  1. Azure Storage Explorer

    The customer finds that the storage size is growing too fast and wants to go through the directory size list. can we provide a function to compute the total storage size of a folder for ADLS gen2? current version has 'Folder statistics' for common storage type, but for ADLS Gen2 is not supported this feature. Can we add this feature?

  2. Conditional Access Support for Storage Explorer

    Is it possible to add support for the following?

    "Conditional access is not supported when Storage Explorer is being used on Windows 10, Linux, or macOS. This is due to a limitation in the AAD Library used by Storage Explorer."

    We are blocking non-administrative accounts to access any cloud app except for the ones we want to allow.

    However some of our non-administrative users need access to a file share without using a windows vm using SMB. So we want to let these accounts use the Azure Storage Explorer to access these file shares.

    However with our current conditional access…

  3. I would like to feedback Microsoft to add new feature on ADLS Gen2 to allow to add Group using Group name.

    I would like to feedback Microsoft to add new feature on ADLS Gen2 to allow to add Group using Group name. Because now we can use only object id which it is difficult to maintain. It is very good if we can both object id and group name.

  6. Azure Storage Explorer: bulk change access tier

    Azure Storage Explorer allows me to change the tier of a single file by right click and select new tier.

    ex: change from hot to archive, or archive to hot etc.

    I'd like the ability to change the access tier multiple files at once, or a whole folder of files.

  9. No CLI for FileSystem creation in Azure Storage Gen2 account type

  10. Cannot download macOS Azure Storage Explorer from web site

    On the web site at https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/features/storage-explorer/, if you select macOS and click the "download" button, the windows (.exe) version is downloaded instead of the macOS version.

  11. Azure Storage Explorer - View Blobs by Date

    I use an old tool called Azure Storage Explorer 6 and it displayed all the blobs within a container without any subfolders by date. I use the logging available in an Azure web app to log to blob storage and this creates all sorts of subfolders so it is difficult to find the logs.

    Can this functionality be built into the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer?

  12. When Azure Storage Explorer could add AAD application for ADLSv2

    Currently we need to use the REST API of Update to add permissions. The following link is an introduction to the API:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/zh-cn/rest/api/storageservices/datalakestoragegen2/path/update

    Finally tested, you can add AAD's APP to the folder.

    1. Create a SAS Token.

    2. Save the Application ID.

    3. Use a Postman or other tool to send a Path request.
    Method: PATCH
    Url: http://{accountName}.{dfs.core.windows.net }/{filesystem}/{path}?action={action}&position={position}&retainUncommittedData={retainUncommittedData}&timeout={timeout}&{SAS Token}
    Header: x-ms-acl: user::rwx,group::r-x,mask::rwx,other::---,user:87867a54-2d32-4d28-9444-ca42fd022abd:rwx
    x-ms-version: 2018-11-09

    Sample Url: https://mscssadlsv2.dfs.core.windows.net/123//?action=setAccessControl&sv=2018-03-28&ss=bfqt&srt=sco&sp=rwdlacup&st=2019-01-16T23%3A37%3A00Z&se=2019-01-23T23%3A37%3A00Z&sig=lV8gu%2FgLeqsIhh2UDRxCSX0U7rPNgKpIQ7adxSMbe7g%3D

    Is there any KB / road map / feature request for when AAD applications will be supported under storage explorer?

    Can we add the feature to the ASE?

  14. Azure Storage Explorer Preview Bug

    Created an access policy for an Azure Table then went into Storage Explorer (Preview) and attempted to create a Shared Access Signature, I am not able to click Create after selecting the access policy drop down for my created policy, only if I use the (none) option and specify the settings. I need to use the installed version of storage explorer still for this.

  15. Allow Role Based Access Control in Azure Storage Explorer

    I would love to be able give my team members copies of Azure Storage Explorer and know they have exactly the access level to each storage container based on their login credentials.

    With RBAC already in Public Preview for Storage, this seems like a logical next step for Storage Explorer to support.

  16. Add compare functionality to Azure Storage Explorer

    Would be useful to be able to compare storage accounts/containers/folders/files and choose to sync either way or selectively. Doesn't need to show differences internal to the files just that one is different to another and meta such as newer or older, size, etcetera.

  18. Azure Storage explorer should have an option in the UI to cascade security settings to child files for Azure Data Lake storage. (gen 2)

    We can use the CLI to achieve this, but it would be useful from an admin perspective to be able to do it via a UI

  19. Improve file search functionality in Active blobs

    Improve search functionality in Active blobs. I would like to be able to search files where it does not rely on case-sensitive and allows me to search by extension. (.png, .jpg, etc.) Currently, if I was to type ".png" in the search bar, it will return nothing.

  20. Enter deep directory structure with single doubleclick

    Some folder structures are very deep. Example: Stream Analytics execution logs.

    I need to doubleclick 11 times to enter the folder structure /insights-logs-execution/resourceId=/SUBSCRIPTIONS/MYSUB/RESOURCEGROUPS/NORTHEUROPEINFRA/PROVIDERS/MICROSOFT.STREAMANALYTICS/STREAMINGJOBS/ARSTREAMANALYTICS/y=2019

    and after each doubleclick I need to wait a while to let the UI update before doubleclicking again.

    It would be nice if it was possible to open all subfolders until there is a branch possibility.

    Github has this feature. Example:
    https://github.com/microsoft/CorrelationVector-Java/tree/master/src
    One click takes me to main/java/com/microsoft/correlationvector
