  1. Azure Portal Templates should be backed by a Git Repo

    Azure Portal Templates should be backed by a Git/AzDO repo with support for labels and branching.

    Having Templates without version history makes working in a modern auditing environment challenging.

    Currently, we have our templates in a Git repo, then cut and paste them to the Azure Portal for deployment. This exposes us to audit issues when we cannot trace back who made changes to our IoC and forces us to use third party solutions rather than Azure Portal Templates.

  2. Provide support for portal.azure.com

    When something seems to be broken in the Azure portal itself (https://portal.azure.com), there is no avenue to get support from Microsoft.
    If Microsoft expects customers to use https://portal.azure.com to manage resources they are already paying for, Microsoft should provide support for https://portal.azure.com withing requiring an additional paid support plan. Paying for Azure resources should include support for https://portal.azure.com.

  4. Make Help-Center of Azure Portal work!!!

    It is insane that Microsoft created the portal for communication with the customers, and this point of contact does not work.

    As the Azure expert did a great job and has provided a proper solution with print-screens - we should be able to see them.

    Analysis:
    The MS Expert had use an email to respond (guess: the tickets are delivered via email?), where he could use rich-text or HTML email formatting. The portal displays pure TEXT so no attachments are available.

    This is to put it nicely - LAME - as it is a Microsoft who has delivered this non-functioning…

  5. make dropdown menus and allow us to select keys and addresses instead of having us use a notepad to keep track of what we made.

    I have to keep a notepad to keep track of my connection strings and keys. It's very confusing sometimes to figure out what to fill in text fields. It would be great to have a meaningful contextual name or the string itself prepopulated in a dropdown or searchable dropdown menu to pick from instead.

  8. No Session Timeout

    Logged in session remain active even not in use for whole day which is a security risk, which should have a timeout to avoid any security incident.

  9. Create a separate Azure account type for B2B users

    Not sure if this already covered somewhere else but....

    Azure account types should be: 1) User; 2) B2B, 3) Guest.

    Trying to manage permission for B2B users is not working as well as it could in Azure. We need to be able to manage access for B2B users whilst not impacting access restrictions on Guest users (vice versa).

  10. Portal.Office.com - Switch Directory on the fly for B2B users (Like Portal.Azure.com)

    The directory switch for Portal.Azure.com is great please add same function for Portal.Office.com

    This will make things much less confusing for people who are in multiple tenants!

    Please incorporate AzureRM Powershell and CLI within the portal itself. Please provide 2 icons for thesame within theportal for easy access.

    Next you can add the icon for the Azure Resource Explorer with inbuilt searches eg: View details of Scalesets in my subscription

  12. Full control of azure portal with voice commands like iron man.

    Including answering questions regarding resources being used and closing billing transactions. I want to speak to an AI that will do it all.

  16. The Language translation bar should put on top of the page.

    As many of the individuals are seeking local language pages, people don't know the button exists, which would be better on the top banner, so people can know it and convert it into their home language right away.

  17. Thin provisioned disks. Reduce the size of a disk

    I do not like the fact there are no thin provisioned disks.

    Moreover you can not even reduce the size of the disk

    I do not like these supposed "gotchas" which can cost a lot more money

    127GB standard for a O/s drive for example is a complete overkill

    I will also explore whether defaults can be changed for such things as location so things do not point to the US if you are based in the UK for example. Instructor today told me no in training.

  18. Allow for more verbose sorting in new portal lists

    At present you are not able to sort by all columns in the new Azure portal. For instance if you are in the Network Interface blade you can only sort by Resource Group, not by IP/Subnet, not by vNet or VM attached too. Can this be changed?

  20. Make a note during Azure Log-In that clearing your browser cache/cookies is helpful for the best possible Azure user experience.

    As an Azure support specialist, I can say easily 15-20% of our issues come down to stale cache, causing portal irregularities that are fixed by trying in a different browser/clearing cache and cookies. Let people know up front that 'For the best Azure experience possible, we suggest clearing your cache (insert link how to do so for all browsers) before logging in'. That would be spectacular. If only 10% of people see that, we still reduce our work load by a significant value, and we can refer them back to that message, letting them know we have their best experience…
