  1. Make Google Groups Available for GKE RBAC

    Managing permissions on user-level is a mess. As users and their group relations are already available in GCP it would be natural to have this available for RBAC within GKE.

  2. Ability to add additional external IP addresses via Google Cloud interface to the Compute instance

    Currently, Google VM instance can have only one external IP address.

    It is required in the hosting industry. For example, to add additional dedicated IP for the website.

  3. Deleting VM and SQL instances - 2FA, time limited soft delete

    Appearantly it is really easy to delete for example a VM or database instance. There is no password asked, no big red warning, no 2FA, nothing. I read loads of users that accidentally deleted there VM or SQL instance.

    And, we cannot restore anything after we done it. There is no soft-delete. For example, soft-delete it for like 2 hours, and only then permanently delete. It is now unrecoverable, with just a click of the button.

    Also, since backups are stored on the instance itself in Cloud SQL, you cannot restore the instance or databases unless you have manually made…

  4. Add a Graph Database

    Add a Graph Database - Tinkerpop and W3C/SPARQL compliant as an alternative to: Stardog, Janusgraph, Neptune. Must support sharding and use of cloud storage for backups.

  5. primitive roles

    The large number of pre-defined roles available in GCP is great but can often make finding regular primitive (Owner, Editor, Viewer and Billing Administrator) roles a time consuming process. A nice little QoL improvement to the platform would be separating these roles out from the rest of the fine-grain roles on the roles dropdown. A simple separator in the dropdown would be great.

  7. Introduce a more streamlined UI for Cloud Build post-build operations

    I know that right now Cloud Build is still in Beta but I think that throwing out feedback is always helpful.

    After a build has finished, a new container is created in the container registry.

    The problem is that from there a user has to go completely somewhere else to create a deployment logic.

    In our specific case we're toying with deploying to Instance Groups based on those containers but I'd like to have a wizard-like UI that guide me through the whole process and available options.

    For example:

    1. Set up a trigger from Cloud Build
    2. Wizard: What…

  8. Prepay for use on Google Cloud

    One of the fears everyone has is that we'll start learning on GCP and we'll get a bill for $700,000 at home when a bad line of code spawns up 2million nodes on earth and mars.

    I'd like to buy $500 increments in Google Cloud Credits. Then when i hit that limit, you cut me off. This allows to learn safely.

  9. storage sort by date

    The Storage platform, at least through a browser, doesn't support sorting by columns. I'd love to be able to click on a column header like "Last modified" and sort the output by that column.

  10. Billing detail by instance, disk, etc

    I have a project with 5 instances. In billing report I can see the total project bill or the total bill for instance type, but not for a specific instance, or specific disk, I'm suggesting to have a detailed billing by instance too (like azure).

    A workaround is to have one project for each instance but it is not good for me.

    Regars,
    Gaston

  11. Support setting a hard maximum spend limit per month

    One of the big pain points and fears for startups is that we cannot set a hard spend limit that allows to mitigate the risk of receiving a huge bill at the end of the month if something goes wrong (e.g. service makes unexpected requests, requests from the internet create a lot of load/traffic etc.). Even with the budget alerts we do not feel comfortable that we won't get a large bill because we cannot react fast enough to shut everything down manually.

    Therefore, we want to be able to set the maximum amount we are willing to spend per…

  12. 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.

  13. Does the CDN offer APIs for management?

    We wonder if the CDN can be managed with APIs rather than console shell like gcloud.

  15. Provide an unique way for feature requests

    The current way of providing feature requests is not clear. There is uservoice forum, internal issue tracker(not applicable for us), external issue trackers which is not cared a lot since there is an internal tracker as well, emails, github issues which I provided many times for some projects like firebase.

    This situation is really cumbersome and confusing. Please provide a single place for all requests.

  16. 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
