Editable naming way

Al-Jassem, Anas 1 Reputation point


I am just wondering if i can edit the automatic way of azure to name the new elements.
Is that possible.
For example i want whenever i create a VM that the NIC name will be "$VMName-NIC00". So if i make un other one it will be automatically "$VMName-NIC01"
Also for disks the same.

Does this exists in Azure? Or could be soon made.
It is very handy. And i think that every Azure user will be glad to have it.

One last thing. I saw no place to post this or to communicate with Azure support about it because the support is not allowing to contact for any thing else than what they want to hear. Thats why please afford a communication channel for new features and idea's.

Thanks in advance

    Hi @AlJassemAnas-2004,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    This UserVoice / feedback forum is the communication channel for new features and idea's related to Azure.

    I believe currently there is no straight-forward default supported way for your ask to suffix with incremental numbers for a resource automatically. This is a good idea which can be shared in above provided UserVoice / feedback forum so that our product group / responsible feature team would check feasibility of the feature request, prioritize against existing feature backlog and add in roadmap as appropriate. Once feedback is created, you may upvote it and other features that are of interest. We would announce and/or update the related Azure document once a feature request is addressed.

    With the current available features, to try accomplishing your requirement (i.e., to enforce rules around naming convention of Azure resources), you may leverage Azure Policy and/or ARM templates i.e., leverage available built-in policies or create custom policies as per your needs and/or leverage functions like copyindex and come up with ARM templates to validate and create set of required resources in a resource group, etc.
