  1. [PowerShell] Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session

    Maintain Powershell Credentials when selecting other tools in the same session. Currently if you are in a powershell session with a remote windows 10 machine, and you select another tool and then re-select powershell, your command history as well as your credentials are lost and need to be re-entered. This should persist through selecting other tools or you should implement a tabbed/blade UI similar to alt-tab environment on windows.

  3. [ui] add PowerShell hints to the various user interfaces

    Since all of the Honolulu output is based on WMI and CIM calls executed through PowerShell, it would be useful to have a link in the right hand pane (perhaps the details pane) that will expose what commands were issued to gather the displayed information. This supports PowerShell's goal of ease of learning and discoverability. You use Honolulu to execute one management task against one machine, learn the PowerShell, and you can execute the same task against as many machines as you want.

  4. [Powershell] Copy/Paste Keyboard shortcuts

    ctrl+c and ctrl+v would be very useful in the powershell window.
    I'm so used to using this on a w10 machine.

  8. Servers running PowerShell Constrained Language Mode

    In a Guarded Fabric scenario, Hyper-V is running with Code Integrity. This means that PowerShell run in Constrained Language Mode. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.core/about/aboutlanguagemodes)

    DeviceGuardUserModeCodeIntegrityPolicyEnforcementStatus : EnforcementMode

    WAC is not able to manage those Servers / Clusters, is there plan to address this ?

  10. [Services] Implement a "Restart" button for services

    Currently there's only the option to stop or start a Service in WAC. Please add a "Restart" button. A PowerShell Cmdlet exists for this, so this should be no Problem.

  11. [Connection type] Linux support

    With the release of PowerShell 6 not to far away, please provide the ability to connect to anything running PowerShell core. The community can build functionality using the SDK for anything that is required.

    This shouldn't be restricted to domain machines, over LDAP or AD, so workgroup machines should also be supported.

  13. Powershell and RDP SSO for Gateway Mode

    Currently when deploying Windows Admin Center in Gateway Mode, Extension tools such as Powershell and RDP do no support SSO experience(even with RBCD). Manual Authentication is a Must to get access to this Tools. This becomes a Show stopper when using Smart Card Authentication, as password prompt doesn't offer Smartcard login.

    One would expect SSO for all tools however the expected behavior should be a Prompt that supports Smart based based login instead of Password.

    Can this be added as a feature update?
