  1. Ability to restore to same database name

    Ability to run a point in time restore to same database name rather than restoring to a new instance.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. ip4r extension

    It would be great to have the ip4r extension available in the Azure Database for PostgreSQL service. We already use this extension in our self-managed psql service to use IP addresses as native objects. It is very useful for some IPAM engines like nipapd, etc.

    For more information about this extension: https://github.com/RhodiumToad/ip4r

  7. Support for Custom Full Text Search Dictionaries

    PostgreSQL supports so many great full text search capabilities that can be really handy in small to mid sized applications without adding the extra overhead of separate search services.

    https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/textsearch-dictionaries.html

    When self-hosting PG you can add custom dictionaries, with custom synonym, thesaurus, stop word, and other stemming definitions. Currently Azure hosted PostgreSQL doesn't support this, as you'd need access to upload language and dictionary files to use in those definitions. For example, if you want a solid spellchecker via ispell or hunspell you can download those extensions and place them in the $SHAREDIR/tsearch_data directory on the PG server.

  10. Resource Governace for CPU and Memory

    We are running a multi-tenant system leveraging Azure PostgreSQL.
    During heavy load, one Tenant can impact the system to a point where other databases are effected.

    Wondering if you are planning to support some type of resource governance in the future similar to Azure SQL
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/resource-governor/resource-governor-resource-pool?view=sql-server-2017

    I realize it wont be the same implementation, but maybe a new connectionstring parameter that could be set to limit CPU/Memory could be a start?

  11. Reader Role can view Query Text


    On AZ PostgeSQL Performance Insight, the role of Reader can view everything but not “query text”,
    so basically like most of things in Azure we believe that Reader role should also be able to
    view query text. And that is the issue and needs to be fixed in future releases.

  12. Azure VNet in paired region

    For Azure SQL, service endpoint should allow traffic not only within a virtual network's region but also extend to include the paired region where the virtual network is deployed.

    (Idea submitted by Manish Kumar from the engineering group of Azure Database for PostgreSQL/MySQL service on behalf of one of our customers and in order to elicit feedback from other customers and users).

  13. 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)

  15. effective_cache_size

    You should allow tuning of memory-related parameters. I have a 15GB server and the effective_cache_size is 1536MB; it should be eight times as high. Without tuning these parameters my application is simply too slow to run on your environment.

  17. Enable the Pgstattuple Extension

    The extension pgstattuple is best used when you suspect something is amiss with the performance of a query and you suspect bloat.

    The pgstattuple is the most accurate way to determine the bloat in a particular table or index.

    I would like the ability to run the command manually as part of my debugging exercises.

    It is not required that pgstattuple be run as a service because it is intrusive.

  18. Ability to use PG FDW to access one PG server from another w/o opening the firewall to all of Azure

    I'd like a way to use Postgres foreign data wrapper (FDW) which is supported today to access one Azure DB for Postgres server from another, without opening the firewall on the first server to all of Azure.

  19. Transactional DB with Analytics

    AWS announced an analytics extension to Aurora for MySQL with postgreSQL to follow:
    https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-parallel-query-for-amazon-aurora/

    " ...you can run a mix of analytical and transactional queries simultaneously on the same table while maintaining high throughput for both types of queries. "

    This would be a tremendous feature that my company could exploit at large scale.

  20. Post PostgreSQL Version Updates

    Could Azure announce beforehand when version updates will be applied to Azure Database for PostgreSQL? For instance, updates are posted when PHP gets updated (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/june-2018-version-updates-to-php/).
