  1. Allow "Project Data Access Read Only" to retrieve restore links.

    Allow "Project Data Access Read Only" to retrieve restore links. Currently, to retrieve a restore link from an Atlas cluster you must be a Project Owner.

    In the current version to take the link to the snapshot we need to use Restore Jobs part of the API. Problem is that the same POST endpoint is used for the restore job which can do changes in the system and needs Owner level of the access and to generate link to the stream with the snapshot data. This second type of the job should not need so big access level as should…

  2. API Improvements - OpenAPI and more auth options

    The API should be documented with OpenAPI to allow better tooling.

    Ideally using the above OpenAPI spec you could auto generate a SDK or API client for popular languages.

    Lastly, the API should accept authentication options other than digest. There is very poor support for digest authentication by popular HTTP clients. I don't like trying to implement security protocols myself, as there is often some quirk I have not fully understood that ends up leaving me less secure than I hoped.

    In many questions online when searching for information about digest authentication, the person asking the question is asking about…

  3. Support multiple LDAP servers and TLS connection options

    When integrating my Atlas project with an LDAP service, we want to specify multiple LDAP servers rather than just one, and to specify options for the TLS connection such as allowing invalid hostnames. Both of these can be done in self-managed MongoDB Enterprise.

  5. Stitch - use the same function to resend confirmation as when initially signing up

    When signing up with Email/Pwd, one of the options is to have the confirmation run through a function.
    In that function, a call to an external email provider has been set up to use a template with a logo.

    However, the "token" & "tokenId" parameters provided in the link are only valid for 30'.

    This makes it likely for people to be too late to confirm their email address.

    When calling "resendConfirmationLink", an email with a new link will indeed be sent out, but this is the standard MongoDB email. This request is to have this "resend" use the same…

  6. Allow default settings on alerts on project/organization level

    It would be great if there was a way to set the default notification channels for alerts on the project and organization level.

    I was recently informed by the support team that there is no possible way of doing so, and that all alerts should be changed individually rather than for the whole project in one go.

  8. Terminate existing connections from IPs when removed from the whitelist

    When removing entries from an Atlas Project's IP whitelist, existing connections from those IPs are maintained, and thus those hosts can continue to perform operations until the connection times out. I'm aware such connections can be dropped by doing a Test Failover or pausing and unpausing the cluster, but in some scenarios this is not ideal if even possible. This also seems like a security gap: When access is revoked from a particular IP or CIDR block, any existing client connections originating from that IP or CIDR should be terminated and the hosts behind that IP or CIDR should be…

  9. Make use of lazyloading, and use dynamic frontend components

    The cloud atlas frontend is very buggy, and not usable at all, even with a fast connection takes minutes to load a page on click.

    https://cloud.mongodb.com/

    I think we are loading all the components and required data from server side.
    Instead we can simply load the core components, and show a user friendly spinner, that will stop spinning once content is loaded via an XHR request. This would be so much more user friendly, just showing them a spinner (maybe estimated time as well).

    Currently the page stays blank white, which is terrible UX.

  10. Dynamically Calculate Timestamp Limits for Continuous Backup Restore (via OPLOG Timestamp)

    Currently, you can put in a OPLOG TIMESTAMP value that exceeds the maximum / minimum value for the Continuous Backup Time Window.

    For example, on the "Date & Time" tab of the "Point in Time Restore" menu, you are given a warning that specifies: "You can only restore to a specific point in time after MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM"

    This should be added to the "OPLOG TIMESTAMP" tab where a warning could be given such as "You can only restore to a specific point in time after XXXXXXXXXX" (Epoch time).

    As such, you should enforce data form validation so that a user…

  11. Clarify Python vs PyMongo

    When connecting to a Atlas cluster and selecting to connect via a Application you can select to connect with what "Driver" where you can select "Python".

    For new users, they might think that the Python library (https://www.python.org/doc/versions/) is what is being referenced when in reality Atlas is referring to the PyMongo Driver.

    For clarity, alter the UI from "Python" to "PyMongo" or "Python (PyMongo)" or something similar to differentiate between Python and PyMongo.

  12. ) User A login inot Mongo Portal 2) He selects an organization and sends an invitation to User B 3) Now in the Activity Feed menu we can see

    1)User A login inot Mongo Portal
    2) He selects an organization and sends an invitation to User B
    3) Now in the Activity Feed menu we can see User B was invited to the organization
    4)Before the user B accepts the invitation , User A goes and deletes the pending invitation
    5)Nothing is shown in activity feed.

    This would help products which are integrating with MongoDB atlas to get the true status of pending invitations.

  13. Project Homepage / Ability to add descriptions to Atlas projects

    We have a lot of Atlas projects in our org, some are outdated, unused, orphaned, some important and used for production. It would be great to have a way to describe what each of them are for, who to contact for questions, etc.

    For example, when you switch to a project, you land on the project homepage that has the description right there, alongside an overview of how many clusters, users, last change, if whitelists are enabled etc. Even better if I can use Markdown or some other "rich" editing experience to create the description and add links, bullet points,…

  15. It would be useful to have an ability to pragmatically keep up to date with the latest prices in a RESTful fashion.

    Something like /offerings/aws/compute/M10 returns:

    {
    // some metadata about this pricing api.
    "prices": [

    {
    
    "priceId": "c800b6d9163b0db7",
    "region": "us-east-1",
    "charges": {
    "compute": {
    "price": 0.11,
    "interval": "hourly",
    "currency": "USD"
    },
    "storage-GB-month": {
    "price": 0.015,
    "interval": "hourly",
    "currency": "USD"
    },
    "backup-GB-month": {
    "price": 2.5000000001,
    "interval": "hourly",
    "currency": "USD"
    }
    }
    }

    ]
    }

    Use case: For those that use programs to calculate costs, this will reduce some of the guesswork involved by looking at cryptic documentation and invoices to calculate and forecast costs and be able to charge appropriately to match systems with demand.

    Amazon has similar API endpoints available:

    https://pricing.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/offers/v1.0/aws/AmazonEC2/current/us-east-1/index.json

  16. Add Option to Disable Federated Authentication Automatic Account Creation

    Based on the documentation it appears there is no option available to disable automatic account creation when Federated Authentication is used.

    The business case for disabling automatic account creation is to allow a limited set of users from the Identity Provider to have access to Atlas and the databases, while not allowing anyone with an account in the same domain to create an Atlas/Database account.

  17. Add support for arbiters

    We have a situation where we are required to build in an AWS region that only has two AZs (ca-central-1). In addition, there are no other AWS regions in the country (Canada). And due to our requirement around data sovereignty, we can't host this data set within a different country.

    Because of this, we can't guarantee our cluster will stay up if we lose a single AZ unless we put an arbiter in a 2nd region (since no data is copied to the arbiter). However, Atlas does not support arbiters currently. I know arbiters aren't ideal, but in this edge…

  19. Expose the `indexStats` action when creating custom roles in Atlas UI.

    The $indexStats aggregation pipeline allows user to get the statistics regarding the use of each index for the collection. This aggregation pipeline requires the indexStats diagnostic action.

    However, currently Atlas UI doesn't expose this action when creating custom roles. It would be nice to have this action listed in the "Collection Actions => Diagnostic Actions" list.
