        • Access database recovery / backup configuration in Azure Portal

          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.

              • Server Parameters: table_open_cache

                I would like to change the parameter of 'table_open_cache' of MySQL.
                Although I changed the SKU, this parameter would not be changed.

                Do you have any plan to change the parameter conforming with SKU?

                  • ARM Template for MySQL

                    I'm looking for documentation on creating an ARM template for the Azure Database for MySQL service. It would be nice to be able to create the templates so we can version control the service along with the rest of our system.

                          There is a default rol for ClearDB and SQL but not yet for the two new database services.

                          Please add them. Thanks!!

                          • Active Geo-Replication (like SQL Database)

                            For enterprise companies, business continuity and disaster recovery are one of the most important features. We cannot stop our services even when the region failure happens.

                              It would be great if we can deploy database(mysql or postgresql) in our own virtual network.

                              • Batch scheduler implementation

                                Currently I use a crontab job on my Azure Linux server to run overnight batch sql processes but obviously not having access to the O/S this is impossible when used as a PaaS, so could you implement a scheduler system to allow running of sql jobs/stored procedures? (Something like SQL Agent in SQL Server would be even more flexible).
