  1. 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.

  3. allow control of pagerduty urgency (currently high) so that alerts can be managed better

    Some alerts you need to know about immediately, others, the next working day will suffice. Allowing the user to set the urgency for each alert will allow a greater control over pager fatigue without having to bypass PagerDuty

  4. Display better Slack notifications

    Currently, MongoDB Atlas Slack integration only send RAW text.

    For easier reading, it would be nice (if not a must have) to leverage Slack notification format to have colors that represent at least the state of an alert.

    Here is a suggestion from common things we can see in other tools:
    * alert.open: Red
    * alert.close: Green
    * alert.update: Yellow
    * alert.acknowledge: Grey
    * alert.cancel: Brown
    * alert.inform: Blue

    Bonus: Leverage Slack App capabilities and have a / command to acknowledge an alert directly from Slack.

  5. 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.

  6. Using REGEX to exclude node from Alerts

    Please exclude specific node(s) from Alerts using REGEX with a negative lookahead/ exclusion (instead of an inclusion matcher on hostnames in a replica set).

  7. Be able to see the replica set member states via MongoDB Atlas on a Datadog dashboard and get alerts if it changes

    It doesn't look like these health metrics are available for the Atlas product. Would love to be able to use the metric mongodb.replset.health in MongoDB Atlas for both monitoring and alerting so that we can see the replica set member state on a dashboard as well as get alerted if it changes.

  8. 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.

  9. The Atlas Disk IOPs Read/Write alerts for data/index/journal partitions should be combined & not reference partitions.

    The current Atlas Disk IOPs Read/Write alerts are for data/index/journal partitions.
    However, Atlas does not use seperate partitions for data/index/journal so it can be misleading to rely on the alert message.

    The Atlas Disk IOPs Read/Write alerts for data/index/journal partitions should be combined & not reference partitions.
    Alerts like:
    Host - of any type - Disk write IOPS
    Host - of any type - Disk read IOPS

  12. Have the capability to manage contact details for Atlas-level 'Teams'

    There should be a capability to manage/assign contact details (such as email) at the Atlas level, to the created organizational 'Teams' (such as assigning a team distro email address), so that alerting can be streamlined, instead of sending out separate emails to each and every member of the team.

  13. Profiler output is confusing

    Not so much a feature perhaps as a bug, but it seems that in the profiler page, the chart changes with the time window of interest, e.g. from 24hr to 6 hr or 1hr, but the listing of the namespaces underneath does not. So suppose you think you've fixed an issue and want to check 4 hours later. The chart seems to indicate things are ok, but the namespace table is actually confusing in this case. When you click on an item in a listed namespace (i.e. collection), it goes into the detail view and that one does conform to…

  14. Atlas auto-scaling configurable alerts

    It would be useful, and contribute to a complete alert experience, to have auto-scaling event alerts configurable in project alerts. Users should be able to send alerts to their target system of choice, and prevent numerous alerts to specific users.

    Currently auto-scaling alerts are only emails to project members (as per the following https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/cluster-autoscaling/#acknowledge-auto-scaling-events).

    Examples of configurable alerts:
    - Scale-up unsuccessful due to max cluster-tier too low -> change email recipient of these alerts
    - Scale-up event has occurred -> send alert via SMS and Slack.

  15. Support node type or node tags as condition in MongoDB Atlas Alert

    Currently, the MongoDB Atlas does not support the node types [1] or node tags [2] as the condition in Atlas alerts. That would be super inconvenient for the following scenarios.

    Scenario 1: If the user wants to create an alert to monitor the specific node type, such as READ_ONLY node or ANALYTICS nodes, there is no convenient way to achieve it. The current approach must set up the alert by using the hardcode hostname.

    Scenario 2: If the user has some electable nodes and a analytics node in a cluster, and wants to focus on monitoring the electable nodes (workload),…

  16. Active link on closed alerts

    Currently closed alerts are just a simple text card unlike open alert which does have links. This functionality should be available in closed alert as well.

  17. Don't cut alert names

    This is very hard to figure out what these alert mean, I have to go to the documentation and match them somehow, but it also looks like the documentation is not up to date.

  18. Include Human-Friendly Cluster Names in Alert Notifications

    Please include the human-friendly cluster/host names in Monitoring Alert Notifications (e.g. email, PagerDuty, etc) in addition to, or instead of, the less clear internal cluster/hostnames (i.e. atlas-abcdef-shard-0).

  19. Alerts Messaging Customization

    At the moment, it appears one cannot customize the messaging or subject line of the alerts. This makes it difficult to categorize the alerts. For instance, we would like to categorize alerts into different severity levels, such that severity level will help determine the level of attention that is paid to the alerts when they trigger. If it is possible to prefix or append some customization code and message to either the subject line and/or actual message, then a monitoring team can use the custom code/message to determine the severity or category of the alert when it triggers.
    Some alerts…

  20. Billing Alerts Improvement

    We find the conditions for billing alerts to be very limited. We were hoping we would be able to setup an alert that triggers when a certain threshold of our total subscription amount has been used for better monitoring. For example, >= 75% of the total subscription amount is used.
