    In Azure toolkit for eclipse, the UI doesn't allow to select/deselect all the subscriptions that are enumerated. It is a pain to manually uncheck everything and then select the subscription that I need to work with.

    • Append blob operation want to supported by Azure Storage emulator.

      We use Azure storage emulator for developing some software .

      But we can't emulate Append Blob on Azure Storage emulator.

      ( I know Append blob emulation supported by REST API. )

      If the emulator support Append blob , we can easily develop software for Append Blob.

      • Need mock libraries for the azure-sdk in node js

        Is there any mock library published by microsoft to mock the access of azure resources while using azure-sdk ( in node js )?

        • Improve error reporting when hitting the Azure API limit

          We have been working with Microsoft Support to identify an issue where we were intermittently encountering exception "A task was canceled" when calling the list methods from Microsoft.Azure.Management.Compute.SnapshotsOperationsExtensions.

          We narrowed this down to the Azure API limit being reached, which from our understanding is a maximum of 240 request / 3 minutes.

          It appears that currently the only way to confirm that this is the issue is to check "x-ms-ratelimit-remaining-resource" in the header details.

          It would be good if the Azure .NET SDK could report an exception that indicates the API limit has been exceeded, rather than "A task has…

          • AzureServiceTokenProvider

            MSI is a great feature, in .Net using MSI is simple via AzureServiceTokenProvider it would make life much easier if there was a direct equivalent in the Java SDK. I do realise you can do MSI from Java but a few hoops to jump through to make code transparent between on-prem development and running in the cloud.

            • We need .Net RTC

              We need .net RTC for P2P realtime. WebRTC is not documented well, their TURN servers are horrible and don't integrate with business easily, and can't scale easily. WebRTC itself is bad Javascript tightly coupled to browser camera while it should take streams from independent resources. The .net RTC with supporting could relay services (TURN) will do good for both Azure and us.

              • Make it easier for people to remove azure toolkit from eclipse

                I have removed all things azure from eclipse, azure just didn't work for my project. Still, when eclipse loads I get the message, 'loading azure core' and I can't seem to find a way to eliminate it.

                  Ok, me again.. I keep saying that I thought I was hacked but turns out I’m a moron. Anyway, so while in the throws of this awful time in my technological life, I was thinking of trying to level the playing field against my would be hackers and seriously considered some coding what not. It is all good unless whoever is above you on your org chart is not with it. My point is, I have signed up for developer account to with ALOT OF SOFTWARE COMPANIES, I can barely develop the courage to even look at code anymore so…

                  • Clarify Cloud Explorer vs Server Explorer in Visual Studio

                    The confusion between whether I should look at Cloud Explorer vs. Server Explorer for a given resource (or even for a given operation for a given resource) is difficult to reconcile. Either move all Azure components into Cloud Explorer or move them all into Server Explorer.

                    • No Azure option in WebApp menu

                      I am working through the 'Create your first Java web app in Azure' document and when trying to publish the 'Hello Azure!' text in Project Explorer, I right-click on 'MyFirstJavaOnAzureWebApp,' I do not see the 'Azure' selection. There is nothing between 'Java EE Tools' and 'Team.'
                      Could you let me know what I need to do to fix this?

                      • Python SDK Should Reuse Existing Authentication Token

                        The Azure Python SDK generates a new authentication token with every API request. As each SDK API interaction consists of two requests, new auth token generation and the original request, this more than doubles the API round trip time (rtt). These additional tokens are also undesirable, as they both pollute logfiles and expose the Azure subscriber to a larger surface area for brute force attacks.

                        The Python SDK should store and reuse existing auth token(s) to address these concerns. An example implementation would be to store the auth token within the class and renew it on authentication failure (return code…

                        • 'ExceptionTelemetry.HandledAt' is obsolete

                          it would be nice to have an example on how to change this.

                          when I compile some code that is using ExceptionTelementry.HandledAt I get the following compiler warning:

                          'ExceptionTelemetry.HandledAt' is obsolete: 'Use custom properties to report exception handling layer'

                          but I haven't found any examples for using "custom properties to report exception handling"

                          • CosmosDB mocking support for IDocumentClient is extremely poor

                            I found it is borderline impossible to mock IDocumentClient (CosmosDB) due to the inconsistent implementation of interfaces.

                            Simple example: IDocumentClient is defined. This is good. IFeedResponse, IResourceResponse are defined. This is good. IDocumentClient returns FeedResponse and ResourceResponse instead of IFeedResponse and IResourceResponse. This is bad. The properties from the concrete implementations that I need to mock are all read-only, so this stymied all my efforts to write any unit tests whatsoever for my storage layer code in my latest project.

                                        • There's no minimum .Netframework set

                                          The nuget will happily install on any previous .NetFramework version 4.6 and below.

                                          This should have a minimum framework requirement set like other nuget packages.
