  1. Clicking and dragging a tile on the home screen should invoke customization mode.

    When I click and drag a tile on the Azure Ibiza Portal, I should automatically be put into customization mode, OR, the tile should simply move where I drag it to, without entering the full customization mode. I'm not sure which implementation would be more practical, but I feel as if something should happen. Right now, it only selects text.

  3. Link resources were easier to add and remove on the old portal.

    Link resources (like mysql databases) were easier to add and remove on the old portal.

  4. progress bar location

    The progress bar of any activity is shown under the alerts bell menu. I think it should be put down together with the action notification banner.

  5. after showing notifications, view should not return to homepage

    When I click a notification, the notification blade is showed and when I close it, the context where I was working is lost.
    Ex: in VM (classic) blade I decide to start a VM, the notification shows me an error, I click the notification, read the error message and then close the notification blade. At this point the home page is shown instead of the blades I had previously. Would it be possible to show the notification blade on the right? or perhaps, next to the blade I'm currently using?

  6. Enable a "Folder"-type tile

    We are an organization that creates a lot of webservices and storage accounts, and all. And it currently is a mess to navigate between all the webservices and their respective add-ons.
    Why should a webservice and one of its add-ons should be 2 separate tiles on the dashboard ? And to make navigation easier, why couldn't we create "Folders" in the dashboard to help organizing our numerous tiles ?

  7. Make button positions on blades consistent (put them all at the top)

    Most blades have their action buttons in the blue area at the top, but many blades also have "Ok" buttons at the bottom. This is a pain in the keester to have to go back and forth getting thrown. Even many "Save" buttons are in the blue area at the top of the blade. Just put all buttons at the top ... it would make using the portal much faster.

  8. Manage two azure resources at once

    Currently if I want to manage two of my azure resources I have to open each one sequentially or open two browser windows. Ideally I'd like to be able to open the blade for both resources side by side, and dismiss all the blades that I used to navigate to the resource. I can then do side by side comparisons of settings etc.

  9. Ability to add generic links / url's to resources

    The ability to add generic URLs with a label to any resource from the portal or Powershell. This is useful for linking to configuration documents, debugging procedures, external inventory systems, etc.

  10. Please provide additional columns for the "All Resources" View

    I'd like to see the following columns:
    1. Pricing Tier
    2. Current Billing - how much the service has incurred to date
    3. Status - running, stopped, etc.
    4. Clients - number of latest active clients

    Other improvements:


    • Provide a "short name" or alias for the subscription name.

    • Be able to sort the services in the "All Resources" view - sort by name, service started date, cost, # clients, etc.

    • Use icons to indicate service health and cost

  11. Retry Database Creation Failure

    If a database creation fails for some reason, provide the ability to edit and resubmit a request instead of starting from scratch each item.

  12. Display VM status during it's creating

    Currently, I create VM in new portal (Ibiza) is only view "Creating VM" status, can't know VM status changes during creation process. I need to view status from "Browse" and view virtual machine to get. So I recommend display deployment status in VM creation process to help me to confirm VM status quickly.

  13. Ability to browse for existing resources when entering parameters in Resource Group Template

    It would be nice to allow browsing for an existing network/subnet (in different resource groups) or storage account.

  14. Log changes made in Portal

    I spent the afternoon attempting to find what changed in an app to cause something to stop responding. However, the change wasn't with the app, it was with the virtual network. Someone else on our account made a change that caused some grief. I'd like to see a log showing when machines were added, resources given, changes made, etc. Can just be a simple "This person made this change on this date/time" text list.

  15. Page to report outages from individual extensions/services to keep customer informed

    It will be good, if we can report outages from individual extensions/services some where in the portal so that end customer can be informed. In case of outage customers keep trying to access that extension/service and getting impacted. Individual extensions owners should be allowed to post messages to that page...

  16. When creating a new resource, each resource should have an info badge to learn more about that resource

    A Mobile, Logic, or Web app for instance. If you want to learn more, if you have to open a new page and look around for the information yourself. Provide easy links on each resource to find out more, not just configure/set up a new instance.

  17. Don't recommend pricing tier

    When I am creating a new VM or web app, the Azure Portal always recommends different tiers, but what tier I need really depends on what I am doing, making the recommendations useless. Consider removing. It just creates an extra click every time.

  18. Improve how Azure reports that operations ended

    During my work, I have noticed that many operations like updating, stopping or removing VMs are reported as completed before the requested changes have finished being applied. For example, if you remove a VM, the operation is reported as completed although disks need some extra time to be completely detached (and, thus, removed or reused).

    That was one example but there are others. All these kinds of I-have-not-actually-finished-doing-the-work situations often break scripts. Manually implementing sleep-and-check code blocks is not a clean and safe option at all, because this is something that the API shoud offer.

    Because all of this, we…

  19. Either add an 8x4 or a 3x4

    With the widgets on the screen I want to be able to have a large graph and then smaller graphs underneath it. With a 6x4 on top, I can't put (2) graphs beneath it and have it line up. Either make it so the large graph can be 8x4, or the smaller graphs 3x2. Personally I'd go with the 8x2

  20. Browse should only show everything I HAVE

    "Browse Everything" should only show everything I HAVE. there is no way to easily see everything I have deployed like I can in the current portal.
