  1. copy-paste for "code" editor doesn't work.

    I tried to complete the quick hands-on intro for Azure Key Vault following the instructions but it is impossible to paste the examples of the code via shell. I can paste the examples to my local notepad but it is impossible to paste it thru the shell to editor of the sandbox.

  6. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. default

    How to set a default Cloud Shell, i.e, Bash or Powershell? When log on, it always started with Powershell(Preview) and then I have to switch it to Bash. Is there a way to set default Cloud Shell enviornment?

  14. Respect the shell choice in the URL when onboarding new users

    If you navigate to https://shell.azure.com/powershell, and you haven't used Cloud Shell yet, you are brought through an onboarding process that eventually asks you which shell you want to use, Bash or PowerShell. When you specify the shell you want in the URL, users should not have to make that choice, and instead should be onboarded and then brought directly into the shell that the URL was trying to bring them to.

  17. 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.

  18. Unable to mount persistent storage

    Here's the scenario (that you can reproduce):
    - User logged in to Azure portal (commercial cloud). User has role 'reader' assigned at the subscription level.
    - User clicks the ;Cloud shell' button in the portal, goes to advanced settings, picks a subscription, existing storage account, picks a name for the Azure file share
    - Cloud Shell starts but fails to mount Azure file share - see attached image

    Now, user gets 'owner' role in a specific Resource Group, and wishes to setup persistent storage for Cloud Shell under a new Storage Account in this new RG, but
    a) the Cloud…

  19. ask me if I want PowerShell or Bash when I open the cloudshell

    I want to be asked which cloudshell I want before it opens. I use Bash and PowerShell and go back and forth very often. So I would like the cloud shell to ask me when I start which I want, rather than open it have to change

  20. Minimal toolbar

    The toolbar takes up too much space. Any chance that the tools could be put alongside the top line?

    Some sort of autohide toggle would be great, such as the Alt used in vscode. Oh, and dark colours... ;)
