  1. ARM template Resource type parity documentation across Commercial, Gov, other environments

    In addition to the resource status monitor (https://status.azure.com/en-us/status), knowing what ARM resources types are supported across environments. It seems that some types have schemas, but aren't supported in templates. As an example Microsoft.Web/sites/publicCertificates had a schema but still wasn't supported until late August 2018 (https://github.com/Azure/azure-functions-ux/issues/3019).

    I've attached an example of what I'm looking for. Other icons could be used if there are catches for a specific environment such as a property can't be used in one environment vs another.

  3. Allow unicode/emoji in resource group names

    Our service is a management layer over azure, providing our customers with an app which creates azure resources in our subscriptions under resource groups that represent their accounts.

    We would like to create related resource groups associated with these "customer representing" resource groups that would be used for things such as testing, mirroring etc. We'd like to create these resource groups with a similar name, a name that represents what this related resource group is for, and one that wont collide with other resource group names (which are based off of account names).

    To enable this, we'd like to prefix…

  4. request permissions access control

    Add workflow for getting access to resources. I should be able to request access via Access control (IAM) in a resource, and it should go to the owners for approval. This should help streamline and improve efficiency to getting access to resources.

    This is currently supported in dashboards.

  6. to have customized cost allocation report that can filter each tag in seperate column

    I would suggest you have filter that can split the tags column in cost allocation report so that we can have only one tag in a column. Currently it is showing all tags (department, owner, instance type etc,) in just one column.

  7. Provide ability to add documentation to resource groups, keeping important documentation alongside resources. Support md format?

    Provide ability to add documentation to resource groups, keeping important documentation alongside resources. Support md format? Docx? I'd even take txt.

    This would allow teams to include instructions, user guides, release changes, etc., that would be important for an organization to provide a unified locations for all project resources, including documentation.

  9. Recycle Bin

    Over time it's likely that we'll end up with 'unknown' resources in our Azure environments e.g. a developer is testing out some new Azure resources and forgets to remove the resources.

    If we delete these Azure resources then we it might cause issues to other teams within our organization, however if we keep them they will continue to consume $$$. It's a catch 22 situation.

    It would be great if we had 'recycle bin' capabilities to allow us to 'restore' a recently deleted resource from Azure. Ideally, items would be sent to the recycle bin upon deletion and then automatically…

  10. Azure Deployment Manager integration with Azure DevOps

    Would like the ability to utilize Azure Deployment Manager from within Azure DevOps. Along with this we should be able to use the Azure DevOps SPN connections to deploy and use Azure GIT repos as template sources. Would like the option to specify a different repository for parameter files and/or runtime parameters (basically have a a template files repo and a parameters file repo that can be referenced for each resource deployment)

  11. My Azure Portal is a MESS!

    My portal still shows every resource/group/service I've every played with. Deleting and disabling don't clear the clutter. I find it hard to focus with so much old junk in the way! Please make it disappear!

  12. Allow comments/remarks within JSON Templates everywhere

    At the moment you only can add comments at the resource section, it would be great if you could add comments/remarks everywhere.

  13. Specify only subscriptionId for linked ARM subscription deployment template

    In an ARM template, currently if you specify the subscriptionId property for a deployment resource (linked template) you must also specify the resourceId property. This is completely nonsensical if the linked template is a subscription deployment, as there is no need to specify a resource group.

  14. Make delete and delete resource buttons easier to distinguish in ARM

    I am opening this request on behalf of customer.

    The similarity of the icons, location, and words on those two buttons is dangerous. it's the difference between removing a single resource of interest and potentially deleting thousands of irrecoverable resources. It should be far harder to accidentally delete the entire resource group.

  15. Validation for move should allow validatition by resource group

    Moving resources between subscriptions is set up to point us toward moving entire resource groups. But the REST API to validate does not support passing a resource group. It should.

  16. Remove hard coded tenantId and objectId in exported ARM template from Resource Group

    How do you deal with ARM templates when you have hard coded tenantId and objectId in them?

    Let's say I have web apps, sql databases, key vault, storage, services bus, ... with managed identities, theses ids are therefore used.

    Could the export of the templates remove the references to these ids?
    As far as I investigated, it seems that the operation must be performed manually.

    Many thanks.

  17. create an all use ARM template to download resources from a resource group in .json formto be used in another location

    The customer would be able to download all available resources in .JSON format and be able to upload in another location, all policies, rules, and metrics should be transferable to other regions as well as parent region.

  19. Highlight changes when modifying REST API

    When changing REST API's the Microsoft Docs article needs to more clearly highlight the specific changes that were make.

    As an example:
    The Enterprise Portal to download the monthly Detailed report (https://consumption.azure.com/v3/enrollments/$enrollmentnumber/usagedetails) went from giving all data with v2 to only giving 1000 rows with v3, and having to call a 'nextlink' to get the additional 1000 rows. A fundamental change to how the API works.

  20. Use dependency ordering when deleting multiple resources

    When deleting multiple resources, ensure that deletions are done in the proper dependency ordering such that one doesn't get errors during the deletion process.

    Further recommendation would be to track user-created objects and allow them to be deleted directly. If I create a single higher level object (e.g. CloudFoundry instance), it will create dozens of underlying Azure objects. I don't have an option to delete the original object, instead I need to delete the base objects in the proper dependency order. Furthermore, I may unintentionally delete an unconnected object (e.g. a diagnostic storage account) used by unrelated objects.
