  1. Show Pub-Sub messages on google console.

    Currently it shows Topics and Subscriptions but not the actual messages.

  2. 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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  6. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. The customer wants to know the usage and charging for every machine type not individual vCPU and memories.

    Since October 1st 2018, most machine types are billed as individual vCPU and memory SKUs. The n1-standard, n1-highmem, and n1-highcpu machine types are billed by the individual vCPU and memory usage in two separate SKUs rather than billing by each machine type.
    We start to receive a lot of complaints from our customers. Would you please change back to bill by machine types?

  13. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. 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)

  20. Cloud Shell I-Beam Cursor

    Block cursor is hard to work with. Especially when using magnifying on browsers (for example 125%). Please give us option of I-Beam type cursor if it is not hard to implement.
