  1. SCIM Provision groups on demand

    Currently application provisioning via SCIM works on a 20-40 minute cadence. For on demand use cases, like using PIM to provide prod support in a separate environment like Salesforce or AWS, this is not fast enough. On demand provisioning is only available for users, not groups. Please add group support or allow a mechanism for a faster sync.

  3. Portal page title should include unread notification count and/or use Web Notifications API

    The title of the portal should include the number of unread notifications (much like a number of webmail sites do for new emails).
    Furthermore, if your browser supports W3C Web Notifications ( http://www.w3.org/TR/notifications/ ) we should be using those too.

  4. Apply CanNotDelete or ReadOnly locks to Azure App Registrations in AAD

    We utilise Locks on various resources to stop our core development and production resources being accidentally deleted, however, the same ability to apply a lock to Azure App Registrations in AAD would be beneficial

  5. Impersonate users for Admin

    I suggest that a "Impersonate" feature be added for portal administrators. Like in ServiceNow, this feature would allow an administrator to test the permissions/role granted to users within a group. This would allow the admin to see exactly what the user is sees.

  7. UI for Resource Policy Management and Policy Aware for resource creation in portal

    Azure Resource Policy is a great feature for enterprise customers to enforce their resources in a compliant state. However, there is no user interface to view policy definitions and assignments in a given scope. Also, the UI don't respect policy at all but only give an error after the deployment is submitted.

  11. Always On should be improved

    The Always On feature in App Services is designed to prevent IIS from sleeping by continually pinging the web endpoint. This works by sending a request to the app service endpoint, port 80, root path (/) but in several scenarios, this doesn't work. 1) If the service is https only 2) If traffic manager is protecting the sites, then TM pings it anyway and always on will instead route via TM and possibly not do what it should do. 3) If the root path is not available (e.g. one of my WCF services doesn't have anything at the root) then…

  13. Limit what's visible in the portal based on RM policies

    Currently, the Azure portal shows all available resources and all available regions. It would be great if we can curate what's visible in the portal based ARM policies. For instance, if I have a policy that limits what regions I can provision my resources into, the portal should only show the allowable resources. Currently, the user won't know there's a restriction until they try to provision something outside of an allowable region. This causes user frustration, confusion, and most importantly, time.

    Other use cases:
    If I restrict access to only compute, networking, and storage service providers, those should be the…

  14. Hierarchical Visualizer for all Resource Groups and all dependencies (deployments)

    Would be great to sea all dependencies of all deployed resources in a global manner.
    You can select one storage account and get a tree of all dependencies or
    you select a resource group and ALL dependencies of nested resources.

  15. Support changing VMSS managed disk type

    The document indicates that OS disk account type can't be changed since it's a create time property.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machine-scale-sets/virtual-machine-scale-sets-upgrade-scale-set#properties-with-restrictions-on-modification

    By confirming with product team, the change of managed data disk type is not supported as well.

    Which means, Az powershell provides an option "[-ManagedDiskStorageAccountType <String>]" that is completely useless.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/az.compute/update-azvmss?view=azps-3.4.0

    Will vmss supports changing the managed disk type in the future?

  16. Changing app service plan should be improved

    If you are allowing to assign app service to any service plan within same subscription (regardless of the resource group), you should be able to change it to any service plan as well.

  18. Rbac: hide resources that users don't have read permissionsome for

    Example: Today if you create a custom permissions role and don't assign a user read to Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines a user is still able to complete the wizard to create a new vm, once the deployment is submitted the deployment returns that the user doesnt have the correct permissions.

    It would be preferred that the user can not access the blade to deploy a new vm.

  19. Add a short description ("info") for each resource

    For example: I don't know the difference between "Virtual Machines (classic)" & "Virtual Machines".

    I think a brief description next to the title could help me to understand what means each resource, even before creating one of them.

  20. Ability to delete all unused resource groups in the new portal

    I have lots of unused resource groups from experimenting with different resources. Now, I need to delete them one by one which is a tedious process.
