  1. Add support for arbiters

    We have a situation where we are required to build in an AWS region that only has two AZs (ca-central-1). In addition, there are no other AWS regions in the country (Canada). And due to our requirement around data sovereignty, we can't host this data set within a different country.

    Because of this, we can't guarantee our cluster will stay up if we lose a single AZ unless we put an arbiter in a 2nd region (since no data is copied to the arbiter). However, Atlas does not support arbiters currently. I know arbiters aren't ideal, but in this edge…

  2. Requesting database wise billing data in a shared cluster

    Currently we developing a portal to provide cost details to each customer who are using our platform. We have shared clusters in out pre environment and need to calculate cost for each customer for lower environment.

    Better if you can provide an API call to get this database wise cost details.

  3. Allow to Peer with VPC's that doesn't follow Private Networks Ranges

    Allow to Peer with VPC's that doesn't follow Private Networks Ranges

    Currently I have one infrastructure based on a VPC with the CIDR range of 30.0.0.0/16, and I'm unable to make it safe with VPC peering because of the restrictions on this.

    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/security-vpc-peering/

    I thinl that allowing to peer with any AWS VPC's that do not overlap would be nice, as it is difficult to change the VPC when you have a running infrastructure, just to integrate safely with MongoDB Atlas

  4. Fix a glitch in the web app's UI

    Just pointing out a little glitch in the UI:
    When we have very long values, the key is invisible and the field type is pushed to the side.
    Screenshot attached.

  7. Missing time zone name

    I was trying to Select my country's timezone but I could not find it. Namibia's timezone is Africa/Windhoek +2 GMT or otherwise Central Africa Time +2 GMT after it abolished the Daylight savings time in 2017. However, none of the options are available for timezone selection when setting cloud preferences.

    Please note I can not use another country's timezone even if they are similar.

  8. Add a single-node option.

    mLab had the option to create a single-node deployment, which was very nice for development environments where redundancy isn't important, but keeping costs down is.

    Would be nice to see this in Atlas as well.

  11. Give an option to pause the cluster as a parameter, at the moment it is auto activating after 30 days of cluster pause which is not required

    Give an option to pause the cluster as a parameter for specific duration of time, at the moment it is auto activating after 30 days of cluster pause which is not required for all the users and manually we have to keep an eye on this at the moment.

  12. 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…

  14. Add Support for AD/LDAP Token Groups

    This is a request to add support for the Token Groups LDAP attribute included in Active Directory’s LDAP implementation:

       https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/adschema/a-tokengroups
    

    Currently Atlas/Mongo only supports looking up group membership from queries against the user object in LDAP (typically by looking at the “memberOf” attribute). This attribute does not include groups to which a user is a member via nested groups (being in a group that is also a member of another group). An LDAP filter can be added to the user group lookup which uses recursive filters to find all groups, however, that approach has the following problems:

    • Recursive lookups are…

  16. More detail and lead time around maintenance notifications

    When we get email notifications of upcoming maintenances, it doesn't specify if the update is "urgent" or "low". When we received our last notice, it was 3 days out. If it's urgent, then we understand the short time frame around the notice. However, if it's a lower priority update, I would hope we could configure how far out we are aware of the maintenance or at a minimum get notified 2 weeks prior so we can communicate to our end users.

    Additional information around what the maintenance is for would be appreciated as well. Something along the lines of "Patching…

  17. Have a page that describes different commands necessary to mongodump a local database and transfer that to atlas. Describe only that

    Have a page that describes different commands necessary to mongodump a local database and transfer that to atlas. Don't include descriptions of all the options for whatever commands are necessary to do that, only write what is precisely necessary to do that. Include an example like the following:

    Database name: testDatabase Host address: testAddress Username: testName
    Password: testPass

    mongodump --db=testDatabase

    mongorestore --host testAddress --username testName --password testPass --authenticationDatabase admin --db testDatabase ./testDatabase

    END OF EXAMPLE

    I don't know what commands actually work to create a file that can be uploaded to an Atlas cluster because the documentation doesn't have a…

    There's no way to stream logs from MongoDB on Atlas right now. I should be able to stream logs, either to Datadog or Cloudwatch or something!

  19. Suggested actions for alerts

    Alerts are often very cryptic & don't provide any useful information. For example, when alerting that queries are returning too many rows, without informing me the query or at least the collection, that's very useless. I'm looking at a replication oplog window alert right now and I have no idea what to do about it.

  20. 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
