      Changing status to “Planned” matching Morgan’s comment that it’s “on our radar.”

    • Automatic TLS certificates

      Automatic TLS certificates

      I'd love to be able to have Google automatically protect my domains with HTTPS using Cloud Load Balancing instead of having to manage a multitude of certificates on my own (or write some external process/cronjob to update certificates every so often).

      Something like Let's Encrypt integration or Google issuing off of one of its intermediates would be a fantastic addition to the platform and would enable all to easily offer HTTPS instead of non-secure HTTP for their custom hostnames/domains

      • Allow SMTP to Office 365 (smtp.office365.com)

        Your blocking of standard SMTP ports seems reasonable until you realize that outgoing e-mail can still be sent through G Suite mail servers and not Office 365 mail servers. My domain e-mail that I want to send mail through (low volume) is hosted at Office 365. I'm not going to move it to G Suite just for one little use. I don't see what, if anything, this has to do with IP reputation since smtp.office365.com requires login information. I was excited to use Google Compute Engine until I discovered this annoying fact. Now I'm going to have to use AWS…

            • Cheaper cloud spanner starting price

              It would be great if Cloud Spanner had a cheaper starting price. I listened to Deepti Srivastava on https://www.gcppodcast.com/post/episode-62-cloud-spanner-with-deepti-srivastava/ talk about customer feedback on pricing and how they felt that Cloud Spanner provided incredible value.

              I 100% agree that it provides incredible value, and the performance that you can get from a single node is great and comparable to a MySQL VM that costs the same amount. However my needs are much more modest than 10,000 queries per second or 2,000 writes per second. I'd be quite happy with a node that provided 1/10th of the performance at even 1/4…

                Thanks, we’ve heard this feedback from a number of different directions, and the team is aware of the desire to see something like this. We’ll update this request in the future if there are new offerings to announce.

              • Support Dart

                Support Dart for cloud functions.

                The Dart VM would be perfect for cloud functions.

                • Allow immediate deletion of projects

                  Currently, if you have a workflow that involves rapidly creating and destroying projects, you run into the project creation quota pretty quickly. This *appears* to be linked to the fact that projects have a non-negotiable 30 day grace period. If so, it would be great if one could just opt out of the latter, and kill a project dead immediately.

                  Use cases:

                  1. Choosing to break your setup down into very many small projects for organisational purposes.
                  2. Working on third-party tooling. For example, I have been contributing to the GCP provider for terraform, but have found it impossible to…

                  • Cloud CDN: pricing needs to be more simple

                    please make pricing more simple. most consumers do not have any idea about how to gauge cost based on current model, as they have no way to know how much ingress, egress or fill or the number of http request to expect. the last one is certainly the easiest with GA. or at least some comparison/estimations based on other well known sites and what the cost might be for them.

                      Thanks for your feedback. The current pricing reflects the actual costs of resources you consume. Many website operators do know these metrics quite well, but we’re always looking at how we can simplify things.

                    • Show subtotals by project in monthly invoices

                      Monthly invoices (sent by email) list a project for each line. It would be even nicer if they listed subtotals for each project.

                        • Support Accept-Language in Cloud CDN caching

                          Cloud CDN currently does not support Accept-Language nor Vary: Accept-Language for caching. This kills localization for clients where content may actually be translated depending on the language.

                          Amazon's CDN supports caching on Accept-Language....pretty big for international use cases.

                            Just want to start off by saying this, This should not be top priority but still be added

                            We should have an option to rename things like instances or storage bucket or ips or anything in general.

                              Thanks, there are several specific rename feature requests within the product forums. While we’ll certainly keep the feedback in mind generally, each different product may have different considerations. For example, in GCS a rename would really be a complete copy, which is a fairly expensive operation (and could be very expensive if you src data is in Coldline). This is core to how GCS works. In other products, it might be easier. Feel free to browse the feedback forums here and add your votes to specific rename operations you feel would be most helpful. Thanks!

                              Please add terminal font resizing to Google Cloud Shell. For those with poor eyesight, and/or on high definition displays, the current 13px font size is too small. On a Mac, I'm also used to Menlo which I find has improved legibility.

                                    • Add a parameter/metadata store to KMS

                                      To securely store configuration using GCP tools, one needs to

                                      1. Store them in a file
                                      2. Encrypt that with KMS
                                      3. Store that file in GCS
                                      4. At runtime download that file
                                      5. Decrypt it

                                      It would be great if there was a way to store small secrets directly in KMS so that we don't need to go through the intermediate step of GCS ourselves.

                                      • API for Accessing Daily Budget Information

                                        Forgive me if this is already a feature, but I've not been able to find it.

                                        Our Google Cloud application has several non-essential features that can eat through our daily budget. Ideally we would like to disable these features when we reach a certain percentage of the budget. To do this, an API to get an estimate of our daily budget usage would be great.

                                        The actual number I'm after is the one on the dashboard of the old app engine console where it says "Estimated cost for the last 3 hours $2.00* / $100".

                                        So far, I've not found…
