Feature Requests

Feature, docs and use-case samples requests for ServiceStack. If you can, focus on the end-user benefit / use-case, rather than the technical details so we can focus on the end-goal and free us to work on how best to achieve it. Features can also include supporting content, e.g. a starter project on how to use ServiceStack with another product (e.g. SS + SharePoint).

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Support for ServiceStack Client in NativeScript applications

    I think that ServiceStack TypeScript client does not work in NativeScript + Angular2 applications, as I am getting a bunch of weird errors when trying that (in Fetch module).

    I installed the module as this:
    npm install --save @servicestack/client

    Is there support for the TypeScript client in NativeScript applications? If not, Id like there to be =)

    • Silence code analysis for "Add ServiceStack reference..." generated code.

      The generated code does not conform to company rules so I get a bunch of useless warnings when I run code analysis on my solution.

      Just adding a

      // <auto-generated>
      // This code was generated by ServiceStack.
      // </auto-generated>

      block above or below the /* Options: */ block would be enough to exclude the generated file from code analysis.

      • PocoDynamo - Support Distributed Locks

        The Redis client supports distributed locks, which is a really useful feature, the same is possible using DynamoDB.

        Reference Implementation:

          • Support OAuth2 on .net core

            At the moment, the *OAuth2 Providers for ServiceStack* library does not support .net core, as explained by mythz in this StackOverflow answer:

            > ServiceStack's OAuth2 depends on DotNetOpenAuth which unfortunately doesn't support .NET Core so there's currently no support for OAuth2 - https://stackoverflow.com/a/42344183/969613

            Google Authentication is a feature requirement on my current project, so this one thing is preventing us from moving to .net core, support for this would be great.

              • Two Factor Authentication Feature

                Two Factor Authentication is a pretty standard thing nowadays, it even comes baked into the typical ASP.NET Core Identity system. It would be nice if Service Stack had this feature as well. We are working on porting a legacy application from ASP.NET to ServiceStack and this is a requirement for government applications (some form of TFA).

                • Improve QueryStringSerializer.SerializeToString to use lowercase bools

                  Right now, bools are serialized uppercase since that's the default ToString behavior of .NET.

                  Consider changing this behavior by checking for bool when serializing and using .ToString().ToLower(), or introduce a setting to control this. It's web standard to use lowercase bools in query strings.

                  • Autoquery to support Group By

                    The AutoQuery plugin is great especially for use with many front end grids/tables, however it lacks the ability to Group By. Can you implement it to have feature parity to work with many of the front end grid components (ie kendo grid/devexpress/etc)?

                    • Add a MQ Server support for Azure Storage Queues

                      Storage Queues are cheaper and more performant than azure service bus if guaranteed first-in-first-out, etc is not required.

                      They do offer 'At-Least-Once' guaranteed delivery, where Redis is 'fire and forget'.

                      Combining this with full featured CosmoDb caching instead of Redis would make a compelling low-cost option.

                      • Stripe Events

                        The ServiceStack Stripe library currently doesn't support retrieving of Stripe Events. It would be nice to have this feature especially when working with webhooks.

                        As it currently stands, I either have to install both the Stripe.net and ServiceStack.Stripe packages in my project, or switch to using just the Stripe.net package.

                        • MiniProfiler async support

                          Some older release notes https://github.com/ServiceStack/ServiceStack/blob/net40/docs/2015/release-notes.md states that Mini Profiler async support is there, but unless I am missing something, using v5.0, I cannot get it to work. Looking at ProfiledCommand, it does not actually overload the async overloads and call IDbProfiler methods.

                          MiniProfiler integrated this last februari: https://github.com/MiniProfiler/dotnet/commit/8973afb7bd418a37ce38e0805dc3636942ea7788

                              ADOMD.net Cubes as a source of data. I think this would be huge in adding a provider to the mix and utilize Analysis Service cubes to return faster data/query's for warehouse service use.

                              • Enum Serialization and Typescript String Enums

                                I understand if this is changed it may break projects based on Typescript < 2.4. I propose a new flag or option to serialize enum strings as enum strings instead of string literals. This would minimally allow us to get access to the list of strings available for an enum which is not readily available with a string Literal.

                                Instead of this:

                                export type MessagePriority = "Normal" | "Low" | "High";

                                It would be:

                                export enum MessagePriority{
                                Normal = "Normal",
                                Low = "Low",
                                High = "High"
                                }

                                  • ServiceStack should has native support for building microservice

                                    Microservice is the modern and hot trending architectural design pattern now, ServiceStack should has builtin feature to support building microservice. In Java world they have Spring Boot / Spring Cloud to wire together other open source technologies such as Nextflix Ribbon, Eureka, Kafka etc. to build microservice.

                                    Basically, ServiceStack should be identified itself to be not only a framework of choice to build not only RESTful webservice but also a full-fledged platform such as the Java's Spring framework

                                      • Enable validation of metadata attributes - e.g. IsRequired

                                        Currently when a field is marked as IsRequired=true via the OpenAPI attribute it has no relevance to validation. However, it seems very reasonable that when someone marks a field as required, they would want validation that said field was indeed supplied in the DTO. Enabling validation on metadata attributes natively would provide developers this funcitonality without requiring they write a seperate validation method which also lists the required fields.
