  1. Ability to track number of simultaneous connections to the MySQL

    Sometimes Plesk is not accessible with error:
    DB query failed: "SET sql_mode = ''" Error: SQLSTATE[08004] [1040] Too many connections

    It is possible to inrease the number of connections but it will also be good to have some monitoring of the current number of simultaneous connections to the MySQL, for example in Advanced Monitoring extension.

    It will help to prevent Plesk downtime and set the reasonabl limit for max_connections

  2. Ability to select database schema when creating database users in Plesk for MSSQL

    It is required to import databases created externaly with dbo database schema.

    When such database imported in Plesk it is assigned to schema of the database user created in Plesk. When user created in Plesk, new schema is created for database user. For example, user test1 created in Plesk will have database schema "test1"

    This results to the non-functional Database due to wrong schema (reuqired dbo, while database imported with schema test1).

    The suggestion is to add functionality to select schema when creating database users in Plesk

  7. Allow migrations of accounts between servers that share an external Smartermail server

    As above.

    Currently, it just fails as it tries to create the mail account on the receiving server which already exists on the mail server.

    At the least, you could allow migrations to exclude the entire mail domain and then make an account import tool to bring them into the receiving server.

  9. Restore Backup to alternative domain

    When restoring a Backup of the domain it would be beneficial if you could restore it to a different domain.
    There sometimes is the case that data has to be extracted from an old backup, but the current domain state can't be overwritten.

  11. Database user permission is set according to the database server type

    Migrator should take into account the database server type (remote or local) and change user permissions accordingly. Currently, users that was set on the source with permissions to connect locally to a local database are migrated to the target with the same permissions, despite the fact, that on the target database server is set as a remote. That leads to inability to connect to remote database for that user on the source after migration and migrator change the permission accordingly.

  17. Plesk API: Expiration Date

    Hello,

    There should be an option to read and modify the value of the "Expiration Date" variable on the Plesk subscriptions in the API. That would help a lot.

  18. Improve error reporting by Slave DNS Manager

    When any changes are applied to the DNS Settings and when the Slave DNS Manager extension is installed, it would be helpful to add some notifications from the Slave DNS manager in case any issue with syncing zones occur. For example, if changes can not be applied to the Slave server, provide a warning that the service is not working as expected
