  1. Show VMSS instance IPs

    The VMSS "Instances" and perhaps the "Overview" blades should show more information to be more useful. My prime example, which I have to look for multiple times a day is the IP address. There are other ways to obtain this, but none of them are as straightforward as it would be to open the VMSS in the portal, click on "Instances" and see the instance number and the IP addresses of the VMSS right there, where I'd expect them.

  2. Filter/Sort Option in VM Sizes selection option

    While creating a VM, the step for choosing a VM Size will be easier if there was a filter or sort option.

    Each time for creating a VM we need to scroll though the list to find the right one. Instead we can sort by price or filter the number or cores /ram would be helpful.

  3. switch between users in Azure

    As cloud service consultant I have to switch between a number of Azure accounts for different clients and between different instances for the same customer.
    Now I need to click "Sign out" in the right top corner. As this is universal Azure AD login used by a number of services clicking on "Sign out" signs me out from other services.

    What would be great to have is the ability to just switch between all signed instances like in Windows where you do not need to log off but can just switch between users or log in with more than one…

  4. Context lost upon refresh

    Today as you perform a browser refresh (F5) your context is lost. This is contributes to bad user experience as you're losing the context of your work.
    Would be much better if the full context was stored in the URL (# part) so it would be fully restored, making the context-based navigation more usable.

  5. Allow the left hand navigation menu to be pinned

    Currently the left hand navigation menu is automatically collapsed and accessible via the hamburger menu button.

    I appreciate that this is to maximize window real estate for the blades but personally I find it extremely frustrating and a break in my workflow for it to auto-collapse.

    Is it possible for this window to have a pin option ? So, people that like the auto-collapse behaviour retain it but people that want the menu to be in a permanently expanded state don't have to repeatedly click the hamburger.

  6. Language translation #jgaj

    Language translation used on texts and messages from every country can make communication just very easy.Imagine a chinese having text conversation with an indian.With just a simple click on the keyboard,every word will automatically be translated and the user will be the one to choose what language is more understandable by him/her.This would be a worldwide understanding.Pushing the limits of technology and evolution into future...

  7. Request to add ability to create favorite menus on any blade.

    Frequent changes in the Azure portal has been applied. That changes contains the move of menus. We sometimes provide demonstration to customers to get new opportunities. But unfortunately, "the change" applied right before the demonstration!!

    Azure is Cloud environment so we cannot say "Don't change". But we actually failed in the contract because we couldn't operate Azure portal smoothly.... So we request you to add ability to create favorite menus on all blade. If you provide, we don't have time to search menus.

  8. Please engage some good designers to design the site. The new Portal is at best "Confusing".

    Please engage some good designers to design the site. The new Portal is at best "Confusing".
    More so with LiveId accounts that are used in multiple subscriptions.
    You will need good designers and information architects to sit through multiple sessions to come up with a suitable and clean ui flow. I used to think that Canonicals Jujucharms https://demo.jujucharms.com/ did a good job of it .. not so much now .. It is a hard problem to represent dense actionable information in a limited screen real estate.

  9. Make column resizing more like Windows (i.e. predictable)

    Right now it's a bit of whack-a-mole when you resize a column; other column names become partially obscured and/or arbitrarily resize, plus there is no way to just resize them all to fit (like CTRL++ in Windows Explorer)

  11. Storage account services summary/filter

    It is difficult to find out a blob/table/queue that you have created when you have many storage accounts and don't remember the storage account name. I have to navigate to each storage account and check each of the services. Also there is no filter on a storage account services. It would be nice to have a filter for blob/queue/table/files on the dashboard.
    Also just displaying the summary of service that is created in that particular storage account would be helpful.

  12. Undo the global filtering change made on 4/16.

    The Change to global filtering made on 4/16 is very counter intuitive, and a pain to navigate for me with 100+ servers across multiple subscriptions.

  13. Improve search for DNS records

    When searching for a record in a DNS zone with many records (+1000), it only searches in the "first page" - you have to press "Load more" multiple times before all the records are searched through.

  15. Portal is really slow when using B2C tenant

    We have two B2C tenants and both are painfully slow to navigate, 30 seconds+ to open a user profile and another 30 seconds+ to do operations.

  17. Include tenant name in Azure Portal's URL

    It would be great if the URLs to the portal contained Tenant's name / ID, because when you share it to external co-workers, they would get switched to the correct tenant and subscriptions.

    So instead of having:
    https://portal.azure.com/#resource/subscriptions/bc517954-9e1f-44ea-9399-32e3b62546c6/resourceGroups/crm/overview
    you would have:
    https://portal.azure.com/#tenantId/resource/subscriptions/bc517954-9e1f-44ea-9399-32e3b62546c6/resourceGroups/crm/overview

  18. Hide & unhide option of navigation pane in azure website.

    The navigation details on left hand side takes a quarter portion of the screen. If hide & unhide options are added a full view screen would be easy for computing as a user.

  19. Can Azure portal show permalink to any specified resource or page?

    Team,

    Currently, Azure portal does not generate or show up permalink in address bar. We could not share a link to the certain page or resource across peers.

    This begs another peer to navigate to that resource from square one.

    Do we have reasons for not having permalink?

    - Ashok

  20. "Web App" filter

    Currently we can filter by App Service. But the slots of an App Service is called a "Web App". Can we include web apps in the App Service filter or add a web app filter?
