    Thank you for your interest in Azure Database for PostgreSQL.

    Monitoring solutions that don’t have to be added as an extension are possible alternatives. Workable solutions query the server’s statistics through a low-privileged user role. Possible examples are pghero, pgwatch2.

    Please do let us know if POWA specifically is needed and any additional comments.

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

  5. 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.

  7. 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)

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Point in time restore to include HBA and server parameters

    When restoring to a point in time, HBA settings and server parameters such as search_path are not included on the new server. It would be nice for the restore to include this configuration.

  15. Better grouping of server parameters

    Would be great if server parameters were logically grouped together (rather than just being sorted alphabetically). For example, timeout settings together, logging settings together etc.

  16. Lower prices drastically for Azure Managed PostgreSQL

    I have been comparing the cost of managed Postgres on Azure to managed Postgres options on AWS and I'm absolutely floored at how much Azure charges.

    There is no way the current state of things is competitive! For people who have no choice, it seems like Azure is driving them away by deliberately making Postgres cost more than MSSQL.

    To make matters worse, the two only selectable basic tiers are so poor performing that they are totally unusable, taking literally upwards of 2 seconds for the most basic of queries on either the postgres system schema or my own application…

    The value 'pgaudit,timescaledb' for configuration 'sharedpreloadlibraries' is not valid. The allowed values are ', timescaledb'.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
