Postgres 12 was released in 10/2019 and offers many new and important features we already use across all our apps. Please make Version 12 available so we can migrate our databases to render.com
Ability to change onrender.com sub-domain
I would like to be able to change the onrender.com subdomain after I create the web-service in case I made a mistake in naming or if I want to change the naming for logical grouping, etc..
Site dashboard UI
When you have the UI in a half window the [settings] button disappear on the left and is not accessible. Also the icons are a mess
Basic HTTP Metrics
For HTTP services, it would be great to see some basic stats like # of requests by status code, etc. in the "Metrics" tab of the application
Enable Native Static Outbound IPs
Some applications use third party hosted databases like MongoDB Atlas or Google Spanner, which can be secured with an allowed IP list. Render users can now use https://www.quotaguard.com as an addon to get a static outbound IP for all their services. This feature requires setting up QuotaGuard through the Addons screen in the Render dashboard. Allow users to request and enable static outbound IPs for some or all of their services natively without QuotaGuard.
Support for serverless scripts
I would like to be able to replace Amazon Lambda with a serverless setup hosted on Render.
Currently there is no official way to deploy a monorepo to render. there is work arounds but on each commit all the other services will register that and rebuild even when not modified.
Ability to SSH into instances
As I currently understand it, the only way to access a shell is through the online shell. Being able to SSH in would be useful for: Easy of use. I'm familiar with how my shell works, but in the online shell, it seems like some things don't work (eg navigating with the arrow keys or tab completion). Debugging. I sometimes want to copy over a file (eg an output or log) to analyze locally, or upload some seed data. Testing new code. One of our use cases is a dev server where we can experiment with code changes live (and on a machine that has all the dependencies installed, etc). We currently have an EC2 instance set up for this, and we'd love to replace it. With true ssh, you can properly edit things on a remote host.
