  3. 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.)

  4. Increase Tab-Completion performance

    Using tab completion feels very slow sometimes and may lock the shell for a few seconds (3-10). Tab completion is an essential tool for me to work with speed and not having to remember every command (discovering new functionality too).
    Due to its varying reliability i find myself going back to my local install a lot.

    Thanks for the feedback, at this moment we need more input to look into this! We’re regularly sync with the AZ CLI team to make sure performance is great on all fronts, but providing votes helps us prioritize our resources appropriately so please cast votes across ideas you feel are important to you!

  5. Do not require a storage account

    When you just want to execute some scripts on an environment, you perhaps do not need persistent storage.

    On some environments you don't have the permissions to create a storage account dedicated for this, and have to fallback on your own powershell/bash commandline.

    Make it an (advanced) option to not use storage when launching the shell, lowering the barrier even more to run a one-off command.

    Thanks for this suggestion – we currently plan to continue requiring storage so users can get the best experience possible with persisted state across all the interfaces Cloud Shell is available. Please upvote this if you agree though as we’re always listening to the community!

  6. Allow access to PowerShell from CSP account

    When attempting to use PowerShell in Cloud Shell with my CSP account, which has delegated Owner rights within Azure for the customer tenant, I get the error below. It works if I switch to a Global Admin account.

    Add-AzureRmAccount : Cannot validate argument on parameter 'AccountId'. The argument is null or empty. Provide an argument that is not null or empty, and then try the command again.
    At C:\Users\ContainerAdministrator\PSCloudShellStartup.ps1:73 char:71
    + ... ProfileModule\Add-AzureRMAccount @addAzureRMAccountParameters -ErrorA ...
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (:) [Add-AzureRmAccount], ParameterBindingValidationException

  8. Preconfigure PowerShell in Cloud Shell with PowerShell help files

    When we run Update-Help the downloaded help files are not persistent across PowerShell sessions because they are written in $pshome's subfolder.

    Could you preconfigure the Cloud Shell with the current PowerShell help files?

  9. 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, tag…

  11. Provide visual cue on defaults that cloud-shell chooses

    When a user clicks for cloud-shell in a portal, certain defaults are chosen for her. However the user is unaware of these defaults.

    It will be good to give a visual cue to indicate what is your default subscription in the cloud-shell.

    For e.g. the command prompt can be ‘user@AzureSubscriptionXyz :$ ‘
