  2. Notifications of breaking changes

    I've been using the azure storage import for the Python SDK for months. Today is failed with a message --cannot import name 'cloudstorageaccount'.
    A pip install azure-storage --upgrade fixed the issue, but how do I know in advance that breaking changes are eminent.

  3. Unable to sign in: unable to verify the first certificate

    Unable to authenticate to storage because of TLS server certificate validation. We use a transparent proxy that MITM outbound connections by presenting a certificate signed by our internal CA. We attempted to import that CA into Storage Explorer using the certifcate import function in the Edit menu but the client still rejects the certificate.

    The user experience on the current Azure Storage Explorer is very bad.

  5. Unable to view documents in CosmosDB in Storage Expolorer 1.6.0

    After upgrading Storage Explorer 1.5.0 to 1.6.0 I am unable to view any documents in CosmosDB instances hosted on Azure.

    When clicking on a Documents node in the left-hand pane a new tab is opened but remains blank (even without the buttons)

    Showing documents from local emulator works fine.

    The same applies to Query Tab.

  6. 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.

  7. Right click options on blob are cut off the screen

    If my list of blobs is too long or my browser is too short, then the right-click options expand downward and the lowest options are cut off the screen

  8. Allow tables to be deleted via the Storage Explorer Application.

    Deleting Azure Tables via Storage Explorer should be a simple highlight-and-delete process akin to File Explorer's selection abilities on Windows. Applications such as Cerulean File Explorer and Powershell scripting allow for this.

  10. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  17. Renaming a 'folder' places blobs in the wrong place

    If you have a 'folder' named say 'level1/level2/level3', if you rename 'level3' to 'level3renamed', the blobs it contained are incorrectly moved to 'level1/level3renamed' instead of 'level1/level2/level3renamed'. It isn't possible to work around this by entering 'level2/level3renamed' as the rename target, since including a '/' disables the button.

  18. 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.

  19. Improve Azure Storage Explorers ability to download large VM's

    Azure Storage Explorer always stops downloading VM's from Azure every time. I've been trying to download the same 128 GB classic VM with it for over an hour and it keeps timing out between 20% and 30% each time. At least allow someone to resume a download.

  20. automatically save back to the file share

    since we cannot map to file shares because Comcast blocks 445 it would be nice if when using the storage explorer for opening files they would automatically save back to the file share instead of the local drive. It is not really a file "share" if the changes are only locally stored and the user then has to take another step to upload which they will most likely never do.
