  1. Add DocumentDB Emulator support for Mac OS X and *nix

    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. No administrator rights required to run the emulator in Windows

    Would be nice to be able to deploy this emulator to locked down workstations, used by development teams in enterprise environment.

  3. Ability to use an own certificate

    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.

  4. Emulator does not open data explorer if started with /NoExplorer

    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.

  5. Generate rsa-2048 certs or higher

    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.

  6. Azure Cosmos DB Emulator

    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.

  7. Use the Azure Cosmos DB Explorer favicon for the emulator

    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.
