  1. Allow minimum RAM for an instance to be lower < 0.9GB * numcores

    It would be nice to specify a RAM quantity which is less than the absolute lowest constraint of 0.9GB times the number of cores.

    Right now, the relationships possible are

    1core, 1GB RAM
    2core, 1.8GB RAM
    4core, 3.6GB RAM

    What would be better for my application is

    2core, 1.6GB RAM
    4core, 3.2GB RAM

    Since I don't need the extra RAM and this fits my use case better.

  2. Web SFTP/File Browser for VMs

    We are running some jobs on our machines that generate a number of CSV output files. Best practice is to automate fetching of these files, however on occasion it would be nice to have a quick and dirty approach where we could browse the file system of our machine and download the needed files through the web browser, similar to your great web based SSH client.

  5. Add GPU option to Instance templates

    Instance templates should not restrict the options that already exist in the "Create an instance" page. This includes the option to attach GPUs to a machine type.

    Hi,

    This is available via gcloud and the REST API, but due to some deployment schedule conflicts, has not been rolled out yet in the cloud console (aka web) UI yet. It’s coming very soon, sorry for the inconvenience. In the meantime, if you need to create a template with them, you could try via gcloud.

  6. Signed URLs for CDN which include expiration?

    Can we have this feature where the same content is shown to multiple users based on whether they have subscription or not. We want to include expiration (5-10 mins) and the link then becomes unusable and cannot be shared with others. Similar functionality is available at Similar to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/private-content-signed-urls.html

  7. Add a "notARobot" field to Google Plus OAuth tokens for users who have paid money for Google products

    Bot accounts are a big problem for apps and social media sites. One effective means of combating these is to subject users to captchas, which is not ideal for user experience, and it is sufficiently cumbersome that it is almost never used for frequent actions such as voting. Another method is to use email verification, but this is not terribly effective as the cost of creating an email account for a bot are very low. To be effective, bot detection mechanisms need to be high-cost to circumvent. Fortunately, many people with gmail accounts also have spent money on Google products…

  9. Billing Reporting with reference to bill

    GCP Billing export shows up all costs and credits that will be billed, or were already billed for a specific billing account.

    It would be nice, if I could see which costs were already payed / or shown on a monthly bill, and which will show up on the next bill.

    Right now I can't tell exactly what amount will show up on my monthly bill, by evaluating the billing export data.

    Could there be a reference to a bill, or at least a flag "was_billed" or something else in the billing export data?

    I know, an additional column may…

    Hi Matthew, thanks for filing this. Unfortunately the “defects” sub areas of UserVoice are kind of defunct and we’re hoping to close them, as it’s not really staffed for interactive support. That said, I’ve flagged this post to the GCF PM to take a look at. For future reference, our primary place for bug filing is here:

  16. 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…

  17. ftp_listing not working in PHP GAE

    There is a bug where ftp_nlist() in PHP GAE fails to work sometimes.

    This affects our applications. I have a scheduled task (cron) that will regularly check a remote FTP server for any new events and download the files. Yes, I am using ftp_pasv(). At the very least I'd like to know what's causing this error because the error returned is "unknown".

    The error I keep seeing:
    Warning: ftp_rawlist(): bind() failed: Unknown error 4294967295 (-1) in /base/data/home/apps/s~striped-antler-117423/1.391621080411061890/ftp.php on line 28

    To fix this issue, You guys need to install a patch. Please go through the below link,
