      • Allow Event Triggers to be created

        I am working with multiple users on shared tables. As the users belong to a dedicated role "pgpublish" I am in the need to run "ALTER TABLE "MYcoolSchema"."CoolNewTable" OWNER TO pgpublish;" on every new table which we create manually.
        As I want to have any new table owned by the role pgpublish instead of the user role I want to to create a trigger function and a trigger event to change table owner automatically (as described here: https://blog.hagander.net/setting-owner-at-create-table-237/). Unfortunately I can't create trigger events as I am not a superuser nor do I have the credentials for a SU…

        • effective_cache_size

          You should allow tuning of memory-related parameters. I have a 15GB server and the effective_cache_size is 1536MB; it should be eight times as high. Without tuning these parameters my application is simply too slow to run on your environment.

              • 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.

                  • 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.

                      I'd like a way to use Postgres foreign data wrapper (FDW) which is supported today to access one Azure DB for Postgres server from another, without opening the firewall on the first server to all of Azure.

                        • Transactional DB with Analytics

                          AWS announced an analytics extension to Aurora for MySQL with postgreSQL to follow:
                          https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-parallel-query-for-amazon-aurora/

                          " ...you can run a mix of analytical and transactional queries simultaneously on the same table while maintaining high throughput for both types of queries. "

                          This would be a tremendous feature that my company could exploit at large scale.

                          • 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

                              We use the Azure postgres database and shows the connection count in our monitoring setup. We just realized that the connection count shown in the Azure Portal is not the same as Postgres repots. We had over 170 connections at one time, while the Portal showed approx. 20 connections

                              • Better support for automation of installation in ARM Template / PowerShell

                                We massively deploy PostgreSQL instances. We (for exemple) need to automatically deploy configuration (for instances log_* parameters). It's possible to modify configuration with AZ commands. The other automation tools don't have the required functionality:

                                * ARM Template cannot deploy instances with a set configuration.

                                * Python2 should provide the necessary tools via azure.mgmt.* but is not very well documented (it's still in preview)

                                * PowerShell as no options for that. (and very few means to interact with Postgres in general).

                                In general, the support for postgres is bad in automation tools (and the feature coverage not uniform). We have to…

                                    • Firewall option: Allow access from a specific Azure resource

                                      While the option to allow access to all Azure services is nice, I'd much rather be able to control what resources can reach my server on a more granular level.

                                      The vnet integration is excellent, but many Azure resources (I'm thinking specifically of Data Factory at the moment) aren't integrated with vnets, for various reasons.

                                        • Post PostgreSQL Version Updates

                                          Could Azure announce beforehand when version updates will be applied to Azure Database for PostgreSQL? For instance, updates are posted when PHP gets updated (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/june-2018-version-updates-to-php/).
