  1. Ability to sort entries in storage account. It is currently not possible to sort entries in the storage account.

    It is currently not possible to sort entries in the storage container. Always the last entry is shown first ans you must every time scroll down and click to Show the next page. It would be better to Show the last entry at first

    • cache

      In the portal I want to be able to set (or at least see) http headers like "Cache-Control" at blob containers. We had an issue with CDN not caching images from blob when Cache-Control was not set to public.

      • Access Denied when Storage Firewall in place

        When a storage account firewall to only allow access to selected networks are in place, access is denied when trying to view the services in the storage account from places outside of the allowed network. This is expected according to document but we would like to know whether there can be improvement.
        Is it possible that an additional option to grant certain login ID’s permission to the object, regardless of where users login from?
        Thanks.

        • clone button for storage as we have for web apps

          for some data services we have native copy-clone mechanisms- for sql database it's Active Georeplication.
          If I will need to deploy my app in another region/datacenter - I will need to manually copy all containers and objects (using Datafactory or azcopy). GRS- it's not a solution, because I can't sync my data between West US and North Europe, but Active Georeplication- can do that.

          For Web App- we did "clone button" and in web site will be provisioned in another datacenter I choose.

          It would be great if you will create the same button for storage accounts and content in…

          • to remove 'Delete container' button from container view

            My bad experience says that it's very confusing to present 'Delete container' button (option) on the panel inside the container view.

            On attached screenshot you can see the situation.

            My user experience here is:
            - if any copy/delete/upload/move operations are presented as options (buttons) - they are going to be applied to selected items. NOT a container itself. So my eye is eager to catch any button with garbage can icon and title started with "Delete ..." - to delete selected items
            - When I'm in a container view as on screenshot and there are tons of blobs inside this…

              • storage diagnostics connection info

                When storage diagnostics is enabled, show a link or connection info to access the logs.

                • Display billing of each service

                  Storage consists of many services. It would be good to show each service billing in order to organize asset allocation precisely.

                  In example, page blob has 'billable size' along with its file size and blob has transaction cost. These matters could be included in usage metrics.

                  Currently, only 'Capacity: 5.0TB' data hasn't give much information.
