Visual Studio IDE

Announcement: Last fall, we migrated this forum to Visual Studio Developer Community to provide you one convenient and responsive system for all feedback. As the final step in the migration, this forum will be closed off completely on June 1st, 2019. We encourage you to visit Visual Studio Developer Community where you can now suggest new ideas, browse and vote on existing ideas, and engage with Visual Studio teams.

We’d like your suggestions and ideas to help us continuously improve future releases of Visual Studio, so we’ve partnered with UserVoice, a third-party service, to collect your feedback. Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos for which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft.

This site is for feature suggestions; if you need to file a bug, you can visit our Developer Community website to get started.

Note: your use of the portal and your submission is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service & Privacy Policy and license terms.

We look forward to hearing from you!
- The Visual Studio Team

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Improve SQL Azure support within VS2013

    I've setup a Cloud Service and can see that just fine via the Azure tools within VS2013. Same goes for storage and websites. They all show just fine, but my SQL Azure databases do not show up. I am able to add them manually via "data connections", so the firewall is setup appropriately, but eh Azure tools do not see them.

  2. Make Logging in to Azure from Visual Studio work when using 2 factor identification for your Microsoft Account

    I can't login to the Azure Tools for Visual Studio. I've got 2 factor authentication set up for my Microsoft Account.

    I get sent to the page that tells me to wait for the app to allow. I allow the access, then I get sent back to the login screen again! So annoying!

    Does nobody on the Azure Tools for Visual Studio team use "two step authentication?" http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/two-step-verification-faq

    This is dead simple to reproduce.

    1. Have an azure account tied to a two-step authentication enabled Microsoft Account.
    2. Try to use that account in Visual Studio.

  3. Allow to connect multiple accounts for Azure in Server Explorer

    I have two separated accounts to manage Azure subscriptions and currently I need to sign out my first account and sign in my second account on the Azure node in Server Explorer.

    Why can I use multiple accounts without having to sign out and sign in everytime?

    You can connect to multiple accounts in Cloud Explorer’s settings panel by clicking the gear icon. You can view Cloud Explorer if you have Azure SDK 2.7 (or greater) installed – just go to View → Cloud Explorer.

    Alternatively, you can right-click on the Azure node of Server Explorer and under “Manage subscriptions” you can easily switch between multiple accounts.
