  1. 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    We have a lot of Atlas projects in our org, some are outdated, unused, orphaned, some important and used for production.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,…

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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…

  5. Time Sensitive Alerts

    I would like the ability to (optionally) set a time window for any alert. IE Alert me if average write latency rises above 500 msec from 8am to 8pm. If outside those times don't alert me.

  6. Requesting database wise billing data in a shared cluster

    Currently we developing a portal to provide cost details to each customer who are using our platform. We have shared clusters in out pre environment and need to calculate cost for each customer for lower environment.

    Better if you can provide an API call to get this database wise cost details.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow to Peer with VPC's that doesn't follow Private Networks Ranges

    Allow to Peer with VPC's that doesn't follow Private Networks Ranges

    Currently I have one infrastructure based on a VPC with the CIDR range of 30.0.0.0/16, and I'm unable to make it safe with VPC peering because of the restrictions on this.

    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/security-vpc-peering/

    I thinl that allowing to peer with any AWS VPC's that do not overlap would be nice, as it is difficult to change the VPC when you have a running infrastructure, just to integrate safely with MongoDB Atlas

  9. Fix a glitch in the web app's UI

    Just pointing out a little glitch in the UI:
    When we have very long values, the key is invisible and the field type is pushed to the side.
    Screenshot attached.

  10. Show a graph of BANKED iops (AWS)

    Atlas monitoring is great... but it would be super helpful to see a graph of banked iops. (or an approximation of this)

    Suppose my iops limit is 100... and during the night my bank gets fully charged to 5.4MM.
    During the heavy loads on my server, let's say my iops jump to a steady 500. This means that I am drawing 400 units from my bank. I can do this for 3.75 hours until my bank is exhausted.

    It would be so helpful to see an iops bank balance drawing down during peak, recharging during off-peak... and thus getting insight…

  15. undo

    A Simple Undo Function.

    A Bit Of Background Information

    Just talked to Julia from PR. Apparently "undo" is not an available feature.

    YES,

    there is a backup option for higher tier customers.

    But,

    I am not asking for a full on log of everything. Just a simple copy of the last added or deleted document in a collection for example. In case you accidentally clicked the confirm delete button on the document, your mouse was happening to hover over, when a spider jumped down from the ceiling and landed on your mouse.
    It happens.

    Besides the point.

    That functionality is

  17. Allows to share Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot with customer's Cloud Provider account

    What is the problem that needs to be solved? Add an option (as it was in mLab) that allows to share the Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot (EBS Snapshot [1], in case of AWS) for Atlas Cluster with customer's Cloud Provider account. This action is easier, quicker and cheaper for customers than manually downloading the Atlas Snapshot.

    Why is it a problem? (the pain) A) Operational pain: as of now (2020-02-18), if you require to execute disaster recovery scenario with restoration of your Atlas Cluster data outside of Atlas Clusters you'll need to create a Cloud Provider Backup Snapshot Restore job…

  18. 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.

  19. Add a single-node option.

    mLab had the option to create a single-node deployment, which was very nice for development environments where redundancy isn't important, but keeping costs down is.

    Would be nice to see this in Atlas as well.

  20. A terraform resource for managing user access to the console

    We have a platform (as code using Terraform) where we integrate Mongo Atlas in AWS. We have multiple teams with various privileges who access the Mongo Atlas console daily basis. We would always like to manage the users in our version control. As Terraform is one of the best infrastructure configuration tools, we would like to have a terraform resource in order to manage the users via.
