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).

  1. Backend Hosting Environment

    When starting a new project one always has to build a backend environment. This includes managing users, user groups, user password changes, etc. etc. This requires a backend database and an admin front-end.

    Currently, we use the ASPNETZERO framework for this purpose. https://aspnetzero.com/ But the support, documentation, and performance leave a lot of room for improvement.

    We're looking to move away from ASPNETZERO as soon as we can find a replacement. Currently, their pricing starts at $1500 a year for updates and support. Something that I would gladly pay, except the documentation and support they provide is horrible.

    It would…

  2. Blazor support

    Blazor (www.blazor.net) seems to be the next revolution in web programming, where C# can be used instead of Javascript.

    However, WebAssembly is in essence still Javascript, and thus it seems that the C# client for Servicestack cannot be used:

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/56386712/servicestack-adding-blazor-support

    I would suggest looking into supporting Blazor client-side programming with ServiceStack, at least a C# client that works with the ServiceStack cli (https://docs.servicestack.net/csharp-client).

    Regards

  5. PocoDynamo Async APIs

    The ServiceStack.Aws.DynamoDb has only limited APIs that are async (currently 3 methods).

    I would like to see the rest of the APIs get an async overload.

    I hope that's enough of a description.

  6. OrmLite Support saving of PhysicalAddress

    Saving classes with properties of type PhysicalAddress does not work. The reason should be the serialization:

    [Test]
    public void JsvStringSerializerWorksForPhysicalAddress()
    {
    var address = PhysicalAddress.Parse("0123456789AB");

    var serializer = new JsvStringSerializer();
    var result = serializer.SerializeToString(address);
    StringAssert.Contains("0123456789AB", result);
    }

  7. Generate 1 Testmethod for each end point and create the object structure in MStest/Nunit/Xunit

    Currently we have to write a testmethod for each endpoint and define the DTOs and then provide data to test. Instead if we have a testfile generated which can act like template and teams just write data against it. This helps teams to have proper test coverage and would save the time to create these request and response models.(Which already ServicestackVS reference does)

  8. Allow Join with UpdateOnly

    Trying to UpdateOnly, when onlyField is typed as SqlExpression and the query has a Join an error will be thrown that says "The multi-part identifier "DepartmentJobCode.DepartmentId" could not be bound."

    Example:
    var jobsQuery = _db.From<dev.ScheduleEvent>()
    .Join<dev.DepartmentJobCode>((se,jc)=> se.Job == jc.JobTitleId)
    .Where<dev.DepartmentJobCode>(e => Sql.In(e.DepartmentId, departments))
    .Update(x => new { x.Published, x.ModifiedBy});
    db.UpdateOnly(new dev.ScheduleEvent { Published = false, ModifiedBy = userId}, onlyFields: jobsQuery);

  10. Auto Batched Requests - return responses up to error

    When an error occurs processing a batch of requests, the responses for the successful requests are lost. It would be helpful if these successful response are returned along with the error that stopped further processing.

  13. 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)?

  14. 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).

  15. 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.

  16. Increase the number of generics parameters of Select, SelectDistinct and GroupBy

    While some methods of SqlExpression<T> supports up to 15 generic parameters (Where, And, Or) others like Select, SelectDistinct and GroupBy only supports a couple. When building complex queries, it's easy to select data from more than 7 tables, or group by fields from more than 4 tables.

    Could you implement more Select, SelectDistinct and GroupBy overloads like you did for Where, And and Or?

    There is no specific number of parameters needed, but I think that the default 15 is a good start.

  17. 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.

  18. Add Emailing functionality to Verify Account, Request Password Reset

    It would be a good idea for users when using Service Stack Authentication to have functionality like Asp.net Identity to Verify their account, reset their password.

  19. Allow cookie names to be configurable

    In order to improve security it would be beneficial to change cookie names from const to a configurable option. It would help mask the presence of service stack and improve security in accordance with OWASP recommendations - https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Session_Management_Cheat_Sheet#Session_ID_Name_Fingerprinting
