    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

  2. creation date as a first order property for all resources and resource groups

    If I have a list of resources or resource groups (retrieved via rest api), I want to be able to sort them by creation date. This would also be useful for portal.azure.com in that you too could add the creation date as a sortable row for all lists of resources and resource groups. This boilerplate feature is noticeably absent. Thank you.

  4. Add a setting to select the timezone to be used across the portal

    If I remember correctly, the old portal had a setting to use a specific timezone for all dates. I would like to have the option to select UTC to be used consistently, as it makes correlating with logs etcl. much easier.
    Currently, you have to select UTC e.g. in the monitor over and over again. Other places do not even provide the option to change the timezone.
    And no, changing the OS time to use UTC is not considered a practical workaround.

  5. 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…

  6. Expiring client secret for apps should alert owners via mail

    When client secrets of registered apps expire, the owner should receive an alert on the Azure console or via mail.
    This could be important as admins cannot monitor the hundreds of production apps with expiring client secrets. Thank you.

  8. Reduce the browser memory footprint, and elimnate the memory leaks.

    There seem to be some rather significant memory leaks in the Portal Dashboard. I've made the mistake of leaving it running overnight a few times, and the browser process working memory use, with the portal being the only browser tab open is often in excess of 1.5 GB. This is with no tiles open. In a few cases, I could not unlock the computer and had to reach across the network to kill the iexplore.exe process before I could gain local access.

  9. Notification should persist across browser refresh.

    Notifications disappear from the list of notification on page refresh it seems. I would prefer dismissing them explicitly.

  10. Document URLs necessary to configure corporate firewalls

    Some companies block access to websites using their firewall and need to white-list specific URLs in order for the portal to work. Common errors that indicate firewall configuration issues include:

    "Some subscriptions couldn't be retrieved"

    The portal uses cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) to communicate to back-end services directly from the browser. We are working with our partner teams to get a full list of URLs required to manage your resources in the portal. Here are a few known URLs:

    *.azure.com
    *.azure.net
    *.windows.net
    *.azurecomcdn.net
    *.azureedge.net
    *.msecnd.net
    login.microsoftonline.com
    login.live.com

    Third-party services:

    *.sendgrid.com
    *.newrelic.com

    Please let us know if we missed any.

  11. Support setting default Dashboard and sorting of the dashboards

  12. Disable the ability to create free/trial subscription in Tenant with work or school account

    I want to disable the ability to create free/trial subscription in our Tenant with work or school account, because we don’t want to manage resources created by users in a free/trial subscription.

  13. Search resource based on dns name or ip address

    Because azure now support custom dns name, is just so hard to find a resource based on them in the azure portal. It would be nice to be able to search any resouce based on the dns name or even better search them by using the ip address.

  14. Allow to move tiles from a dashboard to another dashboard

    I'd like to unpin a tile from a dashboard and pin it to another dashboard. I.E. move tiles between different dashboards. As far as I know, today, the only solution is to remove the tile, switch to the other dashboard, search the element/graph/resource and pin again to the dashboard (the current one).

  15. Show resource Id in the azure portal too

    Show the azure resource id of all the resources in the properties tab for all the resources. Many users are reluctant to run scripts and should be able to see the resource id directly in the UI.

  16. Create custom tiles

    Now we have the option to create custom dashboards with tiles organized by related resources or team, Allowing us to create CustomTiles to customize our dashboards will improve the dashboard experience.

    Our application use some administration pages to monitor application internal events like:
    Customer Registration, Customers Online, Notifications, etc.

    If we could provide a json file or fill a form with all configurations needed to render the tile like:
    Type: Standard(icon and name), Chart(donnut, bar, etc)
    Tile Title
    Icon: Icon Url
    DataSource: Url that return a series of data to fill a Chart or for example the number of connected…

  17. Azure AD sign-in activity log should record and show sign-ins from service principal

    Currently, Azure AD sign-in activity log only shows user activities. Sign-ins from service principal (certificate or client id/key) is not recorded. So it is difficult for customers to know if service principal is maliciously used by certificate or key leak.

  18. Filter Item Wildcards For Easier Search Capabilities

    When looking at a long list of several resources (all resources or items within a resource group) with long naming conventions there is no easy way to search/filter what you are looking for without spelling out the beginning of the resource.

    It would be convenient to type: %item%prod% to be able to gather all resources containing that specific "item" and in "prod".
    i.e. itemeus1storageprod1

  19. Create the ability to remove or change inherited permissions at the resource group level.

    We have a managed service provider and some customers that need a degree of permissions at the subscription level. There are several resource groups that I do not want them to have the same level of access they have at the subscription level. For instance, I would like to remove them from the Azure Automation RG or provide them read level access to our OS image folder.
