  1. Ability to scale between different tiers

    Right now, it doesn't seem to be possible to scale from Basic to Standard. Would be good if that was possible.

      Today we support migration between General Purpose and Memory Optimised tiers. We don’t have an automated migration between either of those tiers and the Basic tier.

      Please share in the comments whether you need a migration between Basic and GP/MO, and do add details on why.

      Best,

      • URL encode PostgreSQL connection strings

        The string I got initially was as follows:

        postgres://user@postgre-resource-name:password@host:5432/database

        Because @ sign appears twice, some tools like pg_dump were confused. The issue was solved by URL encoding the first @:

        postgres://user%40postgre-resource-name:password@host:5432/database

          Thanks for using Azure Database for PostgreSQL.

          Where are you requesting that we display this url encoded version? You mention that you got the first string – was this from one of our documents? Do let me know so we can update it. Also, you can directly use the GitHub issues commenting system to request changes to Azure documentation on a document page.

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

        • POWA - PostgreSQL Workload Analyzer (or alternative)

          Support for POWA or another performance analyzer would be nice. https://github.com/dalibo/powa

            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
