  1. Using && in where the clause for LINQ to SQL

    the where queries with && are not supported. It would be good to be able to do so

      • Show activity for a queue

        Show the activity on a queue. Use the queue logs to drive the information. I should be able to look at the activity and see that a message was written and then read along with time, etc.

          • Keep focus of selected tab (i.e. Metadata) when navigating blobs

            When presented with the list of blobs in a container, if I select the Metadata tab and then navigate to the next blob, the Properties tab gets focus. I see these as independent navigations. Whichever tab is selected should stay selected regardless of which blob I select.

              • Mount a page blob snapshot, by VM or web or worker role.

                If a page blob snapshot is mounted by a VM it will be read only and can mounted by many VM's simultaneously. Great for management of a resource that is shared by a vnet of Vm's. E.g. config file, executables etc. Please facilitate this in your excellent app.

                • Display Queue Dates/Times in Local time if that is the system setting

                  Currently queue dates and times are only displayed in US-style UTC format - they do not use the global setting for display formats.

                  • Allow user to add "Friendly Name" to ServiceBus/Topic/Subscriptions IDs when viewed in AMS UI.

                    Feeds/Accounts subscriptions are a 40 character reference in my case. Takes a bit of work to diagnosse which feed is for which account.

                    Story.
                    Allow AMS user to add a "Friendly Name" label to a subscription reference that would be displayed in addition to the existing referencing allowing the user to easily identify a feed subscription function.

                    • 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.

                      • Allow service bus to peek bottom x messages

                        at the moment we can only peek the top x messages, and I don't have any way of examining the most recent audit queue messages when there are 22000 messages in a queue. Even selecting 'all' only peeks the top thirty or so.

                              Azure now supports content-disposition header for blobs. I need to be able to set that in the blob's propertites in AMS.

                              • Force delete of Blobs and Containers

                                I would like to see an option added for force deletion of Blobs, which automatically breaks the lease on a Blob and then deletes all the selected Blobs. Now you have to select each Blob individually, break the lease on each individual Blob, before you can delete all selected Blobs at once.

                                I would like to see the same functionality added for Containers, where first all Blobs are forcefully deleted, after which the Container is deleted. Now you have to first delete all the Blobs and then delete the Container, which may still have a lease on it as well…

                                • An option to force the upload with LowerCase name

                                  I have seen that when “Upload” a file as Block Blob, then to download it from an http URL it is strictly required to be precise with case sensitive characters.
                                  May be usefoul if in the “Azure Explorer” an option allows to upload each file name in lowercase.

                                  An example:

                                  Source
                                  Windows 8
                                  MyPicture.jpg

                                  Upload
                                  Azure
                                  mypicture.jpg

                                  • Event Log Viewer, add right click Copy to Friendly View

                                    The xml view of an event log entry has a right click context menu as it's a web format. But the friendly view does not.
                                    I really want to be able to just copy and paste a message into an email or IM to communicate to a developer, but the only current way is taking pieces from the xml view which can be tedious.

                                        • Ability to Execute Custom Tool

                                          - Placed as toolbar (just like visual studio custom tool)
                                          - Or launch batch/script/powershell/etc ... after deploy
