  1. Set schedules for pausing clusters

    It could be incredibly helpful if we had a way to set a schedule to pause any given cluster as well as a schedule to un-pause it. This would help with cost savings and would allow to shutdown development clusters on weekends, after hours and holidays.

  2. Ability to invalidate or revoke a X.509 certificate that was not expired.

    Currently, X.509 certificates can be issued for authentication and authorization. However, it is not possible to invalidate an already issued certificate. In a situation where the certificate would be compromised, it is therefore not possible to invalidate it and re-issue a new one. The only way is to delete the user associated with the certificate and create a new user account (New CN).

  4. Ability to search for a cluster

    As an enterprise we have many projects with many clusters in each project. Our naming convention isn't always standard so it would be helpful to be able to search for a cluster based on part of the cluster name and have the search result tell me in which project the cluster exists.

  5. LDAP support for Atlas Organization

    This is a request to support LDAP for Atlas Organizations, not just Atlas Projects. The reason would be for easier access management - when someone leaves the company and their access to the Atlas Org (or in general cloud.mongodb.com / the Atlas portal) needs to be revoked, it would be easier to manage this from the LDAP console.

    An alternate solution would be the ability to add IP addresses to an access list at the Atlas Org level (not just Project level.) Then when someone leaves the company, their IP address could easily be removed from the Atlas Org and…

  6. Add Cluster name to process list api

    Currently the processes API (https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/processes-get-all/) returns only the ReplicaSet name of the process not the cluster name, while the cluster API (https://docs.atlas.mongodb.com/reference/api/clusters-get-all/) returns the replicaset name only in the MongoDB URI.

    If you have multiple clusters in the same Atlas project and you list the processes is difficult to make an association between MongoDB processes and the Cluster (Atlas UI name)

    Would be nice to have also the cluster name in the processes api

  7. Dynamically switch primary between multi-region clusters based on client request locality

    Consider an application that uses a multi-region implementation in an active/passive configuration - we'll call the regions "A" and "B" and assume they're located on opposite ends of the continental US. This application also leverages a multi-region Atlas cluster with single nodes in region A and B. Both the application and Primary node of the Atlas cluster are operating out of region A.
    If something were to cause the application to fail-over from region A to B but that trigger did not include a complete regional outage, the Atlas cluster's primary would still be operating in region A. This is…

  8. mongomirror with db rename

    We have a need to rename our databases as we sync them over to Atlas. However, mongomirror doesn't support that. So that leaves us with mongodump and mongorestore but our databases are large enough that we can't take the outage window necessary to go down that path. When will mongomirror support renaming databases during the import process?

  9. Access Total Memory from Mongo clusters

    Could the MongoDB metrics available in Datadog get expanded to include total memory? For setting up thresholds to track the resident memory of each client, it would be ideal to standardize these thresholds across clients. To do so would require displaying resident memory as a percentage, which would the total memory to calculate for each client. Please let me know if total memory can be a metric available in the Datadog integration or perhaps how I can find it if it already exist or can be created.

  10. Stream profiler data to external services

    Currently there doesn't seem to be a way to set up custom alerts and monitoring on specific metrics such as when the size of documents returned form a query exceeds a certain limit, even though that information is available through the Profiler when looking at query samples.

    It would be very useful to be able to either configure these metrics to be sent to an external service like Loggly for better monitoring and alerts or allowing to create customized alerts/webhooks within Atlas that would be triggered based on a custom-specified condition.

  11. Expose Collection TTL in the UI

    It is very difficult to discover the TTL of a given collection. It would be great if the TTLs for each collection was visible in the collection UI.

  12. Please allow for showing most recently added to collection first.

    Right now collections are only shown first added first. I think it would be useful to be able to look at the last added first.

  13. Provide an option to disable password auth for database users

    Currently, it is not possible securely create a user in a terraform DevOps pipeline, since "Passwords may show up in Terraform related logs" according to the documentation. If the password was no longer required to create a user, we could avoid this issue by only using certificate authentication.

  14. Enable Compression

    We would like to see better compression for data stored in the Online Archive.
    Data in our cluster is compressed very well using the WiredTiger storage engine.
    Moving it out into the archive grows our data size by almost 4x.

  15. Renaming DATABASE without dump/restore

    Hello,

    after a discussion with a MongoDB architect during a consulting day, the rename of a database was possible in previous version of MongoDB but now, it's impossible without a dump / restore process.

    We don't want use a dump/restore process to rename a database because it's use a lot of time.

    Could you tell me why this feature was deleted ? and will it be possible in a future MongoDb version ?

    thanks.
    regards,
    David.

  16. efficient backup restore between MongoAtlas Projects

    Hello,

    currently, when we restore a SNAPSHOT from one cluster to another cluster in the same MongoAtas Project (example from "production" project to "production" project), this is very efficient (several minutes).

    On the other hand, if we execute the same backup restore from one cluster to another cluster on another MongoAtlas project (example : from "production" project to "staging" project), this is much less efficient and it will take several hours (instead of several minutes above).

    This is very efficient in the same MongoAtlas project because it will use cloud provider system using hard disk management.

    Could you improve efficiency…

  17. Option to group Profiler records by query pattern

    The Profiler shows slow query statistics grouped by namespace, but it would also be helpful to view query records grouped by query pattern (perhaps similar to the "pattern" group option in mplotqueries: http://blog.rueckstiess.com/mtools/mplotqueries.html#group-by) and/or by specific fields used in the query.

    This could be helpful, for example, for identifying particular query shapes that are executing slowly or suboptimally so that these can be investigated in more detail.

  18. Show index build percentage in the UI

    During an index build from atlas the only status update you see is:
    "We are deploying your changes (current action: configuring MongoDB)"

    When checking the logs of the replicaset memeber you can actually see the percentage of completion on that member of the replicaset:

    2020-11-25T11:15:44.002+0000 I - [conn12] Index Build: 54798100/206784433 26%

    It would be nice to have this percentage displayed through the UI.

  19. Lower Roles Should be able to access RealTime Performance Panel

    As an Ops person, access to the Realtime Dashboard Role is important, but it seems like in order to see it, you actually need access to the data itself. Is there a role that can give us that realtime monitoring without requiring access to the data explorer? I can access Profiler and Performance Advisor without those restrictions so it isn't clear as to why I can't also access the RealTime Performance Panel. Both of those show as much or possibly more information with regards to collections, documents, indices, etc than what appears on the RealTime Performance Panel.

  20. Show max IOPS line on IOPS graphs

    When monitoring disk IOPS, it isn't immediately clear when we are limited on IOPS. Having a red limit line on the IOPS chart on the metrics tab would help here.
