  1. Propagation of NodeType via Prometheus metrics

    Context: we rely on Prometheus metrics for various systems in the company. The setup of clusters until now was pretty standard, so basically we had replica sets and sharded clusters with electable nodes only – clusters with three nodes per RS or shard which numbers correspond to <clustername>-<shardnumber>-<(00|01|02)>>. Now we have a fourth analytics node in the clusters, which out of convention seems to get the next incremented number 03.

    The thing is we cannot rely on convention and we need to have a way to distinguish the node types from Prometheus metrics (or at least from the Atlas API)…

  2. Request for Enabling Vendor-Metered Tagging on AWS Marketplace

    Hi Team,

    We are currently utilizing MongoDB services via the AWS Marketplace and have encountered an issue related to cost allocation tags.

    We have recently been working on improving our cost management and reporting processes within AWS.
    A key component of this effort involves leveraging AWS-generated cost allocation tags, particularly those prefixed with "aws:marketplace:isv:".
    However, upon review, we have noticed that these specific tags are not available or being applied to MongoDB services that we are using.

    The absence of vendor-metered tags for MongoDB on AWS Marketplace is hindering our ability to effectively track and allocate costs associated with your…

  3. Programatically disable/enable Auto indexing Serverless

    We have Serverless instances. We want to be able to programmatically (using atlas api and terraform resource) disable/enable
    mongo atlas to auto create suggested indexes for given mongo Serverless instance. Currently, it is enabled by default and can be disabled only by toggle in Mongo UI.

    With programmatically way we can easily disable/enable auto indexing on all our Serverless instances.

    This is important to us because we want to use only indexes that we create.

  4. Allow customization of where $merge creates the temp collection used when rehydrating data from Online Archive --> Atlas

    When you restore data from the Online Archive back into your Atlas cluster (aka "rehydrate") you need to use $merge within an aggregation pipeline. What isn't documented is that $merge will create a temporary collection in the same database you're rehydrating to, which requires that you have readWrite@<dbName> privileges so that the new collection can be created.

    For customers that operate on the "principle of least privilege," where you only grant literally exactly what is needed to accomplish database CRUD operations, the user would the more narrowly scoped "readWrite@<dbName>.<collName>" privilege granted to the user to scope the actions to only…

  5. Managed compact command

    Hi there

    MongoDB Atlas is a great service that offers out of the box a lot of cluster management command that will be otherwise tricky to perform without a great knowledge of mongodb.
    Something that lacks in my opinion is related to disk management and especially when it comes to reclaim free space.
    In my experience occured that for this scenarios:

    • Usage of online archive functionality to move huge amount of data
    • Changes in the behavior of the application that relies on the cluster
    • Or a bug in the application

    Some collections (or the oplog) are left with a huge…

  7. View billing information at project level

    I think it would be a good idea to be able to see billing/invoices at project level. So the project owner will only see the consumption of his projects.

    By giving project owners the "Organization Billing Viewer" role, we make it possible for them to see the billing for the whole organization. A new role for the project owner to view only their own project invoices would be nice.

  8. Ability to schedule "Hedged read" Turn on/off

    Customer experienced read latency during maintenance after sharding.
    Our guidance is to turn on "Hedged read" option.
    So the customer need to turn on/off "Hedged read" before/after maintenance, because turning on "hedged read" increase CPU usage that means server cost increasing.

    Currently "hedged read" on/off can be done by technical support from MongoDB but this feature is needed for operational efficiency and reducing human error.

  9. Atlas - Queue cluster pause request to perform it when it's possible

    It is impossible to pause a cluster that was recently resume.

    The documentation indicates it is a voluntary feature (https://www.mongodb.com/developer/products/atlas/pause-resume-atlas-clusters/) to allow the Atlas service to apply any pending changes or fixes to the cluster that may have accumulated while it was paused.

    I agree with this, but it cause a problem for automation (for example sometimes we launch a platform exclusively for testing purpose and then shut it down, it is complicated to add a delay for pausing the Atlas cluster) and even manually for example at the end of the day of work this requires either…

  10. Customize CPU threshold for Autoscaling

    Currently, to autoscale a cluster to the next tier, the "Average CPU Utilization must have exceeded 75% of available resources for the past hour."

