  2. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to be able to lower the previously increased, safeguarded PostgreSQL settings,

  3. 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…

  4. Allowing WAL compression could be beneficial for several reasons: reduction of disk space usage, IO efficiency, faster replication, generally improving performance.

  5. As Database Administrator or Engineer,
    I want to be able to edit the PgBouncer maxpreparedstatements configuration parameter, as it has a direct impact in the latency of the consumers of the database through the pool.

    Also, the default setting of 100 max prepared statements that Aiven has in the system is incorrect and will cause issues with ORM users when they upgrade the pgbouncer version in Aiven.

  6. Aiven end customers and their security teams are asking for support for more modern authentication methods, mainly scram-sha256. Scram has been supported by Postgres since version 10. Introducing the support in Aiven platform would allow customers to enchance their database security.

  8. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to see PgBouncer logging.
    At minimal I should be able to see connection pool creation/deletion/changes and all outbound clients connected to which pool with source IPs.
    1. pgbouncer logs should be available by "avn service logs" and aiven console.
    2. pgbouncer logs should be available with rsyslog integration to 3rd parties.
    3. ideally logging level can be controlled by pg service config parameter pg.logerrorverbosity
    bonus: pgbouncer stats ingested into logging.

  10. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to access the service upgrade logs after a failed and reverted upgrade,

  12. As a security administrator or developer, I would like to utilize Row-Level Security (RLS) in PostgreSQL so that I can control data access at a granular level based on specific conditions, ensuring that users only see and modify the data they are authorized to access. Additionally, I want the ability to assign the BYPASSRLS attribute to trusted roles or users when necessary, allowing them to have unrestricted access to data while still maintaining overall security.

  13. 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…

  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

  19. As developer or DBA
    I want to be able to reproduce the behavior of Oracle Autonomous Transaction inside Postgres.
    so that I can create a different transaction that is not impacting the current one. Use case can be logging for example),
    In addition, this can be achieved using DBLinks but it requires to put the password inside a plSQL function. To avoid that, Aiven could have a new parameter allowing local connections without password.
