    • Here's why we are sticking with Amazon RDS MySQL for now

      We love the idea of keeping all our assets in one cloud, however, when it comes to our db we're gonna have to stick with RDS and here are the main reasons:

      1. Azure won't allow saving slow query log to table in mysql db
      2. Azure only retains 7 days worth of logs
      3. Azure doesn't allow saving these logs to a storage container at all
      4. Can't reboot MySQL server on demand... was told by support to scale up/down which triggers reboot, but that seems like a hacky workaround that could lead to longer downtimes
      5. No ability…

        • enable the slow_query_log to log to the native mysql slow_log table instead of a text file

          By default it seems to be outputting to text files under logs blade of the MySQL server in the portal. Additionally, if there is no way to save to table, can we have it save to an azure storage container instead?

                  • Allow database restore individually

                    It would be great if you could add an option to restore each database in the MySQL server individually and provide a way to shedule database backups (created with mysqldump for example) and save them inside a storage account container.

                      • Allow users to change the default_week_format server parameter in MySQL Database for Azure

                        Currently threre are a few server settings that can be changed through the portal but default_week_format is not one of them. Since this is a globalization setting I find is very important to be able to change that to my local settings.

In particular, innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit, to improve performance and varying workloads.

                                    Access database recovery / backup configuration in Azure Portal similar to configuring a recovery services vault and retention policy for Azure SQL databases.

                                    Currently I cannot find any UI in the portal that would allow me to configure automatic backups.

                                    • DBA permissions in mysql

                                      Tried deploying GLPI (http://glpi-project.org/) using Azure Database for MySQL but failed during Database creation for 'lack of permissions'. Using a ClearDB database it worked inmediately. Checking the servers configuration, ClearDB user had all mysql roles, but Azure Database user didn't have some roles.
