Azure Database for PostgreSQL

We would love to hear it! Please take a few minutes to submit your idea or vote up an idea submitted by another Azure Database for PostgreSQL customer. All of the feedback you share in these forums will be monitored and reviewed by the Azure Database for PostgreSQL engineering team. By suggesting or voting for ideas here, you will also be one of the first to know when we begin work on your feature requests and when we release the feature.
Remember that this site is only for feature suggestions and ideas! If you have technical questions please try our documentation, MSDN forum or StackOverflow.

  1. Ability to use loopback IP in dblink as hostaddr

    In AWS when using dblink, you can use loopback IP 127.0.0.1 as hostaddr when you are using cross database queries. When we migrate from AWS PostgreSQL to Azure Database PostgreSQL, we need to point the hostname to either the instance IP or server name. Hopefully this will be a new feature so that we can do the migration without changing the our codes every time we migrate to another server. For more details, here's the case ID 120031124003015.

  2. Set the AD admin with API

    To be able to script the creation of a PostgreSQL Database, it could be great if it was possible to set the Azure AD admin with an API or Az CLI.

    Thanks,

  3. zombodb

    ZomboDB extends PostgreSQL capabilities for FTS as it works pretty nicely with Elasticsearch. It works as a native PosgreSQL extension and its support PostgreSQL versions 10.x and 11.x.

    Not having it as an extensions is one of the main reasons why we don't migrate from having databases in VMs to Azure Database for PostgreSQL.

  4. PGSQL 12 Availability?

    It would be nice if PGSQL 12 (including on-by-default JIT extensions) were available as an option.

  8. Monitor slow and long running queries on read replica

    Would be helpful to monitor and pull statistics for queries executed on replica in Query Performance Insights. Currently its not allowed for replica's as the query data store in Azure_sys Database is also replicated from master.

  10. PG_HBA: Sync rules from master to read replica to allow proper service failover

    As described in this issue (I won't rewrite the whole request again): https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/35906

    Azure's postgres PaaS is broken for the enterprise without this feature. I consider lack of this option a defect, not a feature request but am logging it here as directed.

  11. periods extension

    The SQL 2016 standard defines a native way of handling system-versioned temporal tables. The periods extension provides this functionality for PostgreSQL versions 9.5 - 12.0, until native support is added.

    https://github.com/xocolatl/periods

    There is a Debian package available which can be installed:

    "sudo apt install postgresql-11-periods"

    The extension can then be enabled using regular CREATE EXTENSION syntax.

    I would love to see this added to Azure. There is clearly demand for this functionality; the thread below suggests adding support for the temporal_tables extension and has 24 upvotes. However, that extension is now outdated compared to the much shinier periods extension.

  12. Support upgrading major versions via Replication

    Upgrading Data via Replication is documented as a method in the PostgreSQL docs.

    When creating a read replica in the Azure Portal it is not possible to change the version (I assume it uses the same version as the master).

    Please allow selecting a version when creating a replica so that this upgrade method would be possible.

  13. Ability to set max_locks_per_transaction

    As a SaaS provider using postgresql schemas to separate clients we have a lot of tables, one set per customer schema. Some operations such as pg_dump, or schema migrations, takes locks on a lot of tables at once in the database, prior to dumping, or updating the database. For us this means that the default setting of 64 is too low and we'd like to be able to set the value ourself using parameters.

  17. Allow admin user to be able to execute ALTER TABLE “my_table” DISABLE TRIGGER ALL

    Can the 'azurepgadmin' role be enhanced so that

    ERROR: permission denied: "my-trigger-name" is a system trigger

    is not encountered when executing

    ALTER TABLE “my_table” DISABLE TRIGGER ALL

    . The system trigger in question is one associated with a foreign key and the assocated triggers are system triggers.

  19. Support creating VNET Service endpoint in Azure Red Hat OpenShift

    Even though Azure DB for PostgreSQL provides secure connection, Applications on ARO needs to access Azure DB for PostgreSQL via internet.

    Currently, VNET for ARO doesn't allow any modification, therefore, there is no option avoiding going through internet when applications connect to Azure DB for PostgreSQL.

    There is no point in deploying a DB container on ARO. The user needs to consider how to manage DB.

    If ARO allows modifying VNET creating Service endpoint for Azure DB for PostgreSQL, it could provide more secure route and low latency connections as well.

  20. Make PostgreSQL on Azure support usable speeds and not be slow af.

    PostgreSQL on Azure is very outdated and extremely slow. It's very much unusable like this and we ended up moving to our own PostgreSQL container that don't have these issue. Please clarify that
