Charts

MongoDB Charts is the best way to create visualizations of MongoDB data. Connect to any MongoDB instance as a data source, create charts and graphs, embed them into your applications or build live dashboards for sharing and collaboration.

  2. Ability to send email / slack alerts based on the data in the charts

    Charts usually contain aggregated / pivoted data. Ability to alert on a specific variable would be great !

    Timeout was increased from 60 seconds to 90 seconds. There aren’t currently plans to increase it further, but keeping the issue open in case it needs it be looked at again in the future.

  4. Permissions level to create charts but not data sources

    We use the new data source pipelines feature to scrub our data sources of sensitive information. Unfortunately, though, right now if a user has permission to create a chart, then they have permission to create data sources. This undoes all of the work to protective sensitive information! Having a permission level that allows a user to create new charts but not new data sources would greatly improving the security/privacy of our data when working with MongoDB Charts.

    Thanks for the feedback Eric. Your scenario is very valid and we’d like to support this. We’d like to integrate this into the Atlas permissions model properly, rather than make it a Charts-only thing, so it may take us a little while to sort this out.

  6. Data Source Management API

    It would be helpful for bulk management to have an API to remove/add or modify data sources.

  7. Different Security Level to Add Data Sources

    I would like to restrict who can add data sources to a charts project.
    I want to allow individuals to author their own dashboards and charts but I would like a smaller group the ability to add data source

  10. Do not allow same item to be added to data sources

    We are seeing that we will have the same data source added multiple times.
    This is confusing to the end user

    Thanks Scott. We currently allow this because it’s possible the user would want to have multiple data sources pointing to the same collection, but with different data source pipelines.

    That said I agree 100% that it’s confusing, and we have some plans to rework data sources to avoid this situation.

  11. Allow non Atlas data on Dashboard

    In the on-prem version of Charts the page at
    https://docs.mongodb.com/charts/onprem/data-sources#std-label-add-data-source

    mentions,

    Procedure
    From the Data Sources list, click the New Data Source button.
    Enter the Connection String URI of the MongoDB deployment to which you want to connect.

    For the Atlas version I would like to pull data from any of my Internet accessible MongoDB servers to form a more complete enterprise dashboard. Much like with Compass, all that is needed is a connection string and you are off too charting. The strict only Atlas data access is a bit too restrictive IMHO.

  13. Allow $merge aggregation for Charts data sources

    We would like to have separate databases for each client. They will have access to dashboards we create with their respective data but we would like to have some dashboards for internal use that combine the data from multiple clients. Merging collections in different db's would accomplish this.

  14. Make Mongo Charts works with self hosted database

    I want to keep hand on my data and prefer to run mongodb database on my servers.

    Mongo charts is not so easy to maintain compared to mongoDB so i am interested in the cloud solution, but connected on my self hosted databases.

  15. Default source

    When adding a chart normally you are using the same data source over and over. Why not pre-select that data source so that you avoid having to click that per every chart you add

  16. External data sources for text charts

    Say you have multiple background jobs that are responsible for caching expensive queries. Instead of migrating these complex queries to charts you could instead expose the raw value via a REST endpoint.
