  1. Recovery after cluster delete

    Cloud Backups should be recoverable even after a cluster delete otherwise they can't really be considered backups. One way to do this would be to allow for automated backup downloads to customer specified cloud provider storage.

  4. Automatic backup outside Atlas

    For DR strategy, one need to have its backups outside Atlas.
    This can be achieved in several ways. Some are:
    - Provide APIs to download the current backups and let the customers automate this on their side
    - Write backups in the customer provided cloud account (aws s3, azure blob stroage...) My favorite option

    I found many ideas related to my needs, but they were too specific. This need is more general: just provide a way to have backups automatically outside of atlas.

  5. Queryable Snapshot like Cloud Manager's Continuous Backup

    Like we can do in Cloud Manager Continuous Backup, We can query a snapshot. This download an .EXE file that will create a tunnel directly to the Backup Storage and allow us to retreive the document that we need (using localhost:27017), without restoring the whole backup, or having a 2nd database, giving access to the developer, ...

  6. snapshots without indexes

    It would be great to have the option to save Atlas backup snapshots without indexes. When using TTL indexes, when the data is restored, it is automatically removed because it is expired. Being able to create snapshots without indexes would save a lot of time to the current workaround.

  7. Monthly backup

    We would like to schedule our monthly backup and 1st Sunday of every month. Currently, this option is not available via the Atlas Console. It gives options like 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th...etc of every month but not a specific day like Sunday or Monday. Please consider adding this option as it will be ideal for us to take our monthly backup on a Sunday when the database is not busy.

  8. hourly backup retention

    hourly backup retention. Why minimum a day, so 24 backups stored? For big databases, this is an amount of data and money

  9. Multi-region backups in Canada

    This is an important security requirement. Right now Cloud backups only create backups in the same region as the data replica itself. It would be a nice improvement to support backups in different regions in the same country.

  10. API access over VPC

    We have a scheduled process which starts up a GCE instance with both an internal and external IP address. This runs a script which:


    • uses the Mongo API to get the id of the latest snapshot

    • uses the Mongo API to create a restore job with HTTP delivery

    • downloads the backup and perform some verification processes on the backup.

    Currently Mongo Cloud only allows access to the Mongo API and the HTTPS download over the public Internet. This requires adding Google Cloud IP addresses to both the API key IP Access List and the Network Access IP Access List. It…

  11. Can we support multi-region or dual-region backups on GCP

    If the region is down, there is no way to pull the backups and restore in another region. With multi-region or dual-region, a customer would be able to get access to the backups.

  12. Option to take a Cloud Backup snapshot on destination cluster before restoring if Cloud Backup is enabled on it

    An option should be provided to allow a user to take a snapshot of the destination cluster of a Cloud Backup restore before the restore is performed so that they can easily "revert" the restore if they need to (by just requesting a restore using the snapshot that was taken just prior).

    It's possible to be in a situation where you've selected an incorrect snapshot for restoring or that you'd supplied the incorrect cluster for the snapshot to occur (this is less likely to happen in the UI than it is to happen programmatically via the API). Taking a snapshot…

  14. take snapshots off of the activity tab for maintenance.

    When I select the maintenance filter on the activity feed all the daily snapshots show up. I feel like there should be a backup screen that shows all the snapshots on the activity feed. this would make the maintenance screen more precise and relevant.

    . The maintenance screen should only show what software maintenance goes on the atlas clusters. This should also include all the release fixes. so, I do not have to go to your
    https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/release-notes/software releases page.

    It is very hard to tell what maintenance will be applied in a given time period. We have timeframes to apply…

  15. Accept-Range for backup download

    The backup archives can be very large, and if my download is interrupted, without Accept-Range, it is not resumable. A length header is also missing, so the downloader doesn't know the size of the archive.

  16. Vault Lock to protect Atlas Cloud Backups

    We are currently looking for a solution to secure our Atlas backups.

    Something similar to AWS Glacier Vault Lock [1] or a simple grace period before backups are deleted once and for all would be nice.

    It would be amazing to protect the Atlas backups from being deleted.
    Currently, if one of our Atlas admins was compromised, the damage for the company would be enormously high. So we need to implement measures against the final deletion of our most mission critical data.

  17. Replay the point-in-time-restore journal for debug/diagnosis

    When performing a forensic analysis for the purposes of a restore, in order to determine the appropriate point in time when our data was last "sane", it would be awesome if we could start with a point-in-time restoration, and play the journal forward, e.g. performing a bisect on the data.

  19. CronJob Live migration to second cluster in second project

    It would be great to have a feature that schedule live migration from a replica set of a PROD cluster to a DEV cluster directly in ATLAS.

    The plus of this solution are :
    - I dont need a dedicated server to do this job on my side (deploy it, configure it, script it, open network/port, etc ..)
    - I will not have to dump the whole databases from the cloud then uploading it afterwards (can be long)
    - Gain from outbound price in the cloud (more for you this one)
