Azure Tip: Global Subscription Filtering in Azure Portal

By | April 27, 2018

Global Subscription Filtering in Azure Portal allows persisting subscription selection. While dealing with multiple Azure Subscriptions in Azure Portal, you can persist the filtering of your specifics subscription in the portal. Because of multiple Azure subscriptions, the resource group or resources pages always list down resources from all the available subscription. Therefore, we need to filter the required subscription locally. You can now set your preferences using Global Subscription Filtering in Azure Portal.
