    Hi,actually version of the TSDB extension is 1.1 and no chance to upgrade to 1.3. How to move further?

    Been a month now - is it progressing as expected? E.g. available in 2-4 weeks after today?

    We're about to manually deploy this but I'll wait if its going to be available in a month or less.

    @Nik, for real this time right? Forgive me, but we'e heard this before, and then had the date again go into "unknown" state! If true, would be fantastic.

    Looking for timescaledb as well. It looks like it has been in the works for a while - is this a case of deprioritization or is there a technical issue being tackled?

    Hello there. Any updates on the addition of Timescale DB to Azure Database for PostgreSQL?

  • AdminAzure Database for PostgreSQL Product Team (Product Owner, Microsoft Azure) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Thank you for your interest in our service! We have been adjusting our planning process since our service became generally available (GA) back in March. We can speak with high confidence about features/deliverables that are coming very soon. For others priorities may, and likely will, be changed multiple times as our backlog is very dynamic (with all benefits and disadvantages of it). For those other deliverables we don't have ETA and as of now Timescale is one of them. So as much as we'd love to deliver Timescale and many other items in the next 4-8 weeks, we won't be able to do it.
    Going forward we'd like to improve our process to be able to provide (confidently!) some time frame for some selected long term items that are priority for our customers. We are yet to reach the point when we can do it.

    Thank you for your understanding and patience,
    Nik on behalf of Azure Database for PostgreSQL team

    Looking for an update. The previous admins said this would be done in February 18, then in April (5-7 weeks after March 4th, 2018).

    Is there a reasons why this has been delayed or demoted to a feature that has no timeframe?

    Is the extension now available? It's now March of 2018, and the previous admin mentioned that it would be available by February.
