    • 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.

      • In cloud endpoint, you can provide option to trigger cloud function

        in aws api gateway there is an option to trigger lamda function by api gateway endpoint.
        You can provide a similar option in cloud endpoint also

            • logs in .csv

              Hi, I would like to request a feature that allows owners/ writers of the project to download logs generated by cloud-storage-analytics@google.com in either .xls or .csv rather than in octet/stream.

              • 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.

                      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:

                      https://issuetracker.google.com/savedsearches/559729

                      (you can find links to all the issue tracker areas from: https://cloud.google.com/support/docs/issue-trackers)

                    • Improve Cloud VPN to support on premises gateway behind nat

                      Currently it is not possible to connect a Cloud VPN gateway to an on-premises VPN gateway behind a NAT (https://cloud.google.com/vpn/docs/resources/troubleshooting#gateways_behind_nat).
                      This is particularly problematic as changing the network topology or changing the HW cannot simply be done on-premises.
                      I suggest to support this particular setup to avoid to create a VM with strongswan or similar.
                      It's easier to setup, maintain and configure.
                      Thanks!

                      • 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,

                          • 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…

                            • Add domain registration management to google cloud

                              It would be great if domains.google were a core product of Google Cloud Platform.
                              That way we could administer everything in the same place (and only have one bill), plus everything else that would be simpler administration-wise.

                              And in any case, make sure domain registration is available in all markets, which it currently isn't under google.domains.

                                  • 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,…

                                    • 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.
