  1. Increase 10 minute inactive timeout

    Currently deploying some complex ARM templates from powershell on my computer can take up to 30 minutes - Powershell is running inside New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment commandlet and then returns success/failure. 10 minutes inactivity timeout is too low for such scenarios.

    BTW, Google Cloud shell has 1 hour limit https://cloud.google.com/shell/docs/features - The instance persists while your Cloud Shell session is active and terminates after an hour of inactivity.

    • Make fullscreen cloudshell accessible without portal being loaded

      Curent portal integration is fine but please allow access to cloudshell also as a separate component without portal integration e.g. https://cloudshell.azure.com or portal.azure.com/cloudshell

      Typically I don't need portal at all when I have command line or I can open portal in different tab/window if needed. Also it would speed up page loading on slow/mobile devices.

      • Make the Azure Cloud shell usable from ARM template

        we can make the Cloud shell usable from the ARM template so that we can deploy the resources on a single click which are currently not possible using the ARM template or additional configuration of the services once those are installed using ARM templates.

        • Cloud Shell Storage Account - Enhancements

          After initial configuration of Cloud Shell, make the Storage Account the user is using:
          * Visable what Storage Account is configured for him
          * Changeable what Storage Account is used
          * ARM Policy enforcing in which Subscription/ResourceGroup the Storage Account can or cannot reside
          * Ultimate end goal: Have the option to deploy without Storage Account, or let this be a seperate resource via a separate resource provider (like the current Managed Disks for VMs). So deploy Cloud Shell with "Cloud Shell Managed Storage".

          • Allow the font size change for the console

            Instead of requiring zoom feature of the browser, which makes the portal UI elements also big, allow a setting to change just the console fonts
