  2. Show imported subscriptions and resources by default in global subscriptions filter.

    When you import a subscription and it's resources from another Azure account it is deselected by default in the Global subscription filter. This should be checked by default when imported. Nobody wants to import a subscription they aren't going to manage.

  3. Make Asset Container Blob search case-insensitive

    For example, when using GUIDs as the identifiers for blobs, you can't filter/search using an upper-case string i.e. 51D198C1-A412-441D-9A89-F39292699508 cannot find blob 51d198c1-a412-441d-9a89-f39292699508

  5. connection draining feature for App Gateway or LB

    A feature like ‘connection draining’ in App Gateway or LB which allows existing connections on a VM NOT to be removed on an event of downscaling to execute those requests and not allowing new connections to this VM for a period of time and finally removing that VM?

  6. Allow VM capture to cool storage

    The VM capture in the portal should offer (as default) the option to store the captured data in the cheapest storage available (cool / archive)
    Since the backup is typically accessed on disasters (hopefully never) it makes no sense to pay the frequent access tier price for this data.
    I know that actually there is a blob format issue for vhds that use page blobs vs cool storage that use block blob , but I leave this conversion problems to your engineers, as a user what I want is an easy, frictionless service right in the portal, that backups my…

  8. provide readme.md to each resource overview page

    We could forget what the resource is and why it is created.

    GitHub provides good detail that it creates default ReadMe.md file to every repository and shows up as a basic description.

    It would be good to provide similar functionality into the Overview page.

  9. What if we can have resource as drag and drop on to a whiteborad and mention the properties and relation with other resources

    What if we can have resource dragged and dropped on to a whiteborad and mention the properties and relation with other resources, where by effectively creating a pipeline pictorially. Connections with direction depicting dependencies. Or we could upload our ARM template and have it visualized and when deployed we can see progress of resource getting created by having highlight around resource. Wouldn't that be something :)

  10. routing

    Allow User Defined Routing based on source subnet or TCP\UDP ports or service aka Source Based Routing. This would allow for traffic steering to ensure for example that only port 80 traffic went through the WAF appliance or only database traffic from a particular subnet goes through the IPS network appliance.

  11. Split Billing for Azure resources

    Azure accounts that have credits from MSDN Subscriptions can only be used for Dev and Test environments. This disrupts the pipeline for being able to deploy a system from Dev, into Test and then swap into Production. You would need to have a second Azure account with a production license.
    Why not enable split billing so you can tag a resource in Azure as a production system, allowing it to be licensed, as well as billed from a credit card or other Azure credit. The Dev and Test resources would be billed from the MSDN credit as normal.
    This would…

  12. Specify active hour for VMs, so they can auto hibernate

    I have a few virtual machines in my account that are sparingly used and I know for sure that I only need it during the week days between 9-5. It would be nice if they was a way to configure an active or working hours for these Virtual machine (resource), That way I can manage my resource efficiently.

  13. Standardise the naming standard

    When you are trying to have a decent naming standard it would be helpful if we could name WebApps and Storage accounts similarly such as dev-name-type rather than devnametype. I belive this would make the different azure services easier to manage.

  14. Uploading a file to blob storage should set the Content-MD5 header

    I'm using the header to compare blobs quickly (no malicious attackers) so need it to be there. It is when uploaded from my code or from Storage Explorer, but not from the portal.

  16. Nickname Tiles for Dashboard

    It'd be nice to nickname the tiles on the dashboard so I can quickly identify difference between similarly named services. For example: don't always want to look at them by their azure subdomain.

  17. Password Protection to verify container delete

    Include an option to "Password Protect" storage containers so that a user must enter the account password to verify the deletion of a container -- this will help prevent accidental deletes.

  18. Ability to create/edit Azure email notifications

    There should be a method within Azure managmenet portal that allows you to edit/configure/create Azure email notifications.

    Here you can view default email notification templates i.e. Alerts.

    You can then edit the email notification template to capture certain items to populate within the subject line or body of the email.

    i.e. populate resource group, VNET server is under, etc.

  19. Suspend Resource Locks

    It would be great if I could set a lock to "suspend" for a period of time. Today if I need to make changes with read-only or delete a sub component when delete is set, I have to remove the lock completely. That means I have to create a new lock and I have to remember to create a new lock when I am done. For shared resources I'm thinking of applying a lock for each consuming resource to avoid accidental deletion until all consumers have been disconnected. Re-establishing those locks is a pain but even a single lock I…

  20. Option for deletion of related resources at time of deleting a resource

    When someone deletes a resource (say a VM) he/she may want to delete all the resources that are being used by this current resource (like NICs, Public IPs, VNETs for the VM). If there is an option like a checklist, listing all the related resources and the user can select which resources to delete along with, it can be a real hassle-free experience for the user.
