In 2018, Microsoft announced the possibility to customize Azure Portal dashboard. How can someone do that? Easy, since it is familiar with JSON format its piece of cake. It’s only three steps, download JSON – edit JSON file – upload JSON.

Let’s take a closer look at that feature:

Step 1 – Download Dashboard.json

From the Azure Portal horizontal menu click Download.

Step 2 – Edit Dashboard.json file

You can edit JSON with Visual Studio Code (download). As you can see on the following image I change  “colSpan”, “rowSpan” values and the “title” value.

Step 3 – Upload Dashboard.json

After the changes, save Dashboard.json file and Upload it back to the Portal.

The Results

Bellow you can see the final results of Dashboard.json modification.
