  1. Allow notifications to be filtered by subscription

    I am currently am a reader on about 11 subscriptions, but I typically don’t care about the noisy day to day alerts that take place in most of those subscriptions. I only really care to receive alerts on the two subscriptions I am responsible for.

    Common alerts include
    * Failed Data Factory runs
    * App Insights WebTest Failures

    I would like to be able to filter which notifications I care about, at the very least by subscription.

  2. No option to auto arrange tiles?

    Why not provide a button to auto arrange tiles? Sort them based on name, creation date, etc.

  3. View your full email and/or subscription at the top

    I use multiple email addresses with different email domains to manage multiple accounts. Some accounts have multiple subscriptions to them.

    However, the space where the email address is displayed at the top too small. I can't tell which email I'm looking at.

    And if you have multiple subscriptions, there isn't a way to know which subscription is which because it only shows the id -- not the organization it is associated with.

  4. Ability to visualize your Azure engagement

    I have ended up managing many Azure resources (my own and customers') attached to many accounts (including my work and personal account that have the same email). I find it very difficult to get an overview of what engagement I have. What account do I use to manage that resource? What am I allowed to do here? What subscriptions do I have? What directory is connected to this account? I am also struggling with understanding the basic structure of Azure (admins roles, subscriptions etc). It would be helpful to get some kind of overview of my different engagements. Perhaps a…

  5. Alert on dashboard needed when account is disabled

    So just recently my account got disabled because I hit my spending limit. What happened was that some of my blades (my app settings and the authentication/authorization blade) froze up. It was only after I'd raised a request with the Twitter support line that I realised it might have been my account. I checked and removed my spending limit, then after it had propagated through the servers my blades came online again.

    If I'd had a clear alert on my dashboard I wouldn't have felt the need to go through support.

  8. Show total number of resources in a given view

    As the number of resources grows the views inside the portal can become more complex and difficult to visually comprehend/manage/keep track off. One simple way to improve this would be to show the number of items in any given view. For example in the "Resource Group" blade at the top it would be good to show the number of resources groups there are. As this list grows it can stretch beyond the bottom of the screen and difficult to see how many there are. Showing the number is a quick way to see how many there are, but also to…

  9. Having subscribed for the first tme ever on azure - how about an "IN YOUR FACE" link of what to do first - there's nothing - NotEvenInSearch

    This has probably been mentioned before by every 'newbie' There's no help in the search. There's no link on the first screen - what to do now? There's nothing pre-configured - basically I'm glad it's free because I don't think I'll be using this garbage - haven't got time to wade through faq's (NOT THAT FAQ EXISTS EITHER) - just a simple link or a wizard (you know the type that most programmers use to set up unfamiliar applications for first time users) - just the simple things to get one started - would be nice! (and even say imperative)…

  10. nueva catalogacion de los sevicios segun el "XaaS"

    Creo muy ideal el catalogar los servicios actuales bajo las definiciones teóricas de modelo IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. Por ejemplo, bajo el marco IaaS se asocian los servicios de virtual machine, etc, bajo el marco de PaaS se asocian los servcios de SQL, Hadoop, etc. Bajo el marco de DaaS se asocian servicios como Intune, etc.

  11. Play a MIDI file while the portal loads

    While waiting for the portal to load it would be nice if a MIDI file could be played to make the experience more exciting.

  12. Action buttons take too much space

    The "Add", "Columns", "Refresh", etc buttons at the top of the blades eat a lot of vertical real estate considering how often one needs to press it.

    Consider a smaller band that expands upon mouse hover... (or putting them next to the blade title).

  14. allow multiple sources for a graph on the dashboard

    Currently for example you can only have data on a graph regarding one thing such as "Website" but you can add multiple different bits of information, such as data in, data out and request but as soon as you mix types e.g counts and Data the axis become unreadable.

    If you could join a graph across multiple websites (or similar objects) then you could have one graph with multiple lines on it all related to the request count for different websites you currently own. This would mean less graphs needed to display the same data on the dashboard and would…

  15. Add links to docs/schemas in the Resource Explorer

    I am using the sample templates and resource explorer to guide me building relative simple template from a group out team have deployed. To me, it is a very difficult even a simple resource group, as I cannot find documents of the template for the services, not mention the description of each properties defined in the template.
    Maybe you can check how AWS document their CloudFromation. It is easy to search and read, and with samples associate with each of their service (called resource type). It is much easier to follow.

    We can do this, if it’s a popular request, but it would only apply the very first time you create something in the portal. After you create one resource, we remember the location for all future resources. Let us know if you aren’t seeing this somewhere.

  17. My domain does not show up in the new portal, only the old. When will this be fixed?

    When I switch views from old to new the new portal does not list any subscriptions. We are on O365.

  18. Dragging of Windows and Show The previous Window

  19. Type in UI for changing resource group on a classic resource.

    When moving a resource from one resource group to another (classic resources) the UI prompts you to type 'Defau' to confirm. This seems like a typo.

  20. count on search results

    After a search is made and results are displayed in grid a count of found results would be useful when you search for resources with a prefix.
    Or a column , Count.
