  1. Add option to retrieve host fingerprint for SSH and RDP in console

    Similarly to what is currently available on AWS EC2 (though it is in a log), it would be very useful to have an option in the console to display host key fingerprints for both SSH and RDP.

    This seems like a serious oversight given its importance in establishing host integrity over the open Internet.

    The firewall rule defaults of open RDP and SSH also seem a bit ludicrous, but I'll leave than for another post.

  2. Support adding container options and disable stackdriver logging when deploy container in VM

    There is no way to add docker options when deployed a container image to VM. It is very useful when we want to limit the log size ($ docker run -it --log-opt max-size=10m --log-opt max-file=3 alpine ash). Also, I hope that there can be an option to disable stackdriver logging in COS.

  3. add notes or comments to resources

    Add the ability to add notes or comments to resources, and make them visible to other users, for example it would be useful to add a note that an instance can be deleted, that way other user with right permissions can see and proceed with the deletion of the resource.

  7. Persistent Disk SLA documentation

    It will be helpful to have a documentation of SLAs for Persistent Disk as Compute Engine SLA doc only refers to the VM instance and Load Balancer. Since PD is zonal and regional, SLA will be different.

  8. Schedule Hardware Upgrades

    Changing RAM/Core count requires to shutdown the machine, editing it and starting it again.

    It would be nice if one could schedule a hardware upgrade so that all of this happens automatically at a chosen time and date. This would result in minimal downtime for non-redundant system.

  11. "Set enable-oslogin in project-wide metadata so that it applies to all of the instances in your project: Go to the Metadata page.

    "Set enable-oslogin in project-wide metadata so that it applies to all of the instances in your project:

    Go to the Metadata page.

    Go to the Metadata page
    Click Edit.
    Add a metadata entry where the key is enable-oslogin and the value is TRUE. Alternatively, set the value to FALSE to disable the feature.
    Click Save to apply the changes.

    "

    There is no edit button. The only button is to add metadata, which takes a key value pair. there is no option to turn on os-logon here

  12. deployment manager debug output

    When deploying templates via deployment manager, it would be helpful to be able to set a debug flag, which would provide more verbose details about what steps the deployment manager is going through to accomplish the creation of all relevant resources.

  13. Committed Use Discounts : vCPU & RAM reserved VS currently used

    On the Committed Use Discounts page, it can be very useful to have to have the difference between the reserved vCPU + RAM and the actual amount of vCPU + RAM currently used.

  15. gcloud commands auto copy to clipboard

    So in most parts of the gcp console when it click show gcloud command it auto selects the whole line and copies it to your clipboard. For example the GKE creation screen.

    Now logging into a GCE vm via gcloud ssh, it does not do it here, you have to manually select the whole line and copy the text.

    This is inconstant ux design and should be fixed, thats all.

    I request that GCP adds the same behaviour to ssh logins.

  16. Managed instance groups to re-use boot disks

    Apologies is this functionality exists, but can't see any options to allow it.

    To reduce the boot time of autoscaled MIG's would be great if the boot disks from previous instances which have been set to not auto delete would be re-used. This would avoid the 1 minute odd provisioning time on a windows host hopefully.

    Basically bring back online previous hosts in the mig, hosts in the MIG could also be numerically numbered from 1 > 1000 .

  18. port mirroring

    Need port mirroring functionality for real time network application debugging. We can make use of tcpdump functionality within the instance, but incase of appliances with limited user option, there must be support from cloud infra for port mirroring inside private VPC network.
