  1. pgTAP support for application testing

    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.

  3. 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 wallevel needs to be set to logical and there needs to be an available output plugin. Unfortunately, PostgreSQL only comes with the testdecoding plugin, which was only really meant as an example.

    AWS for example, has included wal2json 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 wal2json 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.…

  4. Enable the Pgstattuple Extension

    The extension pgstattuple is best used when you suspect something is amiss with the performance of a query and you suspect bloat.

    The pgstattuple is the most accurate way to determine the bloat in a particular table or index.

    I would like the ability to run the command manually as part of my debugging exercises.

    It is not required that pgstattuple be run as a service because it is intrusive.

  7. 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

  11. Debugging support

    Please add support for debugging. When using pgAdmin and other development tools they refer to the the extention pldbgapi, and would be great if this was installed by default.

  13. Add "pgpointcloud" extension support.

    Request for support for the pgpointcloud extension in Azure PostgreSQL databases.

  18. 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.

    testparser is available on Amazon RDS
    http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonRDS/latest/UserGuide/CHAP
