  3. "Unable to start the Cloud Shell. Take a look at the troubleshooting guide." ???

    Oh, that's a really smart error message... that doesn't say ANYTHING about what has gone wrong. You really think I am going to waste my time poring through your explanations of possible error messages just to try your intro to azure service? You think I have nothing better to do than do YOUR job?

  4. Allow cloudshell to be created inside a VNET

    It would be quite helpful to be able to SSH or PowerShell into systems that are only accessible from inside of the VNET. This would reduce the need for me to fire up my laptop if I just need to check on something quickly on a VM (I could just use the Azure app on my phone at that point).

  5. Allow connection to cloud shell from putty or other clients over ssh

    It would be awesome if there was an option to connect via putty or other ssh client to a cloud shell instance. I’m thinking the prompt app on an iPad for ssh to cloudshell to remove any overhead connecting I. A browser

  11. Timeout is to short, or needs to be configured to monitor for running processes.

    I have been trying to generate a listing of all of the blob sizes in a container, and it takes longer than the timeout settings and will not complete. If I run against a small container it works properly. Also, while it states I have been idle for 20 minutes I don't believe it was actually that long.

  12. Allow subscription selection as part of URL to https://shell.azure.com/

    It would be really nice if I could choose which subscription to work in as part of the URL for https://shell.azure.com/

    As a CSP we often work with a number of different tenants/subscriptions. It would be very useful if we could use links that opens the relvant tenant/subscription. These links would improve documentation for our CSP customers.

    https://shell.azure.com/?tenantId=xxxx&subscriptionId=xxxxx

    In the Azure portal it works well to specify a Tenant as follows:

    https://portal.azure.com/@<tenant>

    For example

    https://portal.azure.com/@mydomain.onmicrosoft.com

    So having the same possibility with the https://shell.azure.com/ URL would be very nice ;-)

  19. sqlpackage support

    It would be great if Cloud Shell supported sqlpackage.exe this would unblock the deployment of Azure SQL Database dacpac's from within Cloud Shell: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/tools/sqlpackage-download?view=sql-server-2017

  20. Add rest API support for cloudshell

    It will be great if azure exposes rest APIs to access the cloudshell, pass commands and get outputs.

    There are too many azure ad features that are only accessible via powershell. Microsoft graph API does not support all the functionalities including basics like get password policy, update password policy, enable MFA etc.

    Having cloudshell rest API, one can actually pass command to cloudshell from REST API interface and get the job done. No need to have powershell or azure CLI installed on myachine just to automate something.
