  1. Storage to have readonly key for blobs

    Allow for Storage to have Read only keys that can be used in client tools like Azure Storage explorer or Cloudberry for read only access.
    Often times, a client tool needs to be given to customer to access files and it is not feasible to give the shared key which has full access.

    Even better would be to allow for a "user" key to be generated with granular permissions on containers that can be set from Azure portal.

    • Fix Storage Explorer to autodetect proxy settings

      This messes me up *so* much right now -- I'm alternating between Fiddler use which, depending on how I configure Storage Explorer, will block connections at times (in my case, to the Development emulator).

      • Improve Search Performance for exact matches

        We are currently using Azure Media Services which creates a new blob container for each asset. We currently have 40,000 distinct assets. When attempting to search from the blob container level using the exact container id it can take 10+ minutes. This seams to be searching for content within the containers as well. In contrast if we search Azure Media Services Explorer by id it is instant. It would be good to be able to have more control over how it searches

        • Remove "Storage accounts" from the navigation tree

          Navigation tree in the app can be simplified by removing "Storage Accounts" child of the "Subscription" parent and move all items of the context menu to the subscription parent

          • Add a Chocolatey package for Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer

            Chocolatey makes it easy to install and upgrade programs. This should be easy to create with each deployment

            • Storage Explorer v0.8.12 breaks if HOMEDRIVE offline

              V0.8.12 update has broken Storage Explorer for me with an "Unknown Error" when starting. As the error refers to "P:/" I suspect it is something to do with the HOMEDRIVE environment variable that points to that drive. This is a network drive enforced upon my by group policy but which I never use. As I am currently engaged in trial Azure development I generally have to work offline from the corporate network due to proxy server and firewall restrictions we are not yet ready to lift.

              I am working with our internal support to try and get GP exceptions but…
