  1. As a customer, I want to create API Tokens which are not attached to a real user, so that I can enforce the usage of SAML for the whole Organization. Using tokens from a real user usually means that the token has more access than desirable for example monitoring can be done with read-only permissions.

  2. As an Aiven user,
    I want to ease the setup of my multi-region infrastructure by creating a single VPC peering for several regions
    so that I can avoid creating a several peerings when I'm deploying multi-region services.
    This would also solve the VPC quota issue that we can encounter on GCP (25 peerings max per VPC)

  3. As an IT Administrator I want to automate the on and off-boarding of users and manage their lifecycle in Okta.

    SCIM allows an IT Administrator to provision users and groups automatically to Aiven and keeps them in sync with the identity provider.

  4. As a database administrator
    I want to designate a secondary region where service backups will be replicated to (BTAR) and perform a point in time recovery (PITR) within that region
    so that I can ensure data protection and lossless service recovery in the face of region-wide outages

  6. As a CFO / FinOps Leader, I want to easily track our Aiven cloud costs, so that we can provide accurate reporting, allocate costs internally, and to prioritize workload optimization projects based on accurate cost data.

  8. As an API developer I need to understand the error codes and details of the API so that I can integrate and handle errors thrown by the API elegantly.

    The gaps are most notably:
    * HTTP status codes explanation
    * lack of standardized error codes (example: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/API/ErrorResponses.html)
    * very little or no explanation (example: https://api.aiven.io/doc/#tag/Service/operation/ListProjectServiceTypes)

  10. Due to some limitations on the number of peerings supported by some cloud provider, for an organization with numerous applications and many potential projects associated with each, one option around it would be to configure Aiven VPC at Organizational level.

  12. As a software engineer who often does infra stuff, I want to fully configure our Aiven vnet peering on Azure using terraform, so that we don't loose knowledge of how our infrastructure is configured and so that we can always tear it down and re-create it.

    Primarily I'm interested in allow_forwarded_traffic but I think ideally exposing all of the following Azure configurations through the aiven_azure_vpc_peering_connection terraform resource would be ideal.
    allow_virtual_network_access
    allow_forwarded_traffic
    allow_gateway_transit
    use_remote_gateways

  13. This feature will allow customers who purchase Aiven services through a cloud provider (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure) marketplace, to track their ongoing usage and spend via the Aiven console.

  14. As a devops
    I want to receive events from my projects (activity feed)
    so that I can know in real time if a service has been created/deleted/updated/stopped/started on my project
    In addition, I would like to be able to send this event to a kafka topic for example.

  15. As user
    I want to get a URI
    so that I can access my service

    If a service is running in a VPC and public access is allowed, the Connection Information for an Aiven service shows a row labeled "Access Route" with options "Dynamic" and "Public". As a new user, I thought this was for making a configuration setting change, so I was afraid to select Public. I think the use of the term "Dynamic" also threw me off. I didn't see anything in the docs and there's no help text in the UI to inform the user on what…

  16. As an existing Aiven customer
    I want to pay via a marketplace subscription
    so that I can recognise spend against my hyperscaler commitment and simplify my procurement processes
    In addition, this is currently a manual process and involves coordinating steps between the customer, Aiven Sales team, and Aiven Ops team. I would like to self-serve this capability.

    We are working on making the Marketplaces payment methods in the Aiven tenant rather than being separate tenants!

  17. As a customer
    I want to manage RBAC via Terraform (including assigning users as members of groups, and assigning roles to groups for our projects)
    so that I can administer our roles fully in one place without needing to sign in to the portal.
    This is currently blocked due to an issue relating to user invites (see https://github.com/aiven/terraform-provider-aiven/pull/1367#issuecomment-1765722571) - meaning in Terraform we can create users, and create groups, but we cannot assign users as group members (and no resource exists in the Aiven Terraform provider yet to allow us to assign project roles to groups, AFAIK).

  18. As a cloud architect,
    I want to connect my Aiven BYOC VPCs via a VPN to my applications
    so that I can re-use existing automations to manage VPN connectivity.

    VPNs are traditionally used when connecting on-premise workloads to workloads in the public cloud.

  19. As a security conscious enterprise, I want to limit the egress traffic to Aiven from my BYOC environment to a limited range of IP addresses to limit the number of public egress endpoints.

  20. As a Network Engineer, I want to set up multiple PrivateLink connections to Kafka, so that I can privately connect multiple applications, across VPC's, to my Kafka services.
