  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. How about something more informative than "something went wrong"?

    The portal shows that "Something went wrong," but really, that's not helpful. I think it's trying to show a virtual machine that no longer exists, but how is anyone supposed to figure that out if the message is as vague as "something."

  5. Allow group policy to be managed from Azure

    It should be possible to manage group policies from Azure.

    As per the comments at the bottom of this thread, it's not possible.

  6. Hide Email in Upper Right

    To help comply with anti-doxxing patterns, it would be nice to have the option to hide email in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

    I'm recording/streaming coding content and wish to show some Azure work without giving away my email. Options like "Name only", "Name and Email", or "Email only" would save me a lot of effort

  10. 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.

  11. Unsaved changes to a dashboard blocks basic features

    When using a shared dashboard and just testing changes/and or just wanting to change the timespan temporarily, the dashboard says there are unpublished changes and this blocks MANY features, like being able to make further edits, full screen, SEARCH, etc. There is no reason for a change to block so many features, especially if I want the change just locally for a short time.

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which 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.

  12. Allow group member list to be alphabetically sorted

    When viewing the list of users in a group it looks like users are sorted by the order they where added to the group. Please add the ability for customized sorting, e.g. by username.

  14. Allow users to control Azure Portal Dashboards expiration time and make dashboards usable

    Dashboards with it's current session expiration timeout are pretty much useless to be user as office dashboards and status monitoring. Most of the time session expires too soon and Office TVs show a "session expired, please refresh" message. Putting the tab with a dashboard on a cyclic refresh (e.g. "refresh this tab every 20 seconds") is not an option at all - new portal loading speed is horrendous, and the tab is cycled out from a view faster than it manages to display any useful diagrams or alerts.

    This was not an issue in the past and came only in…

  15. Get rid of Delegated admin for CSP as a requirement, make an escalation route or allow proper security controls and monitoring

    We have recently switched from MPSA to CSP. Now our CSP is advising that they need a delegated admin in your environment to manage our billing. We can remove the licenses and add them to the users but to remove them or add them from the tenant they must do that and in order to do that they need a full rights delegated admin which is a GA.

    HOW IS THIS ACTUALLY A THING!!!!! Third party with full GA in our environment with no sort of security controls, password policies or anything in place. We don't want to be another…

  17. allow Work accounts to change Azure ADs for a Subscription

    Here is one thing we find extremely annoying: Even though many of the Classic Portal features are getting ported to the new Portal, the ability to change the Azure AD for a Subscription is not available, yet. As if this would not be enough, it still requires a Personal Microsoft account. It's impossible with Microsoft Work accounts.

    We are managing multiple Subscriptions in a single account and have a team - all with Work accounts - managing it. It is a shame, that we need to keep one Personal account, just because Work accounts cannot be used to associate Azure…

  18. Easier deployment and updating multiple apps in Intune

    I want to deploy the same applications (e.g. OneDrive) to multiple platforms - Android for Business, Android, and iOS. Currently, this requires creating, configuring, and assigning a separate application for each one. With many applications, this becomes very time consuming and pointless. I would like to see either a way to combine multiple "deployment types" for each platform into one application to assign to users, or at least a way to bulk assign these applications so updating group assignment is not so cumbersome.

  19. Sorting the virtual machines based on running status.

    In the portal.azure.com, when we view the virtual machine resources, it is getting listed by the name of the VM, status, resource group, location, subscription. Where we are allowed to sort the resources by name, location, resource group, location, subscription but not by the status. It would be great if we have this. This will help the infra maintenance engineers while collecting data from the portal

  20. Allow Incremental Deployment of ARM templates

    When deploying a template via URI (http://portal.azure.com/#create/Microsoft.Template.....), allow through a parameter or other mechanism the ability to deploy in either Complete or Incremental mode. It appears as though it only wants to do Complete.

    This is an issue in that you cannot put a storage account in a template with a server build, where you intend multiple servers to utilize the same storage. The second, and subsequent, builds fail validation through the portal saying that the storage already exists. When run via powershell, it deploys fine.
