  1. Allow PASTE into Cloud Shell

    ALlow PASTE into cloud shell. Its really annoying that the "TRY IT" on this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/governance/resource-graph/concepts/explore-resources

    have to be manually entered. Why doesn't PASTE work (it should find the plaintext version of the paste buffer by default)? In Chrome, only PASTE AS PLAINTEXT works. In Edge, forget it.

  2. Move the shell vertically to the side

    Have the ability to move the shell to the right of the page vertically instead of the bottom. Sometimes, I need to navigate the portal and the shell at the same time and I have to continually move the shell up and down in order to see things in the portal.

  4. Restore the ability to map a network drive to Azure File Storage

    This used to be a feature in Cloud Shell. Then it disappeared sometime in the summer of 2018. Apparently it's something to do with the switch from windows to Linux.

    If you go to Azure File Storage and click the ellipsis you can still get a snippet of code that is supposed to mount a Z drive to that File Share. Only it doesn't work any more.

    I rasied a bug for it here:
    https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/8829#issuecomment-461560590

    And got told it was a bug. Therefore could I request it as a new feature.
    Which I am not sure makes total sense. But…

  6. Support timezones in PowerShell

    CloudShell with PowerShell supports Get-Timezone but not Set-Timezone. On the other hand CloudShell with Bash does support setting the timezone with TZ command.

    PowerShell should provide the same capability so that file datetimes will show user's local time.

  8. Enable-AzVMPSRemoting silently fails targetting a Linux VM

    If a target Linux VM is different than Ubuntu 18.04, Enable-AzVMPSRemoting silently fails to install PowerShell Core. The reason is the hard-coded URL for a PowerShell Core package:
    sudo wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/18.04/packages-microsoft-prod.deb

  9. Unable to mount persistent storage

    Here's the scenario (that you can reproduce):
    - User logged in to Azure portal (commercial cloud). User has role 'reader' assigned at the subscription level.
    - User clicks the ;Cloud shell' button in the portal, goes to advanced settings, picks a subscription, existing storage account, picks a name for the Azure file share
    - Cloud Shell starts but fails to mount Azure file share - see attached image

    Now, user gets 'owner' role in a specific Resource Group, and wishes to setup persistent storage for Cloud Shell under a new Storage Account in this new RG, but
    a) the Cloud…

  12. Fix New-AzureADMSInvitation

    I already created an issue on Github. Please look at:
    https://github.com/AzureAD/azure-activedirectory-powershell/issues/24
    It seems like a known error as I also found this:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/ie/en-US/81140ed7-29f1-4301-ac8f-3e3f01717e31/powershell-azuread-newazureadmsinvitation-getting-an-object-reference-not-set-to-an-instance-of-an?forum=WindowsAzureAD
    and this:
    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49288405/azure-ad-powershell-cloud-object-reference-not-set-to-an-instance-of-an-objec

    It would be even better if you could integrate this function into the new Az module.
    This function is literally the only reason we have to use the AzureAD module instead of just the Az module.

  14. msonline

    MSOnline Module is not working in the shell. Some commands like Get-MsolDomainFederationSettings are only available in this module. This module should be allowed to work. The cloud shell says the module is installed and imported however the commands are not recognized.

    Get-AzureADMSLifecyclePolicyGroup doesn't work correctly since 23-rd August 2019. I tried with module AzureADPreview&AzureAD. I tried also with different PCs.

  19. It's time to ditch the throwback background color

    PowerShell Core uses a black background, everywhere EXCEPT on Azure CloudShell, where it's using a color inspired by WindowsPowerShell's old DarkMagenta color (which is ironic, since the actual DarkMagenta color on CloudShell is set to purple).

    Please get with the times, and change the default to black.
