  1. Add info about Azure File Share usage to Get-AzStorageShare output

    Currently there is really no way to get current Azure File share usage from Azure CLI or Azure PowerShell. The only way possible is to enable Azure Monitor or just go to UI (or Azure Storage Explorer) and check usage yourself.
    Please add this to output of Get-AzStorageShare command as for now you could only get Quota information without any information about current usage. Thanks!

  2. Create a Multi-Region Key Vault. Add Multi-Region Key Vault to Encryption Scope so that it can support RA-GRS.

    Encryption Scope depends on Key Vault
    Key Vault has a collocation constraint which prevents that it work on multiple regions
    Encryption Scope is incompatible with RA-GRS and does not support secondary failover region

  3. Enable Soft Delete in Azure Data Lake Gen2

    You can turn on the Soft Delete option in Blob Storage, but not when it's got the ADLS Gen2 box checked. Please make this available in the ADLS Gen2 storage accounts. We just had an accidental deletion of a top-level folder in the container and it couldn't be restored by the MS engineers even with the geo-replication going.

  4. Add last-modified property of files in File Shares via PowerShell in Cloud Shell

    We can't get last-modified property of files in File Shares using Get-AzureStorageFile. It is null, but we have this property in Azure Portal.
    Can we improve this command?

  5. Access Azure Files shares on macOS using AD DS Authentication

    We would like to access Azure Files file shares on macOS systems using AD DS authentication, as we do for our Windows clients.

    We do not want to mount using access keys.

    Do you plan to implement this or should I look in a different direction?

  8. Explorer.exe hangs after deleting storage Account

    If you delete the Storage Account with Files Shares in Azure it will make all Windows clients unusable. (one hour freezes of everything that needs explorer.exe)

    Reproduction:


    1. Go to the Azure Portal and create a Storage Account

    2. Create in this new Storage Account a File Share

    3. Follow the instructions in the Azure Protal to connect a Windows Client. (you can use the Windows Sandbox feature, to don't brick your client)

    4. Go back to the Azure Portal and delete the Storage Account

    5. Go back to your client.

    6. In the Client you can run for example "Get-PsDrive" in a PowerShell and you…

  10. The architectural design decision to use SMB as the backend for Azure Disk needs to be bettered

    Azure Storage team should consider making some fundamental changes to their architecture to correct it. As a customer of Azure Storage I should not have to use UltraDisk to get reasonable performance, and even ephemeral disks have their drawbacks. I should also not need to use alternate (and additional cost) solutions like NetApp, this functionality should be an integral part of at least Premium SSD and also part of Standard SSD.

    If I were the Azure Storage team :- I would evaluate high-performance solutions that are true block storage like the ones from Pure Storage : https://www.purestorage.com/products/nvme/high-capacity/flasharray-c.html and deploy such…

  11. Alert on percentage use of a storage account

    Currently, the only metric on which an alert can be created on a storage account usage is usedCapacity(Avg) which is in bytes. A feature where an alert can be created for a certain percentage of storage account being full would be very helpful to monitor the usage of the storage account. For example, if a user wants to create an alert when 80% of the total capacity of a storage account is used, he should be able to do that very easily using portal, Azure CLI, and Azure PowerShell.

  12. Support for JSON format at API Responses

    Enable JSON format support at blob storage API HTTP response.

    Example, instead of:

    HTTP/1.1 404 The specified resource does not exist.
    Content-Length: 223
    Content-Type: application/xml
    Server: Blob Service Version 1.0 Microsoft-HTTPAPI/2.0
    x-ms-request-id: dbe27af2-701e-0045-0939-c25bc5000000
    Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2020 08:10:19 GMT

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Error><Code>ResourceNotFound</Code><Message>The specified resource does not exist.
    RequestId:dbe27af2-701e-0045-0939-c25bc5000000
    Time:2020-11-24T08:10:20.8064839Z</Message></Error>

    Using a querystring option or using a "x-ms" specific header to obtain:

    {

    &quot;Error&quot;:{
    
    &quot;Code&quot;:&quot;ResourceNotFound&quot;,
    &quot;Message&quot;:&quot;The specified resource does not exist. RequestId:dbe27af2-701e-0045-0939-c25bc5000000 Time:2020-11-24T08:10:20.8064839Z&quot;
    }

    }

  13. immutability

    Immutability at the object level is really missing here. It's a huge drawback compared to the competition.

  15. Azure Storage Explorer Copy Paste Option grayed out

    Azure Storage Explorer support variety of features such as Copy, Paste, Clone etc. However, we did not see any documentation which explains which roles and permissions should be set to view these feature.

    Having such documentation should help us.

  16. storage cheaper

    Storage is the largest part of the cost of my lab. I have 4 P10 disks that cost me $17 per month each. I would like more machines but this cost is prohibitive. Any ideas?

  17. Relax Storage account name rules for improved readability

    Why can Azure storage account name be only up to 24 characters and cannot contain anything besides numbers and lowercase characters? Most Azure services allow at least "-" character, but Storage and Kusto are notable exceptions.

    I love to have an incident at 3 am and figure out if it is prodscr1weuncasrlt or prodscr1neuncasrlt, vs prod-scr1-weu-cas-rlt.

  18. Support disabling "account key" based authentication to an Azure Storage Account

    Authenticating to a storage account using an AD principal is a greatly improved method of authentication, however since account key based authentication is always enabled there remains a critical security threat vector if since a key was compromised or inadvertently disclosed.

    It would be great if it was possible to entirely disable or block account key authentication for a storage account, or even to disable account key authentication for individual services (blob,queue,table).

    Taking the idea further would also allow for granular control of which containers/queues/tables would allow access key authentication.

    This would be an explicit choose by the user and…

  19. Allowed Access to Trusted services should be more granular

    Allowed Access to Trusted services lumps general access to some resources in with allowing more tightly control access for resources such as Cognitive Services via assigning roles to the instance Managed Identity. Why not split these categories into two flags?

  20. Fine grained details on Data Lake transactions

    We were generating many millions of transactions per day in Data Lake. Through some trial and error we were able to identify the Databricks delta lake merge and optimize commands that were generating the transactions. It would be great if some fine grained details were available on the transactions [beyond the API read/write level] that could trace which Databricks job / notebook was generating the transactions; something like # transactions by type by notebook / job by date.
