  1. Implement AWS transit gateway support

    VPC peering and Private Endpoints have limitations that make them unusable in some environments. Implementing native transit gateway support would allow admins with hybrid infrastructures and strict security requirements to control routing and security at a lower level then is currently supported.

    VPC peers do not support pass through routing, so organizations that use transit gateways to attach IPSEC tunnels or other external networks to AWS are unable to access atlas servers via these peer connections.

    Private Endpoints do allow connectivity in these cases, but cause an additional layer of expense, complexity, and reduced security. First, the "user" side still…

  2. Download file button for GridFS on Atlas GUI

    When using the "Browse Collection" feature from the Atlas Web frontend it would be nice to be able to download/view files stored in GridFS. Tools like "Studio3T" or "NoSQLBooster for MongoDB" support that use case.

  3. Need "Inactive" sessions "Terminated" connected via Atlas

    We need a feature that would automatically timeout individual user "inactive" sessions after x number of minutes, connected via Atlas. Thanks

  4. TDE Encryption Key automatically rotation

    when we got the alert like "Azure encryption key needs rotation", we need connected to our it team and they rotated the key in azure key vault then they shared us the value of new Key Identifier, then we logged into atlas and under security-->Advanced under that we updated the Key Identifier under Encryption at Rest using your Key Management option, all these steps we were done manually.

    Is it possible to rotate/update the key automatically, when the key is rotated in azure key vault, without doing it manually.

  5. Add filters for easily finding projects that have encryption/audit enabled in the UI

    The https://cloud.mongodb.com/v2#/clusters has certain filters to get specific Atlas clusters. Can we add couple of more filters that can easily identify, whether that project has been enabled for encryption at rest or if the auditing has been enabled/disabled. This will help us easily generate reports for cis20 reporting.

  6. Limit the Cloud Providers and Regions available for a given org/project or role

    A large financial customer wants to ensure that clusters can only be deployed to specific cloud providers and regions based on policy. Could we add an Atlas security control that limited the available cloud providers and regions for cluster creation/configuration for a given Atlas org or project?

  7. Allow --removeAutoIndexId option to Atlas live migration as default

    Apparently Atlas live migration does not support --removeAutoIndexId option due to which some collections having autoIndexId set to false does not allow live migration to work successfully. Please add --removeAutoIndexId option to live migration.

  9. API for Granting Infrastructure Access to MongoDB Support for 24 Hours

    As per documentation at https://www.mongodb.com/docs/atlas/security-restrict-support-access/#grant-infrastructure-access-to-mongodb-support-for-24-hours one can grant access for support for 24h only via the UI. It would be very useful to be able to do this via the Atlas API.

  10. Reshard Global Writes Collections

    MongoDB supports resharding, so not being able to change the global writes shard configuration is very strange. It makes it impossible to fix mistakes with the shard configuration. Even if it requires blocking to redo or remove the shard configuration it should be possible.

  11. Trigger runtime is US by default which is not GDPR compliant for EU countries

    The ATLAS Trigger UI should let the user select the region for the realm deployment done in the background. At the moment it's not fair because (1) at no moment you're noticed the runtime will be in the US (and for UE countries it matters a lot, it's not GDPR compliant) and (2) it makes the nice ATLAS Trigger UI useless for UE countries...

    We're forced to create a realm app manually to be able to select a local deployment. We appreciated the 'trigger' section on the ATLAS side. It's more integrated and makes following trigger operations easier. Now trigger…

  12. Data migration from Cloud manager to Atlas

    With reference to case https://support.mongodb.com/case/00918578 we experienced situation where the migration was in a stuck state eternally. If the validation checks fail, then it is only fair and logical to fail the migration with a relevant error rather than the status lying about your shard migration is in progress.

    Also, emit status updates on the migration, such as pre-validation checks passed, syncing data, and % complete on data migration or initial sync rather than just a green bar, and whatever else such as if it is building indexes, etc during migration. Basically, make the status as readable and logical as…

  13. Make Real Time Performance Panel, Data Explorer and Performance Advisor and Profiler GDPR compliant

    As the data used for Real Time Performance Panel, Data Explorer and Performance Advisor and Profiler are processed/routed in/over the USA european customers that need to be GDPR compliant can't activate those three options. Unfortunately these three features offer a great feature set which really hurts to not have. This is a high prio topic for us.

  14. MFA Painful to use due to need for frequent logins

    Even though I use the same computer, I need to re-login every single day (possibly more frequent) - which is even more painful when using MFA.
    Should have the option to stay logged in longer on same machine/IP address - perhaps make it an configurable option

  15. We can provide a resume / pause option to Mongodb export & import

    The Mongodb export and import when used for uploading large or very large files are susceptible for interruptions.
    It would be great, if we can provide a resume options while import or exporting the files like how we have in Oracles expdp

  16. Provide "Password Age" for Atlas password auth users via Atlas API

    Similar to "Last Login Date" suggestion, add the age of the password for SCRAM users. I see that https://jira.mongodb.org/browse/SERVER-3197 was closed as "Won't Fix", but this will at least allow reporting, audit, external maintenance, etc.

  18. Add ability to chose the new primary node when you perform a test election

    There's a "test failover" option, which shuts down the primary and forces an election. However, you have no control over which new primary will be elected (just the preferred region) which sometimes does not work as expected.

    It would be really useful if you have the possibility to manually chose which node will be elected as the new primary.

  19. Add an option to include sample data during cluster build

    When working through tutorials or University courses, often you need to build a new cluster and then add sample data to it. It would be nice if you could just check a box in the cluster creation page to have the cluster brought up with sample data already provisioned, thus combining two commonly used steps, into one.
