  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  11. Remove the feedback prompt when deleting a Resource Group.

    Or at least have an option available to not be prompted for feedback every time you delete a Resource Group.

    As I am developing solutions in Azure, I have to constantly deploy, delete and redeploy resource groups (and their respective resources) on an almost daily basis.

    While I understand the requirement to get legitimate feedback from customers that remove their Resources from Azure; getting prompted constantly when I do is an annoyance.

  12. Limit what's visible in the portal based on RM policies

    Currently, the Azure portal shows all available resources and all available regions. It would be great if we can curate what's visible in the portal based ARM policies. For instance, if I have a policy that limits what regions I can provision my resources into, the portal should only show the allowable resources. Currently, the user won't know there's a restriction until they try to provision something outside of an allowable region. This causes user frustration, confusion, and most importantly, time.

    Other use cases:
    If I restrict access to only compute, networking, and storage service providers, those should be the…

  14. Custom Branding

    Company branding customizations would be a huge plus! Similarly to how this is possible in the Azure AD sign-in/access pages, would love to have the ability to include a custom logo and/or other branding in the Azure portal itself.

  15. 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."

  17. 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.

  19. Always On should be improved

    The Always On feature in App Services is designed to prevent IIS from sleeping by continually pinging the web endpoint. This works by sending a request to the app service endpoint, port 80, root path (/) but in several scenarios, this doesn't work. 1) If the service is https only 2) If traffic manager is protecting the sites, then TM pings it anyway and always on will instead route via TM and possibly not do what it should do. 3) If the root path is not available (e.g. one of my WCF services doesn't have anything at the root) then…

  20. Provide Rename option to all resources,

    If Azure will provide the rename/edit option to resources, that's good feature. because if any infrastructure changes need then we can't do that, again we have to create new resource with new resource name.please provide option to edit r modify the resource names
