  1. Allow for comments or notes on resources

    A text description on resources/things would be great for keeping track of what each resource/thing is.

        • List of ALL the subscriptions associated to my User Login.

          Currently the portal shows in the "Subscriptions" section only the subscription associated to the Directory (AAD) that is selected by default. I have several subscriptions associated to several directories.

            • One portal for all Microsoft products i.e (azure+office365+intune)

              This might be additional feature in the marketplace to connect intune, office365 or any other Microsoft product.

              • Import Azure configurations into Visio

                I would like a process to export all the azure configurations and import them into Visio to be able to build accurate architecture diagrams of the environment.
                This would allow for a 'point in time' reference for what is the current state.
                Expanding on this would be the ability to have templates of diagrams to represent different perspectives of the environment ( network / server details / etc. ).
                Through the use of TAGS and Metadata, you could produce the layout of platforms / applications / business aligned systems / etc.

                Producing these artifacts and versioning over time will show…

                • Refresh button in each blade

                  Provide a refresh button/option in each blade.
                  Scenario i found this need: provisioning a SharePoint farm. In the process of Azure assets creation, when i look at the resource group blade, i need to hit F5 to see the process of different VMs, cloud services etc being created.

                  Not high level priority but can be useful.

                  • Merge Resource Groups

                    As an azure user I would like the ability to select two or more resource groups in the portal and select merge which would result in all the groups being consolidated into one. One of the selected resource groups would be selected as the "target" group and all other groups would be removed.

                    This would be a faster version of the delete and consolidate option I've also posted.

                    • Azure Designer tool

                      My Idea was to create a Azure Designer tool in the Azure portal which can enable Azure Engineers and Architects to design a Azure services as per customer requirements and convert them as a blue print or Archictect diagrams for customers or for implementations.

                      • Allow us to set the date format on the portal.

                        Allow us to change the date format. Since not everybody in the world likes using US dates :)

                        • Allow pinned tile configuration to include label customization

                          Customization options for pinned tiles are limited to size. In order to help create a more task-drive friendly environment, allowing renaming of tiles would be very helpful. For instance rather that have 4 tiles say "Site Settings" for my sites, allow me to label them so I can distinguish them.

                          • 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.

                            • Refresh button for Azure dashboard

                              At present there is no way to refresh a table for eg. a table showing containers in a particular storage. I ran my script to add containers to a storage. Now I have to refresh the whole page to check is it was created or not. Same is the case with instances and most of the tables.

                                    Thanks for the feedback. Are you looking for a filter option on all blades with tabular data or all blades in general? Let us know if there are specific blades you’d like to see this on more than others.

                                    • Make it more touch friendly

                                      For instance, when I am on the Dev Console and I tap the onscreen keyboard, I can't see what I am typing. Similarly, when I want to select some text, it doesn't work with text. Dragging tiles is also a problem.

                                      • Restrict access to Portal by IP address

                                        I have heard that many customers want to configure so that administrators can access to Azure management portal from defined IP address ranges.

                                        I saw the following feedback, but it's actually ip address restriction for "MFA".
                                        http://feedback.azure.com/forums/223579-azure-preview-portal/suggestions/2297513-restrict-access-to-portal-by-ip-or-rsa-securid
                                        I want simple restriction capability for management portal access by IP address.

                                        • Resource Group Template parameter validation

                                          With so many different naming limitations between different object types, we need a way to validate parameters before submitting for deployment. An added bonus would be to allow us our own custom validation operations. Please note I am referring to parameter fields in the portal; not variables.
