  1. pgTAP support for application testing

    We are working on migrating our app to Azure, and our app has unit/regression tests with using pgTAP [1].

    I would like Azure PostgreSQL to support pgTAP to allow us for application compatibility test.

  3. 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.

  4. 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/).

  5. 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.

  6. Add DNS management to firewall rules configuration

    Usually pg_hba.conf accepts DNS names so you can use i.e. my.address.ip for ***.***.***.***. In Azure portal you can input only numeric IP addresses but this presumes you have staic public IP address. Allowing DNS management you would be able to use Dynamic DNS solving non static public IP address problem.

  7. Provide a list of available sku-name values by region

    The quickstarts and walkthroughs make reference to the sku-name parameter in the az postgres server create command, but there doesn't seem to be any documentation about how the name is constructed and whether every sku is available in every region. It might be good to have "get-sku-names" cmdlet (or whatever the cli equivalent is) that would return all available skus, possibly with an optional region argument.

    At least, the documentation should say "The sku-name parameter consists of 3 parts: Tier (B for Basic, GP for General Purpose, MO for Memory Optimized), Compute (Gen4 or Gen5), and Scale (1-32 vCores) -for…

    Thank you for your feedback

    We have updated the documentation on the quickstarts and the tutorials to include examples of the syntax, and a reference to the regions and pricing tier page for guidance about allowed combinations.

    See this section: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/postgresql/quickstart-create-server-database-azure-cli#create-an-azure-database-for-postgresql-server

    The additional feature request of having a cmdlet generate valid values is currently unplanned.

    Thanks,
    Rachel on behalf of the Azure Database for PostgreSQL.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Enable the ability to assign BYPASSRLS to PostgreSQL Roles

    It would be great to have the ability to assign BYPASSRLS to spefic users in the system so we could have a backup user who had access to all data data and could run pg_dump without errors and then all other users had row level security enabled to enforce the data people could see.

    This would provide an extra level of secuirty to the application as then even table owners would not be able to access all data where at present row level security is only enabled for standard users.

  16. 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.

  19. 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.