    Problem:

    Some workloads remain near the 75% CPU threshold, given the nature of the workload. This can cause constant scaling events to occur which creates unnecessary noise.

    We don't want to turn autoscale off because this is a beneficial feature to keep enabled on the cluster.

    Solution:

    We want to be able to configure the CPU % threshold for cluster tier scaling. For example, rather than 75%, we'd like the option to set the threshold to…

  11. All Clusters permission for ORG level roles

    Today, for you to be able to use All Clusters you need to have permissions on each project, your user needs to be included in each project.

    When we use a federation, we generally don't grant permission for each project to a team of administrators. We grant ORGOWNER, for example. By doing this, we lose access to All Clusters. The idea was to include the permission to use All Clusters for project-level permissions that have permissions to read project resources, for example ORGOWNER or ORGREADONLY.

  13. Add usability to tags

    Atlas has the option to set tags to clusters. But - now what? They are just pieces of text floating around, but are completely useless.
    How about enabling to filter clusters in a project or even organization based on those tags? Split costs based on them? Query them with API calls? I have no use of those tags when they are just texts in the main page of Atlas...

  14. SimplifiedJson format

    Kafka source connector has an output format option of SimplifiedJson which is easier to parse by the downstream applications. Mongo utilities or any of the Atlas features do not support this as an output format as of now.

    Mongo does have canonical format output for mongo export which can be matched with kafka extended json format but it requires additional translation by the 3rd party applications.

    Is there a feature in place already to have atlas $out or mongo export or dump utilities to output data in Simplified json format? If not can this be looked into?

  15. A new role for security auditing purposes

    Currently MongoDB Atlas provides two read only roles at project level ("Project Read Only", and " Project Data Access Read Only").

    "Project Data Access Read Only" seems to allow access to the data also, while "Project Read Only" role does not allow access to the logs. (https://www.mongodb.com/docs/atlas/reference/user-roles/)

    For security officers (internal/external), they need to access to the logs (audit, access, etc) and also to review the configuration; but don't need access to the data.

    Therefore, I would like to request a new project level role for security officers with following features.
    - access to "Download Logs"
    - access…

  16. MongoAtlas Orga - Maximum number API keys exceeded

    We have detected in our organisation that the limit of API keys has been reached. This is currently affecting our project teams in terms of resource distribution, so we are asking for an increase in the quoter in the short term.

    Problem: We can't create keys and also delete them. The problem is that the key does not have an owner. Only org owner can delete this key. They did but this is only a reference deletion.

    Alerting: Condition for alerting is not there

    What we want to achieve:
    - Transparency for the org owners about what the limit level…

  17. Improved deletion protection against malicious users

    Currently, the only option of preventing malicious admin users from deleting a cluster with all its backups is to enable a backup compliance policy. However, this policy is quite the beast with complex processes and guarded by a single user account (which could then as well be the malicious one).

    It would be good to have some less impactful way of protection against malicious users.

    For example, when deleting a project in Google Cloud, an email is sent to all project owners and the project including all of its data can easily be restored within a period of 30 days.…

  18. Need Prior notification For The Scheduled maintenance

    We have noticed that our servers undergo scheduled maintenance, resulting in unexpected reboots. However, we lack information about the nature and purpose of these maintenance activities. We require a prior notification regarding scheduled minor/major maintenance to ensure that we can take proactive measures from our end. This would enable us to prepare appropriately and minimize any potential disruptions or issues caused by the maintenance.

  19. Disable Query Targeting alert notifications for $changeStream operations

    Change streams require scanning of the oplog and cannot make use of indexes, meaning that $changeStream operations frequently trigger Query Targeting: Scanned Objects / Returned alerts that cannot be actioned. It would be ideal to allow $changeStream operations to be filtered from the Query Targeting alerts.

  20. Ability to "Mass Kill" slow running queries

    Currently, Atlas has a "Kill Op" option which is useful to kill single long-running queries.

    When upgrading to MongoDB 7.0, we were faced with a situation where the Slot-Based Query Engine (SBE) was causing 1000s of queries to execute slowly, we wanted to kill them all, but it was more than a human could do by clicking "Kill Op" 1-by-1. Hence a "Mass Kill" feature which kills queries longer than X seconds (X is configurable) would have helped us greatly in an outage scenario. We ultimately rebooted our cluster to kill queries, then manually implemented a script which did this…
