Rename Resource Groups

Need the ability to rename resource groups either via PowerShell or the new portal.

        I can't believe that this is still an issue. This is just the label, not the ID and still we have to go through a full move?

        This seems like such an easy implementation and one that is very much needed!

        This was one of the first things that came up after we began our AZ buildout - I am surprised that this is not possible, seems pretty simple - and YES, NOT ALL RESOURCES CAN BE MOVED.

        Seriously? Not all resources can be moved between resource groups! The request is a necessity when managing large Azure subscriptions. The man hours users waste managing this limitation are far greater than those required to provide us with a solution. The delay has been agonizing, and the refusal inexcusable.

        So basically you asked users to do your homework for you and then ignored their answers. So where do I delete my worthless account?

        And why the heck anyone should care about these votings if most voted thing gets sacked? You should put a note somewhere, saying - please create request for new feature and vote for it, but keep in mind that for any number of votes, 99% ***** will be given to implement it.

        What a disappointing response to the highest voted issue for the Resource Manager team.

        Can you please give us some details as to why this is so complicated to implement? Isn't the name just stored once against the resource group itself? Surely items are linked to resource groups by GUID rather than name?

        Azure: could you not build a workflow and map it to a button where AZURE creates a new resource and then moves the items from the old resource into the new resource with provided new or existing name then would delete the old resource... titling this button 'Rename Resource'?!

        We would appreciate the automation from Azure's side.

        Clear and disapointing! More than three thousand votes is not enough to make Azure Microsoft move.

        After years … the same answer. You cant move all type of resources in a resource group. and also, it takes a long time to execute depending the number of resoruces and type when its possible.

        What a great recommendation! Right up there with using CDN for custom domain + ssl instead of regular blob storage. SMH

      • ormico commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        not a valid alternative since there are many cases where you can't just mass move all resources and when you do stuff can break.

        Lol i voted for this when I owned Nimbo. I later solid the business to Equinix and am now the CTO at 10th Magnitude. Thanks ... for the ... update. 😆

        Wow, closed after 4 years, and with thousands of votes!

        Surely resource groups are identified internally by something like a GUID?

        At the very least, couldn't you have a 'rename' feature that behind the scenes just creates a new group, moves resources to it, then deletes the old one?

        Unplanned, but not rejected, there's still hope...maybe in another 5 years we'll get some traction on this.
