  1. Consume an Azure Dashboard from a Sharepoint page

    A customer would like to consume some Azure Dashboards from a Sharepoint page. It would be great to have kind of an Azure connector or a way to add the Azure Dashboard using the Embed Web Part.

  2. Add sort capability to all columns

    I can't believe Azure Portal doesn't allowed you to sort snapshots by date or by size. Same thing for disks and other resources. Please add sort capability to all columns

  3. 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.

  4. wildcard filter

    I'd desperately love to use wildcards ( or %) when searching or filtering through Devices, Users, or other objects in the Azure portal for our tenant. We have thousands of computers, and there is limited filtering available based on string characters from the beginning of a machine or user name, but enabling use of wildcards in the search box would be incredibly helpful. (e.g. tons of machines named "BuildingRoom-123", "BuildingRoom-456", etc. could all be returned using "BuildingRoom-" or "BuildingRoom-%" in the search box...

  5. Tags (name or value) should not allow leading or trailing white space

    I am unable to think of a use case where having leading or trailing white space on a tag name (or value for that matter) adds value to the feature, and most other tools already strip spaces on tags. Additionally it causes issues with being able to retrieve tags because the powershell command to retrieve tags DOES trim the white space. Furthermore these display differently in the portal and spotting the space is not intuitive if you don't know that it is there, until you notice you have multiple tags with the "same" value.

    Example: "Environment" as a tag name…

  6. In Dashboard, custom timespan does not work correctly for App Insight query tiles

    In Dashboard, normally the timespan of the tiles is defined at dashboard-level, but this can be overridden on a per-tile basis.

    However, the "from date" does not behave correctly when it's earlier than 1 month from today, even though the UI is correct.

    For example, today is 26th Feb, and if I set the from date to any date before 27th Jan (e.g. 1st Jan), it will use 27th Jan to perform the query instead.

    This makes the custom timespan useless for many use cases.

  7. Ability to add dividers in the menu

    When marking services as favorite, the left-hand menu can get crazy really fast. It would be nice to either customize the layout by being able to place custom dividers (thin horizontal lines, just like the favorites bar, but without a label, see attachment AzurePortal-Divider-CustomDivider.jpg)

    Or group them by service (see AzurePortal-Divider-PerService.jpg)

  8. Really important PREVIEW items

    IT would be really useful to have a POP up message or an ATTENTION MARK with more details whenever someone wants to create a resource in Azure which is in PREVIEW --> lots of people are creating preview items for production which should not be the case!
    thank you!

  9. swapping delete with delete resources

    I think for convenience the delete button should be swapped or placed closer to the delete resource button. A lot of the times, when testing, I am in an automatic mindset so when deleting only some of the resources I accidentally click on "delete resources" and not "delete" so most of the times I am almost deleting my resource group.

  10. Auto-sort Azure Favorites

    enable auto-sort (alphabetically) the list of items created in my favorites. Manual sort is not useful when you have many favorites created on many directories.

  12. Add virtual tabs to the portal

    Sometimes you want to have a few resources 'open' without having to open multiple actual browser tabs. Can we get some in-portal virtual tabs that could be spawned per resource?

  13. 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

  14. Allow for more verbose sorting in new portal lists

    At present you are not able to sort by all columns in the new Azure portal. For instance if you are in the Network Interface blade you can only sort by Resource Group, not by IP/Subnet, not by vNet or VM attached too. Can this be changed?

  15. Allow the template to be downloaded from the portal even if validation or policy fails

    Currently, when creating a resource in the portal, if template validation fails (for example, due to an Azure Policy Deny rule, or lack of permissions to a related resource), the link to download the template is not provided. Teams who do not have a mature CI/CD pipeline will often use the portal to generate a basic template that they can use. Validation/Policy errors should not block the ability to download said template, especially considering that the user may know what the fix is and need to make that fix within the template itself because there's no way to do it…

  17. Missing horizontal scrollbar in "Virtual Machines" pane after adding multiple columns

    On the virtual machines pane in portal.azure.com, I had to edit the columns to show more attributes. That is when I realised that there is no horizontal scroll bar for me to review the columns. Please have this fixed on priority. Not having the horizontal scroll bar seriously limits to view multiple attributes.

  18. Ability to create 'macros' within the portal and link to Cloud Shell commands

    Sometimes there are features which are not available in the portal, and in these instances the CLI/PowerShell needs to be used.
    It would be great if we could create a 'macro' in a way, display a custom button in Azure, and have it run commands via PowerShell/CLI against the resource.

  19. Include Dashboards in ARM Template Automation Script for Resource Group

    I would like Azure dashboards (Microsoft.Portal/dashboards) to be included when scripting an ARM template for a resource group. There is an article on programmatically creating Azure dashboards but this approach doesn't auto-parameterize resource names like the Automation Script feature on the portal does.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-portal/azure-portal-dashboards-create-programmatically

  20. [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")
