  1. Need a way to terminate sessions to drop and recreate a database

    I have used the following script to kill connections prior to dropping, creating and loading a database on our in house postgresql instance:

    SELECT pgterminatebackend(pgstatactivity.pid)
    FROM pgstatactivity
    WHERE pgstatactivity.datname = 'TARGET_DB';

    But it requires superuser rights to kill the connections which is something we don't get on Azure.

    I would like some programmatic way to do this in Azure.

  2. Globally Unique/Custom Domain Names

    Procedurally generated uniqueness should be added to Domain Names to ensure that a namespace will remain available across Azure subscriptions. Users should not have to generate a globally unique server name. Something like “<server name>.<some hash>postgres.database.azure.com” where <some hash> is globally unique and provided by Azure.

  3. allow to login with the real username instead of username@{server_name}

    our product running not only in Azure, but also in AWS and on-premises, the PostgreSQL on both of them don’t need to add ‘@{server_name}’ after the real username.

  5. Logical Replication

    I have a pretty large database, over 70GB, and cannot afford to have downtime with a full backup and restore. Please add support for logical replication with pg logical, slony, or another means.

  8. 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

  9. Azure Powershell SDK support for PostgreSQL

    There are great ways to manage the PostgreSQL in Azure via the Azure CLI. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/postgresql/sample-scripts-azure-cli.

    It would be great to get this possibility as well in Powershell

  10. Allow customization of space and IOPS for logs

    To allow for workloads that require verbose logging levels like DEBUG, it would be nice to be able to set (purchase) additional space or IOPS dedicated to storage of logs.

  12. Support stored procedures in Python

    I would like Azure to be the first cloud service to support the Pl/Pythonu extension. There are security risks involved with supporting this extension, so innovation will be needed, but I believe there is a huge machine learning community that would enjoy it if they could run Python code close to their data.

  17. 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.

  18. Configurable autovacuum

    Our database is in use, in reading and writing, 24 hours per day through batch elaborations and online transactional operations. In our scenario, the auto vacuum is dangerous because it can slow down operations in the wrong moment of the day causing low answer times or even unavailability of our web application.

    For this reason, we decided to turn off the auto vacuum and manage manually the maintenance routine of our tables: we use pgagent to schedule daily vacuum analyze of our tables and manually run vacuum full on large tables when needed (eg. their size on disk is too…

  19. Ability to scale between different tiers

    Right now, it doesn't seem to be possible to scale from Basic to Standard. Would be good if that was possible.
