  1. Add option for natural sort in tables (or make it default)

    Sometimes we started with instances like

    node-1
    node-2

    and so on. Today, due to scaling, we have a lot of node-10, node-11 instances.

    The problem here is the order of the data, as there's no option for natural sort. The instances appear like this in the overview:

    node-1
    node-10
    node-11
    node-2
    node-3

    That's unmanageble at some point. We're still waiting for the "rename instances" feature, that also could help with this problem. But I guess the sort order will be a less painful task for the GCP engineers.

  2. 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,

  4. 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…

  6. Add labels to Committed Use Discounts so I can leverage the cost-center label in my reporting.

    I use a `cost-center` and `env` label to slice up costs and allocate them appropriately. Unfortunately after adding Committed Use Discounts, my calculations are off. Would like to be able to have labels for all resources / SKU's that can generate charges.

  7. Cloud CDN should have the option to give back a generic URL instead of needing a Load Balancer that requires us to configure an IP

    Right now Cloud CDN requires the configuration of a Load Balancer, which costs $18 a month. Furthermore, I am given a global IP that I then need to setup on my own subdomain.

    What I want is just a way to put a CDN in front of my bucket. I don't mind using a generic url name such as obfuscatedbucketname.googleapis.com/path/to/my/object

  11. Allow configurable time for shutdown script

    According to https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/shutdownscript#time_period the shutdown script has a limited time period to run, and running it on a best effort basis. This causes issues when we want to ensure that a shutdown script runs, and completes its cleanup task. An example would be flushing in-memory cached data to a backend store, failing which would lead to a corrupted datastore. We have actually faced this in production. If there are other options available please let me know.

    Also, changing the behaviour of the software (flush more often) is not possible in our case.

  12. UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE support for Spanner

    Community support already exists in the form of a JDBC driver for translating UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements to spanner read-write transactions. However, that doesn't help for those of us writing in Go or NodeJS.

    First-class support for UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements on the server level would make spanner much easier to program against, and allow the use of more tooling and libraries which can help generate these kinds of statements.

    In addition, support for RETURNING would make client programming of partial updates more easy, instead of requiring that we read, write, apply partial diff to the read object,…
