Move enable/disable disruptive actions from Policy wide to action type

The option to enable/disable disruptive actions policy-wide is very restrictive. Most downscale actions are disruptive, but most upscale actions can be non-disruptive. In the current implementation, only a group of VM can be marked with this setti...

expanded options for aggressiveness, rate of resize and observation period

Currently, Virtual machine aggressiveness, rate of resize, and observation period are set for all types of actions CPU, Memory, Up, and Down. There is no way to have these configured differently for each type of action. So at the moment, VM will s...

Combine Azure volume scaling with VM scaling based on VM tags

What is the desired customer use case?: The customer would like from a policy to trigger the actions and execute the n actions at the same time (automatically/programmatically using API calls based on VM tags to select all the action related to o...
