SDK and Tools

  1. Allow the ability to add files "as link" into Role Content folders

    I can't add a file 'as a link' to the role content folder of a Worker or Web role project. The drop down option, seen in this Stack Overflow answer, is not available:

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13562875/azure-can-i-copy-to-output-directory-a-file-that-doesnt-reside-in-my-solution/13563821#13563821

    Right now, we have configuration files that are needed to by a startup task (defined in ServiceDefinition.csdef) , that need to be included in all of our worker role solutions. Without being able to add that file as a link, we have separate copies of that same file across all of our worker role solutions, making these configuration files difficult to update. (Instead of updating one…

  3. Improve upon the PHP SDK

    Hi,

    The Azure PHP SDK has not been functionally updated for a long time, and I'm hoping to see some focus on it's SDK. For example, Azure DNS is not exposed. I don't know if the strategy is to wrap the Management REST API in the SDKs or to fully support (classes and methods) the functionality that Azure offers.

  4. Single installer for the entire Azure SDK

    When downloading Azure SDK offline the download button takes me to a list of files that are not very descriptive. I end up downloading and installing all of them as I don't want to waste time working out if I need all of them.

    An example is Azure SDK 2.9.

    It would be nice if I could download an offline installer with the entire Azure SDK libraries and tools in one bundle or if there could be further information as to what each of those files is for and in cases of I just want latest SDK a download and…

  5. Development certificates do not have a Subject Alternative Name

    Certificates for development (localhost) do not have a subject alternative name extension. Latest versions of Google Chrome require this to display pages without security warnings.

    Additionally, makecert doesn't allow to create self-signed certificates with a SAN.

    Please add a SAN to localhost and 127.0.0.1 when installing dev certificates for the Azure SDK.

  6. HDInsight Jupyter Notebook doesn't include Azure SDK for Python 3

    Jupyter notebook with Python 2 has Azure related packages preinstalled so one can directly interact with Azure services like Table Storage from within notebook.

    However, notebook with Python 3 doesn't contain Azure related libraries. See screenshot

  8. Exclude 32-bit files from .cspkg

    With SDK 2.9 whenever I "package" my cloud service I get a .cspkg file which is a ZIP archive containing a .cssx file. The latter is also a ZIP archive which contains "base" folder with a "x86" subfrolder which contains a number of platform executables. Those x86 executables are useless because only 64-bit processes are usually run and the x86 files only inflate the package.

    They should not get into the package.

  9. Incorrect max size for int64 in Azure Storage Explorer

    Part of the validation for int64 calls isSafeInteger which has a max size of 9007199254740991 there is additional validation to check against the correct 9223372036854775807 but it's superseded by the isSafeInteger.

    I wasn't sure if this was the best place for this bug (I've put a separate item of feedback for it being nice if this was open source again).

  10. re-Open source Azure storage explorer again

    Although the storageexplorer.com site is nice and light weight and it's great how often the app is being updated. There isn't a clear mechanism to provide feedback.

    It would be great to more clearly deprecate the codeplex site and project deco on github and open source the latest app.

  11. CLI 2.0 needs the equivalent of Get-AzureRmProviderOperation or "azure provider operations show".

    Get-AzureRmProviderOperation in PowerShell and "azure provider operations show" in the CLI 1.0 provide valuable information when creating custom RBAC roles. There isn't an equivalent command in CLI 2.0.

  13. Support for detecting port from Docker container other than the .Net Core app

    Our configuration includes an nginx proxy in front of .Net Core. When using the Visual Studio Tools for Docker, it attempts to detect the exposed port from the .Net Core application container, and uses it to launch the browser.

    However, when I add the nginx proxy to the docker-compose.yml file, I'd like it to instead get the port from the proxy container, which is then forwarding to the application. Currently, it fails with an error "Can not find any host ports in the conainer 'xxxx'" and i have to lookup the port number myself from Docker.

    Allowing this would mean…

  14. Docker tools fails with proxy error

    Hi there,

    I am trying out the docker tools for VS2015 but my very simple test fails at the PrepareForLaunch build task due to a Proxy error.

    I didn't know what URL it is trying to call (or why as I just want to test this locally) and presume the proxy needs to be set somewhere...

    Here is the stack trace:

    Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
    Error MSB4018 The "PrepareForLaunch" task failed unexpectedly.
    System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: An error occurred while sending the request. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.

  15. Ability to login Visual Studio Server Explorer with RBAC accounts.

    One of the customer wants to connect Azure from Server Explorer. Cloud Explorer is not enough because it won't show all subscriptions if the customer has several Active Directories.

    This is the related post below. But it is completed as of now, so I created a new one.

  16. Fail the build if the Azure SDK version is not compatible with OS Family

    When attempting to publish a cloud service via Visual Studio (2015) the deployment only errors out after the package is uploaded.

    Sample error message: "The SDK package you are trying to deploy is not supported by the operating system you have chosen."

    It would be nice if the VS publish process could check this at compile time.

  17. Azure SharePoint Online Migration Powershell - Add Delta Copy Function

    Add delta copy capability to Azure SharePoint Online Migration Powershell.

    The current SharePoint Online Managament Powershell cmdlets allow great migration speed via Azure to SharePoint Online. namely

    New-SPOMigrationPackage
    ConvertTo-SPOMigrationTargetedPackage
    Set-SPOMigrationPackageAzureSource
    Submit-SPOMigrationJob

    The glaring oversight is that once a migration is performed one cannot perform a delta migration of files that have been modified since the original migration. The cmdlets will only migrate new files and will not migrate existing files with modified dates later than the original.

    HUGE oversight as the migration has to be performed from scratch again after deleting the SharePoint files completely.

    Please add this functionality!

  19. Attach debugger to all w3wp processes, not just one

    A multi-site/application cloud service (several Site or VirtualApplication elements in .csdef) means multiple IIS processes (w3wp.exe). They are typically started on demand which means one is started initially, and others on the first request to that site/application.

    When running in the emulator, F5 only attaches the debugger to that first process... but not to the additional ones, as it should.

    To debug a multi-site/application webrole correctly (i.e. to have the debugger attached to all appropriate processes), we have to develop a custom VSPackage which pings all URLs to start the additional processes, and then attaches the debugger to them... this…

  20. Exclamation mark is wrongly used

    Publishing web/worker role shows exclamation mark during updating. It is "wrong" icon as it stands for "Warning" in Visual Studio. It would be good to replace it.

    I recommend [cloud icon]+[build down-arrow icon] image instead.
