  1. too busy, too convoluted

    There is still a bit of unused screen. Can a few more icons and colors be used to fill that up? I'm not sure if every Azure feature that I will never use is represented on-screen, but you've certainly made a good effort, so kudos for that.

    Seriously. We use MFA. All I want to do is add a new user from our finance department who can change the payment method, and give that person some screencaps to show her how to do it. I take it from how convoluted this whole process is that no one from Microsoft has…

  2. Ability to move from one azure login account to another

    When working for a client I may need to be logged into their subscription as JohnDo@someaccount.com but also have our corporate subscription as JohnSmith@mycorp.com

    It would be really nice to be able to *Switch accounts* instead of having to logout / login -- or currently have two browser windows in incognito mode -- both of which are a pain for navigation and quick resolution... of any administrative work needing to be done.

  3. All Virtual Machine should be search with their IP Address too like we do search with their hostname

    The other cloud providers like AWS , we can get machine detail with ip address but in Azure it is not possible , any how we need to find hostname afterward we can get machine detail .

  4. Add a condition in your indexing where it can show VMs by searching IP

    As of now, we are unable to search the VM wit its internal or external IPs. In case if we have a huge infrastructure setup and we only have IP of server as information, we cant search via IP address in current Azrue portal.

    Please make some modification in you indexing/search condition where it can display results of VMs while searching the IP.

    In AWS console we can search it.

  6. Improve virtual machine "choice a size" user interface

    It's would be better if virtual machine "Choice a size" step with a few new features:

    1. Simple text filter for keyword searching
    2. Specific type (CPU, I/O, RAM, GPU, ...) filtering with a radio/checkbox

  7. Identification (like account # or customer id #) associated with anydocument or email generated. The identification should be searchable.

    All documents, emails, spreadsheets, etc. must have the identification # and resource from a lookup box. Only administrators can add new numbers to lookup box. Fields to be identified but require more than a number field.

    Can we have 'Load All' option to show all Secrets in key vault?
    and also to have kind of grid view, so we can search required secrete quickly.

  10. I want to see blob names in the blob list.

    I uploaded 5 blobs. When I came back after a new login, I'd could not see the blob name in any of the columns. The first column is time, and it is not very meaningful. The name resides in properties behind each line, but that is awkward.

  11. Portal should show Resource Name for support requests

    Enhance the way support requests are listed in the Portal. Display resource name involved in the support request so that it is clear which request is linked to which specific resource (by name, not just type and subscription ID).

    I support 20+ data warehouse within a single subscription. The current portal does not show the actual resource name associated with a support case, only the resource type and subscription.

  12. Make available the recursive size of a folder in the data lake in both powershell and data lake data explorer

    Make available the size of a folder and all files and folders contained within in, both from powershell and the data lake data explorer. We can do this by writing a custom script in powershell but it's slow and surely a common task.

    Please provide a cmdlet that returns the recursive size for a given data lake folder and ideally also make that data available in the data lake data explorer

  13. Allow sorting of data lake files viewed through data explorer by date modified, size, and name; both ascending and descending

    Allow sorting of data lake files and folders viewed through data explorer by date modified, size, and name; both ascending and descending. This functionality is surely very simple to implement and also makes the data lake data explorer a lot more usable.

  15. Add

    In MAG Portal add the AAD Directories and permissions you are a part of in the top right where your profile is located.

    Need a good view in MAG for summary of permissions like Azure Commercial.

  18. Bring Documentation link button to every resource Overview blade

    Hi.
    It would be good to provide "Documentation" button to every resource overview blade.
    In case of Storage account, it could be; Open in Explorer / Move / Documentation / Delete.

  19. Proper searching for VMs based on Size and other VM fields

    The current search is woefully inadequate. Check how AWS makes the portal usable, and allows ability to search resources with regex even.

  20. Add an indicator to the portal page title to show that an update is running, to prevent constant tab flipping

    When doing an update, the little bell icon has a running indicator to show that an update is in progress. But very often an update is connected to something going on in another browser tab - so I find myself quite often switching back to the Azure portal page to check if the update has finished.

    If you add an indicator to the title element of the portal page that shows that there are still pending updates, that would prevent the constant flipping between tabs.
