  1. Pin to Dashboard - Allow selection of Dashboard when pinning tile

    When pinning a tile to a dashboard, for example the Cosmos Db Throttled Request Metric from Cosmos Db Account via Resource Group. The tile is always pinned to the last dashboard that was created.
    It would be great to click the Pin to Dashboard and then be able to choose which Dashboard to pin the tile to.
    We have a number of dashboards, including one for each customer.

    We have done a lot of improvement on sorting and filtering aspect of “All resources” and tried to add most common filters on UI.

    Are there any specifics you are looking for where we can Improve more on Sorting\Filtering on All resources?

    Thanks,
    Portal Team

  3. Auto refreshing tiles

    Instead of having a button to refresh everything. It would be alot more useful if the tiles would just update with the latest info on its own.

  5. Todo tile, to guide me though action needed

    Notification tells me about things that HAVE happened give me a place to tell me what I need TODO.

    - System generated for things like Credit Card expiring, Cert Expiring etc.
    - Allow users to add TODO from Each Blade - For example Reminder to scale down after Promo ends on 12/15

    Clicking on TODO should take them to where action can be performed

  6. Filter Item Wildcards For Easier Search Capabilities

    When looking at a long list of several resources (all resources or items within a resource group) with long naming conventions there is no easy way to search/filter what you are looking for without spelling out the beginning of the resource.

    It would be convenient to type: %item%prod% to be able to gather all resources containing that specific "item" and in "prod".
    i.e. itemeus1storageprod1

  7. Resource Group Template parameter validation

    With so many different naming limitations between different object types, we need a way to validate parameters before submitting for deployment. An added bonus would be to allow us our own custom validation operations. Please note I am referring to parameter fields in the portal; not variables.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. 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.

  9. Option to have Portal Notifications as Destop Notifications

    Option to have Notifications, like a successful deploy or failed deploy, as a desktop notification.

    This would allow you to leave the portal and do other tasks while waiting for e.g. a large deploy. When the deployment is done you will see the notification on the desktop, while having the portal web page open in the background.

  10. Create a way to do custom reports for Azure Services Tiles

    We have to do many reports (daily, weekly) to send to other teams and customers.
    For example, we need to generate a report to show the capacity of all the Storage Accounts, also its availability etc ... Right now we have to go to each STA, filter by dates, capture a screenshot of those tiles, compose a Powerpoint and send it through mail.
    It would be great to have Azure to have a "reporting" module to compose custom reports instead of all this manual process.

  11. Restrict access to Portal by IP address

    I have heard that many customers want to configure so that administrators can access to Azure management portal from defined IP address ranges.

    I saw the following feedback, but it's actually ip address restriction for "MFA".
    http://feedback.azure.com/forums/223579-azure-preview-portal/suggestions/2297513-restrict-access-to-portal-by-ip-or-rsa-securid
    I want simple restriction capability for management portal access by IP address.

  12. Pin filtered resources to Azure Dashboard

    In Azure you can filter your resources, e.g. resource groups, by certain filters like specific tags. It would be nice to pin that filtered list to your dashboard.
    Currently, it you filter a list in Azure and then pin it to the dashboard, it is pinned without the filters applied. This way you could pin dynamic lists, e.g. all resources tagged with your department tag.

  14. Add information about avarage latency on Location selection blade

    Right now - we have no information on a portal about latency from our current location to azure datacenters.
    For example- I'm in Saudi Arabia now, and based on a map- the closest datacenter to me is in India, but based on this http://www.azurespeed.com/ site- latency to north Europe will be less.

    Please, show me some information on locations selection blade about latency to this datacenter.

    It's important for customers, who is not super experienced with Azure, or who wanna deploy something new for a branch office for example

  15. Disable the ability to create free/trial subscription in Tenant with work or school account

    I want to disable the ability to create free/trial subscription in our Tenant with work or school account, because we don’t want to manage resources created by users in a free/trial subscription.

  16. Custom info in Help

    We are a large enterprise customer utilizing Azure and have some internal teams to help manage Azure as well as support agreements with Microsoft for support (including Azure and Azure development).

    It would be a neat feature in the portal, in the Help area, to be able to customize some text for our own help. For example, I could see us customizing contact info for the EA admin(s), contact info for internal and external (MS) support, links to corporate SharePoint sites with Azure info and other project pages specific, governance/usage info, and billing info. I could see this information set…

  17. Friendly Alias Names

    Allow resources to have a friendly alias name inside the portal. Obviously it will not be used to access the resource, it will just make the portal easier to navigate. Also would only need to be unique to the one portal or subscription.

    I don't mind if my Database is called fdstrdfs but let me find it by Product SQL Server...etc

  18. Make Tags Searchable in portal

    Allow tags to be searchable in the portal just like you are able to for any other resource. Right now the only option to see what resources have tag is via the Tags blade. Being able to search would be very helpful.

  19. Show resource Id in the azure portal too

    Show the azure resource id of all the resources in the properties tab for all the resources. Many users are reluctant to run scripts and should be able to see the resource id directly in the UI.

  20. Validate resource move without moving

    Would like to have the option to validate a resource move (resource group and subscription) without actually moving the resources. This would allow us to troubleshoot any validation error preemptively and thus minimize the service window needed when moving resources.
