    I've been told that not all resources are able to be moved or have restrictions on being moved. If that is the case the "move the resources into a new resource group" recommendation is a non-starter.

    Tried as suggested but below error

    Resource move is not supported for resource types 'Microsoft.DevTestLab/schedules'. (Code: ResourceMoveNotSupported)

  • Stefan B. Christensen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    App Service Environment's and probably other resources can't be moved they have to be re-deployed. So it still would be a very nice and needed feature

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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!

  • Eric_ATL commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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?

  • Adam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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.

  • Diego commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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.

  • Dimka M commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

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

    Wow. So we waited nearly 5 years for nothing? Nice one.
