  1. Configurable number of insertion workers per collection for mongomirror

    Mongorestore allows for the number of concurrent insertion workers per collection to be increased using the [--numInsertionWorkersPerCollection](https://docs.mongodb.com/database-tools/mongorestore/#std-option-mongorestore.--numInsertionWorkersPerCollection) option.

    However, this is not available for mongomirror -- while you can increase the number of collections copied in parallel ([--numParallelCollections](https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/mongomirror/#std-option-mongomirror.--numParallelCollections)), there's no parameter surfaced to allow more inserts to be occurring at the same time over multiple threads within each collection.

    |t would be helpful to have a parameter like this to use to increase parallelization in order to increase the speed of migrations of large collections.

  2. [Atlas] Enforce password policy for DB access

    Currently is not possible to enforce any kind of password policy via Atlas UI.
    Would be nice to let user define an expiration time and password policy that user should meet.

  3. Define via UI time windows on which the cluster is paused

    Test environment are usually paused during the night and the weekends. Currently the only way to do that is to automatise a RestAPI call or call mongocli automatically (e.g. via crontab)
    Would be nice to allow to define a time windows on which the cluster stays pause via UI

  4. Support native Azure authentication for the DB, e.g. service principal

    Customers often want centralized permissioning for the database and LDAP is not generally supported well in the cloud. If a customer is using Azure, they want us to support Azure AD for database authentication. I believe that means using service principals

  5. Add "Copy as JSON" to Performance Advisor

    In Performance Advisor, I can see sample queries for each index suggestion.
    They are formatted "nicely" for human viewing, but to actually investigate it, one would want to copy it as valid mongodb json, and run it with explain or analyze it in compass, or even just run it in a console to see how long it runs before and after the index addition.
    However, there is no way of doing that, and I have multiple times "translated" the good looking ui to a mongo query so I could run it elsewhere.
    This is a tedious and annoying thing (especially…

  6. Allow the ability for a rolling cluster restart like during maintenance

    Currently there is no way to test how applications behave during maintenance apart from waiting for maintenance, the ability to force a rolling cluster restart as happens during maintenance would be great. The failover is a different process and affects primary mainly.

  7. mongomirror with db rename

    We have a need to rename our databases as we sync them over to Atlas. However, mongomirror doesn't support that. So that leaves us with mongodump and mongorestore but our databases are large enough that we can't take the outage window necessary to go down that path. When will mongomirror support renaming databases during the import process?

  8. Live Migrate modal: Allow users to point and click to select another Atlas source cluster

    It is often practical to Live Migrate from one Atlas cluster to another Atlas cluster (e.g. to create another staging environment if backups are not enabled on the source, or migrate a production/staging environment to another dedicated project with minimal downtime).

    Currently, the Live Migrate modal requires connection details from the source cluster, including the hostname of the primary, port, etc. Validation will fail if there are typos/errors in these inputs.

    It would be easier to have a point-and-click option to "Migrate from another Atlas cluster" -- it could be a drop-down menu with names of other Atlas clusters in…

  9. Allow customer encryption key validation time interval

    Currently, Atlas has a 15 minute interval where it checks access to remotely stored Customer Managed Encryption keys for the custom encryption at rest feature.

    This value is not changeable, and it implies a problem: access to encryption keys can be lost for longer periods than 15 minutes without that implying that the key has been invalidated by the customer.

    A perfect example of this was the recent Azure AD global outage that prevented all authentication to the Azure platform for about 3 hours (complete outage description: https://app.azure.com/h/SM79-F88/691d78). While the key used for one of our clusters was not…

  10. Expose Atlas Replica Set Tags in UI

    Atlas replica set members are pre-configured with tag sets: https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/replica-set-tags/

    There's no way to see what the tags are set to via the UI. It would be helpful to see this information.

  11. Make it possible to add tags in the Datadog integration so I can tell my staging and production environments apart more easily

    Datadog recommends having only one account and feed data from all environments into it, and then it’s important to tell them apart by using tags.

    Please add the ability to set tags in the Datadog integration configuration, e.g. env:production

  12. Restrict specific users or client IPs to only Analytics node(s)

    There are use-cases where certain users or client IPs need to be given access restricted to only the Analytics node(s) . While it is possible to grant such users read-only permissions at the database/collection level, and have them use the ANALYTICS replica set tag in their connection string URI, it might still be possible for those users to connect to a Primary or a Secondary node (when not using the Analytics replica set tag) and run their query there.

    Therefore, a feature that will either restrict specific users access to only the Analytics node(s) or a functionality that will restrict…

  13. Log browser and log search capability across replicaset nodes.

    Currently to search through logs we have to download them and search through each log. It would be helpful to have a log browser capability that would allow us to look through and search all logs from the Atlas portal interface.

  14. Log user Login to Activity Feed for Auditing

    When a user logins into the Atlas Portal this is logged to the Activity Feed.

    This feature would allow to better user auditing and identify potential security breaches.

  16. Allow Billing Alerts per Project

    Currently, we can configure Atlas to send an alert when the current bill for any project is above a specific amount. It would be great to be able to set alerts for specific projects. This way we could more easily manage budget fors projects and alert project owners.

  20. MongoDB Atlas Provider for AWS CDK

    We use AWS CDK to deploy our infrastructure. Currently there is only a Terraform provider available to automate the MongoDB Atlas deployment. We would like to have such a provider also for AWS CDK.

    In a first step this provider should support:
    - mongodbatlascluster create, edit and delete clusters
    - mongodbatlas
    databaseUser create and remove users

    Later full feature set like in Terraform should be supported.

    Currently we use a self written provider. But this has hundreds of lines of code and means a lot of maintenance effort. For our teams this additional effort can be a reason to…
