  2. Option for a persistent session where you can choose the node type

    This could have a charge but would be a persistent session that you can come back to. Ideally a choice of memory/node type and it could integrate into the Azure Cloud Shell by having the session name as a choice in the drop-down menu (currently showing "Bash" or "Powershell"). Here a user could run long running tasks and something like GNU screen or tmux can be used to keep the history/layout.

  3. Hideable file browser panel to the left supporting drag and drop

    Have a panel (that can be hidden/collapsed) with the home directory to the left of the shell where files can be copied to and from the local machine with drag and drop.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Detect file shares in storage account for use during setup process

    When you are setting up Azure Cloud Shell, under the advanced options you have Create New/Use Existing options for the resource group, storage account, and file share. Use Existing works properly for the resource group and storage account, allowing users to choose an option from a list, and automatically setting the option if there is only one to choose from; however, for the file share option, if you select the Use Existing radio button nothing happens -- you don't get a list of shares to choose from, and if there is only one share, it is not automatically chosen. Please…

  12. try it + back space

    The Try It button is such a good idea.
    However, naturally we all use the Back Space key to correct something we typed incorrectly.
    Unfortunately this keyboard key is used by the browser to go back to the former web page, and everything is gone...

  14. Allow -Subscription parameter in all cmdlets

    Many of the Azure PowerShell cmdlets require the subscription name or ID to function. Many cmdlets that should allow the use of the subscription name or ID do not.

    For example, Get-AzureRmApplicationGateway doesn't allow you to specify the subscription, you need to run separate cmdlets to change the context/scope. Other cmdlets, like Get-AzureRmRoleAssignment, require the Subscription be provided, but this value is ignored per https://github.com/Azure/azure-powershell/issues/3884

    Please apply Microsoft's design philosophy to the Azure PowerShell functionality, as the lack of consistency is incredibly confusing, and issues like the one posted above have personally cost me several days of effort.

  15. az cli in bash command does not work well with Bash pipe commands

    "az account show | grep -i tenantID" hangs in the Cloud Shell and has to be ended by ctrl+c

    Other pipeline in bash does not work well neither, for instance, more/less/tail.

  16. Enter-AzureRmVM Created NSG Rule Should Not Be Persistent

    Currently, when Enter-AzureRmVm is used, a Network Security Group rule opening WinRm HTTP 5985 is opened for any source and destination IP. When the session is closed, the NSG Rule remains.

    This rule should be destroyed when closing the session. After talking to Hemant, the most likely best approach would be to set a default session time limit, and add a parameter to specify a limit if the default is not desired. Then, automation could be scheduled at the specified time limit to destroy the NSG that was created. This would allow the VM to only have the network security…

  18. Provide visual cue on defaults that cloud-shell chooses

    When a user clicks for cloud-shell in a portal, certain defaults are chosen for her. However the user is unaware of these defaults.

    It will be good to give a visual cue to indicate what is your default subscription in the cloud-shell.

    For e.g. the command prompt can be ‘user@AzureSubscriptionXyz :$ ‘

  19. Feedback that is common across PowerShell and Bash in Azure Cloud Shell

    What are the possibilities of combining OneDrive for Business with a subfolder on CloudDrive? That would be great having a central point for scripts etc etc... Just thinking out loud...
