  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  11. The red on blue can be hard to read for "color challenged" people

    The red on blue can be hard to read for "color challenged" people. Powershell allows customization of font and background color. It would be nice that Azure CLI allow customization of colors as well.

  14. CLS command doesn't clears the screen.

    While working with Azure Cloud Shell - Powershell Preview, I observed that running ""CLS" command doesn't clears that screen, rather it hides the old commands & their output & it can be viewed by scrolling up.

    It would be nice to have same functionality as we do have in powershell for CLS function.

  15. BUG: Connect-AzureAD command does not work inside CloudShell if it is in a .ps1 script

    Repro: If you just type Connect-AzureAD on a PowerShell Cloud Shell, it works.

    If you type in an save "Connect-AzureAD" in a ps1 file, upload your ps1 file and then call the ps1 file from Cloud Shell, it fails with below errors:

    InvalidOperation: /opt/microsoft/powershell/7/profile.ps1:60

  16. 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.

  18. The number of allowed users is too short

    I got this error message

    Failed to provision a Cloud Shell: {"code":"TenantActiveUserQuotaReached","message":"Tenant '604c1504-c6a3-4080-81aa-b33091104187' has '301' active users in location 'westus', which exceeds the active user quota."}

    I think the number of allowed users is too short. I cannot advance in the modules becuase my work cannot be checked

  19. 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.
