    • 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…

              • Support for tds_fdw

                https://github.com/tds-fdw/tds_fdw

                This is a PostgreSQL foreign data wrapper that can connect to databases that use the Tabular Data Stream (TDS) protocol, such as Sybase databases and Microsoft SQL server.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                      • Close SSL connections gracefully

                        When the client closes a Postgres connection (by sending the "X" command) that uses SSL, a normal Postgres server sends SSL "close_notify" alert, thus closing the connection gracefully (client sees graceful "end of stream").

                        With Azure PostgreSQL, I see just a TCP RST packet, and the client sees an abrutly terminated connection.

                        This causes unnecessary errors with at least some Postgresql client libraries. For example, the current version of Node.js pg / node-postgres library.

                            OGR is the vector half of the GDAL spatial data access library. It allows access to a large number of GIS data formats using a simple C API for data reading and writing.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • allow to login with the real username instead of username@{server_name}

                                        our product running not only in Azure, but also in AWS and on-premises, the PostgreSQL on both of them don’t need to add ‘@{server_name}’ after the real username.

                                          Thank you for using Azure Database for PostgreSQL and sharing your feedback. We understand the request. Unfortunately this isn’t something we can currently support. We hope to look into supporting it in the future, and we will review it in the next calendar year.

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