  1. Remove or re-configure Azure Cloud Shell

    It is very easy to configure Azuer CLoud Shell. But there is no option to un-configure or re-configure it when you removed the File Share or entire Storage Account. Can't find any documentation about it either.

  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 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.)

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  12. Configurable destination for the drag/drop upload feature

    Right now, it uploads to /home/<username> (on Bash) and $home\CloudDrive (on PowerShell). Is it possible to make the destination configurable so that current directory will be used instead of the predefined paths?

  13. 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

  17. 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 ;-)

  18. "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?

  19. 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.
