    • Need test_parser extension

      We are using tsvector for full text search.
      And we want to use test_parser extension.

      Although test_parser's doc says "It doesn't do anything especially useful".
      It is actually very useful when using custom tokenizer.

      test_parser is available on Amazon RDS
      http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/CHAP_PostgreSQL.html

      • pgagent extension

        We need to run regular maintenance tasks on our database, which we usually perform with pgagent https://www.pgadmin.org/docs/pgadmin3/1.22/pgagent.html

        Pgagent will be installed as a service on the application server, but for pgagent to work we need the pgagent extension deployed in the application database, see also https://www.pgadmin.org/docs/pgadmin3/1.22/pgagent-install.html#database-setup

            Hi,

            Thank you for your interest in this extension. Our last update mentioned that we expected it to ship this month; unfortunately we weren’t able to make it happen. In the last couple months we’ve worked on bringing our customers highly requested features including extensions like plv8 and dblink. We are continuing to work at making pgaudit available. We will provide an update once we have a more confident date; at this time our estimate is the first quarter of 2019.

            Our apologies for the delay.

            Best,
            Rachel on behalf of the Azure Database for PostgreSQL team.

                            We are working on migrating our app to Azure, and our app has unit/regression tests with using pgTAP [1].

                            I would like Azure PostgreSQL to support pgTAP to allow us for application compatibility test.

                                    • Ability to output data changes via logical decoding (ex. wal2json)

                                      PostgreSQL, since 9.4, has the ability to provide the list of changes made to a database in a manner that is transaction-safe and lossless.

                                      To enable this feature, the wal_level needs to be set to logical and there needs to be an available output plugin. Unfortunately, PostgreSQL only comes with the test_decoding plugin, which was only really meant as an example.

                                      AWS for example, has included wol2json support:

                                      https://aws.amazon.com/about-aws/whats-new/2017/07/amazon-rds-for-postgresql-supports-new-minor-versions-9-6-3-and-9-5-7-and-9-4-12-and-9-3-17/

                                      The simple wol2json output plugin would be a good way to provide access to this powerful feature for a wide audience.

                                      I'd also be fine with other output plugins. It may…

                                        • Native Python and R support - extensions plpythonu, plpython2u, plpython3u
