  1. Create Storage account not working in old portal

    New portal doesn't have custom domain name mapping. The storage account created in new portal doesn't show up in old portal.

    Old portal's 'create storage account' functionality is not working.

    • Delete a table should be a quicker and non blocking process

      The Table Delete Process should not leave the recreation of the table disabled.
      When deleting a big table in table storage, you have to wait an undetermined amount of time to be able to re create that table. The deletion time should be a predictable process, or at least a non blocking process. Maybe during the process, the table can be "renamed" so there is no conflict when trying to re create it.

      • SSD storage pricing is way high and the calculator in no way captures the actual cost that's incurred

        The SSD pricing is way too costly for us - I tried the calculator ( https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/calculator/ ) but when I started using it, it went off charts!! When I got in touch with the customer care, I was told the charge of the disk is list price which is used to multiply the consumed units.

        I've been using a single premium storage (SSD) which means I should be charged at $19.71 per month ( 1 X $19.71) and any the consumed units to be charged at $0.0036 per unit, so for instance if I have consumed 2.7 units it should…

        • Support geospatial storage in Azure tables

          Basically the idea is to store data in geospatial format and then allow table queries using geospatial concepts... for example, "points within 5 miles of this location" or "points within this boundary area".

          SQL Azure supports geospatial storage and DocumentDB does as well. It seems like Azure tables aren't getting the love.

              • Storage operations

                On Azure storage I would like to (from the new portal):
                - list content of tables
                - run queries against tables
                - peek/pop/put queues and show approximate queue size
                - browse blob hierarchies
                - download and upload blobs

                This functionality would alone be a reason to move from old portal to new portal.

                • Market Share

                  Either charge for Data Transactions or total storage usage.... you're already charging for Active Time, this might deter Larger companies.
                  People might start thinking that they are double charged and it gets out of hand.

                  Microsoft might want to make money but i think it should focus more on the market share first.

                  • Ability to delete and cleanup everything

                    There needs to be a method to delete everything.

                    I have a disk that I can't delete because its apparently locked to something.

                    But there is no single other thing active on the account.

                    I had to clean up a couple other similar disk and did manage to find where they were linked to.

                    Though this should be a simple. Please delete everything.

                    Or at the very least when it can't delete say what else needs to be deleted first.

                    • bug:Unable to choose bacpac

                      I keep getting the same error trying to choose a bacpac for importing to a new database. After I select the storage account and container, I get an error loading tile, as seen in the attached image. If I keep reloading, evenutally I will see the blobs load for the container, but will then get other odd errors.

                                • A Storage Account responses timeout error when increaseing the bandwide of requests

                                  A Storage Account responses a ServerTimeoutError when increasing in Client Receive Bytes because of By-design of Load distributed processing.
                                  We want design change request so that the storage account does not send a ServerTimeoutError even increasing in Client Receive Bytes.

                                    • RG: locked storage account when provisioning

                                      Hi've a OS Disk added to the repository, stored on a LRS storage account.
                                      When I try to deploy the machine, Ibiza portal "locks" the destination storage account to a premium one. I can't select or create a new storage account.

                                      • The ability to backup storage accounts

                                        I feel that it would be a great feature if Azure provided the ability to backup a storage account from 1 to another. Though I know Azure offer native resilience through replication, this does not provide protection from accidental deletion

                                        • Provide support for append blobs in the Azure Storage Emulator

                                          Currently Append Blobs aren't supported in the Azure Storage Emulator. Attempting an operation on an append blob returns a FeatureNotSupportedByEmulator error (HTTP status code 400 - Bad Request).
