  1. Azure should have a option to rename the "ResourceGroup"

    Azure should have a option to rename the "ResourceGroup". That would be easier for us to manage the resources

  3. Allow custom names for times in Portal clocks

    Rather than having the tile state "Central Standar..." I would like to be able to enter a custom name like "Chicago"

  4. Alert Profile for multiple subscriptions

    Like many Azure users, I have access and monitor several subscriptions. Recently MS introduced the new Alert framework. But to use it, I need to create Action Groups and Rules, under EACH AND EVERY subscriptions. This is "DEPARTMENT OF REDUNDANCY DEPARTMENT" and breaks basic rules on Database Normal Form, namely, DUPLICATE DATA.

    Why not tie the Action Rule (or Action Group) to an Azure Account PROFILE and make it available to ALL the subscriptions that the Account has access to?

    Now, if I need to edit my email address or phone number, or otherwise change how I get Azure Alerts,…

  5. Unsaved changes to a dashboard blocks basic features

    When using a shared dashboard and just testing changes/and or just wanting to change the timespan temporarily, the dashboard says there are unpublished changes and this blocks MANY features, like being able to make further edits, full screen, SEARCH, etc. There is no reason for a change to block so many features, especially if I want the change just locally for a short time.

  6. Dashboard reader role in Azure porta;

    I am requesting for a dashboard reader role in Azure portal. We create a lot of dashboards based on Azure metrics or app insights. We share these dashboards with groups like help desk. We are currently adding the help desk group as a reader in the resource group. If there is a dashboard reader, that would be better preferred so we don't have provide read access which would allow the group to see more than what they are supposed to see.

  7. Change regional format Svenska (Finland) to Finnish

    Since Finland has not been under Swedish rule after 1808, could you also acknowledge this fact and let the people of Finland have their own regional format?

  8. Add Norwegian as regional format in portal settings

    Today the Azure portal has support for 3 different Swedish Regional formats (Svenska) but none for Norwegian.

    I'm Norwegian and it's frustrating that I can't select a Norwegian regional format in the portal settings. I'm currently using English which has the same date format, but not the same 24-hour clock, so I have to struggle with AM-PM all day long in AppInsights etc.

  9. New Function: Export resource group as terraform file.

  10. Add automatic refresh for Application Insights queries (tables) pinned to Azure Dashboard

    According to Microsoft documentation there is automatic refresh for charts pinned to Azure Dashboard.

    But there is no any automatic update applied for the table, moreover refresh button on the tile work only first time when you click on it.

    It would be a lot more useful to have automatic refresh for all AI queries, doesn't matter of displaying format.

  11. Expand search features to include Computer Name field

    Expand the search features to include the Computer Name field.

    Virtual machine naming standards may change down the road causing a mismatch from the originally created Azure Virtual Machine name. Allowing for searches to include the option of Computer Name, will allow for quicker discovery.

  14. allow us to toggle whether "hidden" resources are shown.

    Action Groups are hidden by default, we have a Resource Group containing these action groups but we can never search for either the resource or the rg.
    please allow us to decide whether we want to see these by default. Failing everything, please allow the search results to return results for RGs that only contain hidden resources, this doesn't currently happen.

  15. Portal Notifications: Change default from "Dismiss All" to "Dismiss Completed" and close

    Most situations we just want do "Dismiss Completed", not anything pending. This forces going to the dropdown and in many cases accidentally "Dismiss All".
    Also, the pane should close automatically once you dismiss things.
    I suggest either the above changes or configurations options to achieve the same functionality.

  16. Dashboard not showing data for various metrics.

    When I make my own dashboards, some data points do not display. For example, Failed requests for an Api. If I look at the api metrics directly I can see the failed requests, if I add them as a metric on a dashboard module, they show zero.

    I've tried changing the graph type and other things but I never see data on Failed Requests, Exceptions, Server Exceptions, etc. I can however see some data on other hings like Requests and Users.

  17. Resource dependency and reference

    Looking forward to a feature (blade) in azure portal to list all dependent resources when we select a particular resource. For example, when i select a webapp, the reference blade should list all the resources(logic apps, function apps etc) that are calling this web app

  18. AZ CLI command naming scheme to match AZ portal blades names/sub menu names. CLI and Portal users can be much more efficient.

    AZ CLI command naming scheme to match AZ portal blades names/sub menu names. CLI and Portal users can be much more efficient.

    For example if I'm on the Resource Group>Overview blade, I get information such as Sub.ID and a list of resources. In AZ CLI, if type the command of "AZ ResourceGroup Overview" I would get the same information.
