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. Please stop adding features and IMPROVE STABILITY!

    I have the latest version on Win10 and it crashes multiple times a day. You seem to be deleting any improvement requests that concern stability. Either make a statement to your paying customers or remedy the situation, but please stop ignoring it.

    • Find table in the storage account

      There is currently no option to find/search a table if the storage accout has hundreds of tables. A find/search table feature would be highly helpful.

      • Enable blob metadata editing for an entire "tree"

        I have a large number of files under a container in a tree structure and I need to edit the cache control metadata property on ALL of them. Looks like I'm going to have to write my own app to do this. Would be great if I could somehow do this in Azure Management Studio.

          • 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"

            • Faster searching in table data

              It is really time consuming to search for data in tables even though we have provided the partition keys. Please make it faster or provide some tips to get results faster.

              • 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.

                    I have several times wished for a comparison utility similar to Beyond Compare that would work on files in BLOB storage and/or files on in PC folders.

                        This could be useful from both a learning perspective as well as serve as a transcript of activities performed using AMS.

                                  • When deleting by query that has just PartitionKey or RowKey defined, delete by Partition/Rowkey and don't do full scan.

                                    Currently when I have multiple conditions like this "PartitionKey eq 'this' or PartitionKey eq 'that'" then the query is very slow comparing to queries done separately when just providing one condition. It should be possible to determine if the conditions are including only PartitionKey/RowKey values, then make the query faster.

                                    • Search for a blob storage container by name by typing its name

                                      I have many blob storage containers (thousands) named with GUID. Finding a particular one is very long as there's no way to search for a blob storage name.

                                      I like to start typing its name and automatically be moved to the first match.... like in windows explorer.

                                      Similar to:

                                      • 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 a search bar in the Connection Group panel

                                          With many subscriptions it's very hard to get around the left panel of AMS. It would be much easier with a search bar that will search for storages & subscriptions, similar to the one in Visual Studio.
