  1. Having tag/label in the Atlas UI

    Hello,

    The ATLAS portal used to view our organizations, projects, deployments, etc... does not offer a tag/label functionality at the visual interface level.

    This is problematic because when managing multiple organizations, projects, and deployments. We need to be able to put metadata on these objects/components (organization, project, deployment, user, custom group, API Key, Network address) in order to properly manage our inventory.

    In Azure, this notion of "tag" is very useful and can be used on all types of components (See attached image which presents tags that we have on an Azure component used for encryption at rest).

    We would…

  2. Add autoExport snapshot to AWS S3 Bucket on mongodbatlas_cloud_backup_schedule

    By company policy, we have to export our snapshots automatically to an AWS S3 Bucket.

    I started following https://www.mongodb.com/docs/atlas/backup/cloud-backup/export/ and implemented on terraform due to the high number of projects, and clusters that we need to backup.

    However, looks like the terraform provider doesn't support "autoExportEnabled" from https://www.mongodb.com/docs/atlas/reference/api/cloud-backup/schedule/modify-one-schedule/ on https://registry.terraform.io/providers/mongodb/mongodbatlas/latest/docs/resources/cloud_backup_schedule terraform resource.

    Best regards,
    Wagner Sartori Junior

  4. Shared Clusters upgrade to MongoDB 6.0+

    Currently MongoDB 6.0.1 is only available in dedicated clusters (M10+) and in serverless clusters.

    We need to use MongoDB 6.0.1 or higher in the shared cluster (M0/M2/M5).

    I understand that this should be in the roadmap anyway, but getting it sooner than later would be great.

  6. Return private endpoints for peered network from mongo-db prometheus discovery endpoint

    We are using VPC peering to connect with Mongo Atlas. With the recent account about, prometheus integration. We added scrape config to mongo-db discovery API. However, scraping times out. Upon checking further it is found that discovery API returns public endpoints not private ones. Hence connection is failing. Is there a way that discovery API can send private endpoints.

  7. Add Prometheus as a Supported Third-Party Integration Settings type

    Great work releasing the new Prometheus Integration functionality!

    Ideally, we'd like to use Terraform to codify our interface with the Prometheus Integration, similar to how we leverage the existing Third-Party Integration Settings types.

  8. To not to delete the most recent backup when the DB is deleted

    After a cluster is terminated in MongoDB Atlas, the backups disappear with it. It will be good to preserve the most recent backup of this database. Otherwise, there is no point to have backup if the DB cannot be recover after accidental delete

  9. Support tags on Mongo projects

    I support multiple orgs and projects falling under my enterprise. I'd like the ability to tag projects using a key value pair - similar to GCP, Azure, AWS. Tags will help us organise and understand what's running in our projects.

    Basic functionality that operates on tags will be helpful like filtering projects and enhanced billing that can group costs based on a tag would be beneficial.

    Right now, we need to add cost metadata to the project name, which is the only place where we can do so.

    I'm happy to share that this capability is now available in Atlas. You can use the Admin API or Atlas UI to add tags to new or existing projects. This functionality will be extended to Terraform and the Atlas CLI in the near future.

  10. Configure --jsonFormat=canonical flag in export policy.

    JSON does not support all data types that are available in BSON. This means that when using JSON there will be a so called "loss of fidelity" of the information.
    However, using the --jsonFormat=canonical flag in a mongoexport command will preserve all available BSON data types, so the "loss of fidelity" issue can be completely avoided.

    Now we plan to export our cloud backups to an AWS S3 bucket. To do this, we would like to set up an export policy to automatically export the snapshots. We could already do this via the API. However, the data is output in…

  12. Comprehensive Backup Ransomware Protection

    MongoDB Atlas needs a modern, comprehensive, secure ransomware protection strategy for its customers. Simply providing the ability to backup a database, and encrypt that database with "bring your own key" is not enough. Below I highlight what I believe are key components of a comprehensive strategy (or at least a good start).

