Recycle bin for accidentally deleted azure resources
It would good if we could have ability to restore accidentally deleted resources from Azure Portal. Feature like recycle bin could really help user to restore accidentally deleted resources from azure.

I very recently had a cx who had deleted multiple app service plans with multiple apps in each but had no idea the names of the apps or the resources used. Azure does keep these deletes for 30 days but it's very difficult to identify and recover the applications without knowing the names or all the resources the apps used. For example, if you identify an app and try to restore it, if that app uses a gateway, then the restore fails. It took hours but I was able to at least recover the apps and the files but could not recover the configuration. My subsequent research showed that AWS and Google Cloud have a much easier process of identifying and recovering accidentally deleted resources. We need this functionality.
This is definitely helpful for those new to Azure and working towards a certificate. Everyone makes mistakes. might free up support teams as well.

This could be a useful feature to recover deleted objects/RG and restore them. Can be very handy if someone mistakenly deletes a VM with crucial DB running or have important data. Also, if account has been compromised and someone deletes data then it can be recovered. To further protect Recycle bin so an intruder does not delete data from there we can have MFA to access Recycle bin.
Pretty important. Please work on this
This is very important and critical. +999. Especialy to VMs and Database, where data restoration or accidentially deleted, or if your microsoft account has been compormised, and the hacker delete all the resources (delete entire resource group) then the real owner can restore or retrieve it back. Imagine production servers.

When a resource is deleted should be usefull if it's possible to restore it within one week (for example).
This should have been done ages ago.
I'm not sure why MS isn't providing this...

It would be nice to have this in the GUI, but for now, a webapp can be restored via Azure PowerShell: https://ruslany.net/2019/06/how-to-restore-a-deleted-azure-web-app/

Have more resources been added for recovery?
Currently it is possible to restore a deleted app by using powershell. This article explains how to do that: https://ruslany.net/2019/06/how-to-restore-a-deleted-azure-web-app/

It would great if we have restore options to deleted resources and resource groups. GCP has already provided such a feature. I hope we would get it.

has this been implemented ? One of my colleagues has accidently deleted the entire resource group
Ibrahim Aremu commented
Could be temporal. A container that keeps deleted resource for a week or there about.

Deleting Resource Group in ARM should send in Recycle Bin
Microsoft had given very good feature of having control over resources using Resource Group Feature. I am raising this request because sometime while performing clean up activities, there is chances of deletion of Resource Group. There is no such feature to get them restore if it's got deleted by mistake.
They should incur this feature of sending it to recycle bin for atleast 7 days so that Engineer can retrieve it back if needed with in that 7 days.
Instead of deleting it completely all the resources while erasing resource group it should send to some recycle-bin so that if someone want to retrieve it can restore it back within stipulated time lines.
You can refer to feature which is there in Google Cloud.
** You can shut down projects using the GCP Console or the projects.delete() method.
Shutting down a project does not delete the project immediately; it only requests deletion of the project. The project is marked for deletion ("soft deleted"), and you will lose access to it immediately, but the project can be recovered for a 30 day period. Until actual deletion of the project, the project will count towards your quota usage.
The project owner will receive an email notification that the project has been marked for deletion. During the 30 day period, the owner can recover the project by following the steps to restore a project. After the 30 day period, the project and all the resources under it are deleted and cannot be recovered. While most resources can be recovered during the 30 day period, Cloud Storage begins deleting resources before the 30 day recovery period ends, and these resources may not be fully recoverable."**

any updates? it is really great to have a delete history.....
would be great to have 'deleted history'

That would be useful, if you would like other than skilled technicians to users your services. We are many that just want to use. And sometimes test. A "trash can" for restore the nest 24 hours would be great. To restore a deleted Azure Resource. You could say I should had backup. Yes, if I knew how it worked and how to set it up. On a service like Azure I assumed it was a backup.
I was not able to restore what I deleted.
