  1. Ctrl+Shift+C to copy would be a truly wonderful thing

    Ctrl+Shift+C to copy
    Ctrl+Shift+V to paste

    Ctrl+Shift+X to cut is probably asking too much...

  2. Az Cloud Shell To Verify Credentials is unstable.

    Cloud shell - verify credentials with az aks get-credentials --resource-group X --name Y
    Kubectl get pods --all-namespaces -> gives a prompt for the device code
    This doesn't return in azure cloud shell for some team members.

    Need the ability to verify Az credentials via Cloud Shell for using kubectl get pods command for RBAC enabled clusters.

  4. Make cloud shell a service so we can open support tickets

    Currently it is not possible to create a support ticket because the process inculdes a dropdown to select a service.

    Since cloud shell is not a service, this is impossible. There is no official way to get help when cloud shell is broken.

    In this suggestion, we were told to make a ticket
    https://feedback.azure.com/forums/598699-azure-cloud-shell/suggestions/32817547-serviceunavailable

    But that's not possible.

  5. UK region support for storage account

    I have several customers who do not allow resources outside UK regions which prevents the use of Cloud Shell.

  6. Resize content of main window when cloudshell is open at the bottom

    When the cloudshell is open the content of the main window does not resize so on some blades the "submit" button is hidden behind the cloudshell. The only way to reach it is to close cloudshell or minimize. If the main window content resized or if it became scrollable it would help. The other option for which there is already an idea which I upvoted is for a pop out cloudshell window

  7. Increase limit for number of concurrent users per tenant per region

    Currently there is a limit of 20 concurrent users per tenant per region for Cloud Shell. Some users would like to have the limit increased so it allows more concurrent users.

  8. The cloud shell does not work on Chrome on iPad - command prompt hidden.

    The cloud shell is next to useless with Chrome on iPad. Both shell.azure.com and portal.azure.com cloud shell has the same issue where the software keyboard or the keyboard toolbar with a hardware keyboard/smart keyboard hide the command prompt once it's positioned further down the terminal window or the bottom of the window - which is most the time.

    Checked on Safari and all seems to work fine so this is specific to Chrome browser. (and possibly the Microsoft Edge browser too as that is Chromium based?)

  10. Current directory when connecting to CloudShell (PowerShell) and difference in execution result of ls -l / dir / Get-ChildItem

    Hi expert,

    Current directory ($PWD) and home directory ($HOME) when connected to CloudShell (bash) are both "/home/[username]", but current directory ($PWD) when connected to CloudShell (PowerShell) is displayed as "Azure:/".


    • bash
      [username]@Azure:~$ echo $HOME
      /home/[username]
      [username]@Azure:~$ echo $PWD
      /home/[username]


    • PowerShell
      PS Azure:> echo $HOME
      /home/[username]
      Azure:/
      PS Azure:> echo $PWD
      Azure:/


    Also I execute the ls -l command, the information in the "/home/[username]" directory ($HOME) is displayed, but I execute dir (Get-ChildItem) command, subscription information (Same as Get-AzSubscription execution result) is displayed.

    I want the current directory of bash and PowerShell, and ls -l / dir / Get-ChildItem to behave…

  11. Add netaddr to python in Cloud Shell

    Ansible in Cloudshell is missing the ability to use one of its native functions, ipaddr. To use this, it needs netaddr to be installed onto the underlying architecture.

  12. Make the Azure Cloud Shell container available for public download

    The Azure Cloud Shell uses containers on the back end. It would be great if the container images used for Cloud Shell were publicly available and open source. The existing images are a great start for those who want to start using Azure and the extended tooling that is included. For those who want to avoid the dreaded timeout or would like to customize the container, it would be great to be able to grab the images and launch them in ACI or locally.

  13. SSH to vm with private IP

    I think it would be awesome if there was some way to SSH into a VM on a VNET within my subscription via the Private IP. I know you can connect via Public IP, but within my environment that's not something we have in place.

    My azure user ID context allows me to work with components that I specifically have rights too, and accessing linux VMs under that context with the private IP would be great. This way I wouldn't have to connect with a third party app, over a VPN.

  15. General Tabs and Entering Machines

    Adding tabs to the shell for Bash and PowerShell will make life much easier.
    In addition, please make it possible to access vm directly from the shell.

  16. 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

  18. Add wildcard support to "download" command

    The "download" command is really nice to allow you to download files from Azure Cloud Shell to your local machine. It would be great if the "download" command supported wildcard file names (such as "*") to enable downloading multiple files at once.

    For example, "download *.cer" would download all files with the ".cer" extension in the current directory.

    Currently, if you attempt to do this, the "download" command will display an error message.

  19. 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).

  20. Add Cloud Shell as a trusted services exception

    Add Cloud Shell as a trusted services exception so it can connect to "Firewalls and virtual networks" configured storage accounts.
