  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 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.

  7. Would you please upgrade PostageSQL?

    PostageSQL provides some powerful function to process non-relational data (eg: "jsonb") after version 9.4.

    If you mean PostgreSQL, we support 9.4 version in the current 12.5 version – https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/12.5/software-requirements/#s4-2-1 and upcoming Plesk Onyx – https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/17.0/software-requirements/#s4-2-1

    We will officially support next versions if many people will support your request. But I think that you can try to use 9.5 version right now. It should work, but we have not tested it yet.

  8. MySQL change the charset

    Allow to chose another charset when creating a database or do not set one.

    Plesk does use:
    "CREATE DATABASE databasename /*!40101 default charset=utf8 */"
    And with this does overwrite when the MySQL config was changed to use utf8mb4 for example.

    Or allow to choose a charset on creation or create DBs with:
    "CREATE DATABASE databasename"

  9. 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.

  12. Allow the configuration of Database Servers over SSL

    Allow the user to configure Database Servers to connect over SSL, specifying SSL certificate, CA certificate and SSL key. Currently, this has to be done manually via phpMyAdmin config file at /usr/local/psa/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php.

  13. Associate the same database user to multiples databases

    I would like to suggest the possibility to associate the same database user to specific databases of the same subscription.

    As an example:

    Subscription example.com:

    Databases: Example1, example2, example3

    Database users: user1 and user 2

    At the moment user can only be associated via the Plesk panel to an specific database or "any"

    But in case I need/want to associate the user1 to example1 and example2 it's not possible.

  14. Add the ability to encrypt a Database via Plesk interface

    Add the ability to encrypt databases as Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) via Plesk interface, which is supported in MariaDB 10.1 and later.

    At-rest encryption means the data files and logs are encrypted on the disk and makes it almost impossible for someone to access or steal a hard disk and get access to the original data (provided that the key is secured and not stored locally).

  15. Avoidance of special characters in database names when database is created

    Disallowing using special characters (period, minus, backtick) in database names when database is created. This would reduce database errors caused by database names in wrong format.

  17. 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

  18. 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)…
