  1. Granular Permissions

    Right now Mongo Atlas allows you to assign two types of roles to all the users: Organization and Project, and for each set it gives you some predefined roles.

    The problem with this is you can't have any kind of granular control of what permission is assigned to each user. (e.g. to allow a user to create a trigger through Mongo Stitch it needs the Project Owner role).

    This is a major setback as I'm giving my coworkers more access than needed.

    A good solution would be to have something like the database access control in this part so we…

  2. Atlas backup to second region

    We would like the option to have our Atlas backups automatically copied to a 2nd region to support our DR initiative. I realize we could create a live database node in a 2nd region, but that is more costly and complex. Having the backup sync to another region that we can restore off of in case the primary region fails would be simpler and more cost effective.

    Is this something that is on your roadmap, and if so, when will it be released?

    Thanks!

  3. Force restart of unhealthy node

    Right now, there's a "test failover" option, which shuts down the primary and forces an election. However, the option is only available if the cluster is in a healthy state.

    If, for whatever reason, the cluster is unhealthy, it's impossible to manually restart the primary. It should be possible to force an election in an unhealthy state. Often, this is all that is required to get back into a healthy state (e.g. if the primary is in a CPU burning loop that was caused by an unexpected write pattern that has stopped.)

  6. Make AWS EBS Burst Balance metrics available in Atlas UI

    Make EBS Burst Balance Metrics available within the Atlas UI. Currently it is not easy to 100% understand how much burst credits are being used and whether they have actually been depleted.

    You can infer it from the IOPS metrics going above baseline IOPS and then suddenly dropping down but would be better to see the balance itself to be 100% sure. This will save support requests to do so.

  7. Possibility to change 'frequency_type' of snapshot backup policy item via Terraform

    Hi,

    I’m facing an issue about Snapshot Backup Policy creation/modification via Terraform ( FYI, I open a case to the support of MongoDB  https://support.mongodb.com/case/00668262). Let me explain :

    When I want to create a MongoAtlas Cluster via terraform, I want to apply a custom Snahsphot Backup Policy with ONLY 2 items during the creation of the cluster :
    N° Item Frequency type Frequency Retention
    0 Daily 1 7 Days
    1 Weekly 1 (Saturday) 4 weeks

    However, during the creation of the mongo atlas cluster, I can see an error
    Error: Error applying plan:

    1 error occurred:

    * module.cluster_contrib.module.dpjmongoatlas.module.tfmodule-gcp-mongo-atlas-cluster.mongodbatlas_cloud_provider_snapshot_backup_policy.snapshot_backup:

  8. option to create a final snapshot before deleting a cluster

    Today when an Atlas cluster is deleted, all backups/snapshots of this cluster are deleted along with it.

    This is especially an issue when working with automation tools like terraform, where a cluster can be deleted by accident easily.

    In AWS Aurora Postgres, for example, there is an option to create a "final snapshot" before deleting the cluster.

    If this option is enabled for a cluster, whenever a user triggers the deletion of the cluster (either manually, via API, or any other method), a final snapshot will be created, before the cluster is deleted.

    This final snapshot is then available independently…

  9. Export metrics to Prometheus

    Currently there is only a community supported Prometheus integration (exporter) available which polls db.serverStatus() and doesn't include as much metrics as the Atlas UI/API provides. A similar integration as with New Relic and Datadog would help many customers that are using Prometheus and Grafana for monitoring.

  10. Add alerts on disk IOPS and CPU IOWAIT %

    To help catch heavy disk workloads before they become problematic, it would be great to have alerts on:
    - disk IOPS percentage utilization for disks without burstable IOPS
    - burst credit utilization for disks with burstable IOPS
    - CPU IOWAIT %

  11. Project teams

    Hello,

    I think it would be a good idea to have team management at project level.
    We have many projects and members in our Atlas account.
    I'm a organization owner. The people in my organization use the Altas service. I create
    a project for them and give my colleagues the project owner authorizations.

    Project owners can invite other members. This is good. But it's a little inconsistent that
    they are not able to create groups or teams within their projects They have to manage the permissions for each member separately.

    We can't use organization teams, because they are located at…

  13. Live Migrate Individual Namespaces

    Mongomirror allows you to migrate particular databases or collections using the --includeDB and --includeNamespace parameters:

    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/mongomirror/#cmdoption-includedb
    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/mongomirror/#cmdoption-includenamespace

    It would be helpful if Live Migrate allowed for use of these options as well to migrate subsets of data, instead of only migrating an entire cluster.

  14. Allow to set teams to users by Federated Authentication

    When an Atlas User logs in by a Federated Authentication (like Okta) there is only a "Default User Role" to control its permission, so all users get the same role. And after that, we must manually add to teams, or change their roles. It would be better to allow the IdP to set (and update) the groups/teams for each user automatically.

  15. Allow an "Any Database" option for actions in custom roles

    Much like built-in roles have the ability to target all databases/any database, it would be ideal if collection actions could also target any database. Similarly to how, when adding collection actions to a custom role, if you leave the "collection" field blank, it applies to all collections in the specified DB, it would be great if you could leave the "database" field blank too (or add an "any database" option) and have the actions associated with the role be allowed on any database.

    This feature gap creates unnecessary maintenance overhead for clusters with large numbers of databases. This is particularly…

  16. Allow customer encryption key validation time interval

    Currently, Atlas has a 15 minute interval where it checks access to remotely stored Customer Managed Encryption keys for the custom encryption at rest feature.

    This value is not changeable, and it implies a problem: access to encryption keys can be lost for longer periods than 15 minutes without that implying that the key has been invalidated by the customer.

    A perfect example of this was the recent Azure AD global outage that prevented all authentication to the Azure platform for about 3 hours (complete outage description: https://app.azure.com/h/SM79-F88/691d78). While the key used for one of our clusters was not…

  17. 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).

  18. Multitenancy of the billing section in MongoDB Atlas

    Hi MongoDB team,

    as the organization owner I don't want that my organizational members (developers, project owners etc.) have access to the billing section. Currently every member (independent on the granted rights) has the rights to see the complete billing section and can see the whole invoice incl. the names of the projects. This isn't acceptable regarding compliance because we are working together with external companies and their colleagues shouldn't have the ability to see all invoices.

    Please make the billing section of MongoDB Atlas available to handle multitenancy - so that only the organization owner can see the billing…

  19. Implement conditional DNS forwarders in Atlas to support internal LDAP servers

    When a customer wants to use their private LDAP server in Atlas, they currently need to either expose their name via public DNS or use an internal CA and an IP address. For some customers these scenarios are suboptimal since they want to keep their infrastructure details private, even at DNS layer.

    The proposed solution is to use the Conditional DNS forwarders in all cloud providers supported by Atlas, so the requests to resolve a private DNS zone (specified by the customer) will be forwarded to the listed DNS servers across the VPC peering connection while all other (public) DNS…

  20. Live Migrate modal: Allow users to point and click to select another Atlas source cluster

    It is often practical to Live Migrate from one Atlas cluster to another Atlas cluster (e.g. to create another staging environment if backups are not enabled on the source, or migrate a production/staging environment to another dedicated project with minimal downtime).

    Currently, the Live Migrate modal requires connection details from the source cluster, including the hostname of the primary, port, etc. Validation will fail if there are typos/errors in these inputs.

    It would be easier to have a point-and-click option to "Migrate from another Atlas cluster" -- it could be a drop-down menu with names of other Atlas clusters in…
