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. support caching in java AndroidServiceClient

    Using servicestack client in mobile development with Xamarin gives so much benefits and caching dramatically improves performance and user experience.
    It would be nice to have same caching support for all clients (.NET, JAVA, ..)

  2. OpenID Connect Auth Provider

    "OpenID Connect (OIDC) is an authentication layer on top of OAuth 2.0, an authorization framework." The benefit to developers and consumers is a more simplified way to add a new Auth provider which would provide some standard user info.

  3. Improvements for batched requests

    I've started working with request batching, which is a really nice feature. Everything works, but there two improvements I'd like to see.

    Firstly, for IReturnVoid requests there is SendAllOneWay, but there is no async version of that method.

    Secondly, I'd like to be able to specify a http Verb with the SendAll methods. The implementation should select the correct method in the service, both when calling a single request method multiple times, but also for the batched method. Right now the batched service methods always need to be Any(), it would be nice to be able to have Delete(OrderID[] orders).

  4. Create an object that supports the coming Redis Cluster feature with v3.0

    Much like you have created a RedisSentinel object ... I have a need for a RedisCluster object that supports the new feature which is coming in v3.0. Thanks.

  5. Support oAuth2 login to Swagger API

    Swagger now support oAuth login page to create a access_token to apply to a oAuth protected API: http://developers-blog.helloreverb.com/enabling-oauth-with-swagger/

    Please could you add a similar capability to ServiceSatck.SwaggerFeature that enables SS developers to add a similar capability to their own APIS that are protected by oAuth.

  8. Add BulkInsert/Bulk Copy to the ormlite databases you can

    Being able to bulk insert/copy would be cool.

    Adding support in so I could just take a list and

    Db.BulkCopy(listOfObjects);

    would be pretty sweet.

    SqlServer has the bulkCopy object, postgres has the copy command, sqlite has import (although no idea how well that works) , and mysql...well...who cares (i don't know what they have)

    Having a single interface for bulk copying objects into different databases I think would be a nice feature for ormlite. (not sure how feasible)

  10. Deeper SignalR Integration

    I'd like to see a deeper integration between ServiceStack and SignalR. Here are a few ideas that I've so far ran into...


    1. A Hub Authorization Attribute which implements IAuthorizeHubConnection and/or IAuthorizeHubMethodInvocation.


    2. Some sort of JsonServiceClient integration with HubConnections. Maybe automatically associating Cookies with a new HubConnection. Plus exception handling wrappers (i.e. Like an Unauthorized exception is thrown within a SignalR exception).


    3. Centralized documentation outlining what needs to be changed in the web.config for SignalR to co-exist with ServiceStack. Also why the UseBufferedStream property should be enabled for SignalR.


    4. This might require a separate feature request but an updated example app…

    The way ServiceStack and SignalR will be able to integrate in future will be through .NET Core’s IApplicationBuilder pipeline which by design supports running multiple frameworks within the same App that can now share the same default route namespace.

    From the v4.5.2, ServiceStack now supports running on .NET Core, please see the guide in the full release notes which shows how to register ServiceStack’s AppHost in .NET Core: http://docs.servicestack.net/releases/v4.5.2.html

    SignalR for .NET Core has yet to be released but it’s expected you’ll be able to access SignalR via its dependencies registered in .NET Core’s Startup which will also be injected in your Services like normal IOC dependencies.

    We’ll update this feature request again with an example showing a demo of ServiceStack + SignalR together in the same App once SignalR is available on .NET Core in 2017.

  11. Provide Async Support For Redis Client

    Currently redis client is not async - this is wasting valuable resources on the server side. As far as I understand async support is currently only there for service clients and not redis

  12. Support PostgreSQL array parameters

    Currently to send in an integer array as a parameter, I have to use format.

    var ids = "ARRAY[1,2,3]";
    var sql = "SELECT 1 = ANY[{0}]".Fmt(ids);
    Db.Query<Model>(sql);

    I would rather use syntax like this:
    var ids = new int[] {1, 2, 3};
    var sql = "SELECT 1 = ANY(@ids)";
    Db.Query<Model>(sql, new { ids });

  15. Built-in Active Directory Authentication suport.

    I would really like to see out of the box support for IWA - Integrated Windows Authentication with Active Directory. Many in-house .Net developers for both large and small organizations write web applications that are Intranet facing, and require the use of Integrated Windows Authentication with IIS. In these environments, corporate security policy often dictates that Active Directory group membership should drive what resources a user can and cannot access.
    So, Kerberos authentication often plays a big part in shipping the logged in user’s credentials via tickets from the application server to back end databases. Built-in support for a ServiceStack…

  16. Management Overview Dashboard

    While being able to offload to statsd/graphite/raygun/... is great, a "state of the nation" dashboard would be really handy.

    This could show requests/sec, wait times, "slow" requests, auth failures, live access map, recent exceptions, known issues (e.g. can't connect to redisX/mssqlY)

  17. AppHostMqListenerBase: AppHost with automatically registered MQ message handlers

    Create [self-hosted] apphost where all request messages are automatically registered to the MQ message service,
    so that all services can be accessed via MQ without the need to register every request type manually with something like "mqServer.RegisterHandler<Hello>(...)" .

    It would be nice if the order of operations of the mq message handling could be further aligned to the http variant.

  20. API Explorer/Meta data enhancements

    Building upon swagger feature, (but possibly re-engineering)

    Support to include:
    - complex (nested) DTO's and array
    - markdown documentation (for detailed description)
    - role/access based display (so only authorised endpoints are displayed)
    - rebranding support
    - ability to install nuget package without /docs folder (so as to get annotations, but not html in a model lib)
