  2. Canadia Region support for storage account

    It would be nice to support the canadian region(s) for the storage account that stores the cloud drive. Customers are requesting this more and more.

  3. 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.

  4. Australia Region support for storage account

    It would be helpful to support the Australian region(s) for the storage account that stores the cloud drive. This is a pain point for majority of financial customers who have regulatory compliance requirements.

  7. 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.

  8. 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).

  9. "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?

  10. 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.

  14. 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

  20. 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 ;-)
