  1. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Please please get rid of the leftmost menu and replace it with the menu that appears after clicking Browse

    I hate clicking Browse to see the full list of services. It's an extra click for me. Put the full list on the leftmost panel and keep the filter textbox. Or merge the two menus together keeping the current leftmost panel at the top and full list at the bottom so users can still see most commonly used services. This is driving me nuts.

  16. When hovering over the tile 'all resources' a pop-up with brief description would be handy

    The tiles already tell me whether it is a virtual machine of virtual network however especially in the beginning, when I'm new to Azure. The tiles aren't always clear to me. So a brief pop-up with the description would be handy. Thanks!

  17. Offer shortcuts (Ctrl + S to save)

    I use a lot the keyboard with tabs and shortcuts and it will be productive to have a Save shortcut instead of going to the save button

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Ability to share charts and dashboards to use them as embedded controls on external web pages.

    Would be ideal to share interactive charts and dashboards to embedded them on external webpages. Refresh time, date ranges and time granularity will be configurable.
