  1. Add TRIGGER privilege management for database users

    Some of our customers are asking for a way to define triggers on their MySQL/MariaDB databases. Plesk does not grant the TRIGGER privilege on database users it creates.

    Modifying the GRANTs for those users created by Plesk is not a viable workaround, because the permissions get reset if the user is later modified at all via Plesk.

    The only known workaround is to create and manage a separate database user outside of Plesk, which is obviously contrary to the purpose of having Plesk on a server in the first place.

    Please consider adding TRIGGER privilege management to Plesk, or else…

  2. Ability to clone databases with definers

    On the attempt to clone database with DEFINER Plesk failed if there is no the same user on destination database.

    Currently, it is required either manually remove definer from database dump or add super priveleges: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360005033014-Unable-to-import-MySQL-dump-using-Import-Dump-feature-in-Plesk-ERROR-1227-42000-at-line-1421-Access-denied-you-need-at-least-one-of-the-SUPER-privilege-s-for-this-operation

    Since Mysql version 5.7.8 it is possible to use the --skip-definer option with mysqldump:
    https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysqlpump.html

    The suggestion is to add ability to clone database skipping definers as option in Plesk GUI

  3. Better Database Server Assignment / Visibility

    Currently you only have the option to do nothing and "SHOW ALL" database servers or restrict to a single database server per subscription by using the permissions tab. This means each user that falls under this criteria need a custom service plan.

    We would like to display more than a single database server for clients that choose to pay extra for an additional database server that only they can use. Some projects grow and they need an additional database server - or in some cases they need to migrate data between the old database server (sometimes local to plesk server)…

  4. More database management alternatives

    Due to existing vulnerabilities like https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360013996240-CVE-2020-13166-myLittleAdmin-vulnerability it would be nice to have more than one alternatives solutions for managing MSSQL and MySQL databases.

  6. Table for databases

    A table in the Databases section where you can enter all values like memory and upload amount. So you could optimize the allocation of the working memory better. But also see what values each web page or database has.

  10. Include pgadmin for Postgres management in Plesk

    phpPgAdmin support was dropped starting from Plesk Onyx 17.8
    This means that Plesk does not have any management tool for Postgres databases shipped with it.

    I suggest to include pgadmin in Plesk installation since the latest ve
    rsion of this software (2018-09-06 - pgAdmin 4 v3.3 Released) has just been released, with adequate security. More info about it you can find here:

  11. Mass import database dump

    There are scenarios where multiple databases for multiple domains have to be restored.

    In such cases, it would be great to be able to mass import dumps from database backup files instead of going one by one manually importing them on a domain basis

  12. Add new database formats to ODBC Data Sources menu

    Add .accdb and newer Excel versions to ODBC DSN. Currently, only .mdb and .xls up to Excel 8.0 are available (beside MySQL). Newer versions of database file formats should be supported by this feature.

  13. MSSQL hostname change for an existing MSSQL database server

    When a MSSQL database server is upgraded to a new version, the name can not be changed from within Plesk and it needs to be done manually into the Plesk database once the name is set on MSSQL side.

  16. Make utf8mb4 default when backing up mysql databases

    When i backup database with Plesk (either with Export/Import feature or with Backup Manager), it loses all characters outside Unicode BMP (all characters > 0xFFFF).
    It's because mysqldump default charset is utf8, not utf8mb4.

    This should be changed, for example, if database contains at least one field with utf8mb4 charset - mysqldump should be run with --default-character-set=utf8mb4 option.

    Settings in /etc/mysql/conf.d/mysqldump.cnf are not respected too, it works when i use mysqldump from command-line, but doesn't work when i export or backup db with plesk.

    MySQL dump 10.13 Distrib 5.7.25, for Linux (x86_64)
    MySQL Server version 5.7.25-0ubuntu0.16.04.2

  17. Incorporate the default collation setting as a feature in the "Tools & Settings: Database Servers: Database Hosting Settings" section.

    It should be a simple matter to incorporate the default collation as a feature in the "Tools & Settings: Database Servers: Database Hosting Settings" section. This also needs to be available as an option when a WordPress site is set up within Plesk.

  18. Add an option to use a custom url to access MyLittleAdmin

    It's not always feasible to add the mssql.<domain.tld> DNS entry for the websites hosted in Plesk.

    Adding an option to configure a custom url/dns name to access the MyLittleAdmin tool with would be preferrable.

    And make sure that "MyLittleAdmin" button under Databases would take the user to the global url if it's set.
