  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  6. fix the looping session timeout

    While browsing the options for my new azure account the portal session timed out (not expected because I was clicking on things). The option to login and continue refreshed the screen, but was immediately followed by the session timing out again. This repeated a half dozen times until I finally was able to click the logout menu item before the time our. Windows live then complained that it failed to log me out of several services. I kept trying with the same behavior. At one time windows live suggested I close my browser and clear my cookies. Huh?

    I think…

  7. Microsoft CDN overwrites client IP-address

    We had few days ago an attack on our website and to detect the IP address from aggressor, we enabled the client IP tracking in Application Insights.

    Information about enabling:
    https://apmtips.com/blog/2016/07/05/client-ip-address/
    https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/azure/azure-monitor/app/ip-collection

    To deliver efficiency the webpage content, do we use Microsoft CDN instead direct traffic on web app.

    Dataflow schema:
    1. Browser > CDN (content expired) > web app

                                         |
    
    Browser < CDN (content updated) <

    Standard dataflow:
    1. Browser > web app

                |
    
    Browser <

    We detected, that the in AI tracked client Ip-address is when we use the Microsoft CDN the ip address of Microsoft Frontdoor application.…

  8. Ability to Sort Azure Devices by Column

    The Device List in Azure does not have any capability for sorting by column. Seems like this should be an easy no-brain feature. Currently I have to copy and paste to Excel just to sort by column...

  9. Allow horizontal scrolling on a pageable grid

    The way that Scrolling is currently implemented, it forces both a vertical and horizontal scrolling.
    We would like to use paging for getting more rows, and horizontal scrolling to enable the user to add many columns, and still see them clearly.

  12. 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.

  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.

  16. Allow to change & permanently save predefined Time range in Azure dashboard

    This is a big problem for us as this dashboard is used by our incident management team, who is watching this screen, which is auto-refreshed each 15 minutes and time range is always set back to predefined custom range.

  17. In Dashboard, custom timespan does not work correctly for App Insight query tiles

    In Dashboard, normally the timespan of the tiles is defined at dashboard-level, but this can be overridden on a per-tile basis.

    However, the "from date" does not behave correctly when it's earlier than 1 month from today, even though the UI is correct.

    For example, today is 26th Feb, and if I set the from date to any date before 27th Jan (e.g. 1st Jan), it will use 27th Jan to perform the query instead.

    This makes the custom timespan useless for many use cases.

  19. Programatically configure Azure Portal favorites

    When onboarding new users, I'd like to be able to set a default set of favorites in the portal for a particular user or group, ideally programatically.

    This would afford more control over the onboarding experience (we could remove things that are universally denied by policy, or introduce grades of user (novice and expert) and therefore be able to tailor the default setup accordingly.
