  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. 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.

  3. bypass local

    Add bypass local option to Proxy options.

    I need to connect to a cloud blob while behind a corporate proxy, but I also need to use the local emulator.
    If I specify the proxy, then Storage explorer fails to connect to the local emulator. Error is "Access Denied (authentication_failed)".

    Your credentials could not be authenticated: "Credentials are missing.". You will not be permitted access until your credentials can be verified.

  4. Azure Storage Explorer

    Azure Storage Explorer should have, a “Load More” or, a “Load All” button, which should be accompanied by a warning.
    If ASE has cached only a certain number of entries and you try to order that cache (whether by Last Modified Date or any other attribute), you should get a warning if the cache size is smaller than the container size, and perhaps the option of loading the entire container. That way, it doesn’t just give a misleading listing that is incorrect for subtle reasons.

  5. Fix blobPath double encoding, which produces invalid urls

    When i upload png file to storage, i got such response:
    {
    "fieldname": "logo",
    "originalname": "logo.png",
    "encoding": "7bit",
    "mimetype": "image/png",
    "container": "my-container-name",
    "blobPath": "1586785817685-MTExMS5wbmc%3D.png",
    "url": "https://my-host-name.blob.core.windows.net/my-container-name/1586785817685-MTExMS5wbmc%253D.png"
    }
    If I use this blobPath for constructing url to get my file I'll get BlobNotFound error, Azure portal's storage explorer uses this invalid url too and i got the same error using URL

  6. Azure storage explorer, Copy and Paste grayed out after ACL on Gen2

    End Goal : “Copy & Paste” need to enabled when applied ACL’s.

    Scenario:

    · We created the nested Security Group ( SG ) to apply the ACL’s and to avoid 32 ACL limitation.

    · The reason for our implementation is cross teams is not having folder access to different line-of-business folders & data, and to improve the data security.

    · Because of ACL’s users unable to manage the data using the storage explorer in some situations since “Copy & Paste” is greyed out.

    · We cannot share the SAS key, since it is applicable at the container level and also…

  7. Make Azure Storage Explorer MFA-friendly during login

    For Azure Storage Explorer, when someone signs in using an account with MFA and that account has multiple subscriptions, the app should let the user sign in by entering password and text message only once.

  8. There should be a way for users to navigate to their containers without having to have full read permissions on the storage account

    There should be a way for users to navigate (using point and click) to their containers without having to have full read permissions on the storage account (which seem to override any container-level).
    We found that granting the "Reader" role on the storage account gave users read access to all the containers within it. Perhaps that needs to be reviewed, or another role created that just allows the displaying of storage accounts, and then displaying of containers within it could be based on container-level ACLs

  9. 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…

  11. Storage Explorer - Need more options to configure view

    You can hide top level Services like Storage, Disks, Cosmos, Data Lake; but it would be good to be able to hide next level down, or any unused items. The interface is quite cluttered!

  12. 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.

  15. 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?

    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.

  19. In azure storage explorer change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store)

    In azure storage explorer, it'd be nice to be able to change timezone from GMT to local time (data lake store), this feature would be very useful as we check if our processes went through sometimes by looking at the last modified date of a specific file, while we have this automated sometimes data scientists and other users can quickly tell if something is not up to date.

    Is this feature available? This only works only for Shared Access Signature but not ADLS

  20. 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?
