  1. Quick Access entries confusing when more than one has the same name

    Quick Access node is very useful as a shortcut to often used storage resources.
    However, it displays just the name of each resource and you need to open 'Properties' to understand what is the parent storage account.
    This becomes especially frustrating for the various accounts used to cover production, staging and test environments where the resource names are identical.
    We need either the ability to rename Quick Access entries or at least some visual hint of the account that the resource belongs to.

  3. Allow copy/paste multiple files in web based Azure storage explorer

    Currently the preview version of the web based storage explorer in the Azure portal does not allow a user to copy and paste multiple files from one folder to another (the copy and paste button grey out when more than one file is selected). This would be a useful feature as currently files must be copied one at a time which is time consuming.

  4. 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;
    }

    }

  5. Include AAD user name in $logs or Log analytics when using Azure portal

    Many customers talked with me about this request.

    We now have $logs and Diagnostic settings (preview) which can send log format 2.0 to Log Analytics.

    The problem is that the log format 2.0 does not have the aad user name if an aad user reads/writes blobs from Azure portal.

    Anyway, if I use azcopy --login and azcopy copy to upload files, the aad user can be recorded in the $logs and Log Analytics. Customers want the aad user in $logs if using Azure portal.

  6. Allow Azure CLI to attach multiple disks to a VM at once

    This is identical to the GitHub feature request here:

    https://github.com/Azure/azure-cli/issues/15765

    Rather than requiring us to iterate over adding one disk at a time to a VM, allow the CLI to send the VM change containing all the disks to be added in a single API call.

    This will be very useful when speed is important.

  7. Extend Point in Time Restore to support Page Blobs

    Storage account PiTR currently works with block blobs, but not page blobs. Would be nice to be able to use this restore feature with page blobs.

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. Azure File Shares Multi-Thread support e.g Azure NetApp File

    Hi Team,

    We are using Azure File shares for production environment but there is a slowness while accessing data through application level due to Azure file shares only support single channel. Please enable for Multi-Channel support to enhance the performance.

  15. 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…

  16. Complete API responses

    Consider Policy as follows:

    &quot;if&quot;: {
    
    &quot;allOf&quot;: [{
    &quot;field&quot;: &quot;type&quot;,
    &quot;equals&quot;: &quot;Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts&quot;
    },{

    &quot;field&quot;: &quot;Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/networkAcls.defaultAction&quot;,
    &quot;equals&quot;: &quot;Allow&quot;
    }]
    },
    &quot;then&quot;: {
    &quot;effect&quot;: &quot;deny&quot;
    }

    }

    With this Policy in place, user cannot create Storage Account without setting Firewall default action to Deny. However the following PowerShell command successfully creates the Storage Account with Firewall default action Allow. This is because no value is specified by the user and no value appears in the request validated by Policy, while the default value supplied by Azure is Allow.

    New-AzStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName rg -Name saname -SkuName Standard_LRS -Location westeurope -Kind StorageV2 -AccessTier Hot

  17. Enable Snapshotting CloudBlobDirectory

    To snapshot many blobs beneath a CloudBlobDirectory, we currently must make a request to enumerate all blobs beneath that directory, then snapshot them all individually. The enumeration process adds considerable overhead for containers with millions of directories. I wish to have the ability to directly invoke snapshot creation on an entire directory, which internally would snapshot all blobs beneath the directory.

  18. add support for sync --cache-control

    Right now we can easily sync a file system with azure blob storage but we cannot make it set appropriate cache control headers, the end result is that the stuff we just synced isn't invalidated by the browser and if we do it as separate storage transactions after the fact we will incur double the transaction costs.

    It would be preferable if we could specify a cache control value when we sync and that the sync command sets the cache control header value to the desired value after sync.

    For example,

    .\azcopy.exe `
    
    sync `
    &quot;apps&quot; `
    &quot;$(TESSIN_AUTHZ_STORAGE_URL)/apps$(TESSIN_AUTHZ_STORAGE_SAS)&quot; `
    --recursive=true

  19. Allow to exclude files and directories from sync

    Please allow exclusion of syncing certain files or directories in Azure File Sync, based on user defined exclusion patterns. The internal list (*.tmp etc.) that is not synced is not enough for our use case.

  20. Allow Storage Account Firewall to use Named Locations

    We set up Named locations in Azure AD Conditional Access settings. It would be really convenient to use Named locations to allow a pre-defined range of IP's on the Storage Account firewall. Otherwise this list needs to be maintained in SEVERAL places - like each and every storage account.
