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.

Important: Please note that automatic or manual upgrade of Azure Management Studio from version 1.4.0.2673 (or lower) to 1.5.0.151 (or higher) has an issue. We apologize for the inconvenience but please download the latest version from our website. This is only applicable if you’re upgrading from version 1.4.0.2673 or below. Thank you for your understanding.

  1. Allow user-defined storage account alias

    Allow user to define an alias to display instead of often-terse Azure-defined server name. For example, my Azure server name is "msftmecdevstoragediag", but I would rather name it something freindly like "MEC PreProd"

    • Have small triangle icons always rotate when selected

      Have small triangle icons in the navigation bar rotate when selected even if there is nothing under the item. This helps verify that the item was selected.

            While this is not on our roadmap at the moment, I am very curious to know the reasons behind this ask. Is there something that can be done via a Windows 8/Universal App that can’t be done via a native desktop client that we currently have.

            Would appreciate your thoughts on the same. Also, I would be very much interested in knowing your thoughts on having a cross-platform desktop app.

            Thanks!

            • Remember which monitor/screen the app was using

              I use the app with multiple monitors and when launching it always defaults to my centre one. It would be useful if the app remembered the last monitor it was used on, and then opened on that monitor the next time it was started.

                      • Ability to group applications in Application Group

                        It would be great to have the ability to the group the applications in the Appliation Group tab. Most applicaitons have DEV, TST, SVT and PROD instances and the ability to group them together would unclutter the interface and enable the users to find the application instance that they are looking for faster.

                                  The 'Delete/Cancel' context menu allows a user to stop/cancel a transfer in progress (example, Azure Table download). The same icon/option should be visible on the toolbar, enabled when an item is selected.

                                  • In Jump to, allow to query for the full list of matches, or add a "more button"

                                    Just what it says on the can. I partition tables/blobs/quques with a customer partition id. I would like to get a list of all tables etc that start with the partition key, but there is no way to get past the first X entries.

                                    Also letting you jump to on just tables or just queues, rather than the entire account would be nice.

                                    • add "Jump to" to the subscriptions branch of the tree, not just the root storage accounts

                                      I have access to the entire subscription via the subscriptions tree, including the storage accounts, but "jump to" is not available on that part of storage, only in the dedicated storage branch.

                                        The features are good it really helps me on my day by day work. The only problem that I am having with it is responsiveness. Please do some optimization to make the UI more responsive.

                                        • Plugins system

                                          It would be nice to include a Plugins feature in your application so we could add our own features when not available in the application code functionality.
