  1. Allow selection of both the cspkg and cscfg at the same time!

    When deploying, and choosing the Blob storage account and container, I would appreciate the ability to choose both files simultaneously (I always put them in the same place and I have to navigate through the choices twice).

    Additionally, you go looking for the storage account information again, when you obviously already have them loaded, since they're part of the "Subscription" information that's already being displayed.

          • Formatting of Configuration XML.

            It would be REALLY nice if when you want to configure a deployment that the presented XML was properly formatted (line breaks, indentation, etc.). As it stands it is unreadable in the dialog and I have to copy it to an editor and reformat it.

            • Move Virtual Machine between subscriptions

              As a user of Azure IaaS, I occasionally create VMs in one subscription that I end up needing to use in another.

              At the moment, this is a convoluted process that is described in detail here: http://gauravmantri.com/2012/07/04/how-to-move-windows-azure-virtual-machines-from-one-subscription-to-another/

              This would be another very 'nice to have' feature in AMS.

                • Rearrange order of subscriptions

                  After I import my subscriptions, I want to be able to rearrange their order in the side bar.

                  So I have a Connection Group, which is some Subscriptions, and I can't change their order. They are stuck in the order in which they're imported.

                      • Allow creation of a new blob container when deploying Cloud Service

                        When creating a new Production/Staging deployment, there is an option to "Upload in Windows Azure Storage". You can select a storage account, and then a container to upload the cspkg and cscfg files.

                        I think it would be helpful to be able to create a new container from within that dialog instead of being forced to pick from an existing one. Otherwise I have to stop my flow, create a new container, and then go back to the deployment section.

                        • Ability to delete services that are in transitioning state (like Azure Portal)

                          When a service takes a long-time to scale up, it's stuck in "transitioning" state and the "Manage" button in Azure Management Studio shows greyed out options for everything (including "delete" and "stop"). This means we can lose control of the service.

                          Yet, when the service is transitioning I can still carry out these management operations in Azure Portal. It seems that Azure Management Studio is preventing us from being able to do the same things.

                          Can you remove the restrictions from Azure Management Studio so that we can carry out the same operations as Azure Portal?

                          • Add support for D3 VM sizes

                            When using the new Azure D3-size VMs (e.g. Standard_D3_v2), the size shows as "unknown" and has the wrong core count. Can you add support for these?
