  2. Allow @% in MySQL username

    For external databases, I can connect to my server, but when I need to add a new user my SaaS database provider from Azure requires the username have an @%. Because of that the connection string in Plesk never works and fails every deployment of any CMS.

  4. Allow Plesk to use a clustered MySQL Server (Galera)

    According to a ticket I just opened (80693) Plesk currently doesn't support a clustered MySQL server, e.g. an active/active Galera cluster.
    To avoid data-loss or corruption in a server crash, I'd like to run MySQL in a Galera cluster to automatically sync the data again once Plesk's MySQL started after a crash.

  5. MySQL database quota

    When mysql database size reaches it's quota e.g. 1GB insert,update permissions are removed for that databases users. permissions are restored when database is within quota.

    in short it should stop the ability of the database growing in size but not stop basic functions like reading existing data...

    this would be fine to run on the quota check cron or somethng.

  8. Manage notification during database copy

    Currently, when the database is copied the notification is sent to subscription owner.
    It would be good to add functionality to disable such notifications or change the recipient mail address.

  9. install sql server reporting services with SQL server on shared hosting. Would be a valuable & useful feature for your product & consumers.

    Availability of reporting services on SQL server would be very useful on shared web hosting. My new ISP says Plesk doesn't support reporting services. I think it would be great if you did - not every site is a blog or simple brochure style. Any small scale business site still requires reporting, and SSRS is a natural fit for ASP.Net hosting.

  11. Restore PostgreSQL databases that has some objects owned by postgres user from Plesk Backup

    It would be great to have an ability to restore PostgreSQL databases that has some objects owned by postgres user from Plesk Backup. As of now, backup is created without any errors, however it is not possible to restore the database because restoration is done not in behalf of postgres user.

    Or at least have a warning when backup is created that I have to restore the database as a postgres user from the command line and do not rely on backup of the database created via backup manager.

  12. PostgreSQL integration and tuning

    Please do better integration of PostgreSQL into Plesk like CPU and memory usage in Health Monitoring and Dump button in Database page. Please also add PostgreSQL tuning into Plesk, especially for modern hardware with 32 or 64 GB memory and 4 to 8 cores and fast SSD or NVMe drives. Thanks!

  13. Add option to use subscription username as a database prefix (ex. mydomain_wordpress)

    We can use customer username as a database prefix, however customer username is not descriptive enough comparing to subscription username.

    Please add option to use subscription username as a database prefix.

  14. Add support for MySQL Governor for CloudLinux

    Currently Plesk does not support MySQL Governor feature https://docs.cloudlinux.com/index.html?mysql_governor.html
    and mapping file /etc/container/dbuser-map has to be updated manually

    Plesk already has integration with CageFS and LVM and detects it once those features installed on the server. It would be great if support for MySQL Governor be implemented in future.

  15. Forced instance prefix for database

    I'd like to have the ability to force a database-prefix of up to five characters for the plesk instance (alternative for a specific ext. databaseServer) for both databases and databaseUsers.

    I use a MariaDB-cluster for my customers and there are multiple reasons I like to see such a feature:
    - For security reasons: I don't like that the internal plesk-admin user has access to all databases - even if they do not belong to the instance domain's / customers. If the server would be hacked and somehow the mysql-admin-password extracted all my customers would be affected. With a prefix (e.g.…

  16. Add Microsoft SQL Server PHP extensions to Plesk Linux

    They can be disabled by default (and optionally be enabled in PHP Settings, 7.0-7.1 only). The drivers appear to be quite stable - I have successfully installed them in Plesk on Ubuntu 16.04 and CentOS 7.4.

    This is especially interesting since SQL Server 2017 is available for Linux and Docker.

    Once the extensions are installed/enabled, the follow-up request would be to allow me to add remote MS SQL databases in Plesk Linux (not limited to RDS - any remote MS SQL instance).

  17. Configuring the Default Remote Access Policy for MS SQL and PostgreSQL via UI

    Right now, it is possible to manage Access Policy only for MySQL Database Servers only: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/database-servers/database-hosting-preferences.72875/

    It would be good to manage Remote Access Policy for MS SQL and PostgreSQL via Plesk UI too.

  20. Create .7Z dumps of databases

    Within Plesk it is possible to create a dump of a (SQL Server) database. Plesk then seems to use 7Zip to create a .ZIP file. It would be nice if it was possible to choose between the .ZIP or the .7Z file format as .ZIP is more compatible, but 7Z compresses such database dumps up to 10 times better.
    And of course you would need to be able to import 7Zipped dumps also.
