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.

    • 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?

                • Right click on Table Storage and "Open Table"

                  We have subscriptions with over 100,000 tables. This makes it really troublesome to open a table towards the end of the list. We would like to be able to open a specific table if we know the exact table name without having to load 1000 tables at a time and finding the table in the list.

                      • Quick delete of large blob directories

                        Deleting folders with large numbers of blobs can take a long time (I just completed deleting a folder with 40,000 blobs that took about 20 minutes to delete). Any speedup would be appreciated. Thanks!

                        • Please consider adding vNet/Gateway/LocalSite/SharedKey management functions

                          When there is more than on S2S VPN on a vNet, you need to hack the XML config files. Also with more than one S2S VPN, you can only add new LocalSites via the XML file as well. There are Powershell cmdlets you must for the Shared Keys, and also when in Resource Group land, even more frustrating... At least in classic Service Management land, you can hack a single XML file and get what you need done fairly efficiently. But a cross-functional view of your Service Management and Resource Group based networks would be awesome!

                                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.

                                • Delete Confirmation dialog should include the name of the table

                                  The prompt text for table removal currently says:'Are you sure you want to delete the selected table(s)'

                                  To prevent accidental deletion (for those bleary-eyed late-night dev sessions where mistakes do occur sometimes), the dialog should include/list the names of the objects being deleted.

                                  Reason: the current colouring for 'the selected objects' is not very distinct (currently light grey on white background) so there is room for error when confirming the dialog.

                                    • Allow deployment of Azure Management Studio via Intune

                                      I would love to be able to deploy Azure Management Studio to computers as part of a SOE for developers, however the installer has no silent option. Please provide a way to do this.

                                        • Provide support for AzureAccount (username/password) instead of Management Certificates

                                          Instead of adding a subscription connection that only support management certificates it would be great to be able to add subscriptions using a username/password login (Like in Visual Studio or PowerShell with the Add-AzureAccount cmdlet)

                                            We have started working on this. Over this weekend we released a new version of Azure Management Studio which has this feature. Currently you can manage ARM Storage Accounts using this functionality. Please update your version of AMS to start using this feature. More about this can be found on our blog at: http://blog.cerebrata.com/managing-azure-resource-manager-storage-accounts-through-azure-management-studio/.

                                            Do give it a try and let us know your feedback.

                                            Thanks!
