  1. Add HashiCorp Packer to Bash

    Bash already has Terraform from HashiCorp included. It would be nice to also have Packer (https://www.packer.io/) to build custom images from marketplace images.

  2. Since you don't provide full support for docker at least prove full support for docker-machine

    Currently docker-machine is the only way to run docker inside the Azure Cloud shell. Docker works to build images and run images, once you set up and eval a docker-machine. But if you want to push the image you created in the docker-machine to an ACR, you get the following message when you run the command: "az acr login..."

    This command requires running the docker daemon, which is not supported in Azure Cloud Shell.

    For other docker commands, you get the error "daemon not found" if the docker-machine isn't set up, For ACR, for some reason, you totally block use…

  3. 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.

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!

  6. Could not retrieve token from local cache

    I'm trying to run some data lake analytics CLI commands and running into this error:

    A Cloud Shell credential problem occurred. When you report the issue with the error below, please mention the hostname 'cc-72f9-62e894e1-1611694333-rkw3c'
    Could not retrieve token from local cache.

    This is causing the command to not be executed.

  14. make bash .profile file work in Cloud Shell

    Although there is a .profile file in a user's home directory in bash Cloud Shell, I could not find any evidence that it gets executed when starting a Cloud Shell session. It is possible to work around this with a hack in the .bashrc and an extra environment variable, but the behavior of bash startup scripts in bash Cloud Shell should be well-defined and documented.

  15. Ipad

    Eliminate double letters on new iPad Pro Keyboard.
    I.e., when I try to type “ls”, I get “llss”. The shell then tells me “llss” is not a recognized command.

  16. Allow output to be redirected to clipboard similar to PBcopy

    For example, I might have a large log file I want to grab the output of. Trying to get that into my clipboard via scrolling is a silly, futile undertaking. Allow the output to be redirected into a box that is easily copied.

  20. preinstalled bash-completion on Cloud Shell

    Because some tools include bash completion files same as Azure CLI. But it's based on bash-completion package. Please add preinstalled bash-completion from Xenial to Cloud Shell.
