) installed Azure Extensions from within the Add menu. For example, I have the Network Watcher Agent (NWA) installed, but when I click <Add> and go into the Extensions menu NWA is still available as an option along with other installed extension. Ideally, add a checkmark to the icon or something like it to depict that the Extenstion has already been installed.

  3. [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")

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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

    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

  16. 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.

  17. enable the "Support Request Contributor" role to be scope at the resource group level for opening premier tickets.

    Currently we are operating in a shared subscription model where each app team is assigned specific resource group(s) and their access is scoped at this level. For them to open premier tickets from ARM, they have to be added as Support Request Contributor at the subscription level.
    This enables visibility to all resource groups in the subscription and impacts the experience of the user. The complaints I have received are "Now I have to search for my resource group" and "I thought we had our own subscription"

    The concept of resource groups is great but loses value when users have…

  18. 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.?

  19. 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

  20. 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!
