              • Add a NLG Service

                Add a NLG service - this service should allow for someone to type a natural language query that goes beyond static sql but allows for inference at the query plan and get back a context-specific result either in form of a table output or a report. Point here is to avoid having to use sql to query the database but instead to use english sentence as a means of query.

                      • Provide pictorial representation of all resources and connectivity within a project

                        A user build its project by adding multiple VPC, subnets, compute resource, network services and other VMs across various regions. A dashboard which provides an intuitive pictorial representation of the complete project would be very helpful. It could be similar to representations you use across your documentation pages. For eg:
                        https://cloud.google.com/router/images/vpn-failover.svg

                        The topology may also include below items:
                        #### Ip addresses configured on each resources
                        #### Vpc peering,VPN tunnels, interconnect etc.

                        For larger projects, you may provide both minimal and expandable views.
                        Each vpc/subnet/region/resource on the topology should be a clickable item which would display further attributes associated with it.

                          • 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

                              • Add atomic increment/decrement operations to Spanner

                                (There should be a separate section of this forum for Spanner)

                                I'd like Spanner to offer a simple API for atomically incrementing or decrementing a counter. Currently, we have to read a record, increment and write back. Compared to regular SQL `SET x = x + 1`, or DynamoDB which offers an increment operation, this is much more programmer overhead.

                                Plus, it allows race conditions where multiple writers are incrementing a column, even given Spanner's external strong consistency, if both read the same value before one writes back an incremented amount. This makes it hard to keep denormalised counts accurate…

                                  • 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.

                                    • Manage all organization's networks in a single pane

                                      The organization node is great, but it would be nice to manage all the projects networks in a single pane.

                                      • 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…

                                        • 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.
