  1. Ability to shrink storage when restoring

    We would like to shrink the allocated (max) storage when we restore a PaaS to create another environment. This would be especially interesting to create Test environments from Production environments with large unused storage (due to the provisioning of a big IOPS bandwith for performance).

  7. Resource Governace for CPU and Memory

    We are running a multi-tenant system leveraging Azure PostgreSQL.
    During heavy load, one Tenant can impact the system to a point where other databases are effected.

    Wondering if you are planning to support some type of resource governance in the future similar to Azure SQL
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/resource-governor/resource-governor-resource-pool?view=sql-server-2017

    I realize it wont be the same implementation, but maybe a new connectionstring parameter that could be set to limit CPU/Memory could be a start?

  8. Add support for auto_explain to collect access plans of the slow queries

    auto_expalin would help us collect access plans of the queries which exceed a threshold of the query execution time.

  9. Enable shutdown (deallocate equivalent) for Postgres when not in use.

    For non-production environments it would be a helpful cost saving feature to be able to 'turn off' / deallocate Azure Databases (of all types not just postgres) when they are not in use.

    While the prevailing logic would suggest that non-production environments should be destroyed when not in use, this is sometimes not convenient or practical when environments are required on (relatively) short notice and DB content sizes are relatively large

  10. Reader Role can view Query Text


    On AZ PostgeSQL Performance Insight, the role of Reader can view everything but not “query text”,
    so basically like most of things in Azure we believe that Reader role should also be able to
    view query text. And that is the issue and needs to be fixed in future releases.

  11. Ability to restore data from a snapshot

    We have a transient workload that only needs to run once every week at most. However, the DB state needs to be saved at the end of each run. Since the workload only runs occasionally, it costs quite a lot to keep the server running in the meanwhile, even at the minimum size for the tier.

    While it is possible to pg_dump/restore the data, this is very slow compared to restoring from a snapshot, which would be nearly instantaneous. Currently, deleting a server also removes the ability to access backups for the server.

    If one could optionally save a snapshot…

  14. Azure VNet in paired region

    For Azure SQL, service endpoint should allow traffic not only within a virtual network's region but also extend to include the paired region where the virtual network is deployed.

    (Idea submitted by Manish Kumar from the engineering group of Azure Database for PostgreSQL/MySQL service on behalf of one of our customers and in order to elicit feedback from other customers and users).

  15. Rename server

    Gaging interest for being able to rename a server/instance.

    For instance some customers shared that the naming convention they use for servers changes as a server moves from one stage of its lifecycle to another (test -> staging -> prod for instance)

  16. Server-side connection pooling

    Would be great if it was possible to enable server-side connection pooling (e.g. Pgpool-II or PgBouncer) right from the portal.

  17. Provide actual memory being used (in GB) in Azure Monitor

    Provide actual memory being used (in GB) in Azure Monitor in addition to % memory used. The customer scenario is for the Persona of a QA/Test professional. Actual memory used is much more useful than % used as it related to determining the quality of a product / service. % used is tailored to SRE/Ops persona.

  18. BYOK Encryption Key

    For governance reasons for managing PHI, we need to BYOK for the Disk Level Encryption. Is there any plan to expose the ability to have the storage account that the underlining managed system is using to a key that's stored in key vault?

    We can't host our postgresSql Database in Azure's managed solutions, until we can.
