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. Introduce split view for blob management like most FTP clients

    The blob management experience is not very intuitive. Could you introduce some sort of split view, like FileZilla, that makes uploading and downloading blobs between local and cloud way easier?

    • Table query drop down should show recent queries

      I think saved queries are interesting but recently used queries are more interesting.

      Can't the query text drop down reflect queries I've recently run?

      • Query Builder should apply sensible defaults to Data Type and Operator

        The Query Builder UI requires too many clicks.

        I would like to see the query rows prepopulated with the most common operators. I suspect the most common Data Type would be string and the most common Operator would be =.

        • Smart grouping on per role instance charts

          Show CPU usage lines across role instances in the same color, perhaps using steps in brightness. Currently you display CPU lines in different colors which makes interpreting the chart quite difficult.

          Also, the scale is out of wack for each line. Visually this makes it really hard to quickly determine what is actually going on. You have to look at the scale points on the side and then at the summary to see which each colored line represents.

          • Trace Logs - download messages for both worker and web role together

            Hi,

            When refreshing the ‘Trace Logs’ view, it only downloads trace messages for the worker role; the webrole is ignored. To load both I have to open a new view and right away messages for both roles show. Then when I hit refresh, it only loads messages for the one role.

            Please fix this when you get chance.

            • Ability to discover the storage accounts used for data and diagnostics in web and worker roles

              I can't count how many times I open up a deployment, then open up the config file, then find the storage account and manually copy the name and key to a separate file, then go and open up a storage account connection. It would be very easy for AMS/CSS to parse that out of a config file and enable a list of "storage account connections" already prepopulated with data from running deployments.

              • Toggle read-only table attributes

                I'd like the ability to toggle read-only attributes at the table level rather than just the storage account level, as it currently is. This would remove the chance of accidentally writing over important data in certain tables without having to apply it to tables you wish to still write to.

                • Implement the 'old' view of perf counters

                  I am used to following one view of perf counters as in previous versions of your software. Is it possible to have this feature in AMS? I have been struggling with the new view, which I find less useful.

                  • Charts with byte data points

                    It would be great if there was an option to switch between bytes, megabytes and gigabytes on charts. Showing bytes is quite useless, with the exception of network traffic.

                    • Introduce an icon for queue configuration settings

                      Maybe a little icon on the far left of the title bar of the queue. When you click it drops down to let you select which settings type you want to bring up. Anything you can do to reduce the words and icons I think will help. There is a lot of stuff going on in the UI already, and giving real estate to items that won't be used all that often just takes up space. Later, as you add new features, these things start to get moved around and people get confused about where they went. If you keep…
