  1. Put some kind of connection string generator / link / text on the "Database Access" screen

    Hello!

    It took quite a while for me to find a template connection string for Atlas, as I only thought to check the "Database Access" screen. Eventually I found the "Connect" button the "Clusters" screen, but it was a pretty frustrating time looking for something as essential as a connection string.

    It would be great if you added something that would have prevented that-- a little widget where you pick your cluster and it spits out a template string. Or even just some text like "Looking for your connection string? Go to clusters, it's over there!"

    Thanks!

  2. Atlas policies

    In the MongoDB atlas portal, there should be a way to configure policies across an organization. ie: policies to restrict users from creating clusters from certain cloud providers (ie: azure), restrict users from creating databases of a certain size, etc.

  6. Support encryption key management with a 100% EU-based provider

    More and more large corporations in the EU are no longer using services that both host data and manage encryption keys with American companies due to the invalidation of Privacy Shield.

    For a small SaaS-provider as ourselves, it is pushing us in the direction of having to choose between using MongoDB Atlas and losing a certain share of our clients, or figuring out a different database solution. We do not like these two choices.

    We lost a deal with a major telecom company just this week due to us not wanting to replace MongoDB for our database. And there are…

  7. To modify transactionLifetimeLimitSeconds parameter

    As this is one of the most common request from Atlas customers to modify transactionLifetimeLimitSeconds it would be beneficial to grant the privilege so the Atlas customers are able change this parameter within a certain limit. Please add this functionality.

  8. More granular permissions *for API keys*

    Allow API keys to have much more granular permissions (i.e: only the functions one may need to do a certain task).

    Also, add a security category in the form to report possible improvements for Atlas.
    And a UI/UX one.

  9. Support GCP Private Services Access to Atlas

    Hello,

    this is a request to support Private Service Access for Atlas deployments on GCP. Today, our options with Atlas are IP access lists or VPC Peering. However, these options create downstream limitations for our organizations. Additionally, only one peering connection can be made per Atlas project, which also limits us.

    Thanks

  10. Cancel restore

    There should be an option to stop once the restoration is given. Or there should be an option to revert a backup restore. This is required because we can restore an old production back up to Production only. If by mistake we do that we should be able to revert back.

  13. Left Side menu collapse

    on the laptop screen, we have't much space for querying the data filter portion. If we have an option to collapse the left side menu, it may get more working space.

  14. Allow to provide names/descriptions for peering connections

    If the user has 3 peering connections in a project, it's error prone terminating one, as you may end the connection with the wrong VPC and cause a disaster. Adding a description field allows to clearly see the purpose of the peering.

  15. API Key Expiration date

    We have a security reqirement that secrets must expire after 2 years.

    Therefore it would be awesome if MongoDB Atlas API Keys would support an expiration date.

    Somethig similar exists for the IP Whitelisting. Here we have the option to remove IP Whitelist entries after er certain time period. But for API Keys it would be better to have an expiration date and keep the API Key in the list even if its expired.

    In addition it would be good to have a daily notification once the expiration date is ahead less than 30 day.

  16. improve error messaging

    We are running into misleading error messages that learners are complaining about. This error appears when a user tries to use a $limit stage and forgets to add a $ while connected to a Free Tier Atlas cluster:
    "OperationFailure: limit is not allowed in this atlas tier, full error: {'ok': 0, 'errmsg': 'limit is not allowed in this atlas tier', 'code': 8000, 'codeName': 'AtlasError'}":
    This has been confusing for users. Is there a way that we can catch this issue more precisely and issue a syntax error instead?

  18. Increase the notice period for changes

    You need to increase the notice period that you provide to your customers for changes that could affect their ability to connect to their database.

    A good example of this was the upcoming change announced yesterday "Prepare for MongoDB Atlas TLS certificate root change starting May 1, 2021". You provided 3 days notice which is woefully inadequate.

    I work with a lot of large financial institutions and have contractual obligations to provide them with 20 business days advance notice for any planned maintenance. This is simply not possible with the notice periods that you provide.

  19. max database users not visible

    We need more than 100 database users, and have had the limit raised for existing projects, but new projects require us to have the limit increased. There is no way for us to verify which projects have the default 100 database users and which ones have had the limit raised. It would also be nice to track the percentage or number of database users available as a metric.

  20. Allow domain or URL for whitelisting

    Currently Atlas IP Access List entries allow to specify only either a single source IP addresses or ranges of IP addresses using CIDR notation. It would be great if user can add a domain or url for whitelisting where the IP address or range is not static.
