  1. Support tags on Mongo databases

    I have been supporting multiple projects/clusters with databases from different business units.

    I'd like the ability to tag databases using a key value pair - similar to GCP, Azure, AWS. Tags will help us organise and understand what's running in our clusters and ensuring a more efficient/granular billing process.

  4. 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.

  5. Backup Policy change approvals

    The Backup Policy configuration shows a checkbox allowing the altered backup policy to affect all prior backups. The problem with this is that someone could accidentally (or maliciously) delete all prior backups.

    This feature request would include implementing some sort of multi level approval prior to enacting said recursive backup policy changes (affecting prior backup snapshots).

    Hello,

    I am pleased to announce that we have addressed your concern of accidental or malicious deletion of all backups in a cluster. We have released our backup feature called Backup Compliance Policy, that protects your backups from being deleted by any user, ensuring WORM and full immutability (can not be edited/modified or deleted) for backups automatically in Atlas.


    Backup Compliance Policy allows organizations to configure a project-level policy to prevent the deletion of backups before a predefined period, guarantee all clusters have backup enabled, ensure that all clusters have a minimum backup retention and schedule policy in place, and more.


    With these controls, you can more easily satisfy data protection requirements (e.g., AppJ, DORA, immutable / WORM backups, etc.) without the need for manual processes.


    Please note that the Backup Compliance Policy can not be disabled without MongoDB support once enabled so please make sure to read our…

  6. killop

    I have read the other two suggestions on providing more killOp() and read Andrew's comment on the difficulties in the medium term.

    I just watched a situation where a primary became unresponsive and the queues piled up. The solution was to cause an election, but the dba wanted to kill operations by user (the application user) and couldn't.

    It would be nice to have something more than the real-time panel, which in this situation had become unresponsive as well so it was no use, such as a DBA console where an authorized dba could kill operations started by other users.

  7. Improve OKTA Location Detection

    Hi,

    This is really a message for your security / authentication engineers.

    When you use Okta PUSH MFA, the popup on my mobile device reads "Did you just try to sign in? near Ashburn, Virginia, United States"

    I am not near Ashburn, that's your server location. We use Okta Push at our company and had the same issue. It's a simple fix, tell your engineers to add:

    'X-Forwarded-For': <users ip>,
    

    With the user IP address that is sent to Okta, and it should geolocate properly. This is a small, albeit actual security issue with MongoDB, as I cannot safely differentiate…

  8. Allow to create/manage Private Endpoints for Data Lake / Online Archive

    There's an API for these resources, but Terraform Provider lacks support of them:

    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/online-archive-private-link-create-one/
    https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/online-archive-private-link-get-one/

    This would be useful for managing full cycle of Network access to Data Lakes

  9. Create Organization using API or terraform in Atlas

    I support multiple business units (BU) within our company. Each BU uses multiple applications & teams. In order to offer service in Atlas, through automation, there is no option in Atlas to create/ delete Organization dynamically. It allows managing Projects and below.

    It will be good to add this feature to create/ delete Organization dynamically.

    It will also be good to manage, ie to create different Accounts dynamically (like AWS/GCP).

    This will help to have separate account & organization, for each BU to manage billing and manage the consumption, through automation.

    Thanks

  10. Allow editing default project alerts via terraform

    For instance, the default Query Targeting alert is set at a 1000:1 ratio. I would like to have the default alert set to 5000:1 for a project via terraform.

  12. Restore snapshots on s3 back to atlas cluster

    Currently we store Atlas snapshots on S3 for D.R purposes as well as for compliance reasons.

    There was a scenario where an instance was deleted by mistake, and once an instance is deleted all of the atlas managed backup snapshots were gone. In order to restore the Atlas instance we had to do the following:

    1) create a new atlas instance

    2) restore the snapshot from s3 to a temporary mongodb database and then do a dump and restore in order to migrate the data back into the new atlas instance.

    This is a time-consuming process, so if there is…

    Hello,


    I would like to update everyone on some changes we have made over the last couple of quarters that resolves multiple parts of the overall goal here, in addition to the methods Ben outlined in the past


    First, is Import Archive from S3 in Atlas. This walks you through how to import an archive from S3 back into Atlas.


    In addition to this we now have other protections around cluster and backup deletion protection to protect against human error but also to ensure you can comply with various requirements automatically in Atlas. 


    You now have an option to retain all backups when terminating an M10+ cluster.

    - When you terminated a cluster through the Atlas Ui, on the termination confirmation pop up, you will now see an additional toggle labeled "Keep existing snapshots after termination". If you select this option when terminating your cluster, all of your…

  15. Support tags on Mongo projects

    I support multiple orgs and projects falling under my enterprise. I'd like the ability to tag projects using a key value pair - similar to GCP, Azure, AWS. Tags will help us organise and understand what's running in our projects.

    Basic functionality that operates on tags will be helpful like filtering projects and enhanced billing that can group costs based on a tag would be beneficial.

    Right now, we need to add cost metadata to the project name, which is the only place where we can do so.

    I'm happy to share that this capability is now available in Atlas. You can use the Admin API or Atlas UI to add tags to new or existing projects. This functionality will be extended to Terraform and the Atlas CLI in the near future.

  16. Add possibility to invite api key(s) to newly created projects

    For different types of automation, api key(s) must be added to project(s). It would be helpful if it could be possible to add existing api key(s) to new projects using mongodbatlas\_project terraform resource, example:
    resource "mongodbatlas_project" "test" {
    name = "project-name"
    org_id = "<ORG\_ID>"

    teams {
    team_id = "5e0fa8c99ccf641c722fe645"
    role_names = ["GROUP_OWNER"]

    }
    api_key {
    public_key = "xyzxyzxy"
    role_names = ["GROUP_READ_ONLY"]
    }
    }

  18. 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.

    Hello,


    I am pleased to announce that in Atlas you now have an option to retain all backups when terminating an M10+ cluster.


    When you terminated a cluster through the Atlas Ui, on the termination confirmation pop up, you will now see an additional toggle labeled "Keep existing snapshots after termination". If you select this option when terminating your cluster, all of your backups for that cluster will be retained.


    You can also choose to retain you backups for a cluster when deleting a cluster through the Atlas Administration API. When deleting a cluster through the API, you can include the retainBackups parameter and this will retain all of your backups after termination as well.


    You can view or use the backups from a terminated (or other active) M10+ cluster by selecting the "Backup" tab in the left side navigation of the Atlas UI.


    As I mentioned…

  19. 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.

  20. in the explorer -> 'Global Writes' tab: compound shard key should support unique index property

    set the compound index created during the Global Cluster configuration to be set as unique

    today there is no option for that and it's a very basic need for those who using global clusters.
