  1. Allow configuration of Data Federation via Terraform

    The mongodbatlas_data_lake (which should be renamed to reflect the new Data Federation name) doesn't allow you to specify the configuration. Without it, there is little value in having the resource defined in terraform at all.

    This issue: https://github.com/mongodb/terraform-provider-mongodbatlas/issues/561 was created over a year ago to ask for this. A comment from MongoDB indicates its in the plan, just wanted to provide a vote for it.

  4. Pausing MongoDB Atlas Cluster with option of start/end time

    There is a parameter available for cluster resource to pause the cluster. With this parameter, we have to flip the status from pause to unpause whenever needed.

    I am looking for separate resource (like maintenance window) where one can configure to pause the cluster for specific window (start/end time)

    Example: I want to pause all non-prod clusters by Friday evening 5 PM EST and resume the cluster 7 AM EST. With trigger it is possible, but we do have hundreds of deployments. It would be great if we have resource where customer can specify their own timing to pause and…

  5. Create Atlas App Services and Link Them To Clusters with Terraform

    It would be great to create App Services (Realm Apps) and then create the service link to an Atlas Cluster with Terraform.

    This is so that Trigger resources can be created fully within Terraform, rather than having to hack together API calls, CLI commands or manual steps.

  7. Add Terraform resource for functions

    Would be great to have a terraform resource like mongodbatlas_function.
    Was mentioned here https://github.com/mongodb/terraform-provider-mongodbatlas/issues/828 but I didn't find the idea mentioned there, so I added this one here.

  8. A way to enable the Data API via Terraform

    I just noticed that MongoDB Data API is no longer in beta (Congrats!). It think it would be quite useful if the there was a way to enable this option programmatically via Terraform.

  12. Make the app_id optional in the mongodbatlas_event_trigger resource when an aws_eventbridge event processor is defined

    Currently, when you define a trigger that uses the AWS Eventbridge via the UI it auto creates a realm App that links the DB change to the event bridge.

    However, with the mongodbatlaseventtrigger resource you have to manually defined an empty realm app and give the resource the app_id of that empty app.

    This is obviously not a 100% automated process.

    This could be, if the provider created the empty realm app by itself, then referencing the created app app_id.

    This would only be needed:
    1. when the appid is not provided
    2. the following attribute was

  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. Atlas does not automatically rotate the Key Version Resource ID used for Google Cloud key management.

    Basically, when a new version of the key is being created in GCP, Atlas Terraform provider does not accept primary or newest value for version argument.

    We cannot use the data source to filter on the version that is primary or the "newest" https://registry.terraform.io/providers/hashicorp/google/latest/docs/data-sources/kms_crypto_key_version, it will default to 1. We have to specify the version #. But we need this to be fully automated.

    I found this issue which seems to show the same situation, but it’s from 2020…
    https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform-provider-google/issues/5688

    MongoDB Support mentioned we could use the AWS KMS which supports automatic key rotation.

    So we are suggesting implementing…

  15. Terraform integration to manage project's API keys

    Hello team,

    we're still missing the capability to create project's API keys via terraform and have to deal with some python scripts to automatically provision new keys in dynamic way(when new projects come up).

    I know this question has been already asked and your idea is to use Vault, but probably it's not good idea to install this heavy tool for the single application...and we can't use Vault in dynamic way because it doesn't contain 'MongodbAtlas Secret Engine' available via terraform provider.

    Please consider to add possibility of creation API keys via terraform and let us decide whether it's security…

  16. Add support for profile configuration file in the Terraform provider

    To be able to quickly change which account we use for the Terraform provider without having the keys in the terraform variables, supporting profile config file like what aws does for it's provider would be a great help for us.

  17. mongodbatlas_cluster should wait until cluster is operational

    mongodbatlas_cluster is regarded "created" before it's operational, which breaks things if you need to use attributes that aren't yet available, like connection_strings.

    This issue is acknowledged in the provider docs:

    connection_strings - Set of connection strings that your applications use to connect to this cluster. More info in Connection-strings. Use the parameters in this object to connect your applications to this cluster. To learn more about the formats of connection strings, see Connection String Options. NOTE: Atlas returns the contents of this object after the cluster is operational, not while it builds the cluster.

    (...)

    Private connection strings may…

  18. Backup Snapshot datasource and Restore Job resource and datasource for Shared clusters

    The following resources/datasources work only for dedicated clusters (M10 and above).

    mongodbatlascloudbackupsnapshots
    mongodbatlas
    cloudbackupsnapshotrestorejob

    This is because they call the /backup/snapshots and
    /backup/restoreJobs Atlas API endpoints respectively.

    There are different API endpoint for shared-tier clusters (M2/M5):
    /backup/tenant/snapshots
    /backup/tenant/restores

    Would it be possible to have new equivalent datasources/resources for shared-tier clusters or modify the existing datasources/resources to accommodate shared-tier clusters?

    Thanks in advance.

  19. mongodbatlas_cloud_backup_snapshot_restore_job should wait until the restore operation is complete

    mongodbatlascloudbackupsnapshotrestorejob creates a job and returns immediately , but I think it should wait until the restore operation is complete. just like mongodbatlascluster that waits until the cluster is in ready state.

  20. Allow setting of advanced server parameters such as disable flow control, ttlMonitor and redactClientLogData

    For some more advanced/demanding use cases, advanced server parameters are key to provide the performance/latency or security that applications will require, either due to contractual or complaince obligations.

    FlowControl throttles writes for consistency sake, but for very low latency use cases it becomes a factor for "perceived" client SLO breach. In such particular scenarios, the cost consistent across all replicas is higher than low latency reply.

    redactClientLogData is important to ensure complaince with several sectors such has identity management.

    TTL monitor should be able to be controled via API call to better manage the migrations between self-managed clusters and Atlas.
