  1. Allow cloudshells to be whitelisted in network security groups

    We whitelist IP's that are allowed to access privileged services. We'd like to be able to whitelist cloudshells for our staff members.

  2. ask me if I want PowerShell or Bash when I open the cloudshell

    I want to be asked which cloudshell I want before it opens. I use Bash and PowerShell and go back and forth very often. So I would like the cloud shell to ask me when I start which I want, rather than open it have to change

  3. Does not work well on ipad pro with keyboard

    Just like in the Monaco based app editor there is no support for the cursor keys on the console window when working with an external keyboard and the ipad. Should be possible to solve because the site http://codeanywhere.com works with cursor keys in the editor.

  4. VSTS CLI in Cloud Shell

    It would be helpful to have access to VSTS CLI in Bash/PowerShell Cloud Shell. Any plans to add it to a set of preconfigured tools?

  5. Keyboard shortcuts for Cloud Shell

    Today, if you want to start Cloud Shell or max/min a terminal in the Portal, you need to click on icons. It would be nice to do those tasks from the keyboard.

  6. Cloud Shell should come with preinstalled Azure Building Blocks npm package

    Both, Bash and PowerShell Cloud Shell have pre-requisites to run Azure Building Blocks. Cloud Shell should come with azbb instead of a user performing the installation steps https://github.com/mspnp/template-building-blocks/wiki/Install-Azure-Building-Blocks-in-Azure-Cloud-Shell

  7. Add support for running Azure Cloud Shell in secure Azure subscription

    I'm working in a subscription where I only give users the minimum permissions that are necessary. I would like these users to have access to Azure Cloud Shell, but I want to have it pre-configured for them before they even try. For this, I need the following:

    1. An API (and ideally one or more PowerShell cmdlets) that allows for the initial configuration of Cloud Shell to be done automatically for a user before they even try to access Cloud Shell. This would create the resource group if it did not already exist in the subscription, create the storage account,…

  8. Add safe word/line deletion shortcut support

    Please add support for Ctrl+Backspace(or other browser safe alternative) to delete whole words and another command to clear the whole line.
    (Linux clear line and clear word commands Ctrl+w and Ctrl+u are a no-go in a browser.)

  9. Update docker-machine version of Cloud Shell for "docker-machine mount" with sshfs to share files between CloudShell and docker container

    Though we have great experience operating docker-machine (device including Azure) from Cloud Shell, we cannot `docker-machine mount` to sync files between Cloud Shell and docker container on docker-machine, due to docker-machine version and lack of sshfs package.
    https://docs.docker.com/machine/reference/mount/

    As we can use VS code on CloudShell, it will be much greater experience for us to `docker-machine mount` and edit files on VS code.
    Please consider enhancing the experience by updating docker-machine version and adopt sshfs package.

  12. Tutorial - resource deleted

    During the fundamentals tutorial it came up twice that my temporary group and vm have been deleted (linux). This is unacceptable and frustrates right from the beginning of learning to deal with Azure.

  16. Tool(s) come with AI equipped to suit the transplant into the system.. something like analytical.. SQL integrated and pure bit system

    Tool(s) come with AI equipped to suit, assist the usage and transplant into the system.. something like analytical.. SQL integrated and pure bit system so it will be lightweight.. productive and self-secure in order to facilitate the low end user. Therefore more users will likely to use which may contribute to another useful sets of data.

  18. Add a Dark Mode for the Toolbar

    It would be easier on the eyes if the toolbar could be made dark to fit with the dark terminal window.

  19. Fix the issue with "docker daemon not found"

    I've presented several Microsoft Azure events where Microsoft's lab instructions include steps that use Cloud Shell (Linux), and run various docker commands. This used to work fairly well, but in the past few months we've been getting the "docker daemon not found" error. Please fix this so we can present Microsoft's events without lab issues!
