  1. scheduled quick fix in azure advisor

    We would like to be able to schedule the implementation of quick fixes in azure advisor. For something like right sizing virtual machines... this enables us to schedule the right size with an outage window.

    Currently in order to do this we would need to manually write code to implement the change which means manually tracking what each machine should be resized to. It is very cumbersome. Scheduling a quick fix could be extremely useful and potentially simple to build.

  3. Integration between Azure Advisor and Azure DevOps

    It would be good to be able to create an Azure DevOps work item for a recommendation made by Azure Advisor with a link and status of that work item shown in the Azure Portal.

  4. Have Azure Advisor showing recommendations to reduce Managed Disks capacity

  6. Include all current SKU capabilities in resizing recommendations.

    Example would be one today that had 20 data disk at a size of StandardDS4V2 and Advisor says to move it to a Standard_B8ms which only supports 16 data disk.

  7. Allow the ability to refresh Advisor recommendations

    It would be great to have functionality to refresh advisor recommendations through a PowerShell command in the Az.Advisor library, we can already get and disable recommendations but currently do not have the ability to do a full refresh.

    Thanks for your note. Advisor relies on backend telemetry to update its recommendation list. There will always be some delay between resolving a recommendation and seeing it removed from the list. If more people also feel strongly about this issue, we can prioritize accordingly.

  8. Add cost recommendations for Azure SQL DB and Managed instance

    It would be beneficial to have recommendations presented in Azure Advisor for Azure SQL DB / MI. Below an example of where it would be helpful to have additional insights.

    My example is driving on a Service Owner and Architect within a Cloud Competence Center. Their role is facilitating information (like cost insights) and also help with making architecture decisions before DevOps teams start their project.
    The internal customers of the CCC are departments like Business Intelligence teams, development teams, departments with external vendors deploying applications.
    All these personas have different cloud skills:
    * BI and Developer teams that know…

  10. Create Advisor Recommendation Digest for Management Group or multiple subscriptions

    The recommendation digest is a great tool. But if you have a lot of subscriptions, it is a hassle to subscribe to all of them. It would be great if we could get a digest for all the subs in a management group or select multiple subscriptions.

  11. Allow all SQL sensitivity recommendations to be accepted at once

    Currently in the Advisor section dealing with SQL sensitivity labels, the UI only supports accepting 100 at a time. For anyone who already has an existing database with hundreds of fields, this can be very time consuming. It would be great to add an additional button to just accept ALL the recommendations, not just the 100 that are shown. Plus it doesn't always refresh itself very quickly and you have to go through a couple of different screens after accepting a batch of 100 to get back to the list.

    I ended up using the Azures Fluent SDK to do…

  12. Allow to get Advisor recommendations on the Dashboard it self

    I would like to get Advisor recommendations on the Dashboard it self instead of clicking and getting into (like redirect) , I was able to get the advisor tile on the dashboard but it just shows as an icon but not recommendation. Is there a way to list out all the advisor recommendation on the azure dashboard itself?

  13. Using REST API/Powershell "Buy Reserved instance" recommendation we do not see any the VM under impacted value for the recommended SKU size

    Under Cost Category for "Buy Reserved instance" recommendation we do not see any the VM impacted for the recommended SKU size. Only the affected resources are shown and not the resources that may be nested within. We would like to see for which vm the reservation of size is recommended by API calls output or powershell output.

  14. Allow customize advisor to look at 60 days CPU utilization instead of 7

    There should be a option or rules engine to feed into Advisor, currently it only looks at 7 days CPU utilization data for recommending, that should be customizable. There should be a way to enter custom rules like CPU < 25 for 80% of time over 30 days. Something like this.

  16. Include Cost Savings in the Advisor Recommendations

    It would be great if the Advisor recommendations included options for cost savings instead of typically only suggesting ways to spend more money.

    We had an excellent recent example: after digging into an unusually high quarterly invoice, we finally realized that we had unintentionally added a rule to scale out our primary App Service when CPU % was high. It ended up scaling out to 4 instances and we continued to be billed for the next 5 months until we realized what was happening. We realize this was our mistake, but it would have been nice if the Advisor would…

    Thanks for the feedback. While we do have some cost savings recommendations in the Cost category in Advisor already, this is a great idea for a new recommendation. Are there any other specific cost savings recommendations you’re looking for in addition to App Service?

  18. AKS Recommendations

    It would be great to see AKS recommendations in Azure Advisor - we have a big push towards AKS and would be good to see recommendations around security, cost e.g. reserved memory, high availability e.g. replica sets, performance. Are there any plans for this ?

  19. azure advisor custom rules

    Hello,
    I think Azure Advisor is a great idea but you are not leveraging enough the community.
    Portal users should be able to define their own rules based on entreprise strategy. In that spirit it would be nice to see some kind of merge between Azure policy monitoring and Azure Advisor.
    You could keep a difference of priority/leveling between Microsoft recommandations and users one with a specific display in the interface.

  20. When advising to renew reserved instance do it closed to the day the old one expires

    When Advisor suggest to renew RI it will create a new RI overlapping the old one since there's no extension of the previous RI, so recommendation is to advised renewal closest to the day the old one expires to avoid overlapping of 2 reserved instances and having one with 0% utilization
