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.

  1. Template chart

    A great feature would be to support template charts. The intention is that you have a query that calculates a client’s total gross revenue or the amount of credit card transactions they have processed in realtime. (e.g a text chart). This template could have one or multiple input parameters (think SQL stored procedure / view). Then we could display this chart per customer which would be a game changer to us because then we could tailor our embedded dashboards to each customer.

  2. Percentile Chart / Cumulative-Distribution-Function

    Often times just looking at just the average or min/max of the data might be misleading and understanding the distribution of the data is as important as the aggregated value itself. The Percentile Chart is useful for such scenarios as it helps to see the shape of the distribution, such as how big the tail is at either end, along with the value.

    My proposal is to integrate a percentile chart similar to what you find here : https://powerbi.microsoft.com/de-de/blog/visual-awesomeness-unlocked-percentile-chart/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumulative_distribution_function

    Thanks for the great work, I realy like mongo charts, keep going!

  3. Add Usage Metrics capturing Dashboard Views

    As a dashboard owner, I would like to know which dashboards are being used the most, by whom, and see count of views over time.

    As we evaluate "usage" of these MDB Charts Dashboards, I want to know if people are even using them "enough" to justify investing in creating or enhancing dashboards.

    I realize I could embed these charts into a separate website and slap Google Analytics onto the site to gain analytics / usage information. In lieu of this native feature, would you recommend that approach?

  4. Automatically convert urls into clickable links in dashboard and chart descriptions

    I have added urls in dashboard descriptions and would like them to be clickable so my description is more useful for me and for other users that I have shared my dashboard with. This will be great for charts descriptions too.

  5. Vpc vs Internet network traffic

    There's currently no way to tell if the network traffic shown in the chart comes from Internet or from one of the VPC peered networks.

    It would be interesting to be able to see the network traffic for each VPC and public internet so spikes on network activity could be easier to investigate. Also would allow migrations of networking configurations to be visualized and validated easier. As of now the only way I found to do that was to check the database access history to see the source IP of the clients.

    Also, I was thinking that likely Atlas does…

  6. See the charts used by a data source

    When editing the pipeline for a data source, there is a message saying "This data source is used by one or more charts. Any changes to the pipeline may impact these charts."

    It would be nice to have a convenient way to see a list of the charts used by that data source, so that I can fix the charts after modifying the data source pipeline.

    Currently, I need to go to each of my charts and click on the "Edit" button to see which data source it is using, which is inconvenient if I have a lot of charts.

  7. Expose MongoDB Logs as a Data Source to Charts

    I'd like to be able to chart some of the metrics from the logs into Charts. This will allow me to have one central place to see all the relevant data I want to chart.

  8. data source collection not shown if name is long

    If there are multiple collections with identical prefixes longer than 20 or so characters, it's not possible to tell them apart, making it impossible to see the data source collection

  9. Re-zero bar chart after clicking legend item on stacked bar chart

    Being able to highlight an individual series by clicking on its name in the legend great! Having an option to allow it to display as an ordinary bar chart so the relative heights within that series can be compared would be even better.

  10. Interactive Graph Visualization in Charts

    MongoDB advertises that it can be used as a graph database. Sample article https://www.mongodb.com/databases/mongodb-graph-database

    The power of a graph database is in it's interactivity and visualization. There are many visualization tools from native graph database software such as Neo4j Browser or Neo4j Bloom. While MongoDB may be able to store graph database content, the missing link is the ability to visualize and interact with graph data. Requesting for Charts to add Graph chart types that can be used by developers and for end users to consume.

  11. Import single charts in existing dashboards

    As we can now export dashboards as code, it could be great and very usefull to have the option of import a single chart (or some) into an existing dashboard.

  12. Use datasources from multiple projects

    Currently it seems to only be possible to create charts from databases on a single Project. My org has many teams using Atlas and we each work in separate Projects but occasionally we want to provide visualizations of our data that cross teams. Currently we can't do that because Charts is tied to a single project. To be clear, I'm not interested in being able to combine data from multiple databases into a single chart, but rather into multiple charts in the same dashboard.

  13. Add error bars to bar/line charts

    I have a dataset containing measurements, along with errors - e.g.
    {
    value: 187.12,
    error: 12.51
    }

    It would be quite useful to be able to plot the error values on a line chart so that we can see the uncertainty as well as the measured value.

  14. Grouped Bar chart as percentage numbers

    Hi,

    I have a bar chart which shows bars with numbers based on different types of products sold per month, like in Feb we have 3 bars for every product type being the quantities 57, 9, 167. I would like to show the percentages 24%, 3%, 71%

    The math is the following:
    count by value / Sum of all items * 100

    I'm using the (count by value) aggregator but that shows just the plain count

  16. Candle stick charts

    Since continuous line charts do not allow iterating through more than 50k documents, it would be great to have simple option to merge/ aggregate data e.g., into candle sticks for time ranges (per day, per week etc.)

  17. Data processing in the same cluster region

    Currently any data visible through the Charts UI is routed through AWS US East.

    For customers inside the European Union it could be problematic to transfer the data to the US due to GDPR and data protection laws. Especially when dealing with sensitive user data.

    Data processing in the same cluster region would be a huge improvement to Charts.

  19. Different Security Level to Add Data Sources
