Azure portal

The Azure Portal a central place where you can provision, manage and monitor your Azure resources. From the Azure Portal you can create any of the thousands of items within the Azure Marketplace, you can quickly navigate to resources and accomplish your administrative needs, and you can build custom shareable dashboards to provide live insights into your deployed resources.

To gain early access to our latest features please make sure to visit the preview portal.
Preview.portal.azure.com is our early release soon to be in production.

  1. 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!

  2. 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?

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. [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")

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. Azure Portal Templates need Versioning, Releases and Deprecation flags

    Azure Portal Templates need versioning for testing. Having a "network" template with a label of "released" or "published" would allow editing of a template while still being able to use it in production.

    You should also be able to deploy a template using "version 1.0" and flag an older version as "deprecated"

  12. Enable QnA/Cognitive Services for natural language queries in portal

    Would be incredibly nice to see features such as the natural language Q&A approach in PowerBI, where you could infer the following insights (both in Portal as well as API/CLI avenues):

    1) Ask questions and receive suggestions or practices on how to deploy certain resources (e.g. "I'm looking to build a web app that's traffic/load balanced across multiple regions", and have suggestions and/or recommended ARM templates to complete the tasks)

    2) Ask questions on how resources are performing, and show KPIs for Azure Monitor, with suggestions for better performance

    3) Ask for details on cost analysis, with suggestions returned for…

  13. 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.

  14. Make "The Submit an Idea" more visible.

  16. 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. Use my context for create actions

    When im in a resource group and click new something there is a really good chance i want to create that new thing in the subscription and resource group that im currently in. Why does the portal default to some other subscription and RG. When im done creating a new object in a resource group why does it take me out of that resource group and go back to the home page? I would save so much time is the portal would respect the context i already set by navigating to a location.

  19. 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.

  20. All Services

    Small beans but when I click "All Services", it would be great is there was a button to de-selected all selected items.
