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 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.

      • 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

        • 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"
          }

            • 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.

              • Create a ss-utils.js like library that shares ServiceStack backend Validation Feature rules with AngularJs 4 Reactive Forms

                Validation Rules should live in one place.

                AN Angular4 component should be able to call myservice/validation and get the validation rules for front-end inline form validation. This has to be the number one most overlooked feature of any framework or stack I have ever seen.

                Using the Validation Feature/Fluent Validation rules expressed on the back-end, a standard JSON response could be serialized, using reflection of the back-end POCO models and than sent to AngularJs 4 front-end, that Reactive Forms could ingest.

                This front-end library should not have any dependency on jQuery and the focus should be on AngularJs Reactive Forms…

                  • RediSearch Client forthcoming from ServiceStack?

                    I was just reading about the Redis Labs new RediSearch product for use in implementing a search engine in Redis. I saw in the RediSearch product page that StackExchange has a C# client for this product. Do you plan to implement RediSearch client in ServiceStack.Redis? I prefer ServiceStack modules to StackExchange.

                    If this is your roadmap, can you project delivery of such a client?

                    Keep up the good work! Thanks!

                    • Group operations on metadata page by the service they are in

                      By default the metadata page could group the operations by the service they are in.
                      All user operations under UserService.
                      Order operations under OrderService.
                      etc.

                      • 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

                                The API request logger logs all fields and there is now way to disable any of them. Specifically, logging the users cookie each time takes up a huge amount of space and also makes the display difficult to use. Please add a config option to allow control over which fields get logged.

                                      Hi

                                      In my application user can define multiple filters for specific type. I would like to somehow combine these queries in single one.

                                      SqlExpression<Notice> query1 = Db.From<Notice>(s=>s.param1 == 2);
                                      // ...queries are more complicated but result type is same
                                      SqlExpression<Notice> query2 = Db.From<Notice>(s=>s.param1 == 3 && s.param2 == 3);

                                      SqlExpression<Notice> unionAll = query1.UnionAll(query2);
                                      var result = Db.Select(unionAll);

                                      • Support AWS S3 Versioning with VirtualFiles.WriteFile

                                        I believe we can retrieve specific versions of a file via the versionId querystring using VirtualFiles.... however VirtualFiles.WriteFile returns null so we cannot retrieve the x-amz-version-id header. It would be nice if the headers were in the response of VirtualFiles.WriteFile so we could retrieve that.

                                        • Add the ability to select the serialization mode(Array,Map) in plugin "MsgPack Format".

                                          To MsgPack was really comfortable as JSON, you must add the possibility of setting "Map" mode. This will give more compatibility when migrating from one version to another, when service is updated, but clients have not yet had time.
