  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. 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.

  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. Make AKS available in South Africa West

    Hi Team,

    Please may I request that AKS is made available in South Africa West. This is required for DR and data sovereignty.

    In this request, I am not speaking about availability zones, as I understand that is based on other factors, I am speaking about AKS as a standalone in South Africa West.

  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.

  9. AKS should show NTP synchronisation failure in Resource Health

    It would be a really nice feature if AKS could show you (maybe in resource health in Azure) if the nodes couldn’t synchronise time with the external dependency ntp.ubuntu.com.

    In our project we missed to configure the route when we deployed into a private VNET as described in the Microsoft Docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/aks/limit-egress-traffic#required-outbound-network-rules-and-fqdns-for-aks-clusters). The only way you can currently see this failure is when your time dependent application starts to have errors.

  10. 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.

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Metrics on AKS masters

    We had no idea that we had exceeded the capabilities of the AKS free tier and were seeing many scaling issues. It would be nice if if there were usage metrics on the AKS k8s control plane, so that we could have seen we were bottlenecked there and could upgrade to paid.

  16. Memory metrics in Portal different to output of kubectl top node

    I see a difference of 10%-20% between what I get from kubectl top node (my pods consume the same memory throughout the day) and what I see in Insights.

    It seems that AKS Insights in Portal show memory usage (working set or RSS) as % out of total VM node memory, which is not of interest to me, as I am solely concerned about % utilization of Kubernetes allocatable memory (what kubectl top node outputs).

    Even though there are good resources for that (https://learnk8s.io/allocatable-resources) I do not want to be concerned about system memory used by AKS/kubelet etc.

  18. AKS uptime SLA status in Azure Portal

    Would be great if the status of a AKS cluster stated if uptime SLA is enabled or not in the portal. Without having to 'extract' the info thru "az aks list/show..." ie having the set pricing tier available in the overview.

  19. In UI please allow data sorting and search client side

    All portal features allows for search by string not a exact name.
    When you are listing pods or services we need to provide exact name to get the view filtered - can we use same approach and be able to filter resources client (browser) side?

  20. Node pool upgrade verbose status logs in portal

    Our upgrades are done through the pulumi provisioning code and not directly with azcli. As such we don't get any status updates or logs on the upgrade during the operation which can sometimes take > 1 hr. I was looking for more of a detailed log stream telling me what node was now being drained/terminated and if there were any exceptions (kind of like what kubectl drain would give you) directly on the portal. That would help us to see if any of our config (PDBs on singular pods) were causing issues, since at the moment we only get that…
