  1. Disable Specific API's

    For certain API's, like the ability to Delete a backup, have the ability for an Owner to disable this API call entirely, to prevent bad actors from being able to destroy a system or even a good actor from unintentionally destroying a system. If a customer has a policy that no backups shall be deleted ever, have the ability to disable this API across the board.

  2. Cloud backup is not very much use-full for emergency cases and we are blocked

    Hello Team,

    This is Raja Selvam,

    I would like to get more details on Clod backup.

    Lets say suppose i would like to get yesterday's backup from one of the collection.

    I do not want to restore the backup into another new cluster.
    I do not want to download the backup since my Data will be around 1 TB, Incase if I go for download option this will take 1 day.

    This solution also not working since we have to load the data to s3.
    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/backup/cloud-backup/export/

    Can we have option for cloud backup like legacy backup in feature. We ate…

  3. Allow OpLog Backups in Atlas M0-M5 Shared-Tier clusters running on MongoDB v.5.x

    I have a backup process that is taking hourly dumps of the oplog on my production cluster running MongoDB v.5.0.6.

    It works fine using older versions of mongodump. However, when I update my tools to any version higher than 100.3.1 (100.4.x and above), my oplog backups fail with the following error:

    CMD : 2022-02-16T15:39:03.186-0500  Failed: error creating intents to dump: error counting local.oplog.rs: (Location40602) $collStats is only valid as the first stage in a pipeline.
    

    According to Atlas Support, this issue is limited to M0-M5 clusters and will need to be addressed by the Atlas development team.

    Can I ask…

  4. Need granular export details while exporting cloud backup to aws

    Right now we get the notification when the cloud backup is successfully exported to AWS S3.

    We need some granularity details in the notifications such as no of collections, size of collection/db, etc...

  6. when making backups don't have the banner say "deploying your changes"

    I was very confused recently when I logged in and saw the message "We are deploying your changes" despite nobody having made any changes to the cluster. Apparently what was happening was our scheduled backup was happening. This was a really confusing message to be seeing and resulted in a support request to work out what changes were being made.

    It would be much better if the message when a scheduled backup was happening was more clear about what is happening and less misleading.

  7. PITR should allow to choose which snapshot to use as base

    PITR mechanism does not allow the user to choose which snapshot to use as base before replaying the oplog. Given that Atlas does not validate the snapshots after they have been taken, the user ends up needing to setup their own validation process. That alone is not a problem. However, when one needs to use the PITR mechanism, not being able to select a previously validated snapshot may lead for PITR restores to use unvalidated snapshots.

    Either Atlas should enable, uppon choosing, the validation of snapshots right after they are taken, or allow the selection of valid snapshots (snapshots taken…

  8. Delete documents from backups

    Allow to delete documents from existing backups based on a query.

    When off-boarding customers, we sometime need to delete all of their data, including historical data from backups. Having the ability to clean up those backups, without having to restore, delete, and take a new backup, would be amazing.

  10. Monthly backup

    We would like to schedule our monthly backup and 1st Sunday of every month. Currently, this option is not available via the Atlas Console. It gives options like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th...etc of every month but not a specific day like Sunday or Monday. Please consider adding this option as it will be ideal for us to take our monthly backup on a Sunday when the database is not busy.

  12. API access over VPC

    We have a scheduled process which starts up a GCE instance with both an internal and external IP address. This runs a script which:

    • uses the Mongo API to get the id of the latest snapshot
    • uses the Mongo API to create a restore job with HTTP delivery
    • downloads the backup and perform some verification processes on the backup.

    Currently Mongo Cloud only allows access to the Mongo API and the HTTPS download over the public Internet. This requires adding Google Cloud IP addresses to both the API key IP Access List and the Network Access IP Access List. It…

  13. Option to take a Cloud Backup snapshot on destination cluster before restoring if Cloud Backup is enabled on it

    An option should be provided to allow a user to take a snapshot of the destination cluster of a Cloud Backup restore before the restore is performed so that they can easily "revert" the restore if they need to (by just requesting a restore using the snapshot that was taken just prior).

    It's possible to be in a situation where you've selected an incorrect snapshot for restoring or that you'd supplied the incorrect cluster for the snapshot to occur (this is less likely to happen in the UI than it is to happen programmatically via the API). Taking a snapshot…

  14. take snapshots off of the activity tab for maintenance.

    When I select the maintenance filter on the activity feed all the daily snapshots show up. I feel like there should be a backup screen that shows all the snapshots on the activity feed. this would make the maintenance screen more precise and relevant.

    . The maintenance screen should only show what software maintenance goes on the atlas clusters. This should also include all the release fixes. so, I do not have to go to your
    https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/release-notes/software releases page.

    It is very hard to tell what maintenance will be applied in a given time period. We have timeframes to apply…

  15. CronJob Live migration to second cluster in second project

    It would be great to have a feature that schedule live migration from a replica set of a PROD cluster to a DEV cluster directly in ATLAS.

    The plus of this solution are :
    - I dont need a dedicated server to do this job on my side (deploy it, configure it, script it, open network/port, etc ..)
    - I will not have to dump the whole databases from the cloud then uploading it afterwards (can be long)
    - Gain from outbound price in the cloud (more for you this one)

  16. Provide a default alert for projects using Cloud Backup

    Given how import backups are to an enterprise's business continuity plans, the set of common sense default alerts set by Atlas should include an alert for Cloud Backup on projects with Cloud Backup enabled. Either "CPS snapshot has been stuck in queue for 1 hour" or "Snapshot schedule feel behind by 1 hour" would suffice.

  18. Dynamically Calculate Timestamp Limits for Continuous Backup Restore (via OPLOG Timestamp)

    Currently, you can put in a OPLOG TIMESTAMP value that exceeds the maximum / minimum value for the Continuous Backup Time Window.

    For example, on the "Date & Time" tab of the "Point in Time Restore" menu, you are given a warning that specifies: "You can only restore to a specific point in time after MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM"

    This should be added to the "OPLOG TIMESTAMP" tab where a warning could be given such as "You can only restore to a specific point in time after XXXXXXXXXX" (Epoch time).

    As such, you should enforce data form validation so that a user…

  19. regular

    Restore snapshots to different clusters.

    I have a staging environment cluster whose data I'd like updated daily with anything new from my production cluster.

    Currently I do a dump and restore, but this is slow because it gets piped externally.

    Ideally I'd be able to restore a production snapshot to my staging cluster through a script running on a cron. Whether than is API or CLI doesn't matter.

  20. Add colors to Backup times

    Hi can I suggest a feature to the developers? Can the developers add colors to the Backup times? Because I have accidentally Backup an instance at 3:21 PM instead of a 3:21 AM I wanted. The colors will definitely help prevent such accidents from happening. It would also be nice if the developers can ensure that Backup times are not the same for AM and PM. Thanks!
