  4. 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.

  6. Previous session is not restore when the Cloud Shell timeouts and reconnect

    Please preserve the sessions, commands and screen output and restore it back to as before when the shell timeout or disconnect due to outage.

    It is very important to be able to see our shell history and commands results. Especially when working in command line.

  7. Add sshpass to the toolset

    When trying to run some Ansible playbooks sometimes you need to have sshpass installed, like for this one: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/ansible/ansible-deploy-app-vmss. Thanks.

  9. unable to load extension ( storage-preview & azure-cli-iot-ext)

    Today I started getting this message after running a simple command (az groups list):

    Unable to load extension 'storage-preview'. Use --debug for more information.
    Unable to load extension 'azure-cli-iot-ext'. Use --debug for more information.

    Is there something wrong with my setup?

  12. func init

    func init and any func related commands do not work as listed on https://docs.microsoft.com/bs-latn-ba/azure/azure-functions/functions-create-first-azure-function-azure-cli?view=azure-devops-2019

    one apparently cannot use cloud shell for that example as azure-functions-core-tools are not installed in the cloud shell.

  13. I am using Azure CloudShell sandbox with iPad and Bluetooth keyboard. Thing keeps crashing! Love, Linda in Mount Shasta, California

    I wish I had enough software knowledge to debug this iPad/Azure/Bluetooth keyboard communications problem! That’s what brings me to Azure. I am a rural techie, artist, writer, and entrepreneuress living with a sacred mountain in my backyard. I have pledged myself to be a channel for the Tech Angels.

  15. Do not include back slashes (\) in the characters available for auto generated deployment credentials

    The back slash "\" is a control character is Bash and must be escaped in order to be used correctly.
