Do you have an idea or suggestion based on your experience with Azure Database for PostgreSQL?

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 mix and match tools which makes for a bad experience.

I have great hopes for python2 azure mgt tools and the support for python in automation. My collegue would love to see more Powershell.

Thanks for you continuous effort to improve the experience. Even though we see tons of bugs / incomplete feature, we see that things improve and the support is trying to be helpful.
