  1. 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.

  2. pg_squeeze is an extension that removes unused space from a table and optionally sorts tuples according to particular index

    https://github.com/cybertec-postgresql/pg_squeeze
    pg_squeeze is an extension that removes unused space from a table and
    optionally sorts tuples according to particular index (as if CLUSTER [2]
    command was executed concurrently with regular reads / writes). In fact we try
    to replace pg_repack [1] extension.

  4. 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).

  6. 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)

  7. Citus columnar datastore

    Azure team edit: I' creating this new idea on behalf of a customer to separate it from the votes for Citus on Azure Database for PostgreSQL. If you're interested in Citus columnar datastore (link below), please vote for this idea.
    ++++

    I need this to do big-ish data things:

    https://www.citusdata.com/blog/2014/04/03/columnar-store-for-analytics/

    I am a huge fan of postgresql for data warehousing, and this is a key thing for having the ability to summary large tables quickly.

  8. Native Python and R support - extensions plpythonu, plpython2u, plpython3u

    Please support extensions plpythonu, plpython2u, plpython3u so functions etc. can have Python code.

    Similar request for R support with extensions like PL/R

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Ability to use PG FDW to access one PG server from another w/o opening the firewall to all of Azure

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. Correct count of Postgres connections in Portal

    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

  20. 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…
