  1. Allow again to use of the mouse to drag panels

    A few months ago the panels could be moved by dragging the Mouse horizontally. Now this is not possible with any browser and to be able to move in a normal PC, you have to make use of the horizontal Scroll bar. This is very frustrating and very slow when using the portal daily

    • Bot registration unusable after migration

      Migrated my bot registration to Azure, and now I cannot manage it!
      I just migrated my bot registration to Azure, and now I cannot manage it! Most of the options like TestInWebchat just show an error "There was an error refreshing your sign-in information. Refresh and try again."

      Why? Shouldn't it be working smoothly?

      And what the heck is a "Bot Channels Registration"? This is a bot registration, not a channel... BTW My botframework service is running in Azure as well - why can't I just mark my service as a bot directly?

      Please, stop introducing confusing names.

      • session timeout

        The Azure management portal does not have session time out settings. That means, when user has logged into management portal and leaves the browser page untouched (idle) even for few hours and then gets back in, the session still stays active (without getting logged out or asking the user to re-login) which is a security concern. Is this an existing bug ? If so please get it fixed.

        • Fix signing in in Safari

          Can't sign in via Safari.
          It is a good idea to fix this.

          • Case sensitive in Tags

            The names of the Tags will automatically change to lowercase when tagging SQL Servers and Data Factories which causes inconsistency in Tags. Please consider case sensitivity in Tags or NOT automatically changing to lowercase to all resources.

            • multiple triggers

              Multiple triggers cannot be viewed in Logic App Designer. I was working on a logic app that was supposed to allow me to watch multiple Trello dashboards and run some logic whenever a new card is added to either one. I searched for how to use multiple triggers and came across this answer on stack overflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32393394/is-it-possible-to-have-multiple-triggers-in-azure-logic-apps#answer-37410286 while this can be saved, it can only be managed in code view. Clicking Logic App Designer will show Logic App Code View. Clicking Designer will show an empty Blade view.

                • when signed into account A, log out and sign in to account B, account A still shows in portal

                  Although this shows as completed in another report, it is not.

                  I have (gack!) 3 accounts -- a "Personal Microsoft Account" me@business.com, a "Workplace" Microsoft Account me@business.com and a "Personal Microsoft Account" me@hotmail.com.

                  My MSDN Azure subscription was previously associated with me@hotmail.com. If I am logged in with my "Personal" me@business.com and visit the portal, it displays me@business.com. I then click log out and choose me@hotmail.com. the Portal reloads and displays me@business.com.

                  • Blob metadata always lowercased on the portal, but actual keys may not

                    When updating blob's metadata I noticed that keys are always displaying lowercased on the portal, but actual keys may not be lowercased! For example, 'Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer' shows the correct info, but the portal is not. It's very confusing! It's basically saying that portal is not displaying a valid info.

                    I attach the screenshot where the left side is portal and right side is 'Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer'.

                    • Issue in renew-authorisation for stream analytics output - for datalake store

                      I am trying to set up (deploy) a stream analytics job with data lake store as output using terraform. Terraform internally call the Azure API (through Azure Go SDK) for stream analytics to set the datalake store output that expects a refresh token.

                      As per the API documentation, it is recommended to put a dummy string value here when creating the data source and then going to the Azure Portal to authenticate the data source which will update this property with a valid refresh token. Hence, I passed a "dummy" string as refresh token, and I could see the datalake…

                        • add view console feature to the VM which will help IT admins to view the status of the machines in case of crash or failure situations

                          add view console feature to the VM which will help IT admins to view the status of the machines in case of crash or failure situations as a free member, I faced RDP issues for few machines I deployed and RDP didn't work. If we have a console like VMware or Hyper-V, it would help to see if the machine is deployed properly.

                          • New Account, no subscriptions?

                            I signed up for the free account but my profile portal says I have no subscriptions. When I try any Azure service it prompts me to follow a link enter a subscription and when I click the link it tells me I already have a subscription. I'm a bit confused.

                            • Hash signs (#) not allowed in email address at 'Start Free'

                              I'm trying to start 'Free' on Azure and thus need a Microsoft Live account for our department.

                              When (attempting) to create that account, our email address with a leading hash sign (#) is being rejected as 'invalid email address'.

                              It's a real email, externally available (used for diverse subscriptions by a specific department).

                              • Dashboard need to be more userfriendly

                                consider you are in the vm blade and you click on the dashboard icon. It will return to the dashboard.
                                and your vm is listed in the dashboard.
                                if you click on the vm icon again from the dashboard, it wont redirect to the vm blade,
                                if you want to access the vm , then
                                1* you have to click any other controls or links from the dashboard.
                                2* click the dashboard again
                                3* click the vm icon, now you are on the vm blade.

                                need to improve..,

                                  • Portal not working on Chrome 54 (latest)

                                    Chrome just self updated (Version 54.0.2840.71 m) and in the azure portal I see only the first row in every table

                                    If I inspect the HTML all rows are there but they are not visible (except the first one)

                                    I've tried clearing out the cache completely and starting fresh in an incognito session, to no avail

                                    Downloaded Chrome 53 and the issue disappeared. Problem is Chrome doesn't really allow downgrading: I need to run Chrome 53 as a standalone exe... a bit annoying

                                    I'm on Win10 latest

                                    • The dashboard on safari just continually reloads

                                      When trying to view the dashboard in safari on an iMac it continually reloads the page. As soon as it has finished loading it clears it starting again. This makes it unusable as you can imagine.
