Azure Management Studio

I have a humble request to make: While it certainly helps when you upvote a feedback item, it would be super useful to us if you can take a moment and add comment to that item as to why you’re upvoting that item. That would help us understand your requirement much better. Plus it would give us an opportunity to engage in a conversation with you (one thing we cherish the most).

Or if you’d prefer, please feel free to email me.

  1. Provide a graph of the approx number of messages in a queue so that queue size can be monitored

    It would be excellent if you could poll a specified queue and graph the value for the approx number of messages in the queue so that the size can be monitoried more closely

    • allow download of queue items

      When viewing the items of a queue, it would be great to have a select all capability and to then download copies of the queue items for offline processing. (Or even a select all in general for bulk deletes)

      • Add a scratchpad area for capturing queue messages / editing their content

        We spend a lot of time fiddling with queues (implementing command messages) and it would be lovely to have a feature such as Fiddlers scratchpad - which allows you to capture previous requests and edit & then replay them. This is really useful if you're doing integration testing and want to add test messages onto the queue (and is a small improvement over the existing new message feature - in that it would be lovely to have a log of previous messages you've created, rather than having to have many txt files with message contents in them).

        • Queues should show the number of messages in each queue

          This is actually a regression from Cloud Storage Studion 2

          • Add JSON formatting to the formatting of Queue storage

            It would be fantastic if the Queue Storage could display the content of the message in JSON format.

            • Queue view should have popup window to view full details

              I like the Queue View but often it is hard to see the full message details. I'd love to have the ability to open a message in a popup window that is resizable so I could make my full message be visible without scrolling. Then it would be awesome if there were Next/Prev buttons that would move the the next/previous message in the queue without changing the popup window size or location.

                    • Show activity for a queue

                      Show the activity on a queue. Use the queue logs to drive the information. I should be able to look at the activity and see that a message was written and then read along with time, etc.

                      • Show raw base64 Queue Content

                        I have some gzipped binary payloads on the azure queue. It would be nice to see the base64 string instead of the sea of garbage characters "...������9�I�Z9..." that shows in the "Content" field (version 1.4.0.1711).

                        I could copy the base64 string and quickly transform it in the terminal into something useful for me.

                        • Display Queue Dates/Times in Local time if that is the system setting

                          Currently queue dates and times are only displayed in US-style UTC format - they do not use the global setting for display formats.
