  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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

  6. 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... ;)

  7. Cloud Shell Prompt is hidden when using the iPad Pro Keyboard

    I use the power shell with my iPAD Pro keyboard. It is great, specially when I am on the road or an airplane. The problem with cloud shell prompt is there is a system bar at the bottom of the screen when the keyboard is connected showing the iOS shortcuts, but blocking my view of the prompt last row. I have to ‘clear’ the screen to be at the top again. Maybe adding some padding on the CSS for iOS devices would be helpful.

  10. New-AzureRmNetworkInterface

    To me it appears that this PowerShell function does not work sensibly.

    Given the fragment

    $if = New-AzureRmNetworkInterface -Name "vm001-if" -ResourceGroupName 'MyRes002' `
    -Subnet $subNet -NetworkSecurityGroup $nsg `
    -Location "North Europe" -PrivateIpAddress "10.0.0.4" ;

    I get the error message :

    New-AzureRmNetworkInterface : Cannot parse the request.
    StatusCode: 400
    ReasonPhrase: Bad Request
    OperationID : 'a3a06484-a586-4185-86ed-417cdb68b3d6'
    At line:1 char:7
    + $if = New-AzureRmNetworkInterface -Name "ttj-vm001-if" -ResourceGroup ...
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : CloseError: (:) [New-AzureRmNetworkInterface], NetworkCloudException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.Azure.Commands.Network.NewAzureNetworkInterfaceCommand

    It appears that the function expects to obtain the subnet mask. I would assume that it should get this from the subnet…

  14. 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.

  15. dynamic storage account reset

    I'm a bit miffed. I had many files in my storage account and found that my storage account was reset. All of my files are gone and there is no way to recover them. The point of a storage account is that it is persistent and backed up across regions. There is no way to back it up, take a snapshot or recover files.

  16. Additional US Region Support

    It would be nice to offer cloud shell in additional US regions, specifically East-US2 and US-Central. Those are the two primary regions that we are using today. This would help when trying to leverage scripts to run locally in those regions.

  18. Allow PASTE into Cloud Shell

    ALlow PASTE into cloud shell. Its really annoying that the "TRY IT" on this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/azure/governance/resource-graph/concepts/explore-resources

    have to be manually entered. Why doesn't PASTE work (it should find the plaintext version of the paste buffer by default)? In Chrome, only PASTE AS PLAINTEXT works. In Edge, forget it.

  20. Virtual Azure Cloud Shell sucks, let us do this in the more stable environment of VS.

    I worked through a tutorial and it hung at the git commit stage where a password must be entered. I had to restart the virtual shell and redo a bunch of nonsense. Let these tutorials be set up through VS so it's a more stable CLI environment--let us use Azure sandbox, but have it be non-virtualized, so it works better. Let us use our actual githubs instead of an unstable game version.
