  1. Add eventTypeName for Maintenance Windows in alertConfigs response

    After adding a maintenance window to an Atlas project, the alertConfigs returns additional entries that do not include an eventTypeName field, it seems that these additional entries relate to the maintenance window but it's not clear:

    {

    "created" : "2020-02-28T16:04:18Z",
    
    "enabled" : true,
    "groupId" : "***",
    "id" : "***",
    "links" : [ {
    &quot;href&quot; : &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://cloud.mongodb.com/api/public/v1.0/groups/***/alertConfigs/5e593a02559f765dca07acfe&quot;">https://cloud.mongodb.com/api/public/v1.0/groups/***/alertConfigs/5e593a02559f765dca07acfe&quot;</a>,
    &quot;rel&quot; : &quot;self&quot;
    } ],
    &quot;matchers&quot; : [ ],
    &quot;notifications&quot; : [ {
    &quot;delayMin&quot; : 0,
    &quot;emailEnabled&quot; : true,
    &quot;intervalMin&quot; : 60,
    &quot;roles&quot; : [ &quot;GROUP_OWNER&quot; ],
    &quot;smsEnabled&quot; : false,
    &quot;typeName&quot; : &quot;GROUP&quot;
    } ],
    &quot;updated&quot; : &quot;2020-02-28T16:04:18Z&quot;

    }, {

  3. Add more details on backup policy changes in Atlas activity feed

    In Atlas when you search for "Cloud provider snapshot schedule updated for cluster" in the project's Activity page, it doesn't provide any details on schedule policy changes information, the customer have to call the snapshot schedule API to get the policy schedule change information. However, the API call output still doesn't have any history change information for audit purpose.

    Please consider add that information to the Atlas activity feed page.

  6. Heroku Atlas Plugin

    Since mongo lab https://docs.mlab.com/mlab-to-atlas/ is acquired by mongo, and migration to Atlas is recommended.

    We need Heroku Plugin for mongo Atlas, as promised on https://docs.mlab.com/mlab-to-atlas/ page FAQ section.

    My company is planning some big projects on heroku and having a plugin would make our lives much easier.

    Is there any ETA on this plugin delivery date?

    Since the set goal of migrating mongo lab users to Atlas is start of 2020 Heroku mongo lab users should have easy option to do it soon.

  7. Missing time zone name

    I was trying to Select my country's timezone but I could not find it. Namibia's timezone is Africa/Windhoek +2 GMT or otherwise Central Africa Time +2 GMT after it abolished the Daylight savings time in 2017. However, none of the options are available for timezone selection when setting cloud preferences.

    Please note I can not use another country's timezone even if they are similar.

  8. Add Support for AD/LDAP Token Groups

    This is a request to add support for the Token Groups LDAP attribute included in Active Directory’s LDAP implementation:

       <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/adschema/a-tokengroups">https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/adschema/a-tokengroups</a>
    

    Currently Atlas/Mongo only supports looking up group membership from queries against the user object in LDAP (typically by looking at the “memberOf” attribute). This attribute does not include groups to which a user is a member via nested groups (being in a group that is also a member of another group). An LDAP filter can be added to the user group lookup which uses recursive filters to find all groups, however, that approach has the following problems:

  10. Update your API to support GraphQL

    The current REST API requires many queries to get all of the information needed for a simple thing. For example, if I want to pull logs for a cluster called My-Cluster in a project called My-Project, I need to....


    • GET the list of projects from the organization

    • Parse the result to locate the Project ID for My-Project

    • GET the list of clusters in My-Project

    • Parse the result to locate the cluster nodes that I need to grab logs for

    • For each node in the cluster:

      • GET the log(s) for that node



    At least the first four steps described here could…

  11. Allow to configure `maxTimeMS` for commands executed from Data Explorer

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Allow to configure maxTimeMS for commands executed from Data Explorer.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) A) Data Explorer cannot work with [views](https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/views/index.html) in case if the view is taking >15000 ms to be load. Data Explorer cannot work with [find](https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/command/find/index.html) in case if that find operation is taking >15000 ms to be completed.

  13. example database sample_mflix.movies.title is not always string

    I tried to use the sample_mflix sample database to check MongoDB drivers of C#, how can I use them. The first idea was to download the movies into a statically typed classes, but the provider threw cannot cast int to string exception.

    Long story short. The problem was that whenever the title of a movie was a number (like spartan 300), the sample database loaded a number instead of a string.

    Can we change it so the initial load of the database contains only string titles?

  14. Have a page that describes different commands necessary to mongodump a local database and transfer that to atlas. Describe only that

    Have a page that describes different commands necessary to mongodump a local database and transfer that to atlas. Don't include descriptions of all the options for whatever commands are necessary to do that, only write what is precisely necessary to do that. Include an example like the following:

    Database name: testDatabase Host address: testAddress Username: testName
    Password: testPass

    mongodump --db=testDatabase

    mongorestore --host testAddress --username testName --password testPass --authenticationDatabase admin --db testDatabase ./testDatabase

    END OF EXAMPLE

    I don't know what commands actually work to create a file that can be uploaded to an Atlas cluster because the documentation doesn't have a…

  15. Expose more data via the Project Events Atlas API: database user addition

    The project events API (described at https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/events-projects-get-one/)
    returns less fields that presented in the UI.

    For example, after adding a database user via API, I would like to wait for the database user actually added before attempting to use the user. In the web UI, I see 2 events with all the information I need - "MongoDB user added" and "Deployment configuration published".

    When querying the project events API, I see both events (event types MONGODBUSERADDED and AUTOMATIONCONFIGPUBLISHED_AUDIT), but there are no additional fields with the new database user.

  16. Ability to download backups without requiring a token with write permissions

    I want to automate downloading the most recent continuous backup snapshot to a local machine nightly. The guys on your intercom help chat were pretty helpful in pointing me at delivery.url here:

    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/restore-jobs-create-one/

    But I was surprised that in order to download a backup, I need to use a token with write permission. It would be great for security reasons if the machine I use to download backups could do so without needing to have a write token.

  18. More useful query error

    When you enter a query, if there is any kind of syntax error, you get dumped to a page where your only option is to return to clusters. Then you need to renavigate to your db and collection to attempt a new query.

    This is really frustrating as instead of just being able to go back and correct your mistake, you must start writing the query again from scratch.

    Why not put users back where they were and restore the query they were attempting so it can be easily fixed? Or better yet, check the query before you try to…

  19. Atlas - Preferences - My Date Format - allow 24hr

    We can specify date format but the time format is limited to 12hr clock. Please allow us to specify 24hr so the activity log and rest of the UI is a little easier to read. Thanks

    I don't understand your site at all! But I would really like to move my data away from Approach as it is limiting. Windows XP is the best Os, it doesn't connect with the internet. But it has Forms which are brilliant.
