  1. Custom images storage

    First of all we do not have any opportunity to increase the hardware properties of our cloud servers.

    To create a new server we need to have a resource group and unfortunatelly we do not have permission to create resource group while we are creating a new cloud server.

    Besides we do not have a default storage for our custom images of servers. After getting custom images of our servers we are not able to connect to our remote server.

  2. Add Description to NSG Rules.

    Add Description to NSG Rules. By default Description can be added to the NSG rule from PowerShell or JSON and be retrieved from it, but it would be good to see it too in portal as it would help to check what, who and for example under which tag it was created (as we add such info to the Description field)

  4. 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.

  5. See number of cores per VM in virtual machine view

    I'd like to be able to see the number of cores per virtual machine in a column and RAM allocation. At the moment we can only view the machine size A, D, etc.

  8. Azure SQL Long-Term Backup Storage

    The Azure SQL feature "Long-Term backup retention" does not currently support using a Recovery Vault in another resource group. I know this is a preview feature subject to change but it would be very helpful.

  11. Documentation for ARM templates

    The documentation is terrible. The product in my opinion should only be used for simple single app on single VM deployments. Due to the lack of documentation and the difficulty to find it I will be recommending other platforms to my clients and anyone that will listen. Get some docs and a platform locked GUI for making templates is not a solution.

  14. 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…

  18. Ability to Filter Logic Apps based on resource group/subscription/location

    In the list of all logic apps, it would be great to be able to filter based on resource group name or subscription or location.

    We have a lot of logic apps in one subscription for different environment like Testing, UAT etc. For each environment we have a separate resource group. So, it would be good to be able to have filter option in above mentioned fields and an option to save the query aswell.

  19. Find resources that are not in use and/or find relationships between resources.

    We have a lot of resources in our Azure portal as a result of testing & trials. Now that we are going into production, it is difficult to discern which resources are not being used any more because their virtual machines have been deleted, etc. Would also be nice to be able to select a resource and see "associated resources" from there.

  20. Unable to Delete Resource Group from Free Trial

    Looks like the VHD is still hanging in limbo after an old VM was deleted during my Free Trial. Now I am unable to delete that old resource group from my account.
