The DocumentDB Emulator currently only supports Windows 10.
It would be great if support for Mac OS X could be added or documentation to run it on other platforms.2,588 votes
Another update on this since it’s been over a year.
First, our apologies this has taken so long. As previously stated the work on this took much longer than expected. Additionally, work on the emulator has started/stopped/started/stopped over the past year and COVID has also not helped to get this completed.
Rest assured we still intend to complete this work. We apologize for the delays.
Thanks again for your patience.
Would be nice to be able to deploy this emulator to locked down workstations, used by development teams in enterprise environment.9 votes
JDK cacerts file, located in program files, cannot be edited on locked down workstations, used by development teams in enterprise environments. There is a workaround using a certificate file other than the one specified in JDK home, but would be nice to use a ad domain ssl certificate for the emulator which can be trusted companywide.3 votes
If the emulator is started with /NoExplorer, then it will never open the data explorer even if explicitly requested to (i.e., right-click on icon, select "Open Data Explorer"). It would be better to have the /NoExplorer flag prevent the explorer from opening on startup, but allow it to be opened if explicitly requested.1 vote
Thanks Stephen for your suggestion.
The use case for this flag is for when emulator is used as part of CI/CD pipeline.
Is there a reason why this suggestion would be needed versus just stopping and starting the emulator again?
In order to use the emulator to develop locally alongside function core tools using bindings, it is necessary to generate a certificate from the emulator if the core tools are running on Linux. However the cert that is generated is only rsa-1024, and the core tools running on Linux will reject anything below 2048, making the connection fail. Can the level of cert created from the gencert command be improved or at least be able to be configured? Thank you.1 vote
After installation of Azure Cosmos DB Emulator and while launching it is asking for admin credentials.
In client n/w we don't admin access, is there any way we can launch the app, or is it possible to suppress the admin credentials prompt.
Please guide us with options to launch application in client machine.1 vote
I often have many tabs open with the Microsoft logo on them, since I frequently peruse Microsoft's excellent documentation pages.
When I run the Cosmos DB emulator at the same time, I often have trouble finding the correct tab for its explorer, because it uses the same favicon as the documentation (and a whole host of other Microsoft websites, I'm sure).
Knowing that there already exists a favicon for such an explorer (namely the one at https://cosmos.azure.com), I propose that this icon is also used for the emulator, to make it easier to find the explorer window.1 vote
