Have you been wishing for the ability to create custom dashboards in the Microsoft Azure Portal? Well, today is your lucky day, because the Microsoft Azure Portal team has been working hard, over the past months, to deliver on this as a new feature! In fact, not only can you create custom dashboards, but you can deploy them in declarative syntax, as part of a Microsoft Azure Resource Manager (ARM) JSON Template, and you can even share them with other users! As an added bonus, there is a new "Markdown" tile, that allows you to build documentation directly into your dashboard!

During this video, Trevor Sullivan explores the creation of a custom dashboard, how to add resource tiles, Markdown tiles, and then publish the dashboard to a Resource Group! After that, we delegate access to the Resource Group, to a different user account, and then login to the Microsoft Azure Portal as that user, and verify that we have access to it!

    This does not appear to be current. I have no options to file tiles in the tile gallery other than a choice of 25 tiles such as Clock, All resources, metrics chart.

    I want to add specific storage accounts to a dashboard called "Storage Accounts".
