  1. Provide functionality to automatically generate SAS token when using https://portal.azure.com/#create/Microsoft.Template

    We use the Azure DSC extension to invoke a configuration which downloads software from an Azure Files share. Unfortunately, we must either generate a SAS token in advance using powershell or entrust many administrators with one of the two owner access keys. It would be nice if there was a way for the custom create page or json ARM template language to have the ability to generate a temporary SAS token on the fly without leaving the custom create page.

  2. Dashboard tile auto arrangements

    The locations of the tiles on the dashboard can easily become a mess. It would be great to have the same experience as in Windows 8 with the start screen (automatic tile arrangement, preview of the new tile arrangement when moving tiles, etc.).

  3. Export and Import Favorites List

    We are working with many different Tenants. I would like to export and import my Favorites from a Tenant to another. I can imagine that that helps also other admins.

    And if possible you can store the favorites in the CSP Tenant, so that I don't need to export/import first for a CSP admin. If I a network admin, I need the same Favorites for that in each customer tenant.

  4. Make names of the pinned items on Dashboard editable

    Make names of the pinned items on Dashboard editable.
    For examples I have pipelines section pinned from different data factories on dashboard it would be good if I can name them differently. In general it would be easy if I can rename components pinned on Dashboard.

  5. Tie dashboards to user, not directory

    I manage multiple subscriptions across directories. When I log into Azure I want to see, at a glance:
    1) a dashboard where I can put production services from all directories I am part of, so I can see *all* systems' status info without opening multiple tabs
    2) a dashboard where I can put dev/test service info from an MSDN subscription in our organization's directory, right next to production service info from our client's directory

  6. Support for paging on tiles

    Taking the Billing tile on the dashboard: the billing information is being automatically cycled between the subscriptions, but it would be good if the user could just cycle between them or pause the auto-cycling.

  7. Portal page title should include unread notification count and/or use Web Notifications API

    The title of the portal should include the number of unread notifications (much like a number of webmail sites do for new emails).
    Furthermore, if your browser supports W3C Web Notifications ( http://www.w3.org/TR/notifications/ ) we should be using those too.

  8. Search resource based on dns name or ip address

    Because azure now support custom dns name, is just so hard to find a resource based on them in the azure portal. It would be nice to be able to search any resouce based on the dns name or even better search them by using the ip address.

  9. Important announce should use notification in azure.

    Important announce is not use blog, but should use notification in azure.

    Now, I can not use TCP 25port because I migrated subscription to MSDN.

    Recentry I read this blog.
    https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/mast/2017/11/15/enhanced-azure-security-for-sending-emails-november-2017-update/

    If this announce would be not blog, but would be notification in azure, I didn't migrate my subscription.

    I hope important announce will be notification in azure because I can not notice blog released.

  10. Create tree view in Portal for subscriptions, resource groups and resources

    I'd like an easy way to quickly explore my deployed Azure services using a tree view like the left hand pane in Windows Explorer.
    I would expect the tree view to start at my current top level. By which I mean if I can see multiple subs then that would be the first layer of the tree, then resource groups, then resources.
    Clicking a resource will open the blade for that resource.

  11. UI for Resource Policy Management and Policy Aware for resource creation in portal

    Azure Resource Policy is a great feature for enterprise customers to enforce their resources in a compliant state. However, there is no user interface to view policy definitions and assignments in a given scope. Also, the UI don't respect policy at all but only give an error after the deployment is submitted.

  15. Tile background color

    It would be useful if we could assign a background color to tiles. This could be used in visualizing/categorizing services, customers or various deployment stages. Imagination really.

    See attached screenshot.
    Mabye as a start?

  16. Allow scrolling the multiple blades that are open using the mouse scroll wheel.

    When there is multiple blades/panes open and the horizontal scroll bar shows up, it woule be good if we can scroll from left to right using the vertical mouse scroll wheel.

    If the blade/pane under the cursor has content that needs to be vertically scrolled, vertical scroll has the priority, once it reaches the limit, then scroll horizontally depending on the direction.

  17. More color options for portal

    I think it's great for me to switch colors between subscriptions as I have been added to some customer subscriptions so I can set different set of colors based on which subscription is being used.

    Currently you offer only 4 different schemes - there should be a lot more plus an option to customize (if I want a pink theme, please let me have it - with unicorns :)) This would be a great visual differentiator between subscriptions as I need to switch between them all the time just to remind me what I'm working with (e.g. green = development,…

  18. Create deep links at subscription level, enabling users with multiple subscriptions to bookmark specific subscriptions

    Create deep links at subscription level, enabling users with multiple subscriptions to bookmark specific subscriptions.

    Nowadays, even using multiple Chrome profiles, it's hard to manage multiple subscriptions under the same MSA or AAD account. Service providers, consultants and support engineers could benefit from deep links on the interface, enabling them to bookmark specific subscriptions.

    Filtering helps, but doesn't solve usability problems. It's hard to work with more than 5 subscriptions in the new portal.

  20. Azure AD sign-in activity log should record and show sign-ins from service principal

    Currently, Azure AD sign-in activity log only shows user activities. Sign-ins from service principal (certificate or client id/key) is not recorded. So it is difficult for customers to know if service principal is maliciously used by certificate or key leak.
