When creating a volume scaling policy I want to be able to easily select groups for the policies in the same way as the VM policies work.
Currently I have to use a regex expression to include all the groups that the policy applies to. This is highly inconvenient as every time I want to add a new group to the policy I have to construct a new regex expression.
Allow a method to report on cost savings (lost/hidden) by policy
Allow a way to look at actions that would be generated by policy but that are excluded. Example: If I create a policy to generate no actions on a specific subscription, I would like to be able to see what the "potential" savings are that are hidde...

As a user I would like the ability to identify policies that no longer have a scope group associated or groups that no longer have any members, so that I can ensure my automation is being enforced correctly as well as reduce "clutter".
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...
Improve adding groups to "Volumes" and "Database" policies
Currently, when changing the scope of a policy, the new scope overrides the old scope once saved. This only occurs for database policies and volume policies, not virtual machine policies. For example, if i have a policy and the scope is for group ...
Single execution plan for executing same action on systems located at different timezones, like Cloud Availability zones or regions
If I have a distributed application deployed at different timezones, I need to create many policies to execute an action at 6 AM on Saturday. This leads to a large number of execution plans and associated policies. If the action is same and need t...
