  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Tab Completion Shortcut in iOS App

    A Tab completion shortcut in the mobile app (iOS) would be extremely helpful, as iOS devices do not have a "Tab key."
    There are currently shortcuts for Restart and Paste.

  5. 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.)

  7. "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?

  9. Provide API for admins to pre-configure Azure Cloud Shell for users so that the onboarding process is not necessary

    For a user to use Azure Cloud Shell, they must have:
    1. An Azure Storage Account tagged with ms-resource-usage=azure-cloud-shell.
    2. A file share in that Azure Storage account where the cloud shell files will be stored.
    3. Some black magic that configures their user account and/or the file share so that Cloud Shell knows they're set up before it brings them into a new Cloud Shell session.

    Administrators can complete items 1 and 2 using ARM and PowerShell, respectively, but not item 3, so at the moment it is impossible to provision Azure Cloud Shell such that future Cloud Shell…

  10. 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?

  11. 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.

  13. Cloud Shell Prompt is hidden when using the iPad Pro Keyboard

    I use the power shell with my iPAD Pro keyboard. It is great, specially when I am on the road or an airplane. The problem with cloud shell prompt is there is a system bar at the bottom of the screen when the keyboard is connected showing the iOS shortcuts, but blocking my view of the prompt last row. I have to ‘clear’ the screen to be at the top again. Maybe adding some padding on the CSS for iOS devices would be helpful.

  14. 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

  16. ALlow easy way to update Azure CLI in Cloud Shell

    When I type az --version in Cloud Shell, it tells me I have 2 updates available and gives me a link on how to apply them. The documentation leads to instructions on installation on Windows, but not on how to update in Cloud Shell. I have been Googling for an hour, and I can't find any way to do this. There should be an easy way to do this.

  18. SSH to vm with private IP

    I think it would be awesome if there was some way to SSH into a VM on a VNET within my subscription via the Private IP. I know you can connect via Public IP, but within my environment that's not something we have in place.

    My azure user ID context allows me to work with components that I specifically have rights too, and accessing linux VMs under that context with the private IP would be great. This way I wouldn't have to connect with a third party app, over a VPN.

  19. 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 ;-)