    Immutable and Verifiable Backups

    Once backups are created, Atlas should provide a facility to ensure the backup remains immutable. Further, Atlas should provide verification that a backup continues to be untouched / unmodified for its entire lifecycle.

    Deletion Protection

    Atlas should provide enhanced deletion protection for backups. Any…

    Hello,

    I am pleased to announce that we have released our backup feature called Backup Compliance Policy, that protects your backups from being deleted by any user, ensuring WORM and full immutability (can not be edited/modified or deleted) for backups automatically in Atlas.


    Backup Compliance Policy allows organizations to configure a project-level policy to prevent the deletion of backups before a predefined period, guarantee all clusters have backup enabled, ensure that all clusters have a minimum backup retention and schedule policy in place, and more.


    With these controls, you can more easily satisfy data protection requirements (e.g., AppJ, DORA, immutable / WORM backups, etc.) without the need for manual processes.


    Please note that the Backup Compliance Policy can not be disabled without MongoDB support once enabled so please make sure to read our documentation thoroughly before enabling.


    In addition to Backup Compliance Policy, organizations can also utilize our multi-region

  13. Allow to assign API Key to Project via Terraform by referencing public key

    Currently you can only assign an API Key to an Atlas Project via Terraform by referencing the ID of the API Key. Unfortunately, the ID is not exposed through the UI, only through the Atlas API. This is not very ideal for customers/users that are creating API Keys through the UI.

    Adding support for referencing the API Key in Terraform via the public key instead of the ID would fix this. Or alternatively, exposing the API Key ID in Atlas.

  14. killop

    I have read the other two suggestions on providing more killOp() and read Andrew's comment on the difficulties in the medium term.

    I just watched a situation where a primary became unresponsive and the queues piled up. The solution was to cause an election, but the dba wanted to kill operations by user (the application user) and couldn't.

    It would be nice to have something more than the real-time panel, which in this situation had become unresponsive as well so it was no use, such as a DBA console where an authorized dba could kill operations started by other users.

    I have been supporting multiple projects/clusters with databases from different business units.

    I'd like the ability to tag databases using a key value pair - similar to GCP, Azure, AWS. Tags will help us organise and understand what's running in our clusters and ensuring a more efficient/granular billing process.

  19. Create Organization using API or terraform in Atlas

    I support multiple business units (BU) within our company. Each BU uses multiple applications & teams. In order to offer service in Atlas, through automation, there is no option in Atlas to create/ delete Organization dynamically. It allows managing Projects and below.

    It will be good to add this feature to create/ delete Organization dynamically.

    It will also be good to manage, ie to create different Accounts dynamically (like AWS/GCP).

    This will help to have separate account & organization, for each BU to manage billing and manage the consumption, through automation.

    Thanks

  20. Restore snapshots on s3 back to atlas cluster

    Currently we store Atlas snapshots on S3 for D.R purposes as well as for compliance reasons.

    There was a scenario where an instance was deleted by mistake, and once an instance is deleted all of the atlas managed backup snapshots were gone. In order to restore the Atlas instance we had to do the following:

    1) create a new atlas instance

    2) restore the snapshot from s3 to a temporary mongodb database and then do a dump and restore in order to migrate the data back into the new atlas instance.

    This is a time-consuming process, so if there is…

    Hello,


    I would like to update everyone on some changes we have made over the last couple of quarters that resolves multiple parts of the overall goal here, in addition to the methods Ben outlined in the past


    First, is Import Archive from S3 in Atlas. This walks you through how to import an archive from S3 back into Atlas.


    In addition to this we now have other protections around cluster and backup deletion protection to protect against human error but also to ensure you can comply with various requirements automatically in Atlas. 


    You now have an option to retain all backups when terminating an M10+ cluster.

    - When you terminated a cluster through the Atlas Ui, on the termination confirmation pop up, you will now see an additional toggle labeled "Keep existing snapshots after termination". If you select this option when terminating your cluster, all of your…
