  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  11. Enable-AzVMPSRemoting silently fails targetting a Linux VM

    If a target Linux VM is different than Ubuntu 18.04, Enable-AzVMPSRemoting silently fails to install PowerShell Core. The reason is the hard-coded URL for a PowerShell Core package:
    sudo wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/18.04/packages-microsoft-prod.deb

  12. The red on blue can be hard to read for "color challenged" people

    The red on blue can be hard to read for "color challenged" people. Powershell allows customization of font and background color. It would be nice that Azure CLI allow customization of colors as well.

  14. 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?

  15. 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 access to clipboard between Cloud Shell and Computer

    Allow clip, Set-Clipboard and Get-Clipboard to interact with accessing computer. This would allow for something like -

    Get-SuperInfo | Clip

    Then the data be on the computer.
