  1. Add option to create project without alerts

    Currently a project is created with a set of default alerts. We need to customize these but we can only add new alerts via terraform. It would be helpful if there was a boolean flag in the mongodbatlas_project resource to disable default alert creation

  2. 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…

  3. 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!

  4. Make BI Connector Settings Permanent

    Allow the "SET GLOBAL mongodbmaxvarcharlength = n" to be permanent after a Mongosqld restart. Currently, the setting is ephmeral and must be set everytime the mongosqld daemon is restarted. Currently, our production environment mongosqld can restart without our knowledge at anytime. This results in the mongodbmaxvarharlength variable being reset to zero, which can lead to a production outage. Is there anyway this can be automated, maybe through database trigger?

  5. Add resource to allow attachment of roles to mongodbatlas_cloud_provider_access

    The need to do two applies to completely configure the mongodbatlas_cloud_provider_access resource should have never seen the light of day. I would like to see an additional resource that could attach a role to a mongodbatlas_cloud_provider_access after it has been created. Then you could use the attributes in the mongodbatlas_cloud_provider_access resource to create the role, then attach the role to it using the access_role_attachment resource.

  6. 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.)

  7. AWS EBS gp3 Volumes

    Please add support for the newly announced and already generally available AWS EBS feature. [1]

    The top capability is: "The new gp3 volumes deliver a baseline performance of 3,000 IOPS and 125 MB/s at any volume size. Customers looking for higher performance can scale up to 16,000 IOPS and 1,000 MB/s for an additional fee." [2]

    That basically means decoupling storage performance from storage size.
    It would eliminate all our IOPS pain as 3000k is more than enough for our usecase. Currently, we are slightly overprovisioning storage size in order to guarantee minimal IOPS performance.

  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 %

  13. Atlas API Enhancements

    Since we want to automate the user (de)provisioning for organizations and projects, we would like to see the following API enhancements:

    Please enhance the Mongo Atlas API for the following functionalities:
    - invite (existing mongo) user to organization (currently not possible)
    - remove user from organization
    - get invitation status from user
    - cancel invitation for user

    Thank you

  14. 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…

  15. 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:

  16. MongoDB Atlas Provider for AWS CDK

    We use AWS CDK to deploy our infrastructure. Currently there is only a Terraform provider available to automate the MongoDB Atlas deployment. We would like to have such a provider also for AWS CDK.

    In a first step this provider should support:
    - mongodbatlascluster create, edit and delete clusters
    - mongodbatlas
    databaseUser create and remove users

    Later full feature set like in Terraform should be supported.

    Currently we use a self written provider. But this has hundreds of lines of code and means a lot of maintenance effort. For our teams this additional effort can be a reason to…

  17. TTL which applies to archived files as well

    Currently there is no way of managing an online archive besides nuking the entire collection. This means that the collection can only grow, so costs will continue to climb.

    The TTL index can already be used to automatically delete documents from your database. If this could be expanded to also delete files which have been archived, there is an easy and built-in way of maintaining an archive in size.

  18. 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.

  19. Increase monitoring metrics resolution retention time on views of 1min & 5mins

    The speed at which usable monitoring metrics data (1m, 5m) is purged and reduced to 1hr is way too quick.

    After 1hr, the ability to analyze these metrics that are crucial to investigating a performance issue were lost and hindered the root cause analysis.

    I would suggest that 1m or at least 5m resolution metrics be retained for at least a week before being purged.

  20. OCSP stapling support for Atlas Clusters

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? As a user (MongoDB Driver) you'd like to check revocation status of X.509 certificate via TLS Certificate Status Request extension (also known as OCSP stapling) instead of doing outgoing HTTP connection to OCSP endpoint from a user (MongoDB Driver) side.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) [MongoDB Server v. 4.4.X introduces OCSP stapling functionality](https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/release-notes/4.4/index.html#ocsp), however OCSP stapling is not enabled on Atlas Clusters with MongoDB Server v. 4.4.X.
