  5. Identify VMs that are not enabled for Hybrid Usage Benefits (HUB)

    VMs can take advantage of existing on premises licences for Windows and SQL to make the Azure spend lower. A recommendation to enable HUB would save some money (assuming appropriate licences are held by the Azure user)

  7. Allow tag management for entire environment

    Tagging strategy is an important issue in most companies. Keeping in mind limit of 15 tags per object is hard. It would be interesting to have a way to manage tags across all the environments from a tab in Overcast.

    Tag management to:
    - Keep limit of 15 tags per object
    - Ensure tags are not case-sensitive (upper- and lower-case) -- or at least give visibility over these tags so we can take action on them.

  9. Ability to remove case-sensitivity of tags in the settings of Overcast

    We have issues with upper-case and lower-case letters in tags that should be the same. We'd like to configure in the settings of Overcast to not discriminate based on case-sensitivity. We'd like to have a flat list of tags in Overcast, but it's not the case currently because of that issue.

  11. Support Shared Services Subscriptions feature

    Support Shared Services Subscriptions feature.

    Currently we are developing some IP on Azure. We use a Shared Service Subscription as a CSP Direct provider.

    We tried to add this to Overcast. One of my colleagues who is admin tried to view it, but could not see any details of the subscription.

  17. Filter for deleted/removed resources

    It would be nice to be able to filter out resources that no longer exist. Also maybe have some kind of visual indication to easily tell that a resource no longer exist.

  18. Identify VMs configured for ASR replication in Recovery Vaults

    VMs that are deleted are not automatically deleted from ASR so are still costing money. A job to find and delete these would save cash.
