  1. Allow search for a VM by public IP address in portal

    When SSL certificates are nearing expiry, I get an email with domain name/s associated with the certificate. Finding the IP address for a domain is easy in a hosting service's interface, but then finding the Azure VM with that IP in the portal is onerous to impossible. When managing large numbers of VMs, being able to filter by public IP address would be a welcome boon.

  2. 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.

  3. Sort "Choose a size" by cost, size, or alphabetically, allow list view

    When creating a virtual machine, the "Choose a size" screen is busy and the default layout is difficult to digest.

    The following would be helpful:
    + Allowing a list view with Name, CPU, Disk, and Price as sortable columns
    + Allow sorting of the tiles by Name, Price, etc
    + Already have a "Recommended" filter; add a "Recently Used" filter

  4. Occasionally a vertical column opens but scrolls right

    Using Chrome, I find that sometimes a new column opens but then the view scrolls to the right so that column is mostly off the screen.

  5. Auto-sort Azure Favorites

    enable auto-sort (alphabetically) the list of items created in my favorites. Manual sort is not useful when you have many favorites created on many directories.

  6. Expand search features to include Computer Name field

    Expand the search features to include the Computer Name field.

    Virtual machine naming standards may change down the road causing a mismatch from the originally created Azure Virtual Machine name. Allowing for searches to include the option of Computer Name, will allow for quicker discovery.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote & comment on. This allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.

  7. 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.

  8. Don't collaps the left hand menu

    If would be nice to be able to disable collapsing the left hand menu. I find myself constantly clicking the "hamburg" button to expand the menu, because I can't remember what the icons mean.

    I think it would be a lot better if the icons were always accompanied by the text label.

  9. Global and Local Subscription Filtering Options

    Here are the problems this would solve:


    • Right now all filtering is global, which is not obvious at first.

      • Going back to a previous journey that used a different filter does not restore the filter. Having this as a local filter to the journey should fix this.




    There could be a “Global Filters” in the left menu bar that you can select and could filter your subscriptions (and maybe other things in the future), or I could see the “Global Filtering” being done in the existing subscriptions menu in the left hand blade, or even changing the portal settings filtering…

  10. 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. Stop showing settings on every item opened

    Currently when I open anything in the portal that has a "Settings" menu as well, the settings menu opens up automatically. It's a pain and I don't want to see it on everything I open - at least give us an option to choose to turn that behavior off rather than making it the default.

  12. Filtering name in Resource Group should also include the hidden-title

    Filtering name in Resource Group overview should also include the hidden-title tag. For Workbook resources, the name is a guid and is not user friendly to filter through.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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?

  19. Ability to search devices using "EAS activation ID" in Intune portal

    In the Ibiza-style Intune portal, you can enter a computer name or device name or UPN in the Filters, but you cannot use "EAS activation ID".

    If a user has 10 devices enrolled under same UPN, such machines may have same computer names, especially if the user plays with VMs or so...
    This makes hard to send a "Reboot or Fresh Start" MDM command to the right machine : you have to ask the user for EAS ID, then click on every identical machine name and compare the EAS ID in the "Hardware" tab.

  20. 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...
