If GUIDs for MGs could be auto-generated optional this would be a great user experience as currently having to provide your own GUID isn't the best experience.17 votes
Our team is looking into a way we can create a MGID field that is auto guid generated. This would mean the current Name field which is used as the unique key will not be used after that GUID is implemented. Since this is a GA service there are multiple up/down stream changes we are costing on how we can make these changes.

When adding a new subscription to a directory that has resource groups enabled the new subscription wizard should ask if you want to add the subscription to an existing resource group or create a new one.
Would even be nice if as an admin you can toggle an option in teh directory to require subscriptions be added to a management group.
This just simplifys the management as currently we have to tell everyone to "remember" to do this and stuck cleaning up a mess when it is not done.9 votes
Thanks Brett for the feedback. We are looking into building features that do both of those items. 1) Have the management group selection at subscription creation, 2) Custom rules that allow admins to control where subscriptions default when they are created.
In Management Groups
- Adding a subscription to a management group.
Replace dropdown with a view so you can select multiple subscriptions and also see to which MG a subscription belongs.
Also filter by MG group there and also view all subscriptions that does not belong to a MG currently.7 votes
We are working closely with the UI design team to develop a better hierarchy selection tool. This will be a standard view that can be used across the portal. I don’t have a timeline yet that I can share.
New-AzManagementGroupSubscription should not move a sub that already is in a ManagementGroup
Steps to reproduce
New-AzManagementGroupSubscription -SubscriptionId 12345-x-x-x -GroupName MyNewMG
If sub 12345-x-x-x already exists under an MG, this should throw an error. This command makes it way to easy to break established hierarchy.
Possibly there could be a parameter -FORCE that utilized current behavior.2 votes
