  1. provide an ability to query metrics APIS by resource groups and tags

    This ability is required to restrict the response to a particular resource group or tag on a set of resources.
    This could be required when integrating Azure with an APM like Dynatrace or other tools.

    Currently, all metrics are returned irrespective of the resource group or the custom tag in the query, polluting one environment with data from the others that are hosted in the same subscription.

  2. Allow us to Stop an entire Resource Group

    I'd like to be able to stop (and start) all resources in a resource group where resources can be stopped with a single button in the portal.

    The use-case is development stuff, things I'm learning. It'd be nice to just turn it off and feel safe that I am not inadvertently consuming resources.

  3. Better error handling, reporting

    When deploying linked ARM templates, the user gets below error:
    "status": {

       "value": "Failed",
    
    "localizedValue": "Failed"

    },
    "subStatus": {

       "value": "InternalServerError",
    
    "localizedValue": "Internal Server Error (HTTP Status Code: 500)"

    },

    On further investigation, found that 2 parameters were not being substituted with values. Once those 2 parameters were addressed, the deployment went successful.

    Can we please have a more verbose error description displayed instead of plain "Internal Server Error"?

    Thank you!

  4. Cancel resource movement

    Currently, once you start moving a resource between resource groups, you cannot cancel it.
    In some cases, it takes a long time to move, and if the event described on the left occurs, it will interfere with the work, so we strongly hope to change the function so that you can cancel the movement.

  5. About resource locking when moving resources between resource groups

    Currently, when moving a resource between resource groups, the resources in the source and destination resource groups are locked.
    We strongly recommend that you change the function so that resources that are not related to the movement are not locked when moving between resource groups.

  6. Filter returned resource groups by role definitions?

    I'm trying to make a GET request to list all of the available resource groups by the authenticated user's Role Assignment; in this case, "contributor".

    I've looked at listing role assignments but I can't seem to use "contributor" as a filter when requesting a list of resource groups.

  7. Page to check ongoing interventions

    Have a page that indicates if a maintenance is ongoing on our instance.

    Today, in case of issues with one of the API's, we cannot assess if a maintenance task @ azure causes the unavailability. (Eg. on Dev tier)

    With a page (eg. per resource group) indicating ongoing maintenance on the instances components (eg. virtualisation layer) we know that we have to wait till the maintenance is finished rather than starting incident mgt our side or debugging our code.

  8. to make Custom ARM Template available in the Deployment Section of the Resource Group even if the Subscription get suspended

    As the subscription get suspended, in the deployment section of the resource group the Template gets unavailable or unresponsive without any error just the Template shows "Generating Template..." and also the redeploy option get unresponsive. All of the options are responsive like "Overview", "Input", "Output" but "Template" shows "Generating Template...". Further "Redeploy" option should work because as in Custom Template there is an option to change the Subscription but it gets Unresponse. Although the template is just a CODE a static content what it would be charging?

  10. Please fix the schemas, fighting with tooling is hard

    Hello,


    1. Schemas are outdated in Visual Studio tooling

    2. Enabling static web sites and default documents does not work

    3. Enabling connection string setting mapping to Key Vault secrets does not work, need to use appsettings instead

    4. newGuid in params does not work with schema validation VS2019

    5. reference ( , , 'Full') is not recognized by schema validator in VS2019
      in addition:

    6. Azure AD PowerShell has dependencies on PowerShell desktop, like WindowsForms... Do we need that? Can we just stick with PS Core?

    7. Consistent documentation of what supported by tool: REST, Az PowerShell, Az CLI, is nonexistent

    Can we improve a little…

  11. Trim tag names entered in the Portal UI

    Please trim the names of tag names entered in the Portal UI. We have encountered issues and policy violations because unintentional spaces were included in the tag names. These spaces are common because the required tags are copied and pasted from other sources, so it's been a common problem.

    There should be no reason not to trim the names. What customer would actually want a name of " applicationId" instead of a trimmed "applicationId" name... this feels like a no-brainer. :)

  12. [Request] Suggession on Deployment Modes in Azure

    Hi Microsoft Team,

    I really appreciate the Microsoft efforts for rapidly catching up market for Azure.
    I have little suggestion over here for Azure Dev ops CI/CD using ARM Templates.There are two options given for deployment mode. i.e "Incremental" and "Complete".

                        "Complete" Mode of deployment deletes the existing services under that Resource Group. Even though it will be useful to discard unwanted services, still it is very dangerous. 'An Err is Human.' By mistake if this option is selected in pipline then all the services will be deleted and its difficult to restore it. This leads to raising support tickets

  13. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
