  1. Allow SSL on Cloud Storage with a CNAME

    As per your docs here https://cloud.google.com/storage/docs/reference-uris#cname its not possible to use SSL when also using CNAME. It would be great if you guys could fix this limitation.

  5. Better permission control

    I'd like to give a service account access to write (upload) to a bucket, but not to delete files. This allows backups to run from the server being backed up to Google Cloud Storage, without concern that an attacker could login and then also destroy all backups from the compromised server itself. This particular example would also be resolved by allowing bucket data to be archived to a different bucket at certain intervals.

  6. Would like to zip files inside a Google Cloud Storage Bucket with gsutil or GCS php client

    Zip a number of files and them save on GCS or download and destroy the ZIP to enable a quick way to download several files at the same time.

  7. Fully managed SFTP service for GCS

    I have customers that require SFTP and I use GCS. I'm using third party software for this now but I would prefer gcp had a native offering for this like AWS does.

  8. A way to sync GitHub/GCP Git repos with Google Cloud Storage!

    So when you push changes to some git repo, they get automatically synced to GCS! Would be pretty cool.

  9. Add the ability to specify a default cache-control header of a bucket

    There should be a way to specify a default cache-control header value of an entire bucket. Currently cache-control maxAge is hard coded to 3600 (1 hour). If you wish to change this, you have to manually specify a cache-control value for each object uploaded using the gcloud CLI.

    I suggest a new global bucket preference that changes the default cache-control of all objects that DON'T have a custom cache-control value already provided. I.E. changing this bucket value changes all objects that have a null cache-control provided.

  10. gsutil should update its cache when permission errors occur.

    After adding storage write access to a compute engine access scope, gsutil still reported 403 Insufficient Permission.
    The fix was to delete ~/.gsutil which then addressed the issue.
    This is not obvious to the user. Can gsutil identify if the cache is dirty or at least provide a message to the user on what to do for this issue?

  11. Display and manage lifecycle/versioning configuration in Developers Console

    The Developers Console should allow us to view the existing configuration and change the configuration for lifecycle management and versioning.

  13. Have an archive option

    Have an option to archive data to another bucket after a certain age. This archival bucket could be a different class of storage and then permanently delete after a further number of days.

  14. More AWS S3 Transfer and Migration Tooling

    Currently, the Google Storage Transfer Service requires the following Amazon S3 permissions on the bucket:
    List the Amazon S3 bucket
    Get the location of the bucket
    Read the objects in the bucket

    I'd love it if there was S3 transfer and migration tooling that doesn't require FULL S3 bucket permissions.
