  2. Encryption at rest with our own keys - Manage alert and shutdown parameters

    It would be interesting to improve the encryption at rest feature in order to be able to define the alert parameters in case of unavailability of the key as well as the delay before a Replica Set fails.

    for example. I want to be alerted if my key is not available x times in the last 10 minutes and stop the replica game after 60 minutes if the situation is not resolved. This makes it possible for the support team to take corrective action without causing downtime.

  3. Option to edit maintenance alerts via API

    Maintenance alerts are created automatically when a maintenance window is set and these alerts by default send an email to the project owner.

    If you want something different in those alerts (Slack notification, PagerDuty, etc.), having to go one by one when you have multiple clusters is not practical, lot of manual interaction for a managed service.

    The goal of this request is to let configure/edit/create these alerts using the API, so it can be later included in Terraform.

  4. Alerts on Configuration Changes

    It would be nice to have an alert configurable when any change is made to the cluster configuration. It helps with compliance that there is knowledge of such changes without having to manually search and activity feed.

  5. Add alert setting for cluster being auto-scaled up or down

    Hi,

    I'd like to set up a slack hook to our #emergency room when the cluster is being automatically scaled up/down.

    In the project settings in the Alerts / Alert Settings section there are ways how to email/slack notify on some events: maintenance events, index suggestions or even Disk I/O % utilization and may more...

    Though somehow I'm unable to modify the behaviour when the cluster is auto-scaled up due to high CPU/RAM usage for 1 hour.

    Would love to see this alert type in the settings among the rest of other alerts.

  7. Allow user provided alert templating for Atlas alerts

    I want to have the ability to provide their own templatized text for alerts. Often I may want to provide specific instructions to operations personnel for each alert type, or to provide links to relevant internal runbooks.

    Other systems such as Datadog and PagerDuty provide this kind of capability.

  8. Mongo DB alerts for latest version or release

    Automatic alerts from Mongo DB Team for the latest releases / versions available similar to the EOL(End of Life) alerts.
    This helps in planning the changes and upgrades reducing the manual effort on searching for latest versions.

  9. Custom templates of Alerts to deploy across many projects within an organization

    When I make a new project, I don’t want to have to redeploy the same set of Alerts I've already configured for another project.

    I want to be able to create custom templates/policies of Alerts at the organization-level that can be applied to projects within the organization. This template should be editable at the project-level after it is inherited to allow unique Alert configuration if a project requires.

    These templates should keep track of all edits that I make to default Alerts and new ones that I configure, including threshold values and notification settings.

  10. Multiple Email address for alerting

    In alertconfiguration, change the emailaddress argument in "notification" block from "string" to "list(string)".
    Main goal here is to allow multiple alert emails like it's possible in the portal.

  11. Better alert trigger for index suggestions

    The current alert trigger for index suggestion is described here: https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/alert-conditions/#host-alerts

    "If the query targeting ratio for a host consistently exceeds 10,000 for a period of 10 minutes, Performance Advisor checks the host for inefficient queries and possible indexes to improve performance."

    Firstly we have issues with alerts constantly going on and off every few minutes if the query ratio is fluctuating around the 10k mark.

    Secondly, we often do not get alerts for worthwhile index suggestions. We run a multi-tenant platform. We have big clusters with hundreds of databases/tenants and thousands of collections. A huge amount of our queries…

  12. Pending updates alerts

    I'd like to be able to have alerts for all those databases that are using a version that is not the latest major version available.

    This will help to be more proactive so that updates can be planned in advance without the need to manually review the available versions from time to time. It will also help in the implementation of security controls such as SOC2.

  14. AWS CMK rotation alert should be changed from 90 to 365 days

    Originates from https://github.com/mongodb/terraform-provider-mongodbatlas/issues/805#issuecomment-1241569555

    Short: The created default alert for encryption key rotation is configured to 90 days, also when using AWS KMS CMK. The automatic rotation for CMK is 365 on AWS side. So, I would vote for creating the default alert with 365 days, when AWS KMS CMK is selected.

    Otherwise we get false alerts, as we rely on the automatic rotation of AWS KMS.

  15. Ability to create a custom alert based on a query run at configurable interval.

    There is currently no way to set up an Alert based on the results of a query directly in Atlas.
    One can achieve this functionality using realm and triggers but that can be difficult.

  16. Configure Alert "Insufficient disk space to support rebuilding search indexes" via API

    Currently, it's not possible to configure the alert "Insufficient disk space to support rebuilding search indexes" via API (and therefor also not by terraform).

    When setting the respective eventTypeName "HOSTDISKSPACEINSUFFICIENTFORSEARCHINDEX_REBUILD"

    I get the following response:

    400
    request "INVALIDENUMVALUE"
    An invalid enumeration value HOSTDISKSPACEINSUFFICIENTFORSEARCHINDEX_REBUILD was specified.

    The API should support this (and any other alerts configurable by the UI).

  17. Having the alert "Acknowledge for" option actually do acknowledge the alert for the specified time period

    I gathered that Atlas alerts are design to retrigger once the condition is met. Then what does acknowledge mean in that case when providing any timeframe like forever? To me acknowledging an alert forever means that the alert would never to raise again.

    In our case the number of connections for one cluster out of many goes slightly over the threshold, then shortly thereafter, goes below the threshold . The condition is 'flapping'. I know that this connection count condition is not leading to the number of connections to be exceeded. But, I don't want to ignore that alerts for…

  19. provide more details on the replica set elected a new primary

    today the details on this event are very low and have only the replica set name which is not enough, can you also add the correlated cluster name to the exposed details?
    more over if this is something that can be monitored by the metrics going to Datadog?

  20. Show overlapping Alert configurations between different scopes

    I wish there was a way to show an overlapping alert configuration. When alerts are defined on a global level but overridden on a project level, it is very hard to tell if something was overridden.
