  1. Support selection of nodes to remove when scaling down

    Support selection of nodes to remove when scaling down.
    At the moment when you scale down then the oldest nodes will always stay. Would be a nice feature to be able to remove a selected node when scaling down or maybe manually.

  2. Changing Node Size in a kubernetes cluster

    Currently we are able to configure the count for Nodes using scale up option in Portal for AKS, Please add an option to change the size of the Nodes. So if required we can resize the node configuration.

  3. Cluster Autoscaler Integration in portal

    The Cluster Autoscaler(CA) feature which is currently in Preview has CLI support as in the documentation. Is there a backlog item that enables the CA integration in portal as to configure auto scaling policies either during creation of cluster(Day 0) or at a later point of time(Day N ops)?

  4. Make Kubernetes Dashboard available through Azure Portal

    It would be nice if the Kubernetes Dashboard could be reached directly through the Azure Portal instead of creating a local tunnel using kubectl portforward command.

  5. Add a "Start/Stop Cluster" button to the AKS panel and CLI

    To stop an AKS cluster, it is needed to stop all running VM instances in the AKS availability group. Right now there's no way to do this "on the click of a button", to solve this I needed to write a ShellScript (attached to the idea), which stops all running VMs. And this takes a while...

    The idea is to add a "Stop/Start Cluster" button so we can better control the flow of our AKS cluster.

  7. AKS The possibility to tag the MC_ resourcegroup

    It would be nice if we could add a tag to the AKS resource which allowes the MC_ resourcegroup to be tagged with.
    In Databricks this is possible, so it would be nice if this was also possible in AKS.
    Thanks

  8. Add namespace column in insights

    We have the same component that is deployed in different namespaces (in this case a loader that is used for realtime vs. backfill purposes). This causes confusion in the insights screen. Additionally, filtering/sorting by namespace allows us to distinguish between our own and standard components.

  10. Service Principal Update not available for Cluster

    By mistake, I have deleted Service principal created for AKS, So I'm not able to update new SP in Kubernetes cluster. There is no other way for me, So I need to delete and recreate my cluster, please do add SP update option in the cluster for easy switch in future, instead of deleting entire cluster and recreating

  12. Filter in required Node configuration

    When we create a AKS from portal, using Change Size we can select any VM. If there is a recommended configuration like minimum 3.5GB RAM, it would be good to filter out the VM sizes that have less that required size, e.g. Standard F1S with 2GB RAM. This will be helpful since we can't change the Node size once cluster is created.

  13. Race condition related to creation of a new service principal before validating initial Kubernetes cluster configuration

    1. Open Azure Portal
    2. Create a resource
    3. Kubernetes service
    4. Fill in the required fields in the first step
    5. Click "Review + create"
    6. Wait until a Service Principal is created
    7. Wait until final validation runs

    *Sometimes*, the validation is not passed with the error:
    Provisioning of resource(s) for container service test in resource group [redacted] failed. Message: {\n \"code\": \"BadRequest\",\n \"message\": \"The credentials in ServicePrincipalProfile were invalid. Please see https://aka.ms/aks-sp-help for more details.

  14. Add to Azure Portal a shortcut for connecting AKS cluster via azure CLI (az aks get-credentials --name...)

    It will be very helpful if you could add to Azure Portal AKS page a shortcut for connecting an AKS cluster via Azure CLI (with copy).
    For example if my cluster name is: My-Cluster:
    az aks get-credentials --name My-Cluster -g My-Cluster-RG

    Thanks,
    Raz

  15. Ability to be notified whenever new kubernetes version is available

    Please send out alerts (portal notifications and/or email) whenever new kubernetes version is available. Thus we can upgrade clusters on time and be mostly within SLO.

  17. Check there is free ip addressing before allowing you to upgrade the AKS version

    JUst done a cluster upgrade that failed spectacularly as there were not enough free ip addresses in the subnet to cater for the temporay node added during upgrade. PLease can a simple check be done by the platform that enough addresses are free. In my case the cluster had to be completely destroyed and recreated to fix this - and i think that is the advice that MS now give if this happens. PLease prevent this happening for other customers!
