  1. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to integrate PostgreSQL with Oracle databases using the oracle_fdw extension so that I can seamlessly access data in Oracle databases from within PostgreSQL using standard SQL queries. This feature simplifies data integration and allows for efficient cross-database operations without the need for complex data migration processes.

  2. As a dba
    I want to add the PGOUTPUT extension
    so that we can use this type of logical replication
    In addition, it is important as our system integration requires it to work, and it is generally better performing over test_decoding

  3. As a Software Engineer or DBA, I want to be able to enforce schemas on JSON/JSONB fields in a convenient manner, so that I can ensure bad data doesn't getting written to my database. https://github.com/supabase/pg_jsonschema seems to be the most popular extension for doing this.

  5. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to be able to set the database client connection port within the allowed public ports range,
    So that I would be able to set the same port for all of my services which will allow me to have unified persistent rule on my firewall for my databases, facilitating smooth database operation within the firewall parameters. Altering firewall configurations can prove arduous.

  6. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to integrate Kerberos authentication with PostgreSQL,
    So that user management becomes centralized through existing Kerberos services like ActiveDirectory, enhancing security, simplifying authentication, and eliminating the need for separate authentication methods.

  9. As a devops
    I want to have the service startup time in the GET service endpoint
    so that I can know I a service has been UP or STOPPED since more than 7 days for example. For now I have to fetch the activity logs of the project, then look up for the service, then look for the right event (if the status of the service is UP then I'm looking for the "servicepoweron" event else the "servicepoweroff") but sometimes the service is UP for more than 1 year so I can't find the startup date of the…

  10. As backend and DevOps engineer / SRM, I want to be able to visualize in Grafana metrics related to WAL files buildup due to lagging or missing replication slots.
    This will help us debug WAL bloat which might exhaust the disk space and better understand the cause.

    Mainly the metric filecount_size_bytes will be useful. Also any metric that would allow us to monitor per database service:
    1. Total WAL size.
    2. Size of WAL retained due to replication lag.
    3. Rate in which we consume the WAL for the replication over time (connector consumption rate).
    4. Rate in which we…

  11. A fast way to optimize my PostgreSQL & MySQL queries automatically.

    As a software engineer, I would like to submit my query and receive a newly rewritten version of the query, optimized to run 10 times faster. These optimizations could potentially save my team an average of 50 weekly hours, which are currently spent manually optimizing these queries.
    I would like to perform these optimizations directly from Aiven's console, even if my Database is not hosted on Aiven yet.

    Additionally, It is critical that the optimization process be 100% non-intrusive and not require access to my databases' sensitive data.

  12. A fast way to Identify PostgreSQL & MySQL performance issues.

    As a DevOps/DBA, I would like to get proactive alerts so that my customers will not encounter performance issues and I will be able to identify and fix them quickly without calling a database specialist.

  13. A fast way to optimize my PostgreSQL & MySQL databases automatically.

    As a software engineer/DevOps, I would like to see my slowest queries and receive recommendations along with a newly rewritten version of the query, optimized to run 10 times faster.

  14. As a DBA or developer,
    I want to be able to stop/start my services without losing replication slots
    so that I can resume my logical replication flows even after a power cycle.

    Similar recreation is currently done during nodes failover: https://aiven.io/blog/aiven-for-pg-recreates-logical-replication-slots
