    We currently do this for internal chargeback with over 8,000 on-premises VMs. We absolutely need the same in Azure - even if it's thousands of VMs.

    I think reporting options that show a monthly per-VM cost rather than a daily/hourly cost would be acceptable for most of our use cases.

    We now offer a “Usage” blade that allows you to view capacity for the blob portion of a Storage account. We also offer alert rules for blob capacity and total requests as well. There are no plans to extend this to individual blobs at this time, but this is something we will look into periodically. Thanks for your feedback!

    The portal uses cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) to communicate to back-end services directly from the browser. We are working with our partner teams to get a full list of URLs required to manage your resources in the portal. Here are a few known URLs:

    *.azure.com
    *.azure.net
    *.windows.net
    *.azurecomcdn.net
    *.azureedge.net
    *.msecnd.net
    login.microsoftonline.com
    login.live.com

    Third-party services:

    *.sendgrid.com
    *.newrelic.com

    Please let us know if we missed any.

    Matt Allison commented  · 

    The prior Azure portal had relatively few URLs (I think all manage.windowsazure.com actually) for the underlying .js and other components of the site.

    The new portal pulls content from seemingly everywhere - each blade/component using different URLs including content from CDNs.

    This broad array of sources does not work in our environment (proxy/firewall/policy issues) and the result is that the portal is completely unstable and can't be relied on for anything.

    The request is to ensure that all components used by the new portal are under a consistent URL scheme and IP address range.

    Thank you for your feedback. We view this ask as a set of related features.

    Soft delete for blobs enables you to save and recover your data where blobs or blob snapshots are deleted. It does not protect against container or account deletion. This feature is currently generally available. You can see the announcement here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/soft-delete-for-azure-storage-blobs-ga/ and the full documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/storage-blob-soft-delete

    Object versioning will also offer object-level protection, and will offer a few incremental improvements to soft delete. Specifically, it will make recovery of deleted data easier. This feature is planned for the coming year.

    Container soft delete will protect against container-level deletion and modification. This feature is planned for the coming year as well.

    Native support for blob backup will protect against account-level deletion and modification, and is currently on our backlog.

    We will provide updates when they become available. For any further questions, or to discuss your…

    Thank you for your feedback. We would like to get more feedback about this item before we prioritize. Is the ask here to replicate a storage account on-demand ? Or have a mechanism to always keep two or more storage accounts in sync ?

    Meanwhile, to unblock some of our users we have published a sample that copies blobs from an account to another account: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/scripts/storage-common-transfer-between-storage-accounts?toc=%2fpowershell%2fmodule%2ftoc.json

    Matt Allison commented  · 

    Pilling on to what I said before. AzCopy is cute but ultimately isn't working for me. I could use any or all of the following:
    1) Ability to copy a locked VHD
    2) Ability to create a snapshot (or series of rolling snapshots - ex: /max:3 which would eliminate older ones when taking the new one)
    3) Ability to copy the last snapshot (ex: /lastsnap) to a usable VHD

    Matt Allison commented  · 

    If I could vote this up a million times I would. I cannot possibly overstate how important it is to be able to clone/backup/copy an entire Storage Account (up to and including every Storage Account within a Subscription) to an alternate location (different account/subscription/region).

    Without that, every Azure subscriber is just one step away from being the next CodeSpaces.

    Hey Folks,

    We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

    We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

    Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

    Thanks,
    Azure Portal Team

    I can understand that a change would be significant at this point. I have managed to have some success using the mouse scroll wheel with the horizontal scrolling but it's annoying (move mouse pointer to the proper part of the screen, scroll, then do it again if I need to scroll vertically).

    However, the horizontal scrolling combined with a lack of "open in new tab|window" functionality is difficult to use.

    I'd like to repeat a comment somebody made in a previous suggestion: try and work with the portal on a non touch-screen laptop with a 720p display using only a keyboard and touchpad.
