  1. Ability to move resources from one resource group to another

    In regard to Resource Groups, there is a particular feature I feel is missing: the ability of moving one resource from a resource group to another. Basically, the situation is like this: upon the lauch of the new portal, each of my Azure storage accounts and websites I've been using was added into a single Resource Group. Therefore, website A which was consuming data from a storage account with a similar name (A) ended up into two different Resource Groups: Default-Storage-NorthEurope and Default-Web-NorthEurope. Right now, whenever I navigate to the Resource Groups blade I get lots of generic named resource…

    Hey Folks,

    We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

    We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

    Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

    Thanks,
    Azure Portal Team

  2. move services between subscriptions

    I've noticed that many people want this, an easy way to move not only Virtual Machine but also websites, cloud services, SQL Databases between datacenters / subscriptions. I'm looking forward to this feature.

  3. Add Generate Powershell Script options wherever possible in the Azure Management portal

    Like in SQL server Management Studio - you can set up what you want to do and then click a Save as Script or Generate Script button to get the SQL that will do the same thing.

    In the Azure Portal, it would be awesome at the end of the "New" wizards to have an option to generate the Powershell commands to do the same thing.

  4. Document URLs necessary to configure corporate firewalls

    Some companies block access to websites using their firewall and need to white-list specific URLs in order for the portal to work. Common errors that indicate firewall configuration issues include:

    "Some subscriptions couldn't be retrieved"

    The portal uses cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) to communicate to back-end services directly from the browser. We are working with our partner teams to get a full list of URLs required to manage your resources in the portal. Here are a few known URLs:

    *.azure.com
    *.azure.net
    *.windows.net
    *.azurecomcdn.net
    *.azureedge.net
    *.msecnd.net
    login.microsoftonline.com
    login.live.com

    Third-party services:

    *.sendgrid.com
    *.newrelic.com

    Please let us know if we missed any.

  5. Use a standard menu for all resource features and config

    Make sure all features and configuration options for a resource are available via a single, standardized menu. Use the blade for monitoring and the menu for everything else. Everything should be easy to find and navigate to from that menu and it should be rendered as a complete list at once -- do not update the menu after it's been rendered (that causes accidental mis-clicks because the menu jumps around).

    (This was created based on common feedback we've heard in this area. Please feel free to add comments to help us plan and implement this in the best way possible…

  6. 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.
