  5. Does the CDN offer APIs for management?

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

  10. 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.

  11. Reminder for Committed Use Discounts

    To make sure we purchase for another committed use discounts (renewal), would be great to have feature reminder every month or one month before the expiration date of committed use discount.
    the salesperson would be happy, the customer would be more than happy! :)

  13. Partner interconnect, allow to specify custom a IP range for BGP peering

    At present the IP range for BGP peering in a partner interconnect is 169.254.x.x set by Google Cloud. This seems that cannot be customized.These has some problems:

    - I need to do monitoring from the peering device to the VMs in the VPC. This monitoring cannot use the 169.254.x.x address range as source IP that the sockets will use by default.
    - traceroute not working.
    - maybe this list is not exhaustive.

    AWS and Azure do support specify a custom IP range for BGP peering.

  16. 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.

  18. The Single-Node File server won't launch - failed twice in a row ( singlefs-1 failed to deploy). Good idea - poor execution.

    Tried to launch the Single Node File Server 2 times with the same results - "failed to deploy". I hoped this would be a "slam-dunk" ZFS file server launch. After reading through reams of log output - it looks like storage resources failed. I'm not positive, because I don't have time to read through 10K lines of logs to a product I'm not familiar with. Disappointing and a waste of time.

  19. 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
