  1. Allow Realm to stream application logs to Splunk (or other third party services)

    It would be ideal if there was some native way to send Realm application logs to Splunk (and other third-party log aggregation services), instead of having to build an application in a separate environment to poll this API endpoint (https://docs.mongodb.com/realm/admin/api/v3/#logging-apis) and push logs to Splunk from there.

  2. Add 1 second granularity to ATLAS metrics

    At present the finest granularity of ATLAS metrics is 1 minute ,as the metrics are averaged by 1 minute , this would not provide info on spikes lasting less than few seconds
    reducing the granularity to 1 second would give more insight

  3. Allow Pending Users to be Added to a Team

    When trying to implement Atlas infrastructure for Organization/Project users, the Teams functionality is useless unless we can add pending users to a Team. Right now, if a new user doesn't login for two weeks, we can't assign them to a Team until two weeks after the implementation was supposed to be configured.

  4. I'd like to have a scheduled mongodump backup option

    I'm coming from mLab and I'm used to having an option in my backup strategy that includes a mongodump backup as well as what Atlas calls a CPS (cloud provider snapshot). The latter is actually a snapshot of the database directory at the filesystem level, which is great for instant restores within Atlas (same or different cluster). However, the mongodump backup (from mLab as an example) allows me to backup on a regular schedule and download those backups for restores locally and elsewhere outside of Atlas.

    Yes, I can run mongodump operations myself from a system outside of Atlas, but…

  5. Ability to create database users limited to specific clusters

    We have a single project set up for our application, and multiple clusters under that project. Right now, it's impossible to create database users who only have access to certain clusters - the only configurable option is "database name".

    The issue is that some of the clusters have the same "database name" but I don't want them to be able to access a database in a specific cluster, though I do want them to access a database with the same name in a different cluster.

    Any plans to implement this?

    Folks I’m excited to share that database users scoped to particular sets of clusters (and Data Lakes) in an Atlas project is now live in Atlas!
    – It is now possible to create database users with privileges scoped to a specific set of clusters or Atlas Data Lakes in an Atlas project.
    – Existing users’ privileges can be edited to reduce their scope to a specific set of clusters or Atlas Data Lakes
    – All authentication mechanisms (SCRAM, X.509, LDAP, AWS IAM) may be used in conjunction with this ability

    Thanks for your patience: this was a long-time coming!

    Cheers
    -Andrew

  6. Third party integration resource with terraform

    Add a terraform resource for third party integrations (such as PagerDuty) to allow it to be set up.

  7. atlas portal ip whitelist

    We were given this idea from a security audit.

    From a security-in-depth perspective we would like to be able to restrict logins on the atlas portal to only whitelisted IP's, this would be analog as to how API whitelisting works at the organization level.
    This is to prevent login's other than from our permitted sites.

  8. Change M10+ cloud providers

    I would like to be able to change the cloud provider and region of a M10+ cluster.
    It would be nice also to have a per-cluster connection string that does not depend on the cloud provider. So we can change the provider and region without changing the application settings.

  9. Allow Atlas clusters to be paused using terraform

    The ability to pause Atlas clusters through terraform would help with being able to pause our non-prod environments when not in use. Currently this has to be managed directly with the Atlas API

  10. Alert when a snapshot restore succeeds/fails

    Simply send an email alert when a restore finishes (or errors).

    This is important for us because we run a restore (from prod to qa) every weekend and it takes over 14 hours. If it fails, we need to know so we can quickly kick it off again before Monday. Otherwise the QA team will be dead in the water.

  11. Allow user to specify either more date types, or arbitrary archive criteria

    Currently to configure the online archive service, you specify which column you want to use, which must be a Date type. Our collections often use integer fields holding the offset from the epoch, and there are other fields people might reasonably used.

    My suggsetion would be to allow for a diverse set of date types, or ideally, allow the user to specify the criteria themselves with a mongo query.

  12. Make it possible to add tags in the Datadog integration so I can tell my staging and production environments apart more easily

    Datadog recommends having only one account and feed data from all environments into it, and then it’s important to tell them apart by using tags.

    Please add the ability to set tags in the Datadog integration configuration, e.g. env:production

  14. Send alert when there are performance advisor recommendations

    I would like to have an alert setting when MongoDB Atlas's performance advisor has any recommendations.

    Currently there is no way to determine if the performance advisor has a suggested improvement on the main project console page.

    Our prod project has a lot of clusters(with more planned). It is cumbersome to go in and check each one manually.

    We released Performance Advisor alerts on Week of Aug 7. It is available as a default alert.

  15. Allow creation of Atlas organizations in Terraform

    there are really 3 steps for our dev teams to get moving in Atlas:
    1. create an org
    2. create a project
    3. create a cluster
    the first one is the only one that still has to be done from a console. if we had a terraform script to create an org in our account, we could trigger creation after approval in ServiceNow

  16. Change Azure snapshot backups from LRS to GRS

    Sorry but this is a must. GRS is a 2 region datacenter backup, LRS only 1. Fire or disaster will take out everything if LRS is used.

    Hello,


    We recently released a feature that we call Snapshot Distribution which allows any Atlas user to copy their backups into additional cloud provider regions that are supported in Atlas. 


    This allows you to store the backups in whatever region you prefer automatically. In the event of a disaster in a cloud provider region, Atlas will intelligently use a backup copy in an additional region for a restore.


    You can read more about this in this blog, https://www.mongodb.com/blog/post/introducing-snapshot-distribution-atlas , and our docs, https://www.mongodb.com/docs/atlas/backup/cloud-backup/scheduling/#configure-service-to-automatically-copy-snapshots-to-other-regions .

  17. YubiKey

    Please consider adding 2FA support for hardware keys (Yubikey). Our company started enforcing this in our compliance policy for accessing production environments.

  18. Add a resource to configure the backup policy for Cloud Provider Snapshots

    Please add support to change the backup policy for Cloud Provider Snapshots.

    This is the API I am referring to:
    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/cloud-provider-snapshot-schedule-modify-one/

    Thanks.

  19. SSO integration for Atlas UI

    Enabling SSO for the Atlas interface would limit the ability for outside people to gain access to our accounts. It would also provide us with enterprise tools for managing user access.

    Currently we are using Atlas credentials to log into the Atlas frontend. This appears to be a security risk long term as people could hack into our account and create/destroy resources.
